In a historic moment that left the world spellbound, Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently delivered a prophetic speech at the 78th session of the United Nations General Assembly. In this astonishing address, the significance of recent geopolitical developments was revealed, leaving no doubt that we are witnessing the fulfilment of ancient biblical prophecies. This address took place just one week prior to the brutal and horrific attacks that Hamas orchestrated in Israel, which further added to the fulfilment of biblical prophecy. One thing is for sure, Jesus is coming soon!
A dramatic parallel
What transpired during this speech has far-reaching implications that may reshape the entire Middle East, echoing the words of Moses over three millennia ago. Netanyahu began by referencing Moses, who spoke of two mountains, Mount Gerizim and Mount Ebal, representing blessings and curses, and how the choices made by the people of Israel would determine their fate. Netanyahu drew a parallel between that choice and the current moment, asserting that the world faces a similar decision between historic peace and prosperity or the horrors of terrorism and despair.
A warning from years back
Netanyahu’s address was a culmination of years of diplomatic efforts and vision. He reminded the world that he had long warned about the dangers posed by the tyrants of Tehran and expressed his belief in the possibility of peace between Israel and its Arab neighbours. He stressed that peace with the Palestinians should not be a precondition for peace with other Arab states, challenging the conventional belief that progress in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict had to precede broader regional peace.
Aligning with Ezekiel 38
What was truly significant about the address was Netanyahu’s assertion that an overwhelming majority of the Arab world seeks peace with Israel. This aligns with biblical prophecies, particularly those in Ezekiel 38, which predict a time of security and prosperity for Israel before significant geopolitical changes occur.
Peace treaties in the Middle East
The crowning achievement of Netanyahu’s diplomatic efforts, over the last few years, has been the Abraham Accords, which led to peace treaties with the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan, and Morocco. These accords marked a pivotal moment in history, fostering trade, investment, and cooperation across various fields, from commerce to medicine.
Netanyahu’s vision of peace
In his own words, Netanyahu shared his vision for the Middle East: “The Abraham Accords ushered in another dramatic change – it brought Arabs and Jews closer together. We see it in the frequent Jewish weddings in Dubai, in the dedication of a Torah School in a synagogue in Bahrain, in the visitors flocking to the Museum of Moroccan Judaism in Casablanca, we see it in lessons that are given to Arab students about the Holocaust. In the UAE, there’s no question – the Abraham Accords heralded the dawn of a new age of peace.”
A transformative Middle East
This geopolitical shift aligns with biblical prophecies of “unfenced cities” and sets the stage for the events described in Ezekiel 38. Netanyahu’s vision of a “new Middle East” echoed through the hall as he shared his belief in the potential for unprecedented economic prosperity in the region.
The promise and perils of AI
Netanyahu’s speech concluded with a forward-looking perspective on artificial intelligence (AI). He cautioned against the unchecked development of AI, emphasising the importance of ethical and responsible use. He painted a picture of a future where AI could solve some of humanity’s greatest challenges, from healthcare to transportation, but also underscored the necessity of preserving human values and empathy in the age of AI.
A call to action
In the closing moments of this address, Netanyahu invoked the timeless choice presented by Moses between blessings and curses. He called upon world leaders to join together, shape the great changes before them, and ensure that AI brings more freedom, prevents wars, and enhances the quality of human life.
We are living in the end times
As we reflect on this extraordinary moment at the United Nations, Benjamin Netanyahu unveiled a vision of a new Middle East, drawing from biblical parallels and geopolitical realities. His speech underscores the profound shifts in the region and the potential for a future marked by peace, prosperity, and technological advancements. As the world watches these developments unfold, it is evident that we are living in a time of historic significance, where the past, present, and future converge on the global stage.
A NEW MIDDLE EAST
This is an extract from the address, spoken by Netanyahu:
“To understand the magnitude of the transformation that we seek to advance, let me show you a map of the Middle East in 1948, the year Israel was established. Here’s Israel in 1948, it’s a tiny country, isolated, surrounded by a hostile Arab world. In our 70 first years, we made peace with Egypt and Jordan, and then in 2020 we made the Abraham Accords peace with another four Arab states.”
“Now look at what happens when we make peace between Saudi Arabia and Israel. The whole Middle East changes. We tear down the walls of enmity. We bring the possibility of prosperity and peace to this entire region, but we do something else. You know a few years ago I stood here with a red marker to show the curse of a nuclear Iran. But today I bring this marker to show a great blessing – the blessing of a new Middle East between Israel, Saudi Arabia, and our other neighbours. We will not only bring down barriers between Israel and our neighbours, but we’ll also build a new corridor of peace and prosperity that connects Asia through the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Israel, to Europe. This is an extraordinary change, a monumental change, another pivot of history.”
