JESUS WILL RULE THE NATIONS FROM ISRAEL

My holy name I will make known in the midst of My people Israel; and I will not let My holy name be profaned anymore. And the nations will know that I am the LORD, the Holy One of Israel. Behold, it is coming and it shall be done,” declares the LORD God. “That is the day of which I have spoken” (Ezekiel 39:8).

When will God not allow His holy name to be profaned any more in Israel? Only after Jesus returns. When will God set His “glory among the nations”? When He establishes His kingdom (Millennial Kingdom) on this earth. When will the entire house of Israel come to know the Lord and experience a great outpouring of His Spirit? Only after the Second Coming of their Messiah.

What an amazing Scripture this is. God has unfinished business with Israel. The nation He established for His purposes. All the nations will know God is the Holy One of Israel. “Behold it is coming and it shall be done.”

And I will set My glory among the nations; and all the nations will see My judgement which I have executed and My hand which I have laid on them. And the house of Israel will know that I am the LORD their God from that day onward” (Ezekiel 39:21).

It is amazing the detail God revealed to Ezekiel about what He will do with Israel in the last days.

I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land: And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all. Ezekiel 37:21-22

Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore. My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people. And the heathen shall know that I the Lord do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.Ezekiel 37:26-28

Look at this scripture which says unbelievers will learn why God has dealt harshly with Israel

And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore hid I my face from them, and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell they all by the sword.Ezekiel 39:23

And finally God explains He will pour out His Spirit upon the House of Israel when He has gathered them out from their enemies lands then Israel and the nations will know God is the Lord God of Israel.

When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies’ lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations; Then shall they know that I am the Lord their God, which caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there. Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, says the Lord God.Ezekiel 39:27-29

In this post we have looked at what God revealed to Ezekiel. He revealed just as much if not more to Isaiah. It just confirms what was said to Ezekiel and the other prophets. Next post we will look at what Moses revealed to the nation about its future even before they went into the promised land.

Blessed and holy is the one who shares in the first resurrection! Over such the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and they will reign with him for a thousand years.” Revelation 20:6

GOD’S COVENANT WITH HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE

NEW JERUSALEM DESCENDING TO THE NEW EARTH

Much of the church appears to be asleep and biblically uninformed when it comes to Israel. The vast majority of Christians in America and around the world have no idea of the importance of their Jewish heritage and why Jews are the key in fulfilling God’s end time plans for the church and Israel.

“‘But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days,’ says the Lord: ‘I will put My law within them and write it in their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people'” Jer. 31:33.

This was an eternal covenant He made with the Jewish people. “God is not a man that He should lie” (Num. 23:19), then why have so many in the church adopted the false teaching that they have replaced the Jews as the “chosen people” Deut. 7:6.

From Genesis to Revelation, the Lord mentions Israel far more than any other nation in His Word, yet somehow this has become a big “mystery ” to His church.

Imagine the impact, if the church truly grasped God’s heart for Israel, whom He calls “the apple of His eye”? We could see a revival like never before!  Talk about a true awakening!

Now more than ever, Israel needs more than just strong allies defending her, she need true friends, like the global church, who will unwavering, stand with her. It is of course great to see America renew its ties with Israel under Trump.

God promises are clear in Genesis 12:3 on standing with Israel. “I will bless them who bless you and curse him who curses you.”
