Jews Targeted in European Hate Crimes but “Aliyah” is Ill-Timed says Expert
Netanyahu has been a strong pillar as Israel needs leadership facing danger from surrounding hostile forces. Nevertheless, it’s not a good time for “aliyah” (returning of Jews to their homeland), says Richard Ruhling, author on Bible prophecy topics.
Netanyahu’s call for return of Jews from Europe has been negatively seen by Hollande, Merkel, and Danish leadership, but their interest is probably political–easily melted by fickle media, says Ruhling, citing two events with ominous portent.
One is the rise of ISIS, “that evil servant” that begins to smite his fellow servants at the beginning of end-times, Matthew 24:48-51. The beheadings of Christians and even children, identify this evil servant that Ruhling believes will beget air-strikes in the end-time application of Daniel 8:5…
History supports Alexander the Great’s victory over the Medes and Persians, seen in Daniel 8, but “history repeats” and Gabriel told Daniel that his vision was “at the time of the end,” Daniel 8:17. Ruhling says the Medes and Persians are now Iraq and Iran/ISIS–radical Islam bent on annihilating the Israelites from the land that God covenanted to give Abraham for his “seed.”
Nevertheless, Ruhling sees Arab nations also as descendants of Abraham and Ishmael, adding that Christians are included as apostle Paul wrote– “If you are Christ’s, you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” [of land], Galatians 3:29.
Ruhling thinks this is for end-times when ‘antichrist’ compels false worship by marking everyone as in Revelation 13:15-17.
Another omen of end-times is the solar eclipse and blood moon scheduled for Passover, a Jewish time of judgment– “The sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the…day of the LORD. Ruhling puts that passage (Joel 2:31) with Zechariah 14:1,2, judgment on Jerusalem.
