When we read about the incredible wonders that God performed through Moses with the ten plagues of Egypt and the miraculous parting of the Red Sea, we’re left with a sense of awe and amazement. These events actually happened!
Movies have been made about the plagues and the Red Sea, and thousands of years later, believers all over the world still tell the stories of what took place.
In the book of Jeremiah, we’re told on two different occasions that a miracle greater than the exodus was to occur.
Even more riveting is the fact that this miraculous prophecy has been fulfilled in modern times!
Under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, Jeremiah proclaims twice that the rebirth of the nation of Israel would be a greater miracle than the events surrounding the exodus and the parting of the Red Sea.
“However, the days are coming,” declares the LORD, “when it will no longer be said, ‘As surely as the LORD lives, who brought the Israelites up out of Egypt,’ but it will be said, ‘As surely as the LORD lives, who brought the Israelites up out of the land of the north and out of all the countries where he had banished them.’ For I will restore them to the land I gave their ancestors.”
“The days are coming,” declares the LORD, “when people will no longer say, ‘As surely as the LORD lives, who brought the Israelites up out of Egypt,’ but they will say, ‘As surely as the LORD lives, who brought the descendants of Israel up out of the land of the north and out of all the countries where he had banished them.’ Then they will live in their own land.”
When you consider the millions of details that had to come together in order for the Jewish people to return to their homeland after 1,878 years of being scattered and mistreated all over the world, you can see why Jeremiah considered this single event to be more miraculous and momentous than the parting of the Red Sea.
In preparation for all the dramatic end-times events that will take place in the future, Israel had to be in existence once again—and this incredible prophecy was fulfilled in our modern era.
Israel — rebirthed as a nation in 1948 and small enough to fit in Lake Michigan with room to spare—is the eighth most powerful nation in the world.
We’re living in biblical times!
