The Original Peace Treaty between Israel and her neighbors was made on March 26, 1979,
37 years ago as of March 2016. That treaty is known as "the Camp David Peace Accords".
In Daniel 9:27 it tells us that that covenant will be confirmed with many for one "week"
("Week" meaning a group of seven years, not consecutive, we feel. )
"And he will confirm the covenant ( the 1979 treaty already made with Israel )
with many for one week :
and in the midst of the week ( we are now in the long midst of the gap of time )
he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease".
Israel and the West share military dependence.
Israel was forbidden and warned not to make any treaties or covenants with foreign nations. Deuteronomy 7:2 and Exodus 23:32.
The first 3 and 1/2 years of Daniel's " 70th week" began on March 26-1979 and lasted 42 months until
September 26-1982. It was during that time that Israel entered into political, economic and military co-operation with a foreign nation, the United States of America.
That co-operation opened the door of Israel's vulnerability and is even now steering the rest of Israel's destiny toward foreign takeover.
On September 26, 1982 foreign forces were substituted for Israeli forces in Lebanon.
This joint military-venture was unprecedented in all of their history.
This took place on the Eve of Yom Kippur 1982.
(exactly 42 months from the date of signature of the Camp David Peace Accords)
This was all that was necessary for future mutual engagement.
We believe that from March 26, 1979 until September 26, 1982 was the first 3 and 1/2 years of Daniel's last "week" . The word used for "week" is shabuah, meaning a bundle of seven ... (years). Therefore the first 3 1/2 years are already completed, and only the last 3 and 1/2 years of the Great Tribulation remain.
Then---- just like the 69 prophetic years of Daniel was separated by a long GAP of years to the 70th "week" ---- then here also the 70th "week" too is being separated by a long GAP of time. This follows the former prophetic pattern of the 69 weeks-- separated by GAPS of time.
FAST FORWARD TO TODAY
A false messiah has ALREADY MEDIATED WITH Israel, under the guise of peace and security. (1979).
Will this same person be the fulfillment of Revelation 17 as the Eighth King ?
When this Eighth King returns to political power, he will NOT befriend Israel, but will denounce her, thus beginning the last 3 and 1/2 years
of this era, known as the GREAT Tribulation ( please see Matthew 24: 21 and Revelation 2:22.)
Whoever this person is, he must fulfill Rev. 17: 8 and 11, which states that this person
" was, is not, and yet is."
This person has to have been:
1. a prominent political figure at the time of the Camp David Treaty of 1979
2. then he would have retired from public office for a time
3. then he would return to great political prominence.
And when he returns, he will decide how the details of the former treaty (covenant) would be implemented in present day Israel (now ).
Israel is earmarked to have 7 designated years at the end of the Church Age which will bring Messiah back to earth. These 7 years need not be continuous, just as the first 69 "weeks" of 7 years are not continuous. In fact, the first set of 69 "weeks" point out the fact that years earmarked for Israel are separated into divided portions, with gaps of unmarked years between the partitions.
Here is a prominent example in Scripture of a Messianic Prophecy set apart or divided by a wide gap of 2,000 years:
"A child is born, a son is given and the government shall be upon His shoulder"
There is 2,016 + years of a time-gap between the time that Jesus was born, and until the time He reigns on earth for 1,000 years from Jerusalem... within that single verse. One verse, yet two completely different segments of time.
The first 3 and 1/2 years concern Israel ONLY; that part of Daniel's prophecy is written in Hebrew and is not specifically for Gentiles.
Chapter 9 of Daniel is written completely in Hebrew. Half of Daniel is written in Chaldee, and the last half is written in Hebrew.
The last prophetic 7 years set apart for Israel is also divided into two segments of time, as we see it. The 7 years are not continuous, but rather are divided into two periods of 3 and 1/2 years each --- with an indeterminate GAP of years in the midst.
The final 3 1/2 years are known as "the Great Tribulation". At the end of that time, the True Messiah--Jesus of Nazareth-- will be ushered in.
We know this to be a fact from the following statement:
"And except those days be shortened, there should no flesh be saved". Matthew 24:22
We cannot shorten the 7 years designated for Israel's last prophetic years. They are already incorporated in Scripture and can not be taken away.
But they can be cut in half and placed at different intervals, so that when the culminating events start, they do not overtake Israel.
Also in all of the Book of Revelation there is never mentioned a 7 year period. There is only mentioned a 3 and 1/2 year time sequence. God didn't forget the 7 years. Rather He is pointing out the fact that the Book of Revelation deals mainly with the last 3 1/2 years of the era known as the "Great Tribulation".
The Book of Revelation begins at mid-Tribulation, meaning "in the midst" of the GAP of time between September of 1982 and until "he causes the sacrifice and oblation ( Jewish observance ) to cease", thus opening the first of the 7 seals of Revelation Chapter Six.
