Sanhedrin Threatens God’s Judgment Upon the United Nations



In a move that seems to be a first, the Sanhedrin has indicated that God’s judgment is going to come upon the United Nations if it has a particular type of debate this Wednesday:

Sanhedrin to UN: Goldstone Will Bring Judgment Upon You
Israel National News – Nov 2, 2009
The Sanhedrin has warned the UN General Assembly not to hold a plenum debate this Wednesday on the anti-Israel Goldstone Report.In a letter to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon and the UN’s member states, the Sanhedrin warns that continued consideration of what it calls the “hostile, fallacious, and malicious” Goldstone document will bring upon the world the catastrophic events described in the Bible’s Book of Joel, Chapter 4….

“I will gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshafat; and I will enter into judgment with them there for My people and for My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and divided My land… And the children of Judah and the children of Jerusalem you have sold to the children of the Jevanim, in order to distance them from their border.  Behold I will arouse them from the place where you sold them, and I will return your retribution upon your head. And I will sell your sons and daughters into the hands of the children of Judah… Announce this among the nations: Prepare war, arouse the mighty men… Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears… Gather and come, all you nations from around – and they shall gather; there the Lord shall break your mighty men… for their evil is great…

“And the Lord shall roar from Zion, and from Jerusalem He shall give forth His voice, and the heavens and earth shall quake, and the Lord is a shelter to His people and a stronghold for the children of Israel. And you shall know that I, the Lord your God, dwell in Zion, My holy mount, and Jerusalem shall be holy, and strangers shall no longer pass through there…. And Egypt shall become desolate, and Edom shall be a desert waste, because of the violence done to the children of Judah, because they shed innocent blood in their land. But Judah shall remain forever, and Jerusalem throughout all generations.”

The letter is signed by Rabbi Dov Stein, Secretary of the Sanhedrin, and Rabbi Prof. Hillel Weiss, spokesman.

While God’s judgment (called “the day of the Lord” in scripture; see Can the Great Tribulation Begin in 2009, 2010, or 2011?) will come upon this world, linking Joel 4 to the debate is not something I would have done for three reasons.  They are that Joel only has 3 chapters, the above comes from chapter 3, and that I do not believe that the UN debate is really the subject of the passage.

The Sanhedrin is most known for its efforts to restore sacrifices and possibly rebuild the temple (see Temple In Jerusalem is Not Required For Sacrifices).

They are also mentioned in the following article:

Why is a Jewish Temple in Jerusalem Not Required? Although people like Timothy LaHaye  teach a third Jewish temple is required, who is ‘the temple of God” in the New Testament?  This new article goes over , in much more detail, the biblical reasons why a a third Jewish temple in Jerusalem is not necessary.
