Isaiah 28:14) “Wherefore, hear the word of the Lord, ye scornful men, that rule this people who are in Jerusalem. 15) Because you have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement , when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us; for we have made lies our refuge and under falsehood have we hid ourselves……18) And your covenant with death shall be annulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.”
Isaiah describes the dreadful conditions and details of a soon coming covenant an American president will establish for the Middle East. Reading through Isaiah is like reading the newspaper today. Peace is near for Israel. But Israel will believe the American antichrist rather than Jesus Christ, and will suffer immensely for it. Israel’s leaders will scorn and mock God’s Jewish prophets in Israel who will be exposing the peace treaty as the devil’s lie and warning of God’s impending judgment for rejecting Jesus the Messiah. Israel will be overrun by the overflowing Russian-Arab armies within 1230 days, after they have signed the covenant. For God will cause them to attack to cancel the agreement of compromise.
Why will this peace covenant not last? Isaiah says the leaders of Jerusalem built this peace plan on the wrong foundation. The parties to this covenant used the military-economic strength of the United States and Western Europe as the cornerstone for building peace. What blaspheme, when God has already placed in Israel the only cornerstone for true lasting peace, which is Jesus Christ the Lord. His death, burial, resurrection and imminent return is the only peace proposal God will listen to.
I want all who read this to understand that all those empires that attacked Israel were also destroyed by God. For Israel will always be God’s chosen and the apple of his eye. The same end will fall upon today’s nations that come to destroy Israel. God is going to establish a remnant of Israel who will rule the world with Jesus, from Jerusalem, when he returns to set up his millennial Kingdom.
