Pacific Pearls have made a public stance as strong supporters of Israel. We are “Maori For Israel“. We are believers in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The God of Israel. As Maori we understand sovereignty and connection to the whenua (land), but more importantly, we understand what the Word of God says about Israel.
I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” Genesis 12:3
In 2016, when our NZ Government supported the UN Security Council Resolution 2334, we stood with thousands of New Zealander’s and people around the world, to publicly oppose and reject that resolution. We launched a social media Wero (challenge) campaign across the nation, we signed an 11,685 petition, challenged sitting MP’s, stood together with christian groups who rallied, some churches marched, we joined with the nation to prophetically blow shofars at sunrise, and supported a small contingent on assignment to Israel with a”signed covenant on behalf of NZ (translated by Pearls Taranaki).
Our nation and our land stirred from the injustice! New Zealand rose up!
Our Pearls National Director, Stephanie Harawira runs the Facebook Page Kia Ora Israel which is a social media “Wero” (challenge) to correct the misinformation out there in the social media space about Israel. Israel is in a very Prophetic hour Matthew 24, and we watch intently towards Israel – we know God watches over HIS Word to perform it (Jeremiah 1:12) and everything will come to pass as “it is written”.
Besides the biblical connection – our maori connection also stems from the involvement with our people in World War 1 and 2 and that created strong affinities with the land of Israel and its people. We understand discrimination, dispossession, expulsion and we understand the yearning in ones heart for the land in which their forefathers and their forefathers came from.
Whilst Aotearoa is a small country and as we are the furtherest ends of the earth, Pacific Pearls have drawn the line in the sand and our support for Israel is unwavering as we head into perilous times. The facts are the facts, the whakapapa is the whakapapa (genealogy), the Word is the Word. The rise of anti-semitism, the worldwide BDS media campaign, the United Nations itself, are all sounding gongs. At the end of the day, the fact remains. The Jewish history was written in the world’s history books, and into God’s eternal book. Kia Ora Israel – Kia Kaha! You are not alone! Be encouraged! GOD’S WORD will always come to pass (Isaiah 40:8)
Let The WORD Of God Dwell In You Richly: (Colossians 3:16)
1. God promised the People of Israel the land of Israel as an everlasting inheritance:
2. Judea & Samaria (the Renown West Bank) and Jerusalem are the heart of the Biblical Israel and Judah:
In countless references in the Bible, we read about the Jewish connection to the West Bank and Jerusalem (both old and new testament). Interestingly, all of Abraham’s alter sites where he received from the Lord the promises of everlasting land inheritance, are located on the “West Bank” and East Jerusalem.
3. It was always God’s plan to restore the Jews to their home land in the last days:
Judgements awaits nations who try to dis-inherit the Jewish people of their land:
