If you believe the Bible, as I do, the return of Israel as a nation
after 2,000 years is a greater miracle than all that occurred during
That’s what God says in Jeremiah 16:14-
“Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that it
more be said, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel
out of the land of Egypt;
“But, The LORD liveth, that brought up
the children of Israel from
the land of the north, and from all the lands whither he had driven
them: and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto
Think about that.
The reformation of the
nation of Israel 64 years ago and the
ingathering of dispersed Jews from all over the world is a greater
miracle than all of the following:
-the parting of the Red
-the manna from heaven;
-the water from rocks;
-the giving of the law on Sinai.
I don’t think most Christians
and Jews in the 21st century fully
appreciate what it means to be witnesses to such an awesome
Sometimes when we read the Bible we scoff at the
blindness of the
ancient people to what was happening at the time. But I think we’re
just as guilty as they were – if not more so.
The miracle of the
ingathering is greater than the miracles of the
Exodus. That’s not what I say. That’s what the Lord says. And it’s a
miracle we have been privileged to experience firsthand. But that
privilege comes with a responsibility – a responsibility to recognize
what God is doing and to get behind that mighty work.

We have too many
Christians in America today who don’t get that. They
are not standing with the children of Israel, our brethren whose
covenant we experience and share by virtue of bring grafted in, as
Paul explains in the book of Romans.
Christians who don’t
appreciate their connection to this miracle are
Christians who ultimately don’t appreciate the gift of salvation and
the redemption offered to the whole world. They don’t fully
appreciate who their Lord and Savior is – why He came and that He’s
They don’t appreciate where He’s coming.

When and why is He coming? He’s coming at a time
when Israel is
facing disaster, and He’s coming to save Israel.
theology is not only a dangerous theology. It is a
shallow one – one that tried to render most of the Bible as
irrelevant and portray God as a covenant breaker who changes His mind
and even His personality.
But today much of the church is
confused about who we are as
believers and the rich biblical heritage that serves as the
foundation for our faith and our hope.
Some Christians aren’t
sure our Savior is coming back at all – let
alone that He’s coming back to Israel to save it and preserve
Some Christians are confused about whether the modern
Israel is truly a manifestation of prophecy at all.
Christians even see more connection between their faith and
Islam than they do between their faith and Judaism, even though
Christianity makes no sense except in the context of the messianic
promise from the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
behoove all of us as believers to read and study the rich
and abundant scriptures dealing with the Second Coming, because I
suspect there will be believers unprepared and caught
Many people missed His first coming because they were
looking for a
conquering king. I suspect many Christians will not recognize the
conquering king when He returns because they will be looking instead
for the suffering servant.
What is Yeshua going to do when He
The Bible tells us He’s going to meet out justice. His
going to be stained in blood. He’s going to destroy nations. He’s
going to enforce His will with a rod of iron.
Are we prepared
for that Yeshua?
He’s going to judge individuals and nations, as
we learn in Matthew
25. The nations will be divided into sheep nations and goat nations
largely on the basis of how they treated His precious Israel.
will bless those that bless thee and curse those that curse
Our Christian faith – and our very redemption – is
constructed on a
foundation of promise by the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Without
an understanding and appreciation of that connection, our faith
doesn’t even make sense. Our savior did not just spring up
spontaneously one day in Bethlehem 2,000 years ago without
expectation. He came as the long-awaited Jewish messiah, the King of
the Jews, out of the line of David, and He will eventually rule on
David’s throne for 1,000 years in the future.
By the way, He
didn’t come to start a new religion called
Christianity. He came to fulfill the law and the prophets and offer
Jews and non-Jews alike salvation.
If you believe the Bible is
the inerrant word of God, you will also
acknowledge that when He returns you and I and other believers are
going to be keeping the Sabbath and and observing the Feast of
Tabernacles. We will be visiting Jerusalem regularly – and if we
don’t we won’t get any rain. I think some Christians are going to be
shocked at just how Israeli-centric our life will be in the
How many Christians in America today really
understand just how
Jewish our Savior and our God really is? He won’t be eating ham
sandwiches at the church potluck.
How many of us will recognize
Him when He returns? (© 2012
