The Nations Are Seeking To ‘Impose’ A Peace Covenant Between Israel And Her Neighbors

Last weekend, when Iran unleashed its barrage of 350 drones and missiles against the Jewish State, maybe the most surprising aspect was that Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) supported Israel.

Let that sink in for a moment. All these nations are opposed to what Israel is doing in Gaza. They’re not friendly with Israel in every respect. However, these three nations supported Israel against an aggressive attack from the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Even Jordan took part in shooting down Iranian missiles. You could say, “These missiles were over their airspace. They would obviously shoot them down.” Well, years ago, they would have been glad to have any missiles flying over their airspace knowing the target was Israel.

Other Arab nations, like Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, provided valuable Intelligence to Israel about the timing of the attack. According to reports, Iran tipped off Saudi Arabia as to what it was doing and when it would do it. Saudi Arabia then secretly passed that information along to Israel to give them a heads-up for the timing of this attack—something that would have been unthinkable even just a few years ago.

What we’re witnessing today is more and more willing peace partners for Israel among these Arab neighbors. That is something that we have not seen since 1948, and it is a necessary precondition for the beginning of the Tribulation, where Antichrist will forge a peace agreement with Israel.

Daniel 9:27 says,
“he [Antichrist] will confirm [compel] a covenant with many for one ‘seven’ [seven years]. In the middle of the ‘seven’ [years] he will put an end to sacrifice and offering.”

The event that starts the seven-year Tribulation is this peace treaty that Antichrist makes and forges with Israel and its neighbors.

Revelation 6 tells us that the Tribulation begins when the rider on a white horse [Antichrist] rides forth after his diplomatic victory. After this, in Revelation 19, we have Jesus coming back to Earth on a white horse in victory. Revelation 6 is the beginning of the Tribulation when Antichrist rides forth on his white horse, “conquering and to conquer.”

It describes him as having a bow with no arrows indicating the start of his conquest is diplomatic—it’s a bloodless conquest—and he is going to make this peace agreement with Israel and her neighbors. That peace agreement is the precondition for the Tribulation period.

An ‘Imposed’ Peace

This week, Time magazine published an article titled “A Million Dollar Middle East Peace Plan.” It lays out a scenario for peace between Israel and its Middle East enemies that is chillingly similar to what the Bible predicts.

The author, Kai Bird, says, “This conflict is so dangerous that the time has come for the international community to impose a solution.” A compelled solution to the nations? That is precisely what Daniel 9:27 says, “He will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’”

Some take the idea of “confirming” to mean that he will simply strengthen an already existing covenant. But the idea of “confirming,” in Hebrew, means to “make strong.” He is going to make strong a covenant—or even “compel” a covenant.

The Time Magazine article insists that “the international community” needs to “impose a solution.” According to the author, they must “convene a Geneva peace conference” where all the essential parties will be forced to participate and “face financial and legal sanctions if they fail to show up.”

“A conversation will take place in which all parties are heard,” the author described. “But the American, European, and other international diplomats invited to Geneva will be responsible for the actual drafting of a peace treaty.”

So, nations other than Israel and their enemies will develop the peace treaty draft. It will be brokered by outside forces, which is also what Daniel 9:27 predicts.

The author concludes, “This will be an imposed peace because the global stakes are too high.”

The plan is to “impose peace” between Israel and the so-called Palestinians. That’s what the Bible predicts. It will be an imposed, compelled, or “take it or leave it” covenant that will be negotiated among the international community to force Israel to divide their land and give it to the Palestinians for whom it doesn’t belong.

A Flashing Red Light

The current crisis between Israel and Hamas, as well as Israel and Iran, is setting the stage for the coming Middle East peace.

All the ingredients for this Middle East peace are coalescing. We see a coalition of willing partners now for Israel. We see people calling for peace to be imposed by outside forces.

All the key threads are being woven together right before our eyes.

