They absolutely are!!! The Bible states that in the end times "There will be a mass return of Jews to the land of Israel"-This was utterly incomprehensible as Jews were not in Israel for thousands of years. But as foretold in the Bible, On may 14th, 1948 Israel claimed independence. The Bible also states that in the end times, there will be famines, earthquakes, wars, and rumors of wars, existence of a 200,000,000 man army(China-the first of its kind EVER), return of the Hebrew language to Isreal (Prior to the restoration of Israel in 1948, Hebrew was a dead language. Now Hebrew is spoken throughout Israel), the rise of Russai (Magog), and Plans for a one world government! Now the one prophecy still needing to be filled is the rebuilding of the temple on the Temple Mount.
Everything the Bible has said, has come true, so keep your eyes on Israel for the Temple will be rebuilt and a great army will rise againest Israel, and that army will be superaturally destroyed by God!!
The End is Near!
