No one can deny it: America is unique among the nations of the earth. Standing as a light in a darkened world, America has indeed inscribed an indelible mark in history. But another nation has also stood out uniquely as well--that nation being Israel. From its origin to its restoration, Israel, too, has impacted the world in ways that defy human reason.
Some may try to explain things away and relegate America and Israel to products of “chance” and “coincidence.” But common sense would tell us otherwise, for there is truly something deeper, much deeper. The answer is not far away in some distant land or buried below tons of sand and rock. The answer is very near us. It is contained within a book which is seldom read these days. The answer to the uniqueness of both nations is found in the sacred volume known as the Holy Bible. Within its divinely inspired pages is the history of the nation of Israel, but there is also another history told there, the history of a nation well known today: America.
Is it word for word? No. But the themes and events presented quite parallel one another in a startling way. Both Israel and America’s past, present, and future can be found in the Scripture, and it is the future part which concerns most of us. For how it all began is how it will begin again.
