    I will give the Land to new owners

    Zephaniah 3:1-8 Woe to the place of oppression, filthy and defiled, they heed no warning voice and ignore Godís rebukes. They wonít take correction or place their trust in their Creator. Their leaders have no concern for the people and prophet and priest alike profane the Holy Scriptures.
    The Lord has judged and punished them before, their land laid waste and the towns deserted and He thought: surely now they will fear Me and will accept instruction, but they continue on in their evil deeds and they show no shame for it.
    Judah has been punished by Babylon and by Rome.
    Therefore: look out for Me, for the Day when I will stand up to witness against you, on the Day that I execute justice upon the nations, for I will pour out My fierce anger and the whole earth will be enveloped by the fire of My wrath.
    This will be the great and terrible Day of the Lordís vengeance and wrath against the nations. Prophesied in the Bible over 100 times. 2 Peter 3:7, Revelation 6:12-17, +

    Zephaniah 3:11-13 On that Day, Jerusalem, I shall wipe away your shame for all the transgressions committed in you, for I shall remove all your proud and arrogant citizens, only the humble and peaceful people will remain and those who never practise evil or speak lies, they will settle in the Land and nothing will disturb them.
    This is the great Second Exodus of all of Godís people into all of the holy Land. Every faithful Christian: a vast multitude from every tribe, race, nation and language. Isaiah 66:18-21, Ezekiel 34:11-31, Romans 9:24=26, Revelation 7:9

    Zephaniah 3:9-10 They will all know a pure language, so everyone will know the true Name of the Lord and will praise Him with one accord. My worshippers, all the righteous people will come from afar to worship the Lord and bring offerings to Him. People from every race, nation and language, all the born again Christian people, will travel there to live, in the new nation of Beulah, Isaiah 62:1-5, while the rest of the world is ruled by a One World Government. Daniel 7:23, Revelation 17:12

    Zephaniah 3:14-17 Daughter of Jerusalem; sing for joy! For the Lord has taken away your punishments and has cast out your enemies. Now the Lord is with you and you need never again fear disaster.
    On the Day of the Lordís wrath; This is the message for My people: Fear not, stand firm in your faith, your God will keep you safe and will rejoice over you.
    Ref: REB, CJB, KJV. Some verses condensed and paraphrased.

    This chapter of Zephaniah encapsulates the soon to happen end times story.
    It tells how Jerusalem is denigrated by its ungodly inhabitants and will rejoice when they are gone. How those enemies of the Lord, the evil neighbors, Jeremiah 12:14, and all who reject the Salvation of Jesus, will be uprooted, then the holy Land resettled by the Lordís faithful believers. Ezekiel 34:11-31 tells it plainly.

    Jeremiah 7:30-34 & 8:1-13 The people of Judah have done wrong, they worship idols and have no regard for their Creator....Therefore, the time is coming when I shall fill the valley of Topeth with their corpses.......All the survivorís of this wicked race, from wherever I have banished them, would rather die than live. Isaiah 22:14
    ...Judah is incurable in their waywardness......I listen, but I hear not one word of remorse ....My people do not know the Judgements of the Lord. How can you say: We are wise and we have the Law of God, when your scribes and priests have falsified it? The wise are shamed and where is wisdom in them?
    Therefore I will give their wives to others and give their land to new owners, for all of their prophets and priests are frauds....on My Day of reckoning, they will fall with a great crash. I shall surely consume them says the Lord and there will be no grapes on the vine, [Israel] and no figs on the fig tree. [Judah]

    We Christians are told by Paul in 1 Thessalonians 5:4-5, that we should know Godís plans for what will happen in the near future. Zephaniah 3 gives it to us, confirmed by the sequence of Revelation chapters 6-7.

    What is presented to you in these scriptures, is Godís Promises to His faithful people, His blessings of peace and prosperity, of joy and happiness, of security and long life, as all who love Him and keep the Commandments; will live in His Land.
    It is the prophetic parallel of ancient Israel, where Jesus led the people through the desert and how most of them refused to accept the Promise. 1 Corinthians 10:6-13
    Ezekiel 20:34-38 tells how, once again, some of His people will revolt and rebel and they will not enter the Land of Israel.

