The nation of Israel comes to a stop to remember the men and women who have died defending the Jewish state

Since 1860 when the first Jewish settlers began establishing Jewish neighborhoods outside the Jerusalem city walls, 22,437 men and women have been killed in defense of the land of Israel.

During the ceremonies to mark and to mourn the fallen soldiers of Israel, this Remembrance Day, on the eve of Israel's Day of Independence, the entire nation stopped and honored the heroes as the nationwide sirens sounded to call attention to the day and to the fallen and their bereaved families. Israel's President Shimon Peres said that on this day, the Israeli soldiers have wrought a miracle in human history and made their country a peace seeking state.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The 22,437 fallen soldiers of Israel have indeed participated in a modern day miracle as foretold in Bible prophecy.

Once a year, the nation of Israel stops for two minutes to honor the fallen of all the wars of Israel since the late 1800's and this year is no exception on Remembrance Day. As the sirens sounded today, the entire Jewish nation stood to remember men and women who have given their lives as part of a miracle that brought the Jewish people back together from all over the world. Some may say, well how do you call that a miracle if so many Jewish people have been killed over these many years of watching this miracle come to pass? It is a miracle how the Lord searched the world for all of His chosen people and found and gathered them back into their land. It is a miracle how God once again gave this land, the land of their forefathers, back to the Jewish people.

It is a miracle because 2,000 years before the fact, God gave men this scenario for the Last Days, a scenario that is now coming to pass right before our very eyes. I'm talking about Jewish prophets like Ezekiel in chapter 37 and the prophecy of the Valley of Dry Bones. In addition to that, Jeremiah 31 where He said I will find my people and bring them back into their land.

The ancient Jewish prophets were right and will be right in the other prophecies for the Last Days yet to be fulfilled.
