Does the Modern State of Israel Fulfill Bible Prophecy

Recently an offshoot group distributed some of their literature in our church parking lot titled “Signs of the Time [sic] SDA Camp Meeting Appeal” which included these two statements (page 8)- “The Lord declares that the above prophetic statements are not conditional on ancient Israel’s faithfulness as some teach” and “The peaceful restoration of Jerusalem is a prophecy that is very, very soon to be fulfilled.”

But what does the Bible really teach?

For those who would like to study this subject in more detail, here are some carefully researched Bible perspectives and Ellen White insights compiled by the Adventist Biblical Research Institute
