“I will cause them to return to the land.” Jeremiah 30:3 shows us that this section of Jeremiah is speaking of the time after Armageddon when both Israel and Judah are returned to the land of Israel, as is foretold in many Scriptures. Judah returned from the Babylonian captivity, but Israel has not returned from the Assyrian captivity even to this day. Also, even after Judah returned to the land of Israel, they never possessed it as promised in the scriptures, and it was always under the control of others: the Persians, Greeks, Romans, etc. So this verse in Jeremiah is about the restoration of Israel in the Millennial Kingdom of Christ, and the verses associated with it, such as Jeremiah 30:4-7 are about the Great Tribulation that precedes the Millennial Kingdom. [For more information on Israel’s return to the Promised Land, see commentary on Jer. 32:37. For more on the coming kingdom of Christ on earth, see Appendix 3, “Christ’s Future Kingdom on Earth”].
