This article would be too long if I discussed all of the news that has taken place in the last few days that relates to Bible prophecy, so I am going to narrow it down to five things that seem very important.
First, Rapture Ready posted an excellent article by T.W. Tramm called “God’s Numerical Patterns: Israel’s 70th Year & Bible Prophecy.” (You can find it posted by going to raptureready.com, clicking on Rapture Ready News, and clicking on 12 Feb 2019 in the right margin.)
Many Christians don’t understand the importance of Bible numbers (and we have to be careful), but there is wide agreement that God is a mathematical God, and Bible numbers are significant (Google “Bible number 70”; Google “Bible number 40”; Google “Bible Number 7”; etc.).
This is the point: God measures time in several ways (1,000-days called Millennial Days; 50-year cycles called Jubilee Cycles; 70-year cycles, etc.), and all of these ways of measuring time are hitting on significant numbers right now.
The numbers appear to be saying that the world is reaching a significant point on God’s prophetic clock.
Second, at the same time that the significant numbers are converging, the prophetic signs are converging:
- The False Prophet will head up a world religion, and Pope Francis is making great strides toward unifying some of the religions.
- The Antichrist will head up a world government, and globalists in the U.S. want a world government so bad they are trying to topple Pres. Trump.
- The Tribulation Period will begin when the Antichrist confirms a covenant for seven years of peace in the Middle East, and Pres. Trump plans to release a peace proposal for peace in the Middle East later this year.
- The Bible prohibits the division of Israel and Jerusalem, and there are reports that Pres. Trump’s peace proposal will divide Israel and Jerusalem.
- There will be a global economic collapse after the Rapture, and the U.S. debt just passed $22 trillion.
- The Antichrist and False Prophet will track all buying and selling during the Tribulation Period, and the technology to do that was discussed at The World Government Summit earlier this month, etc.
Third, there have been many proposals for peace in the Middle East, but, at the time they were presented, all of the numbers and signs were not converging.
Pres. Trump’s peace proposal appears to be the first peace proposal to be presented at the same time that all the numbers and signs are converging.
It has been slightly more than 70 years (perhaps one generation) since Israel became a nation, and all previous peace proposals were before Israel’s 70th anniversary.
Fourth, the Tribulation Period will begin after the Rapture when the Antichrist confirms a peace treaty with many for seven years of peace in the Middle East (Dan. 9:27).
When the Antichrist confirms that treaty with many, world leaders will declare “peace and safety” (some people say “peace and security”). “Peace and safety” and “peace and security” are the same thing); and then sudden destruction will come (I Thess. 5:1-3).
Up until now, the Iranians and Palestinians have tried to thwart a peace treaty, and the Arabs have refused to negotiate a peace treaty until Israel meets Palestinian demands.
On Feb. 13-14, 2019, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, U.S. Sec. of State Mike Pompeo and Pres. Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner met in Warsaw, Poland, with officials from about 60 nations “To Promote A Future Of Peace And Security In The Middle East.”
With Israel’s Prime Min. Netanyahu and officials from 10 Arab nations present, Mr. Kushner told the group that Pres. Trump’s plan is finished, it will be released after the elections in Israel on April 9, 2019, and, although it is a long shot, he is optimistic about its chances of getting approved.
Significant decisions coming out of this conference to promote peace and security in the Middle East are that Iran will be dealt with and Palestinian demands will no longer prevent the Arabs and Israel from being friends so that peace and security can prevail in the Middle East.
Pictures were taken and published with many leaders (including Mike Pence, Mike Pompeo, Jared Kushner, Benjamin Netanyahu and others) standing in front of a large sign that read “Ministerial To Promote A Future of Peace and Security in the Middle East.”
It is difficult to see how God can make things any clearer than pictures of many officials standing in front of a sign that has the words “Peace and security in the Middle East.”
Fifth, Israel’s Prime Min. Netanyahu told the group that Iran is capable of producing nuclear weapons within two years, if Iran decides to do it.
He was very clear about the possibility of a war with Iran and the possibility that Israel and the Arab nations will be partners; and the two-year number indicates that it might not be long before something happens.
