Vengeance is Mine, says the LORD

Vengeance is Mine, says the LORD

Yes, stand and applaud, damnable delegates to the Security Council who last night achieved your long-held goal of prohibiting Israel from building homes for Jews in the Jews’ own land.

Soon you’ll be laughed to scorn.

Congratulate yourselves, wretched representatives of the governments of New Zealand, Spain, France, the United Kingdom and the United States – once Judeo-Christian nations that have taken an axe to the root of your very own tree.

Smile, cowards, who raced to pass your repulsive resolution while Israel rested on the Sabbath, after its prime minister sent you wishes for a “Merry Christmas,” and the rest of the world, attention on the holiday, barely noticed your perfidy.

You US Judas, deliberately withholding the shielding veto Heaven has granted you to raise over Israel. Samantha Power, transparently trying to disguise the duplicity of the deal by paying lip service to expressions of Obama’s ‘sincere commitment to peace’.

‘Friend’, you betrayed Israel with a kiss.

And as for the leaders of that upstart island of less than five million – they couldn’t bear to end their tenure on the Security Council without trying to “punch above their weight” and steer the course of another nation, a nation with millennia of history alongside which their’s is barely a child.

For shame, New Zealand. One hundred years ago your soldiers sacrificially helped the Jews get back their land. Today, trampling on the graves of your own dead, you have sought to take it away.

Assuredly you will fail. Assuredly you already have. When you leave the UNSC on December 31 and go back to taking care of your own land and your own security – be mindful of the earthquakes which threaten to take those from you.

Fools, and blind, you nations – all of you. Lying through your teeth, you sign onto the Goebbelsian lie in your resolution that calls Israel’s ancestral lands and ancient capital “occupied Palestinian territory, including east Jerusalem”.

There is no Palestinian territory. There never has been. You can call it that until you are blue in the face but it has never been – and it is not – Palestinian territory.

Weeks ago you let UNESCO cut the Jews off from their holiest site, the Temple Mount, the Mountain of the Lord.

You’re going to learn this soon. You will eventually get it: The Land belongs to the LORD God of Israel. Jerusalem is the City of David. The Temple Mount is the Mountain of the LORD – the throne room of the Great King.

Before this God, oh arrogant nations, you are less than a drop in the bucket.

The Lord Himself will judge between you and Israel, and the Lord will avenge Himself upon you. You shall not know blessing on your treachery of last night.

Soon we will see you held in derision.

Heaven will put you to shame.

Why do the nations rage,
And the people plot a vain thing?
The kings of the earth set themselves,
And the rulers take counsel together,
Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying,
“Let us break Their bonds in pieces
And cast away Their cords from us.”
He who sits in the heavens shall laugh;
The Lord shall hold them in derision.
Then He shall speak to them in His wrath,
And distress them in His deep displeasure:
“Yet I have set My King
On My holy hill of Zion.”
(Psalm 2:1-6)

    Het werk van God is niet te keren.
    Omdat Hij er over waakt.
    En Zijn Geest doorbreekt de grenzen die door mensen zijn gemaakt.

    Copy and pass. People need to stop talking. People need to know what GOD has to say in His WORD. The opinions of man need to bow to God’s rightly divided WORD. IF PEOPLE KNEW WHAT GOD HAS TO SAY ABOUT HIS LAND they will be able to make an biblically informed choice and hold a biblically sound position. FAITH COMES BY HEARING GOD’S WORD, NOT MAN’S opinions. We are to hold forth the Word of God.

    Genesis 24:7 The LORD God of heaven, which took me from my father’s house, and from the land of my kindred, and which spake unto me, and that SWARE unto me, saying, Unto thy seed will I give the land; he shall send his angel before thee, and thou shalt take a wife unto my son from thence.

    Acts 13:32 And we declare unto you glad tidings, how that THE PROMISE which was made unto the fathers,

    Acts 26:6 And now I stand and am judged for the hope of THE PROMISE made of God unto our fathers:

    Romans 15:8 Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm THE PROMISES made unto the fathers:

    Galatians 3:16 Now to Abraham and his seed were THE PROMISES made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.

