God Will Bring Israel To Repentance

of the Lord are right, and the just shall walk in them;..."(Hosea 14:9).
Israel and Reliance on World Powers

they are many; and in horsemen, because they are very strong; but they look not to the Holy One of Israel, neither seek the
Yet he also is wise, and will bring evil, and will not call back his words, but will arise against the house of the evildoers,
and against the help of those who work iniquity" (Isa.31:1-2).

"11 For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them
12 As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered;
so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark
13 And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring
them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country.
14 I will feed them in a good pasture, and upon the high mountains of Israel shall their
fold be: there shall they lie in a good fold, and in a fat pasture shall they feed upon the mountains of Israel.
15 I will feed my flock, and I will cause them to lie down, saith the Lord GOD.
16 I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind
up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick: but I will destroy the fat and the strong; I will feed
them with judgment."
"20 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD unto them; Behold, I, even I, will judge between the fat
cattle and between the lean cattle.
21 Because ye have thrust with side and with shoulder, and pushed all the diseased with your
horns, till ye have scattered them abroad;
22 Therefore will I save my flock, and they shall no more be a prey; and I will judge between
cattle and cattle.
23 And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant David; he
shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd.
24 And I the LORD will be their God, and my servant David a prince among them; I the LORD have
25 And I will make with them a covenant of peace, and will cause the evil beasts to cease out
of the land: and they shall dwell safely in the wilderness, and sleep in the woods."
"28 And they shall no more be a prey to the heathen, neither shall the beast of the land
devour them; but they shall dwell safely, and none shall make them afraid."
Israel, the nation, in unbelief, is in a portion of the land promised it's forefather's. It rejects the gospel. It
is not the land God promised. Nor according to His plan GOD WILL DELIVER
A NATION BORN IN A DAY (Isaiah 66:8, 15-16)
One day a remnant of believing Jews from the world over will occupy all the land promised in the Palestinian Covenant.
After the terrible time of Jacobs Trouble. After the great tribulation. After The Lord delivers them from all their enemies...when
they believe that Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior. When King David is raised from the dead. After the latter rains. Then Israel
will be the worlds capital and Jesus will rule the kings of the earth and David will assist Him.(Jer.31:27-37;
32:37-40; 50:4; Joel 2:28-32; 3:1; Isa.11:10-12; Ezek.37:21-28; Acts 15:18).
"I will ransom you from the power of the grave; I will redeem you from death..."(Hosea
Matthew 24:7-22--Jesus said concerning the tribulation and the activities of the Antichrist (against other nations
in wars and Israel in great persecutions destroying 2/3rds of its population! See Zech.13:8), "Nation shall rise against nation,
and kingdom against kingdom; and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in various places. All these are
the beginning of sorrows. . . . When ye, therefore, shall see the abomination of desolation, (Antichrist seeking worship as
God in the rebuilt Jewish Temple in Jerusalem) spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place (whosoever readeth,
let him understand) , then let them who are in Judea flee into the mountains; let him who is on the housetop not come down
to take anything out of his house; neither let him who is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto those
who are with child, and to those who nurse children in those days! But pray that your flight be not in the winter, neither
on the sabbath day; for then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no,
nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved. " Jesus warning reiterated the
revelation Daniel heard: there would be a future time at the conclusion of man's day of rule of unprecedented trouble for
God's people Israel (Dan.11:35).
Revelation 6-18--The book of Revelation describes the incredible final events of human history. Chapters 6-18 present
the details of Daniel's seventieth week (Dan. 9:24-27) --the Tribulation. The apostle John saw in a vision several terrifying
elements belonging to that period: war (6:3-4) , famine (6:5-6) , the death of 25 percent of the world's population (6:7-8)
, the collapse of the heavenly bodies (6:12-14) , the destruction of one-third of land and sea--together with what they contained--(8:7-9)
, the pollution of one-third of earth's fresh water and the death of those who drink from it (8:10-11) , the destruction of
one-third of the sun, moon, and stars (8:12) , the release of hell's demons to overrun the earth (9:1-11) , the slaughter
initiated by the beast and his false prophet during their vile administration (13:7, 15) , the affliction of painful body
sores (16:2) , the death of all remaining creatures in the sea (16:3) , further pollution of fresh water (16:4) , scorching
sunlight (16:9) , and darkness (16:10). More demons and judgments of wrath will afflict the living until Christ's return as
described in Revelation 19. In addition God will allow the Antichrist to oppress Israel in a final act of purging. The tribulation
will be an incredible time of suffering when God's judgments occur simultaneously with Satan's persecutions in historical
apex of misery. It will be especially difficult for the people of Israel.
