The original question was “Does the Bible give any guarantee of a peaceful settlement in Palestine between the Arabs and the Jews?” which we have considered in the previous six articles. We now consider the future blessings for Israel. Space only permits us to list a few.
- Israel will never be scattered again. Amos 9:15,
"And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land, which I have given them, saith the Lord thy God.”
- The land will be blessed for Israel. Isaiah 35:1,
“The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them (Israel); and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.”
Ezekiel 36:34,35 also describes this blessing,
“And the desolate land shall be tilled (34) ...And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities, are become fenced, and are inhabited (35).”
- Peace at last, not only for Israel, but for the whole world. Micah 4:3 tells us,
“And he (Christ) shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.”
- No more sickness or disease; therefore, no need for emergency wards, hospitals, doctors, etc. Isaiah 35:5,6,
“Then (i.e. during the millennial reign of Christ on this earth), the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped... (5) Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing (6).”
“Dumb” does not mean illiterate, only that one is unable to talk.
- During the 7 years of tribulation, just prior to the millennium, one-fourth of the population will die from the sword, hunger, wild beasts, etc. (Revelation 6:8). But, during the millennium, there will be no ferocious animals to attack mankind. Isaiah 11:6,7 tell us that,
“The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them... (6) and the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together (7).”
The past seven articles are only a skeleton outline of prophecy concerning the nation of Israel and future events as foretold in God’s word. There will be no world peace until Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace, returns; but, any person can experience peace with the Lord, knowing they will never perish but have everlasting life.
“He that believeth on the Son (Jesus Christ) hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.”
