YHVH’s Eternal Promise of the Restoration of the Kingdom to Israel

Daniel 7:27  “And sovereignty and kingship, and the splendours of all the kingdoms under heaven will be given to the people of the saints of the Most High. His sovereignty is an eternal sovereignty and every empire will serve and obey Him.”

Who are these ‘saints’.  The Hebrew word used here is ‘Kedoshim’ – holy ones or righteous ones.  This is defined in:

Exod. 19:3-6.   At Mt Sinai, on the Day of Shavuot (Pentecost) at the receiving of the Law which serves as foundation of the Covenant which YHVH made with the Israelites (12 Tribes),  YHVH said to Moses “Say this to the House of Jacob, declare this unto the sons of Israel: ‘…  if you obey My Voice and hold fast to My Covenant, you of all the nations will be My very Own, for all the earth is Mine.  I will count you a kingdom of Priests, a consecrated People “

The Covenant makes of Israel, God’s ‘Sacred Possession’ – a Holy or Sacred people (Refer also Isa. 4:3;  Jer. 2:3;  Deut. 7:6)

Zechariah 8:22,23  “Many people and great nations will come to seek YHVH in Jerusalem and to entreat His favour.  YHVH Sabaoth says this: In those days ten men of nations of every language will take a Jew by the sleeve and say: ‘We want to go with you, since we have learnt that God is with you.'”

Acts 1:6-7 Messiah was asked  “Master has the time come? Are you going to restore the Kingdom to Israel?  He replied: ‘It is not for you to know times or dates that the Father has decided by His own authority, but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you, and then you will be My witnesses not only in Jerusalem but throughout Judaea and Samaria, and indeed to the ends of the Earth.”
