THE MIRACLE OF THE MODERN STATE OF ISRAEL
By: Gerry Almond
The gospel of Matthew was written to present Jesus as the KING OF THE JEWS.
The gospel of Mark was written to present Jesus as the humble SERVANT
The gospel of Luke was written to present Jesus as the human SON OF MAN
The gospel of John was written to present Jesus as the divine SON OF GOD.
prophecy buffs need to keep in mind these truths when handling the Word
of God as it applies to prophecy and their understanding thereof.
In the Gospel of Matthew, which was addressed to the Jews, Jesus is
seen warning them in chapter 24 that “as it was in the days of Noah, so
shall it also be in the days of coming of the Son of Man”. While
meditating on this verse, it occurred to me that it might be
advantageous to take a look at the 120 years of warning of coming world
destruction as it might apply to MODERN ISRAEL TODAY. The world
at the time of Noah was still close to its pristine condition with a
360 day perfect year rotation causing the almost perfect climate
conditions of creation week. Therefore, 120 years was 120 x 360 =
43,200 days. Applying this to the current times, would the end of
43,200 days from some start point give us the climax of the Jewish
experience with the return of their King Jesus to them? HAS THEIR
KING HAS NOT ONLY COME BUT HE HAS MOVED THEM INTO THE KINGDOM??
I researched and found the following:
first Zionist Congress was held on 8/31/1897 at Basel. Theodor
Herzel, a Jew, and considered the founder of modern Israel, writes on
9/3/1897 of that event that, “In Basel, (Switzerland) I have FOUNDED
THE JEWISH STATE”. Herzel later obtained an appointment with
Ottoman Sultan Abdul Haniel, in which he offered to buy up the Turkish
national debt in exchange for Jewish rights in “the promised land” of
Palestine. He didn’t have the money to do so, of course, but felt
“led” to make the offer just the same. Nothing immediately came
of the offer.
On 11/2/1917, British Foreign Secretary Arthur
James Balfour, in a letter to Lionel Walter Rothschild, a British Jewry
leader, promised in his declaration the establishment of a homeland for
the Jewish people in Palestine (that would not disturb non-Jews living
there). In exchange, the Jews were to SUPPORT Britain’s World War
I efforts against the Ottoman Empire. The declaration was
incorporated into the LEAGUE OF NATIONS, backed by both greater Europe
and the British. .
The first glimmer of rebirth came
November 29, 1947 with a recommendation for a homeland for the
survivors of the holocaust plagued Jews of WW II. This became a
world cause of the newly established United Nations and it paved the
way for the UNITED NATIONS to birth the modern State of Israel on May
14, 1948. The chief supporter and vocal backer of this was the
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA by way of its President, Harry S. Truman.
THUS CAME ABOUT THE MIRACULOUS BIRTH OF THE MODERN NATION OF ISRAEL, still called a State, but we all know her as the nation.
remember that God told Noah to prepare an ark for the saving of his
household. He had 120 years in which to do the job until
destruction of the world. Using this in application to modern
Israel, the 120 years works out like this:
From 8/31/1897 through 12/31/1897 there are 123 days
From 1/1/1898 through 12/31/1900 there are 1,096 days
From 1/1/1901 through 12/31/2000 there are 36,525 days
From 1/1/2001 through 12/31/2010 there are 3,653 days
From 1/1/2011 through 12/8/2015 there are 1,803 days
From 8/31/1897 through 12/8/2015 is exactly 43,200 days.
work of Pastor Mark Biltz identified tetrads of eclipses indicating the
70th week of Daniel’s prophecy ending on 09/25/2015. The angel of
Daniel 12 extended the period by 75 days additionally making the total
time 2,595 days, consisting of 1,260 in the first half, 1,260 in the
second half, 30 days and 45 days additional. From 8/31/1897 there
are 43,200 days through 12/8/2015. This date is the end of the
whole matter for Israel. It is way beyond mere coincidence that
this is so.
when Jesus said “as it was in the days of Noah” He was referring to
ISRAEL. This means that Matthew 24/25 was addressed, not to the
Church, but to Israel in the last days. Using this as fact, there
are 1,803 days remaining after the date of 12/31/2010. This means
that there must be the rapture/sudden destruction within the next
days at the very latest since the center of the 2,520 period is
4/12/13/2012. From there 1,260 days arrives at 9/25/2015 and 75
more days is 12/8/2015. It all fits like a glove based on the
findings of the tetrads of eclipses signifying the 70th week of
Daniel’s prophecy for Israel. The only question for the Church is
where in the remaining days of the first half of the period do we go
home? I think that any day now is an excellent candidate for the
I am satisfied that this is proof positive that we are 813
days into the tribulation days of the first half and approaching the
second half, the GREAT tribulation. It also verifies the signs in
the heavens as being accurate in their value to us, to show us the
lateness of the hour. It verifies the work of Ron Reese who
identified October 29/30, 2008 as the beginning of the
time. I personally think this is the verification of
what we all suspect now.
I repeat, if right now is not the rapture date, it will occur no later than 447 days hence. We will soon see.
Even so, come Lord Jesus!
