A Dialogue of Tolerance & Peace With Israel

The president of Israel, Isaac Herzog, shared a message directed to all Arab states that they wish to open dialogue of tolerance and peace in accordance with the Abraham Accords.

1 Thessalonians 5:1-3 (NKJV)

“But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.

And the Prime Minister of Israel, Naftali Bennett, plans to bolster settlements in the Golan Heights, (northeast area of Israel leading into Syria) as well as bolster its Israeli military presence.

But there’s a developing situation to the north of Israel.

Lebanon.

The Iranians is backing terrorists in Lebanon (Hezbollah) Syria and Lebanon, as well as Hamas in the Gaza Strip (south west Israel).

The chess pieces are moving to surround Israel, but not just to surround Israel.

To surround Jerusalem.

Look at what the Lord Jesus said in Luke 21:20-23 (NKJV)

“But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near. Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those who are in the midst of her depart, and let not those who are in the country enter her.

For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! For there will be great distress in the land and wrath upon this people.”

Verse 24 is a very debatable verse of Scripture and could be connected.

Then you have Zechariah 12:1-3 (NKJV)

“The burden of the word of the LORD against Israel. Thus says the LORD, who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him: “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem.

And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.”

But before then, the whole purpose of establishing peace with Israel is so that Israel won’t have to go to war with their Middle Eastern partners that they’ve established diplomatic relations with.

Other men of God has given Psalm 83 as a good reason that a diplomatic confederacy is forming as allies with Israel, which is connected to 1 Thessalonians 5:1-3, but they’ll break this confederacy.

But we know that this confederacy will not last.

“Psalms 83:1-8 (NKJV)

Do not keep silent, O God!
Do not hold Your peace,
And do not be still, O God!
For behold, Your enemies make a tumult;
And those who hate You have lifted up their head.
They have taken crafty counsel against Your people,
And consulted together against Your sheltered ones.

They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation,
That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.”
For they have consulted together with one consent;
They form a confederacy against You:
The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites;
Moab and the Hagrites;
Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek;
Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;
Assyria also has joined with them;
They have helped the children of Lot.”

In understanding this from the end time prophetic picture, look more so at the present day regions of these “tents” as opposed to ethnic origins.

Jerusalem is what the Middle East Arab nations have always been after because the name of the Lord is there. For thousands of years, Isaac and Ishmael has been at it. Remember, from Hagar, an Egyptian maidservant, Ishmael is Abraham’s first son from a bond woman and not from Sarah.

From Sarah, Isaac was born and is the free son (see Galatians 4:21-31).

The Arabs badly want Jerusalem. But not just the taking of Jerusalem. They desire to end the Jewish state. Haman and Hitler were a precursor as to the annihilation of the Jewish nation.

There’s a reason why Israel’s annihilation is sought.

If you destroy the Jewish nation, the Lord can’t save what isn’t there.

But this a folly plan because during the beginning stages of the 7 Year Great Tribulation, the Temple will have been built and the Jews, for 3.5 years, will be doing their Temple worship. It’s in the middle of the great tribulation period that the Jews will be scattered and butchered (see Daniel 9:26-27).

For 3.5 years, which is the second half of the great tribulation period, the Jews will face the worst attacks in their history. It will be at the end of the great tribulation that the Lord Jesus Christ, the Messiah, will come to save the Jews.

Here’s a serious clue in Daniel 12:11-13 (NKJV)

“And from the time that the daily sacrifice is taken away, and the abomination of desolation is set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days.

Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days.

“But you, go your way till the end; for you shall rest, and will arise to your inheritance at the end of the days.”

The Lord Jesus confirms this in Matthew 24:15-22 (NKJV)

“Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house.

And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes. But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath.

For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.

What’s the “Abomination of Desolation?

2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 (NKJV)

“Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.”

No one is supposed to enter the Temple except the high priest, once a year, on the Day of Atonement for his sins and the sins of Israel. But the beast will enter in, establish his throne, cease all sacrifices, and attempt to kill all the Jews during the second half of the great tribulation period.

Revelation 13:5-8 (NKJV)

“And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months. Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. “It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them.

And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation. All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

My point in all of this is to show that we’re seeing things shape up for the dramatic conclusion as prophesied in the Bible.

That’s why we must never go back to business as usual but lay out, with concrete evidence, that the last days are forming up with current events like we’ve never witnessed before.

The Minister's Crucible is designed to inform the Body of Christ about the inner workings of the ministry. The word Crucible from Latin, is "crux" where we get the word "cross" from. It also means a "metal container" where metals and other substances are melted or are subjected to higher temperatures, put to the temperature test. The Lord Jesus said "If any man desires to follow after Me, let him deny himself, take up his cross, and follow Me." Let's take up our cross and follow Him.
