God spoke through the prophets and called Israel his bride (Isaiah 54:5, Jeremiah 3:14, 31:32). God was prophetically declaring Israel’s destiny to be His bride. Yet, in the book of Lamentations, Jeremiah prophesied of the destruction of Jerusalem and the people of Judea being taken captive by the Babylonians. H described Jerusalem as a widow.
Lamentations 1:1 NKJV "How lonely sits the city that was full of people! How like a widow is she, who was great among the nations! The princess among the provinces has become a slave! "
Through the years Israel has been dispersed through the nations and brought back to their land, like the dry bones described in Ezekiel but they have yet to reach their destiny to become the bride.
What will it take for this to happen and who will be instrumental in helping Israel fulfil her prophetic destiny?
