Trump and Middle East leaders Sept. 2020 -2The leader of a messianic Jewish ministry says the historic Middle East agreements signed this week could be heralding the coming return of the Lord.

Declaring "the dawn of a new Middle East," President Donald Trump on Tuesday presided over the signing of historic agreements between Israel and two Gulf Arab nations, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, that he hopes will lead to a new order in the region.

The bilateral pacts formalize the normalization of the Jewish state's already thawing relations with the two Arab nations in line with their common opposition to Iran and its aggression in the region.

Jan Markell, founder and director of Olive Tree Ministries and host of "Understanding the Times" on American Family Radio, says this has eschatological significance.

Markell, Jan (Olive Tree Ministries)"It says in Ezekiel 38 that in the last days Israel must be dwelling in peace and security," Markell cites. "As I watched the ceremony, I heard the terms 'peace and security' [and] 'peace and safety' over and over again. I think that's biblically significant. In Ezekiel 38, the context is Israel in the last days will be dwelling securely, peacefully, with no walls, no borders. But unfortunately, that's when the anti-Christ takes advantage of her."

While Markell thinks this is "an end-times phenomenon," she is encouraged that "some of this is heralding the soon return of the Lord."
