I believe we are headed toward a Middle East peace agreement in Paris and here is why.

It was January of 1919 following the Battle of Megiddo, the final Allied offensive of the Sinai and Palestine Campaign of the First World War, when Chaim Weizmann, a Zionist leader who had negotiated the 1917 Balfour Declaration with the British Government, agreed with Emir Faisal to full cooperation between independent Arabia and an independent Zionist State of Israel in Palestine.

This agreement, known as the Weizmann-Faisal Agreement of 1919, would precede the Paris Peace Conference of 1919.

Here is why this is important.

We are following a very accurate 100 year anniversary pattern that dates all the way back to 1907.

In 1907 occurred the Bank Panic of 1907 which would lead to the creation of the Federal Reserve in 1913. Then occurred World War I in 1914 closing out with the Balfour Declaration in 1917, the Battle of Megiddo in 1918 and the Weizmann-Faisal Agreement of 1919.

100 years later occurred the Financial Crisis of 2007-2008. The Middle East, through Arab Spring, ISIL and other forces would destabilize into what we have today. In 2017 the declaration of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel by Donald Trump brought completion to the Balfour Declaration. Now, in 2018, we are bracing for war in northern Israel, one with potential prophetic implications.

The question is, will we continue in this 100 year anniversary trend and see a large scale war in northern Israel in 2018, similar to the Battle of Megiddo, and will it lead to a peace agreement being brokered in 2019, 100 years from the Weizmann-Faisal Agreement and Paris Peace Conference?

I believe this could be our trajectory.

I also write in my book about what I call the Ezekiel 37-39 Window, explaining in detail that what World War I started World War II would bring to completion, specifically the formal declaration of the State of Israel. On May 14, 1948 the formal Declaration of the Establishment of the State of Israel was proclaimed by David Ben-Gurion, the Executive Head of the World Zionist Organization, at the Tel Aviv Museum on Rothschild Boulevard. Through the process of both World Wars the Holy Land was repossessed and the State of Israel restored.

The 70th anniversary of Israel’s formal independence, which we will commemorate in 2018, has a significant correlation to the Temple.

As I have documented on several occasions and wrote about in my book, there is a 70 year correlation to Temple construction, destruction and reconstruction based on biblical and historical precedent. David died at the age of 70 and then Solomon could build the Temple. The 70 year Babylonian Captivity was marked by both Temple destruction and reconstruction. The Second Temple was destroyed in 70 AD, marking the life of a king, in this case the life of Christ if it had not been cut short.

Now that we are 70 years from the formal Declaration of the Establishment of the State of Israel, Orthodox Jews know that in order to be truly settled in the land, based on biblical precedent, it is marked by the Temple. To this point they have been in a tabernacle or transition season. With the 70 years now complete they realize that next stage fulfillment is near.

This message is the reason why I flew to Israel in 2016 to meet with Knesset MK and former Temple Institute Executive Director, Yehuda Glick.

As I wrote in February, all eyes are on northern Israel. What will be of significance and what we need to watch this year is military engagement that occurs in Syria and northern Israel between Iran and potentially against the prophesied nations listed in Ezekiel 38-39.

For Christian leaders this is not the time to be leading the sheep into the political fray, be that national or geopolitical. As I have been saying since November of 2016, it is a trap. Global peace is the work of the Antichrist and although we as Christians pray for peace, we need to operate with discernment and be aware of our surroundings, testing all things and giving our allegiance to Christ alone, not spending our limited time promoting a corrupt political system but focusing our efforts on the Gospel.

The Tribulation begins with a peace agreement, false world peace, and as my book posits, global denuclearization, the end game of nuclear proliferation.

The epoch is shifting, the zeitgeist changing, and we need to be very careful with how we move forward in the days ahead using discernment and wisdom. Be ever watchful and prayerful even while other disciples are asleep on their watch.

The hour of trial and tribulation appears to be near.
