Olmert calls for peace talks with Arab leaders - Saudi King "Give up land first"

Standing beside German Chancellor Merkel, the Israeli PM Ehud Olmert - at a recent meeting in Jerusalem - invited the Arab leaders to meet with him and discuss the Saudi Peace Initiative; and he encouraged the Arab leaders to include the PA President Mahmoud Abbas.

In response to Olmert's invitation, Saudi King Abdullah said that Israel should withdraw from Arab territories and allow for the creation of a Palestinian state before Arab leaders will meet with Israeli leaders which would be an act of recognizing the Jewish state. Chancellor Merkel said that Germany and the EU encouraged the Arab leaders to consider Olmert's invitation adding that without the support of the Arab states in the peace process, a solution would not be achieved.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Talked about peace in the Middle East that includes: the EU, Israel, and the Arab nations is a precursor for the End Times scenario that can be found in Bible prophecy.

As world leaders continue to meet with Israeli and Arab leaders to discuss the peace process, the situation in the Middle East moves even closer to what Bible prophecy reveals will happen in the future. Chancellor Merkel - the leader of German and the temporary president of the EU - on her recent Middle East trip, was witness to a major move by the Israeli PM Ehud Olmert who invited the Arab leaders to meet and discuss the Saudi Peace Initiative. That gesture by the Israeli PM was somewhat rejected by Saudi King Abdullah who wants Israel to give up disputed territories, now controlled by Israel, before the Arab leaders will meet, and so goes the Middle East peace process. This scenario is setting the stage; however, for the End Times prophecies to be fulfilled.

Ezekiel wrote of a time of peace among Middle Eastern nations in Ezekiel 38:8, 11, a peace that will actually be a short-term peace. Daniel wrote of a peace treaty confirmed with the assistance of a coming world leader, the Antichrist, who will come out of the EU and bring about the much longed for peace, that's Daniel 7:11 and 9:27.

Israeli PM Ehud Olmert's invitation to Arab leaders to talk about peace is truly a stage setter for the fulfillment of Bible prophecy.
