Okay, I can’t REALLY give you any condensed data about Israel, because A) I don’t know anything about it, and B) it is too big of a subject. Obviously. But I DID spend the day last Saturday at an IHOP conference called Israel and the Kingdom and I learned some crazy, awesome, mind-blowing, over-whelming stuff.
A couple of *freaky deaky examples:
Israel became a nation on May 14th, 1948. 1948 AD on the Gregorian calendar relates to the HEBREW year 5708 AM. The 5078th verse in Torah is Deuteronomy 30:5 –
The LORD your God will return you to the land that belonged to your ancestors, and you will possess that land again. Then he will make you even more prosperous and numerous than your ancestors!
That’s right. AND the nation was born in a day. “During a 24-hour span of time, foreign control of the land of Israel had fromally ceased and Israel declared its independence. Modern Israel was literally born in a single day.” Let’s read Isaiah 66:6-7 shall we?
6 Hear that uproar from the city, hear that noise from the temple! It is the sound of the LORD repaying his enemies all they deserve. 7 “Before she goes into labor, she gives birth; before the pains come upon her, she delivers a son. 8 Who has ever heard of such a thing? Who has ever seen such things? Can a country be born in a day or a nation be brought forth in a moment? Yet no sooner is Zion in labor than she gives birth to her children.

*By “freaky-deaky” I mean God is AWESOME.
