The Third Sign of the Apocalypse

3. The Rebirth of Israel

    • Hagee reminds his readers of May 15, 1948, when the United Nations announced their recognition of the state of Israel. Hagee describes Israel as the fig tree described in Matthew; he claims that when Israel is a young tree, it will be reborn and growing, but, "as soon as its branch becomes tender and starts putting forth its leaves", the end times are at hand (see Matt. 24:32-34).
    • The fact that Israel was made a nation in one day is proof, according to Hagee, that this is a fulfillment of biblical scripture: "who has heard of such things... shall a land be born in one day... shall a nation be delivered in one moment... yet as soon as Zion was in labor she delivered her children" (Isa. 66: 8-10).
