Biblical Zionism and the Restoration of Israel
By Dr. Gavin Finley
“Hear O Israel,
The Lord our God
Is One Lord.” (Deut. 6:4)
So the present schism between “the Church” and Israel reflects a dysfunctional temporary state. The division is destined to be healed at the restoration of Israel at the climax of the age.
Moses and the Apostle Peter both speak of a Kingdom of Priests/a Royal Priesthood, and a Holy Nation this describing one single Elect/one Chosen People. (Ex.19:6, 1Pet. 2:9)
Moses and the apostle Peter did not speak of
“a royal kingdomand a holy priesthood”.
They said a “royalpriesthood
and a holynation.”
The kingdom attribute of royalty
is to be applied to the priesthood.
And the priestly attribute of holiness
is to be applied to the nation or kingdom.
The two seraphim above the Ark of the Covenant are two witnesses to the blood of atonement. The blood is applied to the mercy seat for Israel’s redemption and salvation.
Law and Grace
Justice and Mercy
Righteous and Holy
YHVH-God’s righteous rule and Torah and His mercy and grace must be held together harmoniously with complete and total unity and integrity .
The New Covenant is a personal work of God’s divine saving, guiding and empowering grace facilitated by the exercise of faith within the penitent surrendered individual human heart.
The New Covenant is announced in Jeremiah 32:31 where YHVH-God speaks of His law being written in the hearts of those who have come to know and to love Him.
A promised holy place in a holy land between the River of Egypt and the Euphrates River.
An innumerable multitude, a huge congregation of descendants.
Zechariah's Messianic Vision (Zechariah 2:14 ff.) The seven-branched golden Menorah is surrounded by two branches of two olive trees, representing the High Priest Yehoshua and the political leader Zerubbavel. These two leaders were involved in the restoration of the Temple in 516 BCE after the return from the Babylonian exile. The olive trees provide the Menorah with a continuous supply of fuel. This a messianic vision indicating the basis of Israel’s eventual peace in Messiah. "Not by Might, and Not by Power, but by my Spirit saith the Lord."
(The Cervera Bible, Spain circa 1300)
A Messiah of the Priesthood,
- Meshiachben Joseph
A Messiah of the Kingdom
- Meshiachben David
“Seventy weeks are determined
1. for your (holy) people
2. For your holy city . . . . . “
The word of the Lord came to me: 16 "Son of man, take a stick of wood and write on it, 'Belonging to Judah and the Israelites associated with him.' Then take another stick of wood, and write on it, 'Ephraim's stick, belonging to Joseph and all the house of Israel associated with him.' 17 Join them together into one stick so that they will become one in your hand.