Many Bible interpreters have tried to juggle a 7 year sequence of events into the Book of Revelation, but none of it fits logically. Too many questions show a "misfit" of years. Everything only "fits" and makes sense, when Revelation is explained in a 3 and 1/2 year time frame, the last 3 and 1/2 years of the Great Tribulation.
So we can conclude then, from the above obvious reasons, why there are only 3 and 1/2 years left
( from the time that the abomination-of-desolation ARMY appears at the holy place (Temple
Mount ) , to the end of this Age. They are earmarked for Israel prophetically:
The original Peace Treaty [ March 26, 1979 ] started the 70th week of Daniel 9:25, and there can be no other "starts".
Many have tried to say that Oslo started the countdown, then it was Wye, then it was Wye II etc. etc. and all of these failed. But the original Treaty still remains the standard by which all dealings in the Mid-East hang upon ,
and which will soon be confirmed among many nations.
We are presently within the GAP time. We are also very near the time of the confirming of the original CDPA-covenant (Camp David Peace Accords, March 26, 1979). The final countdown of the last 3 and 1/2 years begins when we see a foreign force STAND on the Temple Mount . ( Daniel 12:11) ("standing in the holy place"..."where it ought not").
Luke 21: 20 uses the word "army" for this referance.
The final countdown does not begin when the covenant is confirmed.
Scripture is very specific on this. The countdown begins
when the foreign forces are standing in the Holy Place. Matthew 24:15--22
Let's take a closer look at the
Original Covenant-Accords -- Camp David 1979.
THE MAN ON THE WHITE HORSE
First 3 1/2 years....A WHITE HORSE (Rev. 6:2)
NOTE: In Rev.6:2 the white horse is NOT given an Ordinal number (such as "first"). That is because the man on the white horse shows up twice: initially , and then also later on (after the Gap-time) to CONFIRM the covenant with many. So actually there is more than one appearance of the man on the white horse. ( In Revelation 6, he appears at opening-tribulation and then later, just before the Great Tribulation-- "in the midst" of years.)
"the beast that was , and is not, and yet is" Rev. 17: 8 + 11
meaning: "the beast that was" (someone who held political office years ago),
"and is not" ( does not act as a designated political figure; only a "citizen")
"and yet is" (becomes politically dominant in the last 3 and 1/2 years of this age.)
The GAP of time "in the midst" of years:
As of Spring 2016, there has been a 33.5 year interim GAP of time ---
(September of 1982 until March 26, 2016)
In September of 2016, there will be 34 years of gap time.
We are now waiting for the next shoe to drop.
tells us in Matthew 24:15 that when the Abomination of Desolation
(foreign army) stands in the holy place (Temple Mount) that
THEN---and ONLY then--- can the Great Tribulation begin.
( Matthew 24:21...Daniel 12:11).That is when the countdown will begin, as we see it.
DANIEL 12:11,12 --- Great Tribulation lasts 1, 290 days
Daniel tells us that from the time that the desolating army (abomination of desolation) is SET UP,
until the end of the Great Tribulation period is 1,290 days .
See here for calculation http://hopetotheend.com/dan3.html scroll to "Number of days"
Quick Strike Forces Urged for the Military by Roberto Suro
Pentagon wants a strike force within 24 hours
"To move quickly when a crisis erupts, key combat units from all the armed services would be organized into
"Global Joint Response Forces" capable of setting up operations in a hostile environment within 24 hours, according to the proposal presented by retired Air Force Gen. James P. McCarthy, who headed Rumsfeld's review panel on the transformation of conventional forces.
These units would be designed to gain control of a trouble spot within four days and bring a conflict to a decisive resolution within 30 days. In humanitarian emergencies, military units would start handing over operations to civilian contractors and nongovernmental organizations after 30 days, McCarthy said.
The emphasis on overseas deployments, military interventions and the use of troops on humanitarian missions runs counter to some of Bush's campaign rhetoric last year, " http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A56625-2001Jun12.html
So basically, this could be what is next on the horizon, based on Daniel 9:27 :
1. Confirming the Original Camp David Peace Accords of 1979 with the major super powers and leaders of the Mid-East.
2. Announcing an arrival time for foreign troops to be in the city of Jerusalem.
3. Canceling monetary commitments (oblations) to Israel and the Palestinians.
Israel was to lend to the nations. She was never to receive funds or aid of any kind from other nations. Her help was to come from God alone. Deuteronomy 28:12 and Deuteronomy 15:6.
4. The actual placement of a foreign army on the Temple Mount, and nullifying all existing patrol forces in the Temple area.
The Foreign army will stand in the Holy Place ( like Pompeii ) , to 'secure' the area...."Security" Forces (for safety).
"For when they shall say "Peace and Safety" 1 Thessalonians 5:3 , then sudden destruction shall come upon them" -- 1 Thessalonians 5:3
Carter: US must play a greater Mid East role
Carter said peace negotiations should be based on the Camp David accord principles.
"That agreement was signed [ 37 ] years ago [ Ed: as of 2016 ] and was founded on the basis of a true and comprehensive peace in the Middle East. Former Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin signed then that Israel would withdraw from the Gaza Strip and the West Bank," Carter said.......
