As PM Olmert takes the helm of the Jewish state, he sets the agenda for Israel's future

After weeks of talks, Israel's PM designate Ehud Olmert, with a narrow majority of some 67 members of the 120 seat Gnesset, the Israeli parliament, comes to the helm of the Israeli government after serving as acting PM since former PM Ariel Sharon suffered a debilitating stroke back in January.

Israel's new PM outlined his plans for Israel which involves a withdrawal from parts of the disputed territories of Judea and Samaria and the unilateral setting of borders for the Jewish state, if the Hamas-led Palestinian Authority (PA) will not come to the negotiating table.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

With the new Israeli government in place and PM Ehud Olmert's agenda on the table, it is evidenced that the stage is being set for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled. Israeli government opposition leader former PM Benjamin Netanyahu says that Olmert's agenda only strengthens Palestinian militancy.

The Palestinians take a very bleak view of the implications of Olmert's unilateral plans for naming the borders ,and more than half of Israel's body politic question the wisdom of withdrawing from more of Israel's land. PM Olmert takes the reigns of Israel's government at a key time in Israel's history and future. God's Word, the Bible, states that human government was put in place by God some 4,500 years ago, that's Genesis 9:6.

The prophetic Word of God states that the Lord will use human government to set the stage for His will to be accomplished, that's Daniel 9:13, 20 and Revelation 17:17. A unilateral naming of Israel's borders and no peace partner with the Hamas-led PA sets the stage for a scenario that's found in Ezekiel 35, Malachi 1, and the book of Obadiah; a scenario that speaks of a conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. Basically, it will be a battle between two brothers, Jacob and Esau. Disengagement of the Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria sets the stage for a second Jewish state called Judah, this was foretold in Ezekiel 37:15-23.

Israel's new government does indeed set the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
