On October 6th, New York Times, has called on the United Nations Security Council to set the parameters for a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians.
“The most plausible pressure would come from Mr. Obama’s leading the Security Council to put its authority behind a resolution to support a two-state solution”
They go on further to say…
“The best idea under discussion now would be to have the United Nations Security Council, in an official resolution, lay down guidelines for a peace agreement covering such issues as Israel’s security, the future of Jerusalem, the fate of Palestinian refugees and borders for both states,”
This article comes after seeing settlements grow over in Israel. Israel promised to not build more settlements, but many say that they are only expanding to meet the growing needs of existing settlements.
Obama doesn’t have a lot of time left in office, and if we were to see some sort of divide, we may see it before his term is up and we have the New York times fueling the fire.
The bible talks about being cursed when we side against Israel. Can we take God’s word literately? I say yes.
There are so many websites and groups who go out of their way to slander Israel. Behind these websites are people, individuals with this hatred.
Even if you are a Christian, your words and actions are accountable. There are many Christians who condemn Israel, and you would be surprised how many influential pastors out there siding against Israel.
Curses can come in many forms. When a persons life is cursed, it may seem as though they are always battling an up hill stream. Maybe it is health issues, or strife in the home, or lack of promotions in their workplace, or money issues. What ever it is, nothing seems to come easy for them.
The bible talks about blessings when keeping the commandments :
Deuteronomy 28 – Blessings for Obedience –28 If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations on earth.
Notice the Yahweh says He will curse those who curse Israel.
Take note of this really interesting find by my friend Joanie.
Shimon Peres, the former prime minister of Israel, died at the age of 93 after suffering a stroke. Note that he died at the age of 93, and he was also involved in the 1993 peace agreement.
His role in negotiating the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords with then-Israeli Prime Minster Yitzak Rabin and Yasser Arafat, may have been the very reason he died.
The Oslo Accords were a set of agreements between the government of Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization which were the start of a peace process, aimed at achieving a peace-treaty based on the United Nations Security Council Resolution 242 and 338, and to fulfill the “right of the Palestinian people to self-determination.”
There are no coincidence with these dates.
I would encourage anyone who has personally cursed Israel to repent, because Yahweh’s ways are not our ways, and what He says in His word is honored.
He takes the Land that is HIS seriously. A Christian who knows their Messiah Yeshua, can face discipline, even though they are saved. The idea of discipline and curses is one issue that the church body needs to look at closer.
Although THEY are “cursing” Israel, YOU can still “bless” her. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

Thus says the LORD, who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him: “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding nations, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all nations; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.
The New York Times has demanded US President Barack Obama use his last months in office to hit Israel hard diplomatically.
Apparently, this is in response to the fact that the Israeli government “approved the construction of a new Jewish settlement in the West Bank,” which is simply “another step in the steady march under Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to build on land needed to create a Palestinian state.”
Last week, the Israeli government approved a plan allowing Amona residents to move to the neighboring town of Shilo, where they would be housed in a new neighborhood on government land planned specially for them.
Shilo is a town in in the Biblical “hills of Ephraim,” and is now under the jurisdiction of the Binyamin Regional Council.

Barack Obama has told Israel it cannot permanently occupy and settle on Palestinian land in a speech to the United Nations.
The US president said both sides would benefit if Israel recognised it cannot permanently occupy the land and if Palestinians rejected incitement and recognised Israel’s legitimacy. Read more
Just how far out of the American political mainstream is the anti-Israel editorial position of the New York Times?
The latest outrage from the newspaper is an unsigned staff editorial criticizing as excessive the 10-year, $38 billion aid agreement signed last week between Israel and the United States. That deal was approved by President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry, and praised by Hillary Clinton. Congressional Republicans, if anything, want to make it bigger. read more
