In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He [Jesus Christ -Yeshua] was in the beginning with God.


The promise as proclaimed by the prophets has been delivered in part. In Ezekiel chapter 37, God gave Ezekiel a vision of dry bones and two sticks. Ezekiel was shown that God’s people, the Jews, who represent the dry bones, would be brought back to their home in Palestine, and the two nations of Israel and Judah (the two sticks) would be reunited in a new messianic kingdom to come.

There are three stages regarding the dry bones: the scattering, the coming together, and the bringing back to life. The dry bones represent the whole house of Israel. In the first stage, the scattering of the Jews, the dry bones, began with the fall of Judah and the great deportation of the Jews to Babylonia in 605 BC. Although a remnant of Israel returned to Judah after the Babylonian captivity, the house of Israel was not a sovereign nation and was again scattered after 70 AD until Israel's rebirth as a nation in 1948. This represents the second stage, the coming together. However, Israel today is like dead bones without life. This may sound harsh, but this is what God says about Israel. Today, Israel as a whole continues to reject Jesus Christ as the Messiah and, therefore, is dead to God. The third stage, the bringing back to life, has yet to occur. This is spiritual life that will be given to the whole house of Israel when Christ returns and Israel repents of its sin of rejection. During the Millennium age, Christ will be their shepherd and David will be their King. Israel will be the greatest nation on earth. The peoples of the Gentile nations will come to Jerusalem to worship the King of Kings, the Lord Jesus Christ. The greatest period of peace and prosperity will exist on earth in righteousness. Following the Millennium age, Christ will usher all who are His into the kingdom of God for eternity.

One of the greatest sins of the Gentiles since Christ’s first coming has been to blame the Jews for His crucifixion. This is blatant, self-righteous pride. The whole world has crucified Christ. When Christ returns to earth, He will judge all nations for rejecting the gospel. Conversely, all who have accepted Christ will have eternal life with Him. He will set up a theocratic government on earth. Those who reject this form of government led by Christ need not worry. They will not be included.
