1. Hi Everyone,

    I believe that 1948 marked a very significant prophetic fulfillment for Israel. I am not saying that from the time of Yeshua up until then God’s calendar was put on hold and then started again in 1948. I personally believe that this time was allotted in order for the good news to be spread through out the world.

    With today’s technology, knowledge, tension in the middle east, and many other events, we can see that indeed we are living in the end of times. Many may say that they are just coincidences or some kind of evangelical propaganda, but there is no denying it. I’ve heard orthodox Rabbis also say that they believe that the time of the Messiah is coming. For that reason we must pray that the Jewish people may come to know Yeshua as the Messiah and that they may proclaim, “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord”

    Many Blessings,


  2. Hi Dr. Brown et al.,

    I also like the phrase “truly, but not fully” (besides “already and not yet”). For example, we are truly justfied, truly sanctified, and can truly enter the presence of God truly, if not fully.

  3. Does’nt Jewish tradition say there will be 2000 years of Messianic rein or kingdom on earth before the end of time?

  4. RE: The last days…

    Peter did say that with the Lord a day is like a thousand years…so that to my mind is like God thought of it on, say, a Tuesday, and He accomplished it on a Friday…

    Does that make sense to anyone else?

    2 Peter 3:8 (New King James Version)

    But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

  5. I believe the nation-state of Israel IS a miracle, and I do believe it is a fulfillment of OT prophecy.

    Even though most Jews are secular-minded, I believe in due time, the Lord will draw them to Him in a spiritual sense, and they will, as a people, regardless of where they live, experience a kind of awakening to their Jewishness and what that means, especially, in relation to Him. Right now they are culturally Jews more than religiously Jews, but I believe there will be a mass spiritual turning to God in the latter days, again, as per prophecy. Of course, there are some who will not repent or change, regardless.

    I think it’s important that believing Gentiles continue to express the Messiah’s love for His people, not only because it grieves us that they are the rightful heirs yet continue to lose out on His blessings of atonement in the present, but also because God impels us to love them. His hand remains outstretched, even when He has to bring judgement.

    The time of Jacob’s trouble will be a winnowing process and I believe there will be a harvest of souls as a consequence, and Gentile believers will play a role in that. I think it’s obvious that Gentile believers have let down Jewish people in the past, because of some very mistaken ideas (ignorance, prejudice, replacement theology), but I can see that there is a kind of awakening on our part, as well, and it is clear that we MUST NOT do so again. The “how’s” of this should become clearer over time.

    I have heard the argument that prophecy happens only because people work to make it happen, but I can’t see how (generally disorganized) humans are capable of bringing large, far-reaching events into play to such an extent that we could bring prophecies about by sheer will. The fact that we simply couldn’t is a testament to God’s intervention.