    Galatians 3:17 And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make THE PROMISE of none effect.

    Galatians 3:18 For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of PROMISE: but God gave it to Abraham by PROMISE.

    Galatians 3:19 Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom THE PROMISE was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator.

    Hebrews 6:13 For when God made PROMISE to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he SWARE by himself,

    Great article Stan. As a citizen of New Zealand I hope you do not mind that I quoted some of your article in an email to our local Member of Parliament along with a request for information on how to renounce my New Zealand citizenship. Thankfully my citizenship is in heaven, however, I do tremble for this nation. I have lowered the New Zealand flag from our 30ft flagpole and hoisted a Jerusalem flag. Not much more to do now other than pray.

  • Cori December 27, 2016 at 10:20 /

    What a disgrace this resolution is to New Zealand, to America, and all the other countries who colluded to stab Israel in the back like this! Why can’t the world just let Israel exercise sovereignty in its own land??? Who gives us the right to interfere in Israel’s affairs??? So, did Murray McCully and John Key do the dirty and then step down and pat themselves on the back thinking they’d left a wonderful legacy? They left a legacy of SHAME, as did Obama! Thankfully God is greater than any rulers who occupy paper thrones!

  • Greg Marcar December 27, 2016 at 02:13 /

    I am an American, but ashamed to be affiliated with a country that turns its back on the apple of G-ds eye. Despicable is my final conclusion. I stand by Israel and may G-d forgive America for its insolence. All those participating in this atrocity has signed their own death warrant in my opinion. G-d will have the last word.

    Well said, Stan. When I read the article in the newspaper, I begged our Father to have mercy on our nation. My prayer is that our President-elect will be able to lead us back on the track of loving Israel. May the Christians who honor that Land rise up and intercede!

  • Steve December 26, 2016 at 12:16 /

    The sheer ignorant arrogance, puerility and sanctimonious virtue signalling of the New Zealand Government is beyond reproach – I am so fearful for the future of our nation and our children

  • Robert Lykens December 26, 2016 at 07:06 /

    I want Israel and Israelites to know that there are many Americans – if not most Americans – who view America’s abstention as a horrendous, abominable slap in the face of God. Although we love our country, the time is coming when we will have to choose to continue to give our allegiance to America or ally ourselves with Israel.
    So there may be no misunderstanding of where I stand, I declare that although I love America, I will not call myself a citizen of a country which seeks Israel’s hurt.
    I am not unsure or hesitant about this decision because my first priorities lie with the Jewish Jesus Christ, the Word of God, who stated in Genesis, regarding Israel:
    “And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”
    I believe this statment of God and it is part of my identity.
    “…as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

    When I first learned of the reintroduction of this bill, and the subsequent abstention of the US in the vote, I went from shock (for a short time), to anger (for a long period of time), and then, gradually, to reassurant peace. More calming than POTUS-elect Trump’s comments about things changing when he is in office….is knowing that God is in charge of all. He still hears our prayers, and He is true to His Word. We cannot undo what has been done. What we CAN do is interceed; making our displeasure known to our respective governmental representatives AND pray.

  • Frank Reale December 26, 2016 at 04:22 /

    Well spoken Stan. This resolution won’t be worth the paper it’s written on. Just part of the world’s tirade against Israel. But God holds the nations in derision. They will not thwart His plans, nor will they escape his wrath.

  • Jane December 26, 2016 at 00:35 /

    Awesome essay and well said!! Those who are anti God and anti Israel will rue the day they began to think an evil thought. Their knee will one day bow in honor to the Holy God of Israel….but for them, it will be too late. Their misery will last throughout eternity.

  • Elaine Coker December 25, 2016 at 23:35 /

    This act that Obama and the UN has done is for one reason. It is to destroy ISRAEL, and the Jewish people because JESUS CHRIST came through the lineage of David. The UN has to destroy “true” Christianity in order to get their “One World Government”. You see, if they can take the land of ISRAEL away from the Jewish people and give it to the Arabs, then the Jewish people will have no State, no homeland and nowhere to go. The World including most of he Churches in the US have already turned against ISRAEL, proving that we are at the very END and that JEHOVAH GOD is getting ready to return. The Scripture says that when JEHOVAH GOD returns that NO ONE will be for ISRAEL. The “true” Church, not the “Apostasy” Church will be gone already and once we Christians are gone, ISRAEL will for the first time be truly alone, EXCEPT for their MESSIAH.

