UN’s ICJ orders Israel to stop its military operation in Rafah but it has no power to make Israel stop

Today, the United Nation’s top court, the International Court of Justice in The Hague, ordered Israel to stop its military operation in Rafah (ref. 1). This landmark ruling is some kind of emergency measure and part of a wider case brought by South Africa that accuses Israel of genocide.

Of course, Israel intends to continue the war, in order to liberate the hostages that are still alive, and to secure the south.

The accusation of genocide is actually false because Israel has decided to go into Gaza with infantry, fighting building by building. As a result, the IDF has lost a number of soldiers to ambushes. Israel took this approach because of the problem of hostages. If Hamas had not taken hostages, then the whole of Gaza could have been flattened from afar by artillery or heavy bombers.

But even so, during WW2, Britain and the USA carpet bombed Dresden Germany, and it is thought that tens of thousands and up to hundreds of thousands of civilians were killed as a result. Dresden was not industrial, nor was it significant militarily. In that same war, the USA dropped incendiary bombs on Tokyo Japan, which was filled with wooden houses. Over a hundred thousand were killed and many more were injured. To add to that, there were the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki with atomic bombs. Those were meant to compel an unconditional surrender. Notice, neither Britain nor the USA was accused of genocide by anyone.

What makes the ICJ even more of a farce is that the judges of the ICJ neither have the authority nor the power to bring about anything that they decide.

Contrast that with the saints, the holy ones of God. After the day of the LORD and probably for 1000 years, all of the saints, as soldiers of Jesus Christ, will judge this world.

Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Know ye not that we shall judge angels? …

1 Corinthians 6:2-3

As a new creature of God, a saint will have authority as well as fiery power to make things happen.

Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand; To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD.

Psalms 149:5-9

Later on, because of Satan, there will be some complication, but the saints that remain loyal to God come what may will continue as “pillars of the earth”, keeping the world steady and upright.

The LORD killeth, and maketh alive: he bringeth down to the grave, and bringeth up. The LORD maketh poor, and maketh rich: he bringeth low, and lifteth up. He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth [the saints] are the LORD’S, and he hath set the world upon them. He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail. The adversaries of the LORD shall be broken to pieces; out of heaven shall he thunder upon them: the LORD shall judge the ends of the earth; and he shall give strength unto his king [Jesus Christ], and exalt the horn of his anointed [Jesus Christ].

1 Samuel 2:6-10

In other news, Pope Francis of the Vatican has just decreed that a London-born Italian Carlo Acutis, who was some sort of Catholic online influencer that died of leukaemia in 2006, has two miracles attributed to him, and therefore he is set to be beatified in the eyes of the Catholic Church as a “saint” (ref. 2).

However, the Catholic Church is completely wrong about the idea of a saint. The Vatican’s theologians have wrested scripture to create a new concept that serves only to further the Vatican’s agenda and coffers.

As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.

2 Peter 3:16

In due time, the truth will be apparent to all.

In yet other news, China has carried out 2 consecutive days of war games around the island of Taiwan, after the new president of Taiwan made separatist remarks (ref. 3). In their own words, the PLA has said that these exercises serve to test its ability to “launch joint attacks and occupy key areas”, and even “seize power”.

Taiwan has responded by moving to a war footing.

Guardian News on Taiwan

So, for now, there are rumours of war.

And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.

Mark 13:7-8

But when the time is right, there will be war. Such a war would not only be the opening of the 2nd seal, but probably also lead to Isaiah 27, the day of the east wind, lit. Dong Feng 东风.

Now, in regard to China vs Taiwan, a case of nation against nation and kingdom against kingdom, notice Israel vs Gaza is actually more or less the same. What I mean is, as of now, Gaza is a territory within the state of Israel but several nations are trying to recognise it as an independent nation. The world is adamant that there must be separatism and a two-state solution.

Imagine if the USA were to openly insist on separatism and a two-state solution in regard to China and Taiwan.

Despite the world, Hamas in particular and the Palestinians in general insist on wiping out all of Israel through jihad because they think Allah is greater. Their ambition of from the river to the sea, if it were realised, would mean actual genocide of Israelis.

For this reason, in the end, the very opposite will happen. On the day of the LORD – that one day – all of Gaza and more will be cleared and taken. The saints together with the angels of God will be the ones that will do it, rather than the IDF.

Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD’S anger. For Gaza shall be forsaken, and Ashkelon a desolation: they shall drive out Ashdod at the noon day, and Ekron shall be rooted up. Woe unto the inhabitants of the sea coast, the nation of the Cherethites! the word of the LORD is against you; O Canaan, the land of the Philistines, I will even destroy thee, that there shall be no inhabitant. And the sea coast shall be dwellings and cottages for shepherds, and folds for flocks. And the coast shall be for the remnant of the house of Judah…

Zephaniah 2:3-7

This means, for Gaza, the end is nigh!
