Hamas: Cease Fire Will Take Effect At 5:00 PM EST, Israel: Deal Not Finalized Yet

Declaring a “cease fire” before one has been agreed upon by both parties may be an intentional move on the part of Egypt and/or Hamas to vilify Israel as a group of war-mongering thugs who would rather see innocent Palestinian civilians die than agree to any truce. Ideally, there will be a long-lasting peace. But in the real world, there has never been and will never be any real peace between Israel and those who, because of the teachings of their self-proclaimed prophet, believe that the Day of Judgement will not come until they’ve nearly killed all remaining Jews

Ezekiel 13:9-10a, “My hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and utter lying divinations. They will not belong to the council of my people or be listed in the records of the house of Israel, nor will they enter the land of Israel. Then you will know that I am the Sovereign LORD. Because they lead my people astray, saying, ‘Peace,’ when there is no peace …”

Reuters – “Israel and militants from the Gaza Strip have agreed to an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire that will come into force at midnight local time, Hamas official Ayman Taha said, speaking to Reuters from Cairo.

‘An agreement for calm has been reached. It will be declared at 9.00 p.m. and go into effect at midnight,’ Taha said…

By Tuesday, 115 Palestinians, including 54 civilians, were killed since Israel began an air onslaught that has so far included nearly 1,500 strikes. Some 840 people have been wounded, including 225 children, Gaza health officials said.

Three Israeli civilians have also been killed and dozens wounded since the fighting began last week, the numbers possibly kept down by a rocket-defence system that Israel developed with U.S. funding. More than 1,000 rockets have been fired at Israel this week, the military said.” Read more.

Israel Insists on 24 Hours of “Calm” Before Agreeing to Any Truce – “Minutes after a Hamas official told Reuters that Palestinians and Israeli had agreed to an Egyptian-brokered cease-fire, a spokesman Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that no agreement had been reached yet. Mark Regev, the Israeli spokesman, told CNN that the negotiations are still going on… A short time later, an Egyptian official confirmed to Reuters that talks are still going on, but expressed hope that a deal could be reached in the next five hours, before midnight local time.” Read more.

    1Thessalonians 5:3 comes to mind. With that said, I am praying fervently for all involved, for God to show His Spirit.
