Is the Jewish return to Israel a fulfillment of Bible Prophecy?

On Sunday, September 18, former Circuit Overseer, Richard Rawe and other Ex-JWs hammered questions at a Bible Student Elder.   The Bible Student elder answered the question, “Is the Jewish return to Israel a fulfillment of Bible Prophecy?”  As you know, JWs do not believe that Jehovah’s promises of a future return to their land apply to natural Israel.  Bible Students believe the opposite.  Was the Bible Student able to make a compelling presentation?  Was he able to stand up to hours of questions and scrutiny?  Find  out by listening to this remarkable discussion.  Click here:      2011-09-18 God Israel MP3

The new born state of Israel was 50 years old in 1998. What a 50 years! To start with—the rebirth of the state of Israel in 1948 was a miracle of history (Ezek.37:1-11; Luke 21:29,30). Never before has a nation been destroyed, its people dispersed to the ends of the earth, and then, nearly two thousand years later, re-gathered to their homeland and re-established as a nation.

When Israel declared itself an independent state on May 14, 1948, still another miracle occurred. The armies of seven Arab nations marched on the newborn State, boasting that they would “push the Jews into the sea.” Outnumbered 100 to 1, Israel not only repelled the invaders but acquired more of Palestine than was granted in the UN partition plan. Yigael Yadin, Israel’s commander of operations in that war, had a terse explanation of Israel’s victory. “It was a miracle!”

    Yes, I agree. Although the scripture you quoted says they WILL mourn, therefore come to realized that He is the Messiah and currently reigning King, do you thing they will then ACCEPT him? I pray that they indeed do! Either in this system or during Judgment Day that all will be resurrected into. This hope that they perhaps will realize and accept Him in this system which makes me very happy and is basis for cause to for me examine specific aspects of their study of the scriptures in the perception of as if they have accepted Jesus as the Messiah. Which my brothers, amplifies profound implications of spiritual associations!

      Cazinovi,

      I think the Bible evidence for the Jewish people accepting Jesus as their Messiah is overwheling. You can find some great info at this link.

      Also consider this:

      ISRAEL, A BLESSOR NATION

      Isa 27:6 – Israel shall blossom and bud, and fill the face of the world with fruit. (NKJ)

      Zech 8:22-23 – many nations shall come to seek the LORD of hosts in Jerusalem (NKJ)

      Jer 3:17 – Jerusalem shall be called The Throne of the LORD (NKJ)

      Isa 61:5&6 – Other nations will look to Israel as priests and will bring their wealth and services.

      Isa 2:2-4 – People seek the LORD in Jerusalem and worship Him there (Zech 14:16)

      Zech 14:17 – Whoever doesn’t go to Jerusalem to worship will receive no rain (blessings, see also Micah 5:7)

      Zech 8:13 – Israel shall be a blessing

      Gen 28:14 – In Abraham’s seed all the families of the earth will be blessed. Isaac pictures the heavenly seed and Jacob the earthly seed (natural Israel). Blessing will flow both from heaven (Christ & the Church) and earth (natural Israel).

        Overwhelming indeed, however I will have to examine whether these scriptures take place before or after the prophesies of the destruction of 587BC/70AD.. and/if it applies to today as an parallel prophesy. I am open to already established research. 🙂

          Cazenovi,

          I like the way you think. We each need to prove these matters to ourselves from the scriptural evidence.

          • Cazenovi (Bible Student)

            Quite indeed so.

            This is interesting. “Messianic Jewish alliance of America”

            …but they believe in the trinity how does that work?…

            • Peter K. (admin)

              Cazenovi, Sadly many Jewish Christian’s have drunk the Trinity Kool-Aid. Bible Students are in contact with with and finding more Jewish Christians in Israel who accept Jesus as Messiah and the Ransom for all. Since it is illegal for a Jew to be Christian in Israel, they are an underground movement.

    My JW wife recently told me they made an announcement in her Hall that volunteers were needed to go Israel to preach. That made my hairs stand on end!! It sounds rather suspicious to me. Any thoughts?

    • Jacqueline

      Yes, It seems they are asking persons to go to Israel. Also they are asking them to sell their homes and possessions to go to help build the buildings in Warwick New york also. And they will go, hope they are happy. I think the governing body should go to Israel.

    Hello Onesimus, I wish you a safe journey back to your homeland. I have seen many Ads on TV seeking and receiving aid for many to return to Israel.
    Because of this and learning more about Israel’s Destiny, I visited a Jewish temple last week. It was a pleasant yet different experience.The subject of the sermon was “Inscribed in the Body of “Whatever”. I wanted to see if there was any reference to Jesus at all. There was none, but the cong. was very nice and friendly to me. Most live doors or streets from me, so I knew some. I didn’t get the relationship to theme to what the Rabbi was teaching but I got some points and observation of goings on and more insight into Judaism. I have learned in life that knowledge has an important place in understanding God’s Divine Plan for Mankind, but the type of individual that you are matters also. And he did teach that. I will continue to learn more about Israel as I was not taught to consider them at all in modern times in my former religion. I hope you make your journey and thanks for commenting.

      Although this is an old post, I just wanted to say as a student of scripture, the insight Judiaism has in the Old Testament, apart from the disconnect from Jesus, is very profound and has a special spiritual resonance to it. I have come to realize the interrelationship between interpretation and personal application. Judiaism uses various set forms of interpretation to get a full spectrum of examination of scripture on basis of common spiritual aspirations. Now only if they believed in Jesus… Lol

        Cazenovia – It may not be many more years before the Jewish people do accept Jesus as Messiah.

        Zech.12.9-10.nasb “And in that day I will set about to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. “I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplication, so that they will look on Me whom they have pierced; and they will mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only son, and they will weep bitterly over Him like the bitter weeping over a firstborn.”

          I love the sincere Jewish people, the sincere rabbis and their eminent potential. That is that they WILL accept the messiah in due time, on Jah’s time table.

  • Since 1948 when I was 8 years old I have given my life and soul to the LORD now I am 72 years of age tellinews about Yahweh the messiah. In 1948 Israel became a nation and theJews from all over the world returning to the promised land. I know that the holy scriptures were fulfilled. Oh how I longed to be in the promised land among my people. The land which I have dreamt about all the days of my life. Let the Lord Jesus Christ make a way for me to be there. I neede great help from any one ……..thanks
