US wants agreement now, peace later; To be implemented within 10 years
The Obama administration plans to present Israel and the Palestinian Authority with a new outline aimed at ending the Middle East conflict.
The Yedioth Ahronoth daily has learned that the Americans will pressure the parties to sign a framework agreement for a permanent settlement within one year, but that the agreement itself would be implemented within 10 years (Ynetnews.com).
When direct peace talks begin next Thursday, reports indicate that US President Barack Obama will take a personal hands on approach. He also plans on visiting both Israel and the Palestinian Authority.
A prophetic red flag was raised in this latest develop. Apparently, the goal of the talks is to achieve a signed peace accord first and implement the details over time. Right now, the timeframe for a full implementation of peace is within ten years. The Bible says, in the last days, Israel would sign a peace accord with the Antichrist and many nations that would be implemented over a timeframe of seven years (Daniel 9:27). Certainly, at some point, I believe both sides will settle on a seven-year time limit.
Another thing that should be mentioned. Neither party has a real desire to be at these talks, much less agree to peace. They're only there because the US is demanding that they be there. Here's how the Jerusalem Post writer, Herb Keinon, describes the arrangement:
a wedding arranged by parents, where neither the bride nor the groom wants to
get married to the other, but both reluctantly agree to stand under the huppa
only because their parents – upon whom they are both still very much dependent
– demand it.
Now you get the picture as Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, who live 15 minutes from each other, get ready to travel 10,000 kilometers to their “daddy’s home” at the White House to meet and have a wedding neither has convinced his acquaintances he really wants. Both – through close friends – have also indicated they don’t really think will it work out at all (Jpost.com).
In Daniel 9:27, it states that the future Antichrist will "confirm" (make strong) a "covenant with many for one week" (seven years). I interpret this to mean that the Antichrist will make the parties involved to adhere to the peace covenant by force if necessary. This seems to be the direction for which these talks are heading.
Here is a summary of the direction the US expects the talks to take over the next twelve months:
According to the American plan, the Israeli and Palestinian negotiation teams would hold hectic talks in a bid to reach a framework agreement within a year. The intensive talks would be held in isolated sites, so as to allow the teams to calmly discuss the core issues of the permanent agreement: Jerusalem's future, the borders, the settlements and the refugees.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas would be required to hold frequent meetings in order to solve concrete problems and advance the negotiations' stages.
If the talks reach a deadlock, American officials would intervene and attempt to bridge between the sides. In addition, the US would try to convince the Arab states to offer goodwill gestures to Israel and influence the Palestinians to compromise.
The framework agreement aimed at ending the conflict would be signed within a year. From that moment on, the agreement would be implemented gradually over a period of several years. (Ynetnews.com)
This plan sounds very close to what Bible prophecy experts have said would happen all along. Who it turns out to be that finally implements it and brings about Middle East peace will be decided in the future.
Are you ready to meet the Lord? If not, your time is running out!
