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.

Antichrist, The Beast Rules 3 1/2 Years, Part 6

Posted in Antichrist/Beast, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , on February 22, 2015 by paulthepoke

Revelation 13:5 There was given to him a mouth speaking arrogant words and blasphemies, and authority to act for forty-two months was given to him.

How long will the beast or antichrist rule? Scripture makes it perfectly clear, 42 months…

In the original Greek it states: tessarakonta (40) kai (and) duo (two) men (months). Definitions provided by Strong’s Concordance.

Revelation 11:2 Leave out the court which is outside the temple and do not measure it, for it has been given to the nations; and they will tread underfoot the holy city for forty-two months.

The temple will need to be built and operational for the antichrist/beast to overtake. The gentiles or non-Jews will be in charge for the same time period, 42 months.

This same time period is restated elsewhere in Scripture.

Revelation 12:6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness where she had a place prepared by God, so that there she would be nourished for one thousand two hundred and sixty days. The woman is Israel and she is fleeing from the dragon or Satan. She is protected by God during this time period. God operates on a 30 day lunar calendar. 1,260 days divided by 30 days = 42 months.

Revelation 12:14 But the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, so that she could fly into the wilderness to her place, where she was nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.

… a time and times and half a time…This is another expression of marking 42 months. The Greek word for time is kairos. It means: due measure of time, hence: a fixed and definite time, the time when things are brought to crisis, the decisive epoch waited for, opportune or seasonable time, the right time, a limited period of time.

This expression is noted in Daniel 7:25. He will speak out against the Most High and wear down the saints of the Highest One, and he will intend to make alterations in times and in law; and they will be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time.

It is also in Daniel 12:7 I heard the man dressed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, as he raised his right hand and his left toward heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever that it would be for a time, times, and half a time; and as soon as they finish shattering the power of the holy people, all these events will be completed.

In the original Hebrew it states: mow`ed (time), mow`edim (times), chetsiy (half or middle). Time or mow`ed is defined: appointed place, appointed time, meeting, sacred season, set feast, appointed season; appointed sign or signal.

… a time and times and half a time… 1 + 2+ ½ = 3 1/2

In the last half of the seven year tribulation, all Hell will officially break out for…1,260 days = 42 months = time, times, and half a time = 3 ½ years… Take your pick.

Antichrist, The Beast, Part 3

Posted in Antichrist/Beast, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 1, 2015 by paulthepoke

Revelation 13:1 And the dragon stood on the sand of the seashore. Then I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads, and on his horns were ten diadems, and on his heads were blasphemous names.

This verse contains a hint. From where does the antichrist come? What is all of this business regarding horns and heads and diadems. The Bible gives an explanation for each of these terms. But, you have to look for it. The answers are given in the Old Testament and New Testament.

In the Bible, horns are equated with kings and leaders. This was the case in the writings of the Old Testament as well.

Daniel’s dream in Daniel 7 is consistent with the verses in Revelation 13 and 17. The language regarding beasts and horns is consistent. Revelation 13 does provide additional information regarding “heads” which will be discussed in the next post.

With Daniel’s dream, four beasts came up from the sea. Beasts are equated with kings and kingdoms (Daniel 7:17). The issue is the fourth beast. Daniel 7:7-8 After this I kept looking in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrifying and extremely strong; and it had large iron teeth. It devoured and crushed and trampled down the remainder with its feet; and it was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns. While I was contemplating the horns, behold, another horn, a little one, came up among them, and three of the first horns were pulled out by the roots before it; and behold, this horn possessed eyes like the eyes of a man and a mouth uttering great boasts.

Scripture interprets Scripture, not humanity. Daniel 7:16 I approached one of those who were standing by and began asking him the exact meaning of all this. So he told me and made known to me the interpretation of these things:

Daniel did not interpret the dream. He had divine help. Daniel 7:19-20 Then I desired to know the exact meaning of the fourth beast, which was different from all the others, exceedingly dreadful, with its teeth of iron and its claws of bronze, and which devoured, crushed and trampled down the remainder with its feet, and the meaning of the ten horns that were on its head and the other horn which came up, and before which three of them fell, namely, that horn which had eyes and a mouth uttering great boasts and which was larger in appearance than its associates.

Daniel 7:23-24 Thus he said: ‘The fourth beast will be a fourth kingdom on the earth, which will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth and tread it down and crush it. As for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings will arise; and another will arise after them, and he will be different from the previous ones and will subdue three kings.

The beast kingdom will start out as a ten ruler committee. The antichrist, little horn, or the beast of Revelation (take your pick of names) will eliminate three of the rulers and take control. The other seven rulers will hand over their power to the antichrist. That is the sequence of the beast taking control of his empire.

Revelation 17:12 The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but they receive authority as kings with the beast for one hour. Horns are equated with kings. These kings are going to turn over their authority to the beast or antichrist. Revelation 17:13 These have one purpose, and they give their power and authority to the beast.

Daniel 7, Revelation 13, and Revelation 17 are the same time period, same beast/kingdom, and same beast/antichrist.

Guess work is not indicated. God reveals, but His word has to be read.
