are scattered today; they are under divine discipline;
they will remain scattered. God
promised that HE would restore them. When Christ returns
to earth, He will regather Israel (Isa. 35:3-10; Ezek. 20:34).
Only Jesus Christ can break the fifth cycle of discipline.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow
of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your
rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
Ps. 23 :4
