Tomorrow, May 14th, is the 69th Anniversary of the rebirth of the Nation State of Israel. Against all odds of probability and yet in perfect keeping with God's promise as recorded in Ezekiel Chapter 37, God has raised a "Valley of Dry Bones" up out of their graves among the nations and brought them back into their own land.
Listen to David Reagan tell the story of how this happened, including the amazing role President Harry S. Truman in making the U.S.A. the first nation to recognize the Jewish State of Israel, just eleven minutes after David Ben-Gurion's declaration.
This element reminds us that God "is sovereign over the kingdoms of men and gives them to anyone he wishes and sets over them the lowliest of men" (Dan.4:17). Amidst the nation's raging today, Israel's existence is both a timely reminder of this truth and an even more timely testimony to the assurance we can have in the prophetic promises still to be fulfilled.
Look up! Your redemption draws near. (Luke 21:28)
