Blessing for the nations

Times of the Gentiles
We are on our way to a glorious moment. The ‘times of the Gentiles’ (Luke 21:24) are coming to an end. According to some, the times of the Gentiles have already ended. “Look,” they say, “at the re-establishment of the Jewish state in 1948.” In spite of all the problems, Israel was able to celebrate its 50th anniversary in 1998, the first year of Jubilee (Leviticus 25, 27) since the establishment of the State, even though the actual religious year of Jubilee was a few years later. “Surely,” they say, “the ‘times of the Gentiles’ ended in 1967, when the city of Jerusalem was re-united and became the undivided capital of the State of Israel.” [Photo top right: Jaffa Gate with City of David in the background |By Orientalist Wikimedia Commons].  (more…)
