West Bank, UN, and patriarchs’ altars

From Fox News:  Arab nations backed Palestinians Wednesday, putting a resolution before the UN Security Council Wednesday that would demand an Israeli pullout from the West Bank and East Jerusalem within two years.

The known patriarch altar sites are located in the land historically called Judea and Samaria, but named the West Bank by Jordan. From 1948-1967, the land was under Jordanian rule. In 1967, it was occupied by Israel. It remains under Israeli military control but, for the most part, has not been annexed. In 1988, Jordan ceded its territorial claims to the PLO.

Our Father in heaven,

We see through a glass darkly and do not fully understand what happens in the spiritual realm when an altar to You is established. Are portals opened? Are they everlasting?

We do know this: Your Son Jesus was a carpenter, and He said, I am the door.  He walked throughout Judea and Samaria and said, I am the way. He taught throughout Judea and Samaria and said, I am the truth.  He raised Lazarus from the dead and said, I am the life.

We stand before Your throne in the name of Jesus and cry out for Your kingdom to come and Your will to be done at the patriarch altar sites as it is in heaven.  Amen.
