The birth of a Baby
I will herein discuss the text of the joint agreement of understanding reached between Israelis and Palestinians in the Conference of Annapolis,
"We express our determination to end the bloodshed, suffering and decades of conflict between our peoples; entering a new era of peace based on freedom, security, justice, dignity and recognition Mutur; propagate a culture of peace and non-violent, to confront terrorism and incitement, whether committed by Palestinians or Israelis. "
"In search of a goal of two states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace and security, we agreed to immediately launch bilateral negotiations in good faith to conclude a peace treaty, to resolve all outstanding issues, including all those most sensitive problems, without exception, as specified in previous agreements. "
"We agree to engage in a vigorous and ongoing negotiations, and we will make every effort to conclude an agreement before the end of 2008. For this purpose, a steering committee, headed jointly by the heads of delegations from each side, will meet continuously as it has been agreed. "
"The steering committee will develop a joint work plan and establish and monitor the work of the negotiating teams to resolve all problems, and will be led by a chief representative of each party. The first meeting of the steering committee will take place on
"President Abbas and Prime Minister Olmert will meet every two weeks to monitor the negotiations and offer all necessary assistance for their advancement."
"The parties also undertake to immediately carry out their respective obligations under the road map toward a permanent solution to bilateral Israeli-Palestinian conflict, agreed by the Quartet on April 30, 2003 - this is known as the road map - and has agreed to form a mechanism American-Israeli-Palestinian, led by the United States, to monitor the implementation of the road map. "
"The parties further undertake to proceed with the implementation of future obligations of the road map until they reach a peace treaty.
The meaning of this event
The main conflict in the Middle East is already 60 years old, basically since Israel was installed by the United Nations as a state. This area is considered a sacred idol for the world's major religions, especially the 3 most troubled: Christianity, Judaism and Islam. So we're talking about a key area in fulfilling prophecy.
The State of Israel is not fulfilling the restoration prophecies of the Bible, because it was put into existence as part of the messianic message of the "false prophet", the Anglo-American axis. In fact, the true
Rather, the State of Israel is a distracter that goes against the truth. It is a manifestation of interpretations of the Scriptures done by blind Christianity and as a result the majority of mankind has closed its eyes to the true people of God.
However, there are two sides on this issue: Even though the objective of the Devil and his demons is seizing the interests of the people of God, there is a reflection that manifests itself in physical aggression against the Palestinian area. So what happens in the
So the Declaration on
2 For YOU yourselves know quite well that the day of the Lord is coming exactly as a thief in the night. 3 Whenever it is that they are saying: “Peace and security!” then sudden destruction is to be instantly upon them just as the pang of distress upon a pregnant woman; and they will by no means escape. (1 Thessalonians 5:2, 3.)
This "sudden destruction" is an alarm signal for the people of God. It is a visible sign that the time of trial against the wicked one has come. It will mean a great spiritual awakening among all Christians, and many of those with different faiths. So this situation will give rise to an explosion of "prophets" in the world, some true and others false. Will it be easy to distinguish truth from falsehood in this period that will begin shortly? Most probably no!
"As the pangs of distress to the pregnant woman"
The Declaration of Annapolis was released on
We can interpret these period mainly in 4 ways. The full term human gestation period is 266 solar days. We can thus try 266 solar days. Or we can take 9 month to 30 days which gives 270 days, We could count 9 solar months making 274 days or 40 weeks of pregnancy taking us to 280 days. That would give the following…
- 266 days,
August 19, 2008
- 270 days,
August 23, 2008
- 274 days,
August 27, 2008
- 280 days,
September 2, 2008
As from today we must focus our attention on a possible "sudden destruction" that directly affects the interests of those involved in these peace talks. Will it be an attack on the shrines in
It is likely that the model of the "birth pangs" can help us understand other biblical passages. It is no coincidence that a baby is born after 9 months as our Creator organized and that this time can be measured on the basis of skylights that are visible from Earth.
"All these things are beginning pangs of distress"
It is interesting that Jesus himself, when he announced the signs of his presence, also used the term "pang of distress”. Is this referring explicitly to the same incident?
