JPost: The retreat of the United States from the world stage could doom the Abraham Accords, former US ambassador to Israel David Friedman told The Jerusalem Post Annual Conference on Tuesday, in a warning to the Biden administration.
“This won’t work if America retreats from the world stage and fails to project its values in the region,” said Friedman as he spoke with the paper’s senior contributing editor and diplomatic correspondent Lahav Harkov at Jerusalem’s Museum of Tolerance.
He spoke of the deal brokered by the former Trump administration under whose rubric Israel normalized ties with four Arab countries: the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Morocco and Sudan.
As a Trump administration envoy in the region, Friedman was a part of the process from its infancy. On Monday, he launched the Friedman Center for Peace through Strength to help continue to advance the accords. Read More HERE ….
Opinion: David Friedman is a religious Jew. I wonder how he explains Daniel 9:27?
“Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week;
But in the middle of the week …
You see, he, Antichrist, will confirm (not create) a peace with Israel and her neighbors for 1 week (Hebrew – 7 years), meaning the current Abraham Accords need to be in place when the final 7 year tribulation begins. Keep in mind Oslo was a 7 year peace treaty that failed under Yasser Arafat, Bill Clinton, and Yitzhak Rabin, but could be redrafted.
“He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering.
And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate …”
Daniel further teaches that Antichrist will bring an end to sacrifice and offering, meaning he will have allowed the Jews to build a temple and re-institute animal sacrifice confirming that Daniel’s 70th week has commenced. When Antichrist cancels the sacrifice, the abomination will begin as the world leader stands in the temple and declares war on the Jews.
It is at that point that Jesus, in Matthew 24:15-16, instructs the Jews of a future day to flee to the mountains. Those mountains are filled with caves that the Nabateans unknowingly prepared for this occasion in approx. 500 BC.
And now for the finale.
In Daniel 11:40-45 we find the great battle of Armageddon.
- Daniel 11:40 – The king of the South and the King of the North attack Antichrist
- Daniel 11:42 – Antichrist enters Israel but all of Jordan is spared. The Jews will be hiding in southern Jordan, called Edom, former home of Esau now called Mt. Seir/Petra.
- Daniel 9: 43 – Antichrist will have acquired great power and wealth
- Daniel 9:44 – News of the Kings of the East troubles him as the war reaches its zenith
- Daniel 9:45 – Antichrist is defeated quietly
Isaiah 63:1-3 Jesus returns first to Edom to save His Covenant people.
