Christ is saying when you see the abomination, which is halfway through the seven-year tribulation, if you live in Judea (Palestinian State), run to safety and don’t look back. It’s going to be very urgent. So, at the beginning of the peace treaty the people will think they have the answer, but after three and half years, the next event will be the beginning of the great tribulation. For the Jews, Jesus is warning them if they live in the Palestinian-occupied territories, to immediately flee for their lives. Under a sharing arrangement, we can envision we are entering a time that is near what the Bible reveals as the seven years leading up to the final war. Jesus declares in Matthew 24:21, “There will be great distress, unequaled from the …show more content…
We read in Acts, “You will receive power to testify about me with great effect” (Acts 1:8). The great revivals of the past always produced intensive evangelism, and they always will.
SHOULD BELIEVERS STORE FOOD? Jesus advises His disciples in Matthew, chapter 5:
“So don’t worry at all about having enough food and clothing. Why be like the heathen? For they take pride in all these things and are deeply concerned about them. But your heavenly Father already knows perfectly well that you need them, and he will give them to you if you give him first place in your life and live as he wants you to” (Matthew 5:33). Other examples in Scripture include the story of Joseph in Egypt, who is a shadow of Jesus, and the manna that God provided for food for the Israelites in the wilderness. Jesus will also provide for His children in times of wildernesses. I believe an obsession of storing is wrong. Christ’s final words to His disciples while on Earth were, “Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19). Jesus gives us signs of His return. There will be wars and rumor of wars, yet the end is not here. This is only the beginning. Like giving birth, pains come every little bit. They will get closer together. Wars will come and go, yet believers are to focus on the coming birth and not on the pains. There will be famines and earthquakes. Keep one eye on Israel and the Messianic

In 1919 at the Paris Peace Conference The Treaty of Versailles was formally drafted and World War I was finally brought to an end. The treaty was drafted by the Allied Powers, which consisted of Great Britain, France and the United States. This treaty blamed the war solely on Germany, and it required them to pay an amount of “$33 billion dollars in reparations, cede all of colonies, dismantle their air force, and greatly reduce their other military operations”(German Delegation, 291).
In 1919, the Paris Peace Conference organized by the triumphant leaders of World War I, initiate reparations and peace treaties amongst the Allied and Associated Powers and the conquered Central Powers it led to the rise of the treaty of Versailles. The progression of the treaties that were discussed in the Paris Peace conference, are what formed the new countries and borders that reshaped the entire map of the world and also resulted in many Empires becoming economically unstable. The Paris Peace Conference began with the leaders of the Allied Powers and their contributions were: Wilson’s fourteen points, the Treaty of Versailles, reparations, and the Locarno Pact. Their inability to reach the goals of these treaties led to resentment, and eventually led to the next World War.
The Treaty of Versailles was created to bring peace between nations after WWI. This investigation will answer the following question: To what extent did the Treaty of Versailles bring peace? In this investigation, the extent of the Versailles Treaty’s success will be evaluated by examining the period of its development, 1918, to the rise of Hitler, 1933. Several sources were used in this investigation including a number of books that look at the terms of the Treaty of Versailles and the reactions those terms triggered. Many sources, both primary and secondary, also examine how those reactions resulted in a failure in the attempt of brining permanent peace.