A possible escalating cycle of attacks will only serve to further prepare for Antichrist’s arrival and the coming time of Tribulation. What is happening right now is a flashing red light that the coming of Jesus Christ could be very soon.

Israel strikes back at Iran: Explosions rock airbase in city linked to Tehran’s nuke program as Netanyahu launches attack in defiance of Biden

Israel has conducted strikes in Iran in retaliation for Tehran’s unprecedented drone-and-missile assault earlier this week, defying Biden’s warning that more attacks could plunge the Middle East further into conflict.

The city of Isfahan in central Iran was struck at 5am local time, with Israeli projectiles reported to have targeted an Air Force base near Isfahan which long has been home to Iran’s fleet of American-made F-14 Tomcats – purchased before the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

US officials confirmed that Israel’s revenge for Iran’s 330 kamikaze drone and ballistic missile blitz had begun early this morning after days of threats.

Sources said an Israeli missile successfully hit the air base.

Iranian state TV launched into damage control claiming three drones were “destroyed” by its air defense batteries and no ground damage was caused.

The precision strike hit just next door to one of Iran’s nuclear sites, sources told the Jerusalem Post.

Blasts were also heard in Iraq and Syria in what appeared to be further hits on Iranian puppet terror groups across the Middle East.

The full scale of the surprise strike – launched just hours after Israeli sources said they would hold off their response – remains unclear.

Iranian media confirmed at least one explosion was heard in Qahjavaristan – just outside Isfahan near an airport and army air force HQ.

The army base is tied to Iran’s aircraft production – possibly where the attack drones it used against Israel are made.

Unconfirmed Twitter footage appeared to show explosions on the ground as air defense batteries fought off strikes in the sky.

A senior Iranian official said its military was not planning an immediate response to the attack, declaring it was “unclear who is behind it”.

Analysts said an Iranian counter-strike would be much more likely if TV reports had expressed outrage and showed pictures of damage.

The attack, which hit shortly after midnight, struck on Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s birthday.

Flights to Iran’s capital Tehran, Isfahan and Shiraz were grounded overnight.

A New Middle East

Arab Nations Openly Join Israel in Thwarting Iranian Missile Assault!

The Iranian missile attack in the early hours of Sunday morning publicly revealed the Middle East Air Defense Alliance (MEAD) for the first time. This defense partnership has the potential to significantly reshape the Middle East in the foreseeable future.

The Israeli aerial defense array made military history by thwarting 99% of an Iranian attack by shooting down around 170 drones, 30 cruise missiles, and a reported 115 out of 120 ballistic missiles.

The Israeli Air Force (IAF) received significant assistance from allied nations during the operation. In addition to the expected support from the United States, the United Kingdom, and France, the kingdoms of Jordan and Saudi Arabia also contributed.

In a historic move, these two Arab kingdoms not only issued statements of support but actively contributed to the defense of the Israeli homeland – an unprecedented move that has led some observers to evoke a phrase made famous by former Israeli Prime Minister and President Shimon Peres: A New Middle East.

While flying under the radar, the alliance has been in the making for almost a decade, preceding and possibly even laying the groundwork for the Abraham Accords peace treaties signed between Israel and several Arab states in 2020.

The rationale of the alliance between former enemies began to take shape as the Iranian regime increased the pace of its operations across the Middle East over the past two decades.

Already controlling Lebanon through its terror proxy Hezbollah, Iran used the turmoil caused by the Iraq War and the Syrian Civil War to ostensibly take control over both countries, before building up the Yemeni Houthi rebels, thus creating a thorn in the side of Saudi Arabia and projecting its malicious influence to the strategic Straits of Hormuz.

In the face of Iranian regional aggression, as well as its nuclear ambitions, the moderate Sunni countries in the region suddenly found themselves aligned with Israel against the Shiite Islamic Republic.

“It’s not a new idea. We are talking about an idea that started in 2015 under [former IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Gadi] Eisenkot. It was the first time that regional defense became part of our strategy,” Brig.-Gen. Zvika Haimovich, then-commander of Israel’s aerial defense array, told The Jerusalem Post.

