Isaiah not only saw Israel returning to the land, he PROPHESIED that their agricultural blessings would also be a blessing to the world:
“He shall cause them that come of Jacob to take root: Israel shall blossom and bud, and fill the face of the world with fruit.” (Isaiah 27:6)
Today Israel is an exporter of all types of food, and the nation produces 95% of its country’s own food requirements. There are over 725 agricultural communities that have been developed from swamp and desert regions.Years ago a satellite picture identified a large underground water source in the rift that runs south from the Sea of Galilee and ends at the northern part of the Dead Sea. Israelis began drilling and discovered a huge lake of underground water! Using this water source, the agriculturists began to install water pumps and drip irrigation pipes throughout the desert. Today, tens of thousands of acres of farms stretching from the Sea of Galilee all the way down to the Dead Sea.
South of the Dead Sea, there are now over 54 farms spread throughout the desert, and they produce tomatoes, peppers, melons, and many other foods.These crops yield over 10 times the production output per acre of America. Even the cows in this region give more milk, up to 4,000 gallons a year compared to the average American cow that gives 2,500 gallons a year. This is an area, that for 5,800 years, was a barren wasteland, and the land which the prophet saw blooming.
This miracle is considered a sign of both God’s FAVOR and His FAITHFULNESS. Every promise GOD has given… He WILL Fulfill.
