3) How Gallipoli Fits God's plan
Australia and New Zealand have made much of Gallipoli, and in doing so, remind the world of plan of God (Yahweh) for the Middle East revealed in prophecy.
The establishment of the State of Israel fits much Bible prophecy. The latest this Bible prophecy could have been written was before the beginning of the common era, yet it speaks of modern events in detail. Moses, the leader of the exodus from Egypt (1490BCE), said plainly, before they were even a nation, that Israel would be scattered and gathered again. Specifically he said that they would be persecuted, in need of compassion, and they would be gathered from many nations, and even from 'heaven' or from 'leadership' positions.
That then Yahweh your God will turn your captivity, and have compassion upon you, and will return and gather you from all the nations, where Yahweh your God has scattered you. If any of thine be driven out unto the outmost parts of heaven, from there will Yahweh your God gather you, and from there will he fetch you: (Deuteronomy 30:3-4)
Jeremiah said it would become a saying that 'God lives who brought the people of Israel from diaspora'.
"The days come", saith Yahweh, "that they shall no more say, Yahweh lives, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; But, 'Yahweh lives, which brought up and which led the descendants of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries where I had driven them'; and they shall dwell in their own land". (Jeremiah 23:7-8)
The Jews were offered a place in Africa as a homeland, but this was not pursued instead they began to return to Palestine from many countries. The first settlers came from Russia the "north country" and also it was from Russia that nearly a million Jews fought to leave from the late 1940's until the 1990's. Micah says Israel's 'remnant' would be gathered, indicating a time of great population loss. After WW2 in Europe, of a whole family, sometimes only one was left alive to go to Israel.
I will surely assemble, O Jacob, all of you; I will surely gather the remnant of Israel; I will put them together.., as the flock in the midst of their fold: they shall make great noise by reason of the multitude of men. (Micah 2:12)
Amos plainly said that there would be a nation of Israel again, and they would be known for building cities and for wine and fruit.
And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them. (Amos 9:14 KJV)
Remarkably Israel, without many natural resources and desert landscape, is famous for three things: building cities (often in controversial places), red wine & oranges exported to the world. The prophet Ezekiel speaks of a time of regathering.
And say unto them, "This says the Lord Yahweh; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the nations, where they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land: And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all": (Ezekiel 37:21-22 KJV)
Despite having the greatest number of countries of origin, languages and ethnic backgrounds of any nation, Israel is "one nation". Hosea indicates Israel would exist without a king and without a prince. And then they would return and seek their God.
For the children of Israel shall abide many days without a king, and without a prince, and without a sacrifice, and without an image, and without an ephod, and without teraphim: Afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek the LORD their God, and David their king; and shall fear the LORD and his goodness in the latter days. (Hosea 3:4-5)
The prophet Joel said at a specific time there would be a nation called 'Israel' again and other nations would be concerned with its fate and Deity would become openly involved.
For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land. (Joel 3:1-2)(For more see Valley of Jehoshaphat)
There are many more references to this plan. If the failure at Gallipoli was indeed significant in the establishment of the state of Israel, it is significant indeed.
Cyrus the Great encouraged the Jews to rebuild their Temple and return to their homeland.
What the world leaders intend and what God directs may be different things. In this case of the US Administration's action in the UN Security Council the Bible, with an amazing track record, both predicted the situation and indicates the future, which won't be as they hoped. They are on the wrong side of the Maker of history.
Shimon Peres has been a man of sign in his life and now in his death and burial.
Whoa! Has the Creator made a comment?
The king of Babylon was made as a beast for 7 years (times), and was a witness to all generations, that the living may know that the Most High rules in the nations.
