Can one truly argue that there exists compelling evidence of God’s existence in this world?
Ollie Anisfeld from J-TV argues – yes.
The first argument in this video is that it is due to the fact that the Jewish people still exist after thousands of years of dispersion into exiles into Africa, Europe, Asia, North America, South America, and Australia.
The real truth is that there is no logical reason that the Jewish people would continue on and on for generations without being geographically located in the Land of Israel or one common area.
However, what has truly kept the Jewish people connected is the eternal longing to return to the State of Israel and adherence to the Bible’s commandments coupled with the longing to live an idyllic life in God’s Chosen Land.
So, global exile – which usually would dictate the disappearance of a people, actually has led to the eternity of the Jewish people – due to common values and longings to return to our land.
Ollie interestingly ascribes anti-semitism as being one of the main causes that has kept the Jewish people somewhat unified.
This is a fascinating idea.
One would assume that this would usually convince more and more Jews to disassociate themselves from the Jewish people, but the reverse has actually happened.
Anti-Semites have actually made it harder to assimilate.
So, instead of Jews feeling comfortable anywhere in exile, within a generation or two or three, they will usually be kicked out or killed or something else horrible from their host country – all of which make sure that the Jewish people don’t lose their connection with their homeland.
I would argue that the most powerful of all proofs is alluded to but not clearly stated in this video – that is – the fulfillment of the prophecies of the ingathering of the exiles that has clearly been occurring over the last 2-3 generations.
There is simply no other historical phenomenon that matches this unbelievable story.
2-3 million Jews have been gathered from all of the ends of the Earth – into the Land of Israel – surrounded by hostile enemies – exactly as it has been stated in the books of the Prophets – following thousands of years of exile from their Land.
There is simply no other story that comes close to it. No mortal being could accomplish this feat.
