2Ti 3:1-3  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.  (2)  For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,  (3)  Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

Good morning! As we are coming close to ending this series, I found it interesting that trucebreaker is included as a sin of the end times. Just what is a truce breaker? Noah Webster defined it as:

TRU’CE-BREAKERnoun [truce and breaker.] One who violates a truce, covenant or engagement

A covenant is made by many every single day. Take marriage, for example. People break their covenant to remain faithful until death do us part. However, the divorce rate is nearly 50% amongst Americans. They say there is a decline but that is only due to people living together rather than getting married. A covenant is not taken seriously as it was in the past.

The ultimate covenant that will be broken comes when the Antichrist signs a covenant with Israel, a peace treaty if you will. However, we see in Daniel 9:27 that this covenant will case half way through the Tribulation, three and a half years later.

Dan 9:27  And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

I truly believe we are seeing this come to fruition with the war in the Middle East. This is not the Ezekiel 38 and 39 war just yet as Israel currently has allies helping her. The Ezekiel war reveals that no one will come to her rescue, not even America. This is why there will be a need for a peace treaty, or covenant if you will. The Antichrist will confirm/sign this treaty with Israel and that is when the seven-year Tribulation will begin. This broken covenant is the ultimate broken covenant as it will usher in the Second Coming of Jesus Christ after those seven years are over.

Covenants don’t have the same impact on people’s hearts as they did back in the day. Gone are the days when a man’s (or woman’s) word was a bond. If you are not truly born-again, you won’t see today’s topic as a sin. But there is coming a time when it will be too late for you to repent and be saved. It is no coincidence that God has placed you here for such a time as this so that you may be saved if you are not already.
