“Israel will go a long time without a king or prince, and without sacrifices, sacred pillars, priests, or even idols! But afterward the people will return”.—Hosea 3:4-5a (NLT)
This is one of the MANY verses in Scripture specifically foretelling that Israel would become a nation again in the last days. If you have never considered Bible prophecy as proof that the Bible is from God, please pause and think about it for a minute. Scores of very specific verses and passages that detail exactly what happened in 1948 (and following) when Israel became a nation again. How is this possible unless God is involved. By the way, this prophecy is 2800 years old!
It still blows my mind when I hear people say Israel’s rebirth is just a coincidence or a normal development of history. Really? What other nation has ever been cast out of it’s land for 2000 years, suffered persecution almost everywhere, then returned to their land with their original language, customs, and identity in tact? I’ll answer that. None. Only Israel. It’s not a coincidence and believers in particular should recognize and celebrate this fact. God keeps his promises. That means his promises to us will come to pass.
BTW, I wish I could post more because SOOOOO much is happening right now that is prophetically significant. When I first started studying Bible prophecy and what the Bible clearly teaches are signs pointing to the soon return of the Lord, it seems there were one or two developments per month. Now it seems there are 20-30 per week!
I’m finishing the art and manuscript for my next book, The Non-Prophet’s Guide™ to Revelation as well as finishing some Timbuktoons projects and that is keeping me beyond busy. I just wanted to encourage you to stand firm, rest in the Lord, and look up (Luke 21:28)!
