A History of Prophecy in Israel
About this deal
Although not every evangelical adopts an uncritically pro-Israel position, the majority interpret developments on the ground through the grid of prophesy. As a result, every action of the Israeli settlers is idealised as they are pitted against a Palestinian people who are God’s adversaries according to the salvation history called dispensationalism.
Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and you will be commended. For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason.”The more than 90 named signatories – four were women, the rest men – included the current president, and eight former presidents, of the Southern Baptist Convention, among other influential evangelicals. Sorry – the answer is “NO” if you said Arabs (a true Semitic people). Many Arabs are Muslim, but there are Muslims in every country and from every culture, just like Christians). Trying to work out a complicated timeline and place these texts into it is difficult task and leads (I think) to a view of the bible that would be for the initiated only. Reply My point in saying so was not to illustrate that Israel is the same as China in some way (they have far more differences than similarities), but to highlight that Israel is not uniquely singled out for doing these things.
And that’s been a long tradition of sort of hedging your bets and getting whatever you can in terms of sort of interest and eyeballs, by declaring that there’s something significant here, but once you start saying specific things and you’re sort of on the hook, it doesn’t turn out that way.” The eschatological Jerusalem in Isa 54 is said by Paul in Gals 4 to be the Jerusalem above to which all NT believers belong. The Lord’s return will fulfill a prophecy the angels gave when He first ascended to heaven from the Mount of Olives: “‘This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.’ Then they returned to Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet” (Acts 1:11-12). But to understand what is at stake in this current episode of Israeli aggression, it is important to place Israel’s latest incursion on Palestinian territory in its ideological context.If you say you are a “Jew” today…. you are also saying you’re 85-90% Ashkenazi Eastern European from one of several countries in Eastern Europe who have mostly Khazarian ancestors. So modern so called “Jewish” people have absolutely no connection whatsoever because they are not even remotely a Semitic people and HAVE NO CONNECTION AT ALL (through Ancestry or by religion) to Abraham and the 12 tribes of Hebrew Israelites. And modern so called Israel has absolutely no connection to ancient Biblical Israel. How DARE THEY even call it today “Israel”. It is an ABOMINATION. That (mostly charismatic teaching) did have some influence on my thinking until I encountered reformed theology; in particular that Jesus is the embodiment of scripture fulfilled covenants, prophecy, types, patterns, themes shadows, types/antitypes all along the longtitudinal scriptural canon flow. He is the true temple, true vine, true shepherd, true place of sabbath rest, true shalom, true Israel ( Son) true bread, true (new) wine, true exodus ( from death to new -eternal life) true righteousnes, true atoning sacrifice, true lamb, true scapegoat, true high priest, true saviour, true way, true Truth, I could go on but I’ll stop by saying if one sees the temple of Ezekiel as something yet to be built then you are saying Jesus has not yet fulfilled all prophesy. He has. He is the New Temple and we are the sacrifices. Reply This booklet will be of interest to anyone trying to make sense of the current situation, and wanting to relate it to Scripture in any way. The claim that Ezekiel prophesied the existence of the modern State of Israel is made by many, and this booklet is an essential tool in assessing whether than claim is valid. And so the crude way of doing this is a pastor will say something like: ‘Look at the Roman Empire and how they persecuted the Jews and Rome fell. Look at the British Empire and how the British didn’t treat the Jews well, and how they fell. Look at the Nazis and how they persecuted the Jews, and they fell.
