THE JEWS RETURN TO THE LAND
In 1948 AD the Nation of Israel is born, in one day.
Isaiah 66:8 Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to give birth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once? For as soon as Zion was in labor, She gave birth to her children.
The Parable of the Fig Tree: The Regathering
“Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. So you also, when you see all these things, know that it (or He) is near—at the doors! Assuredly, I say to you, this generation (the generation that sees the restoration of Israel) will by no means pass away till all these things take place (The return of the son of man.)” Matthew 24:32-34
Israel became a nation in 1948 AD. The return of the Jews to their homeland is symbolic of Israel putting forth tender leaves. Throughout scripture God compares the Jews to a Fig Tree.
- the Apocalypse of Peter
In the Apocalypse of Peter (Ethiopic edition) (a noncanonical manuscript from ~120 AD) The writing is an early Christian commentary on Jesus’ famous prophecy given to His disciples on the Mount of Olives regarding the signs of His return in the last days…
It documents the understanding of the early post-apostolic Church that the fig tree was understood by the Jewish Christians to be a clear prophecy of the rebirth of the nation Israel in the last days prior to Christ’s return.
In this edition, Peter is being quoted “Hast thou not grasped that the fig-tree is the house of Israel?”
2. Verses regarding Israel and the Fig Tree:
“ And I will destroy her vines and her fig trees…” Hosea 2:12
“I found Israel like grapes in the wilderness; I saw your fathers as the first fruits on
the fig tree in its first season.” Hosea 9:10a
One basket had very good figs, like the figs that are first ripe; and
the other basket had very bad figs which could not be eaten, they
were so bad. Then the LORD said to me, “What do you see,
Jeremiah?” And I said, “Figs, the good figs, very good; and the
bad, very bad, which cannot be eaten, they are so bad.” Jeremiah 24:2-3
Good Figs: ‘Like these good figs, so will I acknowledge those who are carried
away captive from Judah, whom I have sent out of this place for
their own good, into the land of the Chaldeans. For I will set My
eyes on them for good, and I will bring them back to this land; I
will build them and not pull them down, and I will plant them and
not pluck them up. Then I will give them a heart to know Me, that I
am the LORD; and they shall be My people, and I will be their God,
for they shall return to Me with their whole heart. Jeremiah 24:4b-7
Bad Figs: “And as the bad figs which cannot be eaten, they are so bad’—
surely thus says the LORD—‘so will I give up Zedekiah the king of
Judah, his princes, the residue of Jerusalem who remain in this land,
and those who dwell in the land of Egypt. 9 I will deliver them to
trouble into all the kingdoms of the earth, for their harm, to be a
reproach and a byword, a taunt and a curse, in all places where I
shall drive them. Jeremiah 24:8-9
2. The Valley of Bones in Ezekiel demonstrates the people of Israel once again becoming a nation. The “Regathering” is symbolized by the bones coming back together.
Aliyah is the immigration of Jews from the diaspora to, historically, the geographical Land of Israel, which is in the modern era chiefly represented by the State of Israel. Traditionally described as “the act of going up”, moving to the Land of Israel or “making aliyah” is one of the most basic tenets of Zionism.
