Jewish Life to be the Center

February 19, 2017

A great calamity will come upon the land and two-thirds of Israel’s people will be killed. The other third will be purified. The result of this national calamity will be that the purified will call upon the name of God, and they will be heard by Him. He will accept them and they will accept Jesus as their Messiah. This is why Jesus warned Israel to flee to the wilderness for protection during this time.

Notes and Outline

PROPHECIES IN THE MINOR PROPHETS

WHAT HAPPENS TO THE JEWS?

Israel is the unfaithful wife of the Lord (church is the Lamb’s wife, the harlot is Babylon) in historic times, who is to be restored in the millennium.
Is 54:1-10; Hos 2:1-17

Isa 26:19. In antithesis to Isa 26:14, "They (Israel's foes) shall not live"; "Thy (Jehovah's) dead men (the Jews) shall live," that is, primarily, be restored, spiritually (Isa 54:1-3), civilly and nationally (Isa 26:15); whereas Thy foes shall not; ultimately, and in the fullest scope of the prophecy, restored to life literally (Eze 37:1-14; Da 12:2).

start out with current attitude toward the Jews…

A Cup of Reeling Zech 12:2-4

1/10 of 1% of the world population

5 million, 8000 sq mi

then, 

A great calamity will come upon the land and two-thirds of Israel’s people will be killed. The other third will be purified. The result of this national calamity will be that the purified will call upon the name of God, and they will be heard by Him. He will accept them and they will accept Jesus as their Messiah. This is why Jesus warned Israel to flee to the wilderness for protection during this time.

 

Zech 13:7-9- 2/3 of Jews killed during Trib.

This is why the Jews are told to ‘run for the hills’ 

by Jesus both in Luke 21:20-24 and Revelation 12:6,13-17

 

Hosea - a metaphor of God’s relationship with the Jews by using an unfaithful wife (Gomer) and a godly man (Hosea).

 

1 At the end of the Tribulation, when the Jews have come to the end of themselves, they will turn to God and receive Yeshua as their Messiah (Zechariah 12:10, Romans 9:27-28, & Romans 11:25-27).

2 Jesus will return and regather all believing Jews to Israel (Deuteronomy 30:1-9).

TOPOGRAPHY CHANGES.. 

afterwards, 

3 Israel will be established as the prime nation in the world (Isaiah 2:1-4 & Micah 4:1-7).

4 The Lord will bless the Jewish remnant by fulfilling all the promises He has made to Israel (Isaiah 60:1-62:7) !!

5 The blessings of God will flow out to all the nations through the Jewish people during the Millennial rule of Jesus (Zechariah 8:22-23).

  • Feast of tabernacles will be re-instituted in Mill Kingdom Zech 14:18 (see Feasts in Rose Pub). Originally it celebrated being delivered from slavery, across the Red Sea. Will then be celebrating how Jesus delivered us through the world. We’ll then reign with Jesus over the nations who are invited to come and worship. According to Zech 14:17, if they don’t come up, they will not have any rain.
  • They will build houses and inhabit them; They will also plant vineyards and eat their fruit. Isa 65:21

 

BIG PICTURE

Eze 36:1-38. ISRAEL AVENGED OF HER FOES, AND RESTORED, FIRST TO INWARD HOLINESS, THEN TO OUTWARD PROSPERITY. 

Bringing the people out,

Bringing them in,

their conversion,

their being filled with the Spirit

 

God sets one shepherd over the Jews, Ez 34:23; eliminates harmful beasts so they can sleep in the woods; no longer a prey to other nations; establishes a renown planting place; increases population significantly.

 

God says the Jews will live in the land He gave to their forefathers and they will be His people and He will be their God Ez 36:28. He will put His spirit in them. Cities and waste places rebuilt. Desolate land will become like garden of Eden. 

 

Restoration of Israel - Amos 9:11-15; ISA 60:11-16

 

The Millennial Temple and it’s Worship 

Ez 40-47

  • Feast of tabernacles will be re-instituted in Mill Kingdom Zech 14:18 (see Feasts in Rose Pub). Originally it celebrated being delivered from slavery, across the Red Sea. Will then be celebrating how Jesus delivered us through the world. We’ll then reign with Jesus over the nations who are invited to come and worship. According to Zech 14:17, if they don’t come up, they will not have any rain.

Doubtless these offerings will be memorial, looking back to the cross, as the offerings under the old covenant were anticipatory, looking forward to the cross. In neither case have animal sacrifices power to put away sin. Hebrews 10:4; Romans 3:25.  

The whole sacrificial system is not aaronic, pertinent parts are left out…. 

e.g. no Ark of the Covenant, Table of the Law, Cherubim, Mercy Seat, Veil, Golden Candlestick, or Table of Showbread
