BREAKING: Netanyahu Pressures Knesset To Pass Nation-State Bill THIS MONTH



In what is undoubtedly the most significant prophetic development so far in 2018, Prime Minister Netanyahu has asked his coalition partners in the Israeli Knesset to get the final version of the Jewish Nation-State Basic Law finalized and passed this month before the next legislative recess (source).  I've been closely following the status of this bill since March when it finally left committee (it has been in a limbo state since 2011).

I've had several people ask me why this is so significant, so let me briefly explain.  There are numerous biblical prophecies that foretell a time when the Jews scattered around the world would return to their ancient biblical homeland, the nation of Israel would be reborn, their ancient capital would be returned, and then the times of the Gentiles would be fulfilled during a time of trouble leading up to the return of Israel's Messiah—the Lord Jesus Christ.

The second regathering of the Jews, the establishment of Israel, and the return of the city of Jerusalem into Jewish hands has largely already happened, mostly in the 20th century, during the first half of the Fig Tree Generation.  However, this was a regathering in unbelief as the Jewish people still largely reject their own Messiah.  And the nation that was established in 1948 is technically a secular country with little connection to its biblical roots.

If passed, the Jewish State Bill will, with force of law, return Israel to its biblical identity with nothing left but to accept Yeshua as the Messiah sometime during the coming Tribulation.  This law, in my humble opinion, signals that the times of the Gentiles during the Church Age have reached their end and God will now (or very, very soon) return His focus to the redemption of Israel as prophesied in Acts 15 and Romans 11.

Another way of looking at this is that in 1948 the nation was established; in 1967 the city was returned; and, possibly, in 2018 the people and nation's identity will be restored.  1948 (nation), 1967 (city), and 2018 (identity).  In effect, this month the nation of Israel will be accepting God's promise to Abraham that the Holy Land belongs to him and his descendants through Isaac and Jacob.  The country will no longer be a secular one with a name that happens to be the same as the ancient biblical Kingdom, but an actual restoration of the Jews' ancient biblical homeland.

Side note: It's interesting that the nation was established in May, Jerusalem returned in June, and it looks likely that the nation's identity could be restored in July.  From 1948 to 1967 to 2018 is a sequential ordering of months ranging from the month of Pentecost to the month before the Fall Festivals begin.  There is a lot of agreement among students of Bible prophecy that Christ will return to earth in the Fall, likely on one of the September/October biblical holidays.  That just leaves August, typically the month of Elul, to find some major significance soon (The unveiling of the Trump-Kushner peace plan?  Or perhaps something of far greater importance during the Tribulation?).  It's interesting that Israel's restoration over the past 70 years has coincided with the sequential biblical months leading up to Tishri, and mirrors how the restoration of the Gentiles also began in May, on Pentecost, in 32 or 33 AD, and could also be completed in Tishri if the rapture occurs on the Feast of Trumpets or Shimini Atzeret.

It's also interesting that the momentous events last July on the Temple Mount, when Israel wrested control from the Jordanian Waqf for the first time in 50 years, were a potential one year prelude to a much more momentous event this month.

A note about Israeli law: Israel doesn't have a formal constitution like the United States, but has something akin to it called Basic Law.  Israeli Basic Laws are the highest laws of the land and supersede regular legislation.  The Jewish State Bill, if passed, will be one of these and will override the secular courts in areas addressed by the law's dictates.  Passing any type of legislation in Israel is essentially a four part process: first, a bill is drafted and sent to committee for review.  Sometimes bills get stuck in committee for years and never see the light of day.  Second, if they can manage to get approval they go to the full Knesset for a first readingThird, if they pass the first reading they move on to a second reading, and fourth, if they pass the second reading they move on to a third reading/final vote.  Once a bill passes a third reading in the Knesset it becomes the law of the land.

The Jewish State Bill has left committee (after being stuck for seven years) and passed its first full reading in the Knesset.  Netanyahu wants his coalition to make a few small tweaks to the bill and then get its second and third readings completed this month.

Here is a recent draft of the bill:

    4. Gary, you’re correct; however, in the first 3 1/2 years of Daniels 70th Week (aka the 7 year Tribulation), the Antichrist will be a friend to Israel, and will likely help them rebuild their temple. But at the midway point, he takes a mortal wound, comes back to life, but now he’s no longer the friendly Antichrist, he’s now the Beast, and to your point, he will hunt them down with a vengeance in the final 3 1/2 years, known as the GREAT Tribulation. But you’re right, they will soon start moving to Israel in droves.

