The Balfour Declaration, sent as a letter to Lord Rothschild by A J Balfour, on November 2nd 1917, proposed a ‘national home for the Jewish people’ in Palestine. But when it was written, on behalf of the British government, not many Jews lived there.
Today the population of the Israel is over 8 million.
Israel now leads the world in many areas of scientific research, agriculture and advanced technology.
Despite efforts to destroy the Jews, their survival as a nation and their return to their original homeland was clearly predicted in the Bible thousands of years ago!
Some Bible prophecies about the Jews
Bible prophecies were written over 2000 years ago. Many of these prophecies are about the Jews. Some describe what would happen to them if they disobeyed God’s commands – which they did – so they have suffered persecution and been scattered around the world. Other prophecies predicted their regathering to their ancient homeland just before the the return of Jesus Christ.
So the existence of the State of Israel today proves that God is in control of world affairs and that Jesus will return as promised, to set up God’s worldwide Kingdom on earth very soon.
