Tracking Peace Deals: A Fruitless Activity [Daniel 9:27]


Is John Kerry the Antichrist? Uh, no.

Is John Kerry the Antichrist? Uh, no.

Making a peace deal between Israel and the surrounding nations is not the only requirement for Antichrist candidacy.

(Excerpt taken from “Is Ezekiel 38-39 a Pre-Armageddon Invasion of Israel?“)

All of these things, and especially the prophetic geography, are just some of the reasons why we don’t have to watch everyone who steps onto the world stage trying to make peace between Israel and the surrounding nations. This is an unwarranted and fruitless activity and only serves to muddy the waters.

Even if peace is made between Israel and the surrounding nations tomorrow, that doesn’t mean the one who made it will be the Antichrist. Just making peace isn’t enough. Anyone can seek to make peace between Israel and the surrounding nations and some may be successful, but that’s not all Scripture says about it. There are four additional requirements (at least) that help us to identify the right peacemaker:

  1. Daniel’s north kingdom must already exist encompassing parts of Turkey/Syria/Lebanon/Iran/Iraq [Daniel 11]
  2. He must rise to power in this north kingdom; He must come from the area known today as Turkey [Daniel 11; Ezekiel 38:1-4]
  3. A ten-kingdom Islamic Caliphate must already exist (with the north kingdom being one of the ten) [Daniel 7:8, 7:24]
  4. He must seize two additional Islamic kingdoms thereby securing his reign over the Caliphate [Daniel 7:8, 7:24]

Peace comes after the peacemaker is ruling the Caliphate. He would have no authority to make peace if he wasn’t already ruling. The rule of the Caliphate comes after he has risen to power in and is ruling a reunited north kingdom. (I also want to add here that there are those who believe the Antichrist will be Jewish and so go about watching Jewish leaders trying to make peace with the surrounding nations. Consider, if peace is made between Israel and the surrounding nations, naturally a Jew will be have to be the recipient of the deal on behalf of Israel. That doesn’t mean he is the Antichrist. In other words, two people, one from each side, are required to make a treaty and prophetic geography tells us which one to watch.)

The Bible is very specific for our benefit. Let’s take advantage of it! These events plus this entire study is what makes saying things like “Barack Obama is the Antichrist” incredibly irresponsible. This only contributes to the deception to which the Church has already fallen prey concerning Islam. I’ve even read that John Kerry is the Antichrist because he’s been trying to make a peace deal at the time of this writing! Where will it end? By this logic, you could propose a peace treaty and it could be ratified which would make you a candidate for the Antichrist! How does that make you feel, Christian?

(Excerpt taken from “Is Ezekiel 38-39 a Pre-Armageddon Invasion of Israel?“)

Daniel 9:27 NASB  And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; and on the wing of abominations will come one who makes desolate, even until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who makes desolate.”

  1. Revelation 11: 7, 17:8 and 9:11 identify the beast. No person living on earth at this time fits that description.