On June 28, 1919, the Treaty of Versailles was signed after World War I ended in 1918. Article 231 of Treaty of Versailles stated, “Germany accepts the responsibility of Germany and her allies for causing all the loss and damage to which the Allied and Associated Governments and their nations have been subjected as a consequence of the war imposed upon them by the aggression of Germany and her allies.” (Boundless.com). Germany held countable for the reparations, payment for war damages, according to the “War Guilt Clause” of the Treaty of Versailles. A payment of “132 billion gold marks or thirty-three billion United States dollars.” (Boundless.com). According to The History Learning Site, “The Dawes Plan of 1924 was formulated to take
Upon signing the Treaty of Versailles in June 1919, then British Prime Minister Lloyd George declared: “We will have to fight another war in 25 years time, and at three times the cost.” This ominous prediction came true as the controversial peace settlement brought no end to conflict in Europe. The Treaty was described by critics as Carthaginian: a peace so brutal it crushes the defeated side. This was the intention of the Allies, who felt a disabled Germany was the best way to preserve peace. This rationale did not satisfy Germany, who sought to undermine Versailles and succeeded in breaking the Allies’ resolve to enforce the Treaty. Ultimately, the ineffectual peace enabled Nazi ascendancy in the 1920s and 30s. Discontentment with the Weimar government, responsible for signing the Treaty, provided a receptive audience for Hitler 's hard-line policies, which were designed specifically to regain German supremacy. The signatories to the Treaty allowed Germany to violate successive terms without reprisal, which led inevitably and inexorably to the Second World War. Thus, the real criticism of the Treaty lies in its lack of enforcement.
The way that these atrocities were remembered especially helped to create the legacy of the war that each nation took ahold of and used for their own means. In the case of the French, the hatred that had built up during the war towards the Germans manifested itself in the Treaty of Versailles. The destruction the Germans caused to the countryside along the fronts as they pushed into France and as they retreated left villages and farms in ruin. This, as well as the immense slaughter of French troops, left Germany taking nearly sole responsibility for the war. In a war where blame could ultimately have been pointed at any number of other nations, Germany was pointed to as the cause with the “War Guilt Clause” of the Treaty of Versailles. To a
Following the Treaty of Versailles at the completion of World War 1, Germany fell into a state of ceaseless economic and moral decline, and its people became increasingly dissatisfied with the nation’s conditions. Many historians agree that Germany’s circumstances were caused due to the extensive reparations it had to pay, however, at this stage, Adolf Hitler’s ideologies of racial superiority and his anti-Semitic views falsely led him to accuse the Jews of Germany’s problems. Using the race as practical scapegoats, Hitler began dictating ideologies of German nationalism and anti-Semitism through speeches - delivered to the like-minded individuals of the German Workers Party (later, the Nazi Party) - and later through his autobiographical manifesto, Mein Kampf. Then, upon assuming leadership of the nation in 1933, he and Nazi followers systematically introduced an array of anti-Semitic policies, and in 1941 - following the onset of the Second world war - Europe saw the culmination of the Nazi’s ‘final solution’ to the Jewish problem, in which over two thirds of the European population of Jews were wiped out- a mass genocide, referred to collectively as the Holocaust.
“Diplomacy would rely more on naked power than on shared values” (Kissinger, 1994 page 94). In world history we can reflect on two treaties that had the intention to achieve the same goal of stability; however they had diverse approaches. Henry Kissinger and other proponents of The Congress of Vienna argue that the great period of peace in Europe, between all great powers, was successful in creating longevity in peace due to the realist theories encompassed in The Congress of Vienna. Further, many realists also believe that The Treaty of Versailles produced “the precise opposite of what they had set out to do” because, unlike The Congress of Vienna, it was composed of liberalist, constructivist and ideological principles (Kissinger, 1994, page 245). I agree with Kissinger’s argument and further argue that The Treaty of Versailles, which failed to include legal obligations and concrete mechanisms, was a primary cause of World War II. Even though there are numerous explanations for why the Congress of Vienna produced greater stability than the Treaty of Versailles, in this essay I will compare two major reasons. The first is that the Congress of Vienna focused on restoring the balance of power, while the Treaty of Versailles wanted to enforce collective security. The second reason is evident through comparing the outcomes of both treaties; while the Congress of Vienna produced the Concert of Europe, the Treaty of Versailles produced the infamously unsuccessful League of
The failure of the Treaty of Versailles in the United States Senate was due to both the opposition of the treaty in liberal and conservative forces, as well as Woodrow Wilson’s stubbornness and incompetence when deciding the final version of the treaty with imperialism, German restrictions, and the League of Nations. As World War I began with the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, igniting a conflict between Serbia and Austria-Hungary that snowballed into a war with Great Britain, France, and Russia against Germany, Austria-Hungary and Italy. When the war was over, the Treaty of Versailles needed to be discussed between the Great Britain, France, Italy, and the United States. The European demands from the war were fueled by revenge, and their imperialism countered Wilson’s apparent morality. Although isolationists and Republicans desired to influence the treaty, Wilson had accepted the European demands, and even after altering the treaty for European gain, he disallowed the treaty from passing twice in the Senate after Henry Cabot Lodge added reservations. Wilson’s influence on the Senate and the Treaty of Versailles led to its defeat in the United States and ultimately the US absence in the League of Nations.
