When the apostles asked the Lord on the Mount of Olives immediately prior to the ascension, when the kingdom would be returned to Israel; they were asked when would Israel dominate the world as she did as a theocracy in the days of Moses and David and Solomon.
"LORD, WILL YOU AT THIS TIME RESTORE AGAIN THE KINGDOM TO ISRAEL?" Acts 1:6
He answered: 'IT IS NOT FOR YOU TO KNOW THE TIMES OR THE SEASONS, WHICH THE FATHER HAS PUT IN HIS OWN POWER." Acts 1:7
In other words, the Lord did not deny the Kingdom would again be restored to Israel. He did say it was not for them to know the timing of it.
To understand the meaning of the verse, it is important to understand the word "Kingdom." A Kingdom is a monarchy. Israel of old was a theocractic monarchy ruled by prophets like Moses and Samuel. Israel was without a king until they provoked God by demanding one.
To understand what all Israel was looking for their Messiah to do, it is important to understand how Israel dominated the Middle East when their Kingdom was ruled invisibly by God their King through his prophets. And when Israel backslid, they were brought into subjection as we see in the book of Judges for having dethroned their unseeable King.
The dynasty of David was established once God removed Saul from the throne. It is on the throne of David that he who was before David will sit as one of his descendents in the flesh. Christ is a Son of David.
God chose David because he was a man after God's own heart. The fact David is a Prophet is a little known fact. His written prophecies are so subtle they hardly appear as prophecies to the unskilled eye. God established his throne in Israel through David and promised in THE COVENANT OF PEACE to establish David on his throne to rule over Israel throughout the Millenium Age when Christ established his worldwide Kingdom.
God's people pray "THY KINGDOM COME" often times without knowing what they are praying for. When Christ returns to conquer the earth in the battle of Armageddon and establish his thousand year reign, he will establish a global government which will not be a democracy. It will be a global Kingdom ruled by the King of kings. "THY KINGDOM COME" is a petition God's people have been making throughout the centuries in the hope of something better than the oppressive governments of man. Their hope will not be disappointed.
The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob who sent his Son Christ to save Gentiles as well as his orginally chosen people, the Israelites; will "RESTORE THE KINGDOM TO ISRAEL." Israel will rule in the chain of command with Christ as King of kings over all the world, David as King over Israel, the Israelites with its holy Apostles and Prophets will become the Queen of the nations as the wife of God again.
The Israelites who were dispersed into all the world by Roman Co-Emperor Titus in AD 72 have been despised for so many centuries, a dogma has become lodged in Protestant and Catholic churches disenfranchising the Jews from the promises of God and few believers have escaped its pollutions.
It would be difficult to put a name to the anti-Jewish dogma found in the doctrines of the churches, in religious media, and in religious book stores. It comes in so many different forms.
It can be seen in the claim that the Gentile Church will be the Bride of Christ. Yet in another chapter of this Millenium Age series, an attempt will be made to prove the 144,000 who have not been defiled by woman will become the Bride of Christ, and indeed; they are seen on Mount Zion (the location of the temple to which the Lord returns "suddenly") right at the beginning of the thousand year reign.
"AND I LOOKED AND LO, A LAMB STOOD ON THE MOUNT ZION, AND WITH HIM A HUNDRED FORTY AND FOUR THOUSAND, HAVING HIS FATHER'S NAME WRITTEN IN THEIR FOREHEADS. AND I HEARD A VOICE FROM HEAVEN, AS THE VOICE OF MANY WATERS, AND AS THE VOICE OF A GREAT THUNDER: AND I HEARD THE VOICE OF HARPERS HARPING WITH THEIR HARPS: AND THEY SUNG AS IT WERE A NEW SONG BEFORE THE THRONE, AND BEFORE THE FOUR BEASTS AND THE ELDERS: AND NO MAN COULD LEARN THAT SONG BUT THE HUNDRED AND FORTY AND FOUR THOUSAND WHICH WERE REDEEMED FROM THE EARTH. THESE ARE THEY WHICH WERE NOT DEFILED WITH WOMEN; FOR THEY ARE VIRGINS. THESE ARE THEY WHICH FOLLOW THE LAMB WHITERSOEVER HE GOES. THESE WERE REDEEMED FROM AMONG MEN, BEING THE FIRST FRUITS UNTO GOD AND TO THE LAMB. AND IN THEIR MOUTH WAS FOUND NO GUILE: FOR THEY ARE WITHOUT FAULT BEFORE THE THRONE OF GOD." Revelation 14:1/4
There is no Scripture showing the Gentile church standing next to the Lord on Mount Zion at the time when he establishes his global government. Can you imagine a better candidate for the bride of Christ? Undefiled. Virgin. Found without fault before the throne of God. Following the Lord "whithersoever he goes."
