Listen to Today's Program Play

Israeli President Shimon Peres has warned that a written peace agreement on Jerusalem will cause a world war, stating that there is now defacto peace in Jerusalem where people pray, live and work together peacefully, but putting that into writing could cause a world war to break out.

Israeli Knesset member and former Chief of Staff for the IDF, Shaul Mofaz says that the prospects of war is inevitable if through diplomatic moves, the UN declares a Palestinian state based on its own unilateral definition of its borders, this also would cause a major conflict in the region.

As world leaders work at bringing resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through the peace process, the whole process seems to be moving closer to a major conflict breaking out in the region.

Recent warnings from Israeli officials that the Middle East process could lead to a world war is right in line with the end times scenario that can be found in Bible prophecy.

Israeli President Shimon Peres has warned that if you put into writing the defacto peace now in place in Jerusalem, the result could be a world war. These statements from President Peres, somewhat of a dove on the peace process, should be heeded by all parties. The former Chief of Staff of the IDF, Shaul Mofaz also believes a unilateral declaration by the UN of a Palestinian state will be rejected by Israel and bring Palestinians into the streets which could lead to a major conflict in the area.

The ancient Jewish prophet Daniel wrote of this type of situation when he foretold of a world dictator, the Antichrist, putting into place a peace in the Middle East, Daniel 9:27. This short-lived pseudo peace would spark at least a regional war in the Middle East if not a world wide conflict, Daniel 11:40-44, Ezekiel 38, and Psalm 83. The presence of a Jewish state in the Middle East is the irritant that will indeed end in a war resulting from the so-called peace process.

There will only be true peace in the Middle East and world wide when the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ, comes back.
