The Fall Of The Ottoman Empire

The Fall Of The Ottoman Empire…

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.

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.

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 a 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.

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28

Take account of the things in your life which didn’t seem good at the time – but from which God brought good – Take time to thank Him.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
