Any Bible prophecy student worth their salt knows by heart Daniel 9:24-27. It’s the foundation verse for the future seven- year peace treaty between Israel and 10 nations–five nations from the western leg of Daniel’s image (Rome or Europe) and five from the eastern leg of Daniel’s image (Istanbul/Middle East).
And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week (7 years). Dan. 9:27
This treaty, we believe, is consummated just after the Rapture of the Church and begins the seven-year period of Tribulation when God goes back to dealing with the Jews as His chosen people.
Well, shocker of all shockers read this headline in an Israeli newspaper last week:
Israel Wants Five Years of Quiet – Attila Somfalvi
(3rd paragraph down)
Asked about what Israelis should expect after a Gaza ceasefire, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Tuesday: “I estimate that we will get a lasting calm. We spoke with our colleagues around the world and explained that we want lasting quiet – not for a week, not for two weeks. After a week of suffering, (we want) at least five or six years of quiet, stability and security.”
(Ynet News http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4309430,00.html )
Israel wants five or six years of peace? That’s pretty close to seven years of peace!
The fact that they are even talking about a peace treaty with a length of time anywhere near seven years is astonishing–considering the prophecy was written over 2500 years ago!!!
Consider these other prophecies already fulfilled in my lifetime regarding Israel and the Jews:
> The Jews would be scattered over the world and return to their homeland after about 2000 years.
Is 11:11-12; Hos 6:1-2
(They were and they did!)
> The Jews would not lose their identity–they would remain a pure race during their exile and return as a pure race. Rev 7:4
> When they returned, the Jews would take over their land to begin in one day. Is 66:8
> When the Jews come back into their land, they will not have the Spirit of God in them. Ezek 37:8
> The Jews would come back into their land and have a mighty army. Ezek 37:10
> Israel will have atomic weapons. Zech 14:12
> Israel, a very small nation, would be a problematic country burdening the entire world. Zech 12:3
When you think about it, God used the Jews to provide the world with the patriarchs, prophets, apostles, Bible and even our Savior. John 4:22; Is 44:1
So keep your eyes on Israel–they’re God’s focus in the next dispensation and He’s getting them ready!
What an exciting time to be alive!!!!!

80 percent of Palestinians come from the lost tribes of Israel.. and they are the first decedents of Christianity.. God has not forgotten the suffering of the palestinians… you can love Israel.. but Jesus taught you love everyone.. not ignore your brothers and sisters in christ..
Amen Andy! I’m sure you’ve seen my posts here on prayer for everyone…that Palestinians and ALL people who do not know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior will come to Jesus before it is too late. Those who do not know Jesus Christ, Jew, Arab, Palestinian, American, Australian, African..doesn’t matter, will not spend eternity in heaven with the Lord. However, we are told in the Bible to honor Israel because Israel as a people and as a nation is God’s firstborn. In a sense, Andy, you could say, we are all from Israel originally because life started with Adam and Eve, probably somewhere where present day Iraq is…no one knows for sure.. but since all of us came from Adam and Eve, we are all descendants of the Middle East… No one here is preaching to ‘only’ love Israel..but all people. However, we have a special honor for God’s firstborn. Thanks for you comment, and God bless you!
interesting– I always thought the Rapture would happen right *after* the peace treaty…
No peace treaty has been signed yet. They’re talking about..just something interesting. There will be a great war (probably what Iran is stocking up Hamas for) and then one will come to offer a peace treaty to Israel.and they will sign it..this will be the Anitchrist.
For he will come as a thief in the night for his first harvest. For readers who do not know, you must ask God to forgive you and have the belief in your heart that Jesus came to the earth and died for the sins of the world and to give everyone a chance to be with him. You must also be baptised as proof of your convenient to God. If you worry about your forgiveness please contact one of us now before you are left alone to face the tribulations.
Amen Dennis. Amen. Let us not forget, though, that although he comes as a thief in the night, those who belong to Him will know the hour is near..we will know the season. Those who do not know the Lord..for them it will be unexpected.
1 Thes 5:1-11 “But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. 2 For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. 3 For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. 4 But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. 5 You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. 6 Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober. 7 For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night. 8 But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation. 9 For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.
11 Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing.
God bless you and thank you so much for your thoughts, and for giving your heart to those who might stumble upon this and see your comment. 😉