    1. At this point, if Netanyahu can get his coalition to schedule the votes, it looks very likely to pass. It passed the first reading 64-50.

      There are a couple of minor sticking points:

      1. A Likud debate over whether to include language about democracy or to have Jewish law supersede the courts in areas not yet legislated.

      2. Whether to add back in the Hebrew language clause making it the official language.

  4. I think we still might be waiting till the 2000th anniversary of the the Lord's crucifixion minus 7 years for the tribulation. Which I think might be 2023. I know there is some debate on exactly what year, but we are getting close. There was a short video on Scottie Clark's YT channel with Alex Jones. Now before anyone starts in on Mr. Jones, I do not watch him. I've seen a couple of brief videos and usually move on fairly quickly as the controversy over what is fake and what is real news can and is a distraction from what we should be doing. Spreading the good news of Jesus Christ. I do think we are very close to his return and need to be concerned about being busy about his work when he does return. Marinotha!

    1. It's amazing how close we're getting to those dates. Growing up I remember numerous prophecy scholars pointing to 2030-33 and 7 years before 2023-26. We're now, at most, about 7 years out from the rapture (imho). That said, I think there is one other thing we have to factor in: a max generation of 80 years (Ps. 90:10) and Jesus' prophecy that everything (including His return) would be completed in the Fig Tree Generation. 1948 + 80 = 2028. 2028 - 7 = 2021. I personally believe the rapture will happen within the next 3.25 years. Probably on the shorter end of that spectrum because of the REV 12 Sign.

      Matt P at Daily Crow also recognizes the REV 12 Sign, but speculates it could signal the beginning of a 7 years of plenty preparatory period followed by the 7 year Tribulation. Thus a rapture in 2024. In the meantime we might see the Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38 wars, Israel expand, and the rise of AI religion.

      Either way you slice it, we are living in the decade of the rapture and there's not even a whole decade left (just 8 years max). Just think about that. Amazing. But this year is incredibly promising.

      I reply, Okay, I'm thinking about that. It means we shouldn't make any plans that will require more than 8 years for completion, yes? Don't sign up for Medical school, for example. Now let's imagine that, because of your prediction, some budding M.D. gives up his dream of helping people heal and 8 years from now is found without the training he needed to be the man he could have been. Matthew 18:6 The purpose of prophecy is to confirm, not predict:

    3. I agree. It all has to fit in within Moses’ definition of a “generation”, 70-80 years. (Psalm 90:10) On May 14th, 1948, I always picture God turning over a giant hourglass, 70-80 years, and it’s quickly running out of sand.

  5. Micah, you might be interested in the link below to the Berisheet Prophecy. I found them fascinating & the bottom line for them based on the Fall in the Garden, to Jesus' crucifixion and the 6,000 year allotted time for mankind prior to the 1,000 years of rest, does indeed equate to 2023. The point they focused on is this does not tell us the time of The Rapture, simply the time when The Tribulation would begin. Since the rapture is not the trigger for The Tribulation, but the Covenant with Death and Hell is, there could be a gap. Their interpretation is the Rapture could happen at any time, but no later than 2023. It was very interesting & informative - 3 short videos using Berisheet - the Beginning. http://passoverprophecy.com/ There is no registration for the 1st video - to see the 2nd and 3rd there is an innocuous registration without asking for name, merely email. They've sent me a welcome email only & nothing else. Blessings - Sherry

      I've preached and written about Isa 46:10 before without even realising that when God says He declares the end from the 'beginning' He means exactly that! He literally declares what is to come right from the beginning... from the very first word in the Bible. Amazing.

    6. elgordo the place you described is where we should all desire to be - In awe and continuous adoration of our amazing God! When you continue to search and pray, He shows us these nuggets to encourage and strengthen us. This was a serious strengthening and encouragement for me. I really loved how the brother said, it could be any second, but it can't be any later than 2023. I think Gary has a very valid point about the fig tree generation 80 year limit, which pulls it back to 2021 at the latest & perhaps sooner because of Rev 12. Blessings - Sherry

  7. Gary - do you have some scriptures to back up the significance of this law passing? I am struggling to come to grips with differentiating between the people being called 'Jews/Israelites' all over the world - with the land of Israel being recognised to some extent globally as well (some obv disclaimers) - and what the law of Israel is simply going to achieve in its internal recognition of itself. What will the knesset achieve prophetically in their own law that God has not already ordained simply through the various events taking place in 1948, 67 and now??

