Proof that God is Real: Israel

My friend, Joseph Farah, publisher of WND Books, wrote an excellent commentary on how the nation of Israel proves God is real.  Here are some key portions from his wonderful piece:

JERUSALEM – I believe one of the best evidences that God is real – and who He says He is in the Bible – is the mere existence of the modern state of Israel.

As the Bible says, we can look at Creation itself for proof: “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse, (Romans 1:20).

But, it seems to me, the very best intellectual and tangible proof of the existence and sovereignty and almighty power of Yehovah, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, is the reality of the rebirth of Israel just as it was predicted millennia ago – and facing the exact “controversies” and adversities that were foretold.

It’s undeniable – except for those who choose to deny it or refuse to examine the overwhelming evidence.

It was predicted, too, by Isaiah the prophet (Isaiah 11:11-12): “And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.”

However, this was nothing compared to what God Himself suggested, through the prophet Jeremiah, was coming in the future:

“Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that it shall no more be said, The Lord liveth, that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; But, The Lord liveth, that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north, and from all the lands whither he had driven them: and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers,” (Jeremiah 16:14-15).

In other words, the miracle we are still witnessing today, as Jews from all over the world flock to their reborn homeland more than 1,800 years after its destruction, is a bigger miracle than the one seen by the children of Israel who saw the Red Sea parted – allowing them to cross over while destroying the Egyptian army pursuing them.

And, most remarkable of all, perhaps, is Isaiah’s prophecy that this nation would be reborn in one day, (Isaiah 66:8).

All coincidence?
