The ever increasing number of Jews immigrating to Israel may be a result of the coronavirus pandemic

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: The Israeli's are expecting a huge wave of new immigrants this year. Boy, that is interesting and it sure is Biblical.

DD: It is Jimmy and you know to do with the virus they're pointing out that around 20 times as many Jews have died or become infected with it in the New York area as in Israel. The same in France and the same in Britain. The number of Israeli's that were infected were relatively low. Again, a small country and people are use to obeying government leaders in a times of crisis.

You might say well then why not stay in New York and why not stay in Paris. Why go to the Middle East where there are these wars? Well there's a Jewish State there too and it's a strong state and the people are committed to it. There's every reason to think that immigration will rocket after this Jimmy. I think it will. And of course there's anti-Semitism. We had the New York Mayor sort of blaming the whole Jewish community for a Jewish Orthodox funeral that attracted a lot of people in the New York area. Many Jewish leaders were very unhappy with that. So anti-Semitism out there but Israel the Jewish homeland remains in the opinion of many Jews the safest place to be on earth.

JD: David I just got a text this morning from a friend who recognized the news coming out of New York a very high ranking rabbi, a very well known rabbi is encouraging all of the Jews there to immigrate to Israel. This is a part of that motivation and it may be how God is using all of this to make His plan come about.

DD: All things work together for good in the Lord's plan. He has overall control and we can be thankful for that in these sorts of times. But yes indeed it's an interesting contrast between being a Jew in New York or in Paris or in London and being one in Israel. It's looking better and better all the time to be back in the Jewish homeland. I think we're going to see quite a surge of immigration once things calm down a little bit and the airlines get back to normal and that sort of thing.

JD: David Dolan with great insight into the reason for the expected increase in the number of Jews immigrating to Israel this year.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

God's will according to the Bible is for all Jews to come to the land that He has given them. Then the Lord promised to dwell among His chosen people, the Jewish people forever, that's Psalm 132:13 & 14.

The Lord said through the prophet Ezekiel that He would gather the Jews to the land that He has promised to give them from the four corners of the earth, that's Ezekiel 34 where the Lord repeats His will a number of times. God may well be using the coronavirus pandemic to fulfill His will.
