Israel not forgotten

Israel not forgotten

Israel remains the beloved of The Beloved of the Lord. Although Israel was abandoned for a while as punishment for their sins and to give the gentiles a chance to know God, Israel is no forgotten.  By the time the Messiah Jesus Christ came, Israel were acting as it was prophesied, many could not understand their time of visitation but those who did were harvested as the first fruits to the Lord from Israel. The prophecies that affected them then, have not yet been fulfilled to completion. As we near the end of this age, these prophesies will be fulfilled and thus Israel will receive their full redemption and be restored in the 1000 year period.

The fulfillment of the prophesies about Israel will start by the revelation of the nation that will make Israel envious. This is the nation that was prophesied through Moses and the nation that worshiped God before God took on flesh to come die for mankind. The Revelation of Zion (East Africa) as sons of God and it’s restoration to the Garden of Eden will be a sign to all men so as to gather the full number of the gentile saints into the fold, and a sign to Israel that, the new covenant promised by God in the Book of Jeremiah, came with Jesus Christ. Through Faith we are made righteous, the righteousness that is a gift and not a result of our works. Obedience to the commands of God is a sign of our faith in God and not a means to attain righteousness.

Why was Israel abandoned until the appointed time?

Israel was chosen to serve the Living God. Although The Living God did a lot of miracles to redeem them from Egypt and on their way to the promise land, Israel did not truly trust and believe in the Living God. instead they continued with idol worship and angered The Lord Who had been a Father to them, as it is written:

Deuteronomy 32: They made him jealous with their foreign gods
and angered him with their detestable idols.
17 They sacrificed to false gods, which are not God— gods they had not known,
gods that recently appeared, gods your ancestors did not fear.
18 You deserted the Rock, who fathered you; you forgot the God who gave you birth. 19 The Lord saw this and rejected them because he was angered by his sons and daughters.
21 They made me jealous by what is no god
and angered me with their worthless idols.
I will make them envious by those who are not a people;
I will make them angry by a nation that has no understanding.

Psalms 78
17 
But they continued to sin against him, rebelling in the wilderness against the Most High.18 They willfully put God to the test by demanding the food they craved.
19 They spoke against God;  they said, “Can God really  spread a table in the wilderness?

21 When the Lord heard them, he was furious; his fire broke out against Jacob,
and his wrath rose against Israel, 22 for they did not believe in God or trust in his deliverance. 32 In spite of all this, they kept on sinning; in spite of his wonders, they did not believe.

36But then they would flatter him with their mouths, lying to him with their tongues;
37 their hearts were not loyal to him,  they were not faithful to his covenant.
38 Yet he was merciful; he forgave their iniquities and did not destroy them. Time after time he restrained his anger and did not stir up his full wrath.  39 He remembered that they were but flesh, a passing breeze that does not return. 40 How often they rebelled against him in the wilderness and grieved him in the wasteland!
41 Again and again they put God to the test;  they vexed the Holy One of Israel.
42 They did not remember his power— the day he redeemed them from the oppressor,

56 But they put God to the test and rebelled against the Most High;
they did not keep his statutes57 Like their ancestors they were disloyal and faithless,
as unreliable as a faulty bow. 58 They angered him with their high places;
they aroused his jealousy with their idols. 59 When God heard them, he was furious;
he rejected Israel completely. 60 He abandoned the tabernacle of Shiloh, the tent he had set up among humans. 61 He sent the ark of his might into captivity, his splendor into the hands of the enemy. 62 He gave his people over to the sword;  he was furious with his inheritance.

Then the Lord said; Isaiah 29 13 The Lord says:“These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips,
but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me
is based on merely human rules they have been taught.
14 Therefore once more I will astound these people with wonder upon wonder;
the wisdom of the wise will perish, the intelligence of the intelligent will vanish.”

Isaiah 28 And these also stagger from wine and reel from beer:
Priests and prophets stagger from beer and are befuddled with wine;
they reel from beer, they stagger when seeing visions,
they stumble when rendering decisions.
All the tables are covered with vomit and there is not a spot without filth.

“Who is it he is trying to teach? To whom is he explaining his message?
To children weaned from their milk, to those just taken from the breast?
10 For it is: Do this, do that,
a rule for this, a rule for that;
a little here, a little there.

 11 Very well then, with foreign lips and strange tongues God will speak to this people, 12 to whom he said, “This is the resting place, let the weary rest”;
and, “This is the place of repose”  but they would not listen.
13 So then, the word of the Lord to them will become:
Do this, do that, a rule for this, a rule for that; a little here, a little there—
so that as they go they will fall backward; they will be injured and snared and captured.

Isaiah 6:9-11He said, “Go and tell this people: “‘Be ever hearing, but never understanding; be ever seeing, but never perceiving.’
10 Make the heart of this people calloused; make their ears dull and close their eyes.
Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears,
understand with their hearts and turn and be healed.”

Deuteronomy 32 19 The Lord saw this and rejected them because he was angered by his sons and daughters. 21 They made me jealous by what is no god
and angered me with their worthless idols.
I will make them envious by those who are not a people;
I will make them angry by a nation that has no understanding.

