The Europeans and Arabs are meeting today for a two-day conference:
EU, Arab League forge connections at first desert summit
24 February 2019
The broad agenda refers obliquely to discussions on “global and regional challenges.” …
That 24 of 28 EU heads of government or state are attending the summit is a sign of its success, according to EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini. Only France, Spain, Lithuania and Latvia sent foreign ministers to the Sinai desert peninsula. The number of heads of government, dictators, emirs or kings of the Arab League, which stretches from Mauritania in the west to Oman in the east, coming to Egypt is still not entirely clear. …
“We agree on 90 to 95 percent of issues,” Mogherini said, after a preparatory meeting between Arab and European foreign ministers. She said this is also the case regarding the position on the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. She explained that the agreed solution is to establish a Palestinian state that can exist parallel to Israel. Both states could have Jerusalem as their capital.
In this way, the EU and the Arab League are distancing themselves from the US administration’s position. US President Donald Trump sent a clear signal by transferring the US Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. https://www.dw.com/en/eu-arab-league-forge-connections-at-first-desert-summit/a-47662120
There are several points of interest in the above.
The distancing of the Arab League and EU from the US related to Jerusalem again indicates that the EU will be involved in ultimately brokering a deal in the region.
That is consistent with the following:
26 … And the people of the prince who is to come
Shall destroy the city and the sanctuary.
The end of it shall be with a flood,
And till the end of the war desolations are determined.
27 Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week;
But in the middle of the week
He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering.
And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate,
Even until the consummation, which is determined,
Is poured out on the desolate. (Daniel 9:26-27)
The above covenant/deal is confirmed by “the prince who is to come,” whose people were prophesied to destroy Jerusalem and the Temple. That happened 70 A.D. by an army led by Roman European general Titus. Hence the prince to come will also be European. This deal will be confirmed by the prince for one week, which is a seven-year feature. In other words, a temporary deal–it is broken at the mid-point, 3 1/2 years after it has been confirmed. Because of other passages in Daniel, this is believed to be a type of peace deal (see The ‘Peace Deal’ of Daniel 9:27).
When this deal is in place, many will believe that peace has come. But it will not last.
3 For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. 4 But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. (1 Thessalonians 5:3-4)
Destruction will come to the USA, Canada, and UK about 3 1/2 years after the deal in Daniel 9:27 is confirmed (see also Daniel 11:39; USA in Prophecy: The Strongest Fortresses).
The Bible also tells of other deals between the European and the nations of the Middle East and North Africa.
Notice two of them:
3 They have taken crafty counsel against Your people,
And consulted together against Your sheltered ones.
4 They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation,
That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.”
5 For they have consulted together with one consent;
They form a confederacy against You:
6 The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites;
Moab and the Hagrites;
7 Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek;
Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;
8 Assyria also has joined with them;
They have helped the children of Lot. (Psalms 83:3-8)
27 Both these kings’ hearts shall be bent on evil, and they shall speak lies at the same table; but it shall not prosper, for the end will still be at the appointed time. (Daniel 11:27)
So, two rather negative deals are discussed. One referred to as “crafty counsel” and the other where “they shall speak lies at the same table.” Verses prior to Daniel 11:27 show that the two kings above are the kings of the north and south.
The Bible shows that they will turn against each other:
40 “At the time of the end the king of the South shall attack him; and the king of the North shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter the countries, overwhelm them, and pass through. 41 He shall also enter the Glorious Land, and many countries shall be overthrown; but these shall escape from his hand: Edom, Moab, and the prominent people of Ammon. 42 He shall stretch out his hand against the countries, and the land of Egypt shall not escape. 43 He shall have power over the treasures of gold and silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt; also the Libyans and Ethiopians shall follow at his heels. (Daniel 11:27, 40-43)
Now it should be mentioned that other than Assyria (which refers to part of Europe; see Germany’s Assyrian Roots Throughout History) the nations listed in both Psalm 83 and Daniel 11:41-43 are those in the Middle East and North Africa, and that the reference to Edom is a reference to Turkey. They are part of an end time confederation called in the Bible the King of the South. The Beast of the Sea in Revelation 13:1-4, is a European power (cf. Daniel 9:26-27), and is called the King of the North in Daniel 11:40. The Bible shows both of these kings will make a deceitful deal in Daniel 11:27 as well as a destructive deal in Psalm 83:3-8. The deal in Psalm 83:3-8 will not end well for the USA or its British-descended allies (Daniel 11:39;USA in Prophecy: The Strongest Fortresses). The deal in Daniel 11:27 will not end well for the King of the South (Daniel 11:40-43).
Western nations, including the USA and EU have pushed the Muslim nations to get together, consistent with the list we see in Psalm 83 and Daniel 11:40-43, as well as Ezekiel 30:2-8. We recently putthe following video on our Bible News Prophecy YouTube channel:
For two weeks in November 2018, a joint-military exercise called ‘Arab Shield 1’ took place in Egypt. Some have wondered if this will lead to an ‘Arab NATO.’ Is this something the Obama and Trump administrations have pushed for? Is this consistent with biblical prophesies? What do followers of Islam want? What about a caliphate and the ‘Imam Mahdi? Has this type of Arab unity been promoted by American and European leaders? What territories will support the King of the South of Daniel 11? What peoples are involved in Ezekiel 30? Will Turkey betray the coming King of the South? Will Arab unity turn out well or disastrous for the Arab nations? Will Arab unity be in place by the time of the start of the Great Tribulation? Dr. Thiel answers these questions and more.
Here is a link to the sermonette video: Arab NATO and the Coming King of the South.
But, as Daniel 11:40 clearly points out, war will come between the Europeans and the Arabs. We also made a video on that before:
Is war really coming between the Arabs and the Europeans? What does Bible prophecy say about that? Do the Central Europeans (Assyria in prophecy) make a deal with the Arabs that will hurt the USA and its Anglo-Saxon allies? Do Catholic or Islamic prophecies discuss a war between Europe and Islam? If so, what is the sequence of events that the Bible reveals? Who does the Bible, Catholic, and Islamic prophecy teach will win such a war?
Here is a link to our video: War is Coming Between Europeans and Arabs.
Anyway, temporary cooperation between the Europeans and the Arab League & Turkey is prophesied in the Bible. US President Donald Trump is a factor in them cooperating more.
The desert conference going on between the Arab League and EU is showing that.
We are getting closer to the formation of the final King of the South of biblical prophecy.
