Israel and the end times

Here is what the Bible says about Israel in the end times:

There will be a mass return of Jews to the land of Israel (Deuteronomy 30:3;Isaiah 43:6;Ezekiel 34:11-13;36:24;37:1-14).

The Antichrist will make a 7-year covenant of “peace” with Israel (Isaiah 28:18;Daniel 9:27).

The temple will be rebuilt in Jerusalem (Daniel 9:27;Matthew 24:15;2 Thessalonians 2:3-4;Revelation 11:1).

The Antichrist will break his covenant with Israel, and worldwide persecution of Israel will result (Daniel 9:27;12:1,11;Zechariah 11:16;Matthew 24:15,21;Revelation 12:13). Israel will be invaded (Ezekiel chapters 38-39).

Israel will finally recognize Jesus as their Messiah (Zechariah 12:10). Israel will be regenerated, restored, and regathered (Jeremiah 33:8;Ezekiel 11:17;Romans 11:26).

There is much turmoil in Israel today. Israel is persecuted, surrounded by many  enemies. It always has been. This hatred and persecution of Israel is only a hint of what will happen in the end times (Matthew 24:15-21). The latest round of persecution began when Israel was reconstituted as a nation in 1948. Many Bible prophecy scholars believed the six-day Arab-Israeli war in 1967 was the “beginning of the end.” Could what is taking place in Israel today indicate that the end is near? Yes. Does it necessarily mean the end is near? No. Jesus Himself said it best, “Watch out that no one deceives you. . . . You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come” (Matthew 24:4-6).
