I mentioned in No. 3. that Israel had to be back in their own land before the End Times could really begin. That happened in 1948. In No. 5. I mentioned that the world would be desperately seeking peace. The No 1 item on the world’s agenda today is peace!. In No. 6. I said that the possession of Jerusalem would become a source of International conflict. Today the Palestinians demand East Jerusalem be the capital of a new Palestinian State, or no peace.
Listen to what God says. Joel 3:1&2 ‘In those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will enter into judgment against them concerning my inheritance, my people Israel, for they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land.
The following statement was reported tonight on SBS World News. “The European Union’s top diplomat has called for the United Nations Security Council to push forward and recognize a Palestinian state even without a final-status agreement between Israel and the Palestinians. After a fixed deadline, a UN Security Council resolution should proclaim the adoption of the two-state solution,” Solana was quoted as saying, adding that “such a move should include resolutions regarding borders, the refugee problem, the issue of Jerusalem and security arrangements. It would accept the Palestinian state as a full member of the UN, and set a calendar for implementation.”
The world is closing in on Israel, and it is happening rapidly. No matter what end times view you hold, it is clear that the Lord’s return is getting very close. Luke 12:40 You must be ready all the time, for the Son of Man will come when least expected.”
