An intractable Middle East problem faces man today, one
that can only become worse and worse with the passage of
The reason for the problem is the existence of an
Israeli nation in the midst of mainly Moslem nations
— a nation presently comprised of some 6,000,000 Jews
who have returned to the land covenanted to Abraham,
Isaac, and Jacob before it is time for the Jewish people
The “Jewish people” have returned to the land in
unbelief, prior to repentance, prior to
their conversion, and while the house still lies
desolate (Exodus 12:1ff; Daniel 9:24-27;
The “manslayer” (KJV: slayer) has returned
to the land of her possession before Christ completes
His high priestly ministry, apart from availing
herself of the ransom (Numbers 35:1ff).
God, in time past, because of the Jewish people’s
continued disobedience, extending over centuries of
time, uprooted His people from their land and drove them
out among the nations to effect repentance through
persecution at the hands of the Gentiles.
And, out among the nations, the Jewish people possess
a promise (seen numerous places in Scripture) that
when repentance is forthcoming, God will hear from
heaven and act in complete accord with His promise (cf.
Exodus 1:8; 2:23-25; 3:1ff;
Leviticus 26:14-42; Deuteronomy 30:1-3; 2
Chronicles 6:24-27; 7:12-14).
Until repentance is forthcoming, God will not act. God
will act with respect to a deliverance of His people
only after His purpose for uprooting them from their
land and driving them out among the nations has been
realized. God’s Word is crystal clear on the
In this respect, what is an unrepentant and unconverted
Israeli nation doing back in the land? And what are the
ramifications of the Jewish people being back in the
land under existing conditions?
The preceding is what this book is all about — not what
man may think, but what Scripture has to say. Numerous
facets of the matter are covered from different passages
of Scripture, with a particular emphasis on the beast
and the harlot in Revelation 17:1-19:6.
