Israel in Prophecy
The eyes of the whole world seem to focus on a tiny sliver of land in the Middle East.
Israel has been in the center of prophecy for thousands of years. Today we witness and experience these prophecies as they are being fulfilled before our very eyes.

The Miraculous Restoration of Israel
THE MOST SIGNIFICANT PROPHETIC SIGN THAT CHRIST'S RETURN IS NEAR
Israel: The Last Rogue State, by Christopher J. Patton
Thus, I believe that the Bible predicts that Israel will be the last bastion of
individual liberty and national freedom in the world - even though a majority of her political leaders attempt accommodation with Antichrist and the
international community of nations. The tension between those Israelis possessing a more or less biblical vision and those who embrace and practice
a global realpolitic is easily observable in both the history of the State of Israel as well as in her present political environment.

Are Today's Jews Really Ancient Israel?, by Jack Kinsella
Many times have I heard people say something like-"The Jews today don't have a drop of Abrahamic blood."
Or that, "The Jews have no racial or historical connection to the Bible and Palestine." Some Christians explain who the Jews are, saying, "The Jews (or Israel) are people who
missed (or rejected) the coming of the Messiah and thus were cast aside by God, and so now God deals with the Gentiles."
Arab historian Jarid al-Kidwa told an Arab TV audience, "all the events surrounding Kings Saul, David
and Rehoboam occurred in Yemen, and no Hebrew remnants were found in Israel, for a very simple reason--because they were never here."
The Achilles Heel of Dominionism, by Hal Lindsey
Is Apocalypse Future or Past?
These are the words of a leading Dominionist Theologian, the late David Chilton, who died suddenly in his
early forties. The whole dominionist and/or preterist movement wreaks havoc with the Book of Revelation. In order to establish their view of prophecy, they must make virtually all
of the prophecies of the Book of Revelation apply to Israel's holocaust in AD 70. These are the ones who teach that Israel has no future as a distinct people and nation

The Role of Israel in God's Plan
Israel, Linchpin of Bible Prophecy, by Jack Kinsella
Events in Israel are of particular importance to Bible prophecy. As a consequence, the crisis in Israel
dominates our coverage of events relative to the unfolding of Bible prophecy in this generation.
Israel is the linchpin in studying Bible prophecy. Jesus' description of the signs of His Return
[Matt 24:3] are given from the perspective of someone standing on the Mount of Olives.
Without Israel, Bible prophecy doesn't make sense. That is one reason that Christians who believe
Israel was replaced by the Church have no use for prophecy.

Prince of Persia, by Jack Kinsella
The fact that Iran is the 'world's foremost state supporter of terrorism', the Russians are moving forward
with their Bushehr nuclear reactor project, and announced they just finished training some 700 engineers to run it. During talks in Moscow earlier last week, Iran and Russia
discussed the schedule for completing Bushehr. Russian officials expect Bushehr to begin operating in early 2005, according to a new production schedule drafted by Moscow
So far, Russia has finished between 80 and 85 percent of Bushehr. About 1,500 Russian personnel are in Iran
to build the reactor. The Israelis have threatened to destroy the reactor if it goes online, as it did to Saddam's nuclear reactor at Osirek in 1983.
Ezekiel tells of a coming war between an entity he calls 'Gog-Magog' and Israel. Siding with Gog-Magog is,
among others, Persia. Gog-Magog is modern Russia and Persia is modern Iran.
Promises of the Millennium, by Stu Johnson
All of this is based on the premillennial view of the end times. In contrast, amillennialists see the
church age-the time between Christ's resurrection and his second coming-as a symbolic form of the millennium. So, where does the idea of a literal millennium-the one
presented in Left Behind-come from?

What Is Preterism? Bible Prophecy? Or History Past?, by Jack Kinsella
Briefly speaking, Dominion theology is derived from Genesis 1:26 in which God gives man dominion over
all the earth. They argue that this verse commands Christians to bring all societies under the rule of the Word of God. Until this has been accomplished Jesus will not
The "Kingdom Now" teaching espouses a merging of Church and State, into a theocracy in which the Church
controls the government. Iran is an example of an Islamic theocracy.
Both views dismiss Bible prophecy as allegory or fulfilled history. They believe that the covenant between
God and Israel was abrogated and its provisions were transferred to the Church. They view the Book of the Revelation as either allegorical, or referring to the destruction
of the Temple in AD 70.

How The West Was Lost: The Christian's role in the declining superpower, by Jack Kinsella
Exactly where is America in the prophecies concerning the tribulation? The political spheres of influence are
clearly defined in the Book of Revelation, however, America is not mentioned. There are three schools of thought for those keeping an eye on world events and how they relate to
The first school of thought is that the United States in mentioned either directly or indirectly in the Book of Revelation.
It takes a little mental gymnastics or the following of the Jewish people throughout history to make this work. I will not go into every single theory, for there are too many, that tries to
prove that America can be found in end-times prophecy. People try in vain to find this country because it is difficult, nearly impossible, to explain how a major superpower can
simply not be mentioned.
The People of the Prince, by Jack Kinsella
Twenty-five centuries ago, the Hebrew prophet Daniel, living in exile in Babylon, had a vision for the last days.
The revealing angel told Daniel, "Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people in the latter days: for yet the vision is for many days."( Daniel 10:14)
The angel told Daniel of the final Gentile kingdom that would rule during the final hours before the return of
Christ. According to the angel, it would be partly strong and partly weak and would consist of ten 'kings'.
