There is a report that says a 3 year intermediate peace treaty is under discussion, but Netanyahu is cool to the idea. The United States wants a peace agreement very soon. In the Bible there are multiple places where a 1260 day time period is mentioned when all the seals, trumpets, thunders, and the bowls judgments commence. After those things or some say during those things, the Coming of Christ occurs. There is a mention in Daniel 9:27 of a covenant that is broken. Whatever the case, we do not have the Antichrist on the scene a treaty. The 70th week of Daniel has to come to pass, and there is a 3 ½ year time period when these things will take place.
There are some, and I have to say I may be one of them, that believe the Ezekiel war happens prior to some sort of security agreement. In Ezekiel 38/39 there is mentioned a seven year period where weapons are burned, and this fits very nicely into that scenario. Some say it is at the midpoint of the 70th week of Daniel when this war will happen, and some say at the end. We can get into some very heated arguments over the timing, and really we will not know until it happens. What we do know is that it does happen. Russia has delivered sophisticated weaponry to Syria. Israel has to take action sometime in the future to secure its military advantage over its enemies. Iran is very happy to see Syria in the news because it keeps Israel from attacking Iran. Israel cannot attack Iran if Syria has weaponry that is at least equal to Israel. In Isaiah 17, someone takes very decisive action on Damascus. The city is unlivable in Isaiah, and this might happen as Israel has to retaliate stronger against the Damascus regime. A nuclear device over Damascus would be devastating, and could also be the hook to bring Russia into the mountains of Israel.
The Golan Heights is an area of land north of Israel which the borders Syria. It is disputed land. It is hilly and has hills and small mountains. Is this the area Russian troops and its allies are destroyed? Ezekiel states the axis of evil that will invade Israel in the last days are laid waste on the mountains of Israel? The devastation will be so severe in the Ezekiel invasion that it takes Israel 7 years to clean the residue from war. The account sounds like chemical or nuclear devices were used during the conflict. Maybe both were used. The events of Ezekiel are being set up. If this is the moment, everything is falling in place. The only one who truly knows is the Father.
His knowledge should comfort us. He knows what will happen today, tomorrow, and the days to come. Trust in the one who knows all things. He loves you, and looks out for you. He chooses to not stop the sufferings of this world because it is what man has decided. He also does not stop His blessings because it is what He has decided. Have a blessed day.
This is a general statement, I said. What should be done in the near future? "We seek an interim agreement," Lapid replied. According to him, striving for a final peace agreement is impractical. Israel should therefore agree to the establishment of a Palestinian state with temporary borders. A state with temporary borders? I was puzzled, as the Palestinians had rejected this concept out of hand. "They rejected it because they feared the temporary would become permanent," Lapid said.
In order to bring the Israelis and Palestinians back to the negotiation table, Obama must ratify former President Bush's letter to former Prime Minister Sharon – the letter which led Israel to adopt the American "road map" for peace. At the same time, Lapid said, Obama must set a timeframe for talks on the permanent borders – three years from now. This way, Lapid explained, the temporary Palestinian state will really be temporary.

The Obama administration denounced Russia on Friday for providing Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime with anti-ship missiles, saying the weapons would only worsen a war that Washington and Moscow have been promising to work together on stopping.
Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, criticized what he called an "unfortunate decision that will embolden the regime and prolong the suffering." He spoke at a news conference after the New York Times reported that Russia recently delivered an advanced version of Yakhont anti-ship cruise missiles to Syria.
"It's ill-timed and very unfortunate," Dempsey said.
