The Geneva Peace Treaty:
A Sign of What's to Come
The 2003 Geneva Peace Treaty between Israel and the Palestinians is a proto
type of the peace treaty to come, and a wake up call to all believers. (The current "Quartet" Peace Treaty may well end up to be that actual final peace treaty prophesied to come, which would then be "confirmed" by the Antichrist. Only time will
tell.) In this study, we will especially look at the Geneva "symbolic" peace treaty numerically, for it aligns perfectly with the prophecy of Daniel 9:24-27. I believe that God has given this symbolic treaty to believers ahead of time to learn from
so that when the real treaty comes, we might understand the numeric readily so that we might prepare ourselves and others. The future one will probably be related to this symbolic one is some way as well, so that this symbolic treaty together with the actual one will serve
as a double witness to the fact that these things are on God's calendar, and are by no means chance.
The 490-years prophecy of Daniel 9:24-27
We will explain the following chart further as we progress.
Dan 9:24 Seventy weeks are decreed upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal
up vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most holy.
Dan 9:25 Know therefore and discern, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the anointed one, the prince, shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: it shall be built
again, with street and moat, even in troublous times.
Dan 9:26 And after the threescore and two weeks shall the anointed one be cut off, and shall have nothing: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be
with a flood, and even unto the end shall be war; desolations are determined.
Dan 9:27 And he shall make a firm covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease; and upon the wing of abominations shall
come one that maketh desolate; and even unto the full end, and that determined, shall wrath be poured out upon the desolate. (NAS)
444 BC + 490 + 490 + 490 + 490 + 483 + 7 + 3½ years
(cut short 3½ years?)
or 490 x 5, or 49 x 50 (50 jubilees)
444 BC to Spr. 2000 to Aut. 2010
The first 3½ years appear to be fulfilled in the 3½ years of Christ's ministry. There is a sense in which there are both 3½ and 7 years remaining on God's clock ("the time of Jacob's trouble"), depending on ones perspective.
Scholars are divided over whether Daniel 9:24-27 refers to Christ's 3½-year ministry or Antichrist's. I believe that the prophecy points to both.
The symbolic Geneva Peace Treaty was signed on two different days, 50 days apart. The first in Jordan, and the second in Geneva with great pomp and ceremony, (Tishri 16 and Kislev 6, 2003).
As said, the two dates of the Geneva Peace Treaty are 50 days apart. But it is important to observe that these two dates are aligned precisely 3½ years after the 49/50 days of Firstfruits to Pentecost, (Nisan 16 to Sivan 6, 2000). This
is the anniversary of when Israel received God's covenant on Mount Sinai, and it is also when the New Covenant was confirmed to the Church, by the resurrection of Christ and infilling of the Holy Spirit.
First fruits to Pentecost, (Nisan 16 to Sivan 6, 2000) plus 3½ years equals the two dates in which the Geneva Treaty was signed, (Tishri 16 and Kislev 6, 2003).
The Mount Sinai covenant commanded Israel to keep His commands, and to never make a peace treaty/covenant with any of nations that lived within her land. Her land was never to be divided up and given to foreigners! Not only is Israel transgressing with
this Geneva peace treaty, but more wickedly, Israel continues to reject their true Messiah, Jesus (Yeshua). The bible prophesies that one day Israel will receive a false messiah instead---the Antichrist---who will probably lead in confirming the final peace treaty
(according to Daniel 9), of which the Geneva treaty is a very close type.
Also, the New Covenant that Jesus inaugurated "in His blood" occurred on Passover, and then He verified it by His resurrection 3 days later
(Firstfruits), and then on Pentecost (Sivan 6) He confirmed the covenant in the sense that He wrote the law upon the
hearts of the disciples by the Holy Spirit when they were all filled with the Spirit; and the Church was born, (Acts 1).
Note the pattern: Israel was delivered from Egypt on Passover, (plus, "3 days sacrifice in the wilderness"), plus the 49/50 days more till Pentecost when the covenant of Moses was made in stone. Then, in the same way, Jesus' death
and resurrection on Passover and Firstfruits, then the New Covenant confirmed at Pentecost 49/50 days later (the same as at Mount Sinai). Now, 49 x 50 years after the prophecy of Daniel 9 (detailed
next), the same dates are again repeated. The Geneva covenant (which breaks God's covenants) is again signed on Firstfruits and Pentecost (up precisely 3.5 years from Nisan 16 and Sivan 6). Coincidence? Impossible!!! This is a great sign that God has given to
us! Are we awake!
God is declaring that the prophetic clock could well have started clicking again with this pattern, but it has been delayed for the sake of mercy.
Daniel 9:24-27, Peace Treaty
Those that know prophecy know that this future peace treaty is "confirmed" for seven years according to Daniel 9:24-27, but is broken in the middle after 3½ years.
