Welcome friends in the wonderful name of Jesus! This is Rev. Ron & welcome to Modern-day Watchmen Ministries. As I shared in my last blog our great God is in control of history because He is the only One who knows the future and He has told us ahead of time in His prophetic word. Today, let’s look at a couple of ancient prophecies that have been fulfilled in our generation. The 1st one is by the prophet Zephaniah over 2,500 yrs ago and it is the miraculous restoration of the original Hebrew language!
Zeph.3:9 says: “For then I will restore to my people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the Lord, to serve Him in one accord”.
Friends, in all of history, no nation has ever lost it’s original language only to recover it again after so many centuries of being non-existent and scattered all over the world-except the nation Israel! But a Jew by the name of Eliazar Ben Yehuda had a vision from God that he was chosen to restore the Hebrew language-“the tongue of the prophets of old”.
Yehuda began with only about 7,000 words handed down thru the centuries from the priests who had been responsible for the Temple worship in Jesus day. He was able to contact a few Jews living in other countries who had retained some ancient Hebrew words. He also had to come up with new words for things that didn’t even exist back then like fountain pen, automobile, electricity, etc..!
Ultimately, Ben Yehuda was able miraculously restore and recreate nearly the entire Hebrew language, and now, once again, it is the common language taught and spoken by all Jews in Israel. And friends today, if Isaiah and Zephaniah walked down the streets of Jerusalem, the could converse and be understood in the original Hebrew language!
In closing: Fulfilled Bible prophecy proves the God’s Word is true and reliable. No other religious book even dares to predict the future friends and there’s a really good reason for that ok? Only an omniscient, all-knowing God knows the future in advance! “For I am God, and there is no one like me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are still to come” (Isaiah 46:9-10). God bless you all my friends & until next time this is Rev.Ron signing off as usual:
MARANATHA-COME LORD JESUS!!!
