UN upgrades Palestinian Authority's Abbas to "Head of State"

From Montreal Gazette:

"The United Nations has assigned head-of-state status to the leader of the Palestinian Authority ahead of an anticipated vote by the world body on whether to recognize Palestinian statehood, a speakers list for the world body's annual debate shows. An "HS" designation means that Mahmoud Abbas, as the Palestinian Authority president, can speak towards the beginning of the Sept. 21-27 summit alongside other heads of state — and ahead of most heads of government, such as Prime Minister Stephen Harper. In previous years, Abbas has been listed as an "HL" — or "high level" delegate — for the entity of Palestine, which holds UN Observer status."

When the Montreal Gazette editor inquired about it, he was told it was "a typo." Sure. Sure it is. Anne Bayefsky of the New York-based monitoring group Eye on the UN caught it. She told the editor of the Gazette, "The UN has pre-judged any vote that might take place on Palestinian statehood...".

It seems that the boulder is truly rolling pell-mell down the hill toward the inevitable splitting of Jerusalem. The LORD takes this very seriously. He will judge all for their treatment of His people and His land. Read Joel 3! And this from Jeremiah 25:31

"The tumult will resound to the ends of the earth, for the LORD will bring charges against the nations; he will bring judgment on all mankind and put the wicked to the sword,'" declares the LORD."

The LORD'S sweet promises never fail. Neither do His judgment promises. Make sure you are on the right side of the line, and repent! He is coming soon.

Can we interpret the Bible by finding out what this verse means to me?

Have you ever gone to a Bible study and either they use a curriculum or the Bible itself, and the teacher reads a passage and then opens it ...
