Many people are wondering why what’s happening in Israel has to do with us here in America? Why is World News consumed with what’s happening in that country? Well, believe it or not, what happens in Israel affects the entire world. According to the Bible, Israel is the external focus of the end times. Around 33 AD, Jesus Christ prophesied what would happen to Israel when he cursed the fig tree which represents Israel.(Mark 11:20-21). This prophesy came to pass when the Roman army surrounded and slaughtered the Jews in 70 AD. However, many of the Jews escaped into European nations.It was also prophesied in the Old Testament that the Jews would eventually return to their homeland.
“who brought up the sons of Israel from the land of the north and from all the countries where He had banished them. For I will restore them to their own land, which I gave to their fathers” (Jeremiah 16:15). This prophecy came to pass on May14, 1948.
However, because of their rejection of their own Messiah, Jesus Christ, it was also foretold that they would be surrounded by their enemies and they would be persecuted until the Lord returns in the final days. Unfortunately, in the last days, Israel’s persecution will intensify. This will open the door for a false Messiah to appear on the scene to rescue Israelis from their enemies. “He will also enter the Beautiful Land, and many countries will fall”.(Daniel 11:41). This false messiah will be the “Antichrist”, who is referred to as “The Beast”, in the Book of Revelation, chapter 13.
