According to Biblical prophecy, Jesus Christ could not return in power until Israel entered into a peace accord for seven years.
Prior to 15th May 1948, Israel did not exist.
When the British mandate over Palestine ended at midnight on May 15 1948, Israel's first Prime Minister, David Ben Gurion, declared that Israel was once again a nation.
After alsmost 2000 years exile into more than seventy countries, Israel was re-born.
Isaiah 66:7,8: "Before she goes into labor, she gives birth; before the pains come upon her, she delivers a son.
(8) Who has ever heard of such a thing?
Who has ever seen such things?
Can a country be born in a day or a nation be bought forth in a moment?
Yet no soon is Zion in labour than she gives birth to her children. NIV.
Amos 9:14,15: I will bring back my exiled people Israel: they will rebuild the ruined cities and live in them.
They will plant vineyards and drink their wine. they will make gardens and eat their fruit.
(15) I will plant Israel in their own land, never again to be uprooted from the land I have given them," says the Lord your God. NIV
Restoration of the Hebrew language foretold.
In the early 1900's, a Jewish language scholar, Eliazar Ben Yehuda, received a vision from God which led him to restore the Hebrew language.
With the return of Jewish exiles, post May 15, 1948, from over seventy countries, the Israeli people were given compulsory Hebrew language classes as a means of unifying the diverse cultures into a single language.
Zephaniah 3:9 For then I will turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve him with one consent. KJV
The return of the Ethiopian Jews was foretold.
This prophecy was most likely fulfilled when thousands of Ethiopian Jews were returned to Israel by US air-lifts between 1989-1991.
Zephaniah 3:10 From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia my suppliants, even the daughter of my dispersed, shall bring mine offering. KJV
