The year ended with a catastrophic earthquake and tsunami.  Many are asking if this is the fulfillment of any specific prophecy.  We will consider this question in the light of Jesus’ own teaching about the future.

There have been many other significant developments this year that relate to prophecy.  Those will be addressed in the second half of this review.

As always, we do not attempt to set dates, or go beyond what the Scriptures teach, but it is becoming increasingly clear that prophecy is being fulfilled right before our eyes!

Jesus Himself said that it was not the disciples’ business to know the day or the hour of His return. (Matthew 24:36; 25:13)  But, He did say that we should be able to recognize the signs of the times.

When evening comes, you say, “It will be fair weather, for the sky is red,” and in the morning, “Today it will be stormy, for the sky is red and overcast.” You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times.     Matthew 16:2-3

The most striking prophecy fulfilled in our generation is the rebirth of the nation of Israel in 1948.  This had been predicted in great detail in Ezekiel, chapters 36 and 37.  Israel is symbolized by the fig tree in Jesus’ great message on the Mt. of Olives.

Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door. I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.     Matthew 24:32-35
