Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu yesterday urged Jews to move to Israel from all over the world. This followed the killing of a Jewish man outside Copenhagen’s main synagogue. Prior to this, extremists attacked the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo on January 7 and was followed the next day with the shooting of a policewoman just outside Paris. On January 9, the gunman who killed the policewoman took hostages at a kosher supermarket in Paris and four Jews were killed. Netanyahu is developing a $45 million plan “to encourage the absorption of immigrants from France, Belgium and Ukraine”.
Most people either won’t give news like this a second thought or will have a pro/con attitude toward Jews being called out of many countries. Most will miss the point that this was predicted back around 700 BC. The Bible has a lot to say about Israel becoming a nation (which occurred May 14, 1948) and about dispersal followed by regathering. The event of Jews returning to Israel will be around the time that this world will be judged and Jesus will come to reign and restore peace. What we see in the news tells us we are close to the end. The Bible tells us the time of the end will be unlike anything this world has ever experienced in severity since it began. Time is truly running out.
