MLC Study of the Month
Promises Given To Israel

by Marshall Beeber
Overview of the Study
purpose of this study is to better understand the
many prophecies given to the nation of Israel
concerning the return or reign of the Messiah in the
"Latter Days". The term "Latter Days" is used in
both New and Old Covenant scriptures describing the
events surrounding the coming of the Messiah and the
age following His coming.
study shows both Christians and Jews that the
purposes of God toward both the nation of Israel and
the Church are inseparable, and in many cases
identical. The tremendous literary weight of these
scriptures leads us to an understanding that Yeshua
(Jesus) himself will initiate a reconciliation with
Israel and will include the Church in many of the
blessings promised to Israel in the future.
mystery of what will become of both Israel and the
Church is not really hard to solve. It appears that
the Lord will merge the Israeli national identity
and the Christian identity in that day. I believe
that such an understanding will promote a deeper
appreciation of Israel's purpose in God's prophetic
plan for the Christian reader, and reveal the Lord's
great love and merciful intentions to the Jewish
Topic 1 - New Covenant reference to Israel's future
Romans 11: 25-27 I do not want
you to be ignorant of this mystery brothers, so
that you may not be conceited: Israel has
experienced a hardening in part until the full
number of Gentiles has come in. And so will all
Israel be saved, as it is written: "The
deliverer will come from Zion; he will turn
godlessness away from Jacob. And this is my
covenant with them when I take away their sins."
Topic 2 - The Messiah will have compassion on
Israel and save them in a time of peril
Isaiah 11:10-17 In that day the
Root of Jesse will stand as a banner, for the
peoples; the nations will rally to him... He
will raise a banner for the nations and gather
the exiles of Israel; he will assemble the
scattered people of Judah from the four corners
of the earth.
Isaiah 30:19-26 O people of
Zion who live in Jerusalem, you will weep no
more. How gracious he will be when you cry for
Isaiah 40:1-5 Comfort, comfort
my people, says your God. Speak tenderly to
Jerusalem, and proclaim to her that her hard
service has been completed, that her sin has
been paid for, that she has received from the
Lord's hand double for all her sins. A voice of
one calling: "In the desert prepare the way for
the LORD ; make straight in the wilderness a
highway for our God. Every valley shall be
raised up, every mountain and hill made low; the
rough ground shall become level, the rugged
places a plain. And the glory of the LORD will
be revealed, and all mankind together will see
it. For the mouth of the LORD has spoken."
Isaiah 52:1-3 Awake, awake, O
Zion, clothe yourself with strength. Put on your
garments of splendor, O Jerusalem, the holy
city. The uncircumcised and defiled will not
enter you again. Shake off your dust; rise up,
sit enthroned, O Jerusalem. Free yourself from
the chains on your neck, O captive Daughter of
Zion. For this is what the LORD says: "You were
sold for nothing, and without money you will be
Isaiah 54:6-8 The LORD will
call you back as if you were a wife deserted and
distressed in spirit-- a wife who married young,
only to be rejected," says your God. "For a
brief moment I abandoned you, but with deep
compassion I will bring you back. In a surge of
anger I hid my face from you for a moment, but
with everlasting kindness I will have compassion
on you," says the LORD your Redeemer.
Hosea 2:14-16 "Therefore I am
now going to allure her; I will lead her into
the desert and speak tenderly to her. There I
will give her back her vineyards, and will make
the Valley of Achor a door of hope. There she
will sing as in the days of her youth, as in the
day she came up out of Egypt. "In that day,"
declares the LORD, "you will call me 'my
husband'; you will no longer call me 'my
Zephaniah 3:14-17 Sing, O
Daughter of Zion; shout aloud, O Israel! Be glad
and rejoice with all your heart, O Daughter of
Jerusalem! The LORD has taken away your
punishment, he has turned back your enemy. The
LORD, the King of Israel, is with you; never
again will you fear any harm. On that day they
will say to Jerusalem, "Do not fear, O Zion; do
not let your hands hang limp. The LORD your God
is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take
great delight in you, he will quiet you with his
love, he will rejoice over you with singing."
Zechariah 8:13-15 As you have
been an object of cursing among the nations, O
Judah and Israel, so will I save you, and you
will be a blessing. Do not be afraid, but let
your hands be strong." This is what the LORD
Almighty says: "Just as I had determined to
bring disaster upon you and showed no pity when
your fathers angered me," says the LORD
Almighty, "so now I have determined to do good
again to Jerusalem and Judah. Do not be afraid.
Zechariah 8:23 This is what the
LORD Almighty says: "In those days ten men from
all languages and nations will take firm hold of
one Jew by the hem of his robe and say, 'Let us
go with you, because we have heard that God is
Topic 3 - The Messiah to unite Israel with
Isaiah 49:19-21 19 "Though you
were ruined and made desolate and your land laid
waste, now you will be too small for your
people, and those who devoured you will be far
away. The children born during your bereavement
will yet say in your hearing, 'This place is too
small for us; give us more space to live in.'
Then you will say in your heart, 'Who bore me
these? I was bereaved and barren; I was exiled
and rejected. Who brought these up? I was left
all alone, but these--where have they come
Isaiah 54:1-3 "Sing, O barren
woman, you who never bore a child; burst into
song, shout for joy, you who were never in
labor; because more are the children of the
desolate woman than of her who has a husband,"
says the LORD. "Enlarge the place of your tent,
stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold
back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your
stakes. For you will spread out to the right and
to the left; your descendants will dispossess
nations and settle in their desolate cities.
