The Returning Remnant of Israel - Now Think On This by Steve Martin

The Returning Remnant of Israel
 Steve Martin

“A remnant will return, the remnant of Jacob, to the mighty God.” (Isaiah 10:21, NASU)


Dear loved ones and those who love the good people of Israel,

This special Now Think On This writing shares the love the Lord has for His chosen ones, the Jews. All who call upon the Name of the Lord have been chosen, but because He is the Lord on High, God Almighty, He has clearly chosen the Jews to be His light to the nations, the ones who will show Himself strong on their behalf. (No Christian church Replacement Theology here!)

“So now Adonai says — he formed me in the womb to be his servant, to bring Ya‘akov back to him, to have Isra’el gathered to him, so that I will be honored in the sight of Adonai, my God having become my strength — he has said, “It is not enough that you are merely my servant to raise up the tribes of Ya‘akov and restore the offspring of Isra’el. I will also make you a light to the nations, so my salvation can spread to the ends of the earth.” (Isaiah 49:5-6, Complete Jewish Bible)

Though at times they have walked in blindness, He has promised to reveal Himself to them. Simply because He is the God of Love. As Christians, we have had the mercy of the Lord upon us, and have been grafted into the olive tree upon belief in Jesus (Yeshua). But that acceptance of His mercy towards us also hasn’t replaced His heart for the Jews. He is still drawing them after Himself, that they too might see and know of the Savior, Yeshua Himself. For He is HaMashiach, the Messiah.


“For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written:

"The Deliverer will come out of Zion,
And He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob;
For this is My covenant with them,
When I take away their sins."

Concerning the gospel they are enemies for your sake, but concerning the election they are beloved for the sake of the fathers. For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. For as you were once disobedient to God, yet have now obtained mercy through their disobedience, even so these also have now been disobedient, that through the mercy shown you they also may obtain mercy. For God has committed them all to disobedience, that He might have mercy on all.” (Romans 11:25-32 NKJV)

The Lord is fulfilling His promise, to bring the Jews back to their Promised Land, the Land of Ysra’el, the land belonging to them. Abraham received the promise, and the Lord has not withdrawn it.

“The Lord appeared to Abram and said, " To your descendants I will give this land." So he built an altar there to the Lord who had appeared to him. Then he proceeded from there to the mountain on the east of Bethel, and pitched his tent, with Bethel on the west and Ai on the east; and there he built an altar to the Lord and called upon the name of the Lord. Abram journeyed on, continuing toward the Negev.” (Genesis 12:7-9, NASU)

The Living God of Israel has said He will bring them back, and He is, right before our eyes in these last days, the End of Days.

“Now in that day the remnant of Israel, and those of the house of Jacob who have escaped, will never again rely on the one who struck them, but will truly rely on the Lord, the Holy One of Israel.

21 A remnant will return, the remnant of Jacob, to the mighty God.

22 For though your people, O Israel, may be like the sand of the sea, only a remnant within them will return; A destruction is determined, overflowing with righteousness.

23 For a complete destruction, one that is decreed, the Lord God of hosts will execute in the midst of the whole land.

24 Therefore thus says the Lord God of hosts, "O My people who dwell in Zion, do not fear the Assyrian who strikes you with the rod and lifts up his staff against you, the way Egypt did. 

25 "For in a very little while My indignation against you will be spent and My anger will be directed to their destruction."

26 The Lord of hosts will arouse a scourge against him like the slaughter of Midian at the rock of Oreb; and His staff will be over the sea and He will lift it up the way He did in Egypt.

27 So it will be in that day, that his burden will be removed from your shoulders and his yoke from your neck, and the yoke will be broken because of fatness.” (Isaiah 10:20-27, NASU)

We stand with the people of Israel, in prayer support, supplications and decrees of goodness over them. We declare in boldness that it is their God, HaShem, Who is doing this on their behalf. He is, and will continue to, reveal His ahava (love) and grace to them, as He draws them to Himself.

Until He returns in glory, may they see, on this day and every day, our hearts of love and desire for goodness and mercy be upon them. May they see and understand the love from their brothers and sisters, those of us who as true believers have called ourselves Christians, the love of Yeshua.

“To him, the one who loves us, who has freed us from our sins at the cost of his blood, who has caused us to be a kingdom, that is, cohanim for God, his Father — to him be the glory and the rulership forever and ever. Amen. Look! He is coming with the clouds! Every eye will see him, including those who pierced him; and all the tribes of the Land will mourn him.

Yes! Amen! “I am the ‘A’ and the ‘Z,’” says Adonai, God of heaven’s armies, the One who is, who was and who is coming.” (Revelation 1:5-8, Complete Jewish Bible)

Even so, Maranatha. Come Lord Yeshua and reveal Yourself to Your brethren.

Shabbat Shalom and ahava (love in Hebrew).
