Philippines Should Vote "NO" On Palestinian UN Vote (Israel's Partition for Palestine)

The Philippines is a nation of believers who accept Scriptures as Truth. Hence, a complete and correct perspective of the issues around the land of Israel goes beyond the purely secular, diplomatic, and political to include the scriptural.
The votation in the UN for a Palestinian state is a God-given opportunity for our nation to vote for or against God`s expressed will and purpose.
The Jews as a people are unique in that God chose them as His own treasure among all peoples and tongues. The Land of Israel is likewise uniquely chosen, unconditionally and irrevocably promised by God as an eternal possession to Abraham and to his descendants through Isaac, and to the Israelites through Jacob [Israel], Abraham`s grandson.
  • Genesis 15: 18
    In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates...
  • Genesis 17:7-8
    I will give you and your descendants after you the land in which you are now foreigners, all the land of Canaan, as a permanent possession.
  • Genesis 35:10-12
    God said to him...`Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel shall be your name...And the land that I gave to Abraham and to Isaac, I will give to you and to your seed after you will I give the land.’
Jerusalem, in particular, is the city God Himself chose for His name to dwell.
  • 2 Chronicles 6:5-6
    ...but I have chosen Jerusalem that My name might be there...
  • Psalm 132:13-14
    For Adonai has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His habitation. This is my resting place forever and ever, here I will dwell, for I have desired it.
  • Psalm 122:6
    Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. May they prosper who love you.
Those nations that choose to go against Israel or to divide God’s land do so at their own peril, opening up their nations to God’s fierce judgment in the form of all kinds of disasters.
  • Zechariah 12:2-3; 9
    This is the message from the Lord, the Lord who spread out the skies, created the earth, and gave life to man. He says, "I will make Jerusalem like a cup of poison; the nations around her will drink and stagger like drunks. And when they besiege Jerusalem...I will make Jerusalem like a heavy stone...Any nation that tries to lift it will be hurt.
  • Zechariah 12:9
    When that day comes, I will seek to destroy all nations attacking Jerusalem.
  • Isaiah 60:12
    For the nation or kingdom that will not serve you (Israel) will perish; it will be utterly ruined.
  • Joel 3:2
    I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will enter into judgment against them concerning my inheritance, my people Israel, for they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land.
Filipinos, as a people, “invested” in the kingdom of God when the Philippines supported the Jews during critical moments in their beleaguered history, and then in 1958, signed a treaty of friendship with the State of Israel.
  • In 1939, the Philippines was the only country in Asia to open its doors to Jews fleeing the Holocaust in Europe. As part of his Open Doors Policy, then President Manuel L. Quezon issued 10,000 visas for Jewish refugees, established a housing community for them in Marikina, and even donated a large portion of his personal estate in Mindanao for a farm settlement for them.
  • On November 29, 1947, the Philippines was the only Asian country to cast a “Yes” vote to approve UN Resolution 181 creating the State of Israel.
  • President Carlos Garcia signed a Treaty of Friendship between Israel and the Philippines in 1958.
  • We do not want to lose our standing with the God of Israel and find ourselves instead on a collision course with His expressed will and purpose.
Let us be forewarned: The Philippines was a signatory to the nowretracted Goldstone Report, which condemned Israel for alleged war crimes in Gaza. The United Nations released the report on September 15, 2009. Exactly nine (9) days later, on September 24, 2009, Super-Typhoon Ondoy struck the Philippines with horrific devastating force that left almost the entire country staggering and reeling with hundreds dead and missing, entire towns of people homeless, and billions of pesos lost in infrastructure and property damages. In Hebrew Gematria, the number 9 represents judgment.
Regarding His people, Israel, God declares in His Word both a blessing and a curse that we would do well to heed: “And I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” (Genesis 12:3).
