Outcasts Return

Isaiah 11:12. “And He shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcast of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.

Some believe that the ensign, or banner, will be the Israeli flag with the Star of David. We are not told what it will look like; only that the Jews from all around with world will be called back to Israel  under this flag.

The word outcast is used here and in several other places only of Israel, and not of Judah. There are other prophecies regarding the “outcast of Israel” in Is.56:8, Ps. 147:2, and Is. 56:1-5; Is. 27:12-13.

The four corners of the earth  is a reference to the four directions: East, west north and south (Rev. 7:1).

  1. It would almost seem unpatriotic to not stand proudly under the flag of Israel. I cannot imagine myself not standing under it with pride. There stood my heroes: Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, David, Solomon, and on and on. All those listed in Hebrews eleven counted it joy to stand in favor of our Creator-God. Jehovah.
