End Times: Israel God’s Centerpiece - Part 2

Will There Ever be Peace in the Middle East?

David Mitts

Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; But in the middle of the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, even until the consummation, which is determined, Is poured out on the desolate." (Dan 9:27 NKJV)

Provisions of the coming peace agreement:

Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; But in the middle of the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, even until the consummation, which is determined, Is poured out on the desolate." (Dan 9:27 NKJV)

  1. A Palestinian state created in Judea - West Bank
  2. Jews living in the new Palestinian state will be permitted to stay.
  3. Temple Mount placed under sharing arrangement.
  4. Israel will build Third Temple on Temple Mount.
    1) Jewish temple completed during first 3 ½ years of seven-year agreement.
  5. A final agreement on the status of Jerusalem will be postponed for seven years, allowing Israel to retain control.


The seven-year peace agreement:

  1. Jews offer animal sacrifices - Antichrist orders sacrifices stopped.
  2. Antichrist stands on Temple Mount declaring to be Messiah – Abomination of Desolation.

    "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. (Mat 24:15-22 NKJV)

  3. Great Tribulation starts - middle of seven-year agreement - Jews in Judea flee – continues 3 ½ years
  4. End of seven-year agreement - Palestinians and International Community demands Israel surrender east Jerusalem – Israel refuses.
  5. International Community invades Israel to force compliance.
  6. Israel will fight invading armies of the Antichrist and his world government – Battle of Armageddon.

    The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river, the Euphrates; and its water was dried up, so that the way would be prepared for the kings from the east. And I saw coming out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits like frogs; for they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them together for the war of the great day of God, the Almighty. ("Behold, I am coming like a thief. Blessed is the one who stays awake and keeps his clothes, so that he will not walk about naked and men will not see his shame.") And they gathered them together to the place which in Hebrew is called Har-Magedon.(Rev 16:12-16 NASB)

  7. Jesus will come back to Earth and fight for Israel – defeats world government armies – establishes His Kingdom on Earth.


Daniel’s 70 Weeks Prophecy (Daniel 9:24-27)

"Seventy weeks have been decreed for your people and your holy city, to finish the transgression, to make an end of sin, to make atonement for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy place. "So you are to know and discern that from the issuing of a decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince there will be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; it will be built again, with plaza and moat, even in times of distress. "Then after the sixty-two weeks the Messiah will be cut off and have nothing, and the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. And its end will come with a flood; even to the end there will be war; desolations are determined. "And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; and on the wing of abominations will come one who makes desolate, even until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who makes desolate."(Dan 9:24-27 NASB)

  1. This prophecy is described as 70 weeks of years or 490 years.

    Another seven-year timespan is recorded in Genesis 29:27-28.

    "Complete the week of this one, and we will give you the other also for the service which you shall serve with me for another seven years." Jacob did so and completed her week, and he gave him his daughter Rachel as his wife.(Gen 29:27-28 NASB)

    A week equaled seven years just like the prophecy of Daniel’s 70 Weeks.

Final Seven Years - 490-Year Prophecy

  1. Middle East peace agreement - Final Seven Years begins. (Daniel 9:27)

  2. Five important aspects:

    c. What is the Confirmation of the Covenant?
    d. What are the sacrifices that will be stopped?
    e. What is the Abomination of Desolation?
  3. Who is “he”?

    a. The “he” does three things:
       1) Confirms covenant
       2) Causes the sacrifice and offering to cease

    b. Antichrist - prince of the covenant (Daniel 11:21-22)
    "In his place a despicable person will arise, on whom the honor of kingship has not been conferred, but he will come in a time of tranquility and seize the kingdom by intrigue. "The overflowing forces will be flooded away before him and shattered, and also the prince of the covenant. (Dan 11:21-22 NASB)
    c. Antichrist takes away the daily sacrifice. (Daniel 11:31)
    "Forces from him will arise, desecrate the sanctuary fortress, and do away with the regular sacrifice. And they will set up the abomination of desolation.(Dan 11:31 NASB)
    d. Antichrist shall place the abomination that maketh desolate. (Daniel 11:31)
    e. The “he” is the Antichrist.

    b. Abrahamic Covenant - God’s promise - Promised Land would belong to him and his descendants forever.
  5. What is the Confirmation of the Covenant?

    a. Animal sacrifices - offered as in Old Testament
    b. Antichrist stops animal sacrifices.
  7. What is the Abomination of Desolation?

    a. Abomination of Desolation occurs in holy place. (Matthew 24:15)
    "Therefore when you see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand),(Mat 24:15 NASB)
    b. Holy place - temple or Temple Mount 1) Antichrist stands in temple and claims to be God. (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4)
    that you not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God.(2Th 2:2-4 NASB)

    d. Military invasion launched by U.N. to force Israel’s submission - will of International Community (Zechariah 14:2)
    For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city will be captured, the houses plundered, the women ravished, and half of the city exiled, but the rest of the people will not be cut off from the city. (Zec 14:2 NASB)
    e. Invasion starts in Plain of Megiddo (Battle of Armageddon).

    h. Jesus Christ intervenes on the side of Israel. (Zechariah 14:3)
    Then the LORD will go forth and fight against those nations, as when He fights on a day of battle. In that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which is in front of Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives will be split in its middle from east to west by a very large valley, so that half of the mountain will move toward the north and the other half toward the south. (Zec 14:3-4 NASB)
    i. He destroys the Antichrist and human government – establishes His Kingdom upon Earth. (Revelation 11:15)
    j. Then the seventh angel sounded; and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, "The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ; and He will reign forever and ever."(Rev 11:15 NASB)