"The presence of the troops is necessary for the confidence between Israel and Egypt and for the continuance of the Middle East peace process," Carter said.

LAST 3 1/2 YEARS
The countdown of 1,290 days begins only when the foreign troops are standing in the Holy Place. (Western Wall Plaza-Temple Mount Area ) "standing where it ought not " Mark 13: 14
That is how we see it. But only time will tell.
So far, Israel has been ensnared politically, economically and militarily. She soon will be
ensnared religiously through the blasphemous deceptions of the False Messiah, (antichrist, the Beast) as he usurps the role of their real and true Messiah, Yeshua- Jesus.
" I AM come in My Father's name and you receive Me not;
if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive." John 5: 43.
ARK OF THE COVENANT -- RELIGIOUSLY ENSNARED
" Little children, keep yourselves from idols" 1 John 5:21
Why does John the Revelator say that about our times ?
What particular relevance does that verse have for us today ?
Do not give heed to any "ark of the covenant" Jeremiah 3:16
"And it shall come to pass, when ye be multiplied and increased in the land, in those days, saith the LORD, they shall say no more,
" The ark of the covenant of the LORD:
neither shall it come to mind:
neither shall they remember it;
neither shall they visit it;
neither shall that be done any more" Jeremiah 3:16
Please see http://hopetotheend.com/lost.html
Where is the only ark of the covenant ( mercy seat, throne of grace ) that counts ?
Up in Heaven !
Please see Hebrews 4:16 and Hebrews Chapter 9 for confirmation. www.blueletterbible.org
Rev. 11:19..."And the temple of God was opened in Heaven, and there was seen in His temple the ark of His testament" (also Rev. 15: 5 )
The Ark now in Heaven pre- existed from before the foundation of the earth---long before Temples were built in Jerusalem.
Please see Exodus 25:9,40; Hebrews 8:5; 1 Peter 1:18-21.
Jesus did not shed His precious Blood for artifacts. He shed it for you and me, to give us a fleshly heart-- and not a stony heart--- and to give us a new spirit. Ezekiel 36:25-27; and Hebrews 10:22
Jesus shed His Blood for persons, not things.
The earthly Ark is but a symbol only and has lost its function, now that Redemption has taken place. It is a hollow empty shell now devoid of application.
"Let no man deceive you by any means...."and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped;
so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God."
2 Thessalonians 2: 3,4
The only way someone can show himself as God by sitting, is to sit on the Ark of the Covenant, the lid of the mercy seat. That is the sacrilegious blasphemy that will occur, as we see it showing utter contempt and disrespect.
Southern Wall Excavations
We are not to worship idols ( relics)
What about the Shroud of Turin ? The Shroud of Turin by J. Hampton Keathley III
The Shroud www.execulink.com/~wblank/shroud.htm
"Even him, ( the false prophet ) whose coming is after the working of Satan
with all power and signs and lying wonders
And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish;
because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
And for this cause God shall send them STRONG DELUSION,
that they should believe a LIE:
That they all might be damned who believed not the truth,
but had pleasure in unrighteousness."
2 Thessalonians 2:9-12
Both of these artifacts ( The Ark of the Covenant and the Shroud of Turin) pertain to BLOOD. The elitist-deceivers will claim to clone DNA from this blood ( or lineage ) to perpetuate a belief in a False Messiah.
"Let no man deceive you". Matthew 24.
Let's remember that the Ark of the Covenant had only the blood of animals on it, and that the Shroud of Turin is Not the shroud that was wound around Jesus at His death. He had a separate head linen John 20:7.
If they are looking for Jesus' blood, it is on the Mercy-Seat up in Heaven.
Why is God so adamantly opposed to relics? Because we idolize them and attribute powers to them that are in actuality, demonic. We are prone to seek idolatry by our sin-nature. We crave something or someone to worship, other than the Living God.
The False-Messiah blasphemously appropriates the Messianic Scriptures to himself.
"I AM come in My Father's name, and ye receive Me not:
if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive." John 5:43
Our Lord loves His people and cautions them: "Let no man deceive you" Matthew 24:4
"Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the 1,335 days."....Daniel 12:12
We understand the 1,290 days as being the Last 3 1/2 years of the Great Tribulation.
But what about this 1,335 days?
1, 335 days subtract 1, 290 days leaves 45 days unaccounted for. Please see
hopetotheend.com/dan3.html "Numbering of days" ( scroll to bottom) for a fuller explanation.
This is the time-line, as best we can discern. When He comes, we'll all know. The important thing is to keep our eyes on Yeshua-Jesus.
Who will confirm the original Camp David Peace Accords ? The EU powers in Belgium are seeking a meeting of the major powers to enact peace in the Mid-East. Will they call in the major superpower-leader who convened the original Accords between Menachem Begin and Anwar Sadat back in 1979? Time will tell
The Original Camp David Peace Accord was ratified by the Israeli Knesset on May 4, 1979.
