The Declaration of Israel – May 14th 1948
As I was reading the Declaration of the Establishment of the State of Israel on the internet a few weeks ago, I was fascinated, with some of the things I read. I want to share a few parts of this declaration that caught my eye.
According to the official document for the Declaration of the Establishment of the State of Israel
It says: Placing our trust in the “Rock of Israel” we affix our signatures to this proclamation (etc etc) …………
Another part of the declaration says: The State of Israel will be open for Jewish immigration and for the ingathering of the exiles; it will foster the development of the country for the benefit of all its inhabitants; it will be based on freedom, justice and peace as envisaged by the prophets of Israel
And one another part that was a blessing to read said : We appeal to the Jewish people throughout the Diaspora to rally round the Jews of Eretz-Israel in the tasks of immigration and upbuilding and to stand by them in the great struggle for the realization of the age-old dream – the redemption of Israel.
These words were spoken and written by men who did not have the Holy Spirit, and probably did not know of all the promises made by the God of Israel as written in the Teanch. But one thing they did know, is the centuries old dream for the Jewish people to have their own land and to be able to live in it. They probably also did not know their God in a personal way, and yet look at the words that were written in the Declaration.
These words were proclaimed to the world by the first prime minister, David Ben Gurion , and were officially written and approved and stamped. That is powerful, but what is more powerful, and probably unknown to thousands of Jewish people, then and now, is that it is the fulfilment of the words of the God of Israel that He spoke Himself through the prophets of old…..
This nation of Israel is founded on The “ROCK” – therefore Israel will never be removed . It cannot. Rock in the natural is an extremely hard substance and usually takes bulldozers to break it up and remove it – If we as a people and nation are founded on The Rock, The God of Israel – we will only be removed if He allows it. If He is for us, then who (or what) can be against us . (see also Psalm 46:6)
The nation of Israel today is a nation because it was in the heart of God from the beginning of time. It has been birthed and established, and is getting prepared and ready for the return of her King, Messiah Yeshua. In the meantime it is preparing the Jewish people in readiness for their redemption and salvation, and for His rule and reign. If the Jewish people were to be brought home, then they needed a homeland to come home to, and if the King is coming to rule in a kingdom, then He needs a kingdom to rule and return to. Israel is that Kingdom and Israel is the homeland for the Jewish people
The time is now for the Jewish people to return, and returning they are, to know their Redeemer and be here in the land to welcome Him back. Millions have returned over the last 62 years, and continue to come at around 1,000 every week, in readiness for this monumental event to take place. .
For those of you that have not been to Israel , then I encourage you to come and see for yourself, the fulfilment of the prophetic word, as written in the Holy Scriptures. Come and see the land, that is a modern built up state , established, settled, flourishing, producing and supplying the world with her miracle foods and brilliant technological inventions. Come and see the place where our Messiah is returning to.
Am Israel Chai ! – (the people of Israel live )
