This week’s Pastor to Person was written by Pastor Caleb Beller.
[Eze 37:12 NKJV]…’Thus says the Lord GOD: “Behold, O My people, I will open your graves and cause you to come up from your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.
On May 14, 1948, in Tel Aviv, David Ben-Gurion proclaimed the State of Israel, establishing the first Jewish state in 2,000 years! Only one other time in history had a people and nation been so defeated and dispersed and yet return. The Jewish exile & return from Babylon happened just as God said it would. Although that 70 years must have seemed like a lifetime, this prophecy from Ezekiel would span roughly 2,500 years of Jewish History!
The rebirth of Israel is arguably the greatest modern-day miracle of our generation However more than a miracle it was to be a sign
Jesus in His teaching to His disciples about His return said this. Mat 24:33 Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door.
The establishing of Israel back in the land is a fulfillment of Ezekiel 37! It reminds us that God says what He means and means what He says! It is also a reminder that we are to be preparing for Jesus return! As we look at these signs let us remember like Noah, we can’t stop the rain, but we can build the boat! Let us live in the light of prophecy, remembering Jesus words Mat 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
