Pope Francis with Shimon Peres and Mahmoud Abbas
The Prophet Daniel foretold the day when the Prince of Rome would "confirm a covenant with many for one week," (Daniel 9:27). The week will be a week of years, or seven years. A seven-year covenant will be confirmed "with many" by the Prince of Rome. (For explanation, see Daniel's Seventy Weeks).

That Covenant will trigger the final seven years of prophesied events before the battle of Armageddon. It will include the rebuilding of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, the Abomination of Desolation (when the Assyrian Man of Sin will stand in the Holy Temple and cause it to be vacated for 42 months), the Mark of the Beast, the Great Tribulation, the Sixth Trumpet War, the sealing of the 144,000 chosen Jews, the Seven Vials of God's Wrath, the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, the First Resurrection and Rapture of the Church, the great and final Battle of Armageddon, and the inauguration of the 1,000-year Kingdom of Jesus Christ on earth in Jerusalem.

Therefore, the Confirmation of the Covenant in Daniel 9:27 will be an EPIC event! It will be the most pivotal event in human history heretofore. It will affect every man, woman, boy and girl on planet earth. That Covenant will announce the beginning of THE END - the last seven years before Jesus Christ appears.

Has that COVENANT just been CONFIRMED? Or, is it right now in the process? 

We need to know!!

On May 14, 2015, the Vatican Press Office, and "The Bilateral Commission of the Holy See and the State of Palestine" announced that the text of a formal agreement between the Vatican and the (officially non-existent) State of Palestine has been finalized and that  "the work of the Commission on the text of the Agreement has concluded." A Plenary Session, held at the Vatican, brought together the principal delegates of both the Holy See and the Palestinians.

An epic "treaty" is being sealed between the Vatican and the Palestinians.

The Agreement "deals with essential aspects of the life and activity of the Catholic Church in Palestine." The Roman Catholic "Church" has an enormous stake in all political developments in the Holy Land, whether it is under Israeli or Palestinian controls, because the R.C.C. owns and operates countless ancient, historical and modern properties in that land, as well as a significant constituency of Roman Catholics. Virtually all of the holy sites in Israel, especially those mentioned in the New Testament are owned and operated by the Roman Catholic "Church." Therefore, it is imperative that the R.C.C. protect its interests in advance of any potential political upheavals or changing-of-hands. Above all else, the Roman Catholic Church must not lose its hegemony in that part of the world. It is impossible that the R.C.C. will consider the interests of Israel ahead of its own interests, especially in matters of self-preservation.

The Holy See has been always been intensely concerned about the Middle East Peace Process, and ordinarily works as much as possible with all parties involved. But with decades of negotiations failing to resolve long-standing animosities between Israel and the Palestinians, the Roman Catholic Church at last found it necessary to preempt other international policymakers and force the situation to move in a direction that would protect Vatican interests in the region.

The Holy See and the Palestinians first came to a "Basic Agreement" in February, 2000, and last met officially at the Palestinian headquarters at Ramallah in February, 2014.

This new bilateral treaty is the Vatican's strongest yet defacto recognition that actually NAMES the non-existent State of Palestine. Previous Vatican documents addressed the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), which had been led by the late terrorist Yassar Arafat, so this is the first bilateral treaty with the so-called "State of Palestine."

By this treaty, the Roman Catholic Church is doing an end run around the United Nations, Israel, the United States, and all other interested parties to be among the first to officially recognize the State of Palestine as a legitimate entity. It also serves as the defacto terminus of all previous peace processes, including the multilateral negotiations led by the U.N. Quartet ( E.U., Russia, U.N, U.S., led by Britain).

The Vatican has effectively taken the lead in disregarding multilateral negotiations, which focused on fostering bilateral talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. The Catholic initiative effectively delegitimizes the stalled U.N.-sponsored peace process, the State of Israel, Israel's claims to Jerusalem as its undivided capital, Israel's claims to Judea (the so-called West Bank), and the huge Jewish population living in the "disputed" territories. The actual, self-serving Roman treaty with the Palestinians greatly intimidates all governments in the world to follow suit and recognize the State of Palestine.

At the United Nations, the State of Palestine has not been legally or officially declared. On November 29, 2012,  United Nations General Assembly resolution 67/19 was passed, granting  the Palestine Liberation Organization "non-member observer state" status.

