Perhaps you have never carefully studied Bible prophecy, but you need to know that Israel is the central focus of God's prophetic program leading up to the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
In fact, the book of Daniel dogmatically teaches there is a future seven year period of time determined upon Israel. The Bible indicates that during this seven year period of time the nations of the world will enter a peace agreement that seemingly secures Israel.
Now, without getting into a lot of detail in this short post let me just say that the "table is spread" and everything is in place for the fulfillment of these amazing prophecies. Israel is in her homeland in a national posture again; as well, she is threatened by enemies who surround her with the intention of wiping out the nation. The need for peace lest the whole world be plunged into the nightmare of global conflict has never been greater.
Indeed, Israel is God's timepiece and the clock is ticking toward the soon return of Christ first for his church and then in great power and glory as he comes to deliver Israel and establish his kingdom on earth.
Are you ready should he come today?
