VI Israel: God's Timeline


Published on

This, the sixth presentation in the series, briefly and in overview, describes the prophetic timeline of God's plan of redemption. Turns out that God bases this timeline on Jewish history. The fact that Israel emerges as a nation after 2000 years of diaspora among the Gentiles figures prominently in my application of this timeline. Treat this short presentation as an introduction to the more substantive treatment of the subject in Presentation XVII.

    5. 5. The Bible traces the story of the Jewish people from the time of Abraham’s calling to their presence in Eternity’s New Jerusalem. That story has several elements of interest to this study: Purely historical narrative Prophecy with historical fulfillment Prophecy having current fulfillment Prophecy yet to find fulfillment
    6. 6. Each element in the story of Israel helps shape our understanding of Bible prophecy in distinct ways: The purely historical narrative provides a guiding context to interpreting embedded OT prophecy. It roots OT prophecy in historical realities. Prophecy historically fulfilled provides a confidence boost and teaches us how to properly interpret prophecy not yet fulfilled.
    7. 7. Prophecy with current fulfillment locates us on God’s timeline, whets our enthusiasm for study and calls us to spiritual attention. Prophecy with future fulfillment finds us standing a-tip-toe, peering forward while we look back at patterns of fulfillments in the past for interpretive guidance.
    8. 8. Get acquainted with the story of Israel and its people from God’s perspective and you . . . Increase your confidence in the integrity of God’s Word We encounter fulfillment of the historical prophecies Prophecies surrounding and flowing from Israel’s 1948 return to the land appear in the process of fulfillment before our eyes.
    9. 9. Know the prophecies attached to Israel’s story and you have a secure and continuous timeline upon which to place the events of Revelation and the prophecies of Paul and Jesus. When we place God’s prophecies about the Jews alongside His promises to them and remember our God’s determination to keep His Word, we discover the means by which He will do precisely that!
