As rockets fly, planeloads of Jews are arriving in the Middle East

Three thousand American citizens are leaving the comfort and security of the US to make war torn Israel their home even as rockets slam into Israel and Israeli reprisals force Lebanese to flee the border region and parts of Beirut.

Former Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu met these most recent arriving American Jews and told the new Israeli immigrants that they were the best answer to Hizbullah and the former PM pointed out the symbolism of arriving in Israel during a war. A rabbi at the welcoming ceremony told the new immigrants that Israel was the motherland. The rabbi added that Israel is the safest place in the world for Jews.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Three thousand Jews arriving in Israel at a time of war is a page out of Bible prophecy for the End Times. A major effort has been underway over the last several years to have more and more American Jews make their way to the land of their forefathers.

The three thousand to come home, as many posters read as the American Jews deplaned at the Ben Gurion airport in Israel, are made up of Jews from all walks of life and also of all religious preferences. One newly arrived immigrant said that God could have put Israel in Texas, but instead He put the Jewish state in the midst of their enemies to teach them that their security comes from one source, Almighty God. These new arrivals to Israel are at the least a partial fulfillment of Bible prophecy for these End Times.

God told the Jewish people through His prophet Ezekiel that He would search the world for the Jews where they had been scattered and He would then bring them into their homeland. In fact, the Lord made the statement, "I will", eighteen times in Ezekiel 34. Ezekiel, again by God's instruction, told the Jewish people that the present situation with the nations that are now attacking, or at least supporting the attackers, would try to drive them out of His promised land, that's Ezekiel 38:1-18.

Three thousand newly arriving American Jews are indeed a page out of Bible prophecy. Bible prophecy that will be fulfilled.