The prophecy refers to a full 490 years (70 x 7, "seventy weeks"), but less a set of 3½ years (= 7 years). This prophecy was partly and initially fulfilled during the 3½ years of Christ's ministry. The 490 years began at the decree of Artaxeres
of Persia to Nehemiah in 445 or 444 BC. This was the decree that allowed Nehemiah to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. The 490 is further broken down into "7 x 7" + "62 x 7" + "3½ + 3½" = 490 years/days. Importantly, 49 (7 x 7) is
a jubilee in the bible, and it strongly suggests that this prophecy utilizes jubilee cycles within its makeup. Hence, 490 years is 10 jubilees. (The fact that Daniel had just prayed about the 70 years captivity also strongly suggests this, [Daniel 9]. God decreed 70 years
of captivity so that the land could catch up on its missing regular seven-year Sabbaths, (and, thus, the 7 x 7-year jubilee Sabbaths as well.) The year after the 49th is the jubilee year. This is the same as with the before-mentioned feast of Pentecost. (I.e.,
Pentecost occurs 49 days [7 weeks] after Firstfruits, with the 50th day being Pentecost. ["Pentecost" literally means "fifty."] Both Firstfruits and Pentecost were harvest festivals, but with obvious prophetic overtones and symbolism.
Hence, they were "the Lord's festivals," not man's.)
Now it happens that from this decree of Artaxeres to Nehemiah 'to restore and rebuild the walls of Jerusalem' (Daniel 9:24-27;
Neh. 1) in 444 BC, plus 490 x 5 years, (which is 49 x 50---jubilee numbers), that we arrive at the spring (Nisan) of AD 2007.
Less the said 3½ years equals the said Geneva peace treaty (that was signed twice 50 days apart). Therefore, another 3½ years more equals the 50 days between Pentecost (Sivan 6) and Firstfruits (Nisan 16) of AD 2000. (Pentecost, Sivan 6, 2000, was also when I
discovered the hand-bible code "writing on the wall" [Daniel 5]. On the 'hand' is encoded the words, "He commanded" 10 times. Thus, the hand represents the Mount Sinai covenant with the giving of the 10 commandments "written with the finger
of God," that is, the Law that was given to Moses on Pentecost.)
Moreover, Nisan 1, 2000, (the ancient religious Jewish New Year) plus 1335 days (to the hour) was the symbolic Geneva peace treaty ceremonially signed on Dec. 1, (Kislev 6) 2003, which is the number of days specified in Daniel 12. The number 1290
is also mentioned in Daniel 12, which, from Nisan 1, 2000, ended on Tishri 21, 2003 (the last day of the seven-day feast of Tabernacles). Tishri 21, 2003, was 5 days after the said Geneva Peace Treaty that was initially signed in Jordan (on Tishri 16, 2003). (Jordan
is the ancient land of Esau/Edom). The other way of expressing a 3½-year periods in the book of Daniel, (also Daniel 12), is the "time, times, and a half-a-time," understood by scholars as 3½-years ("one year," "two years," and
"a half-a-year.") To a Jew this would mean 3½-years on their calendar, (in this case 1270 days). And this is exactly what we see in the two dates of the Geneva Peace treaty in 2003, 1270 days counted back to Pentecost and Firstfruits of 2000.
In other words, the Geneva peace treaty is positioned so as to use all three expressions for a 3½-year period found in the book of Daniel, (1270, 1290, 1335), with the standard Jewish 1270 days used twice! Moreover, evangelical scholars are in basic
agreement that these expressions for 3½-year periods originate and are an expansion of the prophecy of Daniel 9:24-27 of which we are studying. (That is, the 490 years less the said 3½ + 3½ years.) Moreover, the bible numbers to do with the Geneva Treaty are arranged so
as to utilize all 3 of the major festivals of Israel---Passover/Firstfruits, Pentecost, and Tabernacles---with the religious New Year added for good measure! (The New Year is important because this was when a jubilee cycle concluded, and hence its significance to the
prophecy of Daniel 9 and 12. The Book of Nehemiah (ch. 2) specifically says that the decree to "restore Jerusalem" (in fulfillment of the prophecy) was issued in this very "month of Nisan," "in the 20th year of Artaxeres," (Nisan/Abib, 444 BC).
In short, the numeric is flawless and very instructive as to how the actual future peace treaty will use these prophetic time frames of the bible when it is signed/confirmed.
More on the Geneva Treaty:
Even the dates from which Nehemiah's decree began (445 or 444 BC) are significant in that it is half of 888---the number of the new covenant. Jesus was named on the day He was circumcised---the sign of the Abraham covenant. The name of Jesus
adds up to 888 in Gematria, (in contrast to 666 of the Antichrist).
