Massive quake rattles western China; Quake in western China kills 400, buries more
Barack Obama, the US president, has admitted that Washington's power to influence stalled negotations between Israel and the Palestinians in limited.
Speaking to reporters after hosting a nuclear security summit on Tuesday, Obama said he had little hope for swift progress towards Middle East peace, more than a year after taking office and declaring it a high priority for his administration (Al Jazeera).
US President Barack Obama's declaration that he has limited power to force Israel or Palestine into a peace agreement is actually a page out of Bible prophecy. When peace does come, it is unlikely that it will be a forced peace. That's not to say Israel will be completely pleased with the outcome either. Israel has never been excited about peace because they know the true agenda of their enemies and that will never change. The only thing they can hope for is that any peace accord will be bolstered by an ironclad security agreement. This is exactly what the coming Antichrist will offer.
He will confirm this peace accord through lies and deceit by offering Israel ironclad security (Daniel 9:27). At this time, Israel has no peace partner including the United States, but when the rapture takes place and the man of sin is revealed, he will deceive them into trusting him (II Thessalonians 2:1-11).
At present, it's hard to see any other country playing the lead role in Middle East talks other than the US, but many believe the Bible points to the EU as their future peace partner. I have to agree! When the rapture takes place, this world will change forever and so will the US. Not only will they lose a sizeable portion of their population, but the remaining Hand of God will be taken off the US and replaced with a curse. Eventually, I believe that curse will be played out in full as the US takes on the life of Mystery Babylon as described in Revelation 17-18. In the end, the ten nation kingdom of the Antichrist will turn on them and completely destroy this once great country (Revelation 17:16).
In other news, another major earthquake has struck, this time in China. At last count, 400 are confirmed dead, with many more still buried, and at least 10,000 injured. The earthquake had a magnitude of 7.1 and it flattened virtually all every house in the area. But that's only the beginning of world natural disasters. India was struck by a cyclone that killed 89 and Iceland had a volcano erupt that sparked a swift evacuation.
Every month in 2010 has produced at least one major earthquake that has gripped this world. Are we living through what Jesus said would be a time of increasing earthquake activity (Matthew 24:7)? If so, the worst is yet to come!
