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. The prophet spoke of the nation of Israel in the last days of human history. The Lord, through Isaiah, predicted a never before seen event that would start Israel’s prophetic time clock ticking again and would eventually usher in the return of Jesus Christ.
In Isaiah 66, Isaiah prophesied that the country, Israel, would be born in one day and that the nation Israel would be brought back in a moment’s time. This is exactly what happened in New York on the morning of May 14, 1948. By a United Nations’ declaration, Israel reappeared on the map with the stroke of a pen and in one day the world heard announced, “Israel is back home.”
God is able to do great and awesome things–against all odds.
