Israel’s Peace Process in Prophecy

Since 1978, the Jews have given the Sinai Peninsula, the Gaza Strip, Jericho, Bethlehem and other West Bank territories back to the Arabs. Despite these compromises made in the pursuit of peace, Israel today is still under attack.

Did you know that Israel’s failed peace process was prophesied?

The Prophet Hosea called the failed peace process, “Judah’s wound.” In Bible prophecy, Judah refers to the nation we know today as Israel. The prophecy in Hosea 5:13 reads, “When Ephraim saw his sickness, and Judah saw his wound, then went Ephraim to the Assyrian ….” The Hebrew word for “wound” means “binding up,” or a “remedy.” Gesenius’ Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon says the term is used figuratively and applies to “a remedy applied to the wounds of the state.” In other words, the remedy Judah employs to solve its number one problem is actually a wound.

Hosea 5:13 is an end-time prophecy, and the term “wound” is discussing some sort of fraudulent deal or process—something like relinquishing land in exchange for the mere promise of peace. Bible prophecy says Israel will recognize its wound and will turn to Germany for help.
