A Finnish Believer’s Reaction
“Jan Willem van der Hoeven is the only one (I know) who has taught that Israel will receive Jesus as their Messiah at least 7 years before Jesus is coming back.
This would be extremely important when the final redemption is near. Would you please give me a hint about Jan Willem’s teachings about this? I have two CD’s about this. He should teach nowadays about this!”
In response to this kind letter from a lovely fellow Finnish believer, I felt to write down some of the scriptural reasons which clearly show that, before the physical second coming of Our Lord and Saviour, there will be a nationwide spiritual awakening in Israel.
In this more extensive Bible study (click here), I will explain the great importance of this subject, as it will revolutionize your understanding of what is soon about to happen in Israel. Please take the time to study this important issue in the full article enclosed.
These are the five most relevant points that soon have to take place:
Messiah will not come without a heartfelt welcome by His people!
So how will this happen? He will only come when they will say:
“Blessed is He who comes in the name of The LORD!” Luke 13:35.
They will only be able to say these words after the Holy Spirit has been blown and poured out upon them as Zechariah prophesied:
“And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn,” Zechariah 12:10.
And also prophesied by Joel, which Peter quoted in the Book of Acts:
“And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, that I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions, your old men shall dream dreams,” Acts 2:17.
Still no-one will be able to enter into God’s Kingdom, except through the Holy Spirit and water as Jesus explained to Nicodemus!
“Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and Spirit, he cannot enter the Kingdom of God,” John 3:5.
In other words, every one touched by God’s Holy Spirit needs to go through this way, just like the apostle Paul did, who significantly calls his own born-again experience a pre-timely birth.
The direct result of the people of Israel’s full redemption is that it will unite the worldwide body true believers — by God’s Holy Spirit — with the restored Israel of God, as we read in Ezekiel.
“Say to them, Thus says The LORD God: “Surely I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel, his companions; and I will join them with it, with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they will be one in My hand,” Ezekiel 37:19.
Resulting in the two restored sticks Judah (modern Israel) and Ephraim (the full number of Gentile believers) becoming one flock, one stick, one tree and one full Israel of God.
In Revelation the bride of the Lamb is being described, with all tribes of Israel being part of that Bride!
“Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.” And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, having the glory of God,” Revelations 21:9-11.
The LORD will desire to make Jerusalem His residence as already expressed in Psalm 132:13-14.
So now being united with Israel, grafted into the tree and commonwealth of Israel, all believers, both Jewish and Gentile, will have the great desire to build the Temple of the Lord, to welcome Him back to His Holy Hill.
“Even those from afar shall come build the Temple of The LORD,” Zechariah 6:15.
When the Temple has been built all believers will call upon Him to come and take up His residence here.