According to Haimovich, the idea at first was to bring the U.S. assets based in Arab countries across the region into a common framework to “provide a big umbrella to supply early warning to Israel.”

In 2020, the Abraham Accords partner nations joined the framework to create “one operational net that would connect all the sensors and assets and build one synchronized picture that each country could use to protect themselves,” he added.

As we understand today, the Kingdom of Jordan, which made peace with Israel in 1994 and is known to cooperate closely on security, and Saudi Arabia, which was close to normalization with Israel just before last Oct. 7, joined this alliance, at least informally.

In March 2022, the commander of the U.S. CENTCOM convened a secret meeting in Egypt between military representatives from Israel and several Arab nations to discuss a coordinated response against Iran in the event of an attack, according to a Wall Street Journal report.

The loose partnership was based on the common threat of Iran’s drone and missile array and its proxies across the region, aiming to counter this threat by providing each other with early warning.

The seriousness of the issue was underlined by the 2019 attack on Saudi Aramco oil facilities via a combined drone and cruise missile strike launched by Iran and its Houthi militia, a strike that, looking back, should be seen as a harbinger of this week’s direct attack on Israel.

Last Sunday, the alliance passed its first serious test with flying colors, even if it reportedly required the U.S. to convince some nations to ignore Iranian threats against any country that would aid Israel during the assault.

Despite this, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates agreed to provide early intelligence, while Jordan opened its airspace to fighter jets from the U.S., the UK, and apparently even Israel, to intercept the projectiles.

The Royal Jordanian Air Force also took an active part in the effort by shooting down some drones by itself.

Hebrew news reports suggested that the Saudi Air Force could have intercepted some missiles being launched by the Houthis, as it had already done in the past.

While Saudi officials at first didn’t comment on the incident, on Monday an official told Israel’s KAN news outlet that “as a matter of sovereignty… every suspicious object that penetrates Saudi airspace is intercepted.”

Notably, the Saudi official also blamed Iran for “engineering” the Hamas Oct. 7 surprise invasion of Israel to derail normalization between Israel and Saudi Arabia.

Following the Iranian attack, IDF Chief of Staff Herzi Halevi thanked “all our international partners,” adding that “across the skies of the Middle East, a coalition was activated to counter this attack.”

Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant stated that the threat was repelled together with the U.S. “and other countries.”

“We have an opportunity to establish a strategic alliance against this grave threat by Iran which is threatening to mount nuclear explosives on these missiles, which could be an extremely grave threat,” Gallant added.

The success in foiling what might have been the largest missile and drone attack in history, amid the Gaza War, which until two weeks ago caused those same Arab nations to heavily criticize Israel, underlines the strength of the Abraham Accords and the defense alliance – even if for now, they are only based on shared interests rather than genuine friendship.

In a twist of fate, after numerous failed attempts at a two-state solution by left-wing Israeli governments, Israel’s right-wing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu brought about the Abraham Accords, while right-leaning commentators today excitedly discuss the future possibilities of a regional alliance.

As Channel 12’s chief political commentator Amit Segal described it: “There have been isolated occasions that this system has worked in the past, but yesterday we saw an unprecedented display at an international level – a new Middle East.”

Israeli War Cabinet preparing to order ‘forceful’ retaliatory strike on Iran – expected to make final decision today!

3/16/24 By Tim Buck

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his War Cabinet are leaning towards ordering the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) to launch a retaliatory strike against Iran in the coming days, according to Israel’s Channel 12 news.

A final decision has apparently not been made.

The War Cabinet is expected to convene again today.

But as war clouds form over the region, the stakes could not be higher.

This is a big decision.

The War Cabinet is signaling that they will probably order a strike on Iran, but leaking word of their deliberations so the Israeli public can begin to prepare, and so that foreign governments — including the White House — are aware of the cabinet’s thinking process.

