What Else Converted Israel Will Do

When the Lord comes all Israel living in that day will be saved, except
the apostates (Ezekiel xx:38), those who have worshipped the Beast and
followed Anti-christ. "They shall look upon Him Whom they have
pierced, and mourn for Him" (Zech. xii:10). This converted nation will
be a kingdom of priests, and become the nucleus of that Kingdom into
which the nations converted during the Tribulation, and all nations
throughout the Millennium, will be gathered. Beautiful are the words
of Isaiah, speaking of that time (Isa. lxi:6-9): Then the Gentiles
shall come to the light which has risen among that nation, and kings to
their brightness. Read the sixtieth chapter of Isaiah. In fact the
entire prophetic Word witnesses to the fact that Israel, so long a
curse among the nations, will be a blessing to all the nations.

It seems from another passage that when the Millennium begins with the
coming of the King, that certain portions of the earth must yet be
reached, and that work is to be done among different nations to make
known the great events which have taken place. And God will use Israel
for this work. Isa. lxvi:19: "And I will set a sign among them, and I
will send those that escape of them unto the nations, to Tarshish, Pul,
and Lud, that draw the bow, to Tubal, and Javan, to the isles afar off,
that have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall
declare my glory among the Gentiles." The last sentence of this
prophecy, "they shall declare my glory among the Gentiles," tells us
that they will have a work to do after His glory has been manifested.
There is another passage in Zechariah which also speaks of how they
will be used, Zech. viii:23: "Thus saith the Lord of hosts: In those
days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all
languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that
is a Jew saying, We will go with you, for we have heard that God is
with you." This necessarily also comes after the Lord has come and set
up His Kingdom.

Israel will therefore be definitely used in bringing the nations of the
earth into the Kingdom. In that coming Kingdom, converted,
Spirit-filled Israel will be the head of all nations, and be used in
world-wide ministry and blessing. Then will be fulfilled what the Lord
said through Isaiah: "Ye shall be named the priests of the Lord; men
shall call you ministers of our God; ye shall eat the wealth of the
nations, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves." What blessing
is in store for the whole world, when that time comes may also be
learned from Rom. xi:12-15. Let all true believers pray as never
before, "Even so, come Lord Jesus."
