When President Donald Trump moved the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem many people of faith quickly recognized the biblical significance of such a move. Trump, like King Cyrus before him, fulfilled biblical prophecy, by recognizing that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish state and that the Jewish people deserve a righteous, free and sovereign Israel.
However, this was not the first time in the modern State of Israel's short 70 years that it has played a role in the fulfillment of biblical prophecy. Many of the miracles we are witnessing in Israel today were promised in the Bible long ago.
The Ingathering of the Jewish Exiles From the 4 Corners of the World
It says in Ezekiel 34:13a, "And I will bring them out from the peoples and gather them."
This month, for the first time, Israel has overtaken America to become the world's largest Jewish population center. The surge in the Jewish community is thought to have been fueled by returning members of the diaspora.
In addition, the total Jewish population has reached 6 million, which carries added significance as this was the number of Jews killed in the Holocaust.
Spiritual Partnership Between Jews and Christians
The State of Israel, however, was not born through Jewish toil alone. Rather, as prophesied in Ezra 6:14: "And they built, and finished it, according to the decree of the God of Israel and according to the decrees of Cyrus, Darius, and Artaxerxes king of Persia." The state of Israel was birthed out of a spiritual partnership between Jews and non-Jews.
In biblical times, it was Cyrus' edict that allowed the people of Israel to return to the land of Israel and rebuild the Temple. In 1917, it was the British government's Balfour Declaration that turned the tide for the Jews in exile. Similarly, in 1948, when U.S. President Harry Truman recognized the state of Israel, he said, "I am Cyrus." In the cases of Cyrus, Balfour, Truman and now Trump, it was non-Jews serving as God's agents who facilitated the return of the Jewish people to their land.
