Secretary of State John Kerry and the Obama administration have failed to achieve the peace agreement between the Palestinian Authority and Israel. The peace process was doomed from the beginning specifically when any person or nation seek to be led by any other power, god or national objective against Israel. This process was doomed by incompetent ignorance of the history of the Jewish people and their God. As a Muslim educated child, Mr. Obama will never accomplish peace in the Middle East. \Israel’s Haaretz News, June 8, 2014 Edition, headlines “Obama: Odds of reaching final Israeli-Palestinian peace deal are 'less than fifty-fifty.'
Israel is not expected to find the Messiah, except on an individual basis, until the end time scenario evolves into Jacob’s trouble or the Tribulation referenced by Jesus and John in Revelation.
The Apostle Paul declares that all Israel will be saved, but this must occur in or after the Tribulation. Daniel 9:27 leads the thought process with the quote, “And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week (of years): and in the midst of the week (31/2 years) he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate.”
Jesus said in Matthew 24 that when you see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, the tribulation will be greater than any other time since the beginning of the world. Then He said, Let all flee into the mountains.
How could anyone convince Israel to enter a peace agreement when all nations around them have sworn to annihilate the nation of Israel? Israel will be deceived into believing that the Messiah has come as the One World leader, better known to the Bible student as the anti-Christ, who comes as a world conqueror.
There is an interesting clue in Daniel 8:23-25 where he describes a fierce-looking king, a master of intrigue, will arise. He will cause astounding devastation and will succeed in whatever he does. He will destroy those who are mighty, the holy people.
Dan 8:25 continues, “and through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many.”
Do we have Biblical proof or prophecy which tells us the time table today?Yes, but there is no date setting. As one of the lion cubs of England we have stretched the limits of national debt that is comparable to a third world country. Today, many countries are looking for a one world savior that can create jobs and craft, master the finances of the world to make everything prosper and solve world problems. The technology is in place to control spending electronically and to totally stop spending as may be regulated by a worldwide government.
There are two alarm clocks nearing the time to sound the beginning of Tribulation. The first will ring the alarm at the time of building the temple in Jerusalem. This discussion was recorded in the Star June 1, 2014. Today’s Signpost recognizes the second alarm that should sound when a peace agreement or covenant occurs with many that includes Israel.
Keep in mind that God disclosed the information in the infallible Word of God and God is in control whenever and whatever is planned for this earth.
