ROME - The Vatican has signed its first treaty with the " State of Palestine " & called for a two-state solution , in a move that drew immediate anger from the Israeli government. Israel warned that its future diplomatic relations with the Vatican could be damaged by the treaty, which it said " damages the prospects for advancing a peace agreement ". The treaty was agreed in principle last month & covers the activities of the Catholic church in Palestine. Archbishop Paul Gallagher, the Vatican's foreign minister, said at the signing that he hoped it could be a " stimulus to bringing a definitive end to the long-standing Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which continues to cause suffering for both parties ". He called for the resumption of negotiations with the aim of a two-state solution. " This certainly requires courageous decisions, but it will also offer a major contribution to peace and stability in the region," he said.

PROPHECY INSIGHTS - The Bible speaks of a latter day Roman ruler ( Pope ) making a treaty ( covenant ) with the enemies of the Jews. It marks the start of a final 7 year period of time ( the time of trouble ) that counts down to the crowning as king of Jesus in Jerusalem. The signing of this treaty (covenant) this week could well be the very one spoken on in Daniel 9:27. In a modern translation the verse reads like this “ The ruler will make a treaty with many people for a period of one set of seven, but after half this time, he will put an end to the sacrifices and offerings. And as a climax to all his terrible deeds, he will set up a sacrilegious object that causes desecration, until the fate decreed for this defiler is finally poured out on him.” Who is the ruler ? Well “ his people ” we are told in the ' previous verse ' are those who destroyed Jerusalem in AD70. The Romans ! The ruler is a Roman ruler. The treaty is with “ many ” people. “ Many ” refers to enemies of Israel.
DANIEL 9 v 26-27 - The end will come like a flood : war will continue until the end & desolations have been decreed. He will confirm a covenant ( treaty ) " with many " for one “ seven ”. In the middle of the “ seven ” he will put an end to sacrifice & offering. And at the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation , until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.’
