Ethiopia's last Jews prepare for 'Promised Land'


RM28787601aYNet News: “Some 2,000 descendants and relatives of those Israel had identified as original Jews are set to join them in the Holy Land.  All that’s left of Ethiopia’s Jewish population, called the Falash Mura, or “wanderers” in Ethiopia’s Amharic language – is expected to move to Israel over the next 18 months (through June 2013), the end of an ancient chapter of Ethiopian history.”

Opinion: We first published the beginning of the last exodus of the Ethiopian Jews on October 29, 2012, which was the beginning of the final stages of aliya (return) from Ethiopia.

“For then I will restore to the peoples a pure language, That they all may call on the name of the Lord, To serve Him with one accord. From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia My worshipers, The daughter of My dispersed ones, Shall bring My offering” Zephaniah 3:10.

The revival of Hebrew as an everyday language began through the efforts of Eliezer Ben-Yehuda.  He developed the tools for reviving Hebrew as a spoken language. This began during the first mass emigration of Jews to the Holy Land known as the 1st Aliya (1882-1903).

Jimmy DeYoung said this: “The ancient Jewish prophet Ezekiel foretold of a time when the Lord  would bring all Jews from the four corners of the earth back to the  homeland, the land of the Jewish forefathers, Ezekiel 34. In fact, another Jewish prophet, Zephaniah wrote 2500 years ago that the Lord would bring the Ethiopian Jews back home as well, Zephaniah 3:10. The return of the Ethiopian Jews is only part of the entire Jewish world coming back to Israel and establishing a Jewish state which is foretold in Ezekiel 37:7-8. Out of 108 nations of the world over the last 100 years Jews have been coming home and the remaining Jewish worldwide community will do the very same thing in the near future.”

What a privilege to watch as God restores the nations to Himself.
