Israel's First PM: The state of Israel is a refuge for every Jew

This year is the 100th anniversary of David Ben-Gurion's immigration to what was then Turkish Palestine and at an international conference at Ben-Gurion University in the Negev Dr. Yariv Ben-Eliezer, Ben-Gurion's eldest grandson, said that the Zionism his grandfather believed in would persist as long as the state of Israel continued to exist as a refuge to every Jew that wanted to come to Israel.

According to Ben-Eliezer, Ben-Gurion's vision of the land, to which he immigrated 100 years ago, was shaped by the Zionist ideology that pervaded his home in Poland. Ben-Eliezer said Ben Gurion's home taught that a Zionist mean living in Zion, Israel, not the diaspora.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

David Ben-Gerion's declaration that Israel was to be a refuge for every Jew was actually setting the stage for the fulfillment of Bible prophecy, Bible prophecy for the Jewish people and the state of Israel. David Ben-Gurion's immigration, or aliyah in Hebrew, to what was then called Palestine and controlled by the Turkish-Ottoman Empire was evidence of his understanding that as a Zionist he was to live in the land of his forefathers, the land of Israel.

Jews from around the world continue to make aliyah, which was Ben-Gurion's dream. This report, the reality of the partial fulfillment of Bible prophecy for the Jewish people and the land of Israel.

The ancient Jewish prophet Ezekiel wrote 2,500 years ago that God would search out the world for the Jewish people, gather them into the land of Israel, make the land be fruitful, and the people, God's chosen people, to prosper in the land, that's Ezekiel 34:11-31 and Ezekiel 36. God has kept His promise for the sake of His holy name, that's Ezekiel 36:22.

In the Time of Jacob's Trouble, yet future, all Jews will make aliyah, they will immigrate to the land of their forefathers; a land of refuge for every Jew. Bible prophecy is now and will be fulfilled.
