In a symbolic move by the President of the PA, Mahmoud Abbas, petitioned the UN General Assembly for an upgrade in status for the Palestinian people on November 29th, the same date in 1947 when the UN approved the resolution that allowed the Jewish people to have their own modern-day state of Israel.
Less than a year later, the state of Israel was a reality with about 500000 Jews from around the world forming the Jewish state and once again being a nation among all the nations of the world.
In an effort to form a Palestinian state in what is a part of Israel and with a portion of the city of Jerusalem as its capital city, PA President Abbas has petitioned the UN General Assembly to approve their upgrade to a state status which will only intensify the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
The Palestinian petition at the UN to give the PA a state status at the General Assembly is a precursor to the fulfillment of Bible prophecy.
The PA led by Mahmoud Abbas has for years claimed that the Israeli people had stolen their state and replaced it with a Jewish state. The Palestinian petition at the UN General Assembly for state status among this international governmental organization is an admission that there never was a Palestinian state as history has recorded. Palestine is not a real state since it has no defined borders and is without a legitimate government in place.
The ancient Jewish prophet Malachi wrote 2500 years ago of how the Palestinian people, the Edomites of biblical time, those who were descendants of Esau, would return to the land that God has given the Jewish people through Jacob, Genesis 37:1 and that these Palestinians would endeavor to rebuild. Malachi reveals that God would call the Palestinian borders the borders of wickedness, Malachi 1:4. In that same verse, God said He will have indignation against the Palestinian people forever. Ezekiel 35:5, 10 foretell of the judgment on the Palestinian people because they kill the Jews and endeavor to take their land. Obadiah says that God will destroy the Palestinians as if they have never been.
The Palestinian petition at the UN is indeed setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
