There are many prophecies regarding the return of the House of Israel to the Land. (the House of Judah has already returned) Fulfilment awaits 2 cleansings:-
- Firstly the Land is to be cleansed out of “the evil neighbours” along with the apostate inhabitants of Israel. Jeremiah 12:14-17
- Secondly, The House of Israel must be judged and passed under the rod.
The prophecies that seem to fit the clearing of the Land follow:
Ezekiel 20:46-48 … prophesy toward the scrubland of the Negev. (some translations say “the southland” but my Revised English Bible uses the Hebrew word: Negev.)
I am about to kindle a fire in you; anything flammable will be burned.
It’s fiery flame will not be put out- everyone in the North will be scorched by it.
[This is fire from the sky, can only be a Coronal Mass Ejection, a sunstrike]
Everyone will see that I, the Lord have set it ablaze, not to be put out.
Ezekiel 21:4 I intend to do away with both righteous and wicked alike.
My sword is drawn against everyone from the Negev northward.
Ezekiel 20:10-13 My sword is sharpened to kill, even the sceptre of My Royal Son.
(The tribe of Judah holds the sceptre – the Royal line.)
“Testing will surely come. And what if even the sceptre, which the Sword despises, does not continue?” declares the Sovereign Lord.
Isaiah 9:18-20 Wicked men have been set ablaze. The Land is scorched and the people are food for the fire. Manasseh and Ephraim are against Judah.
Jeremiah 8:5-6 Judah is incurable in their waywardness. There is no remorse or repentance.
Jeremiah 7-8-12 They say- we are wise, but their Rabbis and scribes falsify the Law. Therefore, I will give their land to new owners. For all, high and low are out for ill gotten gain; the Rabbis and prophets are frauds. They say – “All is well”– no; nothing is well. They will all fall on the day of reckoning. Matthew 21:43
Isaiah 48 v 6…. I show you new things, hidden things you did not know before.
