The following news item demonstrates this claim. “The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) voted recently to officially declare Rachel's Tomb to be a mosque. UNESCO director Irena Bokova had previously stated “concern” at Israel's decision to treat the tomb as a heritage site.
The vote called for Rachel's Tomb and the Tomb of the Patriarchs – the burial site of the other Biblical Patriarchs and Matriarchs – to be removed from Israel's National Heritage list.
The Palestinian Authority has claimed that Rachel's Tomb is holy to Muslims as the site of a mosque called the Bilal Bin Rabah Mosque. The PA demands control over both the tomb and the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hevron, as well as the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.”
The amazing thing is that the prophet foretold these very things 2500 years ago.
“Thus saith the Lord GOD; because the enemy hath said against you, Aha, even the ancient high places are ours in possession:” (Ezekiel 36:2)
“Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Surely in the fire of my jealousy have I spoken against the residue of the heathen, and against all Idumea, which have appointed my land into their possession with the joy of all their heart, with despiteful minds, to cast it out for a prey.” (Ezekiel 36:5)
These prophecies are being fulfilled now before our very eyes! These prophecies have never been fulfilled in the past. Fulfilled prophecy proves the Bible is God’s Word and that God writes history in advance. Fulfilled prophecy proves that God is the Sovereign Lord of the universe.
To add to the amazement of it all, a study by Jimmy De Young demonstrates that the Palestinians are the Idumeans or the Edomites.
The world has joined the Palestinians in declaring that that the Promised Land belongs to them. Listen to what the God of Israel says. “For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.” (Ezekiel 36:24)
We are reminded of what David said about this very situation in Psalm 2: 1-4. “Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine 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 bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision.”
God has a time for all His purposes, Just wait. The time for the Palestinians may not be very far away.
