In light of recent events, one must ask yourself if we are heading into the fullfilment of Daniels prophecies?
In an Israel Today article, titled :Kerry’s Peace Plan: Divide Jerusalem, Recognize Jewish State, a New York Times columnist, named Thomas Friedman, who has close ties to the Obama Administration, said that the American Secretary of State John Kerry is about to present a firm (forceful?) American proposal for peace between Israel and the Palestinians.
The Obama plan sees Israel withdrawing from Judea and Samaria in stages. Large Jewish settlements would be left intact and under Israeli sovereignty, and Israel would compensate by surrendering some of its territory to the Palestinian Authority. Jerusalem would be divided, and the eastern half recognized as the capital of “Palestine.” Speaking of recognition, Israel would be explicitly acknowledged as the nation state of the Jewish people. There would be no mass return of Palestinian refugees into Israel.
Israel in Prophecy has not been silent regarding the possible identity of Obama as the End of Days Tyrant whom the Jews call Armilus and the Christians call Antichrist, the Man of Sin. We have dedicated various articles to this topic and remain convinced that he is the end of days despot foretold in Daniel. This monster is destined to make a peace treaty with Israel which will catapult us into a world of calamity and despair. This treaty according to a careful reading of Daniel suggests that the so called Peace Treaty is actually forced upon Israel, which is exactly what is occurring now.
With recent saber rattling by Russia and the back-stabbing deal the US made with Iran, some believe that this could lead to the Biblical prophecy of Gog U Magog of Ezekiel.
And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog [the Russian Federation]…and prophesy against him, And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will…bring thee forth, and all thine army…. Persia [ancient kingdom of Iran], Ethiopia, and Libya with them.” (Ezekiel 38:1–5)
Although Gog invasion goes wrong for Iran, Russia, and their confederates (see Ezekiel 38:21), one cannot read this prophecy and fail to reflect upon the events of recent days involving Iran and its leaders, Russia and its leaders, and the current push by the president of the United States to force Israel into a false peace with the Palestinians, all the while while secretly negotiating a nuclear agreement with Iran (made public in late 2013).
The Obama regime, with Secretary of State John Kerry in the lead, joined with the international community in making an agreement with the Iranian regime that many view as a betrayal of Israel.
Israeli PM Netanyahu saw through these Machiavellian machinations, and harshly condemned the nuclear deal with Iran as a massive failure of [United States] foreign policy. “What was reached last night in Geneva is not a historic agreement, it is a historic mistake,” he said, before including: “Today the world became a much more dangerous place because the most dangerous regime in the world made a significant step in obtaining the most dangerous weapons in the world.”
We should not fail to take into account HaShem’s promise of safety for the Jewish nation mentioned in various places in the Tanakh. We should also know that while the Obama regime is trying to force this treaty on Israel, the Jewish people have powerful memories of those who have promised to exterminate them – Haman in the Book of Hadassah (Ester) the arch villian in ancient Persia, Nazi Germany in the past and Iran (Persia) today. Survival by any means necessary pervades their hearts at this stage in history.
Because of this resolve, some believe, just as in the days of Haman, Obama’s fait accompli (something that has happened and cannot be undone – just like the Persian law which condemned the Jewish captives) regarding conspiratorial deals with Israel’s enemies could result literally overnight in the war in Ezekiel.
In a speech before the 68th Session of the United Nations (2013), Prime Minister Netanyahu himself affirmed:
In our time the Biblical prophecies are being realized. As the prophet Amos said, they shall rebuild ruined cities and inhabit them. They shall plant vineyards and drink their wine. They shall till gardens and eat their fruit. And I will plant them upon their soil never to be uprooted again.
The stage is being set, the players are taking there positions. Will the Gog U Magog war ignite in our days? Only Hashem is in control of all the game pieces. Only He knows the outcome of these events.
