The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying, Jeremiah 30:1
And the whole valley of the dead bodies, and of the ashes, and all the fields unto the brook of Kidron, unto the corner of the horse gate toward the east, shall be holy unto the Lord; it shall not be plucked up, nor thrown down any more forever.
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. And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the Lord thy God. Amos 9:14-15
Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.
Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west; I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth; Isaiah 43:5-6
For the day of the Lord of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low: Isaiah 2:12
Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel. Ezekiel 37:12
That then the Lord thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the Lord thy God hath scattered thee. Deuteronomy 30:3
Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children. Isaiah 66:8
My mother is in her eighties. In fact, she will be 88 in December. When she was young she started attending this tent meeting church with her mother and she along with her mother made a profession of faith in the God of the universe. There was one message that preacher spoke about and that was the Jews were going to regain their land and become a nation again. After about 2,000 years of being out of the land they would begin again and become a nation. The preacher, Pastor B.M. Nottage, emphasized that when that happened it would be a major turning point in world history.
My mother, who was married by that time, said that suddenly in all the newspapers the headlines read: THE JEWS WERE BACK IN THEIR ANCIENT LAND AND THE NATION OF ISRAEL WAS REBORN. That historic event happened under the presidency of Harry Truman at the end of World War II.
There were many countries who opposed this; their major concern was the Palestinian community and the surrounding Arab nations. Because of WWII, oil was a big problem for many industrialized nations, which included the United states. It is my understanding that they were looking for water, and oil was discovered. One could merely scratch the surface of the land and oil would appear. That one resource has given the Arab nations a strong and powerful influence among the nations especially concerning Israel.
However, the United States still voted yes for Israel and congratulated the new nation on May 14, 1948. Immediately, war broke out between the Jewish and Arab nations. 500,000 Jews surrounded by 50,000,000 Arabs. The nation of Israel has managed to survive thus far with their major help coming from the United States. They recently celebrated their 70th anniversary as a nation.
Again I state, the African American community via slavery and other subservient means made all of this possible. Their blood, hopelessness, and helplessness is still our deprivation.
