These 10 Bible prophecies were fulfilled in 1948 when Israel became an independent, united nation for the second time in history, and for the first time in 2,900 years.

1. Jacob's descendants would regain control of Israel
Bible passage: Amos 9:14-15
Written: about 750 BC
Fulfilled: Since 1948

In Amos 9:14-15, the prophet said that there would come a time when the exiles of Israel would again have Israel as their own land and that they would never be uprooted again. Amos lived about 2700 years ago, during a time when the people of Israel were being forced out of their homeland by a succession of foreign invasions. Despite many centuries of exile, many Jews returned to Israel and reclaimed sovereignty over a portion of their ancient homeland. This declaration of independence, in 1948, triggered a war with the surrounding countries, which objected to the presence of a Jewish state. On May 15, 1948, the day that armies from the surrounding countries invaded, Azzam Pasha, the Secretary General of the Arab League, said "This will be a war of extermination and a momentous massacre which will be spoken of like the Mongolian massacres and the Crusades." Similar quotes were uttered by others during the war of 1948-49 and during the two major wars that followed. Despite its tiny size, Israel prevailed in these wars, preventing its people from being uprooted again, as they had been in ancient times.

Amos 9:14-15
I will bring back my exiled people Israel; they will rebuild the ruined cities and live in them. They will plant vineyards and drink their wine; they will make gardens and eat their fruit. I will plant Israel in their own land, never again to be uprooted from the land I have given them," says the Lord your God.

2. Israel would be brought back to life
Bible passage: Ezekiel 37:10-14
Written: between 593-571 BC
Fulfilled: 1948

In Ezekiel 37:10-14, the prophet receives a vision in which Israel was seen as a scattering of dried-up bones. In this vision, God tells Ezekiel that the bones (Israel) would be brought back to life. Just as Ezekiel had prophesized about 2600 years ago, the Jews were brought back to the land, and the country of Israel was brought back to life. Israel re-established sovereignty in 1948, a mere three years after the end of the Holocaust, during which the Nazis killed about one-third of the world's Jewish population.

Ezekiel 37:10-14
So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet--a vast army. Then he said to me: "Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. They say, `Our bones are dried up and our hope is gone; we are cut off.' Therefore prophesy and say to them: `This is what the Sovereign Lord says: O my people, I am going to open your graves and bring you up from them; I will bring you back to the land of Israel. Then you, my people, will know that I am the Lord, when I open your graves and bring you up from them. I will put my Spirit in you and you will live, and I will settle you in your own land. Then you will know that I the Lord have spoken, and I have done it, declares the Lord.'"

3. Isaiah spoke of a Israel being reborn in one day
Bible passage: Isaiah 66:7-8
Written: perhaps between 701-681 BC
Fulfilled: 1948

In Isaiah 66:7-8, the prophet foreshadowed the re-birth of Israel in 1948. Isaiah describes a woman giving birth before going into labor, and he speaks of a country being born in one day. This accurately describes what happened on May 14, 1948 - when the Jews declared independence for Israel as a united and sovereign nation for the first time in 2900 years.

During that same day, the United States issued a statement recognizing Israel's sovereignty. And, only hours beforehand, a United Nations mandate expired, ending British control of the land. During a 24-hour span of time, foreign control of the land of Israel had formally ceased, and Israel had declared its independence, and its independence was acknowledged by other nations. Modern Israel was literally was born in a single day.

Isaiah said the birth would take place before there would be labor pains. And that too is precisely what happened. A movement called Zionism began in the 1800s to encourage Jews worldwide to move to Israel, which at that time was called Palestine. Within hours of the declaration of independence in 1948, Israel was attacked by the surrounding countries of Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq and Saudi Arabia.

When reading Isaiah 66:7-8, keep in mind that Israel's status as a sovereign nation was established and reaffirmed during the course of a single day, and that it was born of a movement called Zionism, and that its declaration of independence was not the result of a war but rather the cause of one.

Isaiah 66:7-8
"Before she goes into labor, she gives birth; before the pains come upon her, she delivers a son. Who has ever heard of such a thing? Who has ever seen such things? Can a country be born in a day or a nation be brought forth in a moment? Yet no sooner is Zion in labor than she gives birth to her children."