First, the Treaty of Versailles was created to solve an urgent problem. Armistice (a truce) between the Allies and Germany ended World War One on Nov. 11, 1918, but the war wasn't formally over until the Treaty of Versailles was signed June 28, 1919. It was meant to establish a lasting peace by punishing Germany and setting up a League of Nations to solve their problems. The League of Nations was founded by President Woodrow Wilson, and it was created as a result of the paris peace conference that ended the first war. Even though the treaty left political and geographical difficulties that have been known to be blamed for start World War Two, it ended WWI. Another reason to creating the treaty is that “We [David Lloyd George] want a peace
World War I ended with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles on June 28th, 1919. After strict enforcement for five years, the French assented to the modification of important provisions. Since the Germans lost the war, their consequences were very harsh. They were forced to accept the responsibility of the war damages suffered by the Allies, which led to them having to accept the reparations (Causes of WW2, n/d). The negotiations revealed a split between the French, who wanted to dismember Germany to make it impossible for it to renew war in France, and the British and Americans, who did not want to create pretexts for a new war. Later on, the German government signed the treaty under protest, which led to German parties attacking it as a betrayal and assassinating several politicians whom they considered responsible (Treaty of Versailles, n/d). Germany was unable to pay off the enormous debt and left them in economic ruins; as a result, there was political instability and this allowed the Nazi Party to rise because the socialist party seemed to have had the solution to hunger and economic problems. After having to face their humiliating loss, the Nazi Party gained more support from the proud Germans. The Treaty ended up helping the Nazi party gain more support. By allowing the Nazi Party to rise, the Treaty had planted the roots of the Second World War (Causes of WWII— Treaty of Versailles, Failure of the League of Nations, and Policy of Appeasement,
Jesus’ longest prophecy about the time of the end is found in the synoptic Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, with each giving their own accounts of the day that they were with Him on the Mount of Olives. It is commonly referred to as The Olivet Prophecy, and it is an overview of the circumstantial events that will lead to Jesus’ return. This prophecy was given during the week before His crucifixion, and it is pivotal to understanding the future events that will affect the entire world. The prophecy begins when Jesus and His disciples, having left the Temple, were sitting on the Mount of Olives. They were enjoying a spectacular view and unexpectedly, Jesus threw the disciples a curve when He announced that the beautiful Temple they were admiring was going to be destroyed. Being curious and very concerned, Peter, James, John, and Andrew asked Him to tell them when this prophecy of such end time doom was going to take place. Jesus is so smart; He knew that they would want to know more. The apostle Mark’s account of the Olivet Prophecy which is found in Mark 13 says that Jesus revealed to them the conditions that would be present on the Earth that would lead up to His return. He said it would be a time of increasing trouble and turmoil. He warned them that at a future time on Earth; man would have the capability to destroy all of human life. Matthew, however, gives a more descriptive account of what Jesus said that day, "For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not
The Successes and Failures of the Treaty of Versailles in Addressing the Causes of Conflict and Restoring Peace and Normality
On June 28, 1919 the Treaty of Versailles was the ending of World War 1. The Treaty of Versailles causes many problems for Germany, especially the people of Germany. When the treaty was put into action the people of Germany had resentment for the government and for good reason too. The final treaty causes Germany to lose colonies and ten percent of their land because the land was lost so was trade. Austria-Hungary was divided up into seven parts. Germany lost land where they had businesses and factories so many people were out of work once the land was lost, according to markedbyteachers.com, “Much of the lost land was steel and iron factories” this caused a major unemployment problem. Germany also needed to demilitarise in result this caused
