In a surprise move, the Israeli Defense Force moved into Hevron and evacuated a number of Jewish families that claim legal ownership to a home purchased from a Palestinian owner and this Israeli government move has sparked violent acts on both sides of the controversy from the Israelis and the Palestinians.
The Jewish community in Hevron says that will continue to purchase land and buildings in Hevron which they claim has belonged to the Jews for 4000 years since Abraham arrived there and actually paid cash money for this piece of property.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
The evacuation of Jews from Hevron, the oldest Jewish community in the world, is a precursor to an end time scenario that can be found in Bible prophecy.
As I stated earlier, the community of Hevron is the oldest Jewish community in the history of our world and this is documented by none other than the Bible (Genesis 13:18). Abraham arrived in the Promised Land from Ur of the Chaldees and set up his home in Hevron. The Jewish patriarch even purchased a burial site for his wife Sarah and paid in today's money some 750,000 dollars for a cave where he and Sarah are buried along with Isaac and Jacob and their wives (Genesis 23).
When Joshua led the Children of Israel into the Promised Land 3500 years ago, God gave Caleb the community of Hevron (Joshua 14).
For the first 7 years of the reign of King David's 40 year leadership of the people of Israel, David ruled and reigned from Hevron (II Samuel 5).
This is a brief history of the Jewish community of Hevron, a name that is used 73 times in the Bible.
This recent evacuation of the Jewish families from their legal residency in Hevron by the Israeli government, is a lead up to the end times events that were foretold many centuries ago. Ezekiel 36 mentions God's plan for the Jews and the land that He has given them which they will possess forever and that promise was made to Abraham in Hevron.
The controversy surrounding Hevron today, is evidence that Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
