With a strong Israeli economy, and the dropping stock markets in the US, Israeli officials believe that we are on the brink of a new wave of immigrants that will be moving to Israel. In Israel, the economic situation has a great future, with the tourist trade and high technology industries doing well and growing rapidly. Israel’s economy looks to have a bright future, especially when compared to the approaching recession in the United States.
It is believed that with this financial crunch, especially the very religious “Ultra-orthodox” Jewish community will awaken and remember the biblical imperative of immigration to Israel.
Jimmy’s Prophetic Prospective on the News
It doesn’t matter whether Jewish people move to Israel because of a financial crunch, or because the Bible says they must. The end result is that Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
Over the last hundred years, Jews from all over the world have moved to Israel. The reborn Jewish state, which is celebrating its 60th anniversary in 2008, has seen some great periods of Aliyah. Aliyah is the Hebrew word for Jewish people immigrating back to Israel. The big wave of immigration during the 1990s was from Russia - with about 1.3 million Russian Jews immigrating to Israel. There was another wave from Ethiopia, which spanned several years. Following World War II and the Holocaust, Jews from Europe came in great numbers to help establish the Jewish State.
This report is evidence that Bible prophecy is indeed in the process of being fulfilled. The ancient Jewish prophet Ezekiel wrote some 2,500 years ago that the Lord would find the Jews where ever they had been scattered and gather them back to Israel. The Lord says 18 times in Ezekiel 34 that He will find His people and bring them into the land. Ezekiel 36, which refers 35 times to the land of Israel, says that the Jewish people would be brought back into the land of their forefathers - the land where they are living today - the Jewish state of Israel.
Even though it may be because of the financial crunch in the United States today, Jews are making ready to move to the land of Israel, and thus fulfill Bible prophecy.