    One of the saddest Prophecies in the Holy Word of GOD is ISAIAH 63.

    ISAIAH 63 Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in his apparel, travelling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save.2 Wherefore art thou red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat? 3 I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment. 4 For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come. 5 And I looked, and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was none to uphold: therefore mine own arm brought salvation unto me; and my fury, it upheld me. 6 And I will tread down the people in mine anger, and make them drunk in my fury, and I will bring down their strength to the earth.

    I still remember the first time I read the above Scripture. It brought tears to my eyes, to think that after what JEHOVAH GOD did for humans that they would turn on HIS Beloved ISRAEL, HIS Inheritance. Each time I read this Scripture, I have the same experience over and over again. Here we are at the END of this AGE and this Scripture is getting closer and closer to its “Fulfillment”.

    I Pray that JEHOVAH GOD/JESUS CHRIST returns in 2017. I Pray daily for this. I believe it will be soon, very soon.


  • Lynne Baker December 25, 2016 at 23:26 /

    How heartbreaking that people are suffering because of foolish, ungodly decisions of their leaders and ignorant falling into line with them. I pray that the believers of those nations will wake up to the potential destructions in their country, pray for forgiveness, pray for God to raise up leaders who will obey him! and speak up! We need to counteract this foolishness being committed by the UN and the goat leaders that follow.

    Thank you Stan, for speaking out the truth !

    For this is what the LORD Almighty says: “After the Glorious One has sent me against the nations that have plundered you–for whoever touches you touches the apple of his eye– Zech. 2:8

    His plan for Israel will be fulfilled !

In the past, he looked at the future of humanity and saw everything that will happen in advance. It look to me that the end of present stage is coming soon. Keep doing your beautifull job. We’ll pray for you.

  • Brian Gemmell December 25, 2016 at 18:14 /

    Although the actions of the UN made my blood boil I take great comfort in the Word of God which assures me that, without true repentance, “the wicked” are judged and punished. Almighty God does not rejoice in the death of any man but, from the sons of Korah to Annaias and Sapphira, we can see that His discipline never misses the mark. As you rightly say…” vengence is Mine”.
    We must never gloat over the fall of those who oppose Almighty God, His Will, His Works and His people but we can have total certainty that they who lay such a trap will fall into it themselves. This principle is seen in the Psalms many times…Ps 37: 14-15, Ps141:9-10 as examples.
    Let GOD arise and let His enemies be scattered
    Let those also who hate Him flee before Him.
    As smoke is driven away so drive them away.
    As wax melets before the fire,
    So let thewicked perishat the presence of GOD.

    The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof and Israel and Jerusalem are the apple of HIS eye. You are right, brothers and sisters in Christ, God will not be mocked. I hope and pray President Trump can somehow set this right for the sake of the US. This is a horrible calamity waiting to happen for all those who do not fear the Lord. I stand with Israel.

    I have always and also this time, shared your insights, Stan. This decision will now make it lawful in international law to damage, attack and seek to destroy those so called settlements. What is worse is that even the new Trump administration the may want to help Israel defend those settlements will be acting unlawfully under international law. The final war has begun. The time to bring in the Harvest is fast coming to an end. WAKE UP CHURCH OF CHRIST : He is coming back and will call all of us to account for what we did it gather the Harvest. The very name UNITED NATIONS is a misnomer!

