In the course of studying Bible prophecy and watching current events, a series of events became clear that I would like to lay out for you here. It began with my personal search through the Bible to see for myself if God’s Word clarified itself to the point of the bride of Christ being able to understand the times in which we live. I had read in the Bible that we would not be in darkness and that we should watch and pray, but there are so many personal interpretations of scripture out there and I hadn’t taken the time to really search the scriptures myself because I didn’t feel I had the background to understand. So acknowledging my deficiencies, I came before the Lord in prayer and asked Him to reveal His Word through the guidance of the Holy Spirit and show me His plans and not my own desires or interpretations of His plans.
This doesn’t mean I’m always right and this is not a claim to have all the answers. I will never stop warning people not to take my word for anything but to search the scriptures themselves to see whether these things are so. Acts 17:11 The Watchman Bible Study website is the result of my search for Truth and my desire to share the clarity I’ve discovered written into and interpreted by the Bible. While I am not always correct the Bible is, and so if this sequence of events does not turn out to be completely accurate that doesn’t change the Bible’s validity, just shows my lack of full understanding.
What I would like to focus on in this post is a collection of diverse prophesies found throughout the Bible in the order of events as understood through examining the context of these prophesies in light of the HIStory, Our Future Bible studies. The premise of this collection of research by other watchmen on the wall traces Israel’s judgment history through time and showing how that snaps to Israel’s feast days and the 70th week of Daniel, the final seven years of God dealing with Israel before His return in glory. These studies examine the precision of Bible prophecy and history to build faith in what was already fulfilled with 100% accuracy to look toward the future with faith that God’s Word will again be fulfilled in the future with that same accuracy. According to Matthew 24:14,15 “the end” comes at the abomination of desolation, which the HIStory, Our Future Bible studies place in just under one year (February 16, 2009) from today (March 3, 2008).
I am not lost on the significance of making a statement like this, but I am sure if you examine the information at the links provided, you too will see the significance of what I am going to share. Please also note that while this post is focusing on Bible prophecy that is 100% accurate in its future fulfillment, there isn’t the kind of precise dates connected to them and so the timing is my estimation based on my research. This is this watchman’s perspective on what may come to pass in 2008 and how that will explain and connect to the HIStory, Our Future conclusions for the timing of the 70th week of Daniel and the abomination of desolation that will transpire in the midst of that seven years – 2009.
Dividing Israel: November 27,28 Annapolis Conference November 28, 2007Posted by Watchman in America, Dividing Israel, Europe, Islam, Israel.
Tony Webber recently had a question regarding the common date of November 27,28 in terms of the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) and I thought it significant. I’m having a hard time ignoring the coincidences regarding the woman (Israel) and the dragon (Europe/world). Revelation 12
This Day In History: – On November 27, 1095, Pope Urban II makes perhaps the most influential speech of the Middle Ages, giving rise to the Crusades by calling all Christians in Europe to war against Muslims in order to reclaim the Holy Land, with a cry of “Deus volt!” or “God wills it!”November 29, 1947 – “It seems to be more than just coincidence is that Annapolis is being held almost 60 years to the day — by the Jewish calendar — after the nations first voted to divide the land into Israeli and Palestinian states, on November 29, 1947, with U.N. Resolution 181. The Annapolis date was likely chosen for this reason.” –FulfilledProphecy
November 27-28, 1995 – Barcelona Euro-Mediterranean Conference or Common Strategy on the Mediterranean Region is held. This is the predecessor to the ENP which is supposed to “breathe new life” into what began on this date in 1995. Herb L. Peters brought to my attention how the ENP may be the confirmed covenant with many from Daniel 9:26,27 in his book, Recommendation 666.
November 27-28, 2006 – There was a meeting in Tampere, Finland which talked about, and/or confirmed the New ENP going into effect.
November 27-28, 2007 – Annapolis, Maryland meeting is planned to discuss how to bring about peace in the Middle East and a push to agreed terms with which to divide Israel. The US State Department confirmed the invitations had been sent out for next week’s conference, though no agenda has been set and no schedule has been released for the meetings, which the United States hope will kick-start negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.
The above shows a collection of times in history and right now where the Gentile world has involved itself with the land of Israel all on this date. Coincidence???
The Annapolis Conference looks like it will be the launching platform toward the Middle East peace process. Read the respective speeches by Olmert (Israel), Abbas (PLO) and Bush. This is just the trigger to bring about the future peace talks, but it is significant I believe.
Dividing the Land of Israel July 17, 2007Posted by Watchman in America, Dividing Israel, Europe, Fulfilling Prophecy, Israel.
Bush to call for regional summit on Mideast peace process Haaretz (July 16, 2007) – U.S. President George W. will call for a regional conference on restarting the Middle East peace process during a special address Monday, a U.S. official said ahead of the speach. The U.S. president will also announce $190 million in aid to the Palestinian Authority, the official said. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice would lead the peace conference, which would include representatives of Israel and neighbors in the region, said a senior administration official who spoke on the condition of anonymity. The speech to be given by the U.S. president will express a plan for “activism” on the part of the Bush administration, according to a senior Israeli political source who was briefed in advance about it. Bush’s tone is meant to express his approval of the formation of a new Palestinian Authority government under Salam Fayad, as well as the appointment of former British prime minister Tony Blair as the special envoy for the Quartet of Middle East peace negotiators. White House officials said Bush was planning to rally diplomatic and financial support for Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ government. Abbas controls only the West Bank after the Islamic militant group Hamas gained authority in Gaza in June. more… | Israel | Islam | America |
Does this dividing of the land of Israel fulfill Bible prophecy? Ezekiel 38,39 talks of a relative peace prior to an attack by Russia, Turkey, Iran and Libya among others. If the land is divided and a Palestinian state created, a temporary peace would go into effect. Israelis would be moved from their residence now to that land marked for Israel from this dividing and visa-versa. This sounds a lot like…
Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.
I believe the Lord going forth to fight these nations could be referring to the day of the Lord, which comes as sudden destruction from the Almighty. Isaiah 13:6-13 The ultimate end of this battle will be at Armageddon when Christ returns in glory and destroys the armies gathered there from the sixth bowl to do battle. America’s participation in this dividing of the land of Israel will come back to haunt us I believe.
Their children also shall be as aforetime, and their congregation shall be established before me, and I will punish all that oppress them.
