The Christian Bible predicts the world will meet its fiery demise when Satan and Jesus Christ wrestle for control over the world. Preceding this heavenly battle between the forces of good and evil are a number of prophetic events outlined in the Bible's many chapters. Among them is the construction of a Third Holy Temple in Jerusalem, the rise of the Antichrist and the covenant with many.
According to some interpretations of the Bible, these events are already unfolding as shown by recent developments in the Middle East.
According to Paul Begley, an Indiana-based TV evangelist and online personality, the nation of Israel is presently heading down a path that will secure the prophetic covenant.
In his opinion, the covenant describes a series of peace deals and treaties Israel will strike with its neighbours.
Most recently, Malawi's newly elected President Lazarus Chakwera vowed to open a diplomatic office in Jerusalem.

He declared: "The reforms will also include a review of our diplomatic presence, including our resolve to have new diplomatic missions in Lagos, Nigeria, and Jerusalem, Israel."
The leaders of Serbia and Kosovo signalled similar intentions and on August 13, Israel and the United Arab Emirates signed the historic Abraham Accord peace deal.
If Christian conspiracy theories are to be believed, these are all stepping stones towards the Second Coming of Christ.
However, Pastor Begley argued during a recent live broadcast on his YouTube channel, none of these peace treaties will last.
His evidence? Ancient prophecies and scripture penned in the Bible.
