“The Coming Peace Treaty”
by Art Sadlier   
March 1st, 2009

Bible prophecy tells that some day there will be a false peace treaty signed in the Mid-East by the Anti-Christ, called the beast in the book of Revelation. Daniel, Paul and John tell us about this coming event. Today the whole world is crying out for peace in the mid-east, they seem to believe that this peace will solve all of the world’s problems and troubles. They believe that Islam will be satisfied and that terrorism will cease and the world will come together as one big happy family. The basis of this peace is the division of Israel, part going to the Islamic Palestinians and part going to Israel (Joel 3:2  Daniel 11:39).

Behind the scenes Satan is moving to take control of the Temple Mount. Why is Satan so determined to take control of the Temple? Paul tells us why in 2 Thessalonians 2:4, he wants to put his man in the temple and have the world worship him. Satan will be indwelling his man and through him the world will worship Satan. Satan not only wants to be worshipped as God has been worshipped but he wants to be worshipped in the very place where God has been worshipped in the past, in the Temple at Jerusalem.  He wants to replace God, Satan knows that God is planning to be worshipped in the Temple“…..Son of man, the place of my throne, and the place of the soles of my feet where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel forever…” Ezek. 43:7. for all of eternity, and he wants to defeat that purpose of God. The Lord speaking to Ezekiel about the Temple said,

Satan needs Israel in the short term, to rebuild the Temple and to re-establish the worship so that his man can usurp the Temple. Satan’s ultimate goal is to eliminate Israel altogether, He is even now preparing Islam to ultimately attempt to fulfill that purpose. Listen to some of the statement of the leaders of Islam......

“The Arab people will not be embarrassed to declare: We shall not be satisfied except by the final obliteration of Israel from the map of the Middle East,”  Muhammad Salah al-Din Egyptian foreign minister” (1954)   “We aim at the destruction of Israel. The immediate aim: perfection of Arab military might. The national aim: the eradication of Israel,” Egyptian President Nasser (1965).   “The existence of Israel is an error which must be rectified. This is our opportunity to wipe out the ignominy, which has been with us

since 1948. Our goal is clear-to wipe Israel off the map.”  Iraqi President Abdur Rahman Aref  (June 4 1967).  “We are announcing a war against the sons of apes and pigs (Jews) which will not end until the flag of Islam is raised over Jerusalem”, Hamas leaflet (Sept. 1 1993). “Jerusalem is the property of the Muslim nation….Nobody can ever decide the fate of Jerusalem. We shall re-take it with the help of Allah out of the hands of those of whom the Qur’an said: ‘It was written of them that they shall be demeaned and made wretched’…We are getting ready for them, O brethren!”  Former Egyptian president Anwar Sadat.  That attitude and purpose has never changed over the years and is still the passion of Islam today.

The method may change but not the goal. “We seek to establish a state which we can use in order to liberate the other part of the Palestinian soil”, George Habash, leader of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.  “Now we accept the formation of the Palestinian state in part of Palestine, in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank. We will start from that part and we will liberate Palestine, inch by inch”, Salah Khalaf Abu Iyad (1991).

Iranian President Ahmadinejad has almost daily repeated the pledge to annihilate Israel and has called on all Islamic nations to join in that mission.

The question that we are left with is how will there ever be a peace treaty between Islam and Israel? The answer is that Satan will deceive the nations, including Islam into accepting such a treaty. Satan is the great deceiver, but not only will Satan deceive the nations into this false peace but the Lord will also send the nations a strong delusion to cause them to accept this false peace, see 2 Thess. 2: 9-12.

Following the Peace Treaty, in the early part of the tribulation period, the Islamic nations along with Russia will descend on Israel to fulfill their passion and attempt to annihilate Israel, as is recorded in Ezekiel 38-39.

Today preparations are being made for both of these scenarios to be fulfilled, the stage is being set, the trumpet soon to sound, you have been warned, are you ready?
