Jordan's King Abdullah says there is either peace now or there will be war in the Middle East next year

Jordan's King Abdullah, the first Middle East leader to meet President Obama at the White House, says America is putting together a very ambitious peace plan for the Middle East aimed at ending 60 years of conflict between Israel and the Arabs and the King is working to bring the parties together.

The king says failure to reach agreement could draw the world into a new Middle East war next year, a conflict between the Arab nations, the other Moslem nations and the Jewish state of Israel.

King Abdullah said the details will come out in the meetings President Obama will have with Israeli PM Netanyahu and PA President Abbas later this month.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The statement from Jordan's King Abdullah that it is either peace now or war next year in the Middle East is a page out of Bible prophecy for the Last Days.

During the meeting between US President Obama and Jordan's King Abdullah recently held at the White House, the two leaders started to develop a plan for a comprehensive peace agreement in the Middle East between the Jewish state of Israel and its Arab and Moslem neighbors. In recent days, King Abdullah has been very vocal about the urgency of this peace plan and in fact has made the dramatic warning that failure to bring the parties together and come to an agreement on a plan would mean war in the Middle East in the next 12 to 18 months.

This scenario, as I said, is a page out of Bible prophecy. The ancient Jewish prophets Daniel and Ezekiel wrote 2,500 years ago there would be an alignment of nations, Daniel 11:40-45, Ezekiel 38, that these nations would come to destroy the Jewish state of Israel. The nations mentioned by these two Jewish prophets include the Arab and Moslem nations in the Middle East today. Ezekiel 38:8, 11 reveals that this war will happen when Israel is dwelling in their land safely, after a peace treaty has been agreed to by all the parties.

Peace indeed is a precursor to the war in the Middle East according to Bible prophecy that will be fulfilled.
