On the eve of Independence Day in Israel in Jerusalem in particular, they celebrated the 65th anniversary, the birthday for the Jewish state of Israel with a large fireworks display and messages from both the prime minister and the president.

The Israelis will today, Independence Day in Israel, go to the national parks, go to the museums and have a day of celebration for this 65th birthday of a Jewish state referred to as a  miracle according to world leaders who say never in the history of the world has a people dispersed to the four corners of the earth been able to return and establish themselves once again as a state among the many nations of this world.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The Jewish people in the homeland of their forefathers as a nation among the nations of the world is indeed evidence that Bible prophecy has been fulfilled and will be fulfilled in the future.

Out of 108 nations of the world, Jewish people over the last 100 years have made their way back into the homeland of their forefathers. These Jews from every nation of the world have gathered together because they believe God has given them a piece of real estate and He has promised them they would be a nation forever, thus they have established the Jewish state of Israel.

There are those who doubt this is a fulfillment of Bible prophecy but when one looks at the book of Ezekiel 37:7-11, it indicates that that apocalyptic passage of scripture, talking about the bones coming together, the flesh on the bones, and the breath of life being breathed into them, is indeed referring to the Jewish people. Ezekiel 37:11 says that the bones are the whole house of Israel and indeed the bones coming together would refer to the regathering of the Jewish people with the flesh on the bones, the restoration of a Jewish state. In fact, in Ezekiel 34, 18 times the Lord says "I will". I will find my people wherever they have been scattered, I will gather them into the land of their forefathers, I will feed them like a good shepherd feeds his flock in the land that I promise to give to the Jewish people.

These prophecies being fulfilled today are evidence to the entire world that indeed God's Word is absolute when it gives Bible prophecy or pre-writes history as to what will happen. As we watch as the Jewish people celebrate their 65th birthday as a nation among the nations of the world it is tangible evidence that Bible prophecy will indeed be fulfilled.
