Who has ever heard of such things? Who has ever seen things like this? Can a country be born in a day or a nation be brought forth in a moment? Yet no sooner is Zion in labor than she gives birth to her children.
God promised and He fulfilled! This Thursday the Nation of Israel celebrates its miraculous rebirth 74 years ago.
As we remember Israel’s heroes, our fallen soldiers on the eve of Remembrance Day, those that have given their lives to protect their nation of Israel, we honor their courageous legacy on whose shoulders our nation stands, while we celebrate God’s faithfulness in fulfilling His promises to restore His nation.
Compared to the past two years of lockdowns, curfews, and restrictions that didn’t allow us to celebrate Israel’s Independence Day as Israelis are used to – flooding the streets; loudly and joyfully – this year is going to be more joyous than ever. With no more restrictions, the nation of Israel will celebrate together something that is simply as profound as a fulfilled promise made by God to His people thousands of years ago.
There is truly a deep sense of fulfillment in the air each time this historic day approaches, because this nation’s birth, restoration, and even its very existence is nothing less than a divine miracle; God’s fulfillment of ancient biblical prophecies.
Israel has lived through seventy-four very turbulent years since its historical rebirth, as well as the history that preceded its establishment in 1948, which was also plagued with countless obstacles.
However, God cannot be mocked; He promised that Israel would be born from its ashes, and it will be the first phase of its rebirth. The one that will follow will be a spiritual one.
In one day, 74 years ago, we were starkly reminded that though generations may pass, God remains forever faithful and He will keep His word. Israel is alive and is here because of His unfailing love and faithfulness.
And now, since so many prophecies regarding Israel have come to pass, we are praying and waiting for the last, but most important prophecy to come to pass – the SALVATION OF ISRAEL!
then they shall know that I am the Lord their God, who sent them into captivity among the nations, but also brought them back to their land, and left none of them captive any longer. And I will not hide My face from them anymore; for I shall have poured out My Spirit on the house of Israel,’ says the Lord God.
He reminds us, believers and followers of Jesus, that the fate of the nations is intricately linked with Israel’s destiny. Their “blindness” was in part a blessing for the rest of the world, as a way to ensure as many nations as possible get saved and enter God’s fullness.
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.
Israel is still entering its millennial calling. The restoration of the nation of Israel is ongoing, and God isn’t done with His people. The fullness of His glory is yet to be revealed through the much-awaited salvation of His people of Israel.
Thank you so much for your unwavering friendship and support of our nation, as we’re working towards reaching the nation and people of Israel with the message of Salvation!
