Second U.N. resolution to deny Jewish ties to Jerusalem!

A prophecy: The word of the Lord concerning Israel.

“The Lord, who stretches out the heavens, who lays the foundation of the earth, and who forms the human spirit within a person, declares: 2 ‘I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem. On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves…. I will keep a watchful eye over Judah, but I will blind all the horses of the nations. Then the clans of Judah will say in their hearts, “The people of Jerusalem are strong, because the Lord Almighty is their God.”’” (Zechariah 12:1-5, NIV)

UNESCO Adopts Second Resolution Denying Jewish Ties To Jerusalem

The United Nations Educational, Cultural and Scientific Organization’s (UNESCO) World Heritage Committee adopted a controversial resolution Wednesday that ignores Jewish and Christian ties to the Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem.

 

Meeting in Paris, the resolution titled “Old City of Jerusalem and its Walls” passed with 10 countries voting in favor, two opposing and eight abstaining. Only eight votes were needed to pass the resolution.

 

The resolution criticizes Israel’s actions around the Temple Mount, which it refers to solely by its Muslim names “Al-Aqsa Mosque/Al-Haram Al-Sharif,” and defines it only as “a Muslim holy site of worship.”

 

The Temple Mount is the holiest site in Judaism as the place of the First and Second Jewish Temples. The Second Temple also plays a significant role in Christianity and is mentioned in the New Testament.

 

The World Heritage Committee’s decision comes less than two weeks after the body’s 56-member Executive Committee passed a similar resolution also ignoring Jewish and Christian ties to the Temple Mount.

 

That measure was only adopted by a plurality (24 votes) and not a majority, as the largest number of countries (26) abstained from the vote after intense lobbying by Israel.

 

Later, Brazil and Mexico voiced regret over their “yes” vote and Italy, which abstained, also said it should have voted “no.”

 

Israel’s Ambassador to UNESCO Carmel Shama-Hacohen called the resolution “absurd.”

 

This is yet another absurd resolution against the state of Israel, the Jewish people and historical truth,” he said.

 

In a show of defiance, Shama-Hacohen threw a copy of the resolution in the trash.

 

“UNESCO’s vote on Jerusalem is a piece of rubbish, rightly dumped in the garbage can by our Ambassador!! Long live Jewish Jerusalem!!!” Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon wrote on Twitter.

——————————

Israel is being betrayed by nations around the world, just as the prophet Zechariah foretold. Notice that Brazil, Mexico and Italy “voiced their regret.” What does that mean for Christians? It’s a reminder that we must remain strong, without regret!
