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.
Greenblatt returning to Israel for more peace plan meetings

|WASHINGTON – US President Donald Trump’s special representative for international negotiations, Jason Greenblatt, returns to Israel this weekend for continued talks on the administration’s upcoming peace plan. No revelations are expected from the meetings, but Greenblatt and his team, led by Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law, say they are essentially finished with their plan for a comprehensive Israeli-Palestinian peace.
Trump has said he wants the plan published by the end of the year or shortly thereafter.“Looking forward to being back in Israel this week as part of our commitment to productive engagement,” Greenblatt wrote on Twitter. While his formal role at the White House has been to spearhead the peace effort day to day, Greenblatt was also sent by the president earlier this week to represent the administration in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, after a mass slaughter of Jews in a synagogue there last weekend.
Greenblatt, who is Orthodox, wrote an op-ed on his experience. “There is a culture of hate that is multiplying,” he warned. The envoy has not met with Palestinian Authority officials since Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital last December, moving the US Embassy there from Tel Aviv in May. He is not expected to meet with them this week.
