Palestinian leaders reject President Trump’s Middle East Peace Plan.

President Trump has not even officially announced his new Middle East Peace Plan, but whenever he finally does, it might be dead on arrival because Palestinian leaders are already publicly criticizing and opposing it, which is somewhat surprising since it supposedly hands them control over east Jerusalem and allows them to establish the capital of their new state of Palestine there.

Hardly a day passes without the leadership of the Palestinian Authority (PA) affirming its strong opposition to US President Donald Trump’s yet-to-be-announced Middle East peace plan, also referred to as the “deal of the century.” Palestinian leaders have convinced their people that Trump is the worst person on the face of the earth and that no one should be doing business with him.

The Palestinian Authority is not the only Palestinian party that continues to voice its opposition to the upcoming peace plan. No Palestinian group or individual has come out in favor the plan, although no one in the Middle East seems to have seen it or knows anything about its details. Trump has united the Palestinians in a way that no Palestinian or Arab has been able to do since the beginning of the Hamas-Fatah war 11 years ago.

The Palestinians are united in their opposition to the Trump administration and its policies, especially in the aftermath of the US president’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and relocate the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, as well as its decision to cut US funding to the Palestinian Authority for paying terrorists and to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA). The Palestinians have already determined that the US peace plan is “biased” in favor of Israel, and that is why, they say, they cannot accept it. (Source: gatestoneinstitute.org)

We might soon see history repeating since previous Palestinian leaders have also rejected offers to give them parts of Israel. They have repeatedly rejected any plan calling for anything other than the total annihilation of Israel.

Whatever their reasons, rejecting President Trump’s plan to divide Jerusalem would be a good thing for the United States since it would stop us from dividing God’s land. The Bible clearly identifies the boundaries of the land God gave to Israel. (Joshua 15:2-12, Numbers 34 and Ezekial 47)

The prophet Zechariah warned that whoever touches Israel touches the apple of God’s eye (Zechariah 2:8). He also warned God will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the nations and all who lift it will be severely injured.

1 The burden of the word of the Lord concerning Israel. Thus declares the Lord who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him,
2 “Behold, I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that causes reeling to all the peoples around; and when the siege is against Jerusalem, it will also be against Judah.
3 It will come about in that day that I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples; all who lift it will be severely injured. And all the nations of the earth will be gathered against it. (Zechariah 12:3)

Their saying they reject the peace plan because of Trump, is probably an excuse. They want it all or nothing. They were offered half of Jerusalem before and rejected it.

I think they are hoping all the Arab countries will unite to defeat Israel, then they can walk in and take over.

I think Middle East War is the only thing that will bring both sides together to sign the treaty, and for the temple to be rebuilt.

Our president needs prayer for great wisdom. A few prophetic words on dividing Jerusalem and/or Israel:

“If President Obama tries to split Jerusalem into two, God is going to split U.S. into two first. If the New Madrid fault-lines collapse, it will be a horrific earthquake.” ~ Bob Jones

“But the Lord was showing me, I believe, that if we continue to fool with Jerusalem, and our Secretary of State and our President keeps putting pressure on Israel to give up land and to give up Jerusalem for peace, I believe that a major earthquake is going to strike America.” ~ John Kilpatrick (dream)

About that time it came back to the anchor. He said, “Ladies and gentlemen, another tragedy has hit America.” He said, “Right in the heartland of America on the New Madrid fault, a major earthquake has just hit.” And immediately pictures of devastation began to pop up all over America – the heartland of America along the New Madrid fault – as earthquakes caused entire cities to crumble. And while I was setting there, I heard a booming voice in behind my ear that said, “They have divided My land; now I will divide their land.” ~ Shane Warren (open vision)

When he spoke those words, I saw this map of U.S., like in a three-dimensional, you know. It appeared right before my eyes beside the angel. And he took the sword and pierced right into the heart of the U.S. and cut into two. He said, “Likewise will this nation be divided as Jerusalem will be divided.” He cut the land into two exactly in the center. ~Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj (open vision)

Wow! really gets my thinking wheels turning, wonder what is next…perhaps there won’t be a peace plan until Trump is out of office. It is by GRACE and MERCY…honestly that the plan was rejected!! I don’t want our country responsible for dividing the land of Israel, I can’t even stand or agree with that decision…..

I guess that there is some question as to whether this is a true quote or not but it shows what we are headed for.

“What we want is a man of sufficient stature to hold all alliances of all the people and to lift us out of the economic morass into which we are sinking. Send us this man, and be he god or devil, we will receive him”
Henry Spaak / secretary general of NATO
President of United Nations general assembly 1946-47
Let’s hope that Trump does not split Israel.
And as for NATO and the UN.
Be careful what you wish for.

An Israeli newspaper posted this also. Any division of Israel would be bad.

Of course they want nothing to do with Trump’s peace deal as he has moved his embassy to Israel’s capital Jerusalem and he has stopped funding their terrorist organizations that teach their kids to kill Jews and rewards those that get killed while trying to do that with aid money.

It seems like we dodged a bullet, still we have to stay vigilant and keep praying for Pres. Trump, this news is highly significant, though it begs the question, even if the plan is dead on arrival, would the plan simply being showcased constitute as “dividing the” Lord’s “land”?

In any case, this is definitely a blessing.
Seems as if the peace plan will be kept in storage till the anti-christ drops in, atleast that’s what it’s looking like.

Hallelujah thank you Jesus!

I’ve been interceding for Trump for the past 5 months that The Lord would put it on his heart to stand 100% with Israel and not have fear of man or pride and want to please the world. There was no breakthrough, like it was already a done deal, and that Trump’s mind was made up to not stand completely with Israel. So, I lost hope and instead have just been praying for mercy.

Glory to God He has answered these prayers for more time despite Trump!!

We may have more time/mercy to keep working in preparing the body for what’s coming as most people in our country (including all the baby christians) do not realize the detrimental ramifications of betraying and dividing Israel.
