XX.7. When Will There Be Peace in Israel? Part 6

God's Promises To Israel Fulfilled

Israel's restoration.  Immediately following the Rapture begins the 7-Year Tribulation upon the Earth. This includes Jews and Gentiles. Isaiah, prophesied of Israel that only one out of 10 Jews will survive in Isaiah 6:11,13,

 “Then said I (Isaiah), Lord, how long? And he answered, Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate, (11) ...But yet in it shall be a tenth, and it shall return (to Palestine) and shall be eaten; as a teil tree, and as an oak, whose substance is in them, when they cast their leaves, so the holy seed (Jews that are saved) shall be the substance thereof (13).”

Zechariah 13:8,9 lets us know that only one-third in Palestine will survive.

"And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. (8)  And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.  - Zechariah 13:8-9

Little did the Jews know, when they told Pilate (referring to Christ), “His blood be on us and on our children.” (Matthew 27:25) It has been—for over 2,000 years. The great Diaspora began when Titus, the Roman general, besieged Jerusalem in 70 A.D.; and the Jews were scattered throughout the world. The great historian, Josephus, tells us that over 1,000,000 Jews were killed in this siege alone.

Then, is there any hope for Israel in the future. The answer is “Yes.” After the 7 years of tribulation on the Earth, Christ returns to establish His kingdom and fulfill His promises to Israel. Ezekiel speaks of this is Chapter 36:24,26-28.

 “For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land... (24) A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you:... (26) and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments and do them... (27) And ye shall dwell in the land (Palestine, approximately 255,000 square miles), that I gave to your fathers (28).”

This fulfills Genesis 15:18-21 and 17:7,8.

When Christ returns to establish His kingdom, then and only then, will Israel inherit ALL of her land, along with the peace, protection and prosperity that God has promised her.

"And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God." -  Genesis 17:8
