Isaiah 59:20 & Romans 11:26…

The Lord got me going on a thought last night…

He wanted me to search out what is going to happen to Israel and when…

He led me to Isaiah 60 eventually but first via Romans 11:26 and the verse quoted in Romans 11:26 which is Isaiah 59:20…

When you read Romans 11:26 it is clear that Paul is quoting Isaiah 59:20 – there isn’t any other verse in scripture which he could be quoting but he doesn’t quote it verbatim…

“A Redeemer will come to Zion, And to those who turn from transgression in Jacob,” declares the LORD. (Isaiah 59:20 NASB)

and so all Israel will be saved; just as it is written, “THE DELIVERER WILL COME FROM ZION, HE WILL REMOVE UNGODLINESS FROM JACOB.” (Romans 11:26 NASB)

In reading the above we see that this has yet to occur…

We know this because if we keep reading in context in Isaiah 59, which merges into Isaiah 60, we see the prophetic word unfold…

“A multitude of camels will cover you, The young camels of Midian and Ephah; All those from Sheba will come; They will bring gold and frankincense, And will bear good news of the praises of the LORD.  “All the flocks of Kedar will be gathered together to you, The rams of Nebaioth will minister to you; They will go up with acceptance on My altar, And I shall glorify My glorious house. (Isaiah 60:6-7 NASB)

When all Israel is saved then ‘the young camels of Midian and Ephah’, ‘All those from Sheba’, ‘All the flocks of Kedar’ and ‘The rams of Nebaioth’ will also ‘be gathered to’ Israel, ‘minister to’ Israel and be acceptable to the Lord, i.e. the family of Abraham (less Esau’s line, as Esau despised the birthright) will be re-united in the worship of the Lord, they will all be saved…

Midian, Ephah & Sheba were descendants of Abraham through his wife Keturah whom he wed after the death of Sarah…

Kedar & Nebaioth were descendants of Abraham through Hagar, i.e. Ishmael’s offspring…

Between them they appear to account for the Arabian Desert portion of Egypt between the Gulf of Suez and the Gulf of Aqaba, Saudi Arabia, Yemen & Ethiopia…

Abraham’s children (again less Esau’s line) will be united in salvation once Israel is returned to the Lord (once their ‘partial hardening’ is over) – there will be unity for Abraham’s family…

All of Hagar and Keturah’s offspring will come to the Lord…

This has not happened yet…

I asked the Lord last night when this was going to happen and I got the word, “Now”…

All Israel will be saved and the time is “Now”…

After this the descendants of Hagar and Keturah (vast portions of the Arabian Peninsula, Ethiopia & Yemen) will be drawn to the Lord in salvation…

What a different picture to what we currently see…

What a distraction has been ‘posted’ for us to be ‘discouraged about’ in the media today as darkness presently ‘covers the earth’…

What we presently see is not reality – God’s word is…

Reality…

And it is nearing it’s time of fulfillment…

The picture of Abraham’s line being united in salvation (as the Lord commands the blessing when brothers are dwelling together in unity), is a microcosm of what will happen to the entire world…

“Arise, shine; for your light has come, And the glory of the LORD has risen upon you. “For behold, darkness will cover the earth And deep darkness the peoples; But the LORD will rise upon you And His glory will appear upon you. “Nations will come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising. “Lift up your eyes round about and see; They all gather together, they come to you. Your sons will come from afar, And your daughters will be carried in the arms. “Then you will see and be radiant, And your heart will thrill and rejoice; Because the abundance of the sea will be turned to you, The wealth of the nations will come to you. (Isaiah 60:1-5 NASB)

In Paul’s words,

For if their rejection is the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead? (Romans 11:15 NASB)

Love,

Andrew

About andrew james horton

Hi, my name is Andrew James Horton... I am a Kiwi (New Zealander), born in Christchurch (05 September 1971), now in my mid-forties (I feel so old saying that)... I am blessed to be married with five children and six grandchildren... :-) I am at present a Principal Structural Engineer, Director working in Christchurch, New Zealand... I am passionate about prophetic intercession and about revival both in New Zealand and throughout the world... I am passionate to pray that the Church, the Body of Christ, the Bride of Christ, will be all that He - the Lord Jesus Christ - desires her to be in our generation... I felt that the Lord gave me the name of this blog site, "a house of prayer for the nations - prophetic intercession for worldwide revival" and wanted me to "put it out there" and start recording the prayers which are on my heart to pray in the hope that others would also be encouraged to share the prayers which are on their hearts to pray and that in the unity of the Spirit we could participate together in this activity in different locations around the world as He leads us... If the Lord leads you, let's join in prayer for the Lord's will to be done on earth as it is in heaven in our generation... Love in the Lord, Andrew
