Did you know there were 16 specific prophecies about Israel in scripture? Even more impressive is the fact that 13 of those 16 prophecies have already been fulfilled in history. There is no other nation mentioned in the bible as frequently as Israel. Whether or not anyone likes it, Israel is a special nation to God and we will do ourselves some justice to watch that nation more closely.
God has special plans for Israel and Paul taught us in his epistles that He is by no means finished with them. The teaching that born-again Christians have replaced Israel as God’s special race is a flawed one when scripture is clearly examined. Derek Prince does a great exposition of the scriptures with respect to God’s heart for Israel. I hope this sermon blesses you as you learn more about this special nation called Israel.
