3 1/2 Years After Signing Palestinian-Israeli Peace Accord
By Irvin Baxter
Never again! These are the words that come to mind when we think of the six million Jews that were marched off to the concentration camps of Nazi Germany. When Hitler’s Holocaust comes up in discussion inevitably we hear the words—never again.
However, Jesus prophesied that another Jewish Holocaust is coming. He said it would take place in the West Bank or what has been referred to as the occupied territories. In the prophecy Jesus spoke of it by its biblical name, Judea.
The West Bank (Judea)
Foreseeing that the West Bank would be placed under Palestinian control by the coming Middle East peace agreement, Jesus prophesied about Jews that would live in the new Palestinian state as a Jewish minority. Jesus said that, 3 ½ years after the signing of the Palestinian-Israeli peace accord Jews would be subjected to a horrible slaughter.
There were no Jews in the West Bank (Judea) prior to the Six-Day War in 1967. Today there are 365,000 Jews living there. Jesus warned them that they would have to flee for their lives when they saw an event called the Abomination of Desolation. He said if they were on the housetop they should not even go down into their house when they heard the Abomination of Desolation had occurred. They should immediately hit the ground running. Why this warning? Jesus said, “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.”
