On January 15, in Paris, at France’s lame duck President Francois Hollande’s is convening an international conference, for the foreign ministers of various states to discuss the Israel-Palestine situation. I’ve read different numbers on how many states will be represented, between fifty and seventy. The concern is they will adopt as their own the anti-Israel principles Secretary of State John Kerry set forth in his speech on Israel and Palestine.
Then President Obama is expected to address the subject in a Martin Luther King Jr. Day speech. Finally, the fear is that sometime between January 17 and 19, Obama intends for the UN Security Council to reconvene and follow the Paris conference by adopting Kerry’s positions as a new Security Council resolution. That follow-on resolution may also recognize “Palestine” and grant it full membership in the UN.
To scuttle another resolution, Israel needs to convince seven members of the Security Council not to support it. Only measures that secure the support of 9 out of 15 Security Council members are permitted to come to a vote. The states that are most susceptible to Israeli lobbying are Italy, Ethiopia, Japan, Egypt, Uruguay, Kazakhstan, Ukraine and Russia.
Zechariah 12:2-3 (AMP)
“Behold, I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that causes reeling (staggering) to all the surrounding peoples; and when the siege is against Jerusalem, it will also be against Judah. And in that day I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples; all who lift it will be severely injured. And all the nations of the earth will come and be gathered against it.
Our Father in heaven,
The people of Israel are the chosen people, the apple of Your eye. We bless Your chosen people. We bless the state of Israel.
We pray that the nations will not gather against Jerusalem and Judah. Speak to the leaders of the nations in supernatural ways. Stir in them an understanding of Your holy words.
If they are so stupid as to be a curse to Israel, then let the consequences fall on the leaders who make these decisions, not the common people who fear You.
We pray for supernatural wisdom for the nations of the world, especially Italy, Ethiopia, Japan, Egypt, Uruguay, Kazakhstan, Ukraine and Russia.
We pray for mercy for the United States of America, especially Mississippi. Amen.
