Unfulfilled Prophecy for Israel

       We know God has plans for Israel in the future because there are unfulfilled prophecies that speak of Israel being in the land that God promised to Abraham (Gen. 12:1-3; 13:14-17; 15:18; Isa. 60:21; Jer. 16:14-16; 30:3; Ezek. 37:21-25).  Jesus Christ will rule on the throne of David for 1,000 years (2 Sam. 7:16; Isa. 9:6-7; Matt. 25:31; Luke 1:32-33; Rev. 20:1-6). One such clearly stated unfulfilled prophecy pertaining to Israel and Jesus Christ reads as follows:

He [Jesus Christ] will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David; and He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and His kingdom will have no end.” (Luke 1:32-33)

       This prophecy related to the Lord Jesus Christ and the “house of Jacob” will find its fulfillment at the Second Coming when Jesus returns at the end of the seven year Tribulation and establishes His 1,000 year reign on the earth (see Rev. 19:11-21; 20:1-6). At that time, “the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David; and He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and His kingdom will have no end” (Luke 1:32-33). Until God the Father brings these prophecies to pass, He will continue to accomplish His purposes on the earth through His Church.
