Israel will Become a Nation in a Day,
Literally in the Spring

Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Can a land be born in one day? Can a nation be brought forth all at once? As soon as Zion travailed, she also brought forth her sons.

Now the LORD said to Abram, “Go forth from your country, And from your relatives And from your father’S house, To the land which I will show you (Eretz Israel, which includes all the land from the Nile to the Euphrates); And I will make you a great nation, And I will bless you, And make your name great; And so you shall be a blessing; And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.”

Ezekiel 37:9-28 Show Context
Then He said to me, “Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD, “Come from the four winds (all the world), O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they come to life.’” (come back to life) So I prophesied as He commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they came to life and stood on their feet, an exceedingly great army. (Israel is to have an exceedingly powerful army.) Then He said to me, “Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel; behold, they say, ‘Our bones are dried up and our hope has perished. We are completely cut off.’ (Killed and burned by Hitler.) “Therefore prophesy and say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD, “Behold, I will open your graves and cause you to come up out of your graves, My people; and I will bring you into the land of Israel. (the “dry bones” come together alive in Eretz Israel) Then you will know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves and caused you to come up out of your graves (come back to Eretz Israel alive), My people. I will put My Spirit (Ruach HaKodesh) within you and you will come to life (be restored as a nation), and I will place you on your own land (Eretz Israel). Then you will know that I, the LORD , have spoken and done it,” declares the LORD.’”
   The word of the LORD came again to me saying, “And you, son of man, take for yourself one stick and write on it, ‘For Judah and for the sons of Israel, his companions’ (the tribes of Judah and Benjamin, the southern kingdom); then take another stick and write on it, ‘For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim and all the house of Israel, his companions.’ (the northern kingdom, the remaining ten tribes) Then join them for yourself one to another into one stick, that they may become one in your hand. (all twelve tribes united as one nation) When the sons of your people speak to you saying, ‘Will you not declare to us what you mean by these?’ say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD, “Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim (the northern kingdom, the ten northern tribes), and the tribes of Israel, his companions; and I will put them with it, with the stick of Judah (the tribes of Judah and Benjamin, the southern kingdom), and make them one stick, and they will be one in My hand.’” (all twelve tribes united as one nation)
  “The sticks on which you write will be in your hand before their eyes. Say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD , “Behold, I will take the sons of Israel from among the nations where they have gone (all the tribes in the Diaspora), and I will gather them from every side (from every nation on earth) and bring them into their own land (Eretz Israel); and I will make them one nation in the land (Eretz Israel), on the mountains of Israel; and one king (Yeshua HaMashiach ben David) will be king for all of them; and they will no longer be two nations and no longer be divided into two kingdoms. They will no longer defile themselves with their idols, or with their detestable things, or with any of their transgressions (they will return to God and to His Torah); but I will deliver them from all their dwelling places in which they have sinned, and will cleanse them. And they will be My people, and I will be their God. My servant David (Mashiach ben David) will be king over them, and they will all have one shepherd (Yeshua HaMashiach ben David); and they will walk in My ordinances and keep My statutes and observe them (they will return to God and to His Torah). They will live on the land (Eretz Israel) that I gave to Jacob My servant, in which your fathers lived; and they will live on it, they, and their sons and their sons’ sons, forever; and David My servant (Yeshua HaMashiach ben David) will be their prince forever.
   I will make a covenant of peace with them; it will be an everlasting covenant with them. And I will place them and multiply them, and will set My sanctuary (the restored Holy Temple) in their midst forever. My dwelling place (Tabernacle, or Temple) also will be with them; and I will be their God, and they will be My people. And the nations will know that I am the LORD who sanctifies Israel, when My sanctuary is in their midst forever.”’”

You shall draw a line from Mount Hor to the Lebo-hamath, and the termination of the border shall be at Zedad; and the border shall proceed to Ziphron, and its termination shall be at Hazar-enan.

