Germany's FM recalls the Holocaust as his country honors Israel's 60th birthday

Germany's FM Frank-Walter Steinmeier addressing the German Parliament said that the Nazi slaughter of the six million European Jews during the Holocaust meant that his country had a particular responsibility for helping to ensure Israel's security.

The German Parliament held a special session to recognize Israel's 60th independence day and Germany's FM emphasized his country's commitment to Israel and praised the Jewish state on its attempts to inspire peace in the region. Steinmeier said the engagement for the future derives from responsibility for the past, adding that Germany was acting towards assisting in the peace process in the Middle East.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Germany's recognition of responsibility for the Holocaust and its honoring of Israel's 60th birthday has a unique connection to Bible prophecy for the End Times.

Germany's FM Steinmeier in his address to the German Parliament to honor Israel's 60th birthday, reminded the world of the Nazi slaughter of six million European Jews, accepting responsibility for the past. Germany believes that this acceptance of the past now gives them the responsibility to ensure the security of the Jewish state among its Middle Eastern neighbors and will work towards that end. This report highlights two significant events with prophetic importance. Germany's recognition of Israel's 60th birthday is tangible evidence that Ezekiel's prophecies of the rebirth of a Jewish state in their ancient homeland is in the process of being fulfilled, Ezekiel 34, 36-37.

Steinmeier's reminder of the Holocaust is also a reminder that the worst Holocaust for the Jewish people is yet to come. Zechariah 13:8 reveals that in the future Tribulation Period, two of every three Jews will be killed, which means eight million Jews will die. That is worse than the Nazi Holocaust.

Germany's recognition of the Holocaust and Israel's 60th birthday is evidence that Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
