The Seven Year Peace Treaty in Israel Has Been Signed.......... |

(Interesting Perspective)

Many students of bible prophecy have missed the signing of the 7 year peace treaty in Israel simply because they have not taken God's word literally. Before I go on let me quote the 2 main verses that reveal this event in prophecy.

Daniel 9:26, 'And after sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off, but not for himself: And the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end shall be with a flood, and until the end of the war desolations are determined.

Daniel 9:27, 'Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week: but in the midst of the week he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. and on the wing of abomination shall be one who makes it desolate, even until the consummation, which is determined is poured out on the desolate.

For those who are fairly new to bible prophecy I will be giving a little bit of boring information that is commonly accepted as truth during this presentation.

The word week here can easily be proved to mean weeks of years. One way to prove this is to go back to Genesis where Laban gives his daughters to Isaac for a week and it is revealed that he fulfills his 7 years. As well, the first 7 and 62 weeks where fulfilled exactly to the day when the Messiah was cut off and died when using the one day equals a year formula or the weeks of years rather than week. So then 7 and 62 weeks of years is equal to 483 years.

The 70 weeks in Daniel 9: 24 equals 490 years. The remaining 7 years that is the difference has never been fulfilled.

Note that it is not uncommon for scriptures to have undetermined allotments of time dividing one event from another. This is the case in this 490 years. Though the first 483 were fulfilled to the exact day when Jesus the Christ was crucified, the last 7 years has never in history been fulfilled to the letter until recently.

Now to understand who will make this covenant we must unravel Daniel 9:26. Here we are told that the prince of the people who destroyed the city will make the covenant.

In 70 A.D. Titus was given orders from Rome to take Israel into captivity and to destroy the city of Jerusalem. Judging from this then it was the Roman Empire that destroyed the city. So then the prince who will make the covenant is to be a prince of Rome.

Well many would say that the Roman Empire does not exist today, however , that is not entirely true. The Western Roman Empire fell to Germanic hordes in about 400 A.D. but the Eastern Empire remained in Constantinople until the 1400s. The main religion in Rome became Christianity by order of Emperor Constantine around 200 A.D.

At some point it was declared the Holy Roman Empire and popes were given rule over Rome. Though it is true that the Roman Empire did not exist after the 1400s, the Holy Roman Catholic Monarchy existed to this day. Now in our time we have the European Union whose 10 full member states all rule under the Holy Roman Catholic Monarchy, hence the Empire still exists to this day.

If you will do a study of the kingdoms that were to rule according to dreams and visions throughout Daniel you will learn that Rome was to be the final kingdom before the end of this age.

In Daniel 2 the statue with the head of gold was to be followed by the kingdom of silver and then bronze, then iron and then iron and clay. We know from Daniel 8 that the Gold represented Nebuchadnezzar, the silver was the Medes and the Persians, the bronze was the Greeks and history proves that the final kingdom was the Roman Empire.

Though there are 27 nations that belong to the European Union, there are only 10 that are full members with veto rites. The other 17 nations are lesser states. So then the prince that must confirm the covenant must come out of the EU.

Now the word 'prince' in Daniel 9:26 can be translated prince, commander, chief or any other title that could be considered an authority. This prince is to make a covenant with many nations so we see that he has something to do with foreign affairs.

The word covenant can be translated covenant or agreement. However, it does not mean 'peace treaty' as so many teach. This teaching stems from the idea that because first Thessalonians 5:4 says, 'And when they cry peace and safety, sudden destruction comes upon them'. If you study the context of Thessalonians you will find that it pertains to the time of the rapture at the end of the 7 years and has nothing to do with the topic at hand. No, in order top recognize the 7 year covenant you must realize that it is not necessarily a peace treaty.

Joveir Solana, whose office was Secretary General of the Western European Union, made separate agreements with many Middle Eastern countries over several years prior to 2007. These agreements would give each country the right to receive loans from the EU for the purpose of bringing stability in many areas of their governments. These loans would require substantial financial commitments from EU full member states and therefore had to be fixed into the EU upcoming budget. The term of the EU budget is 7 years and was due for renewal on Jan. 01/2007.

On this date Jovier Solana made a quick trip to the required office and gave his signature 'confirming' the agreements that he had set up prior to this date and therefore fulfilled all of the requirements that are called for in Daniel 9:26,27.

Now according to Daniel 9:27 he is to bring an end to the daily sacrifice in Jerusalem. Many have argued that there has to be a temple built in Jerusalem before he can do this. I believe you will find that this is not true if you pay close attention to the scriptures surrounding this issue. We know from second Thessalonians 2 that the wicked sits in the temple as god, however this event does not take place until the end of the 7 year covenant. Therefore it does not require a temple in the midst of the 7 years. Some say that he sits in the temple in the midst of the seven, but scripture says they set up an abomination and this is better translated an idol and cannot be translated as a person.

