SIGNS POINTING TO THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS CHRIST ................
WATER will REFRESH the parched DESERT wilderness of ISRAEL :
The RE-BIRTH of the NATION STATE OF ISRAEL :
For two thousand years , since 70 AD , the land that present day Israel
occupies was left to become a parched desert wasteland . It was not
until following the Re-birth of Israel http://gen1rev22.blogspot.com/2011/12/
, in 1948 , that the desert wastelands were refreshed with water . And
the evidence for this is that Israel is indeed no longer a wasteland ,
but has been able to manage its water supply . This , is exactly what
was said would happen when God brought Israel back to the land He had
said they would return too . The prophet Isaiah , some 2500 years ago ,
wrote down the following ................
I will open rivers on the bare heights,
and fountains in the midst of the valleys.
I will make the wilderness a pool of water,
and the dry land springs of water.
19 I will put in the wilderness the cedar,
the acacia, the myrtle, and the olive.
I will set in the desert the cypress,
the plane and the pine together,
20 that they may see and know,
may consider and understand together,
that the hand of the Lord has done this,
the Holy One of Israel has created it.
The significance of the re-gathering of the Jews into the nation state
of Israel in 1948 , after two thousand years of wanderings within the
nations of the world , is that we are told when this happens , at some
time soon after their being brought back to their land , Jesus Christ
will return a second time . The event of Jesus Christ returning a second
time will be a time of great upheavel ,trouble and calamity . Zechariah
wrote of this future event some 2500 years ago ........
Behold , a day is coming for the Lord, when the spoil taken from you
will be divided in your midst. 2For I will gather all the nations
against Jerusalem to battle, and the city shall be taken and the houses
plundered and the women raped. Half of the city shall go out into exile,
but the rest of the people shall not be cut off from the city. 3Then
the Lord will go out and fight against those nations as when he fights
on a day of battle. 4On that day his ( Jesus Christ ) feet shall stand
on the Mount of Olives that lies before Jerusalem on the east, and the
Mount of Olives shall be split in two from east to west by a very wide
valley, so that one half of the Mount shall move northward, and the
other half southward. 5And you shall flee to the valley of my mountains,
for the valley of the mountains shall reach to Azal. And you shall flee
as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah.
Then the Lord my God will come, and all the holy ones with him.
Clearly , Israel needs to be in place before the nations of the world
can be gathered against it , and as shown , this happened in 1948 after
2000 years of dispersion .
It must also be noted that never before
have the nations of the world been gathered together against Israel ,
again Clearly a future event .
Are we witnessing biblical prophecy written down and given some 2500 years ago , being fulfilled in our time ?
