There have been rumors over the past month or so that another nation was getting closer to recognizing Israel after Bahrain did so.

Notice something going on between the USA and Sudan that may affect Israel:

Trump Announces Sudan’s Removal From Terror List, Paving Way For Israel Peace Deal

President Trump indicated via a Tweet Monday afternoon that he is removing Sudan from the official terror blacklist as the Arab League nation is inching closer toward normalizing ties with Israel.

The president indicated that Sudan, which has long been on the list based on allegations of providing covert support to Islamic militants that have carried out attacks on Americans, has agreed to set aside $335 million for payments for American victims of terrorism in the region. …

This means Sudan is likely to become the third Arab League member state to normalize ties with Israel, after the UAE and Bahrain inked historic, unprecedented agreements to establish peaceful diplomatic relations and economic cooperation.

The timing is also crucial, given that just weeks before the Nov.3 election, the White House could tout this as a major foreign policy win.

Talks between Sudan and Israel have been underway for some time, but full diplomatic recognition has recently been stalled after Sudan officials accused the US of threatening the country with remaining on the terrorism list if it didn’t accept the normalization deal with Israel. 10/19/20 https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/trump-announces-sudans-removal-terror-list-while-cusp-israel-peace-deal

But the mainstream media is not embracing this announcement:

How Trump’s Sudan gambit could backfire

On its face, President Trump’s new opening with Sudan looks like a diplomatic win. He announced Monday that his administration will remove the African nation from the U.S. list of state sponsors of terrorism, where Sudan has languished for 27 years. The delisting is undoubtedly good news for Sudan — the designation barred its government from international dollar transactions and curbed its ability to procure foreign investment, aid and loans.

Meanwhile, Trump now has another “America First”-style victory to tout at Thursday’s presidential debate. As part of the White House’s agreement with Khartoum, Sudan will pay some $335 million in restitution to the families of American victims of terrorist attacks targeting the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998 and the USS Cole in 2000. …

Trump and his allies expect the thaw with Sudan to eventually lead Khartoum to normalize relations with Israel. For months, diplomats have wrangled in private over when and how Sudan could join the handful of Arab states that have established formal contacts with the Israelis. One of those states, the United Arab Emirates, has played an outsized role both in helping broker the rapprochement between Khartoum and Washington and in cajoling the Sudanese down the path toward normalization.

The symbolism of such a move would be inescapable. In 1967, Khartoum played host to dignitaries of the Arab League who, in the aftermath of the Arab-Israeli War, announced the “three no’s” resolution — that is, no peace with Israel, no recognition of Israel and no negotiations with Israel. The situation shifted over the decades, but Sudan remained a conspicuous Israeli opponent and lent support to militant groups operating against it. …

Sudan’s civilian leaders would probably rather make a clear decision on Israel much later — possibly after the country holds elections in 2022. Yonatan Touval, senior foreign policy analyst at the Israeli Institute for Regional Foreign Policies, wrote in Haaretz that the Trump administration’s “bullying” of Sudan to normalize ties with Israel soon would probably embolden both the military, on the one hand, and Islamists, on the other. https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/2020/10/21/trump-sudan-hamdok-israel/

The main media in the USA is so opposed to Donald Trump that they try to look for something wrong in pretty much all he publicly says or does. While the media is not always wrong about Donald Trump, the bias, hypocrisy, and lack of interest in reporting the truth is not going to end well for the USA (cf. Isaiah 10:5-11).

Sudan, itself, has been becoming less militaristic over the past several years–and, despite issues, acquiesced to the departure of South Sudan.

Anyway, we will see if Sudan will truly embrace peace with Israel. After the UAE recognized Israel, the King of Bahrain did as well. Bahrain has faced opposition for this, but did it anyway (see Bahrain king’s peace with Israel opposed by Palestinians, Iranians, and Bahrain opposition).

Whether Sudan does or not, the Bible shows that a temporary peace will come to the region:

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).

The biblically-prophesied “prince” to confirm it will be a European leader who is the one who is later called the King of the North in Daniel 11:40. The ‘one week’ has generally been understood by prophecy watchers to mean a seven year deal, that is broken in the middle of it (after 3 1/2 years)–hence this is a temporary deal. The breaking of this deal is also confirmed in the following scripture:

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)

The “him” is the European King of the North.

The Bible shows that a confederation of mainly Arabic peoples, with some from other Muslim dominated lands, will get together.

