Pope Benedict has called for peace and coexistence in the Middle East

In his Easter message, which was broadcast live in 50 countries around the world, Pope Benedict called for a negotiated solution to the Iranian nuclear crisis, an honorable solution for all parties through honest and serious negotiations.

The Pope also affirmed Israel's just right to exist in peace while calling on the International Community to help the Palestinians to move towards statehood. Speaking on Iraq, the Pope called for peace to finally prevail over the tragic violence that continues to claim victims and he called for those caught up in the conflict in the Holy Land to be able to find peace.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

A religious leader calling for peace in the volatile Middle East is very similar to a scenario that can be found in Bible prophecy in the Last Days. World leaders have spent many hours and much personal energy in an effort to deal with the Iranian nuclear crisis, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the chaotic violence in Iraq.

Now, Pope Benedict is weighing in on the call for peace in the Middle East and for a solution for each of these problem areas. The Pope, a high profile religious leader in our world today, yields much influence in the matters facing our world and his efforts added to the mix could well make a difference. Or should I say, one day a religious leader from Rome will impact the world in these areas of conflict resolution in the Middle East.

However, that religious leader will not be Pope Benedict, but instead the Antichrist who will head up a one-world religion in the first half of the seven year Tribulation Period; that is a prophetic scenario that is found in Daniel 9:27 along with the prophecies of John the Revelator in Revelation 17. The Antichrist will bring peace, howbeit a pseudo-peace and short-term in existence on the world scene, that's Daniel 9:27. This Antichrist will lead the one-world religion, Revelation 17, and it will be headquartered in the city of Rome.

Indeed current events and current personalities are involved in setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
