20 Key Prophecy Signs » PM, ministers meet to discuss US crisis
In the News...
By Jerusalem Post.Com Staff. March 13, 2010.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu convened his top ministers for a meeting Saturday evening to discuss the fallout of an announcement on construction in Jerusalem made during the visit of US Vice President Joe Biden.
During Biden’s visit, the Interior Ministry announced that 1,600 housing units will be built in Jerusalem’s Ramat Shlomo neighborhood.
Biden initially condemned the move but on Thursday said that after Netanyahu apologized to him the crisis was behind them.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, however, called Netanyahu on Friday and scolded him over the incident.
Saturday evening, the Anti-Defamation League took the administration to task saying in a statement it was “shocked and stunned” by Washington’s “public dressing down” of Israel. Read More
Tragically, the US/Israeli relationship took a very bad turn for the worst this weekend. Hillary Clinton warned Prime Minister Netanyahu that the relationship was at risk unless Israel toed the Obama administration's line in renewed talks with the Palestinians. This administration clearly wants Israel to divide Jerusalem. Apparently the crisis is spiraling out of control to the point that the US ponders denying Israel arms needed for conflict with Iran.
This, along with so many other events that have happened in the last few weeks that are equally significant, are causing me to pause and take notice. Devastating earthquakes are unquestionably on the rise. God's Temple Mount continues to be front page news. Jewish organizations that promote the reestablishment of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem wrote a letter to the Jerusalem District police commander asking him to allow the offering of the Passover lamb sacrifice (Passover begins on March 30, 2010). Their request has been rejected but to even consider the attempt of a sacrifice on the Temple Mount this year is phenomenal. (If approval is granted, I suspect they will employ a model of the biblical altar constructed by the Temple Institute in Jerusalem.) And the rebuilt Hurva Synagogue in Old Jerusalem opens this week which some Jews believe point to the rebuilding of the Third Temple. Is all this some wild coincidence? It could be, but then again...
From a prophetic point of view I am looking to a very specific event that may result from all this: a 7 year peace agreement. The book of Daniel teaches us the first sign we are to look for to indicate the End Times have begun is a seven year peace agreement! The details of the agreement are not clear in scripture, which means the Lord did not think them important to share with us. However, if we see a seven year agreement signed in the next few months, I think it will mean Daniel's 70th week has begun! Keep watching!
Daniel 9:27 (NASB77)
 "And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; and on the wing of abominations will come one who makes desolate, even until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who makes desolate."
