Now we will be looking at the yes side of this question. There will be peace, but it will be shortly lived.
Daniel 9:27 he (the antichrist) will confirm a covenant with many for one seven. In the middle of the seven he will put an end to the sacrifices and offerings. And on the wing of the temple he will set up an abomination that will cause desolation until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.
The antichrist will bring a solution to the worlds conflicts and problems in one seven ( which is code for 3 and a half years, times 2 which equals 7 years). This is the total amount of his rule on earth, 7 years. But after the first 3 and a half years is up, he will then set up an Idol of himself, (the abomination that causes desolation) in the Holy temple in Jerusalem. All the holy utensils for sacrifices are already made today according to God’s law of the temple regulations of the Torah, the Five Books of The Law. Even the Priests are trained to make sacrifice’s when this new Temple is built in Jerusalem, since the second Temple was destroyed by the Roman Empire in 70CE.
which was prophesied by Jesus Christ during the remodeling of the Temple in Matthew 24:1 Jesus left the temple and was walking away when His disciples came up to Him to call His attention to its buildings. “Do you see all these things?” He asked. “Truly I tell you, not one stone here will be left on another; every one will be thrown down.
The Scriptures pertaining to the antichrist, Jesus the Christ’s second coming and all that will happen still stands till all things are fulfilled, and then the end will come. But before all that, the antichrist will break his covenant and will cause war with all the nations in the second half of the 3 and a half years.
Revelation 19:19-21 And I saw the beast, the king of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him (Jesus Christ) who sat on the horse and against His army. Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs, in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worship his image. These two were cast into the lake of fire burning with brimstone.
This is the second time frame of peace. For satan is, after this, bound for a 1000 years. satan then is released from the bottomless pit, in:
Revelation 20:7-10 Now when the thousand years has expired, satan will be released from his prison. And will go out and deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is the sand of the sea,” They (the devil & his army) went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city (Jerusalem). And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them. The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
Then the third and final peace, the everlasting peace when all men from every nation tribe and tongue are judged (Revelation 20:11-15). And then after that all things will be made new. At this time, God will make a new Heaven and a new earth. The wicked are judged, and thrown into hell and the righteous made new in glory with Christ in Heaven for all eternity. Those who believed and followed Christ Jesus on earth before the final judgment takes place.
Revelation 21:1-2 Now I saw a new Heaven and a new earth for the first Heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I John saw the Holy city, New Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God, Prepared as a bride adorned for her (the saints) husband (The Lord Jesus The Christ).
Revelation 21:4-7 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away. Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” and He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.” And He said to me, “It Is Finished! I Am the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life, freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God, and he shall be My son.
And all this will happen! And so we now come to the conclusion, peace, that all of the world is looking for will indeed happen. But not in the way that people wished, envisioned nor hoped for. And here, the truth is revealed of what Ephesians 6 says:
Ephesians 6:11-12 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against rulers of darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the day of evil, and having done all to stand.
We truly are in a spiritual battle of powers of darkness whether you are a believer of Jesus Christ or not. And personally, I rather believe the Holy Word of God, The Inspired Word of God through God Almighty’s Holy Spirit, than man and their own understanding of proud false-hood. There is so much more than what we have covered. This is the conclusion of: “Will There Ever Be Peace In the Middle East?” But only begins a chapter in “The Sign of the End Times Series.” If you have any questions or comments?
