This is the headline, Bahrain is now the second Arab country to officially normalize ties with Israel in 30 days.
Trump and his son-in-law/senior advisor Jared Kushner stated that more Arab countries would normalize ties with Israel after the UAE officially announced normalizing ties on Aug 13. True to their promise Bahrain announced official ties with Israel less than 30 days after.
Trump has also said that many other Arab countries are “lining up” to normalize ties with Israel as well. Looking at the track record so far, I’d say that’s probably a guarantee.
But what does this mean for students of Bible prophecy? Let’s look at the first part of Daniel 9:27:
27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week.
The Anti-Christ will confirm (not sign) peace treaties with many nations that are on the table. This event will not happen until after the Rapture and it will start the clock of the Tribulation Period.
Egypt signed a peace treaty with Israel in 1979 and Jordan as well in 1994. Its been 26 years since the last peace treaty was signed with Israel and within 30 days two more Arab nations are now officially normalizing ties with their Jewish neighbor.
These events are setting the stage for Daniel 9:27 to be fulfilled. And if this prophecy from Daniel isn’t going to happen until after the Rapture, then how much closer are we to the Rapture actually taking place?
These headlines today are bringing Gods prophetic scenario better into focus. See my study on “Peace in the Middle East – Good, Bad, or Prophetic”
And always remember, why is it important to study Bible prophecy? Because never have we been closer than today..
