In a farewell interview, the outgoing Prime Minister of Israel, Ehud Olmert, said that in order for Israel to have peace with the Palestinians, the Jewish state must give up the Old City of Jerusalem and its biblical heartland. This heartland is Judea and Samaria, often referred to as the West Bank, and the Old City includes the Temple Mount.
The "lame duck" PM also said that in order to make peace with Syria, the Israeli government must give up the Golan Heights. Many in the military say that the Golan is essential for keeping the peace and protecting the Jewish residents of northern Israel.
Opposition political leaders in Israel say that Olmert's plan would allow for the establishment of Iranian and Hamas bases in the Golan Heights and the area of Judea and Samaria - the heart of the Jewish state.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
For the Prime Minister of Israel to offer to give up the Golan Heights, Judea, Samaria, and the Temple Mount in Jerusalem in order to make peace with the Syrians and the Palestinians is indeed setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
The outgoing Prime Minister of Israel, Ehud Olmert, says that in order to make peace with two of its worst enemies the Jewish state must give up its heartland Judea and Samaria, and the Golan Heights, strategic to security in northern Israel. This offer made by PM Olmert contradicts the Bible and the promises that God made to the Jewish people.
The Abrahamic Covenant, the Land Covenant, and the Davidic Covenant - God's promises to the Jewish people - all state that Israel will be given the land of their forefathers and this land will belong to the Jewish people forever.
Ezekiel 34 reveals 18 times that God will bring the Jews into their land in the Last Days. Ezekiel 36, some 35 times, says that the land will belong to the Jewish people. Ezekiel 36:22 states that God does this for His holy name's sake. Ezekiel 35 says that the Edomites, the Palestinians of today, will kill the Jews and endeavor to take the land.