4. Israel would be re-established as a united nation
Bible passage: Ezekiel 37:21-22
Written: between 593-571 BC
Fulfilled: 1948

In Ezekiel 37:21-22, the prophet said that God would one day bring the people of Israel back to Israel, as a united nation. This might have been a shock for Ezekiel. He lived about 2600 years ago. At that time, the people of Israel had already divided themselves into two separate kingdoms. And, both kingdoms had been conquered by foreign invaders, who forced many of the people, including Ezekiel, into exile. But, when Jews reclaimed sovereignty in 1948, they did so as a united people, creating one nation - Israel.

Ezekiel 37:21-22
and say to them, `This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I will take the Israelites out of the nations where they have gone. I will gather them from all around and bring them back into their own land. I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel. There will be one king over all of them and they will never again be two nations or be divided into two kingdoms.

5. The second Israel would be more impressive than the first
Bible passage: Jeremiah 16:14-15
Written: sometime from 626 to about 586 BC
Fulfilled: 1948

In Jeremiah 16:14-15, the prophet said the second Israel would be more impressive than the first. In many regards, it is. The first time that Israel was established as a country was after Moses led the descendants of Jacob (typically referred to today as Jews) out of Egypt, where they had been enslaved for 400 years. They then conquered Canaan and established Israel about 3400 years ago. But the second time that Israel was established was after the Jews had been scattered far and wide for a few thousand years. This time the Jews had to return from as far away as the United States, China, Russia and South Africa.

Jeremiah 16:14-15
"However, the days are coming," declares the Lord, "when men will no longer say, `As surely as the Lord lives, who brought the Israelites up out of Egypt,' but they will say, `As surely as the Lord lives, who brought the Israelites up out of the land of the north and out of all the countries where he had banished them.' For I will restore them to the land I gave their forefathers.

6. Ezekiel predicted when Israel would be re-established
Bible passage: Ezekiel 4:3-6
Written: between 593-571 BC
Fulfilled: 1948

In Ezekiel 4:3-6, the prophet said the Jews, who had lost control of their homeland, would be punished for 430 years. This prophecy, according to Bible scholar Grant Jeffrey, pinpointed the 1948 rebirth of Israel. Here's a summary of Jeffrey's theory:

1. Ezekiel said the Jews were to be punished for 430 years because they had turned away from God. As part of the punishment, the Jews lost control of their homeland to Babylon. Many Jews were taken as captives to Babylon.

2. Babylon was later conquered by Cyrus in 539 BC. Cyrus allowed the Jews to leave Babylon and to return to their homeland. But, only a small number returned. The return had taken place sometime around 536 BC, about 70 years after Judah lost independence to Babylon.

3. Because most of the exiles chose to stay in pagan Babylon rather than return to the Holy Land, the remaining 360 years of their punishment was multiplied by 7. The reason is explained in Bible's book of Leviticus. (Leviticus 26:18, 26:21, 26:24 and 26:28). In Leviticus, it says that if the people did not repent while being punished, the punishment would be multiplied by 7. And, by staying in pagan Babylon, most exiles were refusing to repent.

4. So, if you take the remaining 360 years of punishment and multiply by 7, you get 2,520 years. But, Jeffrey says those years are based on an ancient 360-day lunar calendar. If those years are adjusted to the modern solar calendar, the result is 2,484 years.

5. And, there were exactly 2,484 years from 536 BC to 1948, which is the year that Israel regained independence.

Ezekiel 4:3-6
(In this Bible passage, Ezekiel is asked by God to symbolically act out the 430 years of punishment)
… Then take an iron pan, place it as an iron wall between you and the city and turn your face toward it. It will be under siege, and you shall besiege it. This will be a sign to the house of Israel. "Then lie on your left side and put the sin of the house of Israel upon yourself. You are to bear their sin for the number of days you lie on your side. I have assigned you the same number of days as the years of their sin. So for 390 days you will bear the sin of the house of Israel. "After you have finished this, lie down again, this time on your right side, and bear the sin of the house of Judah. I have assigned you 40 days, a day for each year.