They will be led by one that Daniel 11 calls the King of the South:

40 “At the time of the end the king of the South shall attack him; and the king of the North shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter the countries, overwhelm them, and pass through. 41 He shall also enter the Glorious Land, and many countries shall be overthrown; but these shall escape from his hand: Edom, Moab, and the prominent people of Ammon. 42 He shall stretch out his hand against the countries, and the land of Egypt shall not escape. 43 He shall have power over the treasures of gold and silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt; also the Libyans and Ethiopians shall follow at his heels. (Daniel 11:40-41)

Now, it should be noted that “Ethiopians” is a mistranslation. The Hebrew word is כשׁים, transliterated into our characters as “kushı̂ym.”

Barnes’ Notes on the Bible states:

Hebrew, Cushites – כשׁים kushı̂ym… The reference here, undoubtedly, is to the African Cush …

Notice also the following:

The word Cushi, also spelled Kushi (Hebrew: כושי‎) is a Hebrew term generally used to refer to a dark-skinned person usually of African descent. (Cushi, Wikipedia, accessed 12/15/15)

The late WCG evangelist Raymond McNair (who was also once part of GCG) wrote:

Daniel 11 also mentions some of the Mideast peoples who will be involved in that struggle among the nations at the close of this age. The belligerents will include the “King of the North,” the leader of the European Union (or its final outgrowth, called the “Beast”). The “King of the South” (an Islamic leader—apparently from Egypt {or} some other Muslim state) is also referred to. The following lands/peoples are specifically mentioned: Egypt, the Holy Land (Israel/Palestine), the Ethiopians (modern Cushites, south of Egypt), Libya, Edom, Moab and Ammon. Many descendants of the ancient peoples known as Edomites or Idumeans now live in the West Bank, Jordan, Iraq, Turkey, Syria, Arabia, Yemen, the Persian Gulf states, etc. (McNair R. Solving the Arab-Israeli Impasse! Copyright Raymond F. McNair 2005, Church of God—21st Century).

Notice that Raymond McNair realized that the term translated as Ethiopians really means the Cushite peoples. Sudan is a land basically south of Egypt–it is mainly Arabic, but with ‘Cushites’ as well. Others have said that the Cushites basically mean dark-skinned people, hence this could include peoples from Sudan, South Sudan (which is less Arabic than Sudan itself), Somalia (sometimes called Eastern Cushites), and many of the other Islam-dominated nations in Africa.

Ezekiel 30 also points to the coming King of the South. Notice some who are prophesied there to support that leader:

5 Cush and Put, Lydia and all Arabia, Libya and the people of the covenant land will fall by the sword along with Egypt.  (Ezekiel 30:5, NIV).

Hence, it looks like Sudan will one day support the coming King of the South–but will not do well for doing so.

The coming King of the South will not last in power very long.

Related to the UAE deal and some views posted about it, the Continuing Church of God (CCOG) put together the following video on our Bible News Prophecy YouTube channel:

UAE Deal: Peace in the Middle East?

On August 13, 2020, US President Donald Trump sent out a tweet over Twitter of something called the “Joint Statement of the United States, the State of Israel, and the United Arab Emirates;” it is also called the Abraham Accord(s). Many are excited about it as it is the first such deal between Israel and an Arab nation in 25 years. Others have denounced it as counter-productive. The United Arab Emirates has agreed essentially to recognize Israel if it does not proceed now with the annexations of Samaria, etc. it had planned. Although it is being hailed as a “historic peace deal,” a senior Palestinian official and negotiator named Saeb Erekat, said on August 14, 2020, “You are rewarding aggression. … You have destroyed, with this move, any possibility of peace between Palestinians and Israelis.” On the other hand, Breaking Israel News has suggested that this deal fulfills prophecies in Psalm 133:1 and Genesis 16:12 related to Ishmael and Jacob–is that true? Will peace come to the Middle East? Does Daniel 9:26-27 talk about a seven-year temporal peace deal coming to the Middle East? Will the prince, who becomes the King of the North, confirm this deal and break it after 3 1/2 years? How do we know that it is a European (a descendant from the peoples of the ancient Roman Empire) confirm it? Will most be deceived by false claims of a humanistic, Satanic, peace? Will many Christians not understand? Is the confirmation of a coming deal a countdown to the start of the Great Tribulation, the destruction of the USA (Daniel 11:39) and its Anglo-Saxon descended allies, as well as the destruction of a confederation of Middle Eastern and North African peoples led by one the Bible calls the King of the South (Daniel 11:40-43)? Will humans bring real peace or do we need the return of Jesus and the establishment of the millennial portion of the Kingdom of God to do that? Dr. Thiel addresses these issues and more.

Here is a link to our sermonette video: UAE Deal: Peace in the Middle East?

While it is nice that the UAE, Bahrain, and possibly Sudan are making steps towards peace, other scriptures tell of major military conflict coming to the Middle East.

Do not let temporary peace moves or declarations dissuade you from realizing that.