Yet stedfast anti-Israel dogma's such as the supposed Gentile bride of Christ will persist among Gentile believers until the Lord establishes his worldwide theocracy. Then it will no longer be kosher to form doctrines against the royal house of Israel.
To make this study of the Kingdom being restored to Israel to rule the resurrected nations, the following Scriptures have been provided for your consideration, but logic alone should be sufficient to convince you, for what nation in all history has provided the world with Christ, the Apostles and the Prophets we read of in holy Scripture. All of the great men of the Gentile nations put together cannot compare to them, and where will we find "THE CHIEF CORNERSTONE" which is Christ? 1 Peter 2:6 Shall we find him in Washington D.C. or in Moscow? We will find him in Jerusalem. Jerusalem is the capital of Israel:
"BUT YOU ARE A CHOSEN GENERATION, A ROYAL PRIESTHOOD, A HOLY NATION, A PECULIAR PEOPLE; THAT YOU SHOULD SHOW FORTH THE PRAISES OF HIM WHO HAS CALLED YOU OUT OF DARKNESS INTO HIS MARVEOUS LIGHT:" (1 Peter 2:9)
We can know for certain Peter is addressing scattered Israelites (V1:1) when we read 1 Peter 2: 12 where he says: "HAVING YOUR CONVERSATION HONEST AMONG THE GENTILES: THAT, WHEREAS THEY SPEAK AGAINST YOU AS EVILDOERS, THEY MAY BY YOUR GOOD WORKS WHICH THEY SHALL BE HOLD, GLORIFY GOD IN THE DAY OF VISITATION." We are left with the obvious conclusion the epistle is not addressed to Gentiles, though we can benefit from the Apostle's good counsel, particularly if we understand what is being said.
Peter is addressing the issue of anti-Jewish sentiment existent in the first century. Israelites have always been called EVILDOERS by the nations of their exile. They are a strangely peculiar people. What people do not understand, they persecute. Anti-Jewish dogma's in the Gentile churches of the world ought not to surprise you. Men form doctrines convenient to what they naturally believe, rather than honestly seeking a growing body of revelations necessary to understanding the whole truth.
The idea Gentiles are " A ROYAL PRIESTHOOD," had no problem catching on, since Saint Peter seems to address Gentiles in his first epistle; and the notion sounds so good to Gentile ears, they have no reason to oppose it, and not being well read in the Scriptures they have no reason to believe otherwise.
Yet it is Israel who will reign as royalty in the Millenium Age and the Gentile nations will "LICK THE DUST AT THEIR FEET."
God speaks of Israel as his people through the Prophet Isaiah whose prophecy pertains to the return of Christ, saying: "COMFORT YE, COMFORT YE MY PEOPLE, SAITH YOUR GOD. SPEAK COMFORTABLY TO JERUSALEM, AND CRY UNTO HER, THAT HER WARFARE IS ACCOMPLISHED, THAT HER INIQUITY IS PARDONED: FOR SHE HAS RECEIVED OF THE LORD'S HAND DOUBLE FOR ALL HER SINS." (Isaiah 40:1) Read on through the chapter and you will find Isaiah saying: "AND THE GLORY OF HE LORD SHALL BE REVEALED, AND ALL FLESH SHALL SEE IT TOGETHER:" (V5) And, "BEHOLD, THE LORD GOD WILL COME WITH STRONG HAND, AND HIS ARM SHALL RULE FOR HIM: BEHOLD, HIS REWARD IS WITH HIM, AND HIS WORK BEFORE HIM." (V9)
When Christ does return to set up his Millenium kingdom, the Israelites in Jerusalem will be justifyably frightened. The Messiah they rejected returns in great power, splitting the Mount of Olives when his feet touch down and they shall flee from the city. "COMFORT YE, COMFORT YE MY PEOPLE, SAITH YOUR GOD," is a message to all of the resurrected in the day of the LORD God's perfect will. Israel is his people. He has not abandoned them. And "ALL ISRAEL SHALL BE SAVED" on that great and glorious day.
