Reader Question: Do you believe Israel is facing the same challenges today just like in the times of the Old Testament?

Reader question: OK. I have never asked a question on this page before, but I feel inclined to ask something. It is obviously about Israel and ministry which is why I am using this page. I have been reading the books of 1 and 2 Chronicles lately. I guess my question to you is this. Do you believe Israel is facing the same challenges today just like in the times of the Old Testament?

Absolutely, while history does not repeat itself — it often rhymes! We know that in the Old Testament, the Bible talks about Antiochus Epiphanes Daniel. The Greecian King desecrated the Temple, erected an altar with a pig, and called for the destruction of all the Torah Scrolls.

Jesus said in Matthew 24:15 “So when you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand),”

The Lord was referring to what took place under Antiochus … so this is a definitive scripture talking about how the prophetic future will “rhyme” with its ancient past!  :)

God bless,