After all, according to the New York Times, President Biden has insisted to Prime Minister Netanyahu and to the Israeli people that Israel should not retaliate.

Therefore, the War Cabinet is trying to walk carefully, knowing that a decision to retaliate would be going against Biden’s wishes.

I think Biden is wrong to insist that Israel refrains from retaliation. Perhaps he doesn’t want to see the Middle East escalate into some massive new war between Israel and Iran.

But where Biden is wrong is that Israel is already in a massive regional war with Iran.

Israel is already being attacked daily by Iranian terror proxies — Hamas in Gaza, Hezbollah in Lebanon, the Houthis in Yemen, and, of course, terror forces in Syria and Iraq.

Wishing for regional peace isn’t enough when Israel is already in a war that they never started.

Biden is wrong to appease Iran.

The Iranian regime only understands force and the attack on Saturday night and Sunday morning against Israel was unprecedented.

Never in the 76 year history of modern Israel has the Iranian government ever directly attacked Israeli territory but Iran just did so with 320 ballistic missiles, cruise missiles, and suicide drones.

The good news is that Israel, the United States, Britain, France, Jordan, and other Arab nations helped shoot down 99% of those missiles.

But that brazen attack by Iran cannot go unpunished.

Biden is making it clear he doesn’t want Israel to be drawn into a prolonged fight, but the question is: Is he tying Israel’s hands? That is, is he threatening behind the scenes to cut off all US aid, ammunition, and weapons resupply to Israel if they go to war with Iran?

I hope not. We should pray that that isn’t true.

Maybe Biden just doesn’t want Israel to retaliate, but would support them if they feel they must.

That’s the big question, and Israel’s War Cabinet is determined to take Biden’s concerns into consideration — but they’re inclined to retaliate one way or the other.

If there were ever a moment to launch a decisive attack to neutralize the Iran nuclear and ballistic missile threat, this would be the week.

Israeli and international airlines are preparing to shut down all operations in and out of Israel because they expect a larger missile war to erupt any day now.

And remember, it’s not just Iranian missiles that Israel has to worry about.

Hezbollah, the terror force that’s backed by Iran in Lebanon, has 150,000 missiles aimed at the tiny Jewish State. So, this thing could get big, it could get apocalyptic, it could get devastating very, very quickly.

But what choice does Israel have? As I said, they’re already in this war, and they can’t allow Iran to attack us without there being a Israeli reaction, and a strong reaction at that.

I don’t think the Israeli government would survive politically if it doesn’t show a strong retaliatory action against the Iranian regime.

The question is: When and how and then what?

We urge Christians all over the world to pray for the leaders of Israel to have the wisdom to know exactly the best way forward, and to be praying fervently and faithfully for the peace of Jerusalem.

Israel is preparing for an imminent direct attack from Iran; Tehran yet to decide, as Middle East remains on high alert!

Israel is preparing for a direct attack from Iran as soon as this weekend, according to a person familiar with reports. A person briefed by the Iranian leadership, however, said that while plans to attack are being discussed, no final decision has been made, says the Wall Street Journal today.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, speaking from an air base in southern Israel, also on Thursday, vowed to respond directly against any attack on Israel. “Whoever harms us, we will harm them. We are prepared to meet all of the security needs of the State of Israel, both defensively and offensively.”

“And it came to pass in process of time, that the children of Ammon made war against Israel.”
Judges 11:4

What a week it has been. If there’s a biblical phrase that best describes the Middle East over the last week, it’s “wars and rumors of wars”. From the attack in Syria that killed multiple high-level Iranian personnel to the looming war with Hezbollah in the north to the imminent invasion of the IDF into Rafah in the Gaza Strip, the tension has reached unprecedented levels. If that’s not enough, Israel is making preparations for a potential and imminent confrontation with Iran.

What’s worse is that the United States, has become unreliable during Israel’s darkest hour since the nation was reborn in 1948.

