Several years ago I was attending a OneThing gathering in Jerusalem. My friend who has been a prophet to me for 33 years, had two striking dreams during the few days we were there.

In the first dream TheCall received a phone call from 4 Ruths—Ruth Prince, Derek Prince’s wife, Ruth Graham, Billy Grahams wife, Ruth Heflin, a prophet to Israel, and Ruth of Ruth and Boaz. In the second dream, Dutch Sheets and I were calling for a global spiritual Aliyah. I believe these two dreams are one and the same. There is coming a movement of the gentile Ruths who will turn their hearts toward Israel and to the Jewish Messianic community and they will declare, “Your people shall be my people, and your God shall be my God.”

We believe the dream is an invitation for a united global calling to the Gentile nations for spiritual Aliyah. We can’t “immigrate back” to Israel because we are not Jews, but we can turn our hearts back to Israel in a corresponding “spiritual Aliyah”. The scripture is true, “Where your heart is, there will your treasure be also.” It seems clear that a turning of the hearts of the Gentile Church to the Messianic Apostolic community will have its practical application in a massive outpouring of finances, laying their treasure at the apostle’s feet, just as Ruth turned her heart toward Boaz of the Messianic line, and laid herself at his feet.

In the releasing of this kind of blessing to the seed of Abraham, a corresponding multiplied blessing for the fulfillment of the Great Commission will boomerang back upon the gentile church.

“For I will bless those who bless you and I will curse those who curse you.”

Just as Cornelius’ gifts to the Messianic community opened up a door to the gentiles, so too this boomerang blessing will finance the fulfillment of “every tribe and every tongue” receiving the witness of the Gospel. I first experienced this principal of boomerang blessing when several years ago in New Jersey an offering was being taken for the Jewish people and I joyfully gave 1,000 dollars in faith that I would also be blessed. The following day a completely unexpected check came in and I was blessed with $7,000! Seven is the fullness of blessing. The gentile gift to the Messianic community will help finance the final evangelist thrust of the Gospel to the Jews leading to the fulfillment of Romans 11:12,15. This seemingly small revelation, if stewarded, could lead to a massive worldwide outpouring of generosity from the gentile world to fulfill the word of Isaiah, “The wealth of the nations shall be brought to you.” This could multiply and thrust forth a new Apostolic Era for the finishing of the task and bringing back the King.
