et in this they forget that the centrality of Israel is the foundation of God ’ s plan to not only save the Gentiles ; thus , leading to the salvation and fullness for all nations ( Romans 11:25 )— so they should not at all feel left out . God is building His “ household ” from every nation on earth . The primary reason that God called one nation , was to reach the whole world with the gospel .
“ It is too small a thing for you to be my servant to restore the tribes of Jacob and bring back those of Israel I have kept . I will also make you a light for the Gentiles , that my salvation may reach to the ends of the earth .” ( Isaiah 49:6 )
The fact that God called Israel is proof of God ’ s great love for the nations . This is also seen with those of us who live as Messianic Jews in the Land of Israel where part of the irrevocable calling is that God would draw us back her from all over the word in the End Times .
Are Jewish believers not part of that ingathering ? And if not , how can we be a witness to our Israeli brothers and sisters ?
Furthermore , the promise of land restoration to Israel is the hope that believers have been praying into for a millennia , understanding that it leads to Romans 11:26 , where all Israel is saved ! In the very chapters where Jeremiah promises that God will make a new covenant with Israel and bring them back to their land . You cannot separate God ’ s promise to bring the Jewish people back into their own land from His promise of End Time spiritual awakening in Israel .
Ezekiel 36:24-27 says when God brings the Jews back to Israel , her eyes will be opened saying ,
“ I will sprinkle clean water on you … I will give you a heart of flesh .”
From this , it would seem strange that once her eyes are opened , she would no longer be connected to Israel ’ s chosenness or calling .
