JD: Independence Day has been about Israel’s return to the land at this time in history. So remind everybody David what we do know about the circumstances surrounding Israel’s last departure and how does the final return relate to future events?
DJ: Well Jimmy the third departure was because of the Roman General Titus who was the son of the Emperor Vespasian and he laid seas to Jerusalem for five months in 70 AD and he destroyed the city and leveled the second Temple and that was foretold by Gabriel in Daniel 9:26. Jesus also foretold this in Matthew 24 when he told his disciples a surly I say to you not one stone shall be left here upon another that shall not be thrown down.
Even after Israel’s religious leaders conspired with the Romans to kill Jesus and Jesus arose from the grave and ascended into heaven as we know Peter still offered the kingdom to the nation in Axes 2 and again in chapter 3 when he says this, repent therefore and be converted that your sins maybe plotted out so the times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord. And actually Israel’s final return was prophesied in the Land Covenant in Deuteronomy 30:4 & 5 where we read you are driven out from the farthest parts under heaven from there the Lord your God will gather you and God will bring you to the land your Father’s possess.
In the Davidic Covenant in II Samuel 7 we read this, I will appoint a place for my people Israel and will plant them and they may dwell in the place of their own and move no more nor shall the sons of wickedness suppress them anymore. So Jimmy Israel’s full re-gathering will be during the Tribulation and all the Covenant promises to them all will be fulfilled during the millennia and they will be able to celebrate true independence while depending fully on their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, their Messiah.
JD: David James explaining the third return of the Jewish people to the land that God has given them.
We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
The Bible tells us that during the 4,000 year history of the Jewish people they will depart their land that God had given them three times and return to that land. Today the Jews are in the third return which is the last one according to the Bible. The ancient Jewish prophet Ezekiel foretold this return some 2,500 years ago in Ezekiel 34. This return is tangible evidence that we are in the days of the Rapture.