7. The people of Israel would return to "their own land"
Bible passage: Ezekiel 34:13
Written: between 593-571 BC
Fulfilled: after May 14, 1948

In Ezekiel 34:13, the prophet said that God would gather the people of Israel scattered throughout the world and bring them back to "their own land." After many centuries of dispersion, hundreds of thousands of Jews returned to their ancient homeland beginning in the late 1800s. But, millions more returned after Israel declared independence in 1948. In other words, millions of exiles returned to their ancient homeland which was now truly "their own land" in the sense that it was now a sovereign Jewish state.

Ezekiel 34:13
I will bring them out from the nations and gather them from the countries, and I will bring them into their own land. I will pasture them on the mountains of Israel, in the ravines and in all the settlements in the land.

8. God would watch over the people of Israel
Bible passage: Jeremiah 31:10
Written: sometime from 626 to about 586 BC
Fulfilled: 1948, etc.

In Jeremiah 31:10, the prophet said that God would one day gather the Jews back to Israel and that He would watch over them like a shepherd. Believe what you wish, but there is evidence that God indeed has watched over the re-established nation of Israel. Hours after Israel declared independence in 1948, the surrounding countries attacked, hoping to replace the Jewish state with an Arab state. These countries are much larger than Israel. But tiny Israel prevailed in that war and was able to capture additional land, increasing the land size of Israel by 50 percent. Israel also prevailed in the two other major wars that followed.

Jeremiah 31:10
"Hear the word of the Lord, O nations; proclaim it in distant coastlands: `He who scattered Israel will gather them and will watch over his flock like a shepherd.'

9. Israel's army would be disproportionately powerful
Bible passage: Leviticus 26:3, 7-8
Written: perhaps around 1400 BC
Fulfilled: 1948-49, 1967, etc.

In Leviticus 26:3, 7-8, the Bible says that the army of Israel would have a supernatural power to prevail during times of conflict, if the people are obedient to the Lord. This Bible passage says that 5 people would be able to chase away 100 people, and that 100 would be able to chase away 10,000. Is there any proof to this incredible claim? Judge for yourself:

Example 1: Within hours of Israel's declaration of independence in 1948, Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Iraq, and Lebanon invaded Israel. The combined population of those countries was at least 20 million at that time. Israel had fewer than 1 million Jews. Even so, the Jews won the war and expanded the size of Israel by 50 percent.

Example 2: During the War of 1967, Israel attacked the air force bases of the surrounding countries and took control of Jerusalem for the first time in about 2000 years. They also seized additional territory. That war lasted a mere 6 days.

Example 3: On Oct. 6, 1973, Israel was attacked by Egypt and Syria. Other countries later joined the attack. But the Jews were able to push back the attacking armies and occupy land outside of Israel's borders.

Leviticus 26:3, 7-8
"If you follow my decrees and are careful to obey my commands, … You will pursue your enemies, and they will fall by the sword before you. Five of you will chase a hundred, and a hundred of you will chase ten thousand, and your enemies will fall by the sword before you."

10. The fortunes of the people of Israel would be restored
Bible passage: Deuteronomy 30:3-5
Written: perhaps 1400 BC
Fulfilled: 1948, etc.

In Deuteronomy 30:3-5, the Bible said the Jews would be scattered worldwide and that they later would return to their homeland and have their fortunes restored. This prophecy began to be fulfilled in modern times during the late 1800s when many Jews returned to Israel, from as far away as China and the United States, Russia and South Africa. Israel declared independence in 1948. Today, Israel is among the world's most prosperous countries. In 1999, for example, Israel's per capita Gross Domestic Product was twice as prosperous than the neighboring countries.

Deuteronomy 30:3-5
then the Lord your God will restore your fortunes and have compassion on you and gather you again from all the nations where he scattered you. Even if you have been banished to the most distant land under the heavens, from there the Lord your God will gather you and bring you back. He will bring you to the land that belonged to your fathers, and you will take possession of it. He will make you more prosperous and numerous than your fathers.



:think:

Doubtful
1. Time of Gentiles not fulfilled
2. Israel is to be a nation; not a state in which it currently is. "this is not semantics"
3. Those running the state of Israel reject The lord's anointed and that he came in the flesh


"Either way time will tell ;and yes I am possibly holding back information"



Psalm 83 King James Version (KJV)
83 Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.