    Zechariah 8:2-3 ‘This is what the Lord Almighty says: My love for Mt Zion is passionate & strong; I am consumed with passion for Jerusalem! And now the Lord says: I am returning to Mt Zion, and I will live in Jerusalem. Then Jerusalem will be called the Faithful City; the mountain of the Lord Almighty will be called the Holy Mountain.’ Tremble, all you who set your selves against the Lord of Heaven’s armies

    So the dragon has lashed out with his tail, one last historic slash by the deceiver Obama . Your true colours revealed now to even the blindest eye! God help President elect Trump to pull the USA back from destruction. New Zealand – SHAME ON YOU!!!!! John Keys, SHAME ON YOU!!! You are a disgrace to the Spirit of ANZAC. UK, WHat????????? So the sheep and goat nations are being divided. How very, very sad to see the USA and UK And NZ listed amongst the betrayers.

  • John R. Peacher December 25, 2016 at 03:53 /

    A sad day for America. Our new President will address the issue, I am confident. The parting shot of Kerry and Obama will not last.

    At this time of Hanukkah – as the Jewish people celebrate their victory over an evil nation, along comes a roll call of antichrist leaders/nations arrogantly asserting that the land is not for the Jewish people. Joel chapter 3, written more than 2500 years ago, is coming for you all. As the Pharisee Gamaliel warned his people – you will soon find yourself fighting against God. The Lion of the tribe of Judah is coming to avenge His people. May the Lord have mercy. Keep telling it exactly as it as Stan.

  • Graham Coffey December 25, 2016 at 03:22 /

    Thank you Stan….I can only hope that this treachery has strengthened Israel’s resolve. The time has arrived; (welland truly), for the Israeli Government to take total sovereign control of their homeland State. With best wishes.

  • Michael Riley December 25, 2016 at 02:33 /

    Stan, very well written and spot on.

  • Vonnie Fredlund December 25, 2016 at 02:25 /

    Well said, well said.

  • Peter Roberts December 25, 2016 at 02:24 /

    Stan, as usual you’re comment is strong, factual and extremely relevant. This UN vote yet another sign of the diminishing presence of Judeo-Christian influence in world affairs. Really, we should not be surprised at the vote – it reflects the current culture and mentality of world leaders. Methinks 2017 will be a most turbulent year.

  • Teshuvah December 25, 2016 at 01:57 /

    I am writing to everyone I know in NZ to prepare for an earthquake or other enormous calamity. I have said ever since John Kerry showed up in NZ on Nov. 11 that I suspected PM John Key or others were colluding with him against Israel. Now FM Michael McCully admits it! The gall. God will not be mocked!

    John Key has mysteriously quit since then. Did God give him a dream or a vision of the consequences of his actions? Or was there a major Cabinet dispute over the forthcoming UNSC vote? Bill English has risen to power now.

    “Murray McCully, said the decision should have been no surprise to Israel which knew Wellington’s position long before the UN vote. Israel has informed us of their decision to recall their ambassador to New Zealand for consultations,” McCully said in a statement. “We have been very open about our view that the [security council] should be doing more to support the Middle East peace process and the position we adopted today is totally in line with our long established policy on the Palestinian question.” —

    “McCully discussed a possible Security Council resolution with the outgoing US Secretary of State, John Kerry, during his visit to New Zealand last month. McCully then travelled to the Middle East to discuss it with others, including Netanyahu.” —

    On Nov. 14, two days after Key and McCully met with Kerry, the M7.8 earthquake hit Waiau and Kaikoura aimed North towards Wellington, the capitol, and aftershocks have been moving steadily North. Over “100,000 slips (landsides)” cut State Hwy 1 and the country in half.

    Zec 12:3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it ***shall be cut in pieces,*** though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.

    Zec 12:9 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.

    The M7.8 may have been just a warning shot. It is now time to take down the glass and mirrors and prepare for The Big One. It might not be an earthquake. It could be a volcano or something else. It might not be Wellington but will be somewhere with lots of homes because the law of sowing and reaping says in effect, if you take away homes in Israel, God will take away your homes. At least the Israeli Ambassador to NZ stationed in Wellington is safe. Israel recalled him.

    Such was the case when Stan Goodenough wrote The Fist of God detailing how George W. Bush engaged in efforts to remove Jews from Gaza and give it to Israel’s enemies. As the last Jew left, a storm formed called Hurricane Katrina and destroyed most of New Orleans.

