In the national elections in Israel, the nation elects the legislature called the Knesset, made up of 120 members, which will be a cross-section of Jews and Arabs from the state of Israel, they will form a coalition government that will then elect a PM to govern for the next four years.
National elections in Israel are a unique experience at the least and they have great significance in how the Jewish state will survive living in a very, very tough neighborhood surrounded by 400 million Arabs and Muslims.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
National elections in Israel have a political significance and do indeed set the direction for the Jewish state for the next couple of years, but these Israeli elections are also tangible evidence that Bible prophecy has been fulfilled and will be fulfilled into the future.
National elections in Israel allows the people of the Jewish state to elect a legislative body, the Knesset, which will then in turn elect a PM. What happens is that there will be a simple majority of the Knesset, 61 members of the 120 who vote in favor of one person to be PM. After the election of the Knesset, the Israeli president appoints one of the political party leaders to work to put together a coalition government. At that time all the backroom meetings take place and the "horsetrading" begins the process of the election of a PM. The process itself along with the national election in the Jewish state of Israel is tangible evidence that Bible prophecy is being fulfilled.
Ezekiel 37:7 is a prophecy of Jews being regathered from all over the world over the last 2000 years. Ezekiel 37:8 is referring to the restoration of a Jewish state which happened and was fulfilled May 14, 1948. With the Jewish state restored and a national election for Israel's legislature and PM, the world is able to witness what God's Word said would happen when he said I will regather the Jewish people to the land of their forefathers and I will restore them to a Jewish state called Israel. These prophecies being fulfilled then give us a basis to believe that all other yet fulfilled prophecies in the Bible will be fulfilled as well.
Jews holding national elections in their land is indeed evidence that Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
