    RE: The return of Jerusalem to the Jewish People started a great revival.

    The Jesus movement.Revival was unique from all previous revivals, as Jews started coming to faith,in significant numbers. This was the birth of the modern Messianic Movement.

    Before 1967 there was not a single Messianic Jewish congregation in the world. Today more than 350 Messianic Jewish congregations,50 in Israel alone.

    The ministry of Jewish Voice alone has seen 75,000 Jewish People respond to the Gospel in the last decade of outreaches alone! Before, the number of Jews openly professing faith in Yeshua was very small, and of those nearly all would go to the local church,that changed after 1967.

    The Restoration of the Jewish people coming to faith in Yeshua all over the world, numbers not seen since the book of Acts.

    Today there are hundreds of thousands, if not a million, Jews in the U.S. who express some level of faith in Yeshua! God is opening long-blinded eyes and softening thousands of Jewish hearts just as the Scriptures promised.

    A sign the Last Days “Some of the people of Israel have hard hearts, but this will last only until the full number of Gentiles comes to Christ. (Rom 11:25 )

    What a turbulent history the land of Canaan (aka Israel, Judea, and Palestine) has had. But it is not singular in its transitions. It is typical. The history of mankind has been one of migrations and displacements of entire populations under a succession of rulers. Think of the Americas and the changes it has witnessed in the last half of a millennium.

    The Jews and the Palestinians are two rival groups with radically different interpretations of history, both arguing their cases all the way back to father Abraham as common ancestor. May all peoples learn to live together in peace and respect each other’s rich traditions.
