Spiritual Significance of DNA Testing
Throughout the writings of the prophets of the Old Testament, God promised that in the Last Days, He would restore the Jewish people. This promised restoration is both spiritual−through His promised Messiah−and physical,a regathering back to the Land of Israel. This restoration, beginning with the rebirth of the modern state of Israel and continuing on with the retaking of Jerusalem in 1967 and the current aliyah (immigration back to the Land) from all over the world is being fulfilled before our very eyes. In Isaiah 11:11, for example, God says that He will "recover the outcasts of Israel."
In that day, the Lord will reach out His hand a second time to reclaim the surviving remnant of His people from Assyria, from Lower Egypt, from Upper Egypt, from Cush, from Elam, from Babylonia, from Hamath and from the islands of the Mediterranean. −Isaiah 11:11
The recovery of the "Lost Tribes" scattered to the remote corners of the earth in places like Ethiopia, India, and Zimbabwe is part of this astounding Last Days prophecy unfolding. The advances in the science of DNA testing, which have already played a significant role in identifying this scattered remnant, will continue to play a more central role in the days ahead.