    Fukushima’s tsunami was a judgment of God because Japan sided with the Palies against Israel. Japan’s Earthquake & Tsunami–the Hand of God? —

    The precedent for God’s judgment on NZ is this: On July 18, 2004 three days after former PM Helen Clark stood in the Bay of Plenty and broke off diplomatic relations with Israel re the “Mossad” passport issue, a breach occurred in the Rangitaiki River stopbank just upstream of Edgecumbe leading to the Bay of Plenty Flood in NZ which caused millions of dollars of damage. This was just one of her anti-Israel acts that caused judgment to fall on her and on NZ.

    Ge 17:7 And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee. 8 And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, ***for an everlasting possession;*** and I will be their God.

  • Dale/Doris Steele December 25, 2016 at 01:53 /

    Stan…a superb article with truth and passion!

  • Roy December 25, 2016 at 01:51 /

    The nations fail to learn from history. This is way of Moslem and other anti-Messiah take. I join with Stan,”Woe unto you —

  • Dale/Doris Steele December 25, 2016 at 01:50 /

    Stan..spoken with passion, facts, and prophetic truth. Jehovah God must surely be very near to
    the end of even His patience. Thank you for reminding all of us of one great fact…there is NO PALESTINE TERRITORY!

  • Tamara Lancastle December 25, 2016 at 01:34 /

    As a New Zealander I was horrified to read the news and what Stan has now said unfortunately is the truth. I do worry for NZ and have felt for a few years that we have more serious earthquakes to come even though others said there would be no more. I can only pray that Yahweh will have mercy if we as a nation repent but that would seem unlikely when I see how the road our nation is going down. Israel, from this kiwi, I am so sorry for what we have done, I am gutted!

  • mike hughes December 25, 2016 at 01:02 /

    Thankyou Stan. I am ashamed of my country this day…………

  • Dee December 25, 2016 at 00:50 /

    You sound as angry as I am. Obama and his hate. They, the nations, don’t know what they have set in motion but they will learn. The devil won this battle but as we know he loses the war. All True Christians still STAND WITH ISRAEL until the end. Shalom

  • Ron December 25, 2016 at 00:40 /

    Well said brother Stan. The Holy One of Israel is the only righteous judge and he will not be mocked by the foolishness of these nations. In the valley of judgement there with be a righteous retribution.

  • Ralf Koch December 25, 2016 at 00:40 /

    Hi Stan,
    it is a shame what is happening to Israel especially with the US.
    Because of some issues which happen to my children as apprentices in german companies I sometimes got so furious about them [the companies] that I would like to have them beaten up myself. But then I started to pray for those people in charge, on one hand forgiving them for my own sake on the other hand I remembered the Lords vengeance. So I pray in addition that he will hold them accountable for me to see and brings favour on my children since they have done nothing wrong. It is a relief to bless those people and be free as well as placing them in the Lords hands since he knows best what to do about it. And I can say Got is taking care of those things – God is good.

    It is hard to watch those things happening and the nations bringing themselves to ruin.
    Nobody is listening and nobody is learning about the past, that blessing Israel brings a blessing to your own nation as well as cursing the nation of Israel.

    Now, as it is written in the Bible God will save his people on the last day and as hard as it is to say about ones own nation, they will all go against Israel at the end.
    There will be no nation helping Israel since God and God alone will save the nation.
    He will have all the glory. Amen.

  • Al December 25, 2016 at 00:24 /

    As an American who lives in the Bible belt section of our great nation, it sickens me that the powers to be of our government can turn their backs on such a wonderful people of the great country like Israel. My feelings on this knife in the back of the Jewish people is that our country is and has been lead by a very evil and sinister leader. However, with our new pro-Israel president elect Trump, things will begin to be righted between our two countries. I pray the Lord will soo double bless both our countries.

  • Susan Miller December 25, 2016 at 00:20 /

    Well spoken, Stan. I am simply heartbroken at the way Israel has been treated. I cannot believe the way things have been going recently. How can they deny the Jewish people ‘s links to the land and Jerusalem? It’s wicked. God bless and protect Israel.

