Keep Jerusalem United
Please pray for the nations as they enter “the Valley of Decision” at the UN from 25th September-1st October
We call upon all believers to fast and pray for Israel from Rosh Hashanah (evening of 16th September) to Yom Kippur (26th September)
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.
At the same time Israel is facing both the threat of a chemical weapons attack from Syria and a nuclear Iran. At the UN General Assembly all these threats will converge as the nations will be faced with the choice to either stand up for Israel or join her enemies.
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.
This period coincides with the Jewish High Holidays of Rosh Hashanah (September 16th) and Yom Kippur (September 26th). Rosh Hashanah marks a day of judgment whereas Yom Kippur is the holiest day of the year for the Jews. The Israeli Prime Minister will deliver his most important speech ever in the UN the day after Yom Kippur!
