Israeli PM Ehud Olmert has met with Jordanian King Abdullah in Petra and invited Arab leaders to meet for peace talks

Israeli PM Ehud Olmert told reporters at a press conference in Petra in Southern Jordan that Israel is ready to invite Arab leaders without preconditions from either side to discus the Arab Peace Initiative and to find ways to implement the plan.

Olmert told the conference that Israel was ready to sit down and talk about the Arab Initiative carefully and that the Jewish state is willing to listen to Arab views. Israeli PM Olmert and Jordan's King Abdullah held rare high level talks on the sidelines of the conference held in Petra, the city carved into the rose red stone and built by the Nabataean culture some 2,500 years ago.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The fact that an Israeli PM held a news conference in Petra and invited the Arab leaders in the Middle East to discuss peace is a page directly from Bible prophecy.

The ongoing peace process in the Middle East has risen to another level with the Arab League presenting a peace initiative to the Israelis for consideration. With the announcement by Israeli PM Olmert that Israel is ready to discuss the Arab peace plan and has invited the Arab leaders to come to Israel to do so is very newsworthy and prophetic significant. Add to that invitation by PM Olmert the fact that he offered the proposal to meet from a press conference in Petra and it sounds like a passage from the pages of Bible prophecy.

The ancient Jewish prophet Daniel wrote that the peace process would be in focus at the beginning of the seven year Tribulation, a time of Jacob's Trouble, that's Daniel 9:27 where it says that the coming false Jewish messiah, the Antichrist will set up such a peace. The rose red city of Petra will also be the location where God has provided a safe haven for the Jewish people in the last half of the coming time of judgment, that's Revelation 12:6 and Isaiah 63:1-6.

PM Olmert's call for peace talks while in Petra does indeed set the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
