The Times of Israel: Defense Minister Benny Gantz signed a memorandum of understanding with his Bahraini counterpart on Thursday, formalizing the security relationship after the Gulf country normalized ties with Israel a year and a half ago.
Following the signing, the defense minister met with Bahraini Crown Prince and Prime Minister Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa and then with King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa.
According to Gantz’s office, the memorandum of understanding “will help advance intelligence cooperation, a framework for exercises, and cooperation between the countries’ defense industries.”
It is only Israel’s second memorandum of understanding with an Arab nation, the first being with Morocco, which Gantz signed late last year.
Gantz signed the agreement with Bahraini Defense Minister Abdullah Bin Hassan Al Nuaimi, alongside Commander-in-Chief of the Bahrain Defence Force Khalifa bin Ahmed Al Khalifa, at the Bahraini Defense Ministry headquarters in Manama. Read More …
Opinion: “I heard, but I did not understand. So I asked, “My lord, what will the outcome of all this be?” He replied, “Go your way, Daniel, because the words are rolled up and sealed until the time of the end.” Daniel 12:8-9
Daniel was then an old man and yet there were many questions that would not be understood until the time of the end. The intent of this verse was to inform Daniel that as the end of the age approaches, Bible students will have a greater understanding of prophetic Scriptures. That is us.
The Abraham Accords:
It appears that any extension to the Abraham Accords, started by President Trump and PM Netanyahu are in Israel’s hands alone (for now). President Biden is forbidden by his leftist handlers to further anything either of the two leaders stood for.
Our Bible tells us, however, that there will be many more peace treaties that will prepare the way for Antichrist to confirm the peace, making himself a faux man of peace thereby usurping the title from Christ.
“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 …”
The small h, ‘he’, in the prophecy indicates Antichrist, who will confirm (not create) a 7 year (Hebrew week) peace with Israel and many (not all) nations.
After 3.5 years (middle of the week), Antichrist will bring an end to animal sacrifice indicating that the third temple will be in existence, since sacrifice and offering can only be performed in a temple.
When will these prophecies happen?
The Second Regathering of God’s people is in Belief of God the Father
“…then they shall know that I am the Lord their God, who sent them into captivity among the nations, but also brought them back to their land, and left none of them captive any longer.” Ezekiel 39:28
The scene is the end of the great war of Gog and Magog. A Russian alliance (Ezekiel 38:1-6) forms after Israel defeats her neighbors in the Psalm 83 war fulfilling Ezekiel 38:8
“After many days you will be called to arms. In future years you will invade a land that has recovered from war, whose people were gathered from many nations to the mountains of Israel, which had long been desolate. They had been brought out from the nations, and now all of them live in safety.”
Israel will have been abandoned by the nations, fulfilling Ezekiel 38:13 as the Russian alliance made up of Persia Iran, Gomer Turkey, and at least 4 North African nations (Cush Ethiopia, Somalia, Sudan and Put Libya) launch a 4-sided attack on the Jewish state.
With no nation coming to Israel’s side, the world will be convinced that the Jewish state will not survive. Ezekiel 38:18-21 will change everything:
“And it will come to pass at the same time, when Gog comes against the land of Israel,” says the Lord God, “that My fury will show in My face. 19 For in My jealousy and in the fire of My wrath I have spoken: ‘Surely in that day there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel, 20 so that the fish of the sea, the birds of the heavens, the beasts of the field, all creeping things that creep on the earth, and all men who are on the face of the earth shall shake at My presence. The mountains shall be thrown down, the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.’ 21 I will call for a sword against Gog throughout all My mountains,” says the Lord God. “Every man’s sword will be against his brother.”
God intervenes in the same way He did in Judges 7 and 2 Chronicles 20. As the Jews regather a second time, they will know that only Yahweh could have saved them from certain annihilation.
Our late friend and Bible teacher Jimmy DeYoung said this: Daniel 9:27 reveals that the antichrist will come to confirm these peace agreements. President Biden’s move to erase the Abraham Accords says that the stage is set for the Antichrist.
