More Millennial Promises

Isaiah 62:1-2

For Zion’s sake will I not hold My peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth.

And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the Lord shall name.

You should note that all the Millennial prophecies are around Zion, Jerusalem, and Judah.There is some thinking out there that Israel becomes the church, and that the Gentile nations will fulfill these prophecies. After a careful study of the book of Isaiah, I find it crystal clear that not only will Israel be re-established as a nation (already fulfilled, in 1948) but that she is the center of God’s plan for the Millennium. The Gentile nations will no longer be at war with Israel, but will rejoice in her righteousness. All the leaders will acknowledge her glory. She will even be given a new name, which God Himself will establish.

Nowhere in scripture does God renounce Israel forever. Satan will do his worst during the Tribulation period to destroy Israel, but God is greater, and Satan will fail. We can take comfort in that–knowing that in the end, all will be exactly as God has said, and Israel will come into her own as God’s chosen land and people.

These prophecies appear not only in Isaiah, but in every prophetic book, major and minor, in God’s Word; also in Matthew, a few other mentions throughout the New Testament, and in the book of Revelation. Israel is never replaced, displaced, or permanently destroyed.
