Israel In Prophecy

What God has promised to do for natural Israel, He has promised the same thing to you as the spiritual Israel, the Church. Every promise you read about the nation of Israel, He has made a covenant that is even greater for you. What God has promised to Israel, He has promised to you.

Key Scriptures:

I Chronicles 17:21-22; Exodus 19:6; Romans 9:4-5; Revelation 5:1-5; John 4:22; Genesis 12:3; Romans 11:18-19 Jeremiah 30:3; Isaiah 11:11-12; Matthew 23:37-39; Zechariah 12:10; Deuteronomy 7:6-7; Jeremiah 31:35; Revelation 12:1-13:2-18

Key Points:

What makes Israel so unique:

  1. God set out to redeem them from other nations. There is no other nation that God has ever set apart. Everything starts and ends with Jerusalem.

  2. The Savior of the world came through Israel. You owe your whole spiritual inheritance to the Jewish people. Without them, there would be no apostles, patriarchs, Bible, prophets, 10 Commandments, savior, or salvation. We owe all our spiritual inheritance to the Jewish people. Even in Heaven, Jesus is still a Jew.

  3. Their whole history is foretold in prophecy. 13 prophecies about Israel have already come to pass, and three more are yet to be fulfilled. Keep your eye on the nation of Israel.

    1. Revival is coming to Israel. The Last Days are not all doom and gloom. God promised revival in the Last Days for the nation of Israel.

    2. The devil fears the Return of Jesus Christ more than anything else. Jesus cannot come back unless Israel possesses and inhabits the city of Jerusalem; that’s why so many attacks come upon them.

    3. You are special. In the same way Israel has been loved, chosen, and protected by God, God has promised to love, choose, and protect His Church.

Final Thoughts:

After the Church is raptured, the Antichrist will be raised up and negotiate a peace treaty with Israel. The Antichrist will be Satan in the skin. He doesn’t just want casualties; he wants converts. He will control the world and its wealth. You must decide if you will worship the Lamb or the Beast. There will be one Great White Throne Judgement, and you must plead your case, or you can just plead the blood. Jesus’ Return is coming soon. Will you be ready?
