What Does The Bible Say About Israel’s Future?

Commentary by Jack Kelley

Contrary to all the polls and predictions Benyamin Netanyahu and his Likud party have won another election. Some Israeli observers are calling this a landmark victory, because it came in spite of (or maybe as a reaction to) unprecedented external meddling in the country’s election process.

Promises To Israel

Q.  My question involves Jeremiah 31:35-36  In this passage God is speaking to Israel saying that He has given the sun, moon, and the sea as an ordinance…(etc) and that if these ordinances should depart from Him, Israel shall also depart from being a nation before Him.  Here He is apparently affirming that Israel will remain His chosen nation.  And yet that seems to conflict with the fact that during the millennial reign, the sun, moon, and sea will no longer exist, or be visibly functioning.  Can you explain this?

Destroying Iran?

Q. I just read an interesting article about the possibilities if Israel was allowed to destroy Iran. It would prevent Persia from acting out her role in Gog and Magog for a generation, taking us beyond this generation that shall not pass before the Second Coming.   Thus Israel will be prevented,  as no nation can foil God’s prophetic word. Do you agree with this writer’s conclusions?

The Only Two Step Healing

Q. First let me say how much I love your web site and how much you have taught me.  My question is in Mark 8: 22-25. This is the first and only time I’ve seen where it took Jesus twice to heal someone. The blind man in Bethsaida. Do you know of any other place something like this takes place? Is there anything special we can learn from this passage?

Application Of Genesis 4:25?

Q.  “And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew…” (Genesis 4:25) What is the application for today?  Is Abel’s death and replacement by Seth a foreshadow of the Gentile Church replacing Israel?

Ezekiel, History Or Prophecy?

Q. Thank you, as always, for your help. My question is about the book of Ezekiel. I’m well aware of the prophetic implications of chapters 38 and 39 as well as the Millennial Kingdom mentioned at the end of the book, but my question pertains to Ezekiel 12:27-28. I’m specifically wondering about the part of verse 28 that says, “None of My words will be delayed any longer. Whatever word I speak will be performed”. If the entire book of Ezekiel was meant to be fulfilled in the generation of Ezekiel himself, what fulfillment was there for 38-39, the temple and the kingdom? Was there a defined break in the book that I’m missing that showed that these prophecies are strictly for future times and not part of what God was mentioning in verse 28?

The Holy Spirit In The Great Tribulation

Q. At our church some people teach that after the rapture of the Church, the ‘grace’ or the ‘Holy Spirit’ will be taken away from the gentiles and given to the Jews. Now we believe that many Jews don’t believe in Jesus because it’s not their time of grace, but ours (the gentiles), and once the Church is gone then this time of ‘grace’ will be given to the Jews. Is this true according to the Bible? If it is, then is it fair to say that who ever remains on earth during the tribulation period, it will be very hard for them to give their lives to God as the Holy Spirit wont’ be there for them to convince them of their sin. Is this true? Thank you for your answer.

The Peace Of 1 Thes. 5:3

Q. In one of your articles you mentioned Psalm 83 and Isaiah 17. I was wondering in your opinion what do you think will happen first? I wanted to also know when will the peace that the Apostle Paul spoke of in I Thessalonians 5:3 come about? What event will bring this on?

Forever Or 1,000 Years?

Q.  Why do people insist Ezekiel 40-48 is the Millennium when in 43 Yahweh twice says exactly how long this condition will last? He never says a Thousand years, He says For Ever.
