President Trump just unveiled a Middle East peace plan crafted by the president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner proposing giving away East Jerusalem to the Palestinians and creating a tunnel connecting West Bank and Gaza!
“This plan will double Palestinian territory and set the capital of the Palestinian state in eastern Jerusalem where the United States will happily open an embassy,” Trump said.
He later tweeted a map of the proposed State of Palestine.
The plan also includes a map of a contiguous Palestinian state in the West Bank, with a proposed tunnel to connect the West Bank and Gaza Strip. There would also be land swaps south of Gaza to give the Palestinians more territory despite the fact that the Torah commands us not to give up the land permanently…
The land shall not be sold in perpetuity, for the land is mine.Leviticus 25:23
This is the first time Israel has agreed to a Palestinian state with defined borders.
Why is this not a good plan according to Bible Prophecy?
Because it will usher in the final tribulation according to Revelation 11:1-2…
And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein. [the temple mount] But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not [East Jerusalem]; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city [East Jerusalem] shall they tread under foot forty and two months [3 1/2 years].
Two chapters later in Revelation 13 it describes America symbolically as “the lamb-like beast that speaks like a dragon”.
Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; and it had two horns like a lamb but it spoke as a dragon.Revelation 13:11
In Bible prophecy a “Beast” is a symbol of a world power. And while America was founded on the principles of the lamb as a Judeo Christian nation (it’s two horns representing freedom of religion and freedom of democracy) but it is prophesied that it [America] will end up speaking as a dragon! The dragon of Revelation represents HaSatan who seeks to divide Israel and take the very place where G-d has placed his holy name (2 Chron. 6:6) and cause gentiles to trample it underfoot as they have so many times before… The only difference is this will come to be the final time! While this proposal may sound good calling it a “Peace” deal it is prophesied that it will lead to plunder! What do you think will happen to the Jewish residences in East Jerusalem once the city is divided and East Jerusalem is giving to the Palestinians! The prophet Zechariah foresaw the sad state of Jerusalem as a divided city just before Moshiach comes saying,
Behold, a day is coming for the Lord when the spoil taken from you will be divided among you. 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. 3 Then the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations, as [awhen He fights on a day of battle. 4 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.Zechariah 14:1-4
We have known for some time now this would happen as this is why Trump only put the US Embassy in West Jerusalem… because he had plans to give East Jerusalem to the Palestinians just as the UN has proposed so many times before! Let it be known that we are not against Trump as a person but against any of man’s plans that divides the land and goes against G-d’s word!
This is a warning and a call out to all Watchmen to share why we cannot support this! We must be Watchmen on the wall of Jerusalem and Pray for the peace Jerusalem as David said in Psalm 122:6! Shalu shalom Yerushalayim!
In I Thessalonians 5:3 it was said of the future that while people are saying, “Peace and security” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.
Please be a good Watchman on the walls of Jerusalem and share this understanding with others!
