For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in.—Romans 11:25
There is a mystery of God unfolding in our generation, that is the rebirth and coming revival of the Nation of Israel. No other people group has experienced such persecution over the past 2000 years yet God preserved them because His calling on the Nation of Israel to bless all nations still stands today. We are witnessing a miracle of God’s faithfulness and ability to restore right before our eyes!
The nation of Israel was cast out of their land because of their rejecting God out of their life. God made it very clear what would happen to them as a Nation if their turned their hearts from Him. But God is merciful and faithful to His own Name and will bring to pass His plan for Israel even though all the nations turn against her.
Israel is a sign of God’s work in this earth. Notice what Paul said…
Now if their fall is riches for the world, and their failure riches for the Gentiles, how much more their fullness! For if their being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead?—Romans 11:12,15
When Israel was cast out of the land the church was launched to carry the Gospel to bring reconciliation to all nations. When Israel was reborn as a nation in 1948 it signaled a countdown to the completion of the Harvest and the resurrection from the dead. What a time to be alive! Lets commit to bringing the harvest in—people need Jesus!
