I wished to offer this as a series on
WHEN A NATION IS A MIRACLE -
35 Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day, [and] the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts [is] his name: 36 If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD, [then] the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever. 37 Thus saith the LORD; If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, saith the LORD.
ISRAEL IS A SIGN TO THE REST OF THE WORLD – what goes on in Israel basically tells the world when to slow down, when to speed up. At this point we certainly have been speeding along with little or not regard to what is occurring in
SIGNS ARE IMPORTANT - Farmer John lived on a quiet rural highway. But, as time went by, the traffic slowly built up at an alarming rate. The traffic was so heavy and so fast that his chickens were being run over at a rate of three to six a day. So one day Farmer John called the sheriff's office and said, "You've got to do something about all of these people driving so fast and killing all of my chickens." / "What do you want me to do?" asked the sheriff./
"I don't care, just do something about those crazy drivers!"
So the next day he had the county workers go out and erected a sign that said: SLOW: SCHOOL CROSSING Three days later Farmer John called the sheriff and said, "You've got to do something about these drivers. The 'school crossing' sign seems to make them go even faster."
So, again, the sheriff sends out the county workers and they put up a new sign: SLOW: CHILDREN AT PLAY / That really sped them up. So Farmer John called and called and called every day for three weeks. Finally, he asked the sheriff, "Your signs are doing no good. Can I put up my own sign?" The sheriff told him, "Sure thing, put up your own sign." He was going to let Farmer John do just about anything in order to get him to stop calling everyday to complain. The sheriff got no more calls from Farmer John. Three weeks later, curiosity got the best of the sheriff and he decided to give Farmer John a call. "How's the problem with those drivers. Did you put up your sign?" "Oh, I sure did. And not one chicken has been killed since then. I've got to go. I'm very busy." He hung up the phone.
The sheriff was really curious now and he thought to himself, "I'd better go out there and take a look at that sign... it might be something that WE could use to slow down drivers..." So the sheriff drove out to Farmer John's house,
and his jaw dropped the moment he saw the sign. It was spray-painted on a sheet of wood:
Go slow and watch out for chicks!!

I want to begin today by telling you that a lot of the problem in the interpretation of MODERN DAY PROPHETS is this: It is impossible to understand Bible Prophecy without first having an understanding of
The people and the
-The Jew is God’s yardstick/ The Jew is God’s outline
-The Jew is God’s blueprint/ -The Jew is God’s program and plan
There are times when we reach a sense in which we think GOD IS SILENT TO US BOTH Personally and Corporately – but it is then like never before we should WATCH
The eyes of the world are focused on this tiny little state – and so it should be for there is located the NERVE
