Yet you shall be about to be hearing battles, and tidings of battles. See that you are not alarmed, for it must be occurring; but not as yet is the consummation (Matthew 24:6, Concordant Version).

This clearly implies a preceding time of sustained world peace, for otherwise battles and tidings of battles would become nothing new to serve as a sign of our Lord’s presence in advance of His ultimate revelation then impending.

The element of time which intervenes between the realization of our present hope and the beginning of Israel’s national restoration to divine favor is something Scripture nowhere reveals nor is it needful for us to know. It is our conviction that the deliverance we are awaiting must precede anything which signals the beginning of Israel’s renascence, but we are not told how much the one may precede the other.
