Topic: The Restoration Of Israel
Beloved, it was predicted in Scripture that one sign of the end time is the restoration of the nation of Israel and their language. This has been fulfilled which means we are already in the end time.
SCRIPTURE: Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the coasts of the earth, and with them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and her that travaileth with child together: a great company shall return thither. Jeremiah 31:8.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Ensure that you are ready for the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
In Scripture, we understand that one sign of the end time is the restoration of Israel as a nation.
Our Lord Jesus Christ, in Matthew 24:32, says, Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
Bible theologians identified the “fig tree” in Matthew 24:32 as Israel. When you see the Israelites who were scattered all over the world coming together to their homeland in Israel, it means the end is near.
Israel, as a nation was scattered all over the earth for almost two thousand years but they came together, and on the 14th of May, 1948, became a nation despite the intense hostility of neighbouring countries.
It is very important to know that the Jews are returning to their homeland now in fulfilment of God’s promise for the restoration of Israel in Jeremiah 31:8.
This year (about two months ago), I spoke with the president of the International Christian Embassy, Jerusalem (ICEJ). He sent me a picture of a pregnant woman, her husband and two children returning to their nation of Israel from Europe. He said that the return of that woman with her child fulfilled what God said in Jeremiah 31:8. He also said that hundreds of Jews are returning to their homeland this year, 2020 even in the midst of the Corona Virus pandemic. They are also expecting about seventy other Ethiopian Jews to return to Israel. Those, he said, were the company of Jews, of the tribe of Dan, believed to have left with the Queen of Sheba when she visited Solomon, according to history.
Somewhere in North Eastern India, they also identified some members of the lost tribe of Manasseh who are making their way to their homeland.
Now, the miracle did not just stop with the restoration of Israel; it continued with the restoration of their language. In the course of their dispersion to different parts of the world, the Hebrew language disappeared. Everywhere they went, the Jews spoke the language of the people of those places. But God promised to restore their language (Zephaniah 3:9).
The miracle is, not only did the people return, their pure ancient original Hebrew language also returned. This is one of the greatest miracles of their return. It is difficult for a language that has disappeared for even five years to be recovered. There were languages that have disappeared never to be found again. But the Hebrew language disappeared for almost two thousand years and was recovered.
Beloved, it was predicted in Scripture that one sign of the end time is the restoration of the nation of Israel and their language. This has been fulfilled which means we are already in the end time. So, expect the blast of the trumpet any moment. Ensure that you are ready for the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Remember this: Ensure that you are ready for the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Ensure you are ready for the second coming of Jesus Christ.
Refuse to be entangled by the godlessness of this end time.
Be watchful, be vigilant and be prayerful always.
PRAYER: O Lord, thank You for drawing my consciousness to the signs of the end time. I receive the grace to be watchful, vigilant and prayerful so as not to be taken unawares by the rapture, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
