Following the day that the state of Israel stops to remember its fallen soldiers of all of Israel's wars, this Jewish state celebrates its 64th birthday as a modern day nation among the Moslem nations of the Middle East. Many of the Middle Eastern nations say that the Jewish state is not a legitimate nation and these Arab states have stated that they would like to see the demise of the Jewish state of Israel to be replaced by a Palestinian state.
The political and military leaders of Israel say they have no plans to abandon what many say God has given the Jewish people and others declare that the Jews are back home in the land of their forefathers which has been a Jewish land for 4000 years.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
The 64th birthday of the modern day state of Israel is absolute proof that Bible prophecy has and will be fulfilled.
This independence day in Israel is the 64th birthday of the modern day Jewish state an event that will see all Israelis celebrating this day with family gatherings, picnics, and trips to the beach. While the body politic of Israel celebrates their birthday, Israeli leaders, both politically and militarily, are preparing for the war threat given by the Islamic leaders to wipe Israel off the face of the earth. Other world leaders recognized Israel's potential danger in a Middle East war, however, at the same time, they recognize that this was a miraculous event that took place when Israel became a state in 1948 after 2000 years of absence in the Biblical lands of their forefathers.
The prophet Ezekiel wrote 2500 years ago that this indeed would happen as revealed in Ezekiel 37 when the Lord promised that He would find the Jews scattered all across the earth, regather them into their land, and restore them as a nation. Ezekiel 34 is the record of 18 times when the Lord said that He would bring the Jews back into the Land that that God had promised them. In Ezekiel 36:22 the Lord states that He did this not for the sake of the Jewish people, but for His holy name sake. Also in Ezekiel 36, God promised the land to the Jewish people. However, Ezekiel 38 reveals that Israel will face an attack by the Islamic nations in an effort to destroy the Jewish state.
Israel's 64th birthday is indeed a reminder that Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
