Some speculate this prophecy was purposely fulfilled but there is one teeny tiny problem. Israel's rebirth took place to the day
prophesied to be fulfilled. Many accusations then come flying forth that it was done on purpose but they forget two things:
1) The math was not realized until about a decade ago- not prior to 1948.
2). There were about a dozen prophecies that mentioned the specific circumstances that would surround Israel's rebirth. It was not a vague prophecy
that Israel would simply exist at the end times. It was multiple things that had to occur.
Here are a few:
A). Be reborn in one day (this happened).
B). The Jew would slowly trickle in (this happened).
C). They would immediately be surrounded by enemies (this happened).
D). The precise names of the countries who would be their enemies were given by name (this coalition now exists).
E). They would regain Jerusalem (this happened).
F). There would be no king (this happened- and a prophecy stating a country without a king was preposterous in the age of monarchies when this
prophecy was given).
G). The land would blossom (since its occupation the desert has become a type of oasis in the ME).
H). There would be attempts to divide the land (this is happening with the Palestine issue).
The list goes on.
Remember, the Bible is over 25% prophecy. And I am sure you know how big the Bible is! lol There is much, much prophecy that has been proven to be
fulfilled throughout history.
Daniel, for example, prophesied the timing of Jesus to the very year. His prophecies concerning the succession of world empires and the rise of
certain kings (including Alexander the Great) are so impressive the skeptic's only option is to claim a late of authorship. But due to this, the
dating of Daniel is now one of the most proven out of all the Bible books.