Genesis 12:3a
“I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses you…”

Joel 3:1-2
“For behold, in those days and at that time,
When I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem,
I will also gather all nations,
And bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat;
And I will enter into judgment with them there
On account of My people, My heritage Israel,
Whom they have scattered among the nations;
They have also divided up My land.”

Matthew 25:37-40
“Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’”

At the time of Christ’s Second Coming, He will not ask anyone if they stood up for America or any other nation.

The Lord will only ask if they stood up for Israel.

In these historic times the enemy has deceived the Biden administration and America will end up paying a huge price.

Standing with Israel is not an option from God; it’s a commandment from God.

 

Israel

The tension is at an all-time high inside Israel as the war in Gaza rages on. Israel continues to receive threats from Iran, and they’re receiving strikes almost daily from Hezbollah on their northern border. War with Hezbollah is on the horizon. However, the aim of the IDF and Israel’s government is to finish business in Gaza first – specifically, the city of Rafah, which is the final stronghold of Hamas. And yes, regardless of what the world media is telling you, Israel is going to enter into Rafah soon and finish the job. Attacks are already happening there.

Maybe you’re thinking, won’t this isolate Israel all the more if countries pull their support due to Israel not achieving a ceasefire? To this, my response is twofold: 1) Hamas has rejected every ceasefire proposal put forth. 2) While it’s a shock to live through these biblical times, God revealed ages ago that Israel would one day be isolated from the rest of the world so that only He will intervene on her behalf. The God of Israel will make good on His promises.

 

Gaza & Hamas

One of the biggest complaints coming out of the UN and the global community has to do with the alleged death toll of civilians in Gaza. First of all, war is ugly, but the IDF does everything it can to minimize and avoid civilian fatalities. And let’s not forget that Hamas uses its people as human shields. They have perfected the act of cowardice. Secondly, it surfaced in a report on Wednesday that the Hamas-run organization responsible for keeping track of the death toll in Gaza couldn’t validate over 1/3 of the alleged deaths. Over 11,000 of the 30,000+ deaths could not even be verified.

On Tuesday, it surfaced that an Israeli attack killed three sons of Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh and four of his grandchildren were killed. One would think there would be great mourning. This is not the case when you love death more than you value life. He thanked his nonexistent god for their martyrdoms.

The IDF continues to operate in multiple areas inside of Gaza at this time. Often, forces will temporarily remove themselves from some key locations, which causes the terrorists to come out of their holes, exposing them, leading to their elimination.

 

Lebanon, Syria, and Hezbollah

As mentioned, Israel can see a war with Hezbollah on the horizon – it’s only a matter of time. By God’s grace, Israel hasn’t had to deal with Hezbollah while they wrap things up in Gaza, which has allowed them time to move reinforcements up north and manufacture more ammunition and weapons.

 

Iran

In what’s not a surprise, the Islamic state of Iran continues to develop its nuclear program in pursuit of obtaining a nuclear weapon – something they’re no longer vague about. Iran also continues to strategically sow chaos in the Middle East through its proxies in the region. Furthermore, Israel is prepared to deal with a military confrontation with Iran any day now following the targeted killing of two Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) generals and five others associated with the terror organization. This happened when the Israel Defense Force (IDF) leveled an annex in Damascus, Syria, that belonged to the Iranian embassy. One of Iran’s personnel that was killed was in the decision-making circle for Hezbollah and played a crucial role in the planning of the October 7 massacre.

The Iranians know that if they attempt to attack Israel directly, their nuclear sites will enter the crosshairs of the IDF.

The United States

While periodic support for Israel is expressed from the US government, the current administration is flirting with a dangerous line concerning the jeopardizing of its relationship with Israel. Some of the more recent negative revelations coming out of the US include the decision to label products coming from “Jewish settlements in occupied West Bank”, increased pressure in the form of withholding aid if they don’t pursue a ceasefire in Gaza, and more. Commander of the US Central Command, General Michael E. Kurilla, is visiting Israel now to consult with top military officials in preparation for an attack from Iran.