All that is required in the temple grounds for Daniel 9:27 is a place to do sacrifice. Israel has this now. They have just finished building an alter of sacrifice recently that fits requirements laid down in old testament law. As we speak Israel is calling on Jews world wide to send money to purchase lambs for sacrifices they are planning this June. Sometime in mid June is the middle of the 7 year covenant. They exact date is unknown because scripture tells us that the sacrifice will be stopped 'around' the middle of the 7 years.

From Daniel 11:21-31 we know that the king of Syria is responsible for the command to take away the daily sacrifice. According to history the king of the North in this scripture is this king of Syria. We are told in the verses mentioned that he will move against the king of the south, which history and the scriptures tell us is Egypt. Scripture tells us that he is stopped by ships from Kittim, which today is Cyprus.

He will be angry at the covenant, probably because if the covenant was not in place these ships would not be there. We are told that he has intelligence against those that transgress the covenant. This is very likely the fact that they are doing sacrifices of thousands of lambs which I am sure is contrary to UN laws governing the handling of sheep. The EU is tied to the laws of agriculture put forward by the UN. Daniel 11:31 then tells us that 'arms rise up on his part and take away the daily sacrifice and set there the abomination that causes desolation.

Notice that arms rise up on his part. In other words he squeals but someone else does the dirty work. In Daniel 8:11 we find that it is the Little Horn that actually takes away the daily sacrifice and sets up the abomination that causes desolation.

More about him in a minute.

Recently Syria has been trying to mend fences with Egypt, however, more recently they have had a parting of ways. We can only watch and see how this drama unfolds. But know this, that we are approaching the midst of the 7 years. Everything is in place for prophetic scriptures to unfold as we speak.

Now concerning the Little Horn there is much debate on who this could be but if we look at scripture we can narrow it down quite a bit and I believe his identity is obvious once you have the right information. First of all Daniel 8 :8,9 points you at the geographic region that he must come from.

The male goat here is said to come from Greece in verse 21. It followed the Medes and the Persians in verse 20. History tells us that this goat was Alexander the Great and that 8:9 is speaking of the 4 generals that divided his kingdom. So from here we can see that the Little Horn is not the president of the USA or an up and coming king of England etc... He is coming out of the Middle East. There are a couple of clues here that could not have been recognized many years ago but are now definite give aways.

Now understand that the main countries today that should be watched, considering the 4 generals territories, are Greece, Turkey, Syria, Assyria, Iran, Palestine and Egypt.

First the Little Horn waxes great toward the east, south and the pleasant land. In recent months Turkey has been calling on Muslim nations to form what I will call a union. If he succeeds it could be said that he has waxed great toward Iran, Egypt and Syria and Palestine.

Second he rises up among the 10 horns of the EU. For several years Turkey has been trying very hard to be accepted as a full member of the EU and if he does will be the first Muslim member. He will also have risen up among them as 'another Little Horn'. It should also be noted that he is the only country in the territories of the 4 generals who is even trying. 9 out of 10 of the existing members support his membership.

Now once he joins he must devour three of the former horns. This has been taught to mean that he forces himself on three members but what if he rather is supported by three members and is handed their support through intrigue and a silver tongue?

Watch and pray that you might be found worthy of that day.

Rev. 12 is being referred to:
7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. 12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

Whomever that man may be, he will certainly ride a political rocket to the top, somewhere. o_O

We know he will officially divide Israel. Daniel 11:36-41 is clear on that.

There are striking things about Europe, especially with the woman riding the beast in Revelation. Europe is named after Europa, who rode Zeus when he became a bull (a beast essentially), in mythology.

This is depicted on the 2 Euro Greece coin. The EU used to distribute a poster of the Tower of Babel. Look at the pictures of Europa and Zeus and the EU parliament building in Strasbourg, France. If I have time later I’ll add them to the thread if somebody hasn’t by the time I return much later this evening.

“But how do people get saved during the following period?”

I have heard it argued different ways by clergy I respect, but I tend to lean to the belief that there will be some who come to know Christ during those seven years and will gain understanding of what is happening, but that conversion Will result in persecution and even death.

By the way, so far you are lucky. Usually when a thread starts on the end-times or the Rapture - out come the doubters who are too eager to share their higher knowledge on us, or those who are so dead sure their scenario for the end-times is the only scenario they'll you call you a heretic if you differ with them. It gets ugly.

Daniel 9:26 speaks of the Messiah being cut off - a reference which has been generally taken to mean Jesus’ death for the sins of the world.

Isaiah 53:8 likewise speaks of the suffering Messiah being cut off from the land of life.

Yes, there will come a time when God kicks Satan out of Heaven permanently and he no longer has access to the Throne of God.

