JPost: Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has crossed the Rubicon and voiced “unprecedented” readiness to reach a peace deal with Israel, sources close to the efforts to renew talks between Israel and the Palestinians have told The Jerusalem Post.

Abbas, according to the sources, made this clear to President Donald Trump during their meeting at the White House last week. The president plans to use his trip to Israel later this month to receive assurances from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that he, too, is committed to a peace agreement.

Since his meeting with Trump last week, Abbas has changed his rhetoric, issuing a number of statements meant to reflect flexibility on previous demands. He has, for example, said that he would renew the talks under Trump’s auspices without preconditions. In the past, he had said he would not negotiate with Netanyahu without a freeze to settlement construction. more …

Opinion: Is this Daniel 9:27 in the process of fulfillment?

From our post March 13, 2017:

“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.”

“The prophecy is all about that deal except Daniel called it a covenant. The many is considered to mean Israel and her neighbors, and one week (Hebrew, shabua) is 7 years.

Therefore, the middle of the week is 3.5 years, and most Bible teachers agree that he, is Antichrist, who will bring an end to sacrifice and offering, meaning:

Animal sacrifice must have previously started. And since sacrifices and offerings can only be done in a temple, the Jews will have received permission to build the prophesied third temple, from he, Antichrist.

The wing of Abominations is a reference to a previous abomination of desolation that took place in 165 BC when Antiochus Epiphanes (mad man) slaughtered a pig in the Holy of Holies, which led to cleansing of the temple, and the feast of Hanukkah.”

There are gigantic problems with a Sunni/Israeli deal:

  • Iran/Shia proxies Bashar Assad, Hezbollah and Hamas will never agree
  • The Palestinian right of return of 5-13 million so called Arab refugees
  • The removal of ten’s of thousands of Jewish families from West Bank towns

And impossible questions to be answered:

  • What will happen with the US embassy?
  • Will a peace deal include a Jewish temple?
  • What will former Quartet members (UN, EU, Russia) have to say to Trump’s deal

Editor and I have been writing about this scenario for 6 years. I cannot recall any time when prophecy seemed so close.
