Today marks the beginning of Israel’s 70th anniversary celebrations. On the Gregorian Calendar the end of Israel’s 70th year coincides with May 14th, but on the Hebrew Calendar the country’s 70th anniversary begins today and ends tomorrow. Israel will be holding official celebrations for 70 hours, running all the way through Friday.
The 70-hour long celebration of Israel’s 70th anniversary will include a beach party extending 70 kilometers along the Israeli coast. The celebrations will also feature the largest fireworks display in the nation’s entire history.
Yet the largest celebration in Israeli history is happening at the same time the war in Syria is reaching a crescendo and there is now, for the first time, a real threat of a direct assault by Iran. It’s also happening only months after the incredible Revelation 12 Sign and last week’s prophetic symbol on the Temple Mount.
The partying and revelry remind me of one of the most infamous prophecies of all—that of 1 Thessalonians 5:3:
While people are saying, ‘Peace and safety,’ destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.
As we’ve learned so clearly from Revelation 12 and other prophetic scriptures, Israel is that pregnant woman. Israel must enter into a period of hard labor in order for the country to finally recognize that Yeshua is the long-awaited Messiah. Yet while the “they” of 1 Thessalonians 5:3 will not escape (namely Israel and the world’s unbelievers), the male child—the Body of Christ, the Church—most certainly will.
Remember the Trump-Cyrus coin that Israel’s Sanhedrin minted in preparation for the Third Temple? Now they are minting a second coin with Trump’s image emblazoned on the front—this time in commemoration of Israel’s 70th anniversary: (Click to Source)
