“I myself will gather what remains of my flock from all the countries where I have driven them and bring them back to their homes, and they will be fruitful and increase their numbers. I will appoint shepherds over them who will shepherd them; then they will no longer be afraid or disgraced; and none will be missing,” says Adonai.” (Jeremiah 23:3-4, Complete Jewish Bible)
On January 3, 2018 I woke up remembering a dream the Lord had given me that night. I try to remember dreams when He gives them to me, but often I don’t, as much as I try later. But this one I did recall.
In the dream, I was at an airport and I could see labels marked “Aliyah” (immigration to Israel). The labels were being used to tag luggage so that each piece could be properly claimed later upon arrival at the traveler’s destination. I could see it was a Canadian airport, and these were American Jews passing through the airport system. Israel was the final stopping point for them.
There were so many of them needing the label “Aliyah” that the airport ran out of the tags. I can’t recall what the airport personnel did at that point, but it didn’t seem to stop the movement of the people.
When thinking about this later, and after sending a brief message to a friend in Israel who is involved in aliyah for Jews, I believe the Lord is ramping up the timetable for Jews around the world to make aliyah – to return to Israel as their homeland. I believe it will especially be important for American Jews to seriously consider this move for themselves and their families in these coming years. I am not sharing this out of fear, but out of the sense that it is certainly now time.
The time has come to move. The Lord has prepared the way for them.
The phrase “more quickly” comes to mind, as the urgent sense of timing is more important now that it has ever been. Sometimes you know or sense something is to be done, and you sit on it for a while, either out of procrastination, ignorance or unwillingness to acknowledge it. I sense that that time for these doing so is coming to an end. They must be willing to act, and then do so. Otherwise, it will not be an option, or it will cost more in money and effort than it would have if obedience had taken place earlier.
I pray for the Lord’s provision and protection to be with them as they heed His voice.
Shalom and ahava (peace and love in Hebrew).