Zechariah 2:10 "Shout and be
glad, O Daughter of Zion. For I am coming, and I
will live among you," declares the LORD. "Many
nations will be joined with the LORD in that day
and will become my people. I will live among you
and you will know that the LORD Almighty has
sent me to you.
Topic 4 - The Messiah will bring world peace
Isaiah 2:4 He will judge
between the nations and will settle disputes for
many peoples. They will beat their swords into
plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks.
Nation will not take up sword against nation,
nor will they train for war anymore.
- Israel's enemies will be removed
Isaiah 33:17-20 17 Your eyes
will see the king in his beauty and view a land
that stretches afar. In your thoughts you will
ponder the former terror: "Where is that chief
officer? Where is the one who took the revenue?
Where is the officer in charge of the towers?"
You will see those arrogant people no more,
those people of an obscure speech, with their
strange, incomprehensible tongue. Look upon
Zion, the city of our festivals; your eyes will
see Jerusalem, a peaceful abode, a tent that
will not be moved; its stakes will never be
pulled up, nor any of its ropes broken.
Isaiah 41:11-12 "All who rage
against you will surely be ashamed and
disgraced; those who oppose you will be as
nothing and perish. Though you search for your
enemies, you will not find them. Those who wage
war against you will be as nothing at all.
Topic 6 - The Messiah will dwell in
Isaiah 2:3 Many peoples will
come and say, "Come, let us go up to the
mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of
Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may
walk in his paths." The law will go out from
Zion, the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
Zechariah 8:3 This is what the
LORD says: "I will return to Zion and dwell in
Jerusalem. Then Jerusalem will be called the
City of Truth, and the mountain of the LORD
Almighty will be called the Holy Mountain.
Topic 7 - The Messiah will be king
over all the earth and only the God of Israel will
Zechariah 14:1-9 A day of the
LORD is coming when your plunder will be divided
among you. I will gather all the nations to
Jerusalem to fight against it; the city will be
captured, the houses ransacked, and the women
raped. Half of the city will go into exile, but
the rest of the people will not be taken from
the city. Then the LORD will go out and fight
against those nations, as he fights in the day
of battle. On that day his feet will stand on
the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem, and the
Mount of Olives will be split in two from east
to west, forming a great valley, with half of
the mountain moving north and half moving south.
You will flee by my mountain valley, for it will
extend to Azel. You will flee as you fled from
the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of
Judah. Then the LORD my God will come, and all
the holy ones with him. On that day there will
be no light, no cold or frost. It will be a
unique day, without daytime or nighttime--a day
known to the LORD. When evening comes, there
will be light. On that day living water will
flow out from Jerusalem, half to the eastern sea
and half to the western sea, in summer and in
winter. The LORD will be king over the whole
earth. On that day there will be one LORD, and
his name the only name.
Topic 8 - Israel will repent when visited by
the Messiah Yeshua (Jesus)
Zechariah 12:10 "And I will
pour out on the house of David and the
inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and
supplication. They will look on me, the one they
have pierced, and they will mourn for him as one
mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly
for him as one grieves for a firstborn son. On
that day the weeping in Jerusalem will be great,
like the weeping of Hadad Rimmon in the plain of
Megiddo. The land will mourn, each clan by
itself, with their wives by themselves: the clan
of the house of David and their wives, the clan
of the house of Nathan and their wives, the clan
of the house of Levi and their wives, the clan
of Shimei and their wives, and all the rest of
the clans and their wives. "On that day a
fountain will be opened to the house of David
and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, to cleanse
them from sin and impurity.
Topic 9 - The Davidic Kingdom restored
to Israel through the Messiah
servant David will be king over them, and they
will all have one shepherd. They will follow my
laws and be careful to keep my decrees. They
will live in the land I gave to my servant
Jacob, the land where your fathers lived. They
and their children and their children's children
will live there forever, and David my servant
will be their prince forever.
Amos 9:11 "In that day I will
restore David's fallen tent. I will repair its
broken places, restore its ruins, and build it
as it used to be.
Micah 4:8 As for you, O
watchtower of the flock, O stronghold of the
Daughter of Zion, the former dominion will be
restored to you; kingship will come to the
Daughter of Jerusalem."
Topic 10 - A new temple of worship
will be built on Mount Zion upon Messiah's reign
Ezekial 43:6-7 While the man
was standing beside me, I heard someone speaking
to me from inside the temple. He said: "Son of
man, this is the place of my throne and the
place for the soles of my feet. This is where I
will live among the Israelites forever. The
house of Israel will never again defile my holy
name--neither they nor their kings--by their
prostitution and the lifeless idols of their
kings at their high places.
Ezekial 44:10 "'The Levites who
went far from me when Israel went astray and who
wandered from me after their idols must bear the
consequences of their sin. They may serve in my
sanctuary, having charge of the gates of the
temple and serving in it; they may slaughter the
burnt offerings and sacrifices for the people
and stand before the people and serve them.
Topic 11 - World wide celebration of the
Feast of Tablenacles (Succoth)
Zechariah 14:16-17 Then the
survivors from all the nations that have
attacked Jerusalem will go up year after year to
worship the King, the LORD Almighty, and to
celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles. If any of
the peoples of the earth do not go up to
Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD
Almighty, they will have no rain.
