The Apocalypse of Palms

The Apocalypse of Palms…

Did you know, asked Grandfather, it took centuries for the land of Israel to be given back to the Jewish people? As the story goes, he continued, the land of Israel had been under the rule of the Islamic Ottoman Empire for four centuries. But being Muslim, the empire was hardly sympathetic with the idea of the Jewish people returning to the land of Israel. And yet the Bible said it would happen.

So what happened? The First World War happened. And because of a series of geopolitical factors, the Ottoman Turkish Empire became involved in the conflict and sided with Germany against the British Empire. And because of that war, the great and many-centuries old Ottoman Empire suddenly collapsed. The British entered Jerusalem and granted the Jewish people the right to return to their homeland.

The words of the ancient Hebrew prophecies were fulfilled. Think about that. God allowed the whirlwind of history to cause the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, in order to be faithful to His people and to fulfill His promise.

That same God will work all things together, even the entire world, and every event of human history, for your good and to fulfill the promise of your life.

I will make the lame my remnant, those driven away a strong nation. The Lord will rule over them in Mount Zion from that day and forever. Micah 4:7

Take time to look back at your life to see all the things God did and worked together so that you could be where you are today. Take time to thank Him for it.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
