The headline on the Arutz 7 news website in Israel says that new immigrants recently arriving in Israel are part of the fulfillment of Bible prophecy that foretold the in-gathering of the Jewish people to the land of their forefathers in the days before the coming of the Messiah. Among the most recent new Israeli citizens were a group from the United States, actually 21 different states, and the group included a 5 month old baby and a 95 year old grandmother, all citizens of the United States that have a Jewish background and wanted to spend the rest of their lives in the land that they say God has provided for the Jewish people. 

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Jews returning to the land of Israel today to become citizens of the land of their forefathers is a part of the process of the fulfillment of Bible prophecy for the last days.

Recently on a very popular Israeli news website, Arutz 7, the headline of one of the major stories was, new immigrants fulfill prophecy of the ingathering. It was a photo story showing hundreds of Jews from America that had decided to come home to the land of their forefathers, the land of Israel. Many of them carried signs telling of their love for Israel and a number of these new Israeli citizens even got off of the airplane and kissed the ground of the Jewish state. The web news site wanted to feature the story of Jews coming home to Israel because they believe it is a part of Bible prophecy being fulfilled and they are correct. 

Over the last 100 years, out of 100 nations of the world, Jews have been making their way into the Jewish state of Israel even before it became a state. The ancient Jewish prophet Ezekiel wrote 2500 years ago that the Lord, in the last days, will bring the Jews from wherever they are in the world into the land that He had promised them. That prophecy is found in Ezekiel 34 where 18 times the Lord says that He will find the Jews where they had been scattered some 2000 years ago and bring them into the land of their forefathers. Ezekiel 37:8 foretells of the Jewish state being revived and Ezekiel 36 tells the Jews of the land that God will give them in the last days. 

The arrival of Jews in Israel to immigrate, to come home, is, as the Israeli website reported, the proof that Bible prophecy is being fulfilled.
