Elpis Israel: p 422 In another verse of this chapter (Ez 38), …… it is written : "And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land. " This testimony shows that there will have been a gathering of the Jews to some extent before Gogue invades their land; and that this gathering is subsequent to a long desolation of the country. Hence, those acquainted with Jewish history will perceive directly that the prediction has not been fulfilled; but is yet in the future, and belongs to "the time of the end, " which is synchronous with "the latter days. "
Elpis Israel: p 440 The restoration of the Jews is a work of time, and will require between fifty and sixty years to accomplish. The truth is, there are two stages in the restoration of the Jews, the first is before the battle of Armageddon; and the second, after it; but both premillennial. God has said, "I will save the tents of Judah first. " This is the first stage of restoration.

Elpis Israel: p 441 There is, then, a partial and primary restoration of Jews before the manifestation, which is to serve as the nucleus, or basis, of future operations in the restoration of the rest of the tribes after he has appeared in the kingdom. The pre-adventual colonization of Palestine will be on purely political principles; and the Jewish colonists will return in unbelief of the Messiahship of Jesus, and of the truth as it is in him. They will emigrate thither as agriculturists and traders, in the hope of ultimately establishing their commonwealth, but more immediately of getting rich in silver and gold by commerce with India, and in cattle and goods by their industry at home under the efficient protection of the British power.
Ezekiel 37: The Liberation of the People 10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army. 11 Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts. 12 Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.
Ezekiel 37 v 6: “I will put sinews on you and bring flesh upon you, cover you with skin and put breath in you; and you shall live. Then you shall know that I am the LORD”

What is Desirable about Israel?
1 oth Israeli Nobel Prize, May 2011 In 1982, Shechtman discovered what are now called "quasicrystals" — atoms arranged in patterns that seemed forbidden by nature. "I was thrown out of my research group. They said I brought shame on them with what I was saying, " he recalled. "I never took it personally. I knew I was right and they were wrong. " 19% of Nobel Prize recipients have been Jewish, though Jews make up 0. 2% of the World’s population
Israel: Top for Innovation Israel leads the world in: • Number of patents per capita • Number of start-up companies • Venture capital investment • Third highest number of companies listed on Wall St stock exchange (after US and Canada) • Number 6 on world for innovation (ahead of UK, Germany, France, China + India) “For thousands of years, a Jewish mother wanted her son to become a doctor. Now she wants him to be a start-up founder”
Reasons for Israel’s Success • Pure Creativity (5 proposals for new start-ups every day) • Highly educated population • Strong Research Institutions (Weizmann Institute, Hebrew University) • 1 M Jewish immigrants from former Soviet Union: bristling with science degrees, having risk taking mentality • Army trains people to work in teams and solve problems • Army has encouraged innovation to help outwit numerically superior enemies (many big Israeli companies have spun out of military) • Government has been funding innovation for 20 years

Israel’s Biotechnology • The pace of innovation, development and growth in Israel’s biotechnology sector is unparalleled. • Israel’s biotech industry is the most aggressive in the world, with more start-ups per capita then any other country. • Its 180 biotech companies – each built on a combination of academic excellence, a highly-skilled workforce, cutting-edge technological inventiveness and entrepreneurial daring • Blockbuster prescription drugs sold worldwide that treat multiple sclerosis, cancer, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases derive from Israeli biotechnology. • Israel creates more medical devices per capita than any other country, and its life sciences exports earn more than $3 billion a year.
The Origin of the Israeli Biotech Industry The Great British Public was told t collect as many conkers as possible- yet knew nothing about their importance! The Ministry placed an ad in The Times (July 26, 1917): "chestnut seeds, not the green husks, are required by the Government for the Ministry of Munitions. The nuts will replace cereals which have been necessary for the production of an article of great importance in the prosecution of the War".

Deuteronomy 8 7 For the LORD thy God bringeth thee into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and depths that spring out of valleys and hills; 8 A land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig trees, and pomegranates; a land of oil olive, and honey; 9 A land wherein thou shalt eat bread without scarceness, thou shalt not lack any thing in it; a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills thou mayest dig brass. 10 When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the LORD thy God for the good land which he hath given thee. 11 Beware that thou forget not the LORD thy God…. .

Obadiah 17 But upon mount Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions. 18 And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau for stubble… 19 And they of the south shall possess the mount of Esau; and they of the plain the Philistines: and they shall possess the fields of Ephraim, and the fields of Samaria: and Benjamin shall possess Gilead. 20 And the captivity of this host of the children of Israel shall possess that of the Canaanites, even unto Zarephath; and the captivity of Jerusalem, which is in Sepharad, shall possess the cities of the south. 21 And saviours shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau; and the kingdom shall be the LORD’S

Watch: Luke 21 28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh…. 34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. 35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
