Jews Returning to Israel is a Living Prophecy

I can't remember which preacher I heard say it, but I believe it when he said, "If you want proof of God, look no further than Israel."

Israel was a land flowing with milk and honey.  God brought the Jews there and then warned them they would be spit out of the land if they ever rejected Him.  They did reject him and they were totally spit out of the land and Jerusalem was given to gentile control in 70 AD.  God said that the land would turn to crap if the Jews weren't there to inhabit the land....and it did.  It turned into a big desert with no trees and no resources.

But God said he would bring the Jews back...not because they deserved it but to fulfill HIS promise to their forefathers and for His glory.

And that amazing miracle began to happen about 100 years ago.  And 70 years ago Israel became a nation and the land started to bloom again.

Never on planet earth has this story, or anything even remotely similar, happened.

Within only a few generations, Jews scattered around the world have reassembled into a nation in their ancient biblical homeland of Israel. One Israeli in the new film "I Am Israel" marvels that there were only around 60,000 Jews in what is now Israel at the turn of the last century, compared to more than 6 million today.

As Breaking Israel News notes, the global population of Jews outside Israel has decreased from 1945 to today, while the number of Jews within Israel has dramatically increased. Today, 43 percent of the global Jewish population now resides in Israel. If current trends continue, the majority of the world's Jewish population will soon reside in Israel.

"Another Bible prophecy is about to be fulfilled in Israel," said Joseph Farah, founder of WND and the author of "The Restitution of All Things: Israel, Christians and the End of the Age." "We're reaching the tipping point at which the majority of the world's Jews are actually living in Israel. That strikes me as a big deal when you consider how many times the Bible predicts this miraculous ingathering – something that has never happened with any other nation in the history of the world."

Farah points to Scriptures such as Isaiah 11:11 and Jeremiah 16:14-16 that suggest the biggest miracles in Israel's history, such as this vast ingathering of the Jews from all parts of the earth, are still to come. Farah, who along with his wife Elizabeth will be leading the 2017 WND Israel Tour in November 2017, has argued the rebirth of Israel and the prophesied ingathering of the Jews is God's greatest miracle.

Many Jews themselves are quick to realize the prophetic significance of the times in which they are living. Rabbi Hillel Weiss, spokesman for the nascent Sanhedrin, a group attempting to resurrect the ancient Jewish legal body, told Breaking Israel News his group believes Jews are in the prophesied "third inheritance" of the land. Some argue that according to Jewish tradition, this "inheritance" of the land will be permanent, the Jews will not be driven out again and the Third Temple will soon be constructed.

Mark Biltz, the man who discovered the "Blood Moons" phenomenon and the author of the new book "God's Day Timer," is excited about the biblical importance of current events.

"The ingathering of Jews back to Israel has great prophetic significance," he told WND. "It's all about sanctifying the Name of God. God's name is sanctified by the regathering of Jews back to the Land. God made a promise to give them the land of Israel so if they are not there, to the nations He becomes either a liar or an impotent God who never was able to fulfill His promise.

"After the unimaginable tragedy of the Holocaust, the collective sentiment that arose out of Israel was, ‘Never again!' What this phrase means, is this: ‘Never again will we as a people be weak so as to allow ourselves to become the prey of the nations. We will pick ourselves up from this and become strong.' The only cry that will bring true national restoration is, ‘Come let us return to the Lord. For He has wounded us, but He will heal us. For He has torn us, but He will restore us.' This is pattern that He uses for all people to bring them to Himself. It is through brokenness and repentance, not through self-determination."


Israel IS God's timepiece.  The bloom is on the fig tree!...so we shouldn't be surprised as to what season we are in.
