JPost: “President elect-Donald Trump wasted no time placing the Israeli-Palestinian conflict high on his foreign policy agenda, telling The Wall Street Journal on Friday that he hopes to end the conflict after taking office in January.
“That’s the ultimate deal,” said Trump. “As a deal maker, I’d like to do … the deal that can’t be made. And to do it for humanity’s sake. He referred to the conflict as the “war that never ends.”
Opinion: Every president has tried. All have failed. One man will succeed at the ultimate deal. But is it Donald J. Trump?
The best place for clues is the Book of Daniel. Here are three:
1. “… And the people of the prince who is to come Shall destroy the city and the sanctuary …” (Dan. 9:26)
The Roman General Titus destroyed the city (Jerusalem) and the sanctuary (Temple) in 70 AD, indicating the prince (Antichrist) who is to come will be from somewhere inside the vast Roman Empire.
Donald Trump’s grandparents anglicized their name from Drumpf. His grandfather Friedrich and grandmother Elisabeth were born in Germany and emigrated to the United States meaning he has roots in the Roman Empire – positive
2. He shall regard neither the God of his fathers nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all” (Dan 11:37)
Donald Trump has been married three times and has been a known womanizer for as long as he has been in the public eye making that – negative
3. “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 …” (Dan. 9:27).
Donald Trump, like every president before him, has wanted to make a peace deal in Israel – neutral
Confirming a covenant (peace treaty) gives us a clue that the treaty is already be in existence. In the middle of the week (Week in Hebrew is 7 years) Antichrist will put an end to animal sacrifice, meaning it had to start at the beginning of the seven years when Antichrist allows the third temple to be built.
The Oslo Accords began in 1993 as a land for peace deal. Oslo was supposed to be concluded by September 13, 2000 a period of exactly seven years.
Is Donald J. Trump Antichrist? There is no way to know at this point and as Christians it really won’t matter since we won’t be here anyway.
(Animal sacrifice/tribulation period is a return to the last 7 years of the law (Daniel 9:25-26). Christians are of the dispensation of grace, not law, indicating the church will have to be gone before animal sacrifices begin – see Bible Prophecy 101 chapter 3 (Dispensational Theology) and chapter 5 “The 70 Weeks of Daniel” on the home page)
