“The Remnant of Israel Saved
1“At the same time,” says the Lord, “I will be the God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be My people.”
2Thus says the Lord:“The people who survived the sword
Found grace in the wilderness—Israel, when I went to give him rest.”
3The Lord has appeared of old to me, saying:“Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love;Therefore with loving kindness I have drawn you.
4Again I will build you, and you shall be rebuilt, O virgin of Israel!You shall again be adorned with your tambourines,
And shall go forth in the dances of those who rejoice.
5You shall yet plant vines on the mountains of Samaria;The planters shall plant and eat them as ordinary food.
6For there shall be a day when the watchmen will cry on Mount Ephraim, ‘Arise, and let us go up to Zion, To the Lord our God.’ ”
7For thus says the Lord:“Sing with gladness for Jacob, And shout among the chief of the nations; Proclaim, give praise, and say,‘O Lord, save Your people,The remnant of Israel!’
8Behold, I will bring them from the north country,
And gather them from the ends of the earth, Among them the blind and the lame,
The woman with child
And the one who labors with child, together; A great throng shall return there.
9They shall come with weeping,
And with supplications I will lead them. I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters,
In a straight way in which they shall not stumble; For I am a Father to Israel,
And Ephraim is My firstborn.
10“Hear the word of the Lord, O nations, And declare it in the isles afar off, and say, ‘He who scattered Israel will gather him, And keep him as a shepherd does his flock.’
11For the Lord has redeemed Jacob,
And ransomed him from the hand of one stronger than he.
12Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion, Streaming to the goodness of the Lord—For wheat and new wine and oil,
For the young of the flock and the herd;Their souls shall be like a well-watered garden, And they shall sorrow no more at all.
13“Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance,
And the young men and the old, together; For I will turn their mourning to joy,
Will comfort them,
And make them rejoice rather than sorrow.
14 I will satiate the soul of the priests with abundance,
And My people shall be satisfied with My goodness, says the Lord.
”Mercy on Ephraim
15Thus says the Lord:“A voice was heard in Ramah,
Lamentation and bitter weeping, Rachel weeping for her children, Refusing to be comforted for her children,
Because they are no more.”
16Thus says the Lord:“Refrain your voice from weeping, And your eyes from tears;
For your work shall be rewarded, says the Lord,
And they shall come back from the land of the enemy.
17There is hope in your future, says the Lord,
That your children shall come back to their own border.
18“I have surely heard Ephraim bemoaning himself:‘You have chastised me, and I was chastised,
Like an untrained bull;
Restore me, and I will return, For You are the Lord my God.
19Surely, after my turning, I repented; And after I was instructed,
I struck myself on the thigh; I was ashamed, yes, even humiliated,
Because I bore the reproach of my youth.’
20Is Ephraim My dear son? Is he a pleasant child?
For though I spoke against him, I earnestly remember him still;Therefore My heart yearns for him; I will surely have mercy on him, says the Lord.
21“Set up signposts, Make landmarks; Set your heart toward the highway,The way in which you went.Turn back, O virgin of Israel,
Turn back to these your cities.
22How long will you gad about,O you backsliding daughter?
For the Lord has created a new thing in the earth—A woman shall encompass a man.” – Jeremiah 31:1-22
I asked God this morning what He wanted to say to the nations, it took me a while to wind my thoughts don to concentrate but finally I looked to where my Bible opened – the remnant of Israel saved. I’ve been hearing this preached everywhere that God is preparing His remnant. Last night I was listening to Upperroom and one lady shared an amazing testimony about Israel I’ll link it below if you would like to hear it or yourself. Basically, Israel’s remnant are coming home!
I have highlighted verses that stand out to me personally and words God has lead me to through other prophets and prophetesses. I hope this speaks to you and enriches your life and all that the Lord has for our future.

God played me this song whilst writing this, I believe it was for me personally and for Israel (body of Christ). The song title is ‘Something Beautiful’ by Andrea Marie. Enjoy!
