YNet News: “Preparatory program helps military-bound Ethiopian-Israelis overcome typical hurdles such as cultural bias to obtain the coveted roles they really want; these ambitious young women spend a year preparing for their service.”
Opinion: The date was August 28, 2013 when I came across the headline on The Times of Israel that totally blew me away: “After 30 Years, Final Ethiopian Flights arrive in Israel.”
“It was the closing of a circle. Not just the one that opened 30 years ago, when the first Ethiopian Jews were airlifted to Israel from refugee camps in Sudan in a brazen Israeli-CIA covert operation. But the closing of a deeper, more profound circle: the return to Zion. The journey home.”
Our commentary that day:
“Today we are witnessing the fulfillment of Bible prophecy: “From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia My worshipers, The daughter of My dispersed ones, Shall bring My offering” Zephaniah 3:10.
The 2nd Diaspora (scattering) of the Jewish people that began in 70 AD is coming to an end. Ezekiel 39:22 prophesied that the whole house of Israel will come home to the land when Messiah Yeshua returns for 1000 years of peace.”
But there is more that I may not have realized at that time. Ethiopia is one of the 7 nations in the war of Gog and Magog: “ Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya are with them, all of them with shield and helmet” Ezekiel 38:5
God has promised vengeance: “And I will send fire on Magog and on those who live in security in the coastlands. Then they shall know that I am the Lord.” Ezekiel 39:6
God is bringing His chosen ones out of the nations before passing judgment on the invasion force.
