END TIME PROPHECY – Jews return to Israel

Jesus stated that there would be a time, prior to His return that certain things would occur. He stressed: you must be able to interpret the signs and be prepared for there will be many who will try to deceive you. (Luke 12:54- 56)

Revelation 13:7 & 8 – “And the beast was allowed to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them. And he was given authority to rule over every tribe and people and language and nation. And all the people who belong to this world worshiped the beast. They are the ones whose names were not written in the Book of Life before the world was made—the Book that belongs to the Lamb who was slaughtered.”

It appears the Antichrist’s goal is to eliminate every Jew and Christian from the world. I have often believed those whose names are in the Book of Life will be given a power that will enable them such courage and a lack of fear that will allow them to face the Antichrist to do whatever, without losing faith or being forced to worship him.

There will be two divisions of people: those who worship God and those who worship the Anti-Christ. Those refusing to accept Christ will have hearts as hard as the Egyptians and refuse God and continue to sin. A promise Christ made was that anyone who aligns himself with the father and accepts what I am saying will have ever-lasting life and will no longer be condemned an outsider. Those who have accepted Christ as their Savior will have a resurrected life and those who rejected Christ will face judgment.

If you have studied your Bible, you can see signs that the Bible predicts will happen prior to the second return of Jesus Christ. What is happening in America, the Middle-East, Russia, Iran and China give clear signs that what is happening is shared repeatedly in Scripture. Just because the end-times have been predicted for the past 2000 years, never have we seen so many signs that can be contributed to what the Bible describes in preparation for Christ’s return.

After the attack in the newspaper offices of Charlie Hebdo in Paris an attack by Muslim extremists also occurred killing four French Jews. You may have noticed there was not the rage about the Jews as there was the killing of the paper’s employees. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told French Jews: “To all the Jews of France, all the Jews of Europe, I would like to say that Israel is not just the place in whose direction you pray, the state of Israel is your home. All Jews who want to immigrate to Israel will be welcomed here warmly and with open arms.” Jews coming from Western Europe to live in Israel have increased 88% over the previous year. God has often use different means to encourage His people to return to Israel whether it was Egypt, Babylonia or elsewhere.

It is estimated that in a recent poll of over four million adults, 26% were anti-Semitic. The Bible says that in the end times, God will gather His people from all over the world to return to Israel. Matthew 24:9 – “Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me.”

Mark 13:28 – 31 – “Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that it is near, right at the door. Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.”

Scripture says that all believers will be gathered up and brought together. We know that Christ will rule for 1000 years from Jerusalem. God will continue bringing back the Jews so that they will have His protection going through the period when the entire universe will be changed. The sun will go dark, the moon will not be seen, stars will be falling, heavenly bodies will be shaken and planets will go out of their normal orbits. Thus we are seeing the signs by the establishing of the state of Israel and the return of Jews from all over the world is an indication of the coming end times.

Jesus explains that believers must be on guard and ready for Him to come at any moment. He will come suddenly and swiftly. There will be no last chance for repentance or bargaining. The choice each person has previously made will determine their eternal destiny. Christ’s followers are not to let their minds and spirits be dulled by careless living or the foolish pursuit of pleasure. No human knows the date He will come but we are told to be ready at any time.

Deuteronomy 30:1 – 5 – “When all these blessings and curses I have set before you come on you and you take them to heart wherever the LORD your God disperses you among the nations, and when you and your children return to the LORD your God and obey him with all your heart and with all your soul according to everything I command you today, then the LORD your God will restore your fortunes and have compassion on you and gather you again from all the nations where he scattered you. Even if you have been banished to the most distant land under the heavens, from there the LORD your God will gather you and bring you back. He will bring you to the land that belonged to your ancestors, and you will take possession of it. He will make you more prosperous and numerous than your ancestors.”

    In response to your article; I offer the following two verses from the kjv bible.
    Rev 16:16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
