Prophecies Currently Being Fulfilled

We are presently living in perilous yet electrifying times, when we can witness numerous Bible prophecies being fulfilled before our very eyes. Most of these prophecies relate to the Jewish people and their nation. Here is a brief summary of prophecies concerning the Jews, that are currently being fulfilled and those that are soon to be fulfilled.

The Jewish people will be regathered to Israel in unbelief from the four corners of the earth (Isaiah 11:11-12). 20th Century and continuing.

May 14, 1948. The State of Israel was be re-established (Isaiah 66:7-8 & Ezekiel 37:21-22). The Fulfilment as predicted.

June 7, 1967. The Jews will once again re-occupy the city of Jerusalem (Zechariah 8:7-8)

 This is what the LORD Almighty says: “I will save my people from the countries of the east and the west. 
 I will bring them back to live in Jerusalem; they will be my people, and I will be faithful and righteous to them as their God.”

The land of Israel will be reclaimed from its chronic desolation, becoming once again a land of amazing agricultural abundance (Ezekiel 36:34-35).

The Hebrew language will be revived from the dead. (Zephaniah 3:9). Fulfillment: 19th & 20th Centuries.

All the nations of the world will come together against Israel over the issue of the control of Jerusalem (Zechariah 12:2-3). Currently occurring.

Zechariah 12:2-3 (NLT) 
 I will make Jerusalem like an intoxicating drink that makes the nearby nations stagger when they send their armies to besiege Jerusalem and Judah.
 On that day I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock. All the nations will gather against it to try to move it, but they will only hurt themselves.

The Arab nations of the world will attack Israel in a coordinated effort to annihilate the state (Zechariah 12 and Psalm 83).

Israel will soundly defeat the Arab alliance (Zechariah 12:6-10, Psalm 83).

Zechariah 12:9-11 
 For on that day I will begin to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
10  “Then I will pour out the  spirit of grace and prayer on the family of David and on the people of Jerusalem. They will look on me whom they have pierced and mourn for him as for an only son. They will grieve bitterly for him as for a firstborn son who has died.
11  The sorrow and mourning in Jerusalem on that day will be like the great mourning for Hadad-rimmon in the valley of Megiddo.

The Jews will turn to God and receive Yeshua as their Messiah (Zechariah 12:10Romans 9:27-28, & Romans 11:25-27).

Israel will dwell in security and prosperity (Ezekiel 38:11).

A coalition consisting mainly of Muslim from the North will seek to invade Israel (Ezekiel 38:1-17).

The coalition will be destroyed supernaturally by God (Ezekiel 38:18-23 & 39:1-8).

Jesus will return and regather all believing Jews from around the world to Israel (Deuteronomy 30:1-9).

Israel will be established as the prime nation in the world (Isaiah 2:1-4 & Micah 4:1-7).

The Lord will bless the Jewish remnant by fulfilling all the amazing promises He has made to Israel (Isaiah 60:1-6, 2:7).

The blessings of God will flow out to all the nations through the Jewish people during the Millennial rule of Jesus (Zechariah 8:22-23).

Prophecies Concerning The Church

Christians should find the amazing fulfilment of these prophecies very encouraging because God has also made many similar promises through Bible prophecy to the Church. As we see the Lord fulfilling every promise He has made to the Jews, we can be assured that He will fulfil all the promises made through His Prophetic Word to the Church.

God has promised that one day very soon, His Son will appear in the Heavens. There will be the shout of an archangel and the blowing of a shophars, and all the dead in Christ will be resurrected to meet Him in the sky. And those of us who are alive will be taken up also, not even experiencing death (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).

We will receive glorified, perfected bodies (Isaiah 35:5-6 & Philippians 3:21). We will return to Heaven with the Lord to await the end of the Tribulation (John 14:1-4).

While in Heaven, we will be judged to receive our degrees of rewards (2 Corinthians 5:10) and we will celebrate our union with the Lord at the “Marriage Supper of the Lamb” (Revelation 19:7-9).

 We Will Then Return With The Lord To This Earth (Revelation 19:14), and we will reign with Him for a thousand years (Revelation 20:1-6). During that glorious reign, we will see the earth flooded with peace, righteousness and justice, as the waters cover the seas (Isaiah 11:1-9).

At the end of the Millennium, we will be removed to the New Jerusalem the Lord has been preparing for us, and from that vantage point, we will witness the greatest display in history as God envelops this earth in fire, burning away the pollution of Satan’s last revolt (2 Peter 3:10-13). Out of that fiery inferno will come new heavens and a new earth where we will live forever in the New Jerusalem in the presence of Almighty God and His Son (Revelation 21:1-7).

