Now, Jews…they don’t have an End Times prophecy per se. What they call The End of Days (aḥarit ha-yamim, אחרית הימים), is not a pre-ordained event but rather brought about by religious observance and good deeds.
Good deeds my Tuchus! They worked theirs off to fulfill their end of the bargain when it comes to bringing the end of days.For both the Christian and Jewish End times, three things must happen:
There must be “gathering of the exiles“. In other words, Jews returning to the land of Israel. Check. As Theodor Hertzl, the founder of modern Zionism said “If you will it, it is not a dream”. Guess who else said that? Walter Sobchak in the Big Lebowski. Point is, the first Israelis did not wait around for God to bring them to Israel. They went there and turned a sandtrap into a paradise. Which brings us to:
“The land of Israel will turn from a desert into a garden, flourishing with fruits”. The Golan Heights. That Israeli wine country, my friends. Blessed is the fruit of the vine!
There’s also the Rebuilding the Temple (which I’ve mentioned before)
And finally the return of animail sacrifice to said temple. I’ll talk about that in upcoming post.
We need to follow their example. We cannot wait for prophecy to come true (although it is coming true around us), we’ve got to make it come true. Stick with me, and I’ll show you how.
