Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sent a Christmastime message to believers around the globe that prophesies from Scripture are coming true today as he shared his gratitude to Christians for their loyalty to Israel in the End Times.
"We're united in a shared destiny,” Netanyahu expressed to Christians in a pre-recorded video message, according to CBN News. “I want to thank you for all your support."

Netanyahu impressed the fact that prophesies declared in the Bible are unfolding at a record rate in the Holy Land.
“The Israeli leader went on to point out that believers are living in a time when biblical prophecies are unfolding at lightning speed,” CBN News noted from the PM’s address to Christians.
After being dispersed throughout the world for two millennia, Jews are continuing to return to Israel – a process that began in 1948 when the State of Israel was reestablished – while archeological discoveries, the rebuilding of the Temple Mount and other indications show that the End Times, as prophesied in the Bible, are already upon us.
"We live in historic times,” Netanyahu impressed in the video. “The ancient prophecies are being realized. The people of Israel have ingathered their exiles, come back to the Promised Land, built Zion, reunited our eternal capital, Jerusalem."
He could not help but express his gratitude to President Donald Trump fom moving the United States Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to the nation’s official capital in Jerusalem.
"And in fact, the American Embassy was just recently moved there in a historic move by President Trump," Netanyahu added. "This is all important. What we're witnessing is the dream of centuries, the dreams of millennium being realized. And we're doing it with your tremendous support."
The importance of the shared religious heritage of Christians and Jews in Israel was then stressed.
"Only in Israel has Christianity blossomed in the Middle East," Netanyahu pointed out. "We understand our heritage, we understand our common heritage and we understand our commitment to a common future. We're united in a shared destiny."
He made it a point that having Christians on Israel’s side during this historically significant time is priceless.
"I know what tremendous friends you are, and I want to wish you a Merry Christmas from the Holy Land," Netanyahu expressed.
The Israeli PM also took to social media to reinforce his critical alliance with Christians on a global scale.
He went on to list off crucial historical events from the Bible that took place in Israel’s Holy City.
“In Jerusalem, Abraham passed the greatest test of faith and the right to be the father of our nation,” Netanyahu continued. “In Jerusalem, King David established our capital 3,000 years ago. In Jerusalem, King Solomon built our Temple, which stood for many centuries. In Jerusalem, Jewish exiles from Babylon rebuilt the Temple, which stood for many more centuries. In Jerusalem, the Maccabees rededicated that Temple and restored Jewish sovereignty in this land.”
The Israeli leader then impressed Israel’s significance today in the fulfillment of Scripture.
“And it was here in Jerusalem some 2,000 years later that the soldiers of Israel spoke three immortal words, ‘Har ha’bayit be’yadeinu,’ – ‘The Temple Mount is in our hands’ – words that lifted the spirit of the entire nation,” Netanyahu pointed out.
An Old Testament prophet’s words were then repeated by the PM.
“The prophet, Zechariah, declared over 2,500 years ago, ‘So said the Lord, ‘I will return to Zion and I will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. And Jerusalem shall be called the City of Truth,’” Netanyahu continued in his speech. “May the opening of this embassy in this city spread the truth far and wide, and may the truth advance a lasting peace between Israel and all our neighbors.”
He ended by blessing America and giving thanks to God for His continued protection of Israel today and through eternity.
