1 Thessalonians 5:3 While they are saying, “Peace and safety!” then destruction will come upon them suddenly like labor pains upon a woman with child, and they will not escape.

On June 3, 2016 representatives from the Middle East Quartet, the UN, Arab League and 20+ nations participated in peace discussions in Paris, France. The two parties (Israel and Palestinians) looking to achieve peace were not invited.

The Palestinians were in support of the talks. Israel opposed the discussions. Israel believes the two sides need to meet face to face.

Commentary indicated that “hopes for peace are in serious danger”.

“We must act urgently.”

There was consensus that Israel was to blame because of their settlements in disputed lands.

In the end it was agreed that further discussions would focus on the 2002 Saudi Peace Initiative. This includes Arab recognition of Israel. As a result, a Palestinian state would be established in territories occupied by Israel since 1967.

There were agreements to meet again during the summer of 2016.

Effectively, there was a lot of talking and dire language.

On June 6-7, 2016, Prime Minister Netanyahu made a two day trip to Moscow to meet with Vladimir Putin. The two leaders agree they have a common ground against terrorism. Putin states, “Relations with Israel are deep.” Some suggest Israel is trying to have Russia take the lead of peace negotiations and avoid the French led peace plan.

We know the following about the future peace treaty. There will be a 10 nation or leadership committee. Three of the original ten will be displaced by an evil one (Daniel 7:7-8, 20, 24). The deal will be brokered by a really evil guy, the antichrist. It will be an encompassing treaty with Israel and many others. The length of the treaty will be seven years (Daniel 9:27).

There are pieces of this covenant on the table with current negotiations in June 2016. The Arab recognition of Israel would involve 57 Arab nations. The Oslo Accord under President Clinton was a treaty for the length of seven years. Now if the current group of close to 30 gets whittled down to 10… By the way, we still a need a Temple.

As the Bible states in 1 Thessalonians 5:13, the time to get nervous is when everyone seems to think we are going to have peace.

While they are saying, “Peace and safety!” then destruction will come upon them suddenly like labor pains upon a woman with child, and they will not escape.

Trend Update: Peace, Peace, Peace! June 2016

Daniel 9:27 And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; and on the wing of abominations will come one who makes desolate, even until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who makes desolate.

This is the definitive statement indicating the start of the Tribulation. The verse in Daniel is what Jesus quotes in His Olivet Discourse.  Matthew 24:15 So when you see the abomination of desolation – spoken about by Daniel the prophet – standing in the holy place (let the reader understand).

The “he” is the antichrist. As of June 2016, “he” is not on the scene and “he” has not made peace. Humanity is still fighting wars.

And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week…The Hebrew word for “he will make firm” is gabar. The grammar states the antichrist is the cause and he has the strength to make it happen.

The Hebrew word for “covenant” is bariyth. It means: covenant, alliance, pledge between men; treaty, league (man to man).

The length of the treaty is “one week” or echad shabuwa` in the Hebrew. It means: period of seven (days or years), heptad, week.

Definitions are provided by Strong’s Concordance.

As of June 2016, there is a push for peace in the Middle East. There appears to be multiple peace plans on the table.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is urging the Knesset to join the push for peace. He is looking at elements of the Arab Peace Initiative. A key element of the plan provides for Israel’s full diplomatic ties with 57 Arab and Muslim states after a peace accord with the Palestinians. The plan was developed by Saudi Arabia and approved by the Arab League 14 years ago.

Egypt is looking to broker peace between the Arabs, Palestinians, and Israel.

Even former Israeli soldiers have a plan for peace with the Palestinians and Arabs.

On June 3, 2016, France is hosting a peace conference. It includes the Middle East Quartet: the United States, Russia, the European Union and the United Nations – the Arab League, the U.N. Security Council and about 20 countries. Seems like a rather large “quartet”.

Israel and the Palestinians have not been invited to French peace conference.
