Ezekiel 11:14 Again the word of the Great Spirit came unto me, saying, 15 Son of man, thy brethren, even thy brethren, the men of thy kindred, and all the house of Akobe wholly, are they unto whom the inhabitants of Jerusalema have said, Get you far from the Great Spirit: unto us is this land given in possession.

Ezekiel 11 The House of Jacob Hopeful Promised Return

16 Therefore say, Thus saith the Great Spirit Almighty; Although I have cast them far off among the heathen, and although I have scattered them among the countries, yet will I be to them as a little sanctuary in the countries where they shall come. 17 Therefore say, Thus saith the Great Spirit Almighty; I will even gather you from the people, and assemble you out of the countries where ye have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Akobe.

18 And they shall come thither, and they shall take away all the detestable things thereof and all the abominations thereof from thence. 19 And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you, and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them a heart of flesh:

20 That they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine ordinances, and do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their Ruler. 21 But as for them whose heart walketh after the heart of their detestable things and their abominations, I will recompense their way upon their own heads, saith the Great Spirit Ruler.

In A More Modern Tone

The Great Spirit replied: Ezekiel, son of man. The people living in Jerusalema claim that you and the other Bantu who were taken to Babylonia are too far away to worship me. They also claim that the land of Akobe now belongs only to them. But here is what I want you to tell the the Bantu in Babylonia:

It’s true that I, the Great Spirit Almighty, have forced you out of your own country and made you live among foreign nations. But for now, I will be with you wherever you are, so that you can worship me. And someday, I will gather you from the nations where you are scattered. And let you live in the land of Akobe again.

When that happens, I want you to clear the land of all those idols I hate so much. Then I will take away your stubbornness and make you eager to be completely faithful to me. You will want to obey me and all my laws and teachings. You will be my people, and I will be your Ruler. But those who worship idols will be punished and they will get what they deserve. I, the Great Spirit Almighty, have spoken.

Powerful words.

The question is have they been recovered back to their lands? If so, did they clear out all idols and are worshipping the Great Spirit wholly? If not, when will the Great Spirit gather them?
