One such prophecy is the Allied Invasion of Israel by the Germans, Muslim nations all led by the Russians. These nations have all in one form or another implemented focused severe persecutions of the nation of Israel. As we will see in examining this prophecy in detail that God uses these events to repay those nations for causing harm to the Jews, which He refers to as the â€śApple of His Eyeâ€ť (Zechariah 2:8). To God alone belongs vengeance and no body can repay the way He can (Romans 12:19; Deuteronomy 32:35). In fact the Lord arranged the nations around the plan He has for the Jews (Deuteronomy 32:7-9).