    In todayís situation, we have many who have accepted the Gospel, but who have chosen their own beliefs about what God intends to do for His people and during this forthcoming test, 1 Peter 4:12, they may fail to stand firm in their trust that the Lord will protect them. This wonít lose their salvation, but it will be a serious disadvantage, 1 Corinthians 3:13-15

    As the great chapter of Isaiah 35:1-10, one of the many prophesies that describe the Lordís faithful Christian people entering the holy Land, says: ...no one unclean will go there....The Lordís people, set free: will enter Zion with shouts of triumph.

    Re: I will give the Land to new owners

    Jeremiah 8 was a warning to that generation, not ours; and it took place 2500 years ago.
    "For a small moment have I forsaken you, and with great mercy will I gather you.With a little wrath did I hide My countenance for a moment from you, and with everlasting kindness will I have compassion on you," said your Redeemer, the Lord."..."For the mountains shall depart and the hills totter, but My kindness shall not depart from you, neither shall the covenant of My peace totter," says the Lord, Who has compassion on you.

    Isaiah 54

    Re: I will give the Land to new owners

    All the Land that was promised to Abraham will be cleared and cleansed after this next prophesied event, the Lord’s Day of vengeance and wrath, the Judgement by fire. Isaiah 66:15-16 Then, as Isaiah and Ezekiel prophesy; His people will be gathered and ‘passed under the rod’. [The rod of judgement and separation] The righteous then enter the Land, with great joy, singing praises to their Redeemer. Ezekiel 20:34-38, Isaiah 35:1-10

    Isaiah 6:11-12 I asked the Lord: How long? Until the Land and cities are desolate and deserted, their houses vacant. He will drive the people far away and all the country will be one vast desolation.
    Isaiah 17:9 On the Day of retribution, cities will be deserted, like those of your enemies in ancient times.

    When the Christian Israelites, the faithful people of God; Jews and Gentiles, enter the depopulated Land, there are amazing promises to them of how the Land will be fruitful and they will live in the houses left vacant. Christians from every tribe, race, nation and language are the true Israelites of God. Galatians 3:26-29, 6:16

    Psalm 69:35 For You will deliver Zion and the cities will be rebuilt. The Lord’s people will settle there and possess it.
    Amos 9:14 I shall restore the fortunes of My people, they will rebuild the devastated cities and live in them, plant vineyards and enjoy prosperity in their Land.
    Isaiah 54:2-3 Extend your boundaries, for you will spread in all directions and dispossess nations, then repopulate cities now desolate.
    Ezekiel 36:10 & 33 I shall settle in the Land all the Israelite people. The towns will again be inhabited and the ruined places rebuilt.
    Jeremiah 30:18 I shall restore the fortunes of Jacobs clans. Every city will be restored and houses again rebuilt.
    Isaiah 58:12-14 Buildings in ruins will be restored and you will rebuild on ancient foundations. You will be called ‘the restorer of houses’. Ref. REB.

    2 Esdras 1:35-37 I shall hand over the homes of your enemies to a people yet to come, a people who will trust Me, though they have not known Me, who will obey My commandments, even though they never saw the prophets. Yet they will keep in mind what the prophets taught of old. I vow that these people will have My favor, they will perceive by the spirit and believe what I have said.

    After the terrible Day of the Lord’s wrath, a Day of fire and earthquakes, in a very short time, Isaiah 29:17, the Land will be regenerated and resettled. There is no mention of Jesus being present as yet, in fact they select their own leaders. Jeremiah 30:21, Hosea 1:11
    They will rebuild the temple. [Zechariah 6:15]
    Later, it is them who greet the Returning Jesus with the shout ‘Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord!’

    Exile already happened in 586BC.
    "For a small moment have I forsaken you, and with great mercy will I gather you.With a little wrath did I hide My countenance for a moment from you, and with everlasting kindness will I have compassion on you," said your Redeemer, the Lord."..."For the mountains shall depart and the hills totter, but My kindness shall not depart from you, neither shall the covenant of My peace totter," says the Lord, Who has compassion on you.

