The Sovereign And His Possible Role In Providing A Capital For The Palestinian People

Introduction

I believe that a capital in Jerusalem for the Palestinian People MAY come at some time in future; but such a thing will ONLY come through announcement by the Sovereign of  Daniel 9:27, who is also the same Sovereign of Revelation 13:5-10.      

I … The EU may grant the Palestinian People defacto statehood without a capital being established.

Adrian Bloomfield of The Telegraph reports in article EU To Boost Status Of Palestinian Diplomats: the Foreign Office has confirmed that it and other EU member states are studying a proposal that would see Palestinian “general delegations” upgraded to “diplomatic missions” in a number of European capitals. But a Foreign Office spokesman said the upgrade did not “imply recognition of a Palestinian state,” adding: “We continue to believe that the creation of a sovereign and viable Palestinian State alongside a secure Israel is best achieved through negotiations.”

I comment that the sentence beginning with the word “but a” is doublespeak. Webster’s dictionary defines doublespeak with these words: evasive, ambiguous, high-flown language intended to deceive or confuse.

II … Deborah Sontag in May 21, 2000 New York Times article summarized the Middle East problem: “Jerusalem is rarely publicly discussed by Israeli or Palestinian leaders in anything but black-and-white terms. It is the ‘eternal, undivided capital’ of Israel, on the one hand, and the future capital of the Palestinian state on the other: seemingly irreconcilable concepts that have led any intelligent politicians to recommend that the issue be left unresolved in the current, supposedly final, peace talks”. And Haaretz relates on April 20, 2010: Lieberman: Jerusalem is our eternal capital, it will never be divided

III …Bible prophecy of Daniel 9:27 predicts that a third Jewish Temple will be constructed before the Lord’s return, and that the world’s Sovereign will one day, after the war of Ezekiel 38, establish a peace covenant between Israel and Arab nations; this is the one referred to in the press as the final peace talks; and in so doing, it is very likely that he will insist that an international peacekeeping force be present within both Israel and within Jerusalem, and at Israel’s borders as well.  

Yet the Sovereign will not fully honor that covenant, as he will break it after 36 months. “He shall confirm the covenant with many for one week”; here each day represents one year. This important phrase indicates that the event that starts the 70th week, the seven-year tribulation, is the signing of a seven-year covenant between the Sovereign and Israel.  The signing of the covenant begins the period called the Tribulation. At the halfway point of the Tribulation, which is three and a half years, the Sovereign will break this covenant with Israel with an event called “The Abomination of Desolation.” It is at this time that God provides a physical place of safety, that is a refuge, for a select group of saints. This also signals there is only three and a half more years remaining, before Christ returns to earth to set up His Earthly Kingdom, which will last for a 1,000 years.
It is a given that the covenant between the Sovereign and Israel will permit the Jews to rebuild their temple, where they will once again practice their sacrifices. Presently a red heifer to be used in ritual sacrifice is being sought, instruments are being implemented, priests are being prepared, and blueprints are being drafted toward this end.

Conclusion

The soonest I envision that the Palestinian people will have a physical capital will be when the Sovereign comes to occupy Jerusalem by announcing a middle east peace plan which starts what bible students refer to as the Great Tribulation; he may at that time grant them a capital.   

The sovereign of Daniel 9:27 is the same as Revelation 13:5-10
