At the UN International Court of Justice, South Africa formally accuses Israel of committing genocide in Gaza

Today, at the United Nations International Court of Justice in The Hague, Netherlands, South Africa commenced its case formally accusing the nation of Israel of committing genocide in Gaza (ref. 1).

Israel, choosing to defend itself at the ICJ rather than ignore the case, rejected the accusation and said South Africa has taken on the role of the Devil’s advocate by defending Hamas which started this war on October 7, slaughtering and also kidnapping soldiers and civilians alike, including the old and the very young (ref. 1).

This case, which is now in the international spotlight, could be an instance of Mark 13:9-11, something that is prophesied to happen in these last days concerning Jews: “Ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them”. If it is, then whatever the state of Israel happens to say in this court case is from God himself, the Holy Spirit.

But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them. And the gospel must first be published among all nations. But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.

Mark 13:9-11

Then again, Mark 13:10’s mentioning of the gospel is a reference to the two witnesses. As of now, the two witnesses are not yet here, therefore the Holy Spirit might not yet be here.

Another verse that strikes me as potentially relevant to this news of the ICJ and Israel is Isaiah 54:17, particularly the part that goes, “Every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn.”

… every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.

Isaiah 54:17

Isaiah 54:17 is something about the saints as in the 144000 soldiers of the kingdom of God. Since the humans of Judah that are to become priests and ministers are also described as “saints”, in Daniel 7:21-22 for instance, and since there will be 12000 of the tribe of Judah among the 144000, I bring up Isaiah 54:17.

Now, you might think that the word condemn in “thou shalt condemn” means merely criticise, or something like that. According to Strong’s 7561, condemn is closer in meaning to the following: “to deal with or account as wicked”. In the New Shorter Oxford English Dictionary, two noteworthy definitions of condemn are “consign to perdition” and “damn to hell”.

So, in time, quite likely, South Africa will be made to suffer for this, by a saint or an angel of God. It might even be a collective punishment. After all, the people of South Africa democratically elected the government that brought this about.

I should also remind that the Zulus, at the time of the Anglo-Zulu wars in the 19th century, were a people that worshipped demons, i.e. angels in rebellion against God. What is more, Nelson Mandela, highly esteemed by modern-day South Africa, was actually on America’s terror watch list before he entered politics. Mandela founded the ANC’s armed wing that assumed a Zulu identity and waged a guerrilla war against the government of South Africa. Subsequently, Mandela was imprisoned by the authorities. This Zulu link explains why, post-apartheid South Africa has long chosen to side with the Palestinians rather than with Israel.

As for the ICJ, I have already said that at some point in the not too distant future, the UN itself will be no more, meaning the headquarters, its funding, and even the need for such an organisation will all disappear.

So, it is a terrible mistake to try to undermine and speak ill of God’s people, both the saints of Jacob and the humans of Judah.

The retribution when it comes will be fierce.

To give you an example, in Ezekiel 25, there is a prophecy that because a certain people merely rejoice in their hearts and clap their hands when the nation of Israel is besieged and when the temple of God on the Temple Mount is profaned, towards the end that people will perish as a nation and they will be cut off entirely.

Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou saidst, Aha, against my sanctuary, when it was profaned; and against the land of Israel, when it was desolate; and against the house of Judah, when they went into captivity; Behold, therefore I will…

Ezekiel 25:3-4

For thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast clapped thine hands, and stamped with the feet, and rejoiced in heart with all thy despite against the land of Israel; Behold, therefore I will stretch out mine hand upon thee, and will deliver thee for a spoil to the heathen; and I will cut thee off from the people, and I will cause thee to perish out of the countries: I will destroy thee; and thou shalt know that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 25:6-7

The metaphor of the body of Christ means, to challenge a priest, any of the chosen and holy of Judah, or to challenge a saint, any of the 144000 that is loyal to God, is to challenge God himself.

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Matthew 25:40

At the time of Moses, when an Israelite priest did speak and judge on behalf of God, it was a commandment that anyone who would not listen to him was to be killed.

And the man that will do presumptuously, and will not hearken unto the priest that standeth to minister there before the LORD thy God, or unto the judge, even that man shall die: and thou shalt put away the evil from Israel. And all the people shall hear, and fear, and do no more presumptuously.

Deuteronomy 17:12-13

In the future, once the kingdom of God begins, Jews serving as “priests” (ref. Isaiah 66:21) across the world will once again actually speak for God. They will do so because of the new covenant and the Holy Spirit. This is why, any tongue that shall rise against a Jew that is holy, serving in the capacity of a minister, will be condemned.

The same goes for the saints, the soldiers of the kingdom of God, who will serve as “judges” (ref. Isaiah 24:23) across the world. When the 144000 are reaped, the saints will also be holy. But for a saint, it will be the saint himself that will do the condemning. Because every saint will be in a position to give someone hell, as the saying goes.

So that explains Isaiah 54:17, “Every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn”.

Going back to the matter of human Jews, except for God and his angels, no one knows who among the Jews that are alive today have been chosen to become holy and to live on from generation to generation as the people of God.

And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.

Daniel 12:1

This is why in these last days anyone that is against Jews generally, or against the state of Israel as it is now, is at risk of being against God himself.
