Biblical prophecy is happening so fast in our day that it takes one’s breath away! Things are happening that even a year ago seemed impossible!
Yesterday morning someone forwarded a news article to me that seemed almost impossible a couple short months ago. Scripture prophesies the restoration of the House of Israel and the return to the land of the lost tribes, yet seemingly the whole world, from the Jews themselves to all of Christendom have stood against this future reality in one way or another. Then, I read,
The government announced the formation of a special committee to investigate the relationship between the state and gentiles, many of Jewish descent, who have shown an interest in Israel and the Jewish people.
In an advertisement that ran in several local newspapers, including The Jerusalem Post, the Diaspora Affairs Ministry described the exploratory committee and issued a call for public proposals regarding relations between Israel and “large groups around the world that have an interest in the Jewish people even if they are not entitled to rights under the Law of Return.”
The remainder of the article from the Jerusalem Post gives more details of not one, but two committees, one directly connected with the Knesset, that are exploring a greater understanding of who might be a real asset to build bridges with, even if they are not Jewish or have rights under the current law. There appears a genuine desire to understand and to ‘map’ the people groups that are interested in standing with Israel and love the land and people enough to be considered ‘potential’ citizens. (Though the word ‘citizen’ is not used.)
My impression is this: Apparently, some groups within the government have a concern for the state and are exploring how to build the populous with people that will adhere to what it means to be ‘of Israel’ even if the physical lineage is a bit murky. I.e., they are willing to let the proverbial camel’s nose under the tent of ‘aliyah.’
Time will tell, but I strongly suspect that as the world grows increasingly antiSemitic and Israel needs dedicated bodies to fill their increasing land area as Abba brings to fulness His promises to Abraham (Euphrates to Nile, Mediterranean to +/- Tehran), then they will be forced to accept and even embrace those who walk n the ancient paths as brothers and citizens. I.e., aliyah for many currently considered unqualified. All this leads to the fulfillment of Scripture in a real, literal and physical manner!!!
I have to run, but want to share a few more thoughts on this later… maybe in the comments section. Please share yours.
