As followers of Israel's Messiah, have we asked the question that mattered so much to His chosen twelve? With olive groves serving as a backdrop, these fathers of our faith asked the King of Israel. "Lord, is it at this time You are restoring the kingdom to Israel?" (Act 1:6). Why did Y'shua's disciples, who had been trained by Him for more than three years, ask this particular question? Could it be because He had taught them to pray to our Father in Heaven, "Thy Kingdom come, on earth, as it is in Heaven"? (Matthew 6:10). Since we are a people dedicated to bringing Y'shua's Kingdom to this earth, we must not lose sight of the vision that burned in the hearts of His first disciples. As part of His "chosen people" (1 Peter 1:1; 2:9), we must not lose sight of what should be our ultimate goal. But, have we forgotten this important goal, even as we have lost sight or our heritage as part of the people of Israel? Could we be part of Ephraim/Israel--those so long ago blinded to the truth of their Israelite roots? (Genesis 48:19; Hosea 1-2; 8:8; Amos 9:9). Just as Judah is beginning to see the Messiah, is the veil likewise being lifted from our "partially blinded" Israelite eyes? Do we belong to Israel's "olive tree" in a greater way than we had previously imagined? (Isaiah 8:14; Romans 11:25; Jeremiah 31:18-19; 11:10, 16; 2: 18, 21). Is that why we are feeling a longing in our hearts for something more? If so, you will find that this exciting book will help your keep your eye on the goal, which is, the restoration of the Kingdom to the restored house of Israel.
