Israel – A nation born in a day.
King James Version (KJV)
37 The hand of the Lord was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones,
2 And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.
3 And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord God, thou knowest.
4 Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.
5 Thus saith the Lord God unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:
6 And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the Lord.
7 So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.
8 And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.
9 Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord God; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.
10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.
11 Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.
12 Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.
13 And ye shall know that I am the Lord, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,
14 And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the Lord have spoken it, and performed it, saith the Lord.
Think Holocaust. When you see pictures of the Holocaust, tell me that the description above does not fit those pictures. And God says in Ezekiel 37 in the Vision of the Dried Bones… That He will give them life and bring them back to the land of Israel.
May 14 1948 – Israel was born. After being scattered – as the Bible predicted, Israel was back in her land (again as the Bible predicted) after the Vision of the Dried Bones (again as the Bible predicted).
Oh yeah… And that’s in the last days. We’re also told that they won’t leave their nation again. And think about how many wars the Arabs have tried to push Israel out of her land since 1948. Five Arab Countries declared war on Israel – the day after they became a country!! And let’s not forget the six day war – ya’ll should read up on that. Sounds like the Hand of God to me. But anyway, Israel is a huge prophecy people! Predicted thousands of years ago.
If that doesn’t make you pay attention to the Bible.. I don’t know what will :).
