Did the Bible Predict that Jews today would be called Israel?

IsraelOne of the cornerstone teachings of the modern evangelical teachings concerns the existence of the modern Jewish state of Israel. These biblical scholars propound the idea that the emergence of the state of Israel after 2,000 years of dispersement is proof of biblical prophecy coming true in our lifetime. Although they are right in their assertion, they have misread just what the Bible predicted because they simply do not know who the ancients nations are today. The fact that these scholars and most everyone else is ignorant of the fact that Israel is not, and has never been the Jews! The Jews, as we call them today, get there name from the son of Jacob named Judah. When Jacob's sons became 12 nations, Judah was one of those twelve nations. The fact is that Jews are Israelites, but the majority of Israelites are not Jews! (Read our article on who Israel is. The truth will shock you.)


The Bible always refers to the Northern Kingdom of the so-called “lost 10 tribes” as Israel, and the southern nation of Judah, the Jews. In fact, the very first time the word Jew is used in the KJV Bible, they (the Jews) are at war with the nation of Israel! Now if that doesn't open your mind to The Plain Truth about who Israel and the Jews are, maybe this next line will help you understand better.

This is from Isaiah 48:

1 Listen to this, descendants of Jacob! You who took the name of Israel. You are descended from Judah. You take oaths by the name of the LORD. You acknowledge the God of Israel, but you are not honest or sincere.

Here is conclusive proof that in the end times, the nation of Judah (the Jewish people) would be calling themselves ISRAEL, a name that does not belong to them. They are Judah, one tribe of the House of Israel. However, the name “ISRAEL” belongs soley to the tribe of JOSEPH! The modern nation of Israel

2 You call yourselves{citizens} of the holy city. You depend on the God of Israel- the LORD (Yahweh-or Jesus Christ) of angels is HIS name.

3 Time and again I warned you about what was going to happen in the future. Then suddenly I took action, and all my predictions came true. 4 I know that you are stubborn. Like iron, you are hardheaded. Like bronze, nothing gets through your thick skull. 5 That is why I told you ahead of time what I was going to do. That way, you could never say, 'My idols did it. My wooden image and metal idol commanded it to happen!' 6 You have heard my predictions and seen them fulfilled, but you refuse to admit it. Now I will tell you new things I have not mentioned before, secrets you have not yet heard. 7 They are brand new, not things from the past. So you cannot say, 'We knew that all the time!' 8 Yes, I will tell you of things that are entirely new, for I know so well what traitors you are. You have been rebels from your earliest childhood, rotten to the core. 9 Yet for my own sake, for the honor of my name, I will hold back my anger and not wipe you out. 10 I have refined you, but not like silver. I have tested you in the furnace of suffering.

The words in the Bible are clear. During the end times, the tribe of Judah (the Jews), one of 12 descendants of Jacob, would form a nation and call themselves 'Israel.' This has happened, but unlike what Bible scholars want you to believe, God is not happy with this deception! Israel is a name the belongs to the tribe of Joseph, and Joseph alone!
