Arab League Wants Gaza ‘No Fly Zone’: A Prelude to Matthew 24?

The Arab League wants a “no fly zone” over Gaza:

Arab League to appeal for Gaza ‘no-fly zone’
AFP – April 10, 2011

Arab League chief Amr Mussa said on Sunday the organisation will ask the UN Security Council to impose a no-fly zone over Gaza, which Israel has pounded with air strikes in response to rocket fire.Mussa told an emergency meeting of Arab League ambassadors that “the Arab bloc in the United Nations has been directed to ask for the convention of the Security Council to stop the Israeli aggression on Gaza and impose a no-fly zone.”

Israeli and Palestinian officials were on Sunday floating a ceasefire to end fighting in the coastal strip…

As far as I can tell, the Arab League never asked Gaza for a “no rocket zone” before as those in Gaza have long sent rockets into the State of Israel in order to cause destruction and terror.

But the fact that the Arab League is trying to work with the United Nations and wants outside military involvement is reminiscent of Jesus word’s in Luke 21 and Matthew 24:

20 But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near. (Luke 21:20)

15 “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), 16 “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. (Matthew 24:15-17)

So the proposal by the Arab League seems consistent with the above.

Now the one who gets the abomination there is the final King of the North and is so identified as such in Daniel 11:31,40.  It is believed by most biblical scholars that when Jesus was referring to Jerusalem being surrounded by armies, He was referring to the same incident that Daniel wrote about above.

And while the Arab League plan is NOT the direct fulfillment of that prophecy, as a “no fly zone” is technically armies surrounding Jerusalem, this request seems to be helping to set the stage of these prophecies to be fulfilled.

The reality is that it is likely that the coming European power will cite outside plans (like those of the Arab League or even the USA’s) as part of its own justification when it does, in fact, surround Jerusalem with armies.  Daniel wrote:

31 And forces shall be mustered by him, and they shall defile the sanctuary fortress; then they shall take away the daily sacrifices, and place there the abomination of desolation. (Daniel 11:31)

World events continue to align with biblical prophecy.  The Arab League may not fully grasp the importance of its recent statements.
