The Jewish State of Israel Celebrates its 61st Birthday

By Jimmy DeYoung

Millions of Israelis crowded the streets of the Jewish state to celebrate their 61st birthday on this independence day for a reborn nation of ancient people that have been gathered from over 100 nations of the world which many world leaders refer to as a modern day miracle.

Even with the threat of a radical Moslem leader, the president of Iran, President Ahmadinejad calling for the Jewish state to be wiped off the earth, the Jewish people, more than 5.5 million of them, have a hope for peace and security in a region of the world prone to conflict.

Israeli PM Benyamin Netanyahu addressing the nation told Israelis that this Independence Day marks the fulfillment of the dreams of millions of Jews, they once again have a Jewish state.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

As the Jewish people in Israel celebrate their 61st birthday, they are also making known to the world that Bible prophecy has been and will be fulfilled.

On the Jewish calendar, which is different than the Christian calendar, this is the day that marks the rebirth of the Jewish state 61 years ago. When David Ben Gurion announced to the world in 1948 that Israel was a state among the other nations of the world, he realized the journey had just begun for the Jewish people in the rebuilding of their nation after 2,000 years of being scattered to the four corners of the earth. Ben Gurion said it was a miracle of God and the fulfillment of Bible prophecy.

The ancient Jewish prophets wrote 2,500 years before the fact that God would give His chosen people, the Jewish people, a nation once again and in the land of their forefathers. Ezekiel wrote that God would gather these Jews to Israel, Ezekiel 34. The prophet also said in Ezekiel 36 that the nation would be in the land that He had given their forefathers. The Lord had promised the Jewish patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob that the Jewish nation would be forever, Genesis 15, 26 and 35.

The 61st Independence Day of Israel is indeed tangible evidence that Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
