Israel and Syria have reached an agreement on the Golan Heights in secret meetings

Haaretz, an Israeli newspaper, is reporting that a series of meetings took place in Europe between the Syrians and the Israelis and the two parties formulated an understanding for a peace agreement between Syria and Israel.

As part of the agreement, Israel would withdraw from the Golan Heights to the binds of June 4, 1967 with the timetable for the withrawal to remain for open discussions. Both Israeli officials and Syrian officials are denying that any such agreement of understanding is on the table and they even deny that there have been any meetings between the two states.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Reports of secret meetings between Israel and Syria and the agreement of understanding, the result of these meetings, are setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

According to some sources, the Syrians have been sending positive signs of an interest to go to the negotiating table with the Israelis and talk about a comprehensive peace agreement between these two Middle Eastern states. Israel has downplayed these signs and said only after Syria breaks with Hezbollah, Iran, and Hamas, will they even consider holding talks on subjects like peace and the Golan Heights. At the same time, Syrian military forces have been building up in the area near the Golan Heights at the Israeli-Syrian border with the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) on alert for this potential threat. Now, with the report of secret meetings between these two parties, the drama of the Last Days is moving closer to the final act.

Syria, refered to as the king of the North in Daniel 11:40-41, is the Middle Eastern state that will make the first move against the Jewish state of Israel. Syria will be joined initially by Egypt, Daniel 11:40-43, where Egypt is refered to as the king of the South. After this initial coalition of states, a number of other states will join with Syria and Egypt to move to destroy Israel, that's found in Ezekiel 38 and Psalm 83.

The conflicting reports of Syria's intent to go to the negotiating table with Israel or to make changes with its military is evidence that the stage is being set for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
