That was the two-word answer given to Tsar Nicholas and Napoleon Bonaparte when they asked for proof that God is real. No other people group has endured through the ages — despite continual persecution and prosecution. Their respective advisors understood that only God could protect and preserve a people He set apart as His.
Throughout Scripture, God not only promised to provide for the chosen descendants of Abraham — He swore to bring them back to their own Promised Land in the fullness of time.
That promise goes hand in glove with His warning that they would be scattered throughout the world because of their disobedience and faithlessness. They would be harassed and oppressed to the point that they would be left with “a trembling of heart, failing of eyes, and despair of soul” (Deuteronomy 28:64).
But God swore that He would never fail them or forsake them.
All the other Signs of the Times are multiplying before our eyes — here in America and around the world. But the Sign of Israel focuses primarily on the Land and people of Israel.
Many prophetic writers would testify to the magnitude of this great sign that reemerged on the world scene in just the past century. In the fullness of time, God is bringing the Jewish people back to the Land — and back to Him.
If you are a Jew, do you understand the promises that are yours? Do you know the Messiah Who said He came for the Jew first, but also for the Gentile?
If you are a Gentile, do you ongoingly pray for the peace of Jerusalem? Do you endeavor to make Jews you encounter jealous of your relationship with the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob?
Regardless of your ethnic background, do you realize that the Sign of Israel is proof that God’s prophetic timeline is nearing the end?
Get ready to be encouraged, enlightened, challenged, and thrilled. Know that “there is none like the God of Israel, Who rides the heavens to your help, and through the skies in His majesty.”
