I just saw some recent reports that might alarm some people – you know, those folks who think the Jews rule the world.
- U.S. News recently ranked Israel as the eighth-most-powerful nation based on defensive strength, strong international alliances and economic and political influence.
- Bloomberg ranks Israel as the 10th-most-innovative country based on research and development and high-tech companies.
- The United Nations, no fan of Israel they, rank Israel 19th of 180 nations for food security and nutrition.
None of this surprises me, as a regular visitor to Israel. Nor does it make be alarmed. In fact, it makes me exceedingly happy.
And, you might be surprised to learn that its rankings are going to go higher – much higher. One day soon, Israel will be the little tale that wags the big dog – planet Earth.
While the Jews don’t yet rule the world, as some crazy, anti-Semitic conspiracy theorists suspect, they will soon – or at least one Jew will.
His name is Jesus, and when He returns, He will be the reigning King of Israel, which hasn’t had one for a very long time. And guess where he’ll rule from? Jerusalem, the capital of Israel. Donald Trump’s timing is impeccable as always.
Many Christians don’t realize this. Even fewer Jews do.
But that’s what the Bible clearly tells us – both Old Testament and New.
You can get the full story in my latest book, “The Restitution of All Things: Israel, Christians and the End of the Age.” It’s all about this coming kingdom on Earth marked by peace, justice, long life, prosperity and something very close to what the Garden of Eden was like. And it will last for 1,000 years.
There really are some things you should know to begin preparing.
I know it all seems improbable – and that’s an understatement, from the world’s point of view. But the world’s point of view is irrelevant where God is concerned. He created the earth, he saw it fall and He’s got an irrevocable plan to restore it to the way it was intended to be – perfection.
Have you ever heard a sermon on this?
Have you ever done a Bible study on this?
Have you ever read a book on this?
Well, it’s about time.
Because a lot of things are falling into place.
You no doubt saw the reaction of the world when President Trump announced the U.S. was recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and that we were moving our embassy there soon.
By the reaction of most nations, you might have thought Trump had lost his mind. But all he did was recognize reality. Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. It’s always been the capital of Israel. No other nation in the history of the world had had Jerusalem as its capital – and no other will.
But, with a few exceptions, the world continued to live in fantasy.
Nation after nation lined up in condemnation.
But that’s just evidence of how close we are to seeing Israel become truly the center of the world – politically, spiritually, culturally.
Zechariah 12:3 tells us what will happen just before the Messiah returns. “And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.”
That’s where we are right now!
Jesus could come back any time.
So, it’s time to learn about your destiny in an Israel-centric world restored to perfection by Jesus.
It’s certainly a story every Christian should know.
