(OPINION) ETH – Evangelist and Pastor Paul Begley has recently come out warning that the recent “Israeli Peace Deal” is playing into the passage of the bible that speaks of Israel striking a “covenant with many” with the nations of the Middle East, setting into motion events that will culminate with the rise of the Antichrist, the Second Coming of Christ and the end of the Age.
Many prophecy preachers are convinced these events have already been set into motion. Begley believes Israel has taken the first step towards securing the covenant with many. Begley is referring to the event that took place on August 13th, where a historic peace deal was made between Israel and the United Arab Emirates was revealed to the world.
This peace deal was Dubbed the “Abraham Accord”, and some pundits have dubbed it a positive step towards remediation in the conflict-ridden region. However, there are also some who believe something far more sinister and biblical in nature is brewing in Israel. According to Begley, prophecy is unfolding and the end times are coming.
He stated: “The covenant of many will ultimately breakdown, ok? “And it will all, because of the Temple Mount. “Even after they’re getting along fine for three-and-a-half years, even after the temple gets built, and millions of people are coming to see it, and everything looks like it’s going to work out, the Antichrist, the Antisemitic, the hatred of Israel, and the hatred of Christianity – Lucifer’s hatred of God.
“Remember guys, the covenant with many will only accelerate the war between Lucifer and Jesus Christ, as Lucifer the son of the morning will try to prevent the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. “But he will fail, and the battleground – just outside Jerusalem. Get ready, it’s coming.”
The temple mount in Jerusalem will play a critical role in the “End Times”, as scripture states it will be taken over by the Antichrist who will falsely declare himself the Messiah. However, the anticipation for a Third Temple is accelerating and efforts are in place to secure its future.
Begley believes this will be a major point of contention between Israel and its allies in the Middle East. He went on to say it is simply a matter of time before more Arab states join the Abraham Accord, leading directly to the covenant with many.
He said: “Israel is going to enter into a covenant with many, and the Bible says they’re going to do it. It’s in the Book of Daniel, 9:27.” Daniel 9:27 reads: “He will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’ “In the middle of the ‘seven’ he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. “And at the temple, he will set up an abomination that causes desolation until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.”
