Prime Minister Netanyahu confirmed that Israel intends to move forward with the creation of artificial islands off Israel’s coast, a project he first attempted in 1996 during his first term as prime minister.

The creation of artificial islands will assist Israel in dealing with issues of overcrowding that is expected to become a significant obstacle for Israel mid-century. The artificial islands will allow Israel to clear land for more construction projects, as well as for moving infrastructure facilities, such as desalination and power plants…. more


Stage Being Set For Jerusalem

God is preparing for His Son’s return and the one statement made by one man (President Trump) has brought the world closer to the fulfillment of Biblical Prophecy. God is warning and Christ is coming. President Trump became president through the sovereignty of God and he has a very specific purpose one of them being Israel and Jerusalem.

Many countries do not agree with what Trump is about to do. Turkey made a statement that said “calling Jerusalem Israel capital will draw Muslim anger. [3]”

They gone on to say “This can go as far as severing Turkey’s ties with Israel. I am warning the United States not to take such a step which will deepen the problems in the region,” Cavusoglu said. “We have to warn the United States that such a decision will be against the U.N. resolutions and international law and international agreements.

Israel Officially Withdraws From UNESCO, Director-General ‘Regrets’ The Decision’

JOL: Israel officially notified UNESCO of its withdrawal from the organization on Friday, which will take effect on December 31, 2018. It now joins the US, which announced its withdrawal in October, citing anti-Israel bias and need for reform in the organization.

UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay said that Israel has formally informed her of its withdrawal. “I regret this deeply,” Azoulay said on Friday. “It is my conviction that it is inside UNESCO and not outside it that states can best seek to overcome differences in the organization’s fields of competence.”

Last week, Israel’s envoy to UNESCO Carmel Shama spoke of the decision to leave the organization. “UNESCO broke all records of hypocrisy, incitement and lies against Israel and the Jewish people, Israel and the Jewish nation…should be the first to donate to this organization and the last to leave. However, in the ‘Theater of the Absurd’ that is UNESCO, sane countries have nothing to find.” more …

Opinion by BIBLE PROPHECY TRACKER: That the UNESCO head regrets Israel’s decision to leave would be laughable if it were not tragic.

United Nations Educational Scientific Cultural Organization is a non-governmental group in the service of international educational development history founded in 1921. UNESCO became interconnected with Israeli bias following World War II.

Fast Forward to the Barack Obama presidency:

On October 31, 2011 UNESCO voted to admit Palestine into the organization as its newest member. The United States Congress promptly responded by cutting off funding.

On September 30, 2016, President Obama spoke at the funeral of former Prime Minister Shimon Peres. A transcript released from the White House listed the location of the speech as:

Jerusalem Israel

Hours later a corrected transcript from the White House showed the location as:

Jerusalem Israel

A carefully choreographed, series of UNESCO votes followed designed to erase any Jewish connection to the Temple Mount:

  • October 13, 2016 UNESCO votes that there is no connection between the Temple Mount and Jerusalem
  • October 26, 2016 UNESCO adopts a second resolution denying Jewish connection to the Temple Mount

Obama remained silent.

July 7, 2017 UNESCO declared on a second vote that the ancient and hotly contested core of Hebron the burial place of Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Rebekah, Jacob and Leah, has no connection to Judaism.

But this time a new US president was in charge and on October 12, 2017 the United States announced that it is withdrawing from UNESCO citing financial considerations, the need for reform and the organization’s “continuing anti-Israel bias”.

Both Judaism and Islam claim Abraham as their patriarch. The land that God granted to Abraham and his descendants after him (Genesis 17:7-8), however, was meant for Isaac and Jacob.

Ishmael and Esau were excluded from the deed.

UNESCO, Who are they?
Have you ever heard of UNESCO? Well this all got started when we began to read articles on how UNESCO fails to acknowledge Jewish ties to the Temple Mount. We wanted to know where they got the power to disconnect Jerusalem and the Temple Mount from Jewish cultural history….

Tenth of Tevet: The Seeds of Messiah Planted in the UN Jerusalem Vote

The Tenth of Tevet, a fast day that began Thursday morning, commemorates the beginning of the Greek siege of Jerusalem, an event one rabbi sees mirrored in the hateful United Nations vote last week that attempted to isolate Jerusalem from the world. In the spirit of one of the most venerated sages in Jewish history, this rabbi sees the UN vote as proof that the Third Temple will rise again.

On the tenth of Tevet in the year 3336 (425 BCE), the armies of the Babylonian Emperor Nebuchadnezzar laid siege to Jerusalem. This began the three-year process that led to the destruction of Solomon’s Temple and the Babylonian Exile lasting 70 years. To commemorate the day, Jews observe a day of fasting, mourning, and repentance. The fast begins at sunrise and ends at sunset.

Israel considers launching crypto-shekel to replace cash

For several months the Bank of Israel has been considering issuing a state-sponsored virtual currency, reports the Jerusalem Post. The digital shekel will be identical in value to the traditional shekel.

According to an unnamed Israeli finance official, the digital shekel will record every transaction by mobile phone. It will allow the Israeli government to reduce the amount of cash in circulation to fight tax evasion and money laundering. The so-called black economy in Israel accounts for 22 percent of the country’s GDP, statistics showed.

The digital shekel will be exactly like cash, but instead of coins in a wallet, there will be codes in a cellphone. Transactions with the cryptocurrency will be made immediately, unlike with a bank transfer or check, which takes a few days to clear… more

RUSSELS/CAIRO (Reuters) – Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took his case to Europe to ask allies to join the United States in recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, but met a firm rebuff from EU foreign ministers who saw the move as a blow against the peace process.

No matter how many times I read other countries believing it is their job to control Israel and Jerusalem, it still boggles the mind. It is like the world said, yes, Jews may have land and become a nation. We will all pretend Israel is a sovereign nation but we are going to keep control of your every move. Still the only voice that matters is ignored;

Psalm 132:13 NASB For the Lord has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His habitation. 14 “This is My resting place forever; Here I will dwell, for I have desired it.

Psalm 87:1 NASB His foundation is in the holy mountains. 2 The Lord loves the gates of Zion
More than all the other dwelling places of Jacob. 3 Glorious things are spoken of you,
O city of God.

Yahweh, the God of Israel owns Jerusalem and He will dwell there forever.
