WE HAD PLANNED on dwelling in Jerusalem these next three weeks. A lingering check from the Lord kept this pursuit at a distance, probably for the better. Because what I feel to share today I’m not sure I would be comfortable sharing from Zion, even though it is all about Zion. These issues diplomatically are very delicate. And occasionally violent.
It’s just after midnight now. Let me preface this by saying it takes an urgent cause to provoke me to write on the night of our anniversary. But after our conference call I could find no rest.
UN: Empowering Anti-Semitism
Later today the United Nations will vote to impose its will on Jerusalem. If memory serves, this congress of global governance convened this time last year for a similar pursuit. Right around the anniversary of the date in which Antiochus Epiphanes sacrificed a pig in the Temple of God, dedicating it to Zeus and Baal, the UN Security council voted to declare the Western Wall as Palestinian land illegally occupied by Israel.
Former President Obama pushed the declaration through.
And as we approach the final moments of Hanukkah 2017, the elite of nations gathering once again around a similar quest. This time attempting to counter President Donald Trump’s simple acknowledgement of reality. Honoring Jerusalem as the historic and present capital of Israel.
Right now a midnight cry is again resounding from Heaven. My spirit is consumed with a prophetic warning.
Countering anti-Israel sentiment is actually countering anti-semitism itself. Especially when it is advanced through the global convocation of the United Nations. The dramatic, unmistakeable rise of anti-semitism in Europe and the nations mandates for us all an immediate response of prayer and action. Like Churchill in his hour, President Trump has taken his stand. We must honor the mantle and now take ours.
The Globalist Pursuit of Jerusalem
According to the darkened theology of the United Nations, Jerusalem was never supposed to be the restored capital of Israel. It was instead supposed to be a capital city of the globe. In the resolution decreeing Israel into existence on November 29, 1947, the United Nations also claimed Jerusalem as an international city under its own jurisdiction.
When a friend first informed me of this I thought it was just a whispered conspiracy embraced by only a handful of UN leaders and global elites. But my assumption proved patently false. In a recent Fox News interview, former UN ambassador John Bolton informed us that from the beginning, the plan for Jerusalem was to for her to be an international city under UN jurisdiction. A Wikipedia article called “Corpus Separatum (Jerusalem)” details their plan. The resolution “Resolves that the Holy Places…in Palestine should be protected and free access to them assured,…; that arrangements to this end should be under effective United Nations supervision…”
Jerusalem, an international city. A seat of global government covertly rooted in globalist idolatry. “Many religions forming one altar to the great architect of the universe,” as they say.
The primary pursuit of this globalist expression of idolatry remains the capturing of the only city and space on the planet which God expressly claims as His earthly throne. We cannot forget this. “For the Lord has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His habitation. ‘This is My resting place forever; Here I will dwell, for I have desired it…’” (Psalm 132:13-14).
Nor can we forget that the ultimate empowerment of globalist idolatry always unleashes anti-Semitism, elitism, racism and subjugation. Even if cloaked in benign humanism, it is lethal to the core. Just ask those who suffered under Nazi persecution.
Jesus warned about those who would claim Zion and the Temple Mount for their idolatry. Referencing the prophet Daniel, he told His followers to run for the hills when you see the “abomination which causes desolation” standing in the holy place (Matthew 24). By no means is it time for this yet.
UN: Remember the Shoah!
Against all odds, Jerusalem was secured by Israeli forces in 1967. Even the Temple Mount was restored to Israeli sovereignty. And Jerusalem became the viable capital not of the United Nations, but of Israel for the first time since Biblical days.
Restoring Israel’s national sovereignty was the primary quest of the Maccabees who experienced the miracle of Hanukkah in their day. They restored their Temple to the Lord, and the nation turned as a result.
Watch this now. Preserving Israel’s national sovereignty, including her right to Jerusalem, is a primary quest of the Maccabees of today.
Jews and Christians could certainly justify Jerusalem’s restoration as Israel’s capital on scriptural grounds alone. But an even greater reality, an even greater social responsibility has seemingly been forgotten in the midst of the rancor and debate holding the world captive.
Israel was birthed out of the horrors of the Holocaust, or Shoah. At the time, many European nations felt a moral responsibility to provide a homeland for the Jews that they and their leaders had ultimately betrayed. Further, shipping the survivors of the Shoah to Israel avoided many awkward legal settlements with friends and colleagues who preyed upon their Jewish neighbors.
Because contrary to popular belief, it wasn’t only the Nazis who betrayed them.
And in any case, the Shoah survivors and the land they emigrated to were both guaranteed to fail. Neighboring Arab nations would see to that. And this time the pillaging of the Jews would no longer be their responsibility; the results would be similar, but the blood would not be on European hands. The conflict envisioned would even provide a viable excuse for UN military intervention. Jerusalem could be reclaimed, with the UN bringing peace. An easy and morally justifiable pathway for the city of God’s Throne to become the seat of global governance for the United Nations.
Against all expectations, against all odds, this tattered army of Holocaust survivors and the dispersed of the earth soon gained the miraculous breakthroughs which defined the military legacy of their forefathers. They joined the ranks of Moses and Joshua, of Gideon and David and the Maccabees. Israel not only survived, but thrived.
And in 1967, Jerusalem was reclaimed—not by the intervention of UN troops, but by the intervention of the Lord of hosts and His people.
For Zion’s Sake
That said, it’s only been seventy years since Israel became a nation. And only 73 years since the horror of the Shoah was fully revealed in the waning hours of the Second World War. Once again the nations who finally bequeathed justice to the Jewish are now on the precipice of another great betrayal.
How quickly they—we—forget the great debt still owed to God’s covenant people.
Beloved, President Trump’s declaration of Jerusalem as the capital of the sovereign nation of Israel stands as an unrelenting barrier against globalist claims in this hour. Further, it stands as a torch of justice for the nations to remember their own legacy of depravity, which led to the rebirth of this miracle nation in the first place. Instead of seeking to delegitimize God’s covenant people and His covenant land, we really should be regaining the resolve, “NEVER AGAIN.” Instead the tide of hatred towards the Jews increases daily. And the nations gather today to again defraud God’s covenant land.
“For Zion’s sake I will not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until her righteousness shines as brightness, and her salvation as a lamp that burns” (Isaiah 62:1).
Today especially, please shine for Zion’s sake.