Psalms 78 67 Then he rejected the tents of Joseph, he did not choose the tribe of Ephraim; 68 but he chose the tribe of Judah,  Mount Zion, which he loved.

 

And so, God chose Zion and abandoned Israel was until the appointed time as God had spoken through the prophets saying;
 Hosea 3 For the Israelites will live many days without king or prince, without sacrifice or sacred stones, without ephod or household gods. Afterward the Israelites will return and seek the Lord their God and David their king. They will come trembling to the Lord and to his blessings in the last days.
Micah 5:3 3Therefore Israel will be abandoned  until the time when she who is in labor bears a son, and the rest of his  brothers return to join the Israelites
Paul confirms this in Romans 11 25 I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers and sisters, so that you may not be conceited: Israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles has come in,26 and in this way all Israel will be saved. As it is written:

“The deliverer will come from Zion;
he will turn godlessness away from Jacob.
27 And this is my covenant with them
when I take away their sins.”

11 Again I ask: Did they stumble so as to fall beyond recovery? Not at all! Rather, because of their transgression, salvation has come to the Gentiles to make Israel envious.
Therefore, Israel is not forgotten but was only abandoned for a short while to give gentile believers opportunity to be part of God’s family. The Lord swore, Israel is not forgotten!

Jeremiah 31  35 This is what the Lord says, he who appoints the sun  to shine by day, who decrees the moon and stars to shine by night, who stirs up the sea  so that its waves roar—the Lord Almighty is his name:

36 “Only if these decrees vanish from my sight,” declares the Lord,
“will Israel ever cease  being a nation before me.”

37 This is what the Lord says: “Only if the heavens above can be measured and the foundations of the earth below be searched out will I reject all the descendants of Israel because of all they have done,”declares the Lord.

Jeremiah 33 25 This is what the Lord says: ‘If I have not made my covenant with day and night and established the laws of heaven and earth, 26 then I will reject the descendants of Jacob and David my servant and will not choose one of his sons to rule over the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. For I will restore their fortunes and have compassion on them.’”

When Will Israel redemption come

Isaiah asked the Lord, how long Israel would remain abandoned, blinded and deaf to the messages of salvation sent to them. In Isaiah 6, the Lord answered,

Isaiah 6 11 Then I said, “For how long, Lord?”  And he answered: “Until the cities lie ruined and without inhabitant, until the houses are left deserted and the fields ruined and ravaged, 12 until the Lord has sent everyone far away and the land is utterly forsaken.
In Daniel 9, Prophecy is more specific on the time of Israels’s redemption. 70 ‘sevens’ stand for 70 weeks.At the end of this age unless specified, time is taken literary unlike in past prophecies where time was given as per God’s times with a 1000 years representing a day.

Daniel 9 24 “Seventy ‘sevens’ are decreed for your people and your holy city to finish transgression, to put an end to sin, to atone for wickedness, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the Most Holy Place.

As written in Daniel 9:24, seventy weeks are decreed for the people of Israel to finish transgression, put an end to sin, atone for wickedness and to bring in Everlasting Righteousness. To finish transgression and put an end to sin, atone for wickedness means to turn away from their sinful ways and repent of all their sins. To bring in Everlasting Righteousness simply means to accept Jesus Christ Who is the Everlasting Righteousness. Christ is the righteousness of the believer, as written:

