For the record, we were both born under the government of the same presidency, you sooner than me. Though the circumstances are under cover of impending darkness, the situation is that these conversations are necessary in order to inform others of the immediacy of being comforters of Israel. For me, to a greater extent than I have experienced in my past studies of the Scriptural implications of what is being seen, the writings of all the prophets are being lit up like neon signs in Times Square and in such frequency that I cannot keep up with it all.

As I have mentioned before, most all prophetic writings in the Holy Writ have their near term and far term fulfilment and Isaiah is replete with the most concerning HaMashiach. Chapter 61 is one of my favorites, for Yeshua quoted the first part in His hometown visit; the second part will come with His return with the rod of iron with which He will rule Israel and the nations.

Then take the Minor Prophets; i.e. Jonah and Nahum: were the words about Nineveh in its modern context not requiring judgment against the perpetrators of ISIL as they threaten Israel?

Ezekiel indeed speaks to the 'aliyah,' echoing the Psalm 107:2-3, Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy; [And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south ], or Isaiah 43:3, 4, and 6; [For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Savior: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee. Since thou were precious in my sight, thou hast been honorable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life…… I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth]. The Holy One of Israel; is that not Yeshua Himself, speaking though Isaiah?

And further, Gaza prepares for the battle spoken of by Ezekiel in 38 and 39 is, by many who have studied this at length and do assert, the potentially lethal run-up to Zechariah's call for action on behalf Israel: Psalm 44:4,5 [Thou art my King, O God: command deliverances for Jacob. Through thee will we push down our enemies: through thy name will we tread them under that rise up against us ]; or Zephaniah 3:8 [Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy].

So we return to Isaiah 61:2; were we read both the first fulfilled portion and the promised second: [To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;] are we not, at this point in our lives, at the threshold of those times?

Behold, the LORD hath proclaimed unto the end of the world, Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy salvation cometh; behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him. Isaiah 62:11.
