Some people know Jerusalem as the City of Fire, some know it as the Holy City; however, you want to call it, Israel’s capital is turning into the world’s hottest travel destination for 2018.
In further evidence that Israel’s charm offensive with Gulf States and majority-Muslim African states may be bearing fruit, Chad’s President Idriss Deby is currently visiting the country – the first such visit since the establishment of the state. It comes against the backdrop of intense Israeli efforts led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in recent years. (Relations between the two countries were severed in 1972).
Many Jewish sources interpret this scene as the revival of the Jewish People and the return to the Land of Israel. Like the dry bones that no-one believed could show signs of life, so too the Ten Tribes of the Jewish People would be revived, and come back to reignite life in Israel. We have seen this prophecy come true in our lifetime. Against all odds, the words of God came true, and the Jewish people have returned home and revived the land of Israel. There is no other land in the world that waited for their people to come back, and we did it after 2000 years, just as God promised, ink on parchment in the Bible.
