  • Netanyahu readies for showdown with Abbas at UN

    Netanyahu holds meetings with Clinton, other heads of state, as Israeli diplomats work to sway international opinion ahead of Security Council hearing on Palestinian statehood.

    NEW YORK – Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu spent Thursday in New York behind closed doors preparing his much-touted public verbal duel with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas at the United Nations General Assembly on Friday morning.

    During what is expected to be a dramatic showdown, Abbas will likely make an emotional bid to the represented nations, asking that they recognize Palestinian statehood, irrespective of any peace process with Israel. Netanyahu will then state Israel’s case to the Assembly.

    “You will hear a forceful enunciation of Israel’s narrative, and its desire for peace with the Palestinians and its Arab neighbors,” an Israeli official said.

    Netanyahu’s message would be one that a majority of Israelis would be able to stand behind, the official said.

        I'm really quite excited to see what goes down. And also secretly wondering if a certain satellite will go down.

              I can't find any particular schedule of speakers through UN channels online, only that there will be general debate all day tomorrow. They do have this link for webcasting, though. I'm sure word will get out as the day progresses.

                      Sri Lanka is speaking right now. This is the one time I'm thankful that the UN is spewing it's garbage online for all the world to see. Anyone else think it's interesting that this is the sixty-sixth session? I'm praying for God's hand in this matter that His perfect Will be done. I don't even have words right now to express how much I want to see Jesus soon!

                      readynwaiting is right too, this address is the one to go to watch the speeches http://www.unmultimedia.org/tv/webcast/index.html

                          There are 4 more speakers before Abbas takes his turn. I think they speak for about ten mins each so it should be less than an hour from now.

                            Nambia is up right now, all of them seem to be siding and praising the palestinians and painting the Israelites as the oppressors. Talk about a lie spread 'round the world. 2 more speakers until abbas

                              Heavenly Father, I come before You in awe of You as I watch Your Word unfolding right before my eyes, and I bow down to You in solemn worship as Sovereign Creator. I thank You for who You are, that You cannot lie, that Your Word is true and trustworthy. Lord, I ask You to protect Mr Netanyahu, Lord and Your people, Israel, as Mr. Netanyahu will come before the body that will divide Your land, just as You said in Joel, and pray that those who love Israel stand strong with them. We know that the Gospel has been shared with him and that it is prophetic that most eyes in Israel are veiled, but Your Word does not return to You void, and I pray for fullness in Your Word. Lord, I ask You to send water, sun and fertilizer on Your seed planted in Mr Netanyahu and those Jews who have heard the Gospel that they might believe. I pray for all Israel, for every man, woman and child who is part of Your chosen and special people, Your precious possession as we can see the Time of Jacob's Trouble on the horizon, for their protection and salvation. I pray for eyes to be opened to Yeshua as their Messiah and for salvation to come to many--this is Your heart and nothing is more important to us or You than the eternal destiny of our souls. Lord, thank You for Your patient and merciful nature. You are full of grace and compassion for Your creation. Thank You for Your Son Jesus and His shed blood on the cross. In His name, I pray to you. Amen.


                              My friends, on Wed nights, we have been working our way through 1 Chronicles. This week in chapter 21, we covered the purchase of Mt Moriah for the Temple by David and the receipt of sale is in v 24. Thought I would share the chapter here for the good pleasure of the Lord and anyone who reads it. Our pastor also pointed out to us that Golgotha is the highest point of Mt. Moriah, which He reserved for His Son.

                              The Census of Israel and Judah
                              1 Now Satan stood up against Israel, and moved David to number Israel. 2 So David said to Joab and to the leaders of the people, “Go, number Israel from Beersheba to Dan, and bring the number of them to me that I may know it.”
                              3 And Joab answered, “May the LORD make His people a hundred times more than they are. But, my lord the king, are they not all my lord’s servants? Why then does my lord require this thing? Why should he be a cause of guilt in Israel?”
                              4 Nevertheless the king’s word prevailed against Joab. Therefore Joab departed and went throughout all Israel and came to Jerusalem. 5 Then Joab gave the sum of the number of the people to David. All Israel had one million one hundred thousand men who drew the sword, and Judah had four hundred and seventy thousand men who drew the sword. 6 But he did not count Levi and Benjamin among them, for the king’s word was abominable to Joab.
                              7 And God was displeased with this thing; therefore He struck Israel. 8 So David said to God, “I have sinned greatly, because I have done this thing; but now, I pray, take away the iniquity of Your servant, for I have done very foolishly.”
                              9 Then the LORD spoke to Gad, David’s seer, saying, 10 “Go and tell David, saying, ‘Thus says the LORD: “I offer you three things; choose one of them for yourself, that I may do it to you.”’”
                              11 So Gad came to David and said to him, “Thus says the LORD: ‘Choose for yourself, 12 either three[a] years of famine, or three months to be defeated by your foes with the sword of your enemies overtaking you, or else for three days the sword of the LORD—the plague in the land, with the angel[b] of the LORD destroying throughout all the territory of Israel.’ Now consider what answer I should take back to Him who sent me.”
                              13 And David said to Gad, “I am in great distress. Please let me fall into the hand of the LORD, for His mercies are very great; but do not let me fall into the hand of man.”
                              14 So the LORD sent a plague upon Israel, and seventy thousand men of Israel fell. 15 And God sent an angel to Jerusalem to destroy it. As he[c] was destroying, the LORD looked and relented of the disaster, and said to the angel who was destroying, “It is enough; now restrain your[d] hand.” And the angel of the LORD stood by the threshing floor of Ornan[e] the Jebusite.
                              16 Then David lifted his eyes and saw the angel of the LORD standing between earth and heaven, having in his hand a drawn sword stretched out over Jerusalem. So David and the elders, clothed in sackcloth, fell on their faces. 17 And David said to God, “Was it not I who commanded the people to be numbered? I am the one who has sinned and done evil indeed; but these sheep, what have they done? Let Your hand, I pray, O LORD my God, be against me and my father’s house, but not against Your people that they should be plagued.”
                              18 Therefore, the angel of the LORD commanded Gad to say to David that David should go and erect an altar to the LORD on the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite. 19 So David went up at the word of Gad, which he had spoken in the name of the LORD. 20 Now Ornan turned and saw the angel; and his four sons who were with him hid themselves, but Ornan continued threshing wheat. 21 So David came to Ornan, and Ornan looked and saw David. And he went out from the threshing floor, and bowed before David with his face to the ground. 22 Then David said to Ornan, “Grant me the place of this threshing floor, that I may build an altar on it to the LORD. You shall grant it to me at the full price, that the plague may be withdrawn from the people.”
                              23 But Ornan said to David, “Take it to yourself, and let my lord the king do what is good in his eyes. Look, I also give you the oxen for burnt offerings, the threshing implements for wood, and the wheat for the grain offering; I give it all.”
                              24 Then King David said to Ornan, “No, but I will surely buy it for the full price, for I will not take what is yours for the LORD, nor offer burnt offerings with that which costs me nothing.” 25 So David gave Ornan six hundred shekels of gold by weight for the place. 26 And David built there an altar to the LORD, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings, and called on the LORD; and He answered him from heaven by fire on the altar of burnt offering.
                              27 So the LORD commanded the angel, and he returned his sword to its sheath.
                              28 At that time, when David saw that the LORD had answered him on the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite, he sacrificed there. 29 For the tabernacle of the LORD and the altar of the burnt offering, which Moses had made in the wilderness, were at that time at the high place in Gibeon. 30 But David could not go before it to inquire of God, for he was afraid of the sword of the angel of the LORD.