A Divine Explosion?

Steve Schultz recently published an interesting prophecy from Bill Yount of Blowing the Shofar Ministry:

“There will soon be an explosion of My power that will be heard around the world that will bring salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.” (Wikimedia Commons)

I said to the Lord on Sunday morning, “The gunshots we are hearing daily on the news are so grieving.” The Lord said, “There will soon be an explosion of My power that will be heard around the world that will bring salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. This explosion will interrupt news reporters and the media.”

What I sense I am seeing is only a part of what this explosion will do.

A great light will accompany this explosion, piercing gross darkness in the hearts of men. This explosive power will blow the scales off the eyes of the Jewish people, and they will run like prodigals to the mountain of the Lord. The sound of a shofar will roar like a lion, calling them home.

This great light will penetrate war zones, releasing the angel armies to war with heaven’s most powerful weapon: God’s love. I heard that familiar voice conversing with terrorists saying, “Why do you persecute Me?” (see Acts 9:4). Some angels were causing guns to jam and bullets to disappear, as a light brighter than the sun brought instant healing to their hateful hearts.

Certain areas of war zones became “fields of altars” as many blinded by the light were crying out, “Lord, what would You have me to do?” Many were surrendering to the Lord on the battlefield.

‘Miraculous Testimonies’ Surrounding Soldiers on the Battlefield

Angels were protecting some of these soldiers until the light broke through. Some died in battle. But as that bright light shone on their corpses, it was like someone had breathed life back into them, and they stood knowing they were new creatures. Hatred was gone and God’s love had come.

Soldiers on both sides of the battlefield were being visited. Some soldiers, seeing their comrades who had died but were now alive, were in shock as the fear of the Lord came upon them. At first, the enemy tried his best to keep these testimonies as quiet as possible. But all the demons and powers of hell could no longer hold them back. For they were now overcoming the enemy by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony.

Journalists and news reporters at first were struck with unbelief as these miracles began to reach their ears. But as they kept hearing these unusual events, believing began eroding their doubts as soldiers reported seeing Jesus and were being healed of their battle wounds. Curiosity caused many journalist and reporters to listen to the rest of their stories. Slowly but surely, these unbelievable testimonies began breaking into the media and news outlets, touching the viewers and the readers of the late breaking news that could no longer be ignored.

God Says, ‘Pray, Forgive and Bless’

I asked the Lord, “What caused this shift and turning in the hearts of men?” He said, “It’s the prayers of My remnant in the earth who are praying with forgiveness in their hearts and blessing their enemies in the time of being persecuted for My namesake because that is My will.

“Praying, forgiving and blessing releases My Spirit to move on anyone. Many of My people have chosen which enemies to pray for and have decided which enemies are too far gone to be saved. But those who are filled with My love know that the real enemy is Satan, not flesh and blood; therefore, no one is too far gone.”

If you think the terrorists are too far gone, read the story of Saul (see Acts 9), whose name became Paul, who wrote much of the New Testament. God wants to change many more names!

“Keep praying, keep forgiving and keep blessing in My name. The fuse has been lit.”

A Different Look at the Second Coming

The world is currently in an absolutely terrifying  condition at this time. Even many  Christians are seriously wondering what is going to happen next? Will something happen to end the potential threats, or will the chaos increase?  Will Islam rule the whole world or will Jehovah?  Only God knows, and only the Bible can tell us. The Bible predicts a devastatingly  powerful attack on Israel that only Almighty God can defeat. Following God’s amazing victory over those who launch the attack, God will pour out His Spirit on Israel (Zechariah 12:9-10.) Israel will then be transformed to acknowledge and surrender to the Messiah. This will mark the beginning of His reign over Israel, and subsequently over the whole world. Contrary to the thoughts of many people, these events are like to happen in the very near future.                                          

 Despite the fact that the world has prophetically reached what is the most dangerous point in all human history, it seems apparent that the Church is in a deep slumber, completely ignorant of what the Bible predicts about this critical time. There are many serious rumblings and signs of potential wars, which could drastically change the world as we presently know it. For the Church, the immediate future is faced with the greatest challenge of its history.  How tragic that the Church is evidently sublimely ignorant of what the Bible prophets have predicted for this critical era. It would seem that the Church is both deaf and blind regarding what is happening around the world and what the activities might produce in the immediate future. We must all immediately open our eyes and ears to what is transpiring and what the Bible declares of the potential dangers that confront humanity.

