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.

French President Emmanuel Macron this week sent a special envoy for talks in Jerusalem and Ramallah about the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, Channel 10 reported. According to the report, the emissary was the deputy national security adviser to the French administration, Orléan la-Chevalier, who is considered one of Macron’s top confidantes.
He met in Jerusalem with Deputy National Security Advisor Eitan Ben-David and in Ramallah with a senior PA official, Saeb Erekat. According to estimates, the main reason for the arrival of the French official is the November 11 leaders’ summit in Paris, in which Prime Minister Netanyahu, Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and United States President Donald Trump are to participate.
It was also reported that Macron is interested in examining how the Israeli-Palestinian issue can be integrated into the summit – whether by having it mentioned in its concluding statement or by other means. In addition, Israel believes that Macron intends to try to present his own peace plan in parallel to that of the US, or to present his plan in the event of the failure of the US plan.
