Baruch haba b’Shem Adonai

Baruch haba b’Shem Adonai
(Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord)

There will be no peace in Israel until that time that most Jews are saying; Baruch haba b’Shem Adonai (or, Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord).

Israel today is a nation composed of Jews from 125 different lands speaking 85 different languages. The Jews are being gathered just as God said He would. Additionally, He restored the Hebrew language, just as He said He would in Jeremiah 31:23. As was predicted in Jeremiah 16, Deuteronomy 30:1-5, Ezekiel 34, 36, 37, and by Jesus (Yeshua) in in the parable of the fig tree (Luke 21: 29-30). Israel emerged in 1948 a miracle of history. Never before has a nation been destroyed, its people dispersed to the ends of the earth, and then, nearly two thousand years later, re-gathered to their homeland and re-established as a nation.

The Lord also told us that this return to the land was part of a sequence that would conclude with the Messiah’s return and the salvation of all Israel. That last part of God’s Plan hasn’t happened yet.

Israel today is a mostly secular country, where those who believe fervently in God and the Bible are looked at as oddballs. But God even prophesied that would be the case. God said through the prophet Hosea (Chapter 3) that He would first bring the Jews back to the land. Then in Hosea 6:3 God spoke about the return of the Messiah and the outpouring of His Spirit by saying; “… and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.”

There is no peace in Israel, and there will be no peace until the day the Prince of Peace and Lord of Lords returns again from the spot he departed from — on the Mount of Olives; when Israel is restored and filled with Messianic Jews. There will be no peace in Israel until that time that most Jews are saying; Baruch haba b’Shem Adonai (or, Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord). God anticipated the reaction from the nations surrounding Israel when they returned. In Ezekiel 36:2-5 we see that even though the nations surrounding Israel would claim possession of the Land of Israel for themselves, and try to drive out the rightful Jewish inhabitants, God repudiates the claims of these nations. In Joel 3:1-2, God warned us that the land of Israel would first be divided before the Lord’s return:

For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.
