More than one thousand Jews have immigrated to Israel since the Gaza war started sixteen days ago. In fact, the number is at least 1,128 new Israelis. Praise the Lord! Today I share the motive and links to several reports documenting this miracle. Why would perfectly normal families and single people living in Canada, France, Ukraine and the United States decide to come now? Or, since they had planned this for some time, why did they not cancel or postpone? Some will rightfully point to the rise of anti-Semitism in France and Ukraine. Yet that is not the real motive. There is something happening in the depths of the heart of many. It is calling them home. It is the voice of Yehovah God, keeping His Promise!
“For there shall be a day when the watchmen will cry on Mount Ephraim, ‘Arise, and let us go up to Zion, to Yehovah our God.’ ” For thus says Yehovah: “Sing with gladness for Jacob, and shout among the chief of the nations; proclaim, give praise, and say, ‘O Yehovah, save Your people, the remnant of Israel!’Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the ends of the earth, among them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and the one who labors with child, together; A great throng shall return there.
They shall come with weeping, and with supplications I will lead them. I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters, in a straight way in which they shall not stumble; for I am a Father to Israel, and Ephraim is My firstborn. “Hear the word of Yehovah, O nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, ‘He who scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him as a shepherd does his flock.’ For Yehovah has redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the hand of one stronger than he. Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion, streaming to the goodness of Yehovah.” Jeremiah 31:6-12
I am one such watchman and I live in the nation that is certainly the chief among the nations in my generation. It is my call to proclaim the regathering and restoration of Israel. I am surely humbled and grateful for the role to which I am called. Perhaps you, too, hear that Voice of the Holy Spirit stirring you to PROCLAIM! If so, please obey and use every means at your disposal to spread the word of Yehovah’s regathering and restoration.

“Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance, and the young men and the old, together; for I will turn their mourning to joy, will comfort them, and make them rejoice rather than sorrow. Jeremiah 31:13
(As is my custom, I have taken the liberty to change the word “LORD” to Yehovah. Every single time you see LORD or GOD in all capital letters in the Old Testament, the actual Hebrew word is Yehovah. This name occurs 6,828 times in the Hebrew text, yet remains untranslated in most Bibles. His name, obscured for 2,500 years, is now being revealed. It is TIME to restore the name of Yehovah!)
