Gerald Rowlands’ new book THE MESSIAH COMES TO ISRAEL which has been released in July 2010, is certainly thought provoking and even somewhat controversial. He introduces a prophetic possibility that is quite different from any of the usual Christian End Time scenarios. From Zechariah 12 and Psalm 83 he describes an attack launched in the last days upon Israel by all her nearby neighbors supported by Iran. This attack concludes with a supernatural and astounding victory for Israel through a direct intervention of God and the “Angel of the LORD.” This is followed by the astounding revelation of who the Angel of the Lord truly is.

Zechariah 12:10 then describes a time of Israel’s national grief and repentance towards their deliverer who reveals Himself as the Messiah, the One who was previously pierced. An outpouring of the Spirit of grace and supplications on all the descendants of David and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem elicits a spirit of grief and repentance by the entire Jewish nation. This verse also describes the national recognition of the Messiah as the One consistently predicted throughout the Jewish Scriptures.

This amazing revelation would introduce a period of peace, prosperity and exaltation for Israel of the nature described by Isaiah 60, an inspiring prophetic chapter that begins with “Arise and shine Jerusalem for the glory of the Lord has risen upon you…The Lord will arise upon you and His glory shall be seen upon you…Gentiles shall come to your light and kings to the brightness of your rising”.

While gross darkness covers the Gentile world, Israel will be illuminated before all the nations on earth by the Shekinah glory of the Lord. All of this transpires well before the war described in Ezekiel 38 and 39. Indeed it is the peace and prosperity that comes to Israel following this victory, that entices Gog and Magog to finally launch their attack on Israel which is also repulsed and powerfully defeated by the sovereign God.

All of this makes for fascinating, challenging and insightful reading that every Bible lover should closely study. Without an understanding of this amazing chain of events that will happen very soon, an essential aspect of Bible prophecy is missing. These events constitute the next item in God’s prophetic agenda.
