For 1900 years, up until 1948 there was no nation of Israel. The Jews and the Israelis were scatted around the world in AD 70 by the Roman Empire, and the land was renamed and given to the Arabs.
God could not fulfill the majority of prophecy concerning the last days, until the nation of Israel was living in Israel again. There are many Bible passages such as Ezek 11:16&17 which refer to this.
Ezek 11:16 “Therefore say: This is what the Sovereign LORD says: ‘although I sent them far away among the nations and scattered them among the countries, yet for a little while I have been a sanctuary for them in the countries where they have gone.’ v17 Therefore say: This is what the Sovereign LORD says: ‘I will gather you from the nations and bring you back from the countries where you have been scattered, and I will give you back the land of Israel again.’”
The very first blessing that God gave, was given in Genesis 12 to Israel, and to those who bless Israel.
Gen 12:2 “ I will cause you to become the father of a great nation. I will bless you and make you famous, and I will make you a blessing to others. v3 I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you. All the families of the earth will be blessed through you.”
Israel needs our prayers today as never before, as she is surrounded on every side by enemies who have promised that they will drive all the Jews into the Mediterranean Sea and exterminate them all.
If you covet God’s blessing in your own life, then start praying today that God will bless and protect Israel, His chosen people and His Holy land, and God will bless and protect you.
