Unrest in the middle east will continue to escalate until the Antichrist steps in to solidify a (7 year) peace treaty, between Israel and many of her neighboring Arab nations, that he (AC) will break halfway through. But we know that all who come against Israel will be judged harshly, by God, at the end of the 7 years.
- “He will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’ In the middle of the ‘seven’ he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.” Dan 9:27
- “Therefore the Lord, the LORD Almighty, the Mighty One of Israel, declares: “Ah! I will vent my wrath on my foes and avenge myself on my enemies.” Isa 1:24
The Israeli military launched what could be a “long term offensive against the Hamas ruled Gaza strip on Tuesday, striking at least 50 sites in Gaza; and mobilizing troops for a possible ground invasion aimed at stopping a barrage of rocket attacks against Israel.
