Israel under Fire - In my last column I mentioned one of the books I recently enjoyed. This time I will mention one more. It is called “Israel under Fire”. The book is collaboration by John Ankerburg and Jimmy DeYoung. It is an up to date work that mixes the Middle East news of our day with Bible prophecy. If you are a student of prophecy, you definitely need to read a copy of this book. It debunks the ideas of Replacement Theology which suggests that with the advent of the Church, God has focused His attention on the Church and no longer on Israel. A careful reading of Scripture will indicate that in no way is God through with His chosen people. One would have to purge the book of Zechariah and many other passages to come to the erroneous conclusions of Replacement Theology.

   Twenty five hundred years ago God gave a series of prophecies concerning His people. If you will read Ezekiel 37:21-22 , you will find three of them that God will:

“—take the sons of Israel from among the nations where they have gone.”

“---gather them from every side and bring them into their own land.”

“---make them one nation in the land.”

These three prophecies were fulfilled in May 1948. The fourth, the restoration of Jerusalem to an undivided city happened in June 1967. All of this has been within my lifetime. Clearly the stage is set for the return of Jesus and the end times scenario laid out in His teaching.

   The book also includes interviews with current and past Israeli and Palestinian leaders which serve to authenticate just how God is working this all out. This is extremely exciting reading which brings the news reports of today in line with ancient Scripture and helps us to realize that God has supreme control over His world. But, with all of this going on, Americans would like to know the role of the United States in prophecy relating to all of the recent happenings. I’m afraid that I don’t have good news. We will have to cover some of my concerns next time.

            Until then, blessings,

                                                            Ben