2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.

3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.

4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.

5 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:

6 The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes;

7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre;

8 Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah.

9 Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison:

10 Which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth.

11 Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna:

12 Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession.

Friendly Greetings!

I'd like to suggest that Am. 9:14-15 is NOT yet fulfilled.

After all, Am. 9:15 says that the Israelites would NOT ever be uprooted from the land. However, the removal of the Israelites from Gaza (which occurred AFTER 1948) was a clear case of Israelites being uprooted from land promised to them, it seems.

That's why I'd like to suggest that the great and mighty return of all Israelites to the land is yet future.

Also, If Eze. 37:12 refers to the literal resurrection (at Christ's return), then of course Eze. 37:12 would ALSO be yet future.

Also, Eze. 37:21-22 refers to ALL Israelites being united in the land. However, there are millions of Israelites presently scattered all across the globe. Again, Eze. 37:21-22 (I suggest) is yet future.

And, Jer. 16:14-15 refers to a future "greater exodus" that will evidently be even greater than the former exodus. However, given that Israelites are presently scattered across the globe, I again suggest that this "greater exodus" has not yet happened.

Again, Eze. 34:13 refers to Israelites who will be brought out of foreign countries and back into the promised land. However, Israelites are still scattered all over the world. Thus, I suggest Eze. 34:13 is yet future.

Also, Dt. 30:1-8 is clearly NOT yet fulfilled. Dt. 30:8 refers to 100% ALL (Heb. "kol") Torah commands again being obeyed by all Israelites in the land of Israel. However, a temple is clearly not yet restored, and Levitical/priestly/sacrificial Torah-sanctioned activity is clearly not yet restored (in particular). Thus, Dt. 30:1-8 is most assuredly yet future.

Nevertheless, 1948 was surely a significant event in history! But, I suggest it was merely a miniscule leaf (Mt. 24:32), whereas the full Israelite tree shall be restored (per these prophecies, and many others) in all her glory in the future.

Anyway, just wanted to set before you this alternative interpretation for your consideration....

I appreciate the considerably charitable conversation I've seen throughout this forum, by the way.

blessings....

All praises to AHAYAH BA HASHAM YASHAYAH WA RAACH!

Yes we HEBREW ISRAELITES are still in lands of our captivities.

Again, 1948 was significant for the gentile jewish people and had nothing to do with us.

We are a NATION, not a state.

Prophecies of us coming here and of us leaving here is about to begin.

As posted before, our 400 years H.R. 1242 in this land ends soon. 1619 to 2019

Prophecy of us coming here:
Genesis 15:13
[13]And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;

Prophecy of us leaving:
Jeremiah 30:3
[3]For, lo, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, saith the LORD: and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it.

We come DIRECTLY out of captivity!

Jewish people are NOT us.
Revelation 2:9
[9]I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
Revelation 3:9
[9]Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

Yes the 2ND Exodus will begin soon!
What blessing it will be!

Yes Amos 9:14-15 Happens after we return home from captivity!

Can you show me in history where the jewish people in Our Land Israel served for 400 years and then returned home.

Everyone knows Hitler's run lasted only 13 years.
But after that I haven't heard of anything.

The Bible says there are signs of curses the MOST HIGH said would be upon HIS people that will let you know who they are?

Do you know of the curses on the Children of Israel?
So I can see if they fit those people who are saying they are the jews?

The Bible itemizes the Curses so
There is no guesswork as to figuring out who they are!
Apply the curses and they will fit HIS people!

We may not be who you want US to be but WE ARE HIS PEOPLE!

Hi there!

Not sure why you appear to be saying that "Jewish people are not" "Hebrew Israelites".

After all, Paul was Jewish, and Paul was a Hebrew Israelite.

So, maybe you meant something else.

The 1948 Jewish people ARE NOT Hebrew Israelites
They are gentiles.
CHRIST in Scriptures tell us they are NOT!
They don't fulfill a future prophecy that was given to Abraham about his seed from the LORD!