Therefore, the Vatican's recognition is arguably the largest, most valuable, and most potent endorsement Palestine has ever received.

But now to the million-dollar questions:

Is the Vatican Treaty with the State of Palestine the prophesied COVENANT of Daniel 9:27?

Is the Vatican right now Confirming the Covenant that will trigger the final seven yeras of Daniel's prophecies?

"And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease..." Daniel 9:27.

There are at least THREE SPECIFIC CRITERIA for the Confirming of the Covenant.

1. It must be confirmed by the Prince of Rome (Romans were "the people of the prince that shall come" who destroyed Jerusalem in 70 AD, partially fulfilling Daniel's prophecy.)

2. The Pope/Vatican must confirm the covenant for SEVEN YEARS. In order for any treaty/resolution/covenant to qualify as the Confirmation of the Covenant, it must contain a seven-year statute of some kind. In the middle of the week (after 3.5 years), he will "cause the sacrifice and oblation to cease." (That indicates that the Pope of the Roman Catholic Church will be the power behind the Assyrian Man of Sin [Daniel 11:21-45; Isaiah 14:24-27; Micah 5:5] standing in the Third Temple, committing the prophesied Abomination of Desolation [Matthew 24:15; 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4].) Jesus will come at the end of the seven years to destroy Lucifer and the Man of Sin (Isaiah 14:13; Ezekiel 28:16;Revelation 20:1-3).

(The leader of the European World Government BEAST and the Roman False Prophet Pope will be cast into a burning fire: 
 "And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone," Revelation 19:20.

The Assyrian Man of Sin will be destroyed on the Temple Mount:
"The LORD of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand: That I will break the Assyrian in my land, and upon my mountains tread him under foot: then shall his yoke depart from off them, and his burden depart from off their shoulders. This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth: and this is the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations," Isaiah 14:24-26.)

3. The Prince of Rome must confirm the covenant "with many." This act will not be unilateral or bilateral. It must be multilateral. Many countries will likely be involved. That sounds like a covenant with the United Nations. The United Nations Security Council is likely to draft a final resolution declaring the State of Palestine.  Former U.S. Ambassador to Israel Martin Indyk has recently said that it is time for the United Nations to force the Palestinian State issue. (See this article: Martin Indyk: Friend or Foe of Israel?). I expect Martin Indyk to be a player in this final scenario. I also expect to see FRANCE - symbolized by the French Rooster - (the Wings of a Fowl in Daniel 7:6) to be a major force alongside Martin Indyk to FORCE A U.N. SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION  declaring the State of Palestine. All throughout Europe, and especially in FRANCE, Islamists are taking over. Massive immigration of Muslims is turning one European country after another into anti-Semitic enemies of Israel. Now that the U.S. President Obama has turned the U.S. into an enemy of Israel, the U.N. Resolution is likely to appear for a vote in the near future.

When you and I see this upcoming U.N. Security Council Resolution, I expect to see the Vatican quickly issue a formal R.C.C. endorsement of the Covenant which I believe will probably demand that Israel vacate the West Bank within SEVEN YEARS.

SUCH AN ENDORSEMENT BY THE VATICAN of a new or rewritten U.N. Security Council Resolution will very possibly qualify as the Confirmation of the Covenant. I have no doubts that all truly born-again students of Bible prophecy will quickly and easily recognize that we are seeing the long-prophesied Confirmation of the Covenant.

At THAT moment, we will realize that the SEVEN-YEAR CLOCK IS TICKING, and that we are 3.5 years from the Mark of the Beast and the Great Tribulation, and seven years from Armageddon.


ADDENDUM: (Added 5/21/15)

According to Russian news agency, the Palestinian Ambassador to Russia, Fayed Mustafa said,"The importance of the Vatican recognition of Palestine goes beyond the political or legal aspects as it encourages the Catholic countries across the world to recognize the independent state of Palestine." Therefore, by recognizing the State of Palestine, Pope Francis is effectually giving orders to Catholics around the world to recognize the State of Palestine. That naturally reaches into the statehouses and political capitals of the world via Roman Catholic politicians and heads of government.

In a separate article, Mustafa was quoted saying, "Saudi Arabia, Palestine, Morocco, Jordan, Egypt, Kuwait are the six countries that have been tasked with drafting a new resolution and setting the deadline for its submission. ...We told the French there was an Arab commission working on it, and invited France to coordinate its efforts with its members."
