Can a Nation be Born in a Day?

Happy 71st Birthday, Israel!

“But wait,” you say! “Didn’t we just celebrate that?” Indeed, we did! Yom Ha’Atzmaut…Israel’s Independence Day…was celebrated May 8-9 in Israel because they observe a lunar calendar as opposed to our Gregorian calendar! Yet, by our calendar, we know Israel was re-born and became a nation again on May 14, 1948.

But, did you know Israel was born in a single day? Indeed, once the British pulled out of the land, Israel was forced to declare statehood and fend off 5 Arab nations to establish their homeland. That one-day miracle was prophesied by the prophet Isaiah:

“Who has ever seen anything as strange as this?
    Who ever heard of such a thing?
Has a nation ever been born in a single day?
    Has a country ever come forth in a mere moment?
But by the time Jerusalem’s birth pains begin,
    her children will be born.
Would I ever bring this nation to the point of birth
    and then not deliver it?” asks the Lord.
“No! I would never keep this nation from being born,”
    says your God.

~Isaiah 66:8-9

Indeed, we rejoice…

“Rejoice with Jerusalem!
    Be glad with her, all you who love her
    and all you who mourn for her.”

~Isaiah 66:10

Happy Birthday, Israel!
