He shall confirm a covenant with many for one week…
As “watchmen on the wall” we want to alert you to an upcoming comprehensive Arab-Israeli Peace Agreement. This Middle East peace initiative is the major End Times sign, and indicates the beginning of the 7 year Tribulation. It is the prophetic trip wire that is more critical than any other modern sign. Top diplomats from 20 countries will meet in Paris on June 3 to discuss preparations for a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians initiated by the French government.
This agreement will guarantee a two-state Israeli-Palestinian solution, with the conditions that the Palestinians end violence, act against “all those engaged in terror”, draw up a constitution, hold elections and the Israelis would stop settlement activities and act with military restraint.
In return, Arab countries will recognize Israel and her right to exist.
In a surprising twist that confirms Bible prophesy, the deal will most likely be forced by a land-for-peace deals and a land swap that includes a 7 year lease:
Can France Make Middle East Peace? / Project Syndicate, May 11, 2016
There is considerable regional and international agreement on what would count as a just solution: an independent state of Palestine, roughly around the 1967 borders, a resolution of the refugee problem, and an arrangement to share Jerusalem. Moreover, it is impossible for the negotiations to be seen as fair if Israel maintains its brutal occupation and continues to build settlements on Palestinian lands.
Pierre Vimont, the French special envoy, has been charged by his government with an enormous task, one that he cannot possibly accomplish on his own. He will need an earnest multilateral effort, clear timelines, a commitment to justice on all sides – and perhaps a miracle.
Turkish ambassador calls joining EU Ankara’s ‘strategic objective’ / Al-Monitor, May 18, 2016
Turkey considers the French initiative to reactivate the Middle East Peace Process very timely, as the developments on the ground point to the obvious fact that the Palestinian people and their country urgently need a solid prospective for a brighter future.
There is a deep sense of injustice due to the continued 49-year-long occupation of the Palestinian territories that in turn is exploited by the extremist groups for radicalization. The diminishing prospects for peace in Palestine also increase the tensions in the whole region. It is the historical duty of the international community to ensure that the State of Palestine has an independent and sovereign existence within the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital…Another aspect of Palestinian empowerment that we emphasize is the need to deepen the unity between the Palestinian groups. Turkey will continue all the efforts to support Palestinian national reconciliation.

Palestinian Leader Wants Time Cap for Any Talks With Israel / ABC News, May 29,2016
The Palestinian president said Saturday that if an upcoming Paris conference succeeds in relaunching the long-stalled Palestinian-Israeli negotiations, it should also set a time cap and mechanisms to implement their resolutions.
Speaking to Arab foreign ministers in Cairo, Mahmoud Abbas also said that the Paris gathering — due June 3 — should also set up a monitoring committee to follow whatever is agreed upon.
The Arab-Israeli Peace Initiative (or covenant) will be brokered by the “Beast” and signed one way or another, and it will revolve around an initial 7 year security agreement.
What does the Bible say about this?
” Seventy weeks are determined
For your people and for your holy city,
To finish the transgression,
To make an end of sins,
To make reconciliation for iniquity,
To bring in everlasting righteousness,
To seal up vision and prophecy,
And to anoint the Most Holy.
” Know therefore and understand,
That from the going forth of the command
To restore and build Jerusalem
Until Messiah the Prince,
There shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks;
The street shall be built again, and the wall,
Even in troublesome times.
” And after the sixty-two weeks
Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself;
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.
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.”
What does Daniel’s prophesy mean?
A total of 70 “weeks” are determined for “thy people”, Daniel’s people, the Jews.
The reason we know that the 70th “week” lasts 7 years is that the 7 “weeks” and 62 “weeks” (a total of 69 “weeks”), which have already happened, lasted exactly 483 years = 69 weeks X 7 years/week. The Messiah made His triumphant entry into the City of Jerusalem (Mathew 21:8) exactly 483 years after the commandment of Artaxerxes to rebuild the temple, March 14, 445 B.C. Subsequently He was “cutoff”, crucified as recorded in Daniel 9:26. Please note that He was crucified after the 7 weeks and the 62 weeks. That is, He was crucified after the 69th week.
Since God said he would deal with the Jews as a nation for 70 “weeks” and He promised to regather them nationally in the future in preparation for His Coming, then, God plans to deal with the nation Israel for 1 “week” before He returns.
We believe that this Peace Treaty will begin the dark one “week” or 7 year period called the Tribulation, and that this will start very shortly. The Rapture will occur before then.
What did Jesus Christ say about this “abomination of desolation”?
“Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes. But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath. For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.
For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
(1 Thessalonians 5:3)
We do not think it is a coincidence that the predicted “season” of the Lord’s return will also be the time of great distress on the Earth due to these catastrophic political events. The Lord knows that He needs to rescue His bride at this time.
I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. Behold, I stand at the door andknock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”
