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.
June 7, 1967. The Jews will once again re-occupy the city of Jerusalem (Zechariah 8:7-8)
7 This is what the LORD Almighty says: “I will save my people from the countries of the east and the west.
8 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)
2 I will make Jerusalem like an intoxicating drink that makes the nearby nations stagger when they send their armies to besiege Jerusalem and Judah.
3 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).
9 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.
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).
Jesus will return and regather all believing Jews from around the world to Israel (Deuteronomy 30:1-9).
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 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).
