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."
