Do you believe in miracles? If you want to see a miracle, there is no greater miracle than God’s love for his chosen people and the preservation of them over the millennia. In the book Miracle of Israel, Gary Frazier and Jim Fletcher examine the example of Israel and how God demonstrates his faithfulness in the story of Israel, both past and present.
This book traces the history of the Jewish people. It begins all the way back with Abraham and God’s promises to Abraham, weaves through the Judges and Kings, and discusses the prophets as a look at Israel past. For Israel’s present, Frazier and Fletcher, looks at the time of Jesus, the destruction of the temple, Zionism and Israel’s waiting for a return to the land, and the rebirth of the modern State of Israel. Along the way, the authors present many modern miracles as evidences of God’s special care of Israel. The end of the book turns to a view of Biblical promises of the future. In this, we learn more about “God’s endgame,” the promised millennial kingdom and future glory. The authors also include several appendices, including prophecies fulfilled at the first coming of Christ, fulfillment of Biblical prophecies, understanding the Balfour Declaration, and the time of Israel’s judgment.
This book has been a welcome addition to my current reading. As a dispensationalist, I share what most dispensationalists have in common, a love for both the people and the country of Israel. I heard a speaker recently say that American dispensationalists would like to think of Israel as the 51st state of the United States, and I couldn’t agree more to the love of Israel that we all share. The authors have done a great job of capturing evidence of God’s love for Israel and for the fact that Israel has a part in God’s plan for the future. If you’re unsettled on the question of whether or not Israel is still loved by and a part of God’s plan, this is a great book to read to help you find the evidence you need for the miracle of God’s love and faithfulness toward his people.
