When the “great trumpet” sounds,
big events occur.
A little talked-about one is:
Israel is brought back to the Promised Land
to model God’s way to the Gentiles (Isa. 27:13).
The seventh trumpet sounds the end of Jew hating. And despising Big and Little Satans.
The first time the word “Jew” appears in the King James Bible, they are at war with Israel (2 Kings 16:6)! How can the Jews be at war with Israel?
The surprising answer is that there are 12 tribes of Israel, and Judah (Jews)—the modern nation of Israel in the Middle East—is just one of those tribes. Ten of those tribes have been dubbed “the Lost Tribes of Israel” and it’s exciting to learn where they’re hiding.
Joseph, the Jewish first century historian, and James (1:1) knew who they were. God has “sifted” the House of Israel through the nations, like corn through a sieve, and not a grain has been lost (Amos 9:9).
You can learn the amazing truth about where they are today by googling “United States and Britain in Bible Prophecy.” It will open your eyes to why nations have the relationships they do. This knowledge is absolutely crucial to understanding prophecy and we need to thoroughly study and prove it in our own Bible. In addition to the Bible showing where Israel is, historians like Steven Collins [“Lost” Ten Tribes of Israel … Found] have meticulously tracked the tribes’ journeys and settlings.
Ezekiel gave the sign of the two sticks of Israel and Judah being joined into one stick, gathered “from among the nations, wherever they have gone … Then they shall be My people, and I will be their God. David My servant shall be king over them …” (Ezek. 37:15-24).
Exodus? What Exodus?
The sad news is that Israel will be gathered from dire straits, slavery and captivity (Psa. 126, Amos 9:14). Jeremiah says “from the north country and from all the countries where I have driven them” (Jer. 23:6-8). This will be a second exodus on such a grand scale that it will make the first one forgotten. “They shall no longer say, ‘As the Lord lives who brought up the children of Israel from the land of Egypt.’”
God says “You shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols” (Ezek. 36:24-25). From all the sins and abominations that provoked God to send them into captivity! Ezekiel specifies that God considered Israel’s two biggest sins to be idolatry and breaking His Sabbaths and Holy Days (Ezek. 20). We can reason that we are “resting in Christ” when really we are
the truth! An idol is anything put before God in time, energy, thought or money. Can any of us say we are never guilty of this—except after God’s grace of forgiveness and living in us through Holy Spirit power to change?
At last Israel will be the example to the Gentiles that God always gave them a special calling to be. God said He didn’t single them out because they were better than anybody else. They were His chosen people because of the obedience of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Deut. 7:6-8).
They were supposed to keep God’s way so that people would see their example and say “And what great nation is there that has such statutes and righteous judgments as are in all this law which I set before you this day?” (Deut. 4:6-8).
Jeremiah prophesies that Israel will do just that in the Millennium: “Then it shall be to Me a name of joy, a praise, and an honor before all nations of the earth, who shall hear all the good that I do to them; they shall fear and tremble for all the goodness and all the prosperity that I provide for it” (Jer. 33:9).
Anti-semitism will at last be eradicated from the hearts of men! “In those days ten men from every language of the nations shall grasp the sleeve of a Jewish man, saying, ‘Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you’” (Zech. 8:23).
One by one
God uses the example of one individual at a time, even as events are moving forward on a national scale. It’s interesting that Isa. 27:12 specifies that the Israelites will be “gathered up one by one” (New International Version).
Building a personal relationship has always been God’s motus apperandi. People will really be one-on-one with their God as to whether they survive the time of Jacob’s trouble (Jer. 30:7). Today God is the Master Timer at when to call somebody (John 6:44) so that they will be most likely to make it into His Family. Jesus is the Great Shepherd Who knows His sheep by name (John 10:14).
Pray that you can serve in the Millennium in the God Family governing the earth and help Israel set the example for the Gentiles around the earth being restored.