Also, the walls of Jerusalem took a speedy 52 days to repair under Nehemiah's leadership. This was in fulfillment of Daniel 9:24-27. The walls were built in times of trouble, with a trench. It happens that 490 x 5 years later (49 x 50) less the "week" of 7 years,
comes to Elul 25, 2000. Then, another 3 more days began the uprising in Palestine that has increasingly led to the building of walls (with a trench). This is especially making headline
news NOW (February, 2004), which is 3½ years after the uprising. Even the "World Court" is involved! Hence, AGAIN we have "the building of walls with a trench in Jerusalem in times of trouble," with the Arabs in opposition (as it was with Nehemiah
too!). Is God speaking or what? What else do we need to see that the prophecy is again happening before our very eyes 70 x 7 x 5 years later (490 x 5, or, 49 x 50)!
Even why the unrest and uprising of the Palestinians "3 days" after the anniversary of when the walls of Nehemiah were completed 5 x 490 years earlier in 444 BC is logical, (that is, less the 7 years of Daniel 9:24-27). When Nehemiah arrived from Persia at
Jerusalem, he rested "3 days," then the walls began to be built for another 52 days. Now, in Elul 28, 2000, we add another 3 days to unrest. Nehemiah rests 3 days,
+ 52 days work, + 3 days to unrest. God is reversing things! Israel is selling her birthright and God is taking away her "rest" by giving her over unto her enemies.
Moreover, the very next day (after the uprising) was the 29th of Elul, which was the last day of 144 generations of 40 years from the traditional date of Creation according to Jewish chronology, (3761 BC). See the 144,000 in Revelation, which is 12 (tribes of Israel)
squared. These dates and events signify a shift in God's dealings.
Are we asleep?
Or are we awake?
The Russian leader Putin has been pushing the (Quartet) "Road Map to Peace" treaty against Israel's wishes, and the Lord has been reminding His saints of the upcoming prophesied Russian invasion of Israel prophesied in Ezekiel 38. Now, perhaps,
Putin (or his sudden successor?) will have the power to carry out the evil scheme to attack unsuspecting Israel. The writing is on the wall! Atomic warfare is coming upon Russia and upon her hoards when they attack Jerusalem, (as Israel sits bewitched and stultified by this
false peace treaty), and the nuclear exchange may well spill over into North America too. (The "Quartet" that heads the actual peace process (not the Geneva symbolic one, though they are similar) practically includes the whole world! The Quartet comprises the
United States, the United Nations, the European Union, and Russia!)
When the real peace treaty comes as prophesied, will it be any more clear numerically? Will more signs accompany it? I have only revealed a tiny portion of the numeric. I have studied bible numbers for 7 years between 1991 and 1998 on an average of about 8 hours a day! I
assure you that this is a sign from God! The bible numbers are in perfect agreement. A book could be written on the numeric alone as it relates to this Geneva Treaty. It is high time to awake! The time is closer than you think!
Also of importance is that the entry into the promised land occurred in 1406 BC. This means that we are currently half-way through the important 70th jubilee cycle, which will end in the spring of AD 2025. (70 x 49, which is 7 x 70 x 7 years, or 490 x 7
years. A jubilee is counted as 7 x 7 years in succession, with the 50th overlapping the first year of the next cycle of 49 years. Hence, the seven year Sabbaths and the 49-year jubilee cycles run uninterrupted in the same way as the regular weekly Sabbaths. God is
Moreover, it happens that 1150 days (Daniel 8) after the anniversary of when Nehemiah's walls were completed on Elul 25, 2000, (up 49 x 50 years, etc.), the UN endorsed the Quartet Peace Treaty, Nov. 19, 2003. (The Quartet Peace Treaty may well end up being the actual peace
treaty confirmed by the Antichrist.) And while the UN was officially endorsing it at the Russia's insistence, the group representing the Geneva Peace Treaty were mailing a copy of their own "50-page" peace treaty to all of Israel!
Think about it...the Quartet practically includes the whole world! [The Quartet comprises the United States, the United Nations, the European Union and Russia.] The 1150 of Daniel 8 is significant, too, in that the Quartet fits the prophecy of Daniel 8, as
a double fulfillment. (See The Ram of Saddam, and the 1150 days as it relates to the Quartet and the peace treaty, and hence, the 1150 of Daniel 8.)

United Nations -- The Security Council November 19 unanimously adopted a resolution endorsing the roadmap as the way to settlement of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and called on the two parties to fulfill their obligations under the plan in cooperation with the Quartet
on the Middle East.
U.S. Ambassador John Negroponte said that the United States supported the resolution, one of a very few Mideast resolutions that have received U.S. support in the past few years, because "it calls on parties to fulfill their obligations under the Roadmap and in
cooperation with the Quartet." [The Quartet is the United States, the United Nations, the European Union and Russia, working together in support of the Middle East peace process.]
"We remain fully committed to the vision of two states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace and security as outlined by President Bush," Negroponte said. "The roadmap is the way to realize this vision."
