The Negev, Aravah and all the way from Ashkelon to Eilat is a place destined for Salvation (Yeshua!), signs, wonders and miracles. The Promise in Isaiah 35 is very clear and it includes: Salvations, blind eyes opened, deaf ears unstopped, the lame healed and leaping like deer, mute people shouting for joy, a breaking of miracle waters in the dry desert, people walking in Holiness and the Restoration of the Sephardic Jews!

Today statistics say that there are about 60 million descendants of those Sephardic Jews that became Catholic and many of them are waking up to their roots – their Jewish Roots. They are also shaped in the likeness of their homeland, the Negev, and they are yearning to return to it and fulfill the Obadiah 20 Prophecy:

And the exiles from Yerushalayim in S’farad, will repossess the cities in the Negev. Obadiah 20b

A TREMENDOUS AND MIRACULOUS MOVE OF GOD IS ON ITS WAY TO THE NEGEV!
