9. Describe the "Times of the Gentiles"

     The period during which God carried out a program with those who are not Israelites is known as the "Times of the Gentiles."  Christ described its starting and ending point: LUKE 21:24 "And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled."

     When were the Jews led captive into all nations?  The latest date was A.D.70 by the Romans. However, the earliest date might be Babylon's Nebuchadnezzar who captured Jerusalem about 600 B.C.  And ever since, Jerusalem had been under Gentile dominion...until 1967.

     In 1967, Jerusalem reverted back into Jewish hands.  However, we know from Daniel 9:27 that Jerusalem would fall back into Antichrist' hands at the middle of the Tribulation, thus under Gentile control again.  And Christ would finally end gentile control with the institution of the Millennial Kingdom.

     Thus, it was necessary that the Jews have temporary control before Antichrist takes it away from them.  Jerusalem is now in Jewish hands!
