Last week, President Trump announced that Sudan will begin the process of normalizing ties with Israel which would make it the third Muslim nation to do so as part of brokered peace deals in recent months.

Recently, the United States brokered diplomatic pacts between Israel and the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.

Israel and Sudan have been in a state of war for decades, Trump said from the Oval Office, so this peace deal is historic and good for both Sudan and for Israel.  

Jan Markell of Olive Tree Ministries, who hosts the “Understanding the Times” radio program, tells OneNewsNow the latest peace announcement caught her attention because modern-day Sudan is referred to as the ancient land of Cush in the Old Testament.

Biblical scholars believe the land of Cush, mentioned repeatedly in scripture, is named after the grandson of Noah.

What interests Markell, however, is that the land of Cush is listed in Ezekiel chapter 38 among the nations that will join Gog in its attack on Israel.

“I think if we were to look deeper into Cush,” she explains, “we would find that that is very likely Sudan, though some would translate it as Ethiopia. I have taught that it's both."

Markell, Jan (Olive Tree Ministries)Ethiopia, perhaps most famous for its terrible famine during the 1980s, is bordered on the north by Sudan and on the west by Christian-majority South Sudan.

Beyond biblical prophecies, Markell says the strong ties between the U.S. and Israel will go “down the drain” if Trump is not re-elected on Election Day.

“Look what happened under Obama-Biden. It was a catastrophe. We got the Arab Spring. We got the Iran nuclear deal,” Markell says. “Do we want to go back to that insanity? Well, half the country is okay with that. I don't get it but they are.”
