The Time of The Signs: Israel, The Future.
Israel is our God’s Time Clock, this seems evident as we consider the Bible and all that it teaches concerning the future, especially in the light of Israel’s future. Watching Israel is watching the Bible being fulfilled in these last days.
But what is it concerning Israel that we need to watch out for with regard to the future? This message gives four key items for our consideration, three of which we may very well be here to witness. But regardless of whether or not we are here, we should still be able to see it all slowly coming to pass.
In the first study, when we looked at the Promised Kept to Israel, we had seen all things respecting prophecy fulfilment in the past, and we had seen how perfectly it had been kept, now we look to Israel’s future. I pray this study is a blessing to you as you consider Prophecy and its implications concerning Israel’s future.
THE COMING TEMPLE
15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) 16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: 17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: 18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. 19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! 20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: 21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
The Place For the man of sin, Antichrist. (Little horn, The Assyrian, The Beast)
“I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.” (Jn 5:43)
It is this man “Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God” (2 Thess 2:4)
Daniel wrote of it as;
- “the transgression of desolation” in Daniel 8:13
- “for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate” Dan 9:27
- and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate. Dan 11:31
- And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. Dan 12:11
It is all respecting the Time that the Daily Sacrifice shall be taken away and it is the time of the very end. The period of tribulation that will come upon the people of the Earth for 7 years. This is a focused part of Israel’s future.
It is the final, 70th week of Daniel 9
The 3rd Temple must therefore be standing for all this to happen.
But is there any indication that work is being prepared for the rebuilding of the Temple?

THE COMING HATRED OF THE WORLD
So much relating to Israel is found in the book of Zechariah, it is worth considering the survey undertaken to review both the nation and that which was and is to come.
2 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. 3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it. (Zec 12:2-3)
1 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. 2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. (Zec 14:1-2)
The League of Nations gave support to the establishment of the nation of Israel from before its Birth.
Now the United Nations condemns Israel at every turn.

THE COMING WARS AGAINST ISRAEL
Some of the most astounding prophecies concerning Israel are those relating to Israel’s future, specifically war. Though Israel is no stranger to war, the war coming has, as its purpose, Israels complete destruction. YET, Gods purpose is that he would be released both to Israel and to the world.
1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, 3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: 4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords: 5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet: 6 Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee. 7 Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them. 8 After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them. 9 Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.
10 Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought: 11 And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates, 12 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are nowinhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land. 13 Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?
1 Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: 2 And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel: 3 And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand. 4 Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people thatis with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured. 5 Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.
9 And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years:
(Close to the Beginning of the Tribulation period, probably just before)
Verse 12 says 12 And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land.
They will see and then mark the bodies to be professionally taken away (Verse 15)
15 And the passengers that pass through the land, when any seeth a man’s bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in the valley of Hamongog. 16 And also the name of the city shall be Hamonah. Thus shall they cleanse the land.
Why will all this happen?
And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD. 7 So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.
THE COMING CRY FOR THEIR TRUE MESSIAH
One of the most wonderful prophecies concerning Israel, a prophecy not yet fulfilled and is yet in Israel’s future, is that relating to the nations eyes being opened to recognise the messiah, the one they had rejected so long ago,
9 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. 10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn. 11 In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon.
34 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not! 35 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
