Will Someone Please Turn Up The Heat?
As I write this, Sunday January 15, I am projecting some bit of prophetic knowledge and wisdom for the very near future.
I speak of two things;
1. Tomorrow there are 70 UN member nations gathering together in Paris to "work on" the "Israeli issue."
2. The US has given assurances to Israel that we are going to move our Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Now, in the midst of all of this out-going President Obama is doing everything he can do keep his name in the forefront of the world. He has recently extended sanctions against Russia for an additional year, which he didn't need to do...they were set to expire in March of this year. Obama also very deliberately abstained on the recent UN vote in which the UN decided to make illegal Jews living in certain parts of Israel.
So, the next few days are going to be pretty dang unsettling.
What can we expect?
This meeting of the 72 nations, just might be a huge waste of time or the anti-zionists might put on a full court press to remove Israel once and for all. I expect Obama to go against Israel. This would do two things, first it tells Prime Minister Netanyahu to fuck off...this is something that Obama is good at after all, he is the leader of the Snowflake Rebellion. And secondly it throws up to President Trump another roadblock to a smooth transition.
Netanyahu: Paris peace conference is 'useless'
Paris (CNN)Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has labeled an international peace conference in Paris aimed at solving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as "useless".
The conference, which is being attended by some 70 countries, started Sunday morning to discuss how to bring both sides to the negotiating table and maintain support for a two-state solution. The conference is expected to last one day.
Neither Israel nor the Palestinian government are represented at the conference, and Netanyahu told his cabinet meeting Sunday that the talks were "among the last twitches of yesterday's world."
"It is being coordinated between the French and the Palestinians," he said.
"Its goal is to try and force terms on Israel that conflict with our national needs. Of course it pushes peace further away because it hardens the Palestinian positions and it also pushes them away from direct negotiations without preconditions.
"I must say that this conference is among the last twitches of yesterday's world. Tomorrow's world will be different -- and it is very near," said Netanyahu seemingly referencing the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump in five days.
Meanwhile, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas welcomed the conference at the opening of the Palestinian embassy in the Vatican on Saturday.
"We praise the role of President (Francois) Hollande and the French government in organizing this international conference, and we call upon the participants to take concrete measures in order to implement international law and UN resolutions," Abbas said.
The talks, hosted by France, are aimed at restarting some level of negotiations after the last round of talks collapsed in 2014.
Jean-Marc Ayrault, the French foreign minister, told delegates, "there is no time to lose" over a solution.
"It is not the time to stop; the emergency remains," he said.
"The parties remain very distanced in a relationship of defiance, which is particularly dangerous, and no one is immune to a new explosion of violence."
The conference comes amid rising tensions between Israeli and Palestinian leaders following December's passing of a UN Security Council resolution that condemned Israeli settlement construction.
The Security Council approved the resolution with 14 votes, with the US abstaining.
Israel fears the recommendations of the conference could turn into another Security Council resolution during the Obama administration's final days in office
The gathering of the nations to divide Israel, which is exactly what this is, is not a good idea. God expressly declares His anger and judgment from nations who try to do this.
An old map of Jerusalem...notice where the Valley Of Jehosaphat is located
From Joel Rosenbergs blog
A MESSAGE OF WARNING TO THE NATIONS: DO NOT DIVIDE THE LAND OF ISRAEL
The Bible is crystal clear: the Lord Almighty will judge all nations who divide the Land of Israel.In Joel 3:2, the Lord says: “I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat. Then I will enter into judgment with them there on behalf of My people and My inheritance, Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; and they have divided up My land.” (3:2)
Nevertheless, international pressure on Israel to carve up the Holy Land like a Thanksgiving turkey continues to build following President Obama’s May 2011 speech calling for Israel to withdraw to the 1967 borders.
Nearly every world leader — and certainly every American president since the Six Day War — has demanded Israel give up significant amounts of territory within Judea, Samaria, and the Golan Heights in order to create a sovereign Palestinian state and make peace with Syria, but never this much territory.
The Obama plan would force Israel to give it all up, to divide Jerusalem, and return to indefensible borders.
This would be a grave error.
It would severely jeopardize Israeli national security. It would do so in direct defiance of the Holy Scriptures. And it would draw the judgment of the Lord Almighty against the United States and all other countries involved in the process.
The other item I mentioned is the move of the Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Expect that to be a really big deal.
Already Jordan has officially said this.
Moving US Embassy to Jerusalem is 'red line,' Jordan warns
HOUSE OVERWHELMINGLY VOTES TO CONDEMN UNITED NATIONS RESOLUTION ON ISRAEL SETTLEMENTS
Such a move could affect relations between the U.S. and regional allies, including Jordan, Information Minister Mohammed Momani told The Associated Press, addressing the issue publicly for the first time.
An embassy move would be a "red line" for Jordan, would "inflame the Islamic and Arab streets" and serve as a "gift to extremists," he said, adding that Jordan would use all possible political and diplomatic means to try and prevent such a decision.
PALESTINIAN PRESIDENT URGES TRUMP NOT TO MOVE EMBASSY
The U.S. considers pro-Western Jordan as an important ally in a turbulent Mideast. The Hashemite kingdom is a key member of a U.S.-led military coalition against Islamic State extremists in neighboring Syria and Iraq, and maintains discreet security ties with Israel.
Jordan also has a stake in Jerusalem, serving as custodian of Islam's third holiest shrine in the city's eastern sector.
Jordan has made no threat to incoming President Trump, but the King Abdullah ll isn't a pussy. He is a F-16 pilot and has flown combat missions over Syria. Keep in mind that Jordan, is Biblically very important in these last days.
Here is an article you might be interested in perusing.
The reality of many biblical events is hotly debated among archaeologists. We’re familiar with many of the debates regarding Israel, but what about neighboring Jordan? The Bible says several kings arose there and opposed Israel. Can the Bible be trusted?

So, we should be celebrating a new Administration, and instead we hear the ominous drum beat that we are still headed down the wrong road.
We really need to keep President Trump and his family in prayer, the forces of this world are certainly arrayed against everything Israel.
