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 Summit. This international peace conference 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.
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.
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.
European foreign ministers endorse French ‘peace initiative’ / Debka, June 21, 2016
The foreign ministers of the European Union on Monday unanimously approved the French ‘peace initiative’ regarding Israel and the Palestinians. France’s top diplomat Jean-Marc Ayrault said during the meeting that France will set up working groups in July to formulate proposals for economic incentives for Israel and the Palestinians if they agree to participate in the process.

Foreign Affairs council offers economic incentives to jump-start Israeli-Palestinian talks; Israel slaps ‘unfortunate step’
The European Union on Monday proposed “concrete” incentives for Israelis and Palestinians to restart peace negotiations at a peace summit later this year in Paris.
During their monthly meeting in Brussels, the EU’s 28 foreign ministers tasked the European Commission and the EU’s External Action Service — its equivalent of a foreign ministry — to make a “concrete and substantial contribution” to international efforts seeking to revitalized the stalled Israeli-Palestinian peace process through a “global set of incentives” for both two parties.
Later this week, President Reuven Rivlin and and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas are scheduled to meet separately with EU foreign policy czar Federica Mogherini.
Inside the Herzog-Abbas agreement / Israel National News, June 20, 2016
Following revelations on Sunday of a secret letter of understanding between Zionist Union chief Isaac Herzog and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in which the two leaders outlined the parameters for a future Palestinian state, Efraim Sneh spoke with Arutz Sheva about the agreement – and what it could mean for Israel going forward.
‘Better a divided Jerusalem than a war-torn one’, says chief negotiator.
Sneh, a long-time Labor Party member, served as one of Herzog’s principle negotiators during talks with Abbas ahead of the 2015 Knesset election.
The framework agreed upon by the two parties includes the formation of a Palestinian state, which would encompass all of Judea and Samaria. Jerusalem would be divided in two, the eastern portion of which would serve as the capital of Palestine. Israel would also accept some refugees under the “right of return”.
The Old City of Jerusalem would also be divided, according to the outline, though as Sneh noted, Israel would retain the Western Wall.
“The most important thing is that the Western Wall remains under Israeli sovereignty. Eastern Jerusalem is divided, separating [predominantly] Israeli neighborhoods from [predominantly] Arab ones, which we don’t see as being part of Israel’s capital.”

“There are bonds of sympathy and empathy between Israel and Russia, with a common past that has tragic chapters for both peoples, but also a very strong willingness to grasp and develop the future and move forward in creating a better future,” Netanyahu said.
Israel is very important to Russia because it is one of the significant countries in the Middle East, Russia President Vladimir Putin told Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu when the two men sat down to talk in the Kremlin on Tuesday afternoon.
“We attach great importance to our contacts with Israel, not only because Israel is one of the key countries on the situation in the Middle East, but also due to historical relations between our countries,” Putin said.
“I am confident that your visit will be fruitful and will serve the cause of further strengthening our relations,” he added.
Western hostility is forcing Israel to make strange new friends / New York Post, June 18, 2016
Finally, Israel is repairing and enhancing relationships in the Middle East. In 2011, Turkey downgraded its ties following Israel’s raid on a flotilla trying to breach the naval blockade of Gaza. This month, Turkey’s foreign minister announced his country was one or two meetings away from normalizing the relationship again.
There is also much secret diplomacy between Israel and the Gulf monarchies. In the 1990s, Israel was allowed to open trade missions and begin contacts with Arab states because a process was in place to create a Palestinian state. During the second intifada of 2000-05, these openings closed. Now, Gold says, his diplomacy with the Arab states resembles the dynamics that created the predecessor of the European Union.
Livni: A referendum is needed now, to see if Israel is going in a two-state direction / Jerusalem Post, June 18, 2016
Zionist Union MK Livni called for a national referendum Saturday afternoon, to determine the progression of the Arab-Israeli conflict, a “problem” looming over the State of Israel for “nearly fifty years.”
“We need to know in which direction we’re going – two countries or one,” Livni said. “Without solving this problem, Israel will not be able to redeem itself as a Jewish and democratic nation.”

EU to back Mideast peace with ‘unprecedented’ support / ynet news, June 22, 2016
EU Council president says any peace deal between Palestinians and Israelis would be accompanied by huge package of political, economic and security support for both sides; ‘Lasting peace remains top priority.’
A top European Union official says the bloc stands ready to provide Israel and the Palestinians with massive political, economic and security support as part of any peace agreement between them.
European Council President Donald Tusk said Tuesday that the EU will “back up a peace deal with an unprecedented package of cooperation and support to both Israel and the future state of Palestine.”
Tusk said after talks in Brussels with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin, who is currently on a state visit in Brussles, that “a lasting peace in the region remains a top priority” for the EU.
EU hopes to arrange Rivlin-Abbas summit this week / Israel Hayom, June 22, 2016
President Reuven Rivlin may meet with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas this week as part of his visit to Belgium and the European Union headquarters. Abbas is also visiting Brussels this week, and high-ranking European officials, including European Parliament President Martin Schulz, are leading the efforts to arrange such a meeting.
The so-called “7 year cycle” has been referred to extensively by many in the financial community. The cycle started in 1973 and the economic indicators are unmistakable.
This tread led many analysts to predict a financial collapse starting around September 2015. Many experts state that the crash began in 2015 and is reaching a climax now. But, what if the cycle points to much more?
Note that many key events around these cycles had little to do with the global economy. Take a closer look at the list:
- The Supreme Court ruled in favor of abortion, leading to over 60,000,000 abortions
- The Arab oil embargo, when oil barons raised the oil prices and held the world hostage

When studying this cycle with a critical eye, we can see that many key historical events are happening during these dates, including the End Times factors we are focusing on. Some of the critical signs are pointing to the imminent Rapture of the Church include the fall of the global economy, leading to a one world government, the environmental “birth-pains” increase, as foretold by Jesus, and a comprehensive peace plan that allows the rebuilding of Jewish Temple. These 7 year cycle events point to the climax of these trends.
Right now we are witnessing a historic push for the Arab-Israeli Peace Agreement. The international peace summit will take place this year. It is the prophetic trip wire that is more critical than any other modern sign.
Interestingly, the next 7 year cycle would be from 2016 to 2023. This is also the 7th of 7 years = 49 total years. Could this be the final 7 Tribulation years?
