Israel in Today’s End Times

By Chris Schang

Perhaps one of the most interesting aspects of the end times in which we live is the rebirth of the modern state of Israel. The prophet Ezekiel recorded in the Bible that in the end times God would bring the Jews back into their ancient land and that once he had done that he would never allow the to be destroyed or scattered among the nations again. Unlike some teachings that have crept into the church today that teaches that Israel has been replaced by the church but this simply is not so. God declared that he would bring the Jews back into the land here in the end times and that he would gather them from the four corners of the Earth in order to fulfill his plans for the redemption of man, both Jew and Gentile.

Despite bring the Jews back into the land of their forefathers from ancient times, the Bible is clear that the Jews would return to the land a second time in unbelief as the have until this time rejected Jesus as the promised Messiah that was part of God’s plan for the redemption of mankind. The Jews spent the last almost 2,000 years “wandering” the Earth in other nations of the world. But despite their unbelief, God knew beforehand that they would fall into unbelief and so he devised a strategy to get his “stiif necked people” to eventually recognize Jesus as their Messiah. God plans to use the coming 70th week of Daniel or what we also call the seven year Tribulation period as a means in which to judge unrepentant believers, both Jew and Gentile. At the end of the 70th week of Daniel, the Jewish people will finally recognize their promised Messiah as they will see the one that they “pierced” coming in the clouds with great glory in order to establish his rule on Earth. The Bible says that they will mourn when the recognize their mistake.
