Sixty-five years to the date after the UN voted the petition of mandatory Palestine, a move the Jews accepted and the Palestinians rejected, the UN voted overwhelmingly to grant the Palestinian delegation the upgraded status of non-member observer state.
Prime Minister Netanyahu responded to the UN vote saying it was illegal since there was not a state of Palestine that even qualifies to be a state with defined borders and a legitimate government of all the people and that the UN vote changes nothing on the ground in Israel except the conflict.

The UN vote to grant the Palestinians state status in an historic vote is simply setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
With the non-aligned member states of the UN and the EU member states, the UN General Assembly overwhelmingly voted the Palestinian delegation an upgrade status at the UN that gives the Palestinians a claim to statehood. PA PM Mahmoud Abbas when addressing the UN General Assembly said he was there to allow the UN to issue a birth certificate for the state of Palestine. By making that statement, Abbas admitted there never has been a Palestinian state. This UN vote has only enhanced the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and has basically negated any peace process that might have brought resolution to this conflict.
Twenty-five hundred years ago, a number of ancient Jewish prophets foretold of a time in history when this type of scenario would be in place in our world. In fact, this scenario has never been just as it is today which is evidence we are quickly approaching the time that the prophets we're talking about. Malachi revealed that the Palestinian people, the descendants of Esau would try to rebuild their nation, Malachi 1:3. In that same passage, Malachi reports that the Lord will call their borders the borders of wickedness. Ezekiel said that God will judge the Palestinians because they kill the Jews and take their land, Ezekiel 35:5, 10. Actually, the resolution of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict will only come when the Messiah returns to the earth, Obadiah 18.
The UN vote did indeed set the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
