I felt the annointing when I read your message – I believe that God is trying to wake the nations but they are with deaf ears. That is why the Word said “let those with ears hear what God is saying” proving that the nations and people will be unable to hear – only those chosen by God to hear. Hence it is all the more important for us to keep our trust and faith in the Living God and pray for Jerusalem for that is where the King is going to return. The nations will wake up but it will be at such a time when they are thinking they are at peace and nothing to disturb them, that is when the King will arrive, with a Shout and with claps of thunger and the great day will arrive and people will be terrified, they have an opportunity to seek his face, however it is only we that are being prepared for this will have our eyes opened. We need to warn the people that these things are coming to pass because of the nations – people have turned their back on God and seeking their own ways – which lead to destruction.
The more I read of the Word and God the more secure I feel in him. Learning to live His way – brings peace to your soul and mind, knowing that God is in control and nothing can shake us when we place our trust into him.
We know that Isreal will be saved because God ordained it. – God does not want anyone to be lost – but there are those that have been earmaked already for destruction – just as there those that have been earmaked for salvation.
Trust God and keep His word ever before you.
I fully agree with what Judy and Tomas have written, and I pray that their next quest at the UN will bear some fruit, although I have my doubts. Even the nation of which I am an expatriate, is constantly barking at the heels of Israel, with one having the same first name as me leading the pack and thinking he is doing the work of our God YHVH. And the country is sliding into deeper poverty and anarchy, 20 years after ANC and communists taking over and hoping to do a better job than the previous government. Any thoughts on the new hurricane over Louisiana, 7 years to the day when the previous storm hit New Orleans! And Mr Gore will have something to say about “global warming”. I rather think it is another kind of warming. It is called getting hot under the collar, and I think our God is getting more and more angry as the nations abandon His Word and ban it in schools and court rooms.
Pray that you may not be found wanting in that fateful day that is coming, not too far off.
The European Coalition for Israel leaders will be meeting to pray in Jerusalem next week and then on September 22nd, a team of us will be going once again to New York for the General Assembly of the UN. It is expected that the Palestinians will once again make a unilateral bid for statehood. Please read this concise explanation of the situation by Tomas Sandell, to understand how this affects not only Israel, but also our own nations, and the extreme importance of your prayers at this time. Please feel free to forward this.
Thank you for your prayers

Keep Jerusalem United Please pray for the nations as they are entering “the Valley of Decision” at the UN from 25th September-1st October Facts. The United Nations will have its Annual Debate of the General Assembly from September 25 – October 1, when all 193 member states will gather in New York to be faced with a unilateral declaration of a Palestinian state. In the next few months your nation will have to decide if it will accept the creation of a new Islamic state in the Middle East with the Old City of Jerusalem (East Jerusalem) as its capital. Biblical context. The Bible speaks of a point in time when “all the nations” will gather against Jerusalem and when the Lord will intervene and judge the nations. (Joel 3:1-3) The judgment will come because they – the nations have divided up His land (Israel) and dispersed His people (The Jews). Furthermore, the New Testament (Matthew 25: 31-46) speaks of a coming judgment of the nations, based on how they have treated “these least of my brothers”. We are now entering a time when the world community is trying to divide Jerusalem and disperse those Jews who are living in the biblical heartland of Israel. The Choice. The nations will have a vote in the UN. Will they choose to become “Goat” or “Sheep” nations? Will they care for the Jewish people? Will they gather against Jerusalem or align themselves with God’s plans and purposes for world peace? We can read about this in Isaiah 2. This is a vision of world peace, which is universally accepted. The scripture is written on a monument right across from the UN in New York. This is the time when “Nation will not take up sword against nation nor will they train for war any more. “ This is the Peace of Jerusalem that we are praying for and that we are asking the nations to prepare for. It can, according to the text, only come about when the Lord God of Israel reigns in Jerusalem. We believe that “all nations” gathering against Israel could mean the international community as a whole or even the “United Nations”, but we do not believe that each and every nation will have to join. They have a choice. This is why Matthew 25:31-46 clearly speaks of a separation of Sheep and Goat nations. This is also why the place where the judgment happens is a “Valley of Decision.” The nations will have to make a decision. Where does your nation stand? We are not implying that “the final judgment” is imminent. It may or may not. What we are saying, is that it is a time for decisions, which according to Scripture, will have direct consequences for the nations. The Call. We are calling upon the worldwide body of Christ to pray for the peace of Jerusalem at a time when there international community would like to divide the city, but also for your own nation as your leaders may soon be entering “the Valley of Decision”, in other words a decisive vote about the future of Jerusalem in the United Nations. This is both a call to prayer and a call to action. Please help circulate our material on the rights of the Jewish people to Jerusalem and the consequences of dividing Jerusalem. We have produced a 15-minute film and a book where leading international scholars explain the legal foundation of Israel in great detail. Please visit www.givepeaceachance.info for more information or watch the film here on this website. – Please pray that there would be more time for the leaders of the nations to hear about the biblical, legal and historical rights of the Jewish people. Please pray for your own leaders – that they would clearly say no to dividing Jerusalem. For more information please visit www.keepjerusalemunited.org
