Aliyah - Return of Jewish people's to the Holy Land or 'the second gathering'
Aliyah is the opposite of 'Jews taken as prisoners to all countries' and indicates the close of 'the times of the gentiles'.As noted above
there were various 'buddings' to the olive tree. December of 1914 found some 11,000 displaced Aliyah refugees living in Alexandria
Egypt. They had either fled or been expelled from Palestine by Turkish administrators of Palestine. The USS Tennessee was one conduit
for swelling these numbers from Palestine. The younger refugees were eager to liberate Palestine from Turkish rule to realize the dream
of a Jewish homeland. Some of whom were later admitted to form a Jewish British Army unit, the Zion Mule Corps. Perhaps the name
most easily recognized from the ZMC was David Ben Gurion, 1st Israeli state president, who volunteered at rank of private.
Aliyah, From Wiki article
"First Aliyah (1882–1903) ... First Aliyah Between 1882 and 1903, approximately 35,000 Jews immigrated to the
south-western area of Syria, then a province of the Ottoman Empire. The majority, belonging to the Hovevei
Zion and Bilu movements, ... Second Aliyah (1904–1914) ... Second Aliyah Between 1904 and 1914, 40,000
Jews immigrated mainly from Russia to south-western Syria following pogroms and outbreaks of anti- Semitism
in that country. ... The suburb of Jaffa, Ahuzat Bayit, established at this time, grew into the city of Tel Aviv.
During this period, some of the underpinnings of an independent nation-state arose: The national language
Hebrew was revived; newspapers and literature written in Hebrew published; political parties and workers
organizations were established. The First World War effectively ended the period of the Second Aliyah. Third
Aliyah (1919–1923) ... Third Aliyah Between 1919 and 1923, 40,000 Jews, mainly from the Russian Empire

Balfour Declaration. ... the population of Jews reached 90,000 by the end of this ... Additional national
institutions arose: The Histadrut (General Labor Federation); an elected assembly; national council; and the
Haganah, the forerunner of the Israel Defense Forces."
What is the second advent?
It is the return of Christ in the air to gather his elect from the earth.
1 Thessalonians 4:15-18 (KJV) For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and
remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 16. For the Lord himself shall
descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in
Christ shall rise first: 17. Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the
clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Acts 1:10-11 (KJV) And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by
them in white apparel; 11. Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same
Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into
What means "the time of the Gentiles"
It is speculated, that ‘The times of the Gentiles’ is an important age within the two-thousand years of Messianic or Church Epoch. At the
start, Jesus Christ stated: 'I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel'. It was not until the stoning of Stephen, that the
gospel began to be declared to the gentiles. During the messianic age, Jesus said to Jerusalem inhabitants, 'You shall not see me
henceforth, till you shall say, Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord.” Perhaps at which point “the times of the gentiles” will be
complete and then begins the last stage of Messianic Age. This last stage will be when the everlasting gospel is declared by Jews to all
nations. The Sabbath rest of one thousand years is set apart from all other time as a day of holy rest. Apart from the Sabbath rest, all
days from Jesus Anointing until “time no longer” should be considered part of the Messianic or Church Age. After or when“time no
longer” starts is the same as for ever and ever. The thousand years are a separated specific time within total bible time of seven onethousand-year days. However time apart from the Sabbath of 1,000 years must be placed into some epoch. The proposed epoch for
determined time from Jesus anointing until “time no longer” is the Messianic Age, exempting the Sabbath of 1,000 years.
To better understand how the close of ‘The times of the Gentiles’ is approaching, ask yourself; are the heathen trampling over or
controlling Jerusalem?; or are Jews still taken as prisoners to all countries? If one cannot answer in the affirmative, then perhaps the
end of the gentiles times are upon us? And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations;
and then shall the end come (what end? the end of the Gentiles times for God is eternal)
Notice Romans 9:28, "For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the
Lord make upon the earth."
Since Jerusalem restoration to the Jew, there seems to be acceleration in spreading the gospel. Perhaps some crowning achievements
in making the gospel available to man are; improved transportation systems, satellite, fiber optics, the Internet, and mobile phone.
Presently, all but a few groups are out of reach, namely: illiterates and small language groups. Otherwise, it is safe to say all others have
access to some form of the gospel message. For example, Christ-mass is now a nearly universal holiday across all major world markets.