    Then: Ezekiel 21:8-16 .....Swing the great Sword of slaughter twice, nay thrice....it is sharpened to kill and kill again My people. Ezekiel 21:27 Ruin! Ruin! Ruin! I shall bring about such ruin as never was before. Then the One will come who is the rightful ruler and He will have the Kingdom.

    Your attitude is classic 'head in the sand'. You don't want Judgement, so you don't see it. Not good when it happens, as it surely will. Ezekiel 33:33a

    It happened already. How many Jews have to be killed before you're satisfied? All of them?

    Re: I will give the Land to new owners

    This should make you happier, Fenris. From Judah will come the leaders......

    Zechariah 9:14-15 The Lord will appear over His people and His weapon of judgement will flash like lightning. His war shofar will make a great sound, accompanied by a terrible whirlwind. The Lord will protect His people and they will exult in His deliverance. Paralleled by Isaiah 30:26
    Zechariah 10:1-12 For now, your false gods and idols give empty promises, dreams and delusions. So My people are left to wander about, like sheep and distressed for the lack of a proper shepherd.
    The Lord’s anger burns against the leaders of His people, they will fall on the Day of His wrath.
    For the Lord will care for His flock, He will strengthen the House of Judah and save the House of Joseph. From Judah will come the leaders that will be My battleaxe and they will rout the enemy, because I am with them. The warriors of Ephraim will exult and rejoice in the Lord’s victory and in their deliverance. The families of the Lord’s people will see and be glad with what the Lord has done.
    The pride of the nations will be brought low, but Israel’s strength will be in the Lord, they will march proudly in His Name.
    He will whistle and call them in. His redeemed people, though now in far off lands, they will answer the call. They will return to their heritage, bringing their children with them. The Lord will bring them home from every nation around the world and He will lead them into Gilead and Lebanon until there is no more room for them all. They will pass through rivers that will dry up for them to cross.
    The Lord will give rain in due season, grass in the fields and fruit abundantly. On the Day the Lord takes action, He will save His flock. For they are like precious gems in His crown, they will sparkle all over His Land. What wealth is theirs! What beauty! Good food and drink will give health and strength to the young men and women.
    Ref: REB, CJB.

    This prophecy reiterates the great promise of God to His righteous people, whether they are descendants of Jacob or grafted in Christians. The Lord will protect them on His great Day of judgement and punishment of the nations, as He brings down the pride of His enemies, but the strength of every true believers is in the Lord. He will be revealed to them; 2 Thess. 1:10, and will direct them into the Holy Land as He did with ancient Israel. 1 Corinthians 10:4 This is not the Return in glory, to come later.

    All of that area given so long ago to Abraham, will be burnt, devastated and depopulated by the Lord’s Day of wrath – lightning flashes, great noise, earthquakes and powerful storms - as described here and in other prophesies as a coronal mass ejection, explosion of the sun, that will affect all of the world, but primarily the Middle East region. Zephaniah 2:4, Ezekiel 30:1-5, Amos 1, 2 Peter 3:7

    Ezekiel 36:8 But you mountains of Israel, put forth your branches and bear fruit, for the homecoming of My people is near.
    This and many other prophesies say how the Lord will send rain and the holy Land will quickly regenerate into a Land of plenty and prosperity, ready for the great emigration of all the Lord’s Christian peoples. Psalms 107 They will live there as the rest of the end time prophesies unfold and it is them who say to Jesus: Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord! Be ready for the whistle!

    Ah, finally. Yes, Zechariah 9 and 10 are yet to come. So is 14: And it will come to pass that everyone left of the nations who came up against Jerusalem will go up from year to year to prostrate himself to the King, the Lord of Hosts, and to celebrate the festival of Tabernacles.
    "For a small moment have I forsaken you, and with great mercy will I gather you.With a little wrath did I hide My countenance for a moment from you, and with everlasting kindness will I have compassion on you," said your Redeemer, the Lord."..."For the mountains shall depart and the hills totter, but My kindness shall not depart from you, neither shall the covenant of My peace totter," says the Lord, Who has compassion on you.

