We Are Living out What the Bible Prophesied

Article excerpt

SECRETLY, many Christians are watching Israel, especially those like me who at times lack the gumption to really reveal my very deep-seated beliefs.

So I appreciate the writings of Robert McBeath "No lasting peace until the Messiah returns" (QT 18/05) and also reading the writings of Andrew Bolt (QT 21/05) who although not claiming to be a Christian tackles topics that are controversial.

In about 60 years, Israel has vaulted from not being a nation at all, to being a flourishing First World nation. Israel leads the world in economic, agricultural, financial and technological status.

This was foretold with the symbolism of the figs and the fig tree in Jeremiah 24: 2-4.

We are living out what I read in the Bible. How can I not believe. There is no alternative.
