There is one key event that begins the Seven-Year Tribulation, the last seven years on earth as we know it.
It is this occasion that kicks off the seven year period prior to Jesus’ Second Coming.
What is it?
The signing of a peace deal between Israel and many other nations.
But not just any Israeli peace agreement; it’s the one brokered by a global leader of a ten-region alliance.
Yesterday, late breaking news announced that the president’s administration now wants the UN to lead the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.
In other words, President Obama – at the end of his term – has asked the UN to head up peace negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians.
Why has he waited until the end of his presidency to initiate this often drawn out process?
Surprisingly, Palestinian officials said they are “open to an intervention.”
So, why is this a big deal? After all, the UN has been involved in multiple Israeli peace processes.
This is big because – if the UN becomes involved – it will be the first time since the UN’s creation of ten global sectors, which was established in 2009 by the UN Parliamentary Assembly.
The last time the UN sponsored Israeli peace talks was the 2002 Road Map for Peace, well before the 2009 establishment of the ten global regions.
Additionally, it’s a big deal because the position of the UN Secretary General – the top UN dog – is up for grabs next year.
There’s been much speculation about who will step into that role once the current general, Ban Ki-moon, leaves office.
And check this out: this is the first time ever that his replacement will be chosen by an election.
Meaning this will be the first time the leader of the world was chosen by the people.
Some speculate Irina Bokova, the Director-General of UNESCO, will seize the role. Others believe President Obama is aiming for it (he’ll be out of office by then.) Others say Macedonia’s Srgjan Kerim will be the next secretary general.
Only time will tell.
Let me be clear: the UN has, in 2009, created ten global regions. It’s top position is up for grabs next year and will be selected by election for the first time ever. And now, it will be involved in brokering an Israeli peace process.
Could it be any clearer?
Any way you slice it, puzzle pieces are falling into place. There are too many “firsts” to ignore: the first time the UN brokered a peace deal since the ten-region establishment; the first time the UN leader is elected instead of chosen.
And all converging in 2017, the year after the U.S.’s presidential election.
What’s most disturbing is these puzzle pieces often fall quietly…with little to no press coverage.
Thankfully, we don’t have to be in the dark.
Be blessed my wonderful Friends! As the late Jack Kelley used to say: you can almost hear the footsteps of the Messiah.
