Parable Fulfilled?

When Israel has reappeared on the earth as a sovereign nation and begins to prosper, be aware, Jesus is about to return for the Body of Christ within the next eighty years or less. When all the End Times prophecies and visions begin to come to pass, the world should know and prepare for the Time of the Gentiles to come to an end. Before the span of one generation, when eighty years or less has elapsed, the world will drastically change leadership. Christ’s return will then be imminent.

Through the parable of the fig tree, Jesus is instructing the Body of Christ and the rest of the world to get ready for His return. No matter how many people die or how many calamities take place, God’s Word will be accomplished in accordance with His perfect will.

The primary message behind the parable of the fig tree is not that millions will die or the world will come to a catastrophic end. Rather, the parable of the fig tree is an invitation from God to every man, woman, and child on the planet. The invitation informs and confirms God’s timetable and purpose for the Great Consummation, the Rapture, the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, the Day of the Lord, and the end of the Time of the Gentiles.

God has invited each member of the world to the wedding feast where it matters not if they are a Jew or a Gentile. All who accept God’s invitation by receiving Jesus Christ as their personal Lord are welcomed. An important facet to the fulfillment of the parable of the fig tree is that it confirms every prophecy and vision pertaining to the Time of the Gentiles will be fulfilled by the end of the Latter Days. According to the parable, the date is set and Christ will soon return. At His return, Christ will gather His saints from every corner of the earth.

Israel’s Return

According to the parable of the fig tree, the end of the world as we know it will take place less than eighty years after Israel’s reemergence. By the end of this period, every End Times prophecy will have been fully accomplished. By virtue of this time limit, the parable of the fig tree is joined to the Seventy Weeks of Daniel prophecy. The last three and a half years of the Seventieth Week will take place at the end of the Time of the Gentiles.

The Latter Days began with the reemergence of Israel as a nation. It was a phenomenal fulfillment of prophecy when Israel returned from near extinction 1,800 years after being exiled from the Promised Land. Let’s look at several prophecies that validate Israel’s return from the four corners of the earth as an act of God.

One of the earliest prophecies predicting Israel’s miraculous reemergence is written in the book of Deuteronomy.

In approximately 1451 BC, God instructed Moses to write a prophecy that would inform the Israelites they would one day be returned to the Promised Land following many generations in exile. According to the prophecy, they would be returned to Israel after being scattered throughout the nations of the world (Deuteronomy 30:3).[1] The prophecy does not specify how many years Israel will be exiled or the exact countries from which Israel will reemerge. The verses do, however, confirm Israel will prosper and one day reestablish their commitment toward their God, causing the curse of the covenant previously visited on them to fall upon the enemies of God. This prophetic information is found in Deuteronomy chapters 30–31, where the prophecies declare these things will take place during the Latter Days after Israel has reemerged as a nation from an extended period of exile and desolation.

Another related prophecy found in Isaiah 11:8–16 relates its fulfillment partially during the time of Christ. Then, over the next 2,600 years, God causes this and other related prophecies to come to pass. Both Isaiah and Jeremiah were given prophecies relating to Israel’s restoration and its eventual return from the four corners of the earth during the period of the Latter Days. For Israel’s reemergence to be the legitimate fulfillment of these prophecies, a few conditions had to be met:

  • At the time of Israel’s return, the world must be full of the knowledge of the Lord.
  • The Messiah must have previously come, having established His rightful place as Savior of the gentiles through the implementation of a covenant.
  • Salvation must be available to both Jews and Gentiles.
  • The Israelites must be restored to the Promised Land and gathered from the four corners of the earth.
  • Israel’s restoration and return to the Promised Land must have taken place on at least one other occasion in history.

Each of the above conditions has been met.

Globally, today, it is common knowledge that Jesus, the Son of the Living God, died on the cross for the sin of the world. It may not be universally accepted, but it is globally acknowledged.

This selfless act by the Son of God had the effect of grafting believing Gentiles and Jews into the family of God. Isaiah 53 prophesied Christ’s ministry and crucifixion as the vehicles that would instigate salvation of the world, fulfilling the first half of the seventieth week.

The second half of the seventieth week is seen in Isaiah 13 where Isaiah prophesied the Wrath of God, which will come on an unrepentant remnant of humanity. These things are common knowledge today, but without divine insight, how would Isaiah, Jeremiah, or any other Bible prophet be capable of knowing of the coming events or results?

Currently, the gospel has been preached in every country throughout the world. The prophet Isaiah also prophesied about Israel’s restoration during the Latter Days. Only through divine revelation could a prophet accurately predict Israel’s need to be restored or actual restoration to the Promised Land. Additionally, the prophecy predicted Israel would be gathered from the four corners of the earth. These Latter Day events were accurately predicted and fulfilled in accordance with each prophecy.

If you don’t believe it read the book,

“This Side of the Whirlwind the Coming Apocalypse.”

Yet another prophecy in agreement with Moses’s and Isaiah’s predictions can be found in Jeremiah 16:14–21. In this passage, God informs Jeremiah of a day when Israel will no longer be known throughout the world as that nation that was bought out of the land of Egypt. Jeremiah prophesies Israel will instead be known as the nation and people who were brought out of the land of the north and from all the lands of the world where the Lord had driven them.

Today, Israel is known for having been gathered not only from the reprehensible Holocaust but from nearly every nation on earth. The text in Jeremiah 16:16 (KJV) declares,

Behold, I will send for many fishers, saith the LORD, and they shall fish them; and after will I send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain, and from every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks.”

Appropriately, Israel has actively searched out Jewish communities throughout the world, incorporating the diaspora[2] into the new Jewish state. Interestingly, scripture also indicates there will be an ingathering of gentile followers as well as Jewish during the last days.[3] Inexplicably, Christians have been gathering in Israel over the past decades and in large numbers joining Israel’s IDF. Men and women of faith, no matter the type, are answering God’s call for a new and God-centered Israeli homeland.

These amazing prophecies have been and are being fulfilled right under out watchful eyes.  Weekly I have written about many of these prophecies and the fulfillment of divine seals.  We are living in amazing Bible times whether we notice the prophecies or not.

[1] Deuteronomy 30:1–10.

[2] Diaspora is a term for the Jewish families who were exiled from approximately 6 BC until present.

[3] Jeremiah 16:19.

Well, I hope this was a blessing to you.  Whenever I think of all God is doing in our world to fulfill His Word I am amazed more people don’t shout it from the house tops.

Okay, God bless you all and have a wonderful End of Days! Ho!
