A Cup Of Drunkenness
Yesterdays non-veto vote at the UN from the United States, sent a clear message to the world at large, they don't regard Israel...at all.
It has been evident through the past eight years that Obama has no love at all for Israel, or the Jewish people. It is a huge conundrum for us Christians here in the States as to why the Jews would even think of backing Obama but they do. Makes no sense to us.
It is also apparent to the Christians that Israel is right in the midst of fulfilling Bible Prophecy.
Lets look at it.
Jesus came and was rejected by His people and nation Israel. God gave the responsibility of sharing His message to followers of Yeshua, Jesus.
God allowed the Romans to lay waste to Jerusalem and He dispersed the Jews across the world. He did not allow His chosen people the Jews to be utterly destroyed. Instead He has given them unique talents to survive while Christ has built His Church over this past 2,000 years.
To the Jew, they have no mind for their Messiah, God says in His word that a blindness has come over the Jew.
Fast forward to 1948. Israel is reborn, from almost 2,000 years of destruction. The land was in a state of desolation.
Mark Twain visited the land in 1867. He wrote about the Jew and the Land. I'll let his words speak
On The Jew
His contributions to the world’s list of great names in literature, science, art, music, finance, medicine and abstruse learning are also very out of proportion to the weakness of his numbers. He has made a marvelous fight in this world in all ages; and has done it with his hands tied behind him. He could be vain of himself and be excused for it. The Egyptians, the Babylonians and the Persians rose, filled the planet with sound and splendor, then faded to dream-stuff and passed away; the Greeks and Romans followed and made a vast noise, and they were gone; other people have sprung up and held their torch high for a time but it burned out, and they sit in twilight now, and have vanished.
The Jew saw them all, survived them all, and is now what he always was, exhibiting no decadence, no infirmaties, of age, no weakening of his parts, no slowing of his energies, no dulling of his alert but aggressive mind. All things are mortal but the Jews; all other forces pass, but he remains. What is the secret of his immortality? "
- September 1897 (Quoted in The National Jewish Post & Observer, June 6, 1984)
“ ...[a] desolate country whose soil is rich enough, but is given over wholly to weeds-a silent mournful expanse....A desolation is here that not even imagination can grace with the pomp of life and action....We never saw a human being on the whole route....There was hardly a tree or a shrub anywhere. Even the olive and the cactus, those fast friends of the worthless soil, had almost deserted the country.”
- 1867 (Quoted in Mark Twain, The Innocents Abroad. London: 1881)
God says to the Land
Ezekiel 36: 6-12
7 Therefore thus says the Lord God: “I have raised My hand in an oath that surely the nations that are around you shall bear their own shame.
8 But you, O mountains of Israel, you shall shoot forth your branches and yield your fruit to My people Israel, for they are about to come.
9 For indeed I am for you, and I will turn to you, and you shall be tilled and sown.
10 I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel, all of it; and the cities shall be inhabited and the ruins rebuilt.
11 I will multiply upon you man and beast; and they shall increase and bear young; I will make you inhabited as in former times, and do better for you than at your beginnings. Then you shall know that I am the Lord.
12 Yes, I will cause men to walk on you, My people Israel; they shall take possession of you, and you shall be their inheritance; no more shall you bereave them of children.”
God said He was going to bring Israel back into the land, and in 1948 this happened. A reading of Ezekiel 36-39 will detail what has already happened in our lifetime and what IS coming on Israel.
Now, lets look at yesterday.
The UN told Israel they cannot build in their land. The old names are Judea and Jerusalem. What does God say about this?
Zechariah 12: 1-3
12 The burden[a] of the word of the Lord against Israel. Thus says the Lord, who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him:
2 “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem.
3 And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.
To the UN, I would say to be aware that your actions are against God Himself. You will lose.

This obscenity, on the eve of Chanukah, when the ancient Israelites freed the Holy City and the Second Temple from pagans, should have been immediately vetoed by Israel’s ally, the United States. Instead, President Obama stood aside as the UN Security Council voted unanimously for a measure which has the force of international law.
Ostensibly aimed at Israeli settlements on the disputed West Bank, which should be subject to direct negotiations with the Palestinians, the text declaims that Israeli presence on “territory occupied since 1967, including East Jerusalem, has no legal validity and constitutes a flagrant violation under international law and a major obstacle to the achievement of the two-State solution and a just, lasting and comprehensive peace.”
In the real world outside the Turtle Bay nuthouse dominated by dictators and tyrants, a “just, lasting and comprehensive peace” will come only when, after decades of avoiding talks, Palestinians sit down with Israel and cut a deal.
It’s going to be hard for both sides, but Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and all of his predecessors back to 1948 have waited for an Arab partner. Netanyahu is still waiting. Now, the Palestinians and their weak, corrupt leader, Abu Mazen, will believe they will never have to negotiate since the UN has already decided.
Settlements are not the problem. The lack of peace is. And there is no peace because Netanyahu is sitting at the peace table by himself.
Instead of making a two-state future more likely, Obama has done the opposite.
While it’s true that only one President serves at a time, Donald Trump was absolutely right to demand a veto. As was the GOP leadership in Congress. As was Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer. But Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, who is frustrated that he’s not going to get a Nobel Peace Prize to match Obama’s, didn’t care.
So Obama and Kerry broke with decades of American practice and let the wolves at Israel.
Israeli Ambassador Danny Danon, outnumbered and without even a vote, asked: “Would you ban the French from building in Paris?” But logic didn’t prevail. Illogic hatred for the Jewish state did.
Who cares that right next door to Israel in Syria, a bloodbath is displacing millions? It’s time to get the Jews because America has stood down.
Not everyone is unhappy. The terrorists of Hamas, who control Gaza like a prison, cheered: “We emphasize the need to turn such a resolution into action, not only to halt settlements but to eradicate Israel’s occupation in all its forms.”
That means, after Jerusalem is cleared of Jews, next up is Tel Aviv.
What a nice Chanukah gift from Obama to the people of Israel.
It is my prayer that God will not split our land like we just voted to split HIS land.
Remember we have a massive earthquake fault zone which runs smack dab in the middle of the US from the Gulf of Mexico to almost Canada.
The New Madrid Fault Zone
Most of the major earthquakes in the world occur at tectonic plate boundaries where land masses are colliding or pushing past one another. But in the middle of the country lurks a geological enigma near New Madrid, Missouri, that has produced some of the largest quakes on record for the United States but has yet to be fully explained by scientists.
"It’s a big mystery," said geologist Eugene Schweig of the U.S. Geological Survey, who has studied the area for 23 years. "New Madrid is about as far from a plate boundary as you can get."
In 1811 and 1812, a swarm of at least three massive earthquakes struck near New Madrid, the largest of which exceeded a magnitude 8 and caused violent, damaging shaking in an area 10 times larger than did the 1906 earthquake. The quake was felt over an area of two million square miles — nearly two-thirds of the country.
During the quakes, the ground rose and fell, trees were bent, deep cracks opened up in the ground, large landslides swept down hills, huge waves washed boats out of the Mississippi River and river banks, islands and sand bars gave way.
We have played with fire, God have mercy on us.