Christ will also hiss to all the world as a signal for his people, the remnant of Israel to make ALIYAH. The Israelites are to return immediately to the land of Israel and the Lord will make a way for them miraculously. (This complex subject of Millenium prophecy is also addressed in the chapter entitled THE FINAL EXODUS.)
After the Lord gathers his people Israel and purifies them as REFINER'S FIRE in Judgment to bring them into obedience to him, he presents Israel to the resurrected Gentile nations as his people, "AND THE VAIL (VEIL) THAT IS SPREAD OVER ALL NATIONS" (Isaiah 25:7) will begin to fall off of their eyes, for the Gentile nations will begin to understand there are TWO SHEEPFOLDS, Israel and themselves; and Israel was prepared long ago to serve God as a ROYAL PRIESTHOOD. But the Gentile nations are of THE COMMON FAITH. (Titus 1:4) God planted all of the great prophets and apostles in Israel and Moses tells us the Gentile nations will look upon Israel and say: "SURELY THIS GREAT NATION IS A WISE AND UNDERSTANDING PEOPLE. FOR WHAT NATION IS THERE SO GREAT, WHO HAS GOD SO NIGH (NEAR) UNTO THEM, AS THE LORD OUR GOD IS IN ALL THINGS THAT WE CALL UPON HIM FOR? AND WHAT NATION IS THERE SO GREAT, THAT HAS STATUTES AND JUDGMENTS SO RIGHTEOUS AS ALL THIS LAW, WHICH I (MOSES) SET BEFORE YOU THIS DAY?" (Deuteronomy 4:7/8)
So the prophecy Moses spoke to Israel in the desert was written down and is contained in
the Bible to this day so those who want to understand the future might endeaver to do so.
There is a continuing wisdom in the way the Lord approaches his relationship with Israel. The whole world knows Christ has arrived from heaven as it were surrounded by clouds as the trumpet sounds and the Resurrection takes place supernaturally. The Lord wins the battle of Armageddon without a casualty and proceeds to burn the evil works of mankind throughout the earth in THE HOUR OF WRATH. This is a very uncomfortable situation for anyone not caught up into the sky, especially when you consider how Jews and Gentiles worldwide have opposed the Lord of glory.
The Lord sets down on the Mount of Olives, causing a tremendous earthquake and fearfulness among the Jewish inhabitants of Jerusalem who flee to the mountains. "TOUCH THE MOUNTAINS AND THEY SHALL SMOKE." (Psalms 144:5) The Mount of Olives is where the Lord ascended into heaven. It is also where he sets down in the sight of Jerusalem. The Jewish sinners who inhabit Jerusalem in that day will assume they are about to be cast into hell. They had the faith to believe in hell, but gave little or no attention to avoiding it.
The Lord and his Saints return with them, but he will not enter Jerusalem. "HOW SHALL I GIVE THEE UP EPHRAIM? HOW SHALL I DELIVER THEE, ISRAEL? HOW SHALL I MAKE THEE AS ADMAH? HOW SHALL I SET THEE AS ZEBOIM? MINE HEART IS TURNED WITHIN ME, MY REPENTINGS ARE KINDLED TOGETHER. I WILL NOT EXECUTE THE FIERCENESS OF MINE ANGER, I WILL NOT RETURN TO DESTROY EPHRAIM: FOR I AM GOD, AND NOT MAN: THE HOLY ONE IN THE MIDST OF THEE: AND I WILL NOT ENTER INTO THE CITY." (Hosea 11:8/9)
The city of Jerusalem is defiled as we see in God's Word where it is referred to as "Sodom and Egypt" (Revelation 11:8). Israel was never intended to be a democracy with a temple to maintain continual sacrifices unto God. Even now at the time of this writing, every imagineable sin is manifest in Jerusalem and it promises to get worse as the world moves rapidly toward wicked practices.
The rejection of Jerusalem reveals displeasure on the part of the Conquering Messiah intended to humble Israel. Keep in mind, the Lord is dealing with holy generations from Israel's past as well as the wicked generation at the time of his coming. He proceeds to judge the Levites as a REFINER'S FIRE in The Judgment Seat of Christ. The Levites are the premier tribe in regard to Judaism, the system by which the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob taught the Israelites to minister to him continually. By refining the Levites with the Light of truth whereby God and Christ know everything about his people, the Lord is able to establish his authority with the Levites led by Moses and Aaron who will continue to perform their offices under the law during the thousand year reign.
