The managing editor of Time Magazine crowned Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu as the King of Israel in its cover story which profiled the Israeli PM and marked the outstanding achievement of brokering a large coalition government which at the time was the largest coalition government in Israel's history.
Though not truly the King of Israel, PM Netanyahu has his place in Israel's history in a modern day version of a 4000 year history of the Jewish people.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
Time Magazine crowned Israeli PM Netanyahu as the King of Israel, a title not for Netanyahu but a title reserved for the coming Messiah of the Jewish people according to Bible prophecy.
In a previous international poll, Benjamin Netanyahu, the two-termed PM of Israel, was proclaimed to be at that time the most powerful Jew in the world. In the first term as PM of Israel, Netanyahu actually had his leadership go down in flames. Most people saw Netanyahu as a one term PM and were amazed to see him return to power to lead the Jewish state. In his second chance to lead his country, Netanyahu created the largest coalition government in Israel's history, an achievement that made PM Netanyahu a historic figure; however it did not make him King of Israel as Time Magazine crowned him.
There is One who will be given the title King of Israel and in fact He will be given the title King of Kings and that One is the God-man, Jesus Christ, Revelation 19:16. When Jesus Christ returns to the earth in the clouds, Matthew 24:30, He will be given a Kingdom, in fact worldwide dominion, Daniel 7:13-14. At that time, Jesus will be the King of Israel, the long expected King of the Jewish people. This King, Jesus Christ will build His Temple in Jerusalem where He will rule and reign forever, Zechariah 6:12-13.
Benjamin Netanyahu may have been a powerful political leader, but not King of Israel. The true King is coming!
