Previously, (March 29) I wrote an article about the End Times in a different MSN spaces site that I have not been able to log into or edit for quite some time. The site was started under a business I worked for (A Christian Online Directory Service). Since then, the company closed and with it, my previous IM account username and password. Therefore, I have copied this article to this new site; however, if you want to visit my previous site please feel free to do so. I have several books I recommend, which some are duplicates of the ones on this site. Also, there are other blogs that I have written. So, take the time to check it out, but, be forewarned, there are some pretty serious issues I am dealing with, including the blog on Mormonism and Christianity. I believe that this blog is as current as when I wrote it.
Furthermore, if you want to correspond with me regarding any of the articles I have on the other site, please do so through this site since I am unable to access that account. I have had to start from scratch with this new site, and although I still do consulting and own New Life Consulting, I am changing the name simply to, "Adrian Bernal Ministries." Thank you.
Blessings and Shalom,
The Covenant of Death (March, 29 2007)
One of the biggest mistakes that can be done for interpreting biblical prophecy is to rely solely on current events. However, Yeshua plainly states that world-wide events would all be signs of the times (Matthew 24), and that believers should not expect Him to come as a thief in the night (1 & 2 Thessalonians). Unlike other teachers that would like to scare you into believing that He can come at anytime, a wise student of the Scripture will take current events and make sure they are within biblical parameters. One of these parameters is that Israel will sign a covenant with the anti-Messiah prior to Yeshua’s second coming.
Why would they want to do that? Let’s say you are to wanting to play a game of basketball. You have 5.3 million teammates, and your opponents have 80+ million teammates. Now, let’s take those odds and go to Vegas. Which of these teams would you bet on? The above numbers reflect the current populations of Jews and Arabs in the Middle-East. Up until now, I would have bet on the Jews. [However, since Annapolis I can’t quite find myself supporting Israel’s decision to be "bullied" by so many world leaders, especially and sadly, President Bush.] If Iran gets their hands on nuclear weapons, those odds would be a very real threat.
Just within the last few days the infamous Arab League summit was held in Riyadh. According to the Jerusalem Post, "Arab leaders called on Israel to accept their land-for-peace offer and open direct negotiations with the Arabs." Also, some very real threats were added by Jordan’s King Abdullah II, stating, "Israel must choose between two options: to live in a cycle of constant war and increasing hatred or to accept the option of peace and co-existence." He insisted that the U.S. push Israel into accepting their offer. Again, 80+ million Arabs surround a country no larger than Rhode Island with 5.3 million Jews. Hardly a fair fight, don’t you think? (for the Arabs I mean.)
With all kidding aside, Arabs are more than willing to accept the option that the Jews exist if they give back the land that they captured in the 1967 war. What? Has there ever been a country, outside of Israel, that has been told—actually, forced by the world population: EU, UN, the U.S., Russia, and Great Britain to give back their land? What needs to be emphatically understood by the world community is, not only did Israel defend, and sweat tears of blood for their right to exist, but YHVH Himself gave that land to them through Avraham. Before there were Arabs, God made a covenant with Avraham that his people through Isaac, and Jacob (Israel) would be given the land. Now it is the Arab who is trying to rewrite history, and make a false claim to the land. "Palestinians" used to be the term that referred to all people that lived in the region prior to 1948, Jew and Arab (not solely the Arab). When it was apparent that Israel was going to go to war in 1947, shortly after the gas chambers, the surrounding Arab countries refused to absorb the so-called "Palestinians." They had the room and resources to accommodate millions upon millions of Arabs. Actually, today, Jordan is made up of more than 53% of these so-called "Palestinians." Did you get that? Jordanians are actually made up of Palestinians, or is that Jordanians? Confusing isn’t it.
Here is the plain truth. You can search historical records if you disagree and then convince me otherwise. "Palestinians" were used by the Arab countries as mere pawns of political power. They refused to absorb them. They allowed their own people to live in tents, they let them starve and built a deep-seated hatred for the Jews. They wanted the sympathy of the world for their suffering brethren, but they would not lift one finger to help. So much so that Israel, after the war, absorbed more than two million Arabs and today they live in far better conditions than their surrounding 80+ million Arab friends. Israel brought stoves, and refrigerators, and plumbing to the Gaza Strip and West Bank. Israel has constantly relinquished their resources to simply have bombs thrown back into their faces. These are the facts, folks!
With so much pressure on Israel to sign a "true" peace treaty, I wouldn’t be surprised if Javier Solana, EU’s Superman, negotiates a deal in the very near future. This deal, will reveal the anti-Messiah to those that have eyes to see, and the Covenant of Death will be the false peace treaty that will hand the Jewish people over to the wolves of the world. The anti-Messiah will break that treaty three-and-a-half years into it, and then, truly, the gates of hell will be opened. This will not be the Wrath of God; however, it will be overwhelming and greatly troubling for all the Jewish people and all believers in the Messiah, especially in the Middle-East. Yet, God promises to cut that time short and redeem His people. Come quickly, Lord Yeshua!
