editor 26 March 2014

By David Howard Sudlow.. The Bible tells us the restoration of the Jewish people to their historic land of Palestine is to happen in progressive stages; one previous to the second coming of Christ; and the other following that great event. The first will be a partial restoration and the second will be total by the mighty hand of God. We have seen the first stage come to pass in the modern State of Israel.
