The Jerusalem Post, the world's largest English language newspaper, has published its first annual list of the 50 most influential Jews in the world and they have named Israel's Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu as the world's most influential Jew. The prime minister's office issued a statement saying that Netanyahu was honored to be named to the top position of the top 50 Jews and that this honor demonstrates the historic change that Zionism has brought about in the condition of the Jewish people.
The Israeli prime minister said that a scattered powerless people has been able to reassert its national life in its own sovereign state in its ancestral homeland as a people among the family of nations in this world.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
The recognition of Israel's Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu as the world's most influential Jew is evidence that Bible prophecy has been fulfilled and will be fulfilled.
When one stops to consider Jewish leaders in our world today men like Ben Bernanke who is chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank, White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, and the founder of Google Sergey Brin among others, it is an honor for Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu to be named the world's most influential Jew.
The presence of a Jewish state among the nations of the world is impressive when you stop to consider that when the nation was founded in 1948 only 5% of the worlds Jewish population lived in the new state and today Israel contains the largest Jewish community in the world. This report is evidence that Bible prophecy has been fulfilled.
The ancient Jewish prophet wrote of a time in history when there would be a Jewish state in their ancient homeland. Ezekiel in chapter 34 of his prophecy said that God would gather the Jews from wherever they had been scattered and bring them into the land that He had promised them. In fact, in Ezekiel 36 the prophet refers to the land 35 times and in verse 22 quotes the Lord as saying that this had to happen for His holy namesake. However, Ezekiel 38 and 39 speak of a troublesome time for Israel in the future but it also promises that the Jewish people will survive as well throughout eternity.
Israel's prime minister named as the world's most influential Jew is indeed evidence that Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
