Biblical history is the history of
Once again the focus of history is back on
Nearly a hundred years have passed since the Balfour Declaration was announced by the British Government in 1917, and its significance is fading into dim history. However, it was a turning point in the development of
Cyrus… “Now in the first year of Cyrus, king of Persia, so that the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus, king of Persia, that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and put it also in writing, saying; Thus said Cyrus, king of Persia: The Lord God of heaven hath given me all the kingdoms of the earth; and he hath charged me to build him an house at Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Who is there among you of all his people? His God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem, which is in Judah, and build the house of the Lord God of Israel (he is the God), which is in Jerusalem. And whoever remains in any place where he sojourns, let the men of his place help him with silver, and with gold, and with goods, and with beasts, beside the freewill offering for the house of God that is in Jerusalem (Ezra 1:1 - 4)
Balfour… His Majesty’s Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the right and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.
In both cases, the governments involved held political control over
In Cyrus’ time, the opposition was led by the Samaritans; in our time the opposition is being led by the Arab Palestinians.
While we are comparing Balfour to King Cyrus, we might also compare Jewish chemist, Chaim Weizmann to the prophet Daniel… It is clear from Scripture that Daniel prophesied the sudden capture of
Furthermore, Jewish history informs us that the Jewish leaders in Babylon approached King Cyrus after his victory and showed him the scroll of the prophet Isaiah, which mentioned Cyrus by name (Isaiah 44:28 – 45 -1). Isaiah had written the prophecy over 150 years before, so the Jewish leaders and King Cyrus were amazed that the venerable prophecy had been fulfilled so literally. All of this would explain why King Cyrus was so willing, indeed eager, to issue the proclamation urging the restoration of
Prior to WW I,
A very serious problem, however, was that not only was there a pro-Jewish faction in England led by Foreign Minister Balfour, there was also a pro-Arab faction heavily influenced by “Lawrence of Arabia,” which was making contrary covert promises to the Arabs.
This double-standard in the British government led to much confusion and ultimately bloodshed in later years… Nevertheless, the impact of the Balfour Declaration on the restoration of the Jewish people to the Land cannot be overestimated. It was brought about, in no small measure, by the convergence of Jewish Zionism and British Christian in the persons of Chaim Weizmann and Balfour.
The Balfour Declaration was not just drafted in one day by the Foreign Minister. It was carefully crafted with many revisions over a period of several weeks. It went back and forth between the British Cabinet and various Jewish groups. Some Jewish leaders were concerned that British recognition of a Jewish homeland in
In ancient times God used political events in the transition of power from
At any rate, the Balfour Declaration set in motion an exploding increase from a small trickle to a strong stream as Jewish people began their serious return to the Promised Land. And, many Christians believed that this was the beginning… of the fulfilment of biblical prophecies, and this meant that the time for the judgment of Satan and the establishment of Christ’s kingdom on earth was coming ever closer. It soon became clear that Satan and his willing accomplices were not going to stand by and watch the restoration of
God’s Hand of restoration begins…the Lord began the long process of fulfilling Ezekiel 37 prophecy of the Dry Bones in the 19th century.
By the end of WW I,
The Holocaust in many ways defies explanation…. There have been many cruel purges and persecutions among human beings throughout the violent history of our planet. Nevertheless, how do you account for the diabolical and intensely systematic murder of almost three generations of Jews in Nazi Germany? Hitler determined to destroy as many Jews as possible, even when the Allied army had crushed the Nazi war machine. To the very end Hitler ordered the death camp personnel to keep on exterminating and cremating Jews. Such fanaticism is irrational and un-imaginable from the purely human perspective!
When you realize, though, that Satan was terrified by the realities of the early stages of a restored

The first Arabian use of the word ‘Arab’ occurs in the ancient southern Arabian writings… dating from the late pre-Christian and early Christian centuries. In these, ‘Arab’ means ‘Bedouin’ often ‘Raider’ so Muhammad and his contemporaries, the Arabs, were the ‘Bedouins of the desert’ and in their Koran the term is used exclusively in this sense and never of the people living in

The Reverend Dr. James Parkes said; that the theme that “gives the Jewish history characteristics which begin by being unusual and end by being unique” is that “the religion that was developing into a universal one- God religion (monotheism) never lost its root in the Land… The Jewry has nowhere established another independent national centre; and, as in natural, the

All of those who left fully anticipated being able to return to their homes after an early Arab victory, as Palestinian nationalist Aref el-Aref explained in his history of the 1948 war: The Arabs thought they would win “in less than the twinkling of an eye” and that it would take “no more than a day or two” from the time the Arab armies crossed the border until all the colonies were conquered and the enemy would throw down his arms and cast himself on their mercy.
By the end of January1948, the exodus was so alarming that the Palestine Arab Higher Committee asked that the neighbouring Arab countries refuse visas to these refugees and to seal the borders against them. Meanwhile, Jewish leaders urged the Arabs to remain in

Although much is heard about the plight of the Palestinian refugees, little is said about the Jews who had to flee from Arab states… During the 1947 UN debates, Arab leaders threatened them. For example,

Prior to Israel’s War of Independence in 1948, the Jews urged local Arabs to remain in the area, but despite these pleas the majority fled, many heading their own leader' promises that they would return after the Jews were driven into the sea.
The church is meant to be a blessing to
We shall reign with Yeshua (Jesus) when He rules the earth (Daniel , 27). The angels themselves will study us (1 Peter – 12; 1 Cor. 4:9) forever as the greatest exhibit of God’s grace, and we will actually judge angels (1 Corinthians 6:3). This is our destiny and we, for one, would not trade our position in the Body of Christ! Why, then, should Christians be troubled over what God has promised the Jewish people? Why be jealous over the future destiny of