 Amongst those Christians who sincerely believe in the Second Coming of Christ, the majority of them believe that the Rapture, (Catching away to the clouds – 1 Thessalonians 4:17) is actually the Second Coming. This  book  presents another possibility that is very different, but worthy of our consideration. If the expected rapture does happen soon that would be wonderful for all Christians. However, if there is any other manner in which Messiah’s return to earth might happen, it is essential to prepare for such an  alternative. Will the Messiah return to Jerusalem?

 Although the Second Coming of the Messiah to establish His Kingdom in the “Last Days” is declared throughout the Bible, very few Christians today show any urgent interest in what is commonly called “The Second Coming” of Christ the Messiah. The ones that do show any interest usually view it as a dim and distant possibility without any serious link to present reality. Various theologians have developed a list of ideas and concepts about how it may possibly eventuate. Most of these ideas favour the idea of a Rapture that will spirit all true  Christians away to the safety of heaven, whilst all those who remain on earth, especially the Jews, will endure another horrific holocaust commonly called The Great Tribulation.” All of the popular ideas concerning what the Bible calls the “Last days” hold out little  positive hope for Israel, except a devastating and disastrous time of suffering and death. Let me admit here that I too believe in the Great Tribulation. However, I personally believe that this dramatic period will actually be one in which Israel will be powerfully and positively used by God to demonstrate the sensational and glorious events that will  elevate Israel, and clearly reveal to all nations, the special favor of God on the nation that He has so often declared to be His special people. I personally believe that these verses have vital relationship to the Messiah’s Return.

The Next Great Prophecy to be Fulfilled

What In The World Will Happen Next?

The world is presently facing many dangerous dilemmas. All of them are extremely unpredictable. Only the Bible has the true explanation of what will transpire at the close of this dispensation. Huge nations like Russia and China and Iran are making threatening noises, without announcing what their ultimate  plans are.  America, under the leadership of its new president, is also making bold statements without making its plans known to the rest of the world. Each of these nations has the potential to bring chaos, confusion and potential dangers to the world.  Many people are seriously wondering what might happen next and what the result may be.  My personal belief is that several Islamic nations will launch a fierce attack on Israel that will cause God to intervene to save the future  of  Israel.  This attack and its result, is plainly predicted in Psalm 83 and Zechariah 12. When this happens it will have a devastating effect on the whole world.  Zechariah 12 particularly contains the prediction that will have the greatest effect in verses 9 and 10.  Its most powerful impact will be on the psyche of Islam because its supporters believe in the inevitable victory of Islam  through the influence of their god.

Zechariah 12:9-11 
 On that day I will set out to destroy all the nations that attack Jerusalem.
10  “And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem the spirit of grace and supplication. They will look on me, the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son.
11  On that day the weeping in Jerusalem will be as great as the weeping of Hadad Rimmon in the plain of Megiddo.

Verse 9 foretells the destruction of all the nations that attack Israel. It is very obvious from Psalm 83, that all these nations are currently Islamic. This astounding supernatural defeat of these nations will have a devastating effect on Islamic nations around the whole world.  The hopes and dreams of world domination  will totally disintegrate. Every Muslim on earth will realise that the true God of the universe is also uniquely the holy One of Israel.  This clear fact will not only impact Islam. The supernatural defeat of these Islamic nations in such a supernatural manner, will send a clear message to all the nations around the world concerning the power and authority of Yahweh and His  unique relationship to Israel.

Following the devastating defeat of these Islamic nations, God will turn His attention to Israel, exalting her importance above all other nations on earth.  God will pour out His Holy Spirit upon Israel, transforming the whole nation into a Messianic nation that will not only worship the One we call the Father, but also the Messiah and the Holy Spirit. This unique outpouring will greatly excel what happened on the historic Day of Pentecost. Instead of rejecting their Messiah, the whole nation will joyfully embrace Him, causing a glorious transformation of the whole nation.  This prophetic event  will also transform the whole Church into a truly Messianic company that seamlessly includes both Jew and Gentile which was God’s original intention.

All the descendants of King David will then embrace Yeshua as their Lord and Messiah, who will initially rule over the Kingdom of Israel and ultimately over the whole world. All the people of Israel will mourn for the historic death of Yeshua in Jerusalem, which was caused by the Jewish Sanhedrin. On this prophetic occasion they will finally proclaim Him as their long promised Savour, Lord and Redeemer. From this moment on the whole world will recognize the redemptive plan of God for all mankind.

The Church today must recognize the supreme importance of Israel, and prepare to welcome Him back to earth. Israel is at the very centre of God’s redemptive plan for the whole world.
