Hundreds of new immigrants from France have arrived in Israel

Two planeloads of new immigrants from France landed at Ben-Gurion Airport and were greeted by Israeli dignitaries including Israeli President Shimon Peres as well as hundreds of French Jewish immigrants who have already made their home in Israel.

These flights which mark the largest immigration operation this year and the largest from France in several decades were a part of thousands of additional French immigrants who are expected to arrive in Israel before the end of the year. These new immigrants as a part of a special program will spend their first year in Israel assimilating into the Israeli culture by living in groups made up of others who were on their flights and will be involved in a special Hebrew study program that will help these new immigrants become a part of the body politic of Israel.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Record numbers of French immigrants arriving in Israel recently are absolute proof that Bible prophecy is in the process of being fulfilled.

The recent planeloads of French immigrants who arrived in Israel and began the absorption process will assimilate into the Israeli society as have the hundreds of thousands of other immigrants that have arrived in the Jewish homeland over the last one hundred years. These recent French arrivals, the largest in several decades, will learn Hebrew and then become a part of the Jewish state, the homeland of their forefathers. Out of one hundred nations of the world in this last century, Jews from the four corners of the earth have returned to the land of their forefathers. What is unique about this report is that it is part of the process of prophecy being fulfilled in our day.

The ancient Jewish prophet Ezekiel recorded the words of the Lord when He said 18 times that He would find the Jewish people wherever they had been scattered and bring them back into the land of Israel to fulfill His promise to them, Ezekiel 34:11-31. Ezekiel 37:8 speaks symbolically of the Jewish nation being restored after almost 2,000 years with these new immigrants from around the world.

Jewish immigrants from France, the largest group of immigrants in several decades to come from France, is only one aspect of this prophecy of Ezekiel being fulfilled in our day.