The Lord designated the apostles to judge the more than twelve tribes, so the judging of the Levites does not put any of the apostles out of work in THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST. To understand their part, we need to realize THRONES ARE SET DOWN. "AND I SAW THRONES, AND THEY SAT UPON THEM, AND JUDGMENT WAS GIVEN UNTO THEM:" (Revelation 20:4) These are the twenty four thrones mentioned in Revelation 4:4.
The Spirit of the Lord in the Apostles will do his work and the twelve tribes of Israel will be judged in such a way as to adjust her attitude as a nation to the absolute authority of the Lord Jesus Christ (Jeshua Hamashiach). Israel will have her heart of stone replaced by a heart of flesh and the Spirit of God's glory will rest upon them. Now we come to the text of prophecy addressed to the Hebrew people where it is written:
'FOR BOTH HE THAT SANCTIFIES AND THEY WHO ARE SANCTIFIED ARE ALL OF ONE; FOR WHICH CAUSE HE IS NOT ASHAMED TO CALL THEM BREATHREN, SAYING, "I WILL DECLARE THY NAME UNTO MY BRETHREN, IN THE MIDST OF THE CHURCH WILL I SING PRAISE UNTO THEE. " (Hebrews 2:11) (Be careful to not become confused by the use of the word CHURCH. In the latter days, the word CHURCH has come to mean the building where people meet to worship God. In the Bible, the word CHURCH signifies the gathering of God's people. In gathering the Levites or Israel, the Lord is gathering the CHURCH.)
Here we gain an insight into what the Lord will say to Israel in that glorious day as he moves forward in establishing order to his global kingdom. It is not a well known fact that the name of God the Father is a State secret with Israel. By referring to the Israelites as his brethren, the Lord makes it clear to them they are kinfolk, and by telling them the secret name of God; Christ proves himself to be of God. (Remember, he has a credibility problem in Israel at this time that has existed since the first century. The Lord is considered an idol that Christians throughout the world worship. He is considered the instigator of division. His status is that of a cult leader to many Jews in the world. As such the memories of him were reduced to tourist attractions in Israel.)
To make his relationship all the more dramatic to the Israeli's who are great lovers of the arts and producers of great artists themselves, the Lord sings praise to God in the beauties of holiness to Israel. In doing so, he makes himself like them, a worshipper of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. "IN THE MIDST OF THE CHURCH WILL I SING PRAISE UNTO THEE." In this gathering with Israel, the Lord also confirms THE COVENANT OF PEACE with Israel. A very important move on his part to turn their hearts toward him.
The Lord also tells Israel "THE NATION AND KINGDOM THAT WILL NOT SERVE YOU SHALL PERISH." (Isaiah 60:12) Once the Lord makes this statement to Israel, it will be settled that the Kingdom has been returned to her. This was the question the apostles were asking on the Mount of Olives right before the Ascension when they asked him: "LORD WILL YOU AT THIS TIME RESTORE AGAIN THE KINGDOM TO ISRAEL?" (Acts 1:6) At that time, the Lord told them: "IT IS NOT FOR YOU TO KNOW THE TIMES OR THE SEASONS, WHICH THE FATHER HAS PUT IN HIS OWN POWER." (Acts 1:7)
The Lord goes on to tell the Israeli's "THE SONS OF THEM THAT AFFLICTED YOU SHALL COME BENDING UNTO YOU." (Isaiah 60:14) This is also important to the Jewish people who were kept in ghettos for so many centuries in their dispersion throughout the world, where they were afflicted by their tormentors. The sons of those tormentors who obtained salvation will go to Israel bending unto them. Jesus knows how to speak to the Jewish people.
We do not know all that will said to Israel on that day, but besides winning Israel to him; the Lord also makes sure the Israeli's do not become puffed up with pride over their wonderful success. He says to them: "I DO NOT THIS FOR YOUR SAKES O HOUSE OF ISRAEL, BUT FOR MY HOLY NAME'S SAKE WHICH YOU HAVE PROFANED AMONG THE HEATHEN WHITHER YOU WENT." (Isaiah 60:5)
It is right after this meeting, that Israel as a nation is presented to the Gentile nations by the Lord who says: "BEHOLD I AND THE CHILDREN WHICH GOD HAS GIVEN ME." (Hebrews 2:13) The sequence of these events in the prophecies is not easy to determine, but it is reasonable to expect at this presentation of Israel that the Jewish nation will worship the Lord before the nations. In this way, Israel will make it clear she is in submission to Christ and the Lord will manifest his glory upon the Israelites in such a wondrous way as to evidence their greatness as a nation.
