Will Benny Gantz Make a Deal with the Antichrist?
Israel’s likely new leadership change coincides with the beginning of the EU’s next 7-year contract with Israel, which is prophesied in Daniel 9:27. Furthermore, Israel’s center-left bloc, led by Benny Gantz, is far more likely to entrust their security to someone else, something which Netanyahu would never do. All of this coincides with a giant European Union military integration push, which could lay the groundwork for the EU guaranteeing Israel’s security for 7 years, under certain conditions.
It looks like Netanyahu has finally lost hold of Israeli politics. At the current projections, the center-left Blue and White group has a 2 seat lead over the conservative Likud party, led by current Prime Minister Netanyahu. This ends his 10 year hold on Israeli politics. During his tenure, he was known for his emphasis on Israel’s safety and security. He said in one speech that he could not outsource this to others. However, we know from Isaiah 28:15 that the rulers of Israel will indeed do this. They seem to make a military pact with the Antichrist, which guarantees their protection:
Because you have said, “We have made a covenant with death,
and with Sheol we have an agreement,
when the overwhelming whip passes through
it will not come to us,
for we have made lies our refuge,
and in falsehood we have taken shelter”; (Isaiah 28:15 ESV)
Elsewhere, it says that the Antichrist “deserts” the flock of Israel, who he was supposed to shepherd:
Woe to my worthless shepherd, who deserts the flock! May the sword strike his arm and his right eye! Let his arm be wholly withered, his right eye utterly blinded! (Zech. 11:17 ESV)
These are the main reasons that theologians believe that the Antichrist’s 7-year contract is a contract of protection for Israel:
And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week,[a] and for half of the week he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator. (Daniel 9:27 ESV)
Starting in 2007, the EU launched a cyclical 7-year contract with Israel and its other Mediterranean partners. Furthermore, this program is set to be merged with all the other foreign aid, into one big mega-fund, the Neighbourhood, Development, and International Cooperation Instrument (NDICI). This is going to start on January 1, 2021, and go for the duration of the EU’s budget, which is 7 years.
European countries are in the process of military unification. This may give them the capacity to offer security to someone else. Furthermore, all of this also coincides with major EU leadership changes. Furthermore, a person who has fulfilled three very specific prophecies about the Antichrist may be set to take charge of EU defense efforts, albeit by a backdoor. (See Part 1 and Part 2 of the series “Proof that Jesus is Coming Soon” to get the full scoop).
The Blue and White group takes a more egalitarian stance on the prayer at the Western Wall. Perhaps they would set up something like that for the Temple Mount, especially in the aftermath of a war like Isaiah 17. This may also be in the terms for any security arrangement with Israel.
The US peace plan has been greatly hyped. However, I don’t personally think much of anything will come of it. It is the Antichrist of the end times Roman Empire who makes this covenant. Just like every other American peace deal in history, it will probably fall apart. However, lead Antichrist candidate, Javier Solana, has said that the EU should actively counteract the US plan, since it may nullify the two-state solution.
Come Lord Jesus!
Update September 26, 2019
Well it looks like Netanyahu gets the first shot at forming a government. He has a few weeks to do it. Apparently this is the option that Gantz preferred. Gantz figured Netanyahu would be more likely to fail the first time around. If Netanyahu fails, Gantz will probably get a chance to do the same. If neither can do it, it will go to another election.
