Israel’s False Peace And Destruction.
Israel will not remain in the land, even after being declared a sovereign nation in 1948. They will be driven out of the land once again and persecuted by the one-world ruler, the Antichrist. Israel in the land today is not the complete fulfillment of any of the Old Testament prophecies concerning Israel.
The complete fulfillment of all the hundreds of promises made to Israel will not be accomplished until the Prince of Peace, the Lord Jesus Christ, returns to the Earth and establishes His Kingdom for a thousand years. Then—and only then— will Israel inherit all the land God had promised to them, some 255,000 square miles of real estate. Only then will there be perfect peace throughout the world.
To understand what is prophesied concerning Israel’s future, it is important to know the next prophetic even which will shock the entire world. That event is described as the Rapture, when Jesus Christ comes in the clouds and every Christian is gone from the Earth, “in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye.” (1 Corinthians 15:50-52).
1 Thessalonians 4:16,17 describes the event,
“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the Trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: (16) Then we which are ALIVE and remain shall be caught up together with them in the CLOUDS to meet the Lord IN THE AIR: and so shall we ever be with the Lord (17).”
At this point, the world will be in a condition of mass chaos. This event opens the door for a one-world leader (the Antichrist) and the one-world church which God calls,
"Babylon the Great, mother of Harlots and abominations of the earth.” - Revelation 17:5
The Antichrist makes a covenant with Israel; but, after three and a half years breaks the covenant (Daniel 9:27); and then seeks to exterminate every Jew. Hitler will seem like a “Sunday school teacher”; although he slaughtered six million Jews, as compared to the Antichrist.
Matthew, Chapter 24, describes this same period of time, known as The 7-Year Tribulation Period. There has never been anything happen on this Earth like what is yet to come. Christ, Himself, states in Verse 21,22,
“For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.(21) ...And except those days should be shortened, there shall no flesh be saved: but for the elects sake (i.e., the Jews that have received Christ as their Messiah during that time.), those days shall be shortened (22).”
In Palestine, alone, only one-third of the Jewish people will survive. (Zechariah 13:8,9).
"And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. (8) And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God." - Zechariah 13:8-9
