I See... The Greatest Miracle

“Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that they shall no more say, The LORD liveth, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; But, The LORD liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land.” ( Jeremiah 23:7-8)

I am one of the first ones to admit that I have let the plethora of arcane Jewish rites and endless, unpronounceable names peppered throughout the Old Testament blind me to the prophetic grandeur of this sacred text. I am a little ashamed of the times I threatened unruly children in family nights with extended readings from the book of Numbers as punishments.

However, that all changed when I read the above scripture from Jeremiah about the greatest miracle of the latter days. Jeremiah implies in verse seven that until recently, Jehovah would be described as the Lord who led Israel's exodus out of Eygpt; that will be his reputation among the Saints. But then, the days will come, our days, when a new miracle will become associated with the Savior- leading the house of Israel again; the gathering of the Saints to their own lands. The greatest miracle of the Old Testament will be overtaken by the greatest miracle of the latter days- the restoration of the gospel and bringing lost souls unto Christ. Jeremiah saw this approximately 3,000 years ago; do you see it today?
