Mercy for our nation
Today the leadership of New Zealand has crossed a line. Israel and the US under a Donald Trump administration may take no notice of the evil UN resolution sponsored by New Zealand and passed this morning (NZ time), attempting to outlaw Israel’s settlement of parts of the Biblical heartland of Judea and Samaria – part of the very land given to the Jewish people absolutely and for eternity by God Himself. But be sure, the Almighty God will take notice.
If this wasn’t enough to display our country’s intentions regarding Israel, our leadership also knew that this further step in the attempted destruction of Israel had to take place before 20 January when President Obama’s administration is removed and replaced by one that supports Israel.
Pray that the Lord will have mercy on our nation now that we have crossed this line. We could hope that our leaders are ignorant rather than determined to staunchly defy the living God. Only God knows, but He has made it absolutely clear in His Word how He sees those who “touch the apple of his eye” – that’s Israel. Zechariah 2:8-9 says: “For thus says the Lord of hosts; after the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye. For, behold, I will shake mine hand upon them, and they shall be a spoil to their servants: and ye shall know that the Lord of hosts hath sent me.”
In our earlier blogs we have referred to a number of Scriptures clearly warning about actions against God’s Land of Israel. I think that God’s Word in relation to Israel has been pointed out to our leaders on a number of occasions. So, I don’t think they are altogether ignorant.
Ask the Lord urgently for mercy on our nation.