  • Patricia Stone December 24, 2016 at 20:27 /

    Stan, thank you for being an obedient servant and mouthpiece of God. The audacity of men and of nations to think they can defy the Lord God Almighty, maker of heaven and Earth. Woe to you O’men and Nations who have perpetrated this satanic resolution against the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; against God’s Land, Israel; and against God’s people, Israel.

    2 Samuel 7:10 Moreover I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more, as beforetime,

    2 Chronicles 33:8 Neither will I any more remove the foot of Israel from out of the land which I have appointed for your fathers; so that they will take heed to do all that I have commanded them, according to the whole law and the statutes and the ordinances by the hand of Moses

    Obadiah 1:15 For the day of the Lord is near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done (unto Israel), it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head.

    Eester 9:24 Because Haman the son of Hammedatha, the Agagite, the enemy of all the Jews, had devised against the Jews to destroy them, and had cast Pur, that is, the lot, to consume them, and to destroy them; 25 But when Esther came before the king, he commanded by letters that his wicked device, which he devised against the Jews, should return upon his own head, and that he and his sons should be hanged on the gallows.

    Isaiah 60:12 For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted.

    The nation’s that have signed unto this resolution have actually signed unto their own demise. Their lands will come under the curse, and as they are witnessing these very days in the form of terrorism and they have opened wide their borders to those who hate God’s people and God’s land. How arrogant that any think to undo that which God hath determined.

    Genesis 26:2 And the Lord appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of: 3 Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father;4 And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; 5 Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.

    Jeremiah 11:3 And say thou unto them, Thus saith the Lord God of Israel; ****Cursed be the man that obeyeth not the words of this covenant, *****4 Which I commanded your fathers in the day that I brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, from the iron furnace, saying, Obey my voice, and do them, according to all which I command you: so shall ye be my people, and I will be your God: 5 That I may perform the oath which I have sworn unto your fathers, to give them a land flowing with milk and honey, as it is this day. Then answered I, and said, So be it, O Lord.

    Micah 7:18 Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy. 19 He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea. 20 Thou wilt perform the truth to Jacob, and the mercy to Abraham, which thou hast sworn unto our fathers from the days of old.

    Exodus 13:5 And it shall be when the Lord shall bring thee into the land of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee, a land flowing with milk and honey,

    Exodus 33:1 And the Lord said unto Moses, Depart, and go up hence, thou and the people which thou hast brought up out of the land of Egypt, unto the land which I sware unto Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, saying, Unto thy seed will I give it: 2 And I will send an angel before thee; and I will drive out the Canaanite, the Amorite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite: 3 Unto a land flowing with milk and honey:

    Deuteronomy 1:8 Behold, I have set the land before you: go in and possess the land which the Lord sware unto your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give unto them and to their seed after them.

    So many verses regarding God’s promise to give his land to the children of Israel. The Lord has been gracious to all nations in giving them the choice to abide by and stand with him in establishing HIS KINGDOM and inheriting the blessing in standing by HIS PEOPLE AND HIS LAND. Now they have brought upon themselves the curse.


    2 John 1:9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed. 11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

    This verse does not apply to the Jewish people, as at this time, blindness has been appointed unto them, for God’s purposes and until his appointed time. However the nations have opened wide their doors (borders) to those whose sacred book tells them to strike terror into the hearts of Christians and Jews. Whose book tells them that GOD HATH NO SON NEITHER HATH HE NEED OF ONE.

    Have mercy.

  • Barbara Flewelling December 24, 2016 at 15:46 /

    As old as I am, Stan, I think I will live to see the complete destruction of those who would dare to go against the People of God!! They fear not….because they know not the God of the Universe; the God Who gave that piece of land to His Chosen Ones…the Jews…through Abraham, Isaac and ISRAEL!

  • Paul Becker December 24, 2016 at 11:56 /

    As a natural born New Zealander now living in Australia I now fear for my home country, particulary as NZ was under the leadership of a Jewish Prime Minister until recently. He presided over the policy executed by the security council. I pray that the nation will repent and change course. NZ needs a Donald Trump to get the Nation back on track.
