The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) passed a resolution calling for a ceasefire in Gaza in exchange for the release of hostages. Based on President Joe Biden’s ‘Three-phase proposal for durable peace in the Middle East,’ the ceasefire resolution was supported by 14 member-states, with Russia abstaining. The final text urges Israel and Hamas to implement the ceasefire terms immediately and unconditionally, indicating modifications were made to avoid vetoes from Russia or China.

Hamas expressed willingness to cooperate with mediators on the ceasefire terms, while Israeli officials labeled the ceasefire resolution as “problematic.” The Israeli government contends that the resolution misrepresents its stance, emphasizing that a permanent ceasefire is contingent upon Hamas’s loss of control in Gaza and the dismantling of its military capabilities. The Biden administration aims for a complete end to the war in exchange for a gradual hostage release, which includes Palestinian prisoners.

The American resolution asserts that Israel accepted the ceasefire terms while also supporting a two-state solution and rejecting any territorial changes in Gaza. This is incorrect, however, as the resolution contradicts Prime Minister Netanyahu’s plan, which involves maintaining Israeli security control over Gaza post-war. U.S. Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield emphasized the vote for peace, though Israel’s Ambassador Gilad Erdan avoided the session, highlighting the discord between Jerusalem and Washington.

How Should We Pray about This Ceasefire Resolution?

This ceasefire resolution may sound nice, but it is not in Israel’s best interest. Hamas has claimed that it will repeat October 7 until Israel is destroyed. True peace in the Middle East cannot exist as long as groups like Hamas continue to threaten, attack, and target Israel.

Here’s how we recommend praying:

  • Pray for a biblical understanding of Israel. Pray for truth to overcome the many lies about Israel, the current war, and the motivations of Hamas.
  • Pray for victory. Pray that Israel would be victorious against the terrorists who seek to destroy it.
  • Pray for Jews. Antisemitism is increasing. Let’s pray that the Jewish people would turn to Christ in this dark time.

HAMAS can bring a permanent ceasefire by its unconditional surrender to Israel, as Japan and Germany did at the end of World War II. Look at how prosperous now to the lack of prosperity in Gaza under HAMAS.

A ceasefire will only allow hamas & other terrorists to continue their agenda. UN has NO right to interfere with Israel’s war on terrorists! Period! A ceasefire seems silly when the enemy does not play by the same rules, will never honor any agreement stipulations, and will only return to building, yet again, another large military complex and weapons inventory. A ceasefire also negates all the progress made, and dishonors all who have died or been injured in this war effort. A slap in the face
Sorry, my view is a definate, “NO”. But my view does not matter.

Lord, this agreement proposed by President Biden allows the Hamas jihad to continue existing in Gaza. It is not in the best interest of Israel, as Netanyahu has clearly stated. You, alone, Lord, have the best solution for the entire region, so we pray that your solution will bring an end to the military conflict. May your Peace become a reality and all of the people be blessed, in your Holy name, Yeshua our Lord. Amen

FATHER, we plead the BLOOD of Yeshua HaMashiach over Bibi Netanyahu. Over his brain, heart and strength to endure Obiden, Blinken Winken and Nod. To STAND in agreement with his war cabinet, Israeli majority, his promises to end Hamas terror, Rescue all of the captives and rule Gaza for a safe and secure nation in the LAND IN YESHUA’S HOLY NAME AMEN AMEN
