With the tough rhetoric coming from the Obama White House towards Israel, PA President Mahmoud Abbas and other Palestinian officials believe they have a friend in the White House who can force Israel to withdraw to the 1967 borders including the city of Jerusalem and dismantle all the Jewish settlements, a plan Israelis believe would put the Jewish state in harms way.
The Palestinians are following with deep satisfaction, news about the deepening crisis between the government of Netanyahu and the Obama Administration, even believing Obama may push Netanyahu out of office.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
The Obama administration's pressure on the Israeli government to stop construction in the Jewish settlements and to dismantle them to the satisfaction of the Palestinians is a precursor to the End Times scenario that is found in Bible prophecy.
The statement that the Palestinian people finally have a friend in the White House has made the Palestinians very optimistic about the plans for a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital. The Obama administration is continuing to apply pressure on the Israeli government to stop all construction on the Jewish settlements and to prepare for dismantling the settlements to be replaced by a Palestinian state. This Palestinian state would take all the land Israel acquired in the Six Day War and make it their Palestinian state.
Should President Obama and the Palestinians be successful, a Palestinian state would be in the heart of the Jewish state, a state with borders the Lord told the prophet Malachi would be borders of wickedness, Malachi 1. Even as the Palestinians would build their state, the words of the prophet Ezekiel would come to pass that God would punish the Palestinians for taking land God had given to the Jewish people, Ezekiel 35. Another Jewish prophet, Obadiah, tells us that God will not allow the Palestinians to win in this conflict, but instead the Palestinians, the Edomites of biblical times, will be a people that have never been.
President Obama's actions are indeed setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