In this regard, we are told by Isaiah the Prophet: 'I THE LORD LOVE JUDGMENT, I HATE ROBBERY FOR BURNT OFFERING; AND I WILL DIRECT THEIR WORK IN TRUTH, AND I WILL MAKE AN EVERLASTING COVENANT WITH THEM. AND THEIR SEED SHALL BE KNOWN AMONG THE GENTILES, AND THEIR OFFSPRING AMONG THE PEOPLE: ALL THAT SEE THEM SHALL ACKNOWLEDGE THEM, THAT THEY ARE THE SEED WHICH THE LORD HAS BLESSED. I WILL GREATLY REJOICE IN THE LORD, MY SOUL SHALL BE JOYFUL IN MY GOD: FOR HE HAS CLOTHED ME WITH THE GARMENTS OF SALVATION, HE HAS COVERED ME WITH THE ROBE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, AS A BRIDGEROOM DECKS HIMSELF WITH ORNAMENTS, AND AS A BRIDE ADORNS HERSELF WITH HER JEWELS. FOR AS THE EARTH BRINGS FORTH HER BUD, AND AS THE GARDEN CAUSES THE THINGS THAT ARE SOWN IN IT TO SPRING FORTH; SO THE LORD GOD WILL CAUSE RIGHTEOUSNESS AND PRAISE TO SPRING FORTH BEFORE ALL THE NATIONS. FOR ZION'S SAKE WILL I NOT HOLD MY PEACE, AND FOR JERUSALEM'S SAKE I WILL NOT REST, UNTIL THE RIGHTEOUSNESS THEREOF GO FORTH AS BRIGHTNESS, AND THE SALAVATION THEREOF AS A LAMP THAT BURNS. AND THE GENTILES SHALL SEE YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS AND ALL KINGS YOUR GLORY: AND YOU SHALL BE CALLED BY A NEW NAME, WHICH THE MOUTH OF THE LORD SHALL NAME. YOU SHALL ALSO BE A CROWN OF GLORY IN THE HAND OF THE LORD, AND A ROYAL DIADEM IN THE HAND OF YOUR GOD." (Isaiah 61:8/11 & Isaiah 62:1/3)
When Israel is presented before the nations, she will shine like "A WOMAN CLOTHED WITH THE SUN, AND THE MOON UNDER HER FEET, AND UPON HER HEAD A CROWN OF TWELVE STARS:" (Revelation 12:1) Israel is a great work of God in progress to this day. The Israelites have produced all of the great prophets, apostles and holy men and women we read about in the Bible. All of the Gentile nations together have not produced men and women of their stature. Israel shall shine gloriously before the nations. "RIGHTEOUSNESS AND PRAISE" shall spring forth from the Israelites "BEFORE ALL THE NATIONS."
Think about it. God dispersed the Jewish people into all the world many centuries ago where he prospered some of them to become incredibly wealthy. For every generation of Gentiles coming to judgment, there are Jews who lived among them who know their language and culture as well as they do. Israel is a nation God designed to rule from beginning to end. In those nations where the Jews were dispersed, many of them were oppressed, persecuted, killed and even driven into other lands. Why?
The Jews are a peculiar people who cling to their culture and religion, and though they cannot easily agree among themselves; they stick together like glue against foreigners. They are a tremendously energetic people. They love knowledge and are the counsellors on every subject in America. What they have done in a few decades in Israel in comparison to what the Arabs have done over the centuries, shines like light against darkness in the Middle East. What nation in all the world is able to inter-face with all of the nations of the world like Israel?
"YOU HAVE INCREASED THE NATION, O LORD, YOU HAVE INCREASED THE NATION;
YOU ARE GLORIFIED: YOU HAD REMOVED IT FAR UNTO ALL THE ENDS OF THE EARTH."
(Isaiah 26:15) The Prophet was not speaking as one who had seen all of the dispersions.
The word REMOVED speaks of Israel's dispersions. Isaiah was speaking as a Prophet.
Most people who are participants in the dispersion of a culture will say, they have been
decreased by it. The Prophet saw before the dispersions Israel would be increased by it.
