Upon awaking this morning I was immediately grabbed by the deep significance of the timing over Monday-Tuesday, 11-12th Nov, of two publications reported on this blog:
- Veronika West’s posting of a vision and word of about the inter-related destinies of the United Kingdom, the United States of America and of Israel.
- The European Court of Justice’s decision that all member states of the EU are now required by law to label goods of Israeli origin coming from the West Bank.
That is, the day before the ECJ publishes it’s anti-Israel declaration, attracting Genesis 12:3 penalty against Europe, Veronika publishes that mighty vision for the three nations that will receive the holy blessing promised in Gen 12:3.
I believe only the Living Lord God could have arranged such synchronicity between an unholy legislative earthly event and an exceptional Holy Spirit sign!
MOREOVER, Veronika introduced the vision by saying,
“I have sat on this Vision for just under a week as it has challenged much of my own understanding of end-time theology concerning these Nations but dare I say I felt the Spirit of God say, “OBEDIENCE IS ALL I REQUIRE OF YOU”, hence why I am posting this word/vision at this time, as I believe it is a ‘NOW’ WORD.” (Emphases added)
One of my readers asked me what’s Veronika’s ‘understanding’. I replied that he check with her but he found on her Facebook thread someone had already done so, to which she replies (as of my own mind too – again underlining is mine),
“In a nutshell my friend it’s a TIMING THING CONCERNING ENDTIME EVENTS”.
On the 7th day (18th Nov), which Caroline Glick reckons “will long be remembered as a turning point in Middle East history”, the US Secretary of State issues a statement to the press on a major about-face in the American government’s policy on Israel’s settlements in the West Bank.
He thereby fully refutes and rebutts the legitimacy of not only the EU’s anti-Israel stance but also that of President Obama’s anti-Israel obsession!
In his Remarks To The Press Secretary Mike Pompeo covers many areas of foreign affairs, including Iran and Iraq, but this is the vital part of historic moment:
“Turning now to Israel, the Trump administration is reversing the Obama administration’s approach towards Israeli settlements.
“U.S. public statements on settlement activities in the West Bank have been inconsistent over decades. In 1978, the Carter administration categorically concluded that Israel’s establishment of civilian settlements was inconsistent with international law. However, in 1981, President Reagan disagreed with that conclusion and stated that he didn’t believe that the settlements were inherently illegal.
“Subsequent administrations recognized that unrestrained settlement activity could be an obstacle to peace, but they wisely and prudently recognized that dwelling on legal positions didn’t advance peace. However, in December 2016, at the very end of the previous administration, Secretary Kerry changed decades of this careful, bipartisan approach by publicly reaffirming the supposed illegality of settlements.
“After carefully studying all sides of the legal debate, this administration agrees with President Reagan. The establishment of Israeli civilian settlements in the West Bank is not per se inconsistent with international law.
“I want to emphasize several important considerations.:
“First, look, we recognize that – as Israeli courts have – the legal conclusions relating to individual settlements must depend on an assessment of specific facts and circumstances on the ground. Therefore, the United States Government is expressing no view on the legal status of any individual settlement.
“The Israeli legal system affords an opportunity to challenge settlement activity and assess humanitarian considerations connected to it. Israeli courts have confirmed the legality of certain settlement activities and has concluded that others cannot be legally sustained.
“Second, we are not addressing or prejudging the ultimate status of the West Bank. This is for the Israelis and the Palestinians to negotiate. International law does not compel a particular outcome, nor create any legal obstacle to a negotiated resolution.
“Third, the conclusion that we will no longer recognize Israeli settlements as per se inconsistent with international law is based on the unique facts, history, and circumstances presented by the establishment of civilian settlements in the West Bank. Our decision today does not prejudice or decide legal conclusions regarding situations in any other parts of the world.
“And finally – finally – calling the establishment of civilian settlements inconsistent with international law hasn’t worked. It hasn’t advanced the cause of peace.
“The hard truth is there will never be a judicial resolution to the conflict, and arguments about who is right and wrong as a matter of international law will not bring peace. This is a complex political problem that can only be solved by negotiations between the Israelis and the Palestinians.
“The United States remains deeply committed to helping facilitate peace, and I will do everything I can to help this cause. The United States encourages the Israelis and the Palestinians to resolve the status of Israeli settlements in the West Bank in any final status negotiations.
“And further, we encourage both sides to find a solution that promotes, protects the security and welfare of Palestinians and Israelis alike.”
This exceptional change of policy is most noteworthy in view of the golden book-ends of ‘Righteousness’ and ‘Justice’ upholding those Books of Destiny, as seen by Veronika.
Caroline Glick’s Observations
‘Pompeo made two revolutionary assertions in his statement. First, he said that “after carefully studying all sides of the legal debate,” like the Reagan administration before it, the Trump administration has concluded, “The establishment of Israeli civilian settlements in the West Bank is not per se inconsistent with international law.”
‘Second, Pompeo noted, the near ubiquitousness of the false assertion that settlements are illegal has not advanced the prospects for peace. To the contrary, it has harmed the chances of getting to peace….
‘In his words, the administration’s determination “is based on the unique facts, history, and circumstances presented by the establishment of civilian settlements in the West Bank.”
‘That is, it is based on the historic ties of the Jewish people to Judea and Samaria. These ties lay at the heart of Jewish history and religion.
‘Finally, Pompeo said that the legal status of the settlements is itself irrelevant to prospects for peace. As he put it, “There will never be a judicial resolution to the conflict, and arguments about who is right and who is wrong as a matter of international law will not bring peace. This is a complex political problem that can only be solved by negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians.”
‘Pompeo’s statement, and indeed the Trump administration’s decision to publish its position now represents a complete rebuke of the European Union. The EU has made its false determination that Israeli settlements in Judea and Samaria are illegal the basis for its hostile, discriminatory economic and political policies towards Israel. The European Court of Justice’s verdict last week which requires EU member states to place distinct labels on Jewish-made exports from Judea, Samaria, united Jerusalem and the Golan Heights is self-evidently a bid to use a deliberate misinterpretation of international law to implement an anti-Semitic policy…’