    So now, we just need to be sure of who the Redeemed of the Lord, now in far off lands and His flock are.
    Keeping in mind that since Jesus came, ethnicity and descent from Abraham, actual or claimed, has no bearing on who they are.

    When the Lord sounds His great shofar and the sun flashes like lightning, who are the people He will protect and save?
    1/ Those who don't believe in God; atheists?
    2/ Those who reject God's Son?
    3/ Those who rely on their military prowess?
    4/ Those who live the LGBT lifestyle?
    5/ Those who ignore the Bible prophesies and believe in an escape to heaven?
    6/ Those who live what is considered now to be a lawful life, but are just the same as in the days of Noah?

    OR; all the humble people, from every race, nation and language, who believe in a Creator God and acknowledge Him, who keep the Commandments and who pray for the Return of Jesus to restore the world to its proper state. THEY will do as we are told in Joel 2:32 and Acts 2:21 and the Lord will save them.

    God is going to protect the Jewish people, because He promised that he would. And he's going to protect righteous gentiles also. Whether people getting themselves all excited at the thought that millions of Jews will die are "righteous", I leave that decision to Him.
    "For a small moment have I forsaken you, and with great mercy will I gather you.With a little wrath did I hide My countenance for a moment from you, and with everlasting kindness will I have compassion on you," said your Redeemer, the Lord."..."For the mountains shall depart and the hills totter, but My kindness shall not depart from you, neither shall the covenant of My peace totter," says the Lord, Who has compassion on you.

    I agree that God is going to protect the Jews, but the way I am reading Zech 14, it is those Jews who obey His teaching and "flee, as they did in the days of Uzziah..."
    They will go into the wilderness, where He will succour them, even as He did a long time ago when Moses was on the earth. This time according to NT teaching there will be Two Witnesses leading them. Now these two are also mentioned here:
    Zec 4:3* And there are two olive trees by it, one on the right of the bowl and the other on its left.”*
    Zec 4:4* And I said to the angel who talked with me, “What are these, my lord?”*
    Zec 4:5* Then the angel who talked with me answered and said to me, “Do you not know what these are?” I said, “No, my lord.”*

    Zec 4:11* Then I said to him, “What are these two olive trees on the right and the left of the lampstand?”*
    Zec 4:12* And a second time I answered and said to him, “What are these two branches of the olive trees, which are beside the two golden pipes from which the golden oil is poured out?”*
    Zec 4:13* He said to me, “Do you not know what these are?” I said, “No, my lord.”*
    Zec 4:14* Then he said, “These are the two anointed ones who stand by the Lord of the whole earth.”*

    Kings and priests were both anointed upon assuming office. So maybe it means the royal line and the priests, not any two individuals. Just throwing that out there...

    Indeed, Kings and priests, some think of the Law and Prophets - whence comes the Law, except by the priests and kings. Are prophets also not anointed?
    2Ki 2:9* When they had crossed, Elijah said to Elisha, “Ask what I shall do for you, before I am taken from you.” And Elisha said, “Please let there be a double portion of your spirit on me.”*
    2Ki 2:10* And he said, “You have asked a hard thing; yet, if you see me as I am being taken from you, it shall be so for you, but if you do not see me, it shall not be so.”*

    Psa 105:15* saying, “Touch not my anointed ones, do my prophets no harm!”

    Isa_61:1* The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;

    Re: I will give the Land to new owners

    Thread diversion alert!

    Revelation 5:9-10.....You have made them [Christians] a royal House of priests for our God and they shall reign on earth.
    Who the two Witnesses are is a unfruitful speculation as the Bible simply does not tell us.

    Who the new owners of the holy Land will be is the question. From that statement, we know it cannot be the old owners.

    I'm guessing the Assyrians and Babylonians. But not to worry, God promised the land as an eternal inheritance to the Jews. And guess what? they're back!