Genesis 15:13
[13]And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;
Acts 7:6
[6]And God spake on this wise, That his seed should sojourn in a strange land; and that they should bring them into bondage, and entreat them evil four hundred years.
400 years!
This is not the 430 years in Egypt
Exodus 12:40
[40]Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years.

They do not fulfill any prophecy.
We were all told by media they do but According to scripture they do not!
Not One!

Show me when they were in bondage (slavery) during those 400 years? As we were! Starting in 1619 for us.
You show me their journey.
I can show you ours according to scripture!

WE the Children of Israel are still under the curses put on US by THE MOST HIGH for our disobedience!

Using scriptures Let's do a comparison and see who fits these curses.
That way we both can identify them.
I'll list them one at a time and let's see who they fit.
Let me know when you're ready?

Why assume "430" is not "400"? After all, those numbers are identical, if you compare them using a single Significant Digit.

Thus, you've made an assumption about Significant Digits, but I see no reason to accept that assumption.

Do you have a good reason?

And, why do you attach "Hebrew" to the term "Israelite"?

After all, Scriptural usage of the term "Israel" does not require "Hebrew" genetics as a condition of that usage.

So, if you're making a genetics argument against the legitimacy of modern-day Jews being included in "Israel", then I'd say that's unbiblical, given that Scripture does NOT impose a genetic requirement for acceptance within Israel.

Anyway....interesting to see your viewpoint....

I have to defend my Nation against those who come against us.
I'll end it with this scripture:
Romans 9:26
[26]And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God.

Given to me by WA RAACH the HOLY SPIRIT!

Just read your post so I'll reply.
Scriptures says what it means and means what it says:
430 yrs does not mean 400!
7 days does mean 8!
40 days and nights does't mean 41!
3 days does not mean 4!
The Bible is Precise!

2nd
We Hebrews Abraham's seed are called after the name that AHAYAH GOD gave to Jacob, which is Israel.
Jacob was Hebrew as we His Children are.
Hebrews:
Exodus 9:1
[1]Then the LORD said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh, and tell him, Thus saith the LORD God of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they may serve me.
Israel:
Genesis 32:28
[28]And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.
We are The Children of Israel!
Hopes that answers your questions.

And 430 and 400 are PRECISELY identical, if we are using ONE SIGNIFICANT DIGIT.

Do you understand "significant digits"?

Perhaps not, because your response did not even address the term or the concept.

This scripture clearly shows that the 430 years already happened!

The Word WAS means past!

Exodus 12:40
[40]Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years

Theses two scriptures clearly shows future prophecies!

The Words SHOULD n SHALL
Are future!

Genesis 15:13
[13]And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;
Acts 7:6
[6]And God spake on this wise, That his seed should sojourn in a strange land; and that they should bring them into bondage, and entreat them evil four hundred years

You can't make the Bible mean what you want it to mean!

Isaiah 28:9
[9]Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts.

Ok....But if Ge. 15 uses future tense to refer to the Egyptian bondage, and if Ex. 12 uses past tense to refer to that same bondage, then BOTH Ge. 15 and Ex. 12 still refer to the same event.

So, you haven't shown that these two passages refer to different events.

See my point?

Bondage in Egypt WAS 430 years!
Also Egypt was not a strange land to our forefathers. They knew it well.

Bondage in this land IS 400 years!
As scripture says this land is NOT ours! Because we were brought here and didn't know it. Therefore it is strange to us!

2 Timothy 2:15
[15]Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Then study Ge. 15 more closely, please.

Ge. 15:13 does not say "strange land". It says "strangers in a land". Thus, the Israelites were strangers (Heb. "ger", i.e., temporary inhabitants) in Egypt for 430 years (which is also PRECISELY 400 years, accurate to ONE SIGNIFICANT DIGIT), even though they obviously knew some geographical facts about Egypt.

So, you still haven't proven your point.

Instead, you relied on "strange land", when Ge. 15:13 actually says "strangers in a land".

And, you continued to ignore the SIGNIFICANT DIGITS consideration which defuses your claim.

Please address the objections I've raised against your position here...

thanks!

Acts 7:6 says strange land!

Genesis 15:13 says a land that is not theirs!
Is that not a strange land if it's not their?

I thought you would understand that.
