On July 17th last year, the first open Jewish prayers in 50 years were offered on the Temple Mount as the holy site temporarily fell under the control of the Israeli police. Now, just over one month away from Israel’s 70th anniversary, the Israeli flag has flown over the Temple Mount—also for the first time in 50 years.

Not only does this testify that the fig tree has put forth its leaves and is ready for inspection by the LORD, but it also demonstrates that the gospel has now gone full circle, largely moving westward from Jerusalem and completely encircling the globe over a 2,000 year period of time. It has now reached every nation on earth and is back where it began. This is profound and monumental evidence that Jesus’ appearing is absolutely imminent.
And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
The whole assembly became silent as they listened to Barnabas and Paul telling about the signs and wonders God had done among the Gentiles through them. When they finished, James spoke up. ‘Brothers,’ he said, ‘listen to me. Simon has described to us how God first intervened to choose a people for his name from the Gentiles. The words of the prophets are in agreement with this, as it is written:
‘After this I will return
and rebuild David’s fallen tent.
Its ruins I will rebuild,
and I will restore it,
that the rest of mankind may seek the Lord,
even all the Gentiles who bear my name,
says the Lord, who does these things—
things known from long ago.’ (Click to Source)