Some speculate that that happens right after the Church is raptured to Heaven.

No, another common error. Some think the Earth will “speed up”.

“Shortened” simply means it will not be allowed to complete. There are a couple of references that look like nuclear war, in 2nd Peter (if memory serves) and Ezekiel 38-39 (flesh stripped off the bone before the skeleton has time to fall to the ground).

By the end of the Great Tribulation, 1/2 of the world’s population will be dead.

Here is “shortened” which means their time was cut short.

Interesting set of conjectures and interpretations . . . to a point.

I don’t buy it.

I think the author is shoehorning into his notions a lot that just does not fit.

I remain utterly convinced that the

ABOMINATION THAT MAKES DESOLATE

is the AntiChrist setting up his image in the yet to be built 3rd Jewish Temple. . . . at the 3.5 year mark of the 7 year TRIBULATION period of the END TIMES.

Things are rushing toward Armageddon at a faster and faster pace.

There is no need to concoct unfitting notions together in jury-rigged constructions on END TIMES reailties. Such events will unfold in God’s time and that quite fast enough, thank you very much!

And, every detail of Scripture will be fulfilled to the letter without having to stretch conjectures to the point of breaking all reason and logic.

Yes, He was cut off. He did not reach a normal lifespan.

In this unique case, it was because He was to be the Sacrificial Lamb.

My problem is that if the Rapture is imminent, and the seven-year period can only start once it has happened, then that means that a Temple can be approved, built, and up-and-running in time for the AC to set up his image in it, all within three and a half years from now.

Lots of conjectures and calculations regarding years and months and Feast days etc. are interesting.

Some may turn out to be true. Most, probably won’t.

Things are happening in the prophetic schedule at a faster and faster clip.

And, I wouldn’t be all that surprised to find that the Rapture is a lot closer than many think. It may not be as close as some think.

Our task, imho, is to BE OVERCOMERS IN HIM regardless and to OCCUPY UNTIL HE COMES . . . to walk close to Him and be diligent about THE MASTER’S BUSINESS for HIS KINGDOM.

From What? Muslim Leader Wants Temple Rebuilt

Oktar added that the Temple of Solomon "will be rebuilt and all believers will worship there in tranquility." During his meeting with the Sanhedrin Rabbis, Oktar expressed his belief that the Temple could be rebuilt in one year:

""It could be done in a year at most. It could be built to the same perfection and beauty. The Torah says it was built in 13 years, if I remember correctly. It could be rebuilt in a year in its perfect form.""

My guess is that they would use something akin to pre-fab to get it up quickly.

You people refuse to learn from all of your prior confident assertions that turned out to be so much bovine feces. Your warped perspective on prophecy turns you into cheerleaders for the other team. God’s curse rested upon the faithless ten spies who saw only certain defeat for God’s people in the land of promise. In your assiduous efforts to demoralize God’s people and denigrate His power, you risk committing the same offense against His Kingdom, His glory, and His people.

Using God's Word as a ouija board to predict the future is an exercise in futility that only serves to make the gospel look fatuous, inane, and totally irrelevant.

For some reason, the fortune tellers who treat God's Word as a reeking heap of entrails, rather than as His instruction manual for "life, the universe, and everything," always seem to read the same message: brace yourself for the global triumph of evil! Whoopee! beak out the popcorn!

Hypothetically, if the Ez 38 war occurs as some think, prior to the rapture and the earthly return of the Lord (and perhaps prior to the 7yr agreement) - then a considerable portion of islam will have been hammered hard - giving temporary breathing room for a temple to be constructed.

Agreed. That’s just my guess. Going back to the timeline of construction thing...it took a little over a year to build the Empire State building. From what I’ve seen, it took 1 year and 45 days to build it. With the advancements in construction technology since then, it is not a wild idea to rebuild the temple in a year or less.

You are confusing GOD’s word of *Prophecy* for some New Age Fortune Telling...

What did Jesus say about Hypocrties and Signs of the times?

Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.” (II Pet. 3:3-4)

I read a book a year or so ago that contends Islam’s Mahdi will also be the AC. Muslims will embrace the Mahdi as their savior. Under Islamic theology, the world has to be in a state of chaos for the Mahdi to appear. We are moving toward that as we speak and there are world leaders who are actively working to those ends (i.e. Ammanutjob). If the Mahdi and the AC are indeed one in the same, then perhaps he could convince Muslims it is in their best interest to allow the reconstruction.

Well I agree with your title proposition to this extent--I think it is not impossible that the 7 year agreement has in fact been executed and that the term is in process. I would argue that there is some uncertainty where we are on the seven year time line since the word translated "confirm" may not mean "entered into".

I further agree strongly with your proposition that construction of a new Temple is not required before the sacrifical worship system can be resumed. That, however, has not happened yet.

