INTRODUCTION:

This page has Scriptural references that are the hallmarks of the restoration of Israel.  Many people think or feel that Israel was returned to the land in 1947.  I do not see where Scripture supports that claim.  There are a good number of prophecies which detail what will happen and what the Holy Land will be like after the return of YHWH's people to the land.  It is these details that I am trying to collect on this page.
