The Israeli Knesset has chosen the symbol for Israel's 60th birthday

The Israeli Knesset's Symbols and Ceremonies Committee decided recently on Israel's official symbol for its 60th anniversary which features a child holding a white and blue sheet of cloth swirling into the number 60. This symbol will be the trademark for the year-long celebration of the Jewish state's 60th birthday, celebrating the rebirth of a state of Israel after almost 2,000 years with Jews scattered across the world.

The Israeli government has many plans for this 60th anniversary which may be interrupted by the events unfolding in the Middle East as it relates to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as well as the continuing threat from Iran.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The fact that the Jewish state of Israel is celebrating its 60th birthday is absolute evidence that Bible prophecy is being fulfilled.

Out of more than 100 nations of the world over the last 100 years, Jews from around the world have been slowly but surely making their way back to the homeland of their forefathers. Even as these Jews from around the world gather together to rebuild their own nation, their ancient Jewish language has also been restored so that Hebrew is the official language of the Jewish state.

The last 60 year history of this modern-day state of Israel has been marked by conflicts and full-scale wars, but the state of Israel continues to stand strong living among her enemies.

A number of the ancient Jewish prophets pre-wrote this modern-day history. Moses wrote that the Jews would return to their land after they had been punished for almost 2,000 years as recorded in Deuteronomy 28, 30. Micah wrote that God would punish the Jews, but then bring them back into their ancient homeland, Micah 7. Ezekiel, in chapter 37, said that the Jews would be regathered, that's the bones coming together as talked about in verse 7. They would be restored as a Jewish state, that's the flesh covering these bones that have come together as recorded in Ezekiel 37:8.

With Israel celebrating their 60th birthday, there is indeed evidence that Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
