Question: Will God bring the American Jews back to Israel? |

Question: In light of the biblical doctrine of regathering the Jewish people to the Land of Israel, what about the 5 million or so Jews still living in the US? Would God call them home? If so, when—before the Tribulation or before the Millennial Kingdom? 

Response: The Lord made many promises to Israel concerning their regathering to the land: “I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries [our emphasis] and...bring you into your own land” (Ezekiel:36:24). “I will gather them out of all countries, whither I have driven them...and I will bring them again unto this place, and...cause them to dwell safely” (Jeremiah:32:37). “Then shall they know that I am the Lord their God, which caused them to be led into captivity...: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there” (Ezekiel:39:28). “I will surely assemble, O Jacob, all of thee; I will surely gather the remnant of Israel; I will put them together as the sheep of the midst of their fold” (Micah:2:12).

It is clear that the Lord will without fail gather “the remnant” out of “all countries.” It is key that the gathering will include the “remnant” of Israel. We know from Scripture that those of Israel shall yet suffer great loss as time comes to the end. “It shall come to pass, that...two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein” (Zechariah:13:8). Thus the remnant of Jews outside of Israel will return at some point. As anti-Semitism continues to rise in all nations, even the temporary relief brought by the current Trump administration will change to a hatred that has existed throughout history. This increased persecution has proven to be a motivation for the exodus of Jews from Europe and Islamic nations.
