JPost: Some 36% of secular Israeli Jews would move abroad given the opportunity, according to a poll released by Masa Israeli – Israeli Roots Odyssey, ahead of its fourth conference held at the Knesset on Monday.
The poll was conducted by Midgam Consulting and Research, among 509 Israeli Jews. The margin of error is 4.5%+-. more …
Opinion: Actually, this is not surprising. Our post from March 11 (here) explains that 35% of Jews are Reform, or secular.
If we are where I think we are on the Bible’s timeline, the fulfillment of a prophecy in Ezekiel 38-39 concerning an Israeli victory over incalculable odds will bring them back.
“When I have brought them back from the peoples and gathered them out of their enemies’ lands, and I am hallowed in them in the sight of many nations, then they shall know that I am the Lord their God, who sent them into captivity among the nations, but also brought them back to their land, and left none of them captive any longer.” Ezekiel 39:27-28
I’m guessing that there is a rapture comparison here. Stay with me:
1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 records that Jesus Christ will come for His Church before the tribulation begins as Paul taught in 1 Thess. 1:10, 5:9, Rom. 5:9 and John recorded in Rev. 3:10. A definition of the Church is those Christians who believe that the blood of Jesus has provided atonement for all sin – past, present, and future. Nowhere does it say that Christians must believe in the rapture or believe that it precedes the tribulation.
In the same way then, Ezekiel’s prophecy to bring all God’s children back to the land after the war of Gog and Magog could apply.
Those secular Jews leaving the promised land better buy return trip tickets.