7 “For nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be food shortages and earthquakes in one place after another. 8 All these things are a beginning of pangs of distress. (Matthew 24:7, 8.)
Many Christians feel that these words had a fulfillment with the start of WW1, when the 2520 years of the Gentile Times ended. Since then we are generally speaking in the ‘last days of this world’. This understanding is valid for the entire period of 98 years (1914-2012), in which we saw two world wars and the Cold War, as well as increased hunger and earthquakes in the world.
However, it appears that there is a second, more pronounced fulfillment. This second fulfillment, finally began in 2008, when again "nation will rise against nation," when we are facing a global food crisis and when earthquakes have increased. We are talking about a situation that is climaxing precisely as you read.
It is as though 2008-2012 was the "conclusion" of the "conclusion", a small period in which all things occur on a scale never before seen. God’s works are after all fractal!
One way to confirm this situation is checking whether the conflict that began exactly 2,520 days after the fall of the
What is born after the "sudden destruction" that happens in the next days?
If this prophecy is now interpreted correctly, the "appointed time" mentioned in Daniel 11:29 is a reflection of events of 1914 in 2008. So we could expect "the king of the north" comes to install the "disgusting thing causing desolation". This will cause suffering to the people of God for three and a half years.
These 3.5 years will begin in autumn 2008 and end in spring of 2012, according to what we have been able to understand at this point of time. This period is a parallel corresponding to the period of 1914-1918, a time of necessary discipline.
Was the collapse of the
While we can not be dogmatic here, it is interesting to note some similarities
28 “And he will go back to his land with a great amount of goods, and his heart will be against the holy covenant. And he will act effectively and certainly go back to his land. (Daniel 11:28).
This is very similar to what happened during the arms race that the German Empire started before 1914, which paved the way for confrontation with the
In that regard, it is interesting to note the expression of Daniel in the previous verses:
26 And the very ones eating his delicacies will bring his breakdown. “And as for his military force, it will be flooded away, and many will certainly fall down slain. has been rising in power and has returned to it’s country with a large quantity of goods.
27 “And as regards these two kings, their heart will be inclined to doing what is bad, and at one table a lie is what they will keep speaking. But nothing will succeed, because [the] end is yet for the time appointed. (Daniel 11:26-27.)
Is it not true that domestic reforms were driven by the same leaders that hastened the downfall of the
In the fulfillment for 1914, the "king of the north" is evolving from the German Empire to the
The complete picture that can be discerned so far is as follows:
After recovering from their big fall,
However, the military forces of NATO acted in such a way that
All this will occur between August and September 2008. Oppression should become apparent in the autumn of 2008 and last for three and a half years.
During the 1335 days of the Great Tribulation the different aspects of the prophecy of Daniel chapter 11 will be fulfilled. The "king of the north" is glorified and promotes worship of the "disgusting thing causing desolation". Finally, it's time for the attack against the people of God.
The "constant feature" will be removed
It is very likely that in autumn 2008, before the beginning of next year the "constant feature" - that is worship God accepts - will be removed. This expression, which is also translated as "ongoing holocaust", represents the constant service by true Christians. It will be a time of a general religious suppression.
The authorities in the world impose a new form of worship, probably based on the principles of the Earth Charter, in which there will be no place for teaching a clearly expressed truth. The beliefs are relative and accommodate the interests of the majority. The political system will become the true god of the world's religions.
So the Catholic Church and evangelical fundamentalism will be eliminated. ‘Extremists’ have no place in the aspirations of this new "beast" of governance. People will not have freedom of choice on this matter, they will only be consumers of a religion based on worship of a human government.
The 70th week
If there is a greater fulfillment of Daniel 7, 8 and 10-12, then there could also be a greater fulfillment of the prophecy of the "seventy weeks". It is possible that the ceasing of the sacrifices mentioned in Daniel 9:27 has a correspondence with the removal of the "constant feature".
If this is the case, then the last half of the "70 weeks" that began in 1521/1522AD would begin in autumn 2008. The nailing of the 95 theses to the church door of the
So the last 490 years until the restoration of the true and permanent
Although we could not find exact accuracy in this regard, it is interesting that the margin of error for this projection is only half a year.
