As we draw near to the end of history as we know it, we see amazing events looming up not far ahead. 

For centuries theologians has supposed the restoration of Israel as a Jewish nation might be some kind of mysterious symbolic message in the Old Testament. 

  • Some have speculated that the Old Testament prophets were talking about the Church. 

    •  Others have thought the prophecies would not come to pass because the Jews rejected the Messiah.

  • However they were missing the point. 

In Romans 9 to 11, the Apostle Paul discussed the very problem of Israel’s rejection, Israel’s rejection of Yeshua Messiah and God’s rejection of Israel.

In Romans Chapter 11, Paul makes it clear that the rejection is partial and temporary. 

  • Not all Jews rejected Jesus. If fact the first Church and the Apostles were Jewish. 

  • Secondly, Israel’s unbelief is neither total nor permanent. Consequently, God’s rejection of Israel is neither total nor permanent.   

Romans 11:1 (NKJV)  I say then, has God cast away His people? Certainly not! For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.

Romans 11:13-15 (NKJV)   For I speak to you Gentiles; inasmuch as I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry,

  • if by any means I may provoke to jealousy those who are my flesh and save some of them.

  • For if their being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead?

Romans 11:25-27 (NKJV)  For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in.

  • And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: “The Deliverer will come out of Zion, And He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob;

  • For this is My covenant with them, When I take away their sins.”

As the Jewish nation of Israel has been dramatically restored and miraculously protected in our time, so we have also seen two other amazing developments.

  • There is a rapid multiplication of Jewish believers in Yeshua Messiah around the world and in Israel itself.

  • There is a rapid growth of Christian Zionism based on belief in literal Bible prophecies.

Disasters multiply around the world and especially in the Middle East where hatred of the Jews is strongest. 

But we must know that God is not the author of evil. 

  • Not all disasters are the work of the Divine Judge. 

  • There is a lot of demonic activity and a lot of human sinfulness involved.

God is love and He remains as He was in the Bible, the Great Worker of Miracles.

  • As Israel is once more the central focus of world events, know that the Times of the Gentiles are drawing to a close. 

  • Know that you are called to rise and shine in the miraculous power and love of Jesus to love the Jews and to provoke them to jealousy for the sake of Yeshua Messiah.       

  • Expect God to do amazing things even this year and next year, not only in the mighty underground church in China, not only in Africa where tens of thousands of people are sometimes saved in a single day. 

  • Expect God to do amazing things in your life and in the countries we have written off, the so called Post Christian nations of old Christendom.

  • Expect miracles in your family, breakthroughs in your ministry, turnarounds in your health and finances. Expect God to act and He will act as YOU act in faith.
