Restoration

Zechariah contains more details about Israel’s restoration. Not merely the return from Babylon after the 70 years of desolation, but the return from mystery Babylon to new heights of fame. “The name written on her forehead was a mystery: babylon the great the mother of prostitutes and of the abominations of the earth.” Revelation 17:5

From Zechariah:
“I will signal for them
and gather them in.
Surely I will redeem them;
they will be as numerous as before.” Zechariah 10:8
As numerous as in David and Solomon’s time? Yes.
“Though I sow them among the nations,
they will remember Me in the distant lands;
they and their children will live and return.” Zechariah 10:9
Not merely did the exiles return around 454 BC, but all the Israelites of history from all lands the went to will rise from the grave to return to Israel. “And in this way all Israel will be saved, as it is written:

The Liberator will come from Zion;
He will turn away godlessness from Jacob.
And this will be My covenant with them
when I take away their sins.” Romans 11:26-27

“I will bring them back from the land of Egypt
and gather them from Assyria.
I will bring them to the land of Gilead
and to Lebanon,
but it will not be enough for them.” Zechariah 10:10

There will not be enough room for them! The borders of Israel will expand greatly!
