We need to interpret the modern return to the land of Israel and the constitution of this modern phenomenon called the State of Israel.
We need to view this not as the fulfilment of eschatological prophecy, but we need to view it as the preliminary requirement that sets in motion the fulfilment of eschatological prophecy. Meaning that now they are in the land, these events can unfold. Now that they’re in the land these things can take place.
Because how do you flee Jerusalem if you are not in Jerusalem?
How can you be banished from Israel, if you’re not in the land of Israel?
There’s all of these verses about eschatological, apocalyptic expulsion and exile from the land that presuppose a Jewish presence in the land. (Dalton, Thomas, Covenant and Controversy part 3)
This is the third of a series of three videos. The other two parts have been posted previously.
The videos can also be accessed and downloaded via the vimeo site by clicking on the “vimeo” logo at the bottom of the video.
I have downloaded the films from that site onto a USB stick, I find that format makes it easier for me to watch half an hour at a time rather than have to find time to watch it all at once.
I think the films are very well written and produced and I highly recommend them.