Jeremiah 30:4-7--"These are the words that the Lord spoke concerning Israel and concerning Judah. For thus saith the
Lord, We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace. Ask now, and see whether a man doth travail with child?
Why do I see every man with his hands on his loins, like a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness? Alas!
for that day is great, so that none is like it; it is even the time of Jacob's trouble. " During the tribulation mankind will
experience agony like the excruciating pain of childbirth.
Zechariah 13:8-9--"It shall come to pass that in all the land, saith the Lord, two parts in it shall be cut off and
die; but the third shall be left in it. And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is
refined, and will test them as gold is tested; 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. " During the tribulation two-thirds of the Jewish people will die, but the other third
will be redeemed. Israel's rebelliousness will be purged away and they will believe in Christ.
Israel's future contains a time of distress without a historical equal. It's known as the time of Jacob's trouble,
the seventieth week of Daniel, or the Great Tribulation. Yet during that time Israel will receive unique assistance.
"There appeared a great wonder in heaven--a woman [Israel] clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and
upon her head a crown of twelve stars" (Rev. 12:1). That pictures the twelve tribes of Israel in prophetic imagery. "She,
being with child, cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. . . . And she brought forth a male child, who was
to rule all nations with a rod of iron; and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne" (vv. 2-5). That describes
the birth of Christ (the Messiah) and His ascension into heaven. Then "the woman fled into the wilderness" (v. 6). Israel
fled because "there appeared another wonder in heaven; and, behold, a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns,
and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven and did cast them to the earth; and
the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to be delivered, to devour her child as soon as it was born" (vv. 3-4). Satan
is described as a dragon that embodies all Gentile governments in the final form of the Roman Empire. When he rebelled against
God he apparently took one-third of the angels with him--they became demons. Although his force is not as large as God's,
it's not numbers that count, but power.
Righteous power always overcomes evil power. Satan unsuccessfully tried
to prevent the birth of the Messiah. After the child was born he worked through Herod in an attempt to "devour" that child.
Throughout Jesus' life Satan tried to kill Him. When Christ ascended to God's throne Satan attacked Christ's followers. During
the tribulation Satan, the demons, and the beast (the Antichrist) will attack Israel again. But Israel will flee "into the
wilderness, where she hath a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore
days" (v. 6).
During the tribulation's second three-and-a-half years God will protect Israel by the power of MichaelThe
Archangel who has the special assignment from God to protect Israel from total destruction. The demons will desire to overrun
the earth and destroy Israel, but Michael and the holy angels will war against them in heaven: "There was war in heaven; Michael
and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon fought and his angels, and prevailed not, neither was their place
found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil and Satan, who deceiveth the
whole world; he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him" (vv. 7-9). I believe the demons will lose
some of their supernatural power at that point: "I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength,
and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ; for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, who accused them before
our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved
not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth
and of the sea! For the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time"
Satan's plan to ruin Israel will be thwarted. In the short time that he has left he will apparently overrun
the earth with evil. But he will be unsuccessful in his attempt to destroy Israel because he will have already lost the battle:
"When the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman [Israel] who brought forth the male child. And
to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished
for a time, and times, and half a time [three-and-a-half years], from the face of the serpent. And the serpent cast out of
his mouth water like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. And the earth helped
the woman, and the earth opened her mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth" (vv. 13-16).
The opening of the earth may be a repeat of what happened to Korah, Dathan, and Abiram in the Old Testament (Num. 16:31-33).
In this case it will be the beast and all his army who will be swallowed up.
