UN Resolution on Palestine: Prophecy Fulfilled

Ladies and gentlemen, the United States took a profound move yesterday in the Security Council of the United Nations. The United States proposed a resolution that would grant a state of Palestine and would take East Jerusalem away from Jerusalem and give it to the Palestinians.This has profound significance prophetically.

I was simply overjoyed on June 5, 1967 when I heard that war had broken out to
reclaim Jerusalem for Israel. That was a fulfillment of the prophecy of Jesus Christ. I want to show you what that prophecy was. The world had waited for a long time for it to be fulfilled.

Jesus said these words in the book of Luke:

...and they will fall by the edge of the sword, and will be led captive into all the nations; and Jerusalem will be trampled under foot by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled." (Luke 21:24 NASB)

What does trampled under the foot of the Gentiles mean? From 506 BC under Nebuchadnezzar and through the time of Alexander the Great and the Romans and later the British and the Ottoman Turks, Jerusalem was under the control of so-called Gentile powers.

But in 1967, during the six-day war, the old city of Jerusalem, the city where Jesus walked and the Temple Mount stood and the citadel of David stood, that city was delivered into the hands of Israel. And it was a fulfillment of Bible prophecy that had been awaiting fulfillment for 2,500 years. It started a countdown, 40 years in a sense of Gentile power in decline.

And now, the United Nations yesterday said we don't believe the Word of God. We will reverse it, and the United States led the way to say we want to take East Jerusalem back from the Jewish nation in defiance of the words of Jesus Christ, and we want to give it to none other than the Palestinian Authority and Yasar Arafat who is a sworn enemy of Israel who has declared he wants to destroy it.

The next Scripture that is important is found in the book of the prophet Zechariah:

For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city will be captured, the houses plundered, the women ravished and half of the city exiled, but the rest of the people will not be cut off from the city.

Then the LORD will go forth and fight against those nations, as when He fights on a day of battle.

In that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which is in front of Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives will be split in its middle from east to west by a very large valley, so that half of the mountain will move toward the north and the other half toward the south. (Zechariah 14:2-4 NASB)

Now, that prophecy in Zechariah has not yet totally been fulfilled, but this is a
precursor of it because the United Nations represents all of the nations of the earth and they have now come against Jerusalem.

And the Israeli ambassador said isn't this wonderful, they are not condemning us, just taking our land from us.

Here is the West Bank. When this whole territory is taken away and given to Yasar Arafat along with the Gaza strip, they will actually be in a position to do terrible damage to Jerusalem and Tel-Aviv and the state of Israel will be compromised territorially and militarily on into the future. And the United States of America led the way to this "peaceful" solution.

I recommend very strongly that those in America begin to pray.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
—Philippians 4:13
