The regathering of the Jewish
people is an event that was prophesied many times in the Scriptures. It is
hard to fathom that what we are seeing now was actually predicted thousands
of years before it happened.
"'The days are coming' says YHVH 'that they will no more
say, "as YHVH lives who brought up the children of Israel from the land of
Egypt," but rather "as YHVH lives who brought up the seed of the house of
Israel from the land of the North and from all the lands to which I
dispersed them and brought them that they would dwell on their
land"'" (Jeremiah 23:7-8).
This is a huge statement. We are experiencing something greater than what
the people experienced who left Egypt with Moses. This is a miracle of
The fact that this has come to pass is proof that the Bible is true.
Naturally speaking it is impossible. No other people has been dispersed
for 2,000 years and then regathered. It could not be predicted or fulfilled
without supernatural intervention. It is proof of the divine origin of the
If this great historical promise has come true, how much more will the
personal promises of Scriptures for our own lives also come to pass. We
glean much personal encouragement for Bible promises in our own lives, as
we look at the miracle of modern Israel.
The dispersion and regathering of Israel also has an amazing symbolic
parallel to the death and resurrection of Yeshua. What happens to
Israel's king happens to Israel. Yeshua was killed by the Romans, and
His soul left His body for two days. In parallel, the people of Israel were
exiled out of their land for two thousand years. As Yeshua returned into
His body after two days and was resurrected, so Israel has returned to
their land to be restored after two millennia. The restoration of Israel
is a parallel miracle to the resurrection of Yeshua.
Why has all this happened? What is the purpose? Biblical prophecy describes
another period of time yet to come. It is the Messianic or Millennial
Kingdom upon the earth. It is the ultimate fullness of both the
international Church and the nation of Israel.
There will be peace and prosperity, justice and righteousness, for all
nations. The capital of the kingdom will be Jerusalem. For the worldwide
kingdom to be established, the nation of Israel must be restored first. The
restoration of Israel is part of the preparation for the coming Messianic
We rejoice to see all these meanings during this 70th anniversary of the
modern State of Israel:
Miracle of biblical proportions
Proof that the Bible is true
Personal encouragement regarding biblical promises
Parallel miracle to the resurrection of Yeshua
Preparation for the coming Messianic kingdom
Let's rejoice together in the wonderful things God is doing in our
to support the vision of Revive Israel.

accomplish that for which it was sent and bear fruit. We thank
and praise God for the Aliyah.
