Israeli PM Olmert has agreed to give up the entire Biblical and strategic heartland of Israel

According to a report in Arutz 7, an Israeli media source, PM Ehud Olmert has agreed in writing to hand over the entire Biblical and strategic heartland of Israel to the Palestinian Authority (PA) so that the Palestinians can establish their state of Palestine.

This report, based on Palestinian sources, says that Israel presented Mahmoud Abbas, the president of the PA, a draft of an agreement of principles that calls for most of the Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria to be demolished and the inhabitants to be expelled plus Israel agrees to re-divide Jerusalem giving the Palestinians a capital city and control of the Temple Mount.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

An Israeli agreement to hand over the Biblical heartland of the state of Israel is setting the stage for many facets of Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

Thirty-five hundred years ago, God gave the Jewish people the promised land as they crossed the Jordan River into what is today modern-day Israel. The Lord gave Joshua and the Israelites the center part of what is today is referred to as the West Bank, or Biblically known as Judea and Samaria. In fact, at the center of this geographical location God established the Jewish capital and had the Jews erect a tabernacle to house the Ark of the Covenant. Now, the Israeli government is preparing to give this Biblical heartland to the Palestinian people for their state.

This scenario is right out of Bible prophecy for the Last Days. Ezekiel, Obadiah and Malachi, all ancient Jewish prophets, warned that the Edomites, the Palestinian people of today would take the land that God had given the Jewish people, Ezekiel 35, Obadiah and Malachi 1. Ezekiel also wrote that God would give the Jews the land of their forefathers and that would happen just prior to the coming of the Messiah, Ezekiel 34, 36.

Bible prophecy does not reveal that an Israeli government would give the land up, but the present Israeli government's actions are indeed setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
