Is there a future of Israel?

Question of the day: Is there a future for Israel, and how do we know?

Answer: In the first few verses of Deuteronomy 30, Moses is speaking prophetically as he gives a summary of God's plans for the future. The children of Israel have not yet even entered the promised land for the first time, and already Moses is prophesying of the exile caused by disobedience. THE END... NOT.

Deuteronomy 30:2-3 "and you return to Adonai your God and listen to His voice according to all that I am commanding you today--you and your children--with all your heart and with all your soul, then Adonai your God will bring you back from captivity and have compassion on you, and He will return and gather you from all the peoples where Adonai your God has scattered you."

The question arises, "Is this a promise, or a conditional statement?" As our friend Glen Blank says, "Yes, both." It is conditional, "If you will listen to the voice of God, then I (God) will bring you back ..." But it is also a promise, "You WILL listen to the voice of God, AND I will bring you back." We have to appreciate the preponderance of Scripture that provides blessed assurance that God is never done with Israel.

Isaiah 11:12 "He will lift up a banner for the nations, and assemble the dispersed of Israel, and gather the scattered of Judah from the four corners of the earth."

Jeremiah 31:36 "Thus says Adonai: Only if heaven above can be measured and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, then also I will cast off the offspring of Israel--for all they have done. It is a declaration of Adonai."

Amos 9:14; Zechariah 14:1; Joel 3:1; Ezekiel 36:24; Joel 2:19; Hosea 6:1 and so very much more. The entire Bible is full of promises from God to restore the fortunes of Israel. God is not done with His people, Israel, but will use them to bring in a worldwide harvest.

Hosea 6:11 "Also, Judah, there is a harvest for you, when I return My people from captivity." Don't act surprised when this happens. When Yeshua returns, we will speak this truth to Him, "We've been expecting You."