Thus says the Lord GOD, “This {shall be} the boundary by which you shall divide the land for an inheritance among the twelve tribes of Israel; Joseph {shall have} two portions. You shall divide it for an inheritance, each one equally with the other; for I swore to give it to your forefathers, and this land shall fall to you as an inheritance. This {shall be} the boundary of the land: on the north side, from the Great Sea {by} the way of Hethlon, to the entrance of Zedad; Hamath, Berothah, Sibraim, which is between the border of Damascus and the border of Hamath; Hazer-hatticon, which is by the border of Hauran. The boundary shall extend from the sea {to} Hazar-enan {at} the border of Damascus, and on the north toward the north is the border of Hamath. This is the north side.
   The east side, from between Hauran, Damascus, Gilead and the land of Israel, {shall be} the Jordan; from the {north} border to the eastern sea you shall measure. This is the east side.
   The south side toward the south {shall extend} from Tamar as far as the waters of Meribath-kadesh, to the brook {of Egypt and} to the Great Sea. This is the south side toward the south.
   The west side {shall be} the Great Sea, from the {south} border to a point opposite Lebo-hamath. This is the west side.
   So you shall divide this land among yourselves according to the tribes of Israel. You shall divide it by lot for an inheritance among yourselves and among the aliens who stay in your midst, who bring forth sons in your midst. And they shall be to you as the native-born among the sons of Israel; they shall be allotted an inheritance with you among the tribes of Israel. And in the tribe with which the alien stays, there you shall give {him} his inheritance,” declares the Lord GOD .

[The Priests (Sons of Zadok) and Temple Grounds:] And beside the border of Judah, from the east side to the west side, shall be the allotment which you shall set apart, 25,000 {cubits} in width, and in length like one of the portions, from the east side to the west side; and the sanctuary shall be in the middle of it. The allotment that you shall set apart to the LORD {shall be} 25,000 {cubits} [7.1 miles*] in length and 10,000 [2.84 miles*] in width. The holy allotment shall be for these, {namely} for the priests, toward the north 25,000 {cubits [7.1 miles*]  in length,} toward the west 10,000 [2.84 miles*] in width, toward the east 10,000 [2.84 miles*] in width, and toward the south 25,000 [7.1 miles*] in length; and the sanctuary of the LORD shall be in its midst. {It shall be} for the priests who are sanctified of the sons of Zadok, who have kept My charge, who did not go astray when the sons of Israel went astray as the Levites went astray. It shall be an allotment to them from the allotment of the land, a most holy place, by the border of the Levites.

[The Levites:] Alongside the border of the priests the Levites {shall have} 25,000 {cubits} [7.1 miles*] in length and 10,000 [2.84 miles*] in width. The whole length {shall be} 25,000 {cubits} [7.1 miles*] and the width 10,000 [2.84 miles*]. Moreover, they shall not sell or exchange any of it, or alienate this choice {portion} of land; for it is holy to the LORD .

[City Commons:] The remainder, 5,000 {cubits} [1.42 miles*] in width and 25,000 [7.1 miles*] in length, shall be for common use for the city, for dwellings and for open spaces; and the city shall be in its midst.

[Farm Land in the City:] The remainder of the length alongside the holy allotment shall be 10,000 {cubits} [2.84 miles*] toward the east and 10,000 [2.84 miles*] toward the west; and it shall be alongside the holy allotment. And its produce shall be food for the workers of the city. The workers of the city, out of all the tribes of Israel, shall cultivate it. The whole allotment {shall be} 25,000 [7.1 miles*] by 25,000 {cubits} [7.1 miles*]; you shall set apart the holy allotment, a square, with the property of the city.

[The Prince:] The remainder {shall be} for the prince, on the one side and on the other of the holy allotment and of the property of the city; in front of the 25,000 {cubits}  [7.1 miles*] of the allotment toward the east border and westward in front of the 25,000 [7.1 miles*] toward the west border, alongside the portions, {it shall be} for the prince. And the holy allotment and the sanctuary of the house shall be in the middle of it. Exclusive of the property of the Levites and the property of the city, {which} are in the middle of that which belongs to the prince, {everything} between the border of Judah and the border of Benjamin shall be for the prince.

[Benjamin:] As for the rest of the tribes: from the east side to the west side, Benjamin, one {portion.}

And beside the border of Gad, at the south side toward the south, the border shall be from Tamar to the waters of Meribath-kadesh, to the brook {of Egypt,} to the Great Sea. This is the land which you shall divide by lot to the tribes of Israel for an inheritance, and these are their {several} portions,” declares the Lord GOD .

These are the exits of the city: on the north side, 4,500 {cubits} [1.28 miles*] by measurement, shall be the gates of the city, named for the tribes of Israel, three gates toward the north: the gate of Reuben, one; the gate of Judah, one; the gate of Levi, one. On the east side, 4,500 {cubits} [1.28 miles*],  shall be three gates: the gate of Joseph, one; the gate of Benjamin, one; the gate of Dan, one.
