Isaiah 66:8 “Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to give birth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once? For as soon as Zion was in labor, she gave birth to her children.
This prophecy is three thousand years old and it is remarkable. Everything about it is awe inspiring. The prophet spoke of the nation Israel in the latter days of human history. The Lord, through Isaiah, predicted a never before seen event that would take place before all the world. It was an event that would start Israel’s clock( stopped during the time Israel was not a nation) ticking again and would eventually usher in the return of Jesus Christ.
Isaiah prophesied that Israel would be born in one day and brought back in a day. This is exactly what happened on May 14, 1948 by a United Nations declaration. Israel reappeared on the map with the stroke of a pen. In one day. The world heard the announcement, “Israel is back home!” The world wept with astonishment and joy! God kept His promise.
The Jewish people, scattered across the world, made their way back–HOME.
