Some 70,000 people from 95 different countries immigrated to Israel in 2022, the most olim (immigrants on aliyah to Isreal) in 23 years and a dramatic increase from 2021, when about 28,600 immigrants arrived in the country.
“Therefore, behold, the days are coming, declares the Lord, when they shall no longer say, ‘As the Lord lives who brought up the people of Israel out of the land of Egypt,’ but ‘As the Lord lives who brought up and led the offspring of the house of Israel out of the north country and out of all the countries where he had driven them.’ Then they shall dwell in their own land.” Jeremiah 23:7
We live in an age when God is fulfilling many prophecies regarding the Jews. What a testimony this is to the fact that God is alive and well, that God is on his throne and in control, and that God is faithful to his promises! This regathering of the Jews was foretold in Bible prophecy. The Old Testament prophets promised repeatedly that the day would come when God would regather the Jews to the land of Israel. This remarkable regathering of the Jews from the four corners of the Earth has occurred in our lifetime and it is the most significant end-times prophecy given by Jesus prior to His return.
As revealed in MILLENNIAL KINGDOM – PURPOSE on my new website http://www.millennialkingdom.net, one of the main reasons for the Millennium age is the fulfillment of the covenants and promises God made to Abraham.
“I swear by myself, declares the Lord, that…through your offspring all nations on earth will be blessed.” Genesis 22:16-18
The Covenant of Abraham is yet to be fulfilled in its entirety and is still an alive and active promise, underpinning God’s relationship with the entire world.
The nature of the Abrahamic Covenant is strikingly unconditional as recorded in the ceremony of Genesis 15:7–12 and 15:17–18:
“I am the Lord who brought you out from Ur of the Chaldeans to give you this land to possess.” But he said, “O Lord God, how am I to know that I shall possess it?” He said to him, “Bring me a heifer three years old, a female goat three years old, a ram three years old, a turtledove, and a young pigeon.” And he brought him all these, cut them in half, and laid each half over against the other. But he did not cut the birds in half. And when birds of prey came down on the carcasses, Abram drove them away.
As the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell on Abram. And behold, dreadful and great darkness fell upon him… When the sun had gone down and it was dark, behold, a smoking fire pot and a flaming torch passed between these pieces. On that day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, “To your offspring I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates, the land of the Kenites, the Kenizzites, the Kadmonites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Rephaim, the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Girgashites and the Jebusites.”
With the serious nature of a blood covenant in mind, it becomes even more remarkable to see that it is the LORD alone who moved between the rows of animal halves. The smoking furnace and flaming torch describe how he appeared. Because the LORD completed the ceremony without Abram, God must honour his commitments. Nothing that Abram and his descendants did or will do can change that. Also, the Bible is very clear that the Promised Land is on earth and its borders are well-defined. The land promise in the Abrahamic Covenant has never been completed. It will be by Jesus’ Millennial reign on this earth with the resurrected Saints.
