2 TOPIC: Do You See What I See? [page 2] (Birth of a Nation)

Home Page: Quantum Study Bible

In the “Re-Beginning”

Some people believe there are no viable Jews today, some believe the church has replaced the Jews, and some, such as myself believe that when Israel once again became a nation, that prophecy popped right off the page onto reality disproving the belief that God is finished with the Jews. Since then, prophecy has become like popcorn in a microwave; it starts slow with a pop here and a pop there, and then it becomes faster and faster until finally, it is finished.

Scripturally, the Fig Tree is symbolic for the nation Israel.

    • Isaiah 66:8 Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to give birth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once? For as soon as Zion was in labor, She gave birth to her children.

  2. The birth of Israel is the culmination of many prophecies;
    • See Topic: The Regathering, See Topic: Jews in the Diaspora and the regathering for historical events and photos.
    • Mark 11:21 And Peter, remembering, said to Him, “Rabbi, look! The fig tree which You cursed has withered away.”

      (Prophetically: The nation Israel will cease to exist after they reject Jesus as their Messiah. They will be dispersed across the globe, persecuted, and rejected until on May 15, 1948 a new generation begins)

  • The Fig Tree throughout scripture is symbolic of the nation Israel. Figs represent Jewish people. The tender leaves on the fig tree are the regathering of the Jewish people, newly budding in the promised land.
    • Matthew 24:32-34 “Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. So you also, when you see all these things, know that it (or He) is near—at the doors! Assuredly, I say to you, this generation (the generation that sees the restoration of Israel) will by no means pass away till all these things take place (The return of Jesus to set up His kingdom on earth.)”
    • See Pop-Up: Definition of a Generation
  • The disciple Peter declared that the fig tree is the “whole house of Israel” in the Ethiopian edition of the gospel of Peter. It documents the understanding of the early post-apostolic Church that the fig tree was understood by the Jewish Christians to be a clear prophecy of the rebirth of the nation Israel in the last days prior to Christ’s return.
    In this edition, Peter is being quoted “Hast thou not grasped that the fig-tree is the house of Israel?”
  • The symbolism of the fig tree being the “whole house of Israel” in the non-canonical Apocalypse of Peter, (Ethiopic Edition) ~100 AD states “Hast thou not grasped that the fig tree is the house of Israel”.

  • Another culmination of this prophecy is the Valley of Dry Bones wherein the nation Israel is prophesied to come back to life.
    • Ezekiel 37:4 “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! Thus says the Lord God to these bones: “Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live. I will put sinews on you and bring flesh upon you, cover you with skin and put breath in you; and you shall live. Then you shall know that I am the Lord.” ’ ”
      (The Valley of Dry Bones is coming back to life. Not until the end of the tribulation era of seven years will she receive her “breath” ie: Holy Spirit).

The concept of the nonexistence of “true Jews” just doesn’t make biblical sense to me on several levels. First of all DNA tests prove otherwise; and secondly God promised they would never cease to exist, that there will always be a remnant.

My source will always be the Word of God. God is not a liar and cannot lie. I cannot put my faith in churches or pastors which ignores God’s promises to the Jews.

  • God’s promise:
    Jeremiah 31:36 “(Only) If those ordinances (laws of the universe) depart From before Me, says the Lord, Then the seed of Israel shall also cease From being a nation before Me forever.” (In other words, its never going to happen.)

No one believed such a thing could happen, not even the organized church through the ages. The nation had been “dead” for approx. 2,000 years, being nothing but “dry bones”.

Isaac Newton disagreed with the concept of the church replacing the Jews; he insisted scripture indicated there would be a new Jewish nation literally. He spent the second half of his life scrutinizing prophecy.

The nation and the language was resurrected from the dead, just as Ezekiel prophesied in Ezekiel 37 and 38 when the valley of dry bones stood up and became an nation. Not only was the nation resurrected but the Hebrew language was resurrected, the first “dead” language to do so. Even an extinct Palm Tree was discovered.
