Isaiah 11:11-12 In that day the Lord will extend his hand yet a second time to recover the remnant that remains of his people, from Assyria, from Egypt, from Pathros, from Cush, from Elam, from Shinar, from Hamath, and from the coastlands of the sea. He will raise a signal for the nations and will assemble the banished of Israel, and gather the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.

Ezekiel 20:34 I will bring you out from the peoples and gather you out of the countries where you are scattered, with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm, and with wrath poured out.

Israel is about to celebrate its 68th birthday. The Central Bureau of Statistics announced Israel has 8.522 million citizens. This is 10 times more than in 1948, the rebirth of the nation. Approximately 75% of the population is Jewish.

In 2014 there were 14.3 million Jews in the world. Forty three percent were estimated to live Israel.

In 1948, Tel Aviv was the only city with over 100,000 people. Today in May of 2016, there are 14 cities over 100,000.

Last year, 36,000 moved to Israel, Aliyah. This is the voluntary immigration back to the land of Israel from the diaspora. Simply stated, Aliyah means ascent.

For more details, see the link below from the Jerusalem Post.

Trend Update: Immigration to Israel/Aliyah, February 2015

Jeremiah 31:8, 10 “Behold, I am bringing them from the north country, and I will gather them from the remote parts of the earth, among them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and she who is in labor with child, together; a great company, they will return here. Hear the word of the LORD, O nations, and declare in the coastlands afar off, and say, “He who scattered Israel will gather him and keep him as a shepherd keeps his flock.” –Lord God

Jeremiah 31 is a chapter about the future restoration of the country Israel, the people, the land, and the city of Jerusalem. The chapter promises a return of the Jews to the land of Israel. Happiness, safety, and peace abound. Agriculture efforts will flourish. Produce and livestock increases will be exponential. Israel will repent of its past. There will be a spiritual rebirth. Cities across Israel will be rebuilt. Jerusalem will be the capital and the size of the city will be expanded.

God promises His people (Israel) through the course of the Bible He will return them to the land of their fathers. Over three million Jews have immigrated back to the land of Israel since 1948 (http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/).

Read today’s (February 2015) news. After a shooting of Jews in Denmark, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is calling for Jews to return to their homeland of Israel. This is in response to the rise of anti-Semitism across Europe and the world. Today (February 2015) Jews are returning en masse from France, Ukraine, and Belgium. European leaders have been vocally opposed for the call to return to Israel despite the anti-Semitism taking place in their countries.

As a friend put it, “Prophecies being fulfilled right there!”

Jeremiah 31:17 “There is hope for your future,” declares the LORD, “And your children will return to their own territory.”
