By the year 70 AD, the Roman Emperor Pompey had put down the final Jewish rebellion against Roman occupation. As a result, the Jews were displaced (scattered) throughout the rest of the known world. Moses forecasted this dispersion 1,500 years before it occurred in the year 1423 BC. “The Lord will scatter you among the people, and you will be left few in number among the nations where the Lord will drive you.” (Deuteronomy 4:27) The Roman conquest of the Jewish nation in 70 AD is studied in classrooms throughout the world and accepted as historically accurate. How could Moses have known such an event would take place 1,500 years before it happened if God had not shown him? Not only did Moses foresee the final Jewish dispersion 1,500 years before it happened, he also predicted the return of the Jews 2,000 years later, after the dispersion in 1948.“Then the Lord your God will bring you back from captivity and have compassion on you, and gather you again from all the nations where the Lord God has scattered you.” (Deuteronomy 30:3)
The modern nation of Israel looms as a signal that planet Earth is about to take a big step toward its amazing future. Have you ever wondered what a Jew is, or why they have been so widely hated throughout their earthly journey? It all began when God made an agreement with Abraham the father of the Jews. If Abraham would be faithful to trust God then God would be faithful to reward him. “Now the Lord had said to Abram, I will make you a great nation and in you, all the families of the earth be blessed.” (Genesis 12:2, 3) This verse is in direct reference to the nation of Israel and to Jesus Christ the Redeemer and descendant of Abraham who would amend the law of sin and death. Jacob, Abraham’s grandson became the tribe of Israel. “Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel.” (Genesis 32:28) We who are living on Earth today are literally Bible characters because the re-gathering of Israel has materialized in our time. If you are paying any attention to global affairs then you know there is a shifting of power on the geopolitical scene. These international changes are moving in concurrence with the second coming of Jesus Christ and the events surrounding His return. Make sure you are prepared and be absolutely certain that you are allied with the winning side “I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also.” (John 14:3)
The remarkable rebirth of Israel is no secret to sincere Bible students who accept the Word of God for what it plainly states, “I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it.” (Jeremiah 30:3 The Major Prophets, as well as various other writers of the Old Testament, predicted the restoration of Israel in the latter day. Space will not allow a comprehensive examination of events that precede the return of Jesus to planet Earth but there are a few things that should be noted. What is happening right now with the Arab uprising cannot be missed or ignored. The God of Islam and the God of Israel are not the same god therefore Israel’s presence is intolerable to Muslims and must be destroyed. Before it is over the geopolitical scene in Asia, Africa, and Europe will look different than when it started. Try to imagine a large geographic puzzle where nation pieces are moving ever so slowly into their final positions. These latter-day alignments are developing primarily because of ideologies intolerable to one another.
