PROPHECY QUESTION 2
Will there be peace between the Arab Nations and Israel?
Ever since the birth of these nations, around four thousand years ago, there has not been peace. There isn't any biblical reason to believe it will be any different today. There cannot be peace between people who are filled with hate and pride. These characteristics are hindrances to peace.
There will be a peace treaty signed with Israel, (Daniel 9:27). It will be a Roman man, who is also called the antichrist, and he will make a covenant with Israel for seven years to protect her from her enemies. In Isaiah 28:15, it is called "a covenant with death and hell." In Isaiah 28:18 the Lord says, it will not stand. She will have laid down her arms, Ezekiel 38:11 and will be at peace in the land; but it will not last. This antichrist will break his covenant with them, Daniel 9:27. In the middle of those seven years and they will be in worse trouble than ever before. Matthew 24:15-21. "There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked." Isaiah 57:21. "For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman and child; and they shall not escape." 1 Thessalonians 5:3.
The only real peace is in Jesus Christ. He is the Prince of Peace. When you trust Him as your Saviour, you have peace with God through Him. "Therefore being justified by faith we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ." Romans 5:1. Do you have this peace? Look to Him and be saved today.
