I read once that biblical prophecy is really just “Future History,” i.e. it’s a written and published fully-accurate history of things yet to occur. What I’m hoping to do in this blog is connect the dots of what the Bible says about the past and the future from the perspective of one who lives in Israel, experiences the craziness that happens in this Land on a daily basis, and to give you a front row seat of the things that we are seeing, but aren’t necessarily being reported.
A person recently said—quite accurately I think, that “The temple mount is the focus of Jerusalem, Jerusalem is the focus of Israel, Israel is the focus of the Middle East, and the Middle East is the focus of the world.” If you work this quote backwards to its logical origin, you can easily see where the world’s future is heading. As Ezekiel wrote, “Thus says the Lord GOD, ‘This is Jerusalem. I have set her in the center of the nations…,'” “…who dwell at the center of the earth.” Another Bible author quotes the LORD saying, “I have chosen Jerusalem, that my name might be there.”
It’s going to be an interesting ride, and we’ve been given front row seats.
“Then the nations will know that I am the LORD who sanctifies Israel, when my sanctuary is in their midst forevermore.” — Ezekiel 37:28
