There is a very well known prophesy in Jeremiah 16. It was just over 7 weeks ago that we celebrated Passover, but these verses indicate an even greater miracle than Passover will take place in the last days.
Jeremiah 16:14-15 "Therefore, the days are quickly coming, declares Adonai, when it will no longer be said. 'As Adonai lives, who brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt.' Rather, 'As Adonai lives, who brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north and from all the lands where He had banished them.' So I will bring them back into their land that I gave to their fathers."
As it relates to Yeshua, there is deliverance (the Exodus from Egypt) like the first coming, and then there even a greater second coming. God says, "I will bring them back," which sound like a second coming. There was the first entry into the land (led by Joshua), and the most modern return (led by Ben Gurion among others).
The next verse prophesies both fishers and hunters. Jeremiah 16:16 "Behold, I will send for many fishers, says Adonai, and they will fish for them. After that, I will send for many hunters, and they will hunt them down from every mountain and from every hill, and out of the clefts of the rocks." Fishers, (like Theodore Herzl) who made Jewish people want to "bite the hook" and want to make Aliyah. And there were hunters (like Adolph Hitler), who so threatened the Jewish people as to make them fearful and want to run away to make Aliyah.
God prophesies such a great homecoming (made up of both those fished and hunted) that it will dwarf the great Exodus from Egypt. This exodus is (it’s still going on) from all over the world. And today we can see it. More Jews are living in Israel today than in the rest of the world combined. Jewish Israel is easily the greatest miracle of our modern era.
God is bringing back His people to their original land. God revived the Hebrew language. Now, the last part of the great miracle has already started among the remnant of Messianic Jews. Hebrews 8:10-12 "For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says Adonai. I will put My Torah into their mind, and upon their hearts I will write it. And I will be their God, and they shall be My people. And no more will they teach, each one his fellow citizen and each one his brother, saying, ‘Know Adonai,’ because all will know Me, from the least of them to the greatest. For I will be merciful toward their iniquities, and their sins I will remember no more."
This is prophesied at the end of Revelation. Revelation 21:3 "I also heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, 'Behold, the dwelling of God is among men, and He shall tabernacle among them. They shall be His people, and God Himself shall be among them and be their God.'" Wait for it. Watch for it. Yeshua is coming.