BEHOLD I AND THE CHILDREN GOD HAS GIVEN ME." (Isaiah 41:27)
"YOUR SLAUGHTERS AND DISPERSIONS ARE ENDED." (Jeremiah 25:33)
Christ says to Israel. "YOU ARE MY PEOPLE." (Isaiah 51:16)
"THE PRINCES OF ISRAEL ARE "ALTOGETHER KINGS." (Isaiah 10:7/8) Their power in the Millenium Age reduces the power of the Kings of the Gentiles. Transfer this note to KINGS OF THE GENTILES.
When the relationship between Israel and the Lord of glory is secured, Israel "PRASES GOD BEFORE THE NATIONS." (Isaiah 61:11)
"ONE FOLD AND ONE SHEPHERD." (St. John 10:16)
"HE SHALL SUBDUE THE NATIONS UNDER OUR FEET." (Psalms 47:3)
"ALL THAT SEE THEM SHALL ACKNOWLEDGE THEM, THAT THEY ARE THE SEED WHICH THE LORD HAS BLESSED." (Israel 61:9)
'WHAT ADVANTAGE HAS THE JEW - MUCH IN EVERY WAY." (Romans 3:1)
Perish the thought that Israel would be forsaken. (Psalm 94:4/15)
When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the LORD thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice; For the LORD thy God is a merciful God; he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them. (Deuteronomy 4:30/31)
What the Replacement Theorists neglect is the eternal nature of the Word the Eternal God speaks through his Prophet Moses in instances as you see here where the LORD God already knows the beginning and the end of the matter, and is already fully aware Israel will experience Disaspora's and Slaughters, yet God spoke through the Prophet saying: "For you are an holy people unto the LORD thy God, and the LORD has chosen you to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth." (Deuteronomy 14:2)
Spirit poured out on Israel (Isaaiah 32:15/18)
Power to bring Gentile kings to Israel (Isaiah 60:11)
God "HAS NOT CAST AWAY HIS PEOPLE," (Romans 11:2) though it may have looked like it through the centuries.
God spoke through Moses the Prophet saying, Israel is "A PECULIAR TREASURE UNTO ME." (Exodus 19:1/6)
God spoke through Saint Paul saying, the oracles are committed to Jews. (Romans 3:2)
King David is very aggressive. You'll remember, he subdued the Middle East when he was King a long time ago. Israeli's presumably sent by him will "FLY UPON THE SHOULDERS OF THE PHILISTINES TOWARD THE WEST..." (Isaiah 11:14) "HOWL, O GATE; CRY, O CITY; YOU WHOLE PALESTINA, ARE DISSOLVED: FOR THERE SHALL COME FROM THE NORTH A SMOKE, AND NONE SHALL BE ALONE IN HIS APPOINTED TIMES." WHAT SHALL ONE THEN ANSWER THE MESSENGERS OF THE NATION? THAT THE LORD HAS FOUNDED ZION, AND THE POOR OF HIS PEOPLE SHALL TRUST IN IT." (Isaiah 14:29/31)
Israel has a forever memory. Ammonites and Moabites are not allowed to enter the congregation of Israel. (Deuteronomy 23:6) How they deal with their other neighbors will demonstrate it too. The Philistines will be sold to Judah who will sell them to the Sabeans which is probably Kuwait. In this way, Israel will have Gaza as a seaport during the Millenium Age as well as Tyre and Sidon who are also sold for their transgressions, and they shall have peace from the "OLD HATRED." (Ezekiel 25:15/35:5) When the Prophet says they will be DISSOLVED, he means it to be understood that in dispersing them, they shall no longer be encouraged nor permitted to function as a nation with an eternal chip on their shoulder. What all of the rulers and diplomats through the centuries have not been able to solve will be solved at the coming of the Lord.
"HE HAS REMEMBERED HIS MERCY AND HIS TRUTH TOWARD THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL." (Psalm 98:3)
Israel cries out to God. "WE KNOW YOU." (Hosea 8:2) Is it Christ or God in heaven they speak to? And is it not a corporate voice with which they speak? That would signify God moving in Israel for such a phenomenon to take place.
Look up Hebrews 2:9/13 a reference to THE NAME. Jesus introduces Israel as his children.
Israel paid 'DOUBLE FOR HER SINS" (Isaiah 39:1) so it is a waste of time for anyone to complain of her prized inheritance.
Isaiah 61:7 'For your shame you shall have double and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion. Therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them."
Romans 11:11 "I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy."
Romans 3:1 "What advantage has the Jew. Much in every way."
