Middle East Peace Talks to Begin



“Peace talks” between the Palestians and Israelis are expected to begin in less than two weeks:

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon urged Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas not to “waste”  the chance for peace constituted by upcoming talks between Israel and the Palestinians in Washington, AFP reported…

Clinton said she had invited Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to Washington on September 2 “to re-launch direct negotiations to resolve all final status issues, which we believe can be completed within one year.”

She acknowledged that the goal would be a challenging one. http://www.jpost.com/Israel/Article.aspx?id=185505

A “peace deal” could come about by next Fall or perhaps the one past it.  But probably not as Mrs. Clinton currently hopes.  Any deal prior to the one in Daniel 9:27 will ultimately be overridden.

Ultimately, and probably after more armed conflict involving Israel (and likely Iran), a “comprehensive” peace treaty will be agreed to for the area by a rising European leader (probably with USA involvement).

Notice that in the book of Daniel there is a prophecy related to the end times that states:

26 And the people of the prince who is to come
Shall destroy the city and the sanctuary.
The end of it shall be with a flood,
And till the end of the war desolations are determined.
27 Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week;
But in the middle of the week
He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering.
And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate,
Even until the consummation, which is determined,
Is poured out on the desolate (Daniel 9:26-27).

There are several reasons that this “prince” is referring to the leader of the developing European empire (see King of the North and Europa, the Beast, and the Book of Revelation).

But perhaps the main one is that it was the people of the Roman Empire of the 1st century that fulfilled the portion of Daniel 9:26 as they destroyed the city (Jerusalem) in 70 A.D. And it is the “prince” coming from that people that verse 27 is referring to. Hence, this prophecy tells us that a leader will start to rise up about 3 1/2 years before the great tribulation (and yes, according to Jesus, some “tribulation” does happen prior to the start of the Great Tribulation), when he (the European leader) violates terms of the deal (cf. Daniel 11:31).

So while current peace talks are of interest, the peace deal that will happen per Daniel 9:27 will ultimately result in changes that those in Israel will not care for.

More details about Daniel 9:26-27 are contained in the article:

Can the Great Tribulation Begin in 2010, 2011, or 2012? Can the Great Tribulation begin today? What happens before the Great Tribulation in the “beginning of sorrows”? What happens in the Great Tribulation and the Day of the Lord? When is the earliest that the Great Tribulation can begin? What is the Day of the Lord?
Why is a Jewish Temple in Jerusalem Not Required? Although people like Timothy LaHaye teach a third Jewish temple is required, who is ‘the temple of God” in the New Testament? Does the Bible require a rebuilt Jewish Temple?
