I believe God is about to do something miraculous for Israel and for the world to see. That is to say, I believe that God is about to allow present day Israel to overcome all of the enemies that surround it, and those enemies that live within their borders. This will be coupled with a return of Israel to see through the eyes of humble faith, that the Messiah, Yeshua, that is Jesus Christ, whom their fore-fathers crucified, is actually their own Savior.
How is that be possible? It is plausible on the basis of prophesy in the Book of Zechariah.
In the book of Zechariah the next to last book in the old testament) chapter 12, The Lord God promises to "make Jerusalem a cup of staggering in all the surrounding peoples." (verse 2, ESV. The prophet goes on in verse 7 to say, "And the Lord will give salvation to the tents of Judah..." In verse 9, "And on that day I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem." In verse 10, "And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and pleas for mercy so that when they look on me, on him whom they have pierced, they shall mourn for him, as one mourns for an only child, and weep bitterly over him, as one weeps over a firstborn. " In chapter 13, verse 1, "On that day there shall be a fountain opened for the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, to cleanse them from sin and uncleanness." This seems to indicate a massive repentance on the part of the Jewish people. It seems a completion of their faith by the realization at last of their greatest hopes.
I could quote the rest of chapter 13, and I hope you will read it. Read about the Shepherd who was struck, about the sheep that were scattered, about the whole land being cut off, about the testing of the people by fire, and then about them calling upon the Lord and His response, "I will say, 'They are my people'; and they will say, 'The Lord is my God."
How can I believe that this is true for today in 2016? Because the people of Israel have never yet humbled themselves as a whole to say that the one "whom they have pierced" is their Messiah. So, this prophesy is not yet fulfilled. And, There are nations today as in yesteryear that have surrounded Israel with threats of death. But, they have not yet been destroyed. So, this prophesy, I believe, is yet to happen.
What better time than now?
