Netanyahu May be Defeated – Will this Begin the End?
By GF Herrin
As the Jewish Sabbath begins, a time of uncertainty has begun for the nation of Israel. On Tuesday, March 17th, Israeli voters will go to the polls to decide who will be prime minister for the next five years. At stake is the future defense of Israel’s borders. If Benjamin Netanyahu, the Likud party leader, loses, changes are likely to come to Israel. Netanyahu is a staunch conservative who has steadfastly resisted international pressure to give up land so that a separate Palestinian state can be formed.
However, Netanyahu’s main opponents, Isaac Herzog and Tzipi Livni, seem much more likely to concede land and return Israel to its pre-1967 borders. According to the latest polls, their party has a narrow lead.
Regarding the danger to Israel if he is defeated, Prime Minister Netanyahu says, “I think our security is at great risk because there is a real danger that we could lose this election. If the gap between the Likud and Labor continues to grow, a week from now [Isaac] Herzog and [Tzipi] Livni will become the prime ministers of Israel in a rotation with the backing of the Arab parties. That will cause such a monumental shift in policy that it will endanger the security of Israel – and anyone who wants to stop it has to vote Likud to narrow the gap.”
When asked by the Jerusalem Post if Israel will be more threatened by Iran and a potentially bad deal that a coalition of countries might make with the terrorist state,the Prime Minister said, “Of course we would be in trouble. They have said on several occasions that maybe the deal isn’t so bad, we can live with the deal. They did everything possible to criticize rather than support me, as I faced enormous pressure and went to explain Israel’s opposition to the deal – which could give Iran an easy path to the bomb and pose an existential threat to Israel.”

Iran already possesses the ability to create one nuclear weapon. If they suddenly become free of the burden of economic sanctions, they could suddenly possess the resources to create more plutonium with which to produce more. With money flowing into Iran again after years of economic clampdown, the country would also be able to pump untold amounts into the production of other weapons that would likely usher in a new era of war directed to Israel. In addition, if the U.N. issues a security resolution (as they seem likely to do) to eliminate the sanctions, the reality is that the U.S. Congress, or the next president of the U.S. may not be able to do anything to stop it.
So, why am I bringing all this up? Well, as we head into next week’s elections, the reality is that three days after voting day on the 17th comes the solar eclipse on March 20th. By now, you are probably aware of the four lunar eclipses and two solar eclipses that will take place around biblical feast days and Jewish holidays in 2014-15 and their potential significance. This next eclipse is a solar one that will take place on Nissan 1, the first day of the first month of the biblical calendar.
According to Breakingisraelnews.com, “There will be a total eclipse of the sun for two minutes over the North Pole on Friday, March 20, the day of the Spring Equinox which coincides with the beginning of the Hebrew month of Nissan, the first month in the Biblical calendar year, a solar occurrence that has never happened before in human history.
A total solar eclipse at the North Pole on the first day of spring occurs once every 100,000 years. For it to occur on the first day of the first month of the Biblical calendar year is, however, entirely unprecedented since this is only the year 5775 according to Jewish tradition, meaning that there has never been such a solar occurrence in human history.”

I think that if Netanyahu does get defeated on March 17th, then the solar eclipse portends a crucial time that is beginning for Israel. It may be the beginning of the time of the end that leads to the agreement of the covenant with many that will take place before the anti-christ enters the world stage.
Also, it could be very significant if Netanyahu is defeated and Herzog and Livni are in power because they seem to be the types of leaders that will sell out Israel in hopes of securing a type of “Peace” for Israel.
1 Thessalonians 5:3 says, “For when they say, ‘Peace and safety!’ then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.”
Also, we know from the Book of Revelation that there will come a time when not only one Beast, (the antichrist), but two Beasts will take the stage at the end. Many scholars believe that the second Beast (the False witness), since he comes from the earth or land (meaning Israel), will be a Jew who deceives other Jews.
“Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived” (Rev 13:11-14).
Could one of these Prime Ministers (Herzog or Livni) be the second beast? Only time will tell. We should be watching closely next Tuesday to see who wins the election in Israel, though.