You incorrectly identify the place of origin of the prince. 9:26 is translated by King James, "the people of the prince to come will destroy the city and the temple". The word translated "people" is the Hebrew word "yam" which has a literal dictionary definition--"tribal or ethnic group"; so properly translated, that phrase in 9:26 should say "the tribal or ethnic group of the prince to come will destroy . . . "

The identity of the tribal or ethnic group which destroyed the city and temple in 70 AD is of course clearly identified by a number of historical sources. Tacitus, in the Histories identifies them specifically as an army raised by levies on the local (Assyrian) kings. Roman discharge records of the Legions involved make it clear that with the exception of Titus (the 24 year old son of Flavus Titus Vespaisian, the emperor) and a few officers, there were no Western Europeans involved. Josephus describes a number of incidents that take place in connection with the destruction identifying the participants by name and the place of their origin--all come from identifiable historical areas in Assyria.

No doubt--the Prince is an Assyrian.

The fourth empire was located and governed in Western Europe only for a short part of its total history--as you recognize, for most of its history including the last thousand years, it was located in the Middle East with its capitol at Constantinople.

Now sure, the ten nations might have appeared in Western Europe but in the current context, that no longer appears likely for several reasons.

The eleventh horn, or nation, of Daniel 7:8 is "among" but "diverse from" (7:24) the ten nations.

I suggest to you that it is much more reasonable to look for the ten horns where the beast was last seen, particularly in light of a couple of other considerations.

For one thing, the Anti-Christ must be seen as "coming from out of Bethlehem where David was" which is not in Western Europe. And the Prince of Daniel 9:26, presumably the Anti-Christ, is an Assyrian.

Looking at the ten nations out of the Eastern Empire: Turkey, Israel, Syria, Jorden, Iraq, Saudia Arabia, Lebenon, Egypt, Kuwait, and Tunisia, there is today, an eleventh nation living among them which is ethnically diverse from the population of the nations. That nation has its own government, legislative body, judicial system, military, and the like and we call it the "Palestinians".

By the terms of the Interim Agreement (a seven year agreement by its terms, performance of which may not yet have comenced and which has not yet been discernably confirmed), seven nations on the West Bank were set over for Civil Administration to the Palestinian Authority (one of which cities is Bethlehem).

The Anti Christ ("I who come in the name of the father they have rejected but he who comes in his own name they will accept") must be a Jew. So we are not surprised to find a Jew in civil administration on the west bank in a position to be the head (one of the 7 heads of Revelation 13) of Bethlehem.

This individual is an ethnic Assyrian, born in the area south of Damascus in modern Syria to which Shalamaniser removed the tribe of Dan ("Dan thou art a viper") in 724 BC.

Indeed. This is a little off topic, but what are the chances that those scuds were originally owned by Iraq? IIRC, there were people who argued Sadaam sent his WMD’s to Syria prior to the ‘03 invasion. I know scuds don’t qualify as WMD’s, but it’s just a thought.

You have plowed with my heifer and unraveled my riddle?

Isn't it sad to see so many of God's people barking up the wrong trees, and setting themselves up as fortune tellers, turning red heifers into red herrings!

I have it on good authority the the newly formed Sanhedrin
has celebrated a Korban Pesach this past Pesach.

The first since 70 CE

An altar made from uncut stones is being assembled near Jericho.

It was dedicated this past Tisha B'av.

Tisha B'av was auspicious as it was the date of the destruction of the Temple in 70CE.

At some time in the near future the altar will be moved to the temple mount.

The first Korban Pesach was during the Exodus.

Yah'shua presented Himself as the Korban Pesach to cover our sins.

Look up ! Yah'shua is coming very soon !

In order for the Evil One
to end regular sacrifice
at the middle of the tribulation,
it must start;

Daniel 9: 26 "Then after the sixty-two weeks the Messiah will be cut off and have nothing, and the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. And its end will come with a flood; even to the end there will be war; desolations are determined.
27 "And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; and on the wing of abominations will come one who makes desolate, even until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who makes desolate."

Daniel 11: 31 "Forces from him will arise, desecrate the sanctuary fortress, and do away with the regular sacrifice. And they will set up the abomination of desolation.

Daniel 12: 9 He said, "Go your way, Daniel, for these words are concealed and sealed up until the end time.
10 "Many will be purged, purified and refined, but the wicked will act wickedly; and none of the wicked will understand, but those who have insight will understand.
11 "From the time that the regular sacrifice is abolished and the abomination of desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days.
12 "How blessed is he who keeps waiting and attains to the 1,335 days!

Regular Passover sacrifice will be restarting after 1940 years.

The Sanhedrin is planning to restart the sacrifice of Lambs at Passover this year.

See Korban Pesach

shalom b'SHEM Yah'shua HaMashiach
