20 Key Prophecy Signs » Sarkozy to Visit Israel to Promote Truce
Israel News. Ynet.com. By Roni Sofer. 12.31.08
International efforts to bring about lull in south gather momentum: French President Nicolas Sarkozy and his foreign minister, Bernard Kouchner, will arrive in Jerusalem next Monday in a bid to mediate between Israel and Hamas. European foreign ministers called on Tuesday for an immediate and lasting ceasefire between Israel and Hamas and for humanitarian aid to be delivered to Gaza. The European Union also called for a return to the peace process interrupted by Hamas rocket attacks and Israel's retaliatory air strikes. "There is no military solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, in Gaza or elsewhere," the statement said.
Earlier, foreign ministers from the Quartet of Middle East peace brokers called for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza and southern Israel, a UN spokeswoman said. The call followed telephone consultations by the officials of the Quartet - grouping the United Nations, the United States, Russia and the European Union - on four days of Israeli air strikes on Gaza responding to Palestinian rocket attacks on Israel. US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana were on the conference call, UN officials said.

This new "war" could be a small spark that burns out on its own. On the other hand, this "war" could be the spark that ignites a Middle East firestorm. And if the prophecy winds start blowing, this firestorm will begin to rage as it sweeps the earth. At some point a great peacemaker will arise to quench the inferno that will threaten world peace. The world will witness an overnight hero that seemingly saves us from ourselves and introduces us to a prolonged time of "peace and safety." Prophecy foretells of this "little horn" who will negotiate and enter into a seven year covenant with Israel. Then, seemingly overnight, this man will become a very "big horn," the biggest and baddest Gentile ruler in the history of the world.
European Union (EU) foreign policy chief Javier Solana has been calling for a Middle East peace agreement for years. Javier Solana, relatively unknown in the US, has been involved in various peace agreements, including being a primary architect of the “Roadmap for Peace”, a resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Interestingly, Mr. Solana may have created the office of the Antichrist when implementing his 10-nation Western European Union’s Assembly Recommendation 666. Recommendation 666 gives one person special emergency powers and the authority to act for the EU. Now Javier Solana is directly involved in a gathering of powerful names (some well known, some not so well known), who are lining up for "peace and safety" negotiations in the Middle East. This is the type of event we need to keep an eye on because the Bible tells us that a seven year "peace and safety" covenant will initiate the end times.
1 Thessalonians 5:1-3 (NIV)
1 Now, brothers, about times and dates we do not need to write to you,
2 for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. 3 While people are saying, "Peace and safety," destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.
Daniel 9:27 (NIV)
27 He will confirm a covenant with many for one 'seven.' In the middle of the 'seven' he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on a wing [of the temple] he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him".
