Presentation on theme: "Can a nation be born in a day?"— Presentation transcript:
1Can a nation be born in a day? Isaiah 66:8 Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.
2The Valley of Dry BonesEzekiel 37:1 The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones,*The Dry Bones symbolize decay, & death, & “hopelessness”
3In The Midst of the Valley of Despair Psalms 6:1-4O LORD, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure. Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak: O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed.My soul is also sore vexed: but thou, O LORD, how long? Return, O LORD, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies' sake.Psalms 22:14-15I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels. My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.
4Can These Bones Live?Ezekiel 37:2-3 And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry. And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest.
5The Bones in ProphecyEzekiel 37:4 Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.“Prophesy upon” (naba) means to inspire with a prediction that embodies a Divine promise.
6God’s Physical and Spiritual Promise to Restore Israel Ezekiel 37:4-6 Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord. Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath (ruwach-spiritual) to enter into you, and ye shall live: And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, (physical) and put breath in you, (Neshamah-Gen 2:7)) and ye shall live; (rebirth) and ye shall know that I am the Lord.
7Satan Tries Again to Annihilate the Jewish Remnant The Holocaust (WWII)Perhaps Nothing in the history of the Jewish people symbolizes the “Valley of Dry Bones” more vividly than the pictures of The HolocaustPhotos from WW II archives showing massive graves of bones and skeletons of thousands of Jewish corpses. Surely no people dared hope to emerge as a nation from these pits.Satan Tries Again to Annihilate the Jewish Remnant
8The “Jewish Problem” & The Final Solution Conspiracy The target: European countries and their Jewish populations, a page from the protocol of the Wannsee Conference held in January The meeting took place in a Berlin suburb to coordinate the "Final Solution," the killing of all Jews in Europe - between the SS and all German ministries involved. (Total 8,000,000)The Solution later called for Jewish extermination in the Arab Middle East……………….(Haj Al amin Husseini)
9One-Third via A Fiery Trial Zechariah 13:9 And I (God) will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.One third of Jews survived the Final Solution and formed the Zionist State of Israel.But, Israel has not yet learned to cry, “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.” (Matthew 33:39) Jesus will rescue Israel, when Israel finally turns to him.

14The Furnace of Worldly Affliction Ezekiel 22: Son of man, the house of Israel is to me become dross: all they are brass, and tin, and iron, and lead, in the midst of the furnace; they are even the dross of silver. Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye are all become dross, behold, therefore I will gather you into the midst of Jerusalem. As they gather silver, and brass, and iron, and lead, and tin, into the midst of the furnace, to blow the fire upon it, to melt it; so will I gather you in mine anger and in my fury, and I will leave you there, and melt you. Yea, I will gather you, and blow upon you in the fire of my wrath, and ye shall be melted in the midst thereof. As silver is melted in the midst of the furnace, so shall ye be melted in the midst thereof; and ye shall know that I the LORD have poured out my fury upon you.
15Alive Again, and Standing Strong Ezekiel 37:10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.Zechariah 12:6 In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem.
16God Will Remember The Abrahamic Covenant Ezekiel 16:59-60 For thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even deal with thee as thou hast done, which hast despised the oath in breaking the covenant. Nevertheless I will remember my covenant with thee in the days of thy youth, and I will establish unto thee an everlasting covenant.
17Whom do the Dry Bones Symbolize? Ezekiel 37:11 Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.
18God Promised to Bring Israel Back to the Land Ezekiel 37:12-13 Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel. And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,
19Israel and The Fig TreeRevelation 6:13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.Mark 11:20-22 And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots. And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away. And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
20The Fig Tree AnalogyEzekiel 37:14 And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it, saith the LORD. (The Lord is presently “performing” the miracle of the Fig Tree before the nations.)Matthew 24:32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: (the kingdom of Heaven is near)
21An Everlasting Covenant Psalms 105:7-11 He is the LORD our God: his judgments are in all the earth. He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations. Which covenant he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac; And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant: Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance:
22A Remant is Re-gathered For A Heavenly Purpose Jeremiah 31:33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.Luke 1:72-73 To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant; The oath which he sware to our father Abraham, (Acts 3:25; Hebrews 8-10)
23A New Covenant With a Reborn Israel Hebrews 8:10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:Hebrews 10:16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;
24God is the Architect of Birth Isaiah 66:9-10 Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? saith the LORD: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut the womb? saith thy God. Rejoice ye with Jerusalem, and be glad with her, all ye that love her: rejoice for joy with her, all ye that mourn for her:Isaiah 66:14 And when ye see this, your heart shall rejoice, and your bones shall flourish like an herb: and the hand of the LORD shall be known toward his servants, and his indignation toward his enemies.
25May 14, 1948 Israel is reborn, Physically On May 14, 1948, at 4:00 p.m., an historic event was about to occur. The leaders of the Jewish community in what was then called Palestine gathered in the Tel Aviv Museum on Rothschild Blvd., Tel Aviv, to declare the establishment of an old/new country - the STATE OF ISRAEL.Israel reborn, but only Physically
26It was Big News in 1948It was a miracle of Biblical proportionNever before in the history of human civilization had a nation been absent from the world stage and resurfaced again 2000 years later.Imagine the Headlines When Israel is Reborn, Spiritually. It will mean peace for the whole world!
27US President Truman “Recognized” Israel’s Birth America, a Judeo-Christian nation, was at the zenith of its world power when God moved to restore Israel into the Promised Land. God blessed the USA in order to bless Israel, and the same curse or blessing remains fundamental in God’s plans.Six Arab nations launched a war of extermination on the new State of Israel…they failed, and the Israeli-Arab Conflict has ever since consumed the world. Eventually it will bring all nations together against God’s chosen people, and her true King.
28Judgment is Coming on the Persecutors of Zion Ezekiel 28: Thus saith the Lord GOD; When I shall have gathered the house of Israel from the people among whom they are scattered, and shall be sanctified in them in the sight of the heathen, then shall they dwell in their land that I have given to my servant Jacob. And they shall dwell safely therein, and shall build houses, and plant vineyards; yea, they shall dwell with confidence, when I have executed judgments upon all those that despise them round about them; and they shall know that I am the LORD their God.
29Israel Will Be Spiritually Born in a Day (Day of the Lord) Romans 11:25-27 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.
30God Shall Bless all Nations ( Israel Becomes Head of Nations ) Psalms 110:1-3 The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool. The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies. Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth. (Israel…the head, not the tail of nations-Deuteronomy 28:13)Genesis 22:17-18 That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.
31Can These Bones Live?God’s Prophetic Word Says They Can
32Can a nation be born in a day? Can an evil infested world be saved? God will very soon act to rescue a nation that has walked in the midst of a beastly fire, and lo, the form of the other man walking in the fire, is like unto the Son of GodPsalms 23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
