Netanyahu: Plans to airlift 2,000 Ethiopian Jews to Israel


Times of Israel: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday said the cabinet will vote next week on a plan to airlift 2,000 Ethiopian Jews to Israel.

The proposal, which will be raised on Monday, earmarks NIS 370 million ($109 million) for the mass immigration, the Prime Minister’s Office said.

“Half a year ago, I committed to bringing the rest of the Jews of Ethiopia [to Israel],” Netanyahu said in a statement from his office. Monday’s cabinet vote is a steppingstone “on the way to bringing the rest,” he added. “We have also funded NIS 80 million for the community’s activities. We stand by our commitments.” Read More …

Opinion: This prophetic story is one I have been tracking and posting about several times since 2012. There are two groups waiting to make aliyah:

  • Falash Mura is the name given to those of the Beta Israel community in Ethiopia who converted to Christianity (many by force) during the 19th and 20th centuries.
  • Ethiopian Jewish immigrants from the Beta Israel community are recognized as fully Jewish

While there are no reported cases of COVID-19 among them yet, the disease is spreading rapidly in Ethiopia

While this proposal will approve 2,000 to be brought over, there are approximately 14,000 waiting to immigrate.

Zephaniah 3:10

“From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia
My worshipers,
The daughter of My dispersed ones,
Shall bring My offering.” 

This prophecy is being fulfilled right before our eyes, but when I mention it at Christian small groups I typically get a blank look. Imagine trying to tell it to non-Christians.

The Ethiopian aliyah began in the 1970’s but has been in full swing for 8 years. Ethiopia is specifically named in Ezekiel 38:1-6 the KJV and NKJV as one of the attackers in the Gog Magog war.

The ESV and NIV include Ethiopia as part of the Cush nations (Ethiopia, Sudan, Somalia). Cush was a grandson of Noah who settled in the area and I believe is a more accurate description of what Ezekiel had in mind.

Either way, Ethiopia is part of the Gog Magog invasion and will face judgment. Ethiopia’s Jews are going home so that God can protect them.

“I will send fire on Magog and on those who live in safety in the coastlands, and they will know that I am the Lord.” Ezekiel 39:6

Ethiopia, Somalia, Sudan (Cush), Libya (Put) are on the coast.

God is bringing all His chosen back to the land so that when the great tribulation (spoken of by Jesus in Matthew 24:31) begins, His elect will be sheltered:

“Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.” Matthew 24:15-16

Mt. Seir (Petra), former home of Esau, has narrow passageways in and out making invasion of the forces of Antichrist impossible fulfilling Daniel 11:41 …

“He shall also enter the Glorious Land, and many countries shall be overthrown; but these shall escape from his hand: Edom, Moab, and the prominent people of Ammon.”
