ISRAEL’S REBIRTH IS GOD’S TESTIMONY TO THIS WORLD: Ezekiel gives us God’s last word to the heathen nations of the world who sought to occupy His land and prevent His people from returning.
The process of this latter-day, prophetic move, as expressed by Ezekiel, is what I call the three R’s of end-time Bible prophecy concerning Israel:
1. RETURNED from exile to the land of their forefathers (36:8);
2. RESTORED of the land (36:9-15)
3. REDEEMED AND RENEWED of the spiritual life of the Jewish people in the land. (36:16-28)
In 36:34-36, he says:
“The desolate land will be cultivated instead of lying desolate in the sight of all who pass through it. They will say, ‘This land that was laid waste has become like the garden of Eden; the cities that were lying in ruins, desolate and destroyed, are now fortified and inhabited! Then the nations around you that remain will know that I, the Lord, have rebuilt what was destroyed and have replanted what was desolate. I, the Lord, have spoken, and I will do it.”
ISRAEL’S 2ND RETURN IS FINAL: This is an irreversible process since we are promised that there will never be another exile (Amos 9:15; Isaiah 11:11).
• Isaiah 11:11 It shall come to pass in that day That the Lord shall set His hand again the second time To recover the remnant of His people who are left, From Assyria and Egypt, From Pathros and Cush, From Elam and Shinar, From Hamath and the islands of the sea.
• Amos 9:15 I will plant them in their land, And no longer shall they be pulled up From the land I have given them,” Says the Lord your God.
