Blog Note: For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. (1 Thessalonians 5:3). This verse is believed by eschatologists to be a key verse that describes a period of time when Israel signs a worldwide peace or security agreement that is confirmed or verified by the antichrist. Other Biblical verses describe this Jewish agreement as a covenant with death. This Israel security agreement event for ‘peace and safety’ is also believed to be one of the catalysts initiating the Tribulation period on earth. The world today is clamoring for a ‘two-state’ solution between the Jews and the Palestinians regarding the status and geography of Jerusalem. The Bible is clear that a large portion of land in the Middle East was given and promised to the Jews by God, including the current land under contention internationally. The Jews currently do not occupy any significant amount of land that was originally promised and given to them by God.
Zechariah 12:2 … Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.
Zechariah 12:3 … And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
Daniel 9:27 … And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
Isaiah 28:15 … Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:
Isaiah 28:18 … And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it. End of note.
FRANCE TO US: RELEASE YOUR PEACE PLAN OR WE’LL RELEASE OURS
If US President Donald Trump does not present his peace plan in the coming weeks, French President Emmanuel Macron will present his own peace plan.

France denied Israeli media reports that it warned the US it would promote its own peace plan to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict if US President Donald Trump fails to publish his plan soon. French allegedly pressured Trump to release his plan within a number of weeks after the American midterm elections on November 6.
News of the French ultimatum was published on both Channels 10 and 2. It was based on closed door testimony by Foreign Ministry Political Director Alon Ushpiz to the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee.
In its report, Channel 10 said it had spoken with two Knesset members and Chanel 2 said it had quizzed four Knesset members about the story before publishing it. Their reports were fairly identical in regard to the issue of the peace plan.
Former French president Francois Hollande had published a peace initiative and held an international gathering on the subject during the last days of the Obama administration.
French President Emmanuel Macron has not continued to promote the plan, since immediately upon taking office Trump declared that he planned to pursue a resolution to the conflict. The French plan called for a two-state solution to the conflict, at the pre-1967 lines, with east Jerusalem as the Palestinian capital.
The French report expects Trump will publish the plan after the midterm elections.
Ushpiz told the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee that he did not have details regarding the plan. A spokesman for the French Embassy in Tel Aviv said, “the embassy does not know what the reporter is talking about. French President Macron and Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu have a relationship of trust and they speak openly about every topic.”
According to Channel 2, Ushpiz reported that Israel estimates one-third of the congressional seats will change in the midterms and that it is unclear if all would support Israel. He expects Democratic influence will increase as a result, and that this could have an impact on US policy with regard to Israel.
Ushpiz said that Israeli public relations has had no impact on the diplomats who have been inside the Gaza Strip and have witnessed the humanitarian situation there. He added that Israel is losing support among American Jews and suggested that members of the Knesset arrange to speak with US Jewish communities during their trips to the US.