Satan will then intensify his efforts
to destroy the Jewish remnant: "The dragon was angry with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, who
keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ" (v. 17). Though persecution will continue after Satan's
defeat by Michael, the turning point toward victory for Israel will be Michael's victory over the devil. That's because Satan
will then no longer be "the prince of the power of the air" (Eph. 2:2) after he is cast to the earth. Though the major battle
will be won, he will continue to seek Israel's destruction for a short time. But Michael, their special defender, will protect
them for the second half of the tribulation. It is significant that the angelic messenger in Daniel 10 revealed Michael's
power over Satan and his responsibility to protect Israel. That gave Daniel confidence--he knew Michael would be present at
the time of Israel's greatest need.
Jer.33:8 "And I will cleanse them from all their iniquity, whereby they have sinned
against me; and I will pardon all their iniquities, whereby they have sinned, and whereby they have transgressed against me."
"And it shall be to me a name of joy, a praise and an honour before all the nations of the earth, which shall hear all the
good that I do unto them: and they shall fear and tremble for all the goodness and for all the prosperity that I procure unto
"At that time thy people shall be delivered. " Romans 11:26 declares, "All Israel shall be saved; as it is written,
There shall come out of Zion the Deliverer" (cf. Isa. 59:20). "Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it, it is
even the time of Jacob's trouble, but he shall be saved out of it. . . . For I am with thee, saith the Lord, to save thee.
. . . For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds" (Jer. 30:7-17). At the time Israel is delivered
they will also be redeemed.
What part of Israel will be saved? In the end times apostates and rebels will be purged
out of Israel. Only those remaining will be protected. Zechariah 13:8 says two-thirds of Israel will die. The one-third left
constitutes the godly remnant to whom the promise of redemption belongs. The end of Daniel 12:1 verifies that fact: the delivered
are "every one that shall be found written in the book. " The promise of deliverance and salvation is for those who believe.
book of Revelation explains how the remnant of Israel will come to believe in Jesus Christ--the one Judaism has so long rejected.
to Revelation 11 God will set apart two witnesses with miraculous powers. They are described as two olive branches in verse
4. After the Antichrist kills them their bodies will be viewed worldwide--perhaps by use of satellite television (v. 9). They
will be murdered because of the prophetic message they will preach. The world will rejoice at their death. But after three-and-a-half
days they will rise from the dead. I imagine their message will become more convincing at that point!
and 14 reveal that 144 thousand Jewish people will be sealed and protected by God to serve as evangelists during the tribulation:
twelve thousand from each of Israel's tribes. Their ministry will be essentially the same as that of the two witnesses: leading
Jewish people to faith in their Messiah. Those who believe will in turn reach others--even in the midst of that holocaust!
In that way a living remnant will be preserved as a redeemed nation. God assured Israel through Jeremiah, "I am with thee;
for I will make a full end of all the nations to which I have driven thee; but I will not make a full end of thee" (46:28).
deliverance of Israel will involve the personal salvation of individuals, it will occur on a scale large enough to be termed
a national deliverance. The remnant of believing Jews during the tribulation constitute the "all Israel" of Romans 11:26.
Thus Israel's hope is that someday its purging will end, the nation will be saved, and the long-awaited messianic Kingdom
will be established from those alive of the 144,000 Jewish saints and those old testament saints raised from the dead according
to God's promises.
The resurrection has been the hope of God's people from the beginning. The angel's message to Daniel
was that there is good reason for hope: Israel will be saved and the resurrection will indeed occur.
Daniel 12 and Revelation
20 speak of two aspects to the resurrection: one is to "everlasting life" while the other is to "shame and everlasting contempt.
" Both the positive and negative parts to the resurrection involve the resurrection of the body.
The resurrection to
everlasting life is a resurrection of the just (Acts 24:15). John 5:29 calls it "the resurrection of life," while Hebrews
11:35 terms it "a better resurrection. " It's the resurrection of all glorified saints: all believers from the Old and New
Testament eras, as well as from the tribulation period, will enjoy everlasting life.
The Tribulation will occur after
the church is removed from the earth--the church wasn't in Israel's first sixty-nine weeks, and it isn't going to be in its
seventieth week (cf. Dan. 9:24-27). During that period of seven years God will deal exclusively with Israel. At the end of
that time of purging the third and final part of the first resurrection will take place: the raising of the Old Testament
and tribulation saints (cf. Dan. 12:13; Rev. 6:9-11). It will include Gentiles who were saved and martyred during the tribulation
In Revelation 20:4 the apostle John gives a description of the first resurrection: "I saw thrones,
and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them; and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of
Jesus, and for the word of God, and who had not worshiped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon
their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. " That verse implies a resurrection.
