The Saudi FM says that if Israel rejects their peace offer, the matter goes into the hands of the lords of war

In opening statements at the Arab League meeting in Saudi Arabia, the Saudi Foreign Minister (FM), Saud al Faisal, said that if Israel rejects the Arab peace initiative, it means that Israel is not interested in reaching a peaceful solution and the conflict goes into the hands of the "lords of war".

The Saudi plan, first approved at the Arab Summit in 2002, calls for the Arab world to recognize Israel in exchange for Israeli withdrawal to the pre-1967 borders and a Palestinian state with the Eastern section of Jerusalem as its capital. Israel has offered to accept the Saudi plan as a starting point for negotiations, but says that the plan must change the requirement for return of all Palestinians to Israel, a clause that the Arabs are refusing to change.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The declaration from the Saudi FM to Israel that the Jewish state must accept the Arab peace initiative or the "lords of war" take over, is a precursor to fulfillment of Bible prophecy for the Last Days.

At the Arab Summit in Beruit, Lebanon back in 2002, the Arab League approved the Saudi peace plan and told Israel there could be peace in the Middle East. Israel quickly rejected the proposal recognizing that a return to the pre-1967 borders of Israel would open the Jewish state up for total destruction. For the last five years the offer has been on the table and with the Arab League meeting in Saudi Arabia, the Saudi plan has once again surfaced as the only plan that the Arab world will consider and with no changes. Israel still has the same reservations they had five years ago, even in the face the threat from the Saudi FM that if they reject the plan, the "lords of war" will take over. This situation seemingly, is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

Ezekiel, Daniel, and the Psalmist all wrote of this dilemma in Ezekiel 38, Daniel 11, and Psalm 83. Joel, another ancient Jewish prophet, revealed that a military militia would form to go to war with Israel with the intent to destroy the Jewish state, that's Joel 2:2-3.

The invasion would come when Israel believes there is peace in the Middle East, that's Ezekiel 38:8, 11.