1 Corinthians 1:30 30  …Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption.

Israel’s eyes and ears will be opened in the 70th week after the decree to rebuild Jerusalem. In the 70th week, the anti-Christ armies will match into Jerusalem destroying the city as it is written;
Daniel 925 “Know and understand this: From the time the word goes out to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One, the ruler, comes, there will be seven ‘sevens,’ and sixty-two ‘sevens.’ It will be rebuilt with streets and a trench, but in times of trouble. 26 After the sixty-two ‘sevens,’ the Anointed One will be put to death and will have nothing. The people of the ruler who will come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end will come like a flood: War will continue until the end, and desolations have been decreed.
7 weeks plus 62 weeks make 69 weeks. After the 69 week, that is, in the 70th week, the people of the ruler (anti-Christ) will destroy the city of Jerusalem and the sanctuary.At that time, the prophecy of Isaiah 6 will be fulfilled as it was said;
Isaiah 6 11 Then I said, “For how long, Lord?”  And he answered: “Until the cities lie ruined and without inhabitant, until the houses are left deserted and the fields ruined and ravaged, 12 until the Lord has sent everyone far away and the land is utterly forsaken.
The 70 week decree to rebuild Jerusalem will be given just before the world peace  treaty is signed. The peace treaty will last for a year before its broken by the anti-Christ. In the 70th week after the decree to rebuild Jerusalem, just over a year after the peace treaty agreement is signed, the city of Jerusalem will be besieged by the northern armies and destroyed as written;
 Daniel 9  25 “Know and understand this: From the time the word goes out to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One, the ruler, comes, there will be seven ‘sevens,’ and sixty-two ‘sevens.’ It will be rebuilt with streets and a trench, but in times of trouble. 26 After the sixty-two ‘sevens,’ the Anointed One will be put to death and will have nothing. The people of the ruler who will come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end will come like a flood: War will continue until the end, and desolations have been decreed
 Apart from the 70 weeks decree and the signing of the peace treaty, another sign Israel should look out for is the birth of the Child of Revelation 12.  The birth of the anointed child prophesied in Revelation 12  will mark the fullness of the gentiles, a sign that the time of wrath that brings the time of lamentation is near. Have faith and carriage, after the persecution by the anti-Christ’s government, Israel’s full redemption will come. 
Micah 5:3 3Therefore Israel will be abandoned  until the time when she who is in labor bears a son, and the rest of his  brothers return to join the Israelites
The full number of the gentiles will be an event understood by all as all the saints will be called back to Zion (East Africa) at a time when a 5 months martial law will be enforced asking all people to go back to their native land.  At that time, the armies of the anti-Christ will torture all those returning to their nations except those with the Mark of the Living God, that is the saints. After the child of Revelation 12 is born, and when the saints gather in Zion marking the fullness of the gentiles, all that will be left will be the invasion  by the Assyrian or northern armies headed by the anti-Christ and destroyer. It is important for Israel and Zion to keep watch, as soon as the decree to rebuild Jerusalem goes forth, then know that only 69 weeks are left before the great persecution. Scripture warns Israel and Zion not to rejoice when the peace treaty is signed because it will surely not last. The peace treaty is purposed to be the means through which the anti-Christ and the ten leaders rise to power.  
The church’s divine mission is to make sure Israel understands the time and the knowledge of salvation before the 2nd seal is re-unsealed allowing the anti-Christ to take peace from the earth as it was written;
Psalms 14 Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion!
    When the Lord restores his people,  let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad!
Although many in Israel will accept the message of salvation some will remain until the anti-Christ armies match into Jerusalem destroying the city,then the eyes and ears of Israel will be opened. Israel will lament for Jesus Christ as one laments for an only son and will accept the Message of Salvation through grace. This will lead to the unity of Israel and the people of Zion as was prophesied;
John 10 14 “I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me— 15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep. 16 I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd.
Jeremiah 50 3A nation from the north will attack her and lay waste her land. No one will live in it; both people and animals will flee away. “In those days, at that time,” declares the Lord, “the people of Israel and the people of Judah together will go in tears to seek the Lord their God. They will ask the way to Zion and turn their faces toward it.They will come and bind themselves to the Lord in an everlasting covenant that will not be forgotten.
Jeremiah 31 For the Lord will deliver Jacob and redeem them from the hand of those stronger than they. 12 They will come and shout for joy on the heights of Zion;  they will rejoice in the bounty of the Lord; the grain, the new wine and the olive oil, the young of the flocks and herds. They will be like a well-watered garden, and they will sorrow no more. 13 Then young women will dance and be glad, young men and old as well. I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.

Therefore, Israel is not forgotten, they were abandoned to give the gentiles a chance to be part of the Riches of God through Jesus Christ. Mount Zion  represents the gentile church and a nation that was chosen to be the dwelling place of the Name of God Jesus Christ where those who have been redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ will be called to when the full number of the gentiles is sealed at the end of this age.
The Lord has given clear signs that will indicate the end of this age. Israel and Zion must watch very keenly for these signs as they mark their final redemption. At the first seal, the nation that was spoken through Moses, Mount Zion that will make Israel envious will be revealed. The revealing of Mount Zion will lead to freedom for creation and thus the nation or physical place of Mount Zion will be turned into the garden of Eden. Then the world wide peace will follow and with it the decree to rebuild Jerusalem. After the decree to rebuild Jerusalem goes out, there will be 69 weeks, at the signing of the world peace agreement there will be only a year before the time of the great persecution that leads to lamentation and the great tribulation.
Although a time of persecution is coming, Israel and Zion should take courage and trust in the love of the Living God. Its through the great persecution that the gentile saints are harvested, and its during the time of lamentation that the nation of Israel accept Jesus Christ and the unity of Israel and the church is reached. It’s at the end of the time of wrath that Jesus Christ comes to fight the anti-Christ and the false prophet at the War of Armageddon to give the saints the Everlasting Victory and to Israel, Everlasting Restoration.
Trust in God and in Jesus Christ and you shall be saved; as it is written;
John 17  Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent 
John 3 16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
Jesus said; John 6  39 And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all those he has given me, but raise them up at the last day.
He prayed for the saints: John 17I pray for them. I am not praying for the world, but for those you have given me, for they are yours. 10 All I have is yours, and all you have is mine. And glory has come to me through them. 11 I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name, the name you gave me, so that they may be one as we are one. 12 While I was with them, I protected them and kept them safe by that name you gave me. None has been lost except the one doomed to destruction so that Scripture would be fulfilled.
Romans 8 31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? 33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies.34 Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? ” 36 As it is written:

“For your sake we face death all day long;
    we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.

37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of Godthat is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
