Three years ago, I wrote about Putin recongnizing West Jerusalem as the capitol of Israel, and now we're seeing even more movement toward a peace deal!
Russia, at that time, was the only nation other than the United States to acknowledged Israel's right to Jerusalem. We're now seeing more nations acknowledge this!
This lines up perfectly with what we are waiting for and know will end up coming to pass...
We know specifically from the Bible that there will be a 7 year peace agreement which will be what the Bible prophesied to be what we call the Confirmation of the Covenant. (the covenant God made with Abraham defining the land of Israel)
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.
In this Old Testament verbiage, a week means a “week of years”, or seven years (Genesis 29:27). The confirmation of the covenant is this: there will be an international agreement to confirm the status of Jerusalem and the permanent borders of Israel. These things are being fought over right now with the Palestinians. The Antichrist will confirm the covenant along with many others. It may be hard to identify him at that time. In the midst of this “week” (three and one half years in), the Antichrist will cause the animal sacrifices being performed in the rebuilt temple to cease, and will cause the “abomination of desolation” by either claiming to be God or acting in the place of God. That is when we will definitely know who he is.
We also know that the area which is now the West Bank, which was called Judaea in the Bible, will be unsafe for Jews when the Antichrist takes over the world (Matt 24:16, Mark 13:14, Luke 21:21).
This area is called the West Bank but is actually along the Eastern border of Israel.
It follows perfectly that when the covenant is confirmed and the peace treaty signed, that the East side of Jerusalem will remain in Palestinian hands and the West Bank will still be an area that will be controlled by Muslims, but settled by Jews.
When the Antichrist takes over (almost certainly to be a Muslim) he will cause Jews to be hunted and killed, so being in that area will be very, very dangerous for Jews at that time, just as Jesus said it would be.
Keep a watch on the news and I will send updates as they come to pass.
The Day of the Lord draws nigh!!!