    I scoured through many scriptures last night looking for some relevant verses...plenty on Jerusalem/Israel (Sion), but all indicative of what God has called Jerusalem/Israel (part. the dual prophesy of Isaiah 66), not what the law has made it...if that makes sense.

    1. Ryan, see my post below, this has to do with the official recognition of JUDAH again. This was not the case yet until this day. Zechariah 12:5-10

    2. That's a good question. I'm not aware of any direct prophecy declaring that the modern Jewish Knesset would pass a Jewish State Bill. That's not the significance. To me, the prophetic significance is that the passage of this bill will signal a sea change between Israel's first 70 years since 1948 (secular and mentally detached from the covenant) and from now on (holding to the Abrahamic covenant and recognizing that the land belongs only to the Jews).

      There are several other significant pieces to the bill including making the Hebrew calendar the official calendar of the land and enforcing the Sabbath and biblical holidays and days of rest.

      Perhaps more importantly, there is a clause in this bill that allows for Jewish-only communities to be formed. Since Israel is 3/4th Jewish, that effectively allows the people to begin pushing out the remaining Arab population.

      Furthermore, declaring Jerusalem to be the official capital of Israel is a testament to Acts 15 and a shadow of prophecies Jesus gave in the Olivet Discourse of a time that the city would no longer belong to the Gentiles.

    3. It seems Israel is about to go to war against Gaza and that may further push the Arab population out.

  9. Daniel at Informed Christian's YTC has a new post with very interesting points upcoming concerning Mars. It reaches closest point to earth 7/6 thru Sept (6thish?) with maximum at 7/31. Last iteration was 2003, as I recall, and 60,000 years prior to that, well.

    On 7/6, Mars will exceed Jupiter, the 'King' planet, in its luminosity. As 'King', in astronomical parlance, refers to 'Ruling' as the brightest body of a type, when Mars exceeds Jupiter, in effect, the 'Crown' passes to Mars. Symbolically this is simply dripping. Now consider that before the White Rider 'rides out as conqueror bent on conquest' (quite befitting Mars) he was GIVEN A CROWN. Maranatha! ("I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was GIVEN a CROWN, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest." Rev 6:2, NIV, emph mine)

  10. Gary, this is truly prophetic. It makes so much sense (notice the "bill has been STUCK FOR SEVEN YEARS"...). The Zionist really are in a great hurry now before the Jubilee ends. This also means that Netanyahu officially declares not only the state of Israel to be a "Jewish nation" = JUDAH but altogether the Jews now also thereby declare BEFORE GOD (in whom they not yet believe through Jesus Christ) that this country and the city of Jerusalem are His and impartible. This is the perfect preparation for the upcoming "peace deal" then because if they just declared unity, impartiality and a JEWISH nation before God then He will even have more reason to strike them when they just turn around to divide the land and the city a few days after to agree peace with the Palestine whom God never agreed to have peace with nor allow such a thing on HIS place on earth. Jacobs trouble is near. You can touch it. MARANATHA!

  13. Hello all!

    Sorry I haven’t commented in a while. I’ve been busy with finishing up my last year of high school. I actually graduated a year early. Also, I started online college courses via Liberty University. I am trying to earn a bachelor’s degree, and after that, I’m going to go for my master’s and my doctorate. I think God wants me to be a pastor. However, if the End is fast approaching, I might not get a chance to preach or even finish up my degrees! However, God has a plan, and I’ll wait to see what He has in store for me.

    It would be weird if something prophetically significant, perhaps the Rapture, happens on the one year anniversary of the Revelation 12 Sign! I think it would be kind of fitting that it would happen on that day.

    On an unrelated note, I do have a question to ask. I don’t know if this would be possible, but I was thinking about writing an article on here. I was thinking about writing a study on the Millennium and what could happen during it. I’m not sure if you all would let me write an article on here, but I’d thought it would be neat to take a shot at it. Is that ok?

    God bless you all and maranatha!

    1. Congratulations Matthew!

      I know it's a great feeling knowing high school is behind you and one year early. Wow, that's awesome!

