Isaiah 10:21-22. “The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God. For though Thy people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the consumption decreed shall overflow with righteousness.”
Through the centuries, God’s people turned away from Him to idolatry. Time after time, they were punished, their homeland taken away; many were killed, many were taken into captivity. The last great dispersion happened after Rome destroyed Jerusalem in 70 a.d.
Israel did not have a home again until 1948, when Israel gained status as a recognized nation. If you follow current events, you know that most of the surrounding nations today want nothing more than to destroy Israel and wipe all Jews out of existence.
There are many today who are returning to the homeland. There are terrible times of persecution and death still to come, but in God’s timing, the remnant that survives the Great Tribulation will return, and they will also return to God.
The consumption mentioned is the end of the age, and of God’s dealings with a recalcitrant Israel. No more destruction, death, and terror. Also, the times of the Gentiles will have been fulfilled. The stage is set for the Millenial Kingdom.
Righteousness will mark the remnant, and the ages to come.
I can’t wait.