In his vision John saw the thousand-year millennium kingdom, where the saints of all the ages will be alive and reigning with
Christ. Verses 5-6 say, "But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first
resurrection [prior to the thousand years]. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection. "
second resurrection has just one part. It will happen at the end of the millennium when God raises the bodies of the unjust
from the dead. Revelation 20:7 provides the time frame: "When the thousand years are ended. " Verses 11-15 provide some of
its details: "I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it. . . . And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before
God, and the books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life. And the dead were judged out of those
things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death
and hades delivered up the dead that were in them; and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and
hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was
cast into the lake of fire. " Special Thanks to John MacArthur for his wonderful bible study and teachings.
A NATION BORN IN A DAY
"7 Before she travailed,
she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child.
8 Who hath heard such a
thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for
as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.
9 Shall I bring to the
birth, and not cause to bring forth? saith the LORD: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut the womb? saith thy God.
10 Rejoice ye with Jerusalem,
and be glad with her, all ye that love her: rejoice for joy with her, all ye that mourn for her:"
"18 For I know their works
and their thoughts: it shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see my glory.

24 And they shall go forth,
and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their
fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh."
" 9 Then said he unto me,
Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath,
and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.
10 So I prophesied as
he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.
11 Then he said unto me,
Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are
cut off for our parts.
12 Therefore prophesy
and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of
your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel."
"21 And say unto them,
Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, 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:
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."
"24 And David my servant shall be king over them;
and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them."
"28 And the heathen shall
know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore."

"And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from doing them
good, but I will put my fear in their hearts, that they shall not depart from me."(Jer.32:40;
See also 50:5: Isa.61:8: Heb.8:8).
"The LORD said unto my Lord, sit on my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool" (Ps.110:1).
King David wrote this psalm. He was a man of faith. Remember the 23rd Psalm where he wrote "The Lord
is my shepherd, I shall not want...". Who is David talking about? Who is his Lord in the 110th
Psalm? This much is clear, that David is saying he has a Lord who is God, who leads him , an eternal priest,
who has ascended to be with GOD until His enemies become His footstool. David looks forward to a time when He will appear
as the Deliverer out of Zion, after the conversion of the remnant of Israel and their deliverance from all their enemies...
when David will be raised from the dead by Messiah. "And I will dwell in the house of the Lord
forever"(Ps.23:6).See also (JOEL 2:27; Zech.13:9; Dt.30:1-9).
WHICH ONE OF YOU HAS READ ISAIAH CHAPTER 53?
THERE IS NO REMISSION OF SIN WITHOUT THE SHEDDING OF BLOOD BY SACRIFICE (Ex.12:13; 29:16; 30:10;see Hebrews
I am a child of Abraham by blood, by faith, and by Christ's Spirit and member of a tribe I know not which. God loved
and knew me from before I entered my mothers womb. I am blessed to be one of the elect of Israel in my generation. I have
paid a heavy price for my faith which is nothing compared to the blessings of salvation thru God's grace in Jesus Christ.
When God called Abraham as the father of Judaism it was because He knew that he would be faithful to the promises
that God made. The most important was his faith to believe the promise that God would send His Messiah to deliver the Jews
from the curse of sin and from death itself. This promise could only be accepted by faith. And Abraham was a man of faith.
So there are two aspects to being a Jew;
(A) born of Abraham's line thru Isaac,
(B) AND faithful to the promise of a savior born thru that line, of the tribe of Judah, sent by God to deliver the people
from their sins and penalty, eternal separation from God in the lake of fire.
That promise was fulfilled when Christ was born of a virgin, died for our sins and rose from the dead on the third
day never to die again. This I believe. And the empty cross signifies His death, resurrection, and the doorway to eternal
life thru Him. This is the Jew that I am.
"For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God
- Not of works, lest any man should boast"(Eph.2:8-9).
According to scripture no one has perfect works.
Jews do wear the cross and formed the very church Christ loves.
The Jew didn't reject Jesus, it was the nation of Israel that did.
But in each generation, a remnant of Jews believe in Him.
Indulge in bible study, starting with the Old Testament, and answer this question:
what's wrong with Jesus and eternal life through Him?