      Your plans for the future are so very important and put there by G-d. But if I may, please let me offer you this encouragement. Live on mission today. Don't put off what can be done today. Each of us are given power by G-d to be His leaders and serve where we are. In effect, we are all pastors, we are all his ministers of faith. Blessed are we when we hear that calling in the moments that He has ordained to be ready, prepared, present and there at that crucial moment when we encounter those who need Him most.

      For as you walk in His footsteps and point the way to the Shepherd; feeding His sheep with the only food and drink that satisfy -- then you are truly a pastor. Walk in that today. Walk in that and give thanks in prayer for that calling everyday that you may be blessed to be a blessing...Loved to be loving and graced to be graceful!

      If you're interested in timelines, take a look at Steve Sewell's work at,

    2. Here's the basic timeline (by dates) from Steve at Blessed Hope 2018. If the rapture was on OCTOBER 1, 2018 (Shemini Atzeret) then the midpoint would occur APRIL 15, 2022 (Passover) and the return of our LORD on SEPTEMBER 23, 2025 (Rosh Hashana / Feast of Trumpets) which is also the 8-year anniversary of the Great Sign of Revelation 12.

      OCT 1, 2018 [Shemini Atzeret - 8th Day Solemn Assembly]
      APR 15, 2022 [Pesach / Passover]
      SEPT 23, 2025 [8-year anniversary of R12 Sign / Rosh Hashana / Yom Teruah / FoT]

      **NOTE, For those who are new to this space and rightfully so have their guard up for false teaching, these dates are a study of potential dates and times based upon timings provided in scripture. Please consider them PRAYERFULLY and approach them in light of the Word that we are given. Please use them to dig deeper into your Bibles and always seek the wisdom and teaching of G-d's Holy Spirit in all matters.

      It is not date setting, it is study of how prophetic timings of days we are given in Scripture may (or may not) fit to our calendar today. This is what Watchmen do as we look toward the Day of the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

      In all things, know that our time in this place is short. Look for those G-d given opportunities and share the love of Christ with someone special today!

      Definition: large, great, in the widest sense.

      The term "mega" in modern application brings to mind quantity in the millions. In mathematical terms that is 10E6 or 10^6 or just plain 1,000,000. Even as BIG as this would seem to be, it pales in comparison to the value Jesus put on how many times we must forgive:

      22 Jesus said to him, "I do not say to you seven times, but seventy-seven times." (Matthew 18:22 ESV)

      Now let's see, "seventy-seven" times may be expressed as 70E7 or 70^7 which equals 8.23543×10¹² or 8,235,430,000,000 times. That's 8.23 TRILLION TIMES!!!

      Makes one wonder if forgiveness is a wee bit more important that the Great Sign? I believe it is!

      Blessings,

      Pastor Rich

  19. Wish I could post images here, but according to www.spaceweather.com today (July 4th, 2018) there's a comet coming into the inner solar system that currently has a debris trail twice the size of Jupiter (260,000 km) and was discovered on September 23,2017... (Yep, THAT date). That site frequently updates, so if it's not there when you look, go back in time to see it. I already sent an email to the site if they want to publish it.

    1. Very interesting reading Kris! Thank you for sharing. It is shocking that our new cometary visitor to the inner solar system features an "atmosphere" that spans a diameter nearly double that of Jupiter!

      Quoting,

      "'The gas cloud around the comet's nucleus is about 4 arc minutes wide,' says Jรคger‎. That means the comet's atmosphere is 260,000 km in diameter, almost twice as wide as the planet Jupiter. These dimensions make it a relatively easy target for backyard telescopes."

      Source: http://www.spaceweather.com/

      For those who may already be wondering if it poses a threat to earth? No. We are far from it and this comet will pass the sun inside of Mercury's orbit. Most interesting is that it is GREEN (like an emerald?) and rivals the King planet in gaseous size. (Not mass)

      Keep looking up!

    3. More interesting live data on comet C/2017 S3 (PANSTARRS)

      https://theskylive.com/c2017s3-info

      This object has not yet found its way into apps like Sky Guide (on my iPhone at least). The comet will make it's closest approach to earth very soon and may become visible to the naked eye as it closes on the sun.

      Delete
    4. A final note on C/2017 S3 (PANSTARRS), it is located in the northern sky midway between the Pleiades and Ursa Minor (in the constellation Camelopardalis) and is entering our solar system at a perpendicular angle. Earth would not encounter its debris trail but it will make closest approach mid-August.

