This week “All the nations of the earth” will be gathering at the United Nations, making decisions that will have potentially disastrous effects for Judah and Jerusalem. The purpose of those that are rising up against Israel is to divide the land God promised to Israel and the Jewish people as an everlasting possession, and to remove Jerusalem from its rightful place as the Capital of the nation of Israel.
These are days prophesied throughout the Bible, and they are fateful decisions being made.We pray with the Psalms:
“O God, do not remain silent; do not turn a deaf ear,
do not stand aloof, O God.
See how your enemies growl, how your foes rear their heads.
With cunning they conspire against your people; they plot against those you cherish. ‘Come,’ they say, ‘let us destroy them as a nation,
so that Israel’s name is remembered no more.’ With one mind they plot together; they form an alliance against you”— Psalm 83:1-5.
David could have called out to God with the words of this prayer this morning. Its words are a supplication that God would rise up and cut off a conspiracy being plotted against Israel. This scripture is prophetic of events happening today!
David asked the Lord not to remain silent…as Christians, we likewise cannot keep silent and we cannot hold our peace during this time of political attack on Israel!
We must take action:
- Pray for God’s protection over Israel. A good place to start is to pray Psalm 83 during this time.
- Pray for supernatural intervention to stop the plans of Arab League Nations to force the UN to recognize Palestine as a state at Israel’s expense.
- Pray for courage, wisdom and protection for Prime Minister Netanyahu as he addresses the UN on Friday.
- Pray for President Obama that he will have the courage to stand with Israel.
