This week has had several controversial Scriptures. This is another, regarding the timing of this SECOND gathering from the four corners of the world.
I suggest as with so many of God’s promises, this has a progressive fulfillment. Certainly the gathering of the Jewish people from the four corners of the world gained momentum in the 19th century, and it will continue until it’s completion in “that day” when the wolf lays with the lamb!”
Isaiah 11:10-12: “And in that day there shall be a Root of Jesse, Who shall stand as a banner to the people; for the Gentiles shall seek Him, and His resting place shall be glorious.”
It shall come to pass in that day that the Lord shall set His hand again the second time to recover the remnant of His people who are left, from Assyria and Egypt, from Pathros and Cush, from Elam and Shinar, from Hamath and the islands of the sea.
He will set up a banner for the nations, and will assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.