      Southern observers will need software to see this or travel to Hawaii for a visit to the observatories for a peek.

    5. Observation on Comet PANSTARRS (C/2017 S3),

      Quoting http://www.spaceweather.com/

      "APPROACHING GREEN COMET EXPLODES: A comet that could become visible to the naked eye in August has just exploded in brightness. Amateur astronomer Michael Jรคger‎ of Austria reports that Comet PANSTARRS (C/2017 S3) brightened 16-fold during the late hours of July 2nd, abruptly increasing in magnitude from +12 to +9. He took this picture of the comet's expanding green atmosphere shortly after the outburst"

      Photo of comet found at: http://www.spaceweather.com/images2018/04jul18/greencomet_strip2.jpg


      The arcing trajectory of this comet and its colour caught my attention given the day it was discovered and the arching path it will blaze about the sun.

      This brought me to (Revelation 4:3b)

      "and around the throne was a rainbow that had the appearance of an emerald."

      This emerald green comet that was discovered on the day of the Great Sign of Revelation 12 is about to mark a path as a rainbow above the sun, the centre (throne) of our solar system.

      Interesting....

    6. A PIN-POINT

      Don't know if anyone noticed this but if you look at the day count from the passing of Billy Graham to Shemini Atzeret (21-FEB-18 to 01-OCT-18) it is 222-days.

      What is Shemini Atzeret?

      https://www.unsealed.org/2017/10/shemini-atzeret.html

      Delete
    7. ANOTHER PIN-POINT

      [Note my *emphasis*]

      Day count from passing of Chuck Missler to Shemini Atzeret (*01*-MAY-18 to *01*-OCT-18) is the SAME as that of Billy Graham from his passing to Yom Teruah (Feast of Trumpets) last year (*21*-SEP-17 to *21*-FEB-18). 153-days or 5-Months!

      11 "So Simon Peter went aboard and hauled the net ashore, full of large fish, 153 of them. And although there were so many, the net was not torn." (John 21:11 ESV)

      Is it me or do I see some patterns emerging here?

      Delete
    8. Okay, and while I'm hogging this thread let's add one more thought...

      Billy passed 153-days after the BEGINNING of the Fall Festivals of 2017. Chuck passed 153-days before the END of the Fall Festivals of 2018. Yom Teruah (Feast of Trumpets) to Shemini Atzeret (8th Day Solemn Assembly).

      Billy passed on the fifth day of the week (Wednesday). I have yet to determine what time Chuck Missler passed but it would be either on the third-day or fourth-day of the week. If for Tuesday (the third day) it was the Second Passover or Pesach Sheni.

    9. I really need to get back to work here...

      Day count from Billy Graham's passing to Shemini Atzeret (21-FEB-18 to 01-OCT-18) is 222-days. Day count from Yom Teruah (21-SEPT-17 to 01-MAY-18) to the passing of Chuck Missler is 222-days.

      The sum of 153 + 222 is 375. A quick check of Strong's #375 for Greek shows the following,

      anapempรณ: to send up
      Original Word: แผ€ฮฝฮฑฯ€ฮญฮผฯ€ฯ‰
      Part of Speech: Verb
      Transliteration: anapempรณ
      Phonetic Spelling: (an-ap-em'-po)
      Short Definition: I send up to a higher tribunal, I send back
      Definition: I send up (to a higher tribunal), send back.

  24. It's been a little more than 50 years since the U.N. passed Resolution 242. It's is America's 242nd Birthday this year. For 242, Strong's Hebrew Concordance shows "Uzzen Sheerah: "portion of Sheerah," a place in Palestine" and Strong's Greek Concordance shows "to leap, gush forth (of water)". In the wake of the upcoming peace talks, this seems significant.

    I reply, Significant? C'mon, Melanie. How do you even know which edition of Strong's to use? I have a hardcover Strong's and the words assigned to the numbers you cite are different. I also looked in an online PDF edition, and the words were different again. I have a degree in mathematics and can assure you that if you're looking for numerical coincidences, given a large enough data set, you WILL find them. Whatever it is you hope to find. See, for example, here...

    https://dmitrybrant.com/fun-with-the-bible-code

    ...where an apparent unbeliever found all sorts of ridiculous "Bible Code" messages.

    But please don't get me wrong. I am a believer, and have been looking for our Blessed Hope for more than 35 years. But I fear the "Rapture Junkies" on sites like this are leading you astray. See my blog here...
