Israel in Prophecy

"I think we do not attach sufficient importance to the restoration of the Jews.  We do not think enough of it. But certainly, if there is anything promised in the Bible it is this.  I imagine that you cannot read the Bible without seeing clearly that there is to be an actual restoration of the children of Israel...May that happy day soon come!"
                      --Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892)  
 
[C. H. Spurgeon, The C. H. Spurgeon Collection, Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit, I, no. 28, 1855 (Albany, Oregon: Ages Software, 1998), 382.]
