  • Middle East Peace Treaty Marks “The Beginning”

Dan. 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

Gen. 15:18 In the same day Yahweh made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates.

  • The fulfillment of this prophecy will be the signing of a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians. The prophesied agreement must do three things.
  • 1) Establish a Palestinian state in Judea (the West Bank).
  • 2) Allow the Jewish settlers presently living in Judea to remain in their homes, living as a Jewish minority in the new Palestinian state.
  • 3) Place the Temple Mount under an internationally supervised sharing arrangement allowing both Jews and Muslims to worship there.
  • When you see the prophesied peace agreement, know assuredly that the Final Seven Years to the Battle of Armageddon and the Second Coming of Yahshua Messiah have begun!
  • The Sixth Trumpet War

  • A war is coming that will emanate from the Middle East region and result in the killing of one-third of the world’s population.
  • This war is called the Sixth Trumpet War because it will occur at the sounding of the Sixth Trumpet as described in Revelation.

Rev. 9:13 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before Elohim,
9:14
Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.
9:15
And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.
9:16
And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.
9:17
And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.
9:18
By these three was the third part of men killed by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.

  • This war will take place just before, or shortly after, the peace agreement is signed.
  • The Bible does tell us that it must take place, at the latest, before the final three and one-half years begins. It could conceivably happen at any time now.
  • In the aftermath of the Sixth Trumpet War, in which 2.3 billion human beings will have died, the cry for a global organization that can prevent war will be deafening.
  • The International Community will adopt a world-governing entity to eliminate the possibility of a global war ever taking place again.
  • The nations of the world will surrender their sovereignty to the new world government so that it can eliminate war completely.
  • This world government will be the culmination of years of planning that have already been in progress.
  • Several years it had been generally believed that there were two major causes for war on earth–conflicts between nations and conflicts between religions.
  • The solution was simple in the minds of the global leaders.
  • (1) Do away with the nation-states and force everyone on earth to pledge allegiance to one single, ultimate political authority–a world government.
  • . (2) Abolish the doctrinal differences between all religious organizations and coerce church leaders to sign declarations of unity with a single, all-inclusive religious authority–a world religion.
  • The Bible predicts that these two entities will be governed by a duo of the most deceitful, demonic humans that have ever lived.
  • To begin with, a leader will arise from Europe (Daniel 7:8) that will have aided in the negotiations for the prophesied peace agreement.

Dan. 7:8 I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.

  • He will be a great orator and administrator, but with an ulterior motive in mind–a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
  • if you will. He will eventually seize the reigns of influence and be the most powerful politician in Europe.
  • From this powerbase, he will maneuver himself into control of the emerging world government.
  • At the beginning of his administration, this ascending world leader will be viewed, by many, as the next great peacemaker.
  • But to those who know their Bibles, he will shortly be recognized as the Antichrist!
  • Simultaneous with the emergence of the prophesied world government will be the birth of a global religious system. Interfaithism.
  • As it is already being called, will be a union of Catholicism and Protestantism under the leadership of the pope.
  • This religious union will be founded on the belief that Jews, Muslims and Christians all worship the same God while calling him by different names.
  • Interfaithism will attempt to embrace all the religions of the world. Scripture is clear that this religious union will be led by the pope.
  • Whoever is pope, at the time of the Antichrist, will fill the prophesied role of the False Prophet.
  • Even Roman Catholics believe there is an evil pope coming.
  • By the mid-way point of the final seven years, the world government, led by the Antichrist and the world religion (Revelation 13:11-14 and chapters 17 through 18), headed by the False Prophet, will have control over the majority of the world’s population.
  • When the final seven years begins, Revelation 11:1-2 states that the Temple Mount in Jerusalem will be placed under a sharing arrangement between Jews and Muslims.

Rev. 11:1 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of Elohim, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
11:2
But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.

  • The Jewish people will be allowed to build their Third Temple.

2Thes. 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called Elohim, or that is worshipped; so that he as Elohim sitteth in the temple of Elohim, shewing himself that he is Elohim.

  • When the temple is completed, animal sacrifices will be resumed (Daniel 9:27), just as was done in Old Testament times.

Dan. 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

  • The offering of animal sacrifices in the temple will quickly escalate into a world crisis.
  • The animal rights activists will demand that the Antichrist stop this slaughter of animals.
  • This dispute, over the animal sacrifices, will quickly lead to an event the Bible calls the Abomination of Desolation.
  • Abomination of Desolation at the Midway Point.

  • Once we reach the middle of this final seven-year period, prophetic fulfillments will rapidly increase with many events happening almost simultaneously.
  • The first of these events will be the stopping of the sacrifices at the Abomination of Desolation.
  • Daniel 11:31 foretells this event, “And arms shall stand on his part, and they (the Antichrist and his partners) shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.

Dan. 11:31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.

  • It appears that stopping the sacrifices and the Abomination of Desolation will occur at the same time.
  • Apparently, the Antichrist will explain that the sacrifices are no longer needed because he is the Messiah and Elohim. 2 Thessalonians 2:4
  • Apostle Paul described this event as the “revealing” of the man of sin (the Antichrist).
  • It should also be mentioned that whoever is pope, at the time of the Abomination of Desolation, will assume his role as the False Prophet.
  • He will be the leader of the world religious system and will perform miracles before the people of the world.

Rev. 13:13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
13:14
And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

  • Through these miracles, he will influence the world to pledge its allegiance to the Antichrist.
