The Greatest Awakening: Every couple of years I hear about a known figure in the faith predicting a coming Great Awakening in the Church and in the world with millions coming into a massive revival of faith. As much as that sounds wonderful, Yes! and amen, I do not expect to see that BEFORE I see an equal revival sweep Israel.

Only by disregarding the signs of the times can Christians believe they are going to have worldwide revival while Israel remains the same. You may not believe that, obviously many of you don't or you would be helping the Israeli Messianic Jews reach their people with the Good News of the Messiah's identity.

As the Apostle Paul told us (the Romans), 11:14-15 "... in the hope that I may provoke my own people to jealousy and save some of them. For if their rejection is the reconciliation of the world, what will their receiving of the kingdom of be if not life from the dead?"

Keep it context: Paul is talking about their rejection of the kingdom of the LORD meaning reconciliation extended of the world. He is not switching gears when he says that when Israel receives the kingdom by faith in Yeshua it is going to mean an outpouring of spiritual life to the whole world, not just to Israel. It is a given that Israel will experience life from the dead, but that's not what Paul is talking about: he is saying when Israel receives the kingdom of the LORD it will send parallel waves of revival across the world.

The acceptance by the Jews of Yeshua will mean life from dead for the world. That is not talking about the resurrection of the saints, that is talking about spiritual life from the dead for the unsaved in the nations.

There is a direct parallel of Israel coming to the knowledge of the LORD in the last days, and the church experiencing a worldwide revival like we have never seen before. If the Church wants a great revival to sweep our nations, we better start wanting it for Israel in earnest, so fulfilling our duty (Romans 15:27).— Donna Diorio
