Israel at 70

Israel celebrated their 70th Year of Independence April 18-20 with 70 hours of celebration. The opening ceremony from Mt Hertzl was outstanding! Again, I feel I need to explain that this anniversary falls on May 14, 2018. In 1948 the Hebraic calendar had a leap year with 13 months, so Iyar 5 and May 14 were the same day. However, this year there is no leap year on either calendar so the celebrations are almost a full month apart. There will be celebrations on May 14 and there will be a parade of nations who will be coming to celebrate. This is also the date that the United States is expected  to officially move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

As I pondered this great event, I remembered being in the USSR in May 1991 after they had 70 years of communism. That was the year of “release” from the oppression started with Lenin and the Bolsheviks in 1917.

The number 70 is a great turning point in history. If you remember, it was at this point that Cyrus proclaimed it was time for the Jews to return to their land and rebuild the Temple. (2 Chronicles 36:22-23; Ezra 1:1; Jeremiah 25:12; 29:10) Is it time for the Third Temple? I am not jumping to a conclusion of what this 70th milestone means, but it is something to watch!

I hope you will gain understanding of what a significant period we are living in right now. We are “brought into the Kingdom for such a time as this” and it is a time to be on high alert, on the wall, watching and praying.
