In this week’s 5 minute update, we focused on:

1) The current status of the Israel / PLO peace process
2) The prospects for war with Syria and Iran

The Palestinians continue to say that depending upon the response to the letter given to Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on April 17, the Palestinians will continue  their efforts to seek  recognition of a PLO state at the United Nations. The Palestinians have said that they will give Israel one month to respond to their demands. Meanwhile, Israel have decided to have early government elections. They are expected to be on September 4. The Israeli elections were scheduled for October, 2013. The scheduling of early elections will make it unlikely that Israel will attack Iran prior to the early elections in September.

An agreement to divide Jerusalem and establish a PLO state is a tribulation event.

The United Nations / Arab League peace plan proposed by Kofi Annan to stop the fighting between the Syrian government and the opposition is not working. Russia blames the government opposition for the continued violence. The United States is now saying that if the peace plan does not work that a new approach is needed to try to remove Bashar Assad from power.

A war with Syria where Damascus is destroyed (Isaiah 17)  is a tribulation event.

The Obama administration say that they may support dropping a demand that Iran halt uranium enrichment if Iran agrees to other restrictions. U.S. officials say they may agree to allow Iran to continue enriching uranium up to 5 percent purity, the outside limit for most civilian uses, if Iran agrees to unrestricted inspections, rigorous oversight and other measures the United Nations has demanded to reduce the nation’s ability to develop a nuclear bomb. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said it will resume discussions with Iran on May 14-15.  Iran is saying that they are hopeful that a framework can be agreed upon where they can continue to enrich uranium. However, Iran is not yet ready to allow the IAEA to inspect and shut down its nuclear facilities. The United States say that they can attack and destroy the Iranian nuclear program in 3 weeks.

A US war with Iran is a tribulation event.

From a Biblical prophetic perspective, the reason why the God of Israel would allow these events to happen is because it will result in the end of the exile of the house of Jacob and the reunification of the 12 tribes of Israel (Ephraim and Judah).

We will to be “watchmen on the walls of Jerusalem” and we will not rest until the God of Israel makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth (Isaiah 62).

Shalom in Yeshua the Messiah,
