Scriptures on Gathering of Israel:

-“I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries whither I have driven them” (Jeremiah 23:3).

The power and authority to direct the work of gathering the house of Israel was given to Joseph Smith by the prophet Moses, who appeared in 1836 in the Kirtland Temple (see D&C 110:11)

-spiritual precedes physical

-Deut 30:1-5 gather

The physical gathering of Israel will not be complete until the Second Coming of the Savior and on into the Millennium (see Joseph Smith—Matthew 1:37).

-Gather to lands of our fathers (Jeremiah 16:14–15).

-The physical gathering of Israel means that the covenant people will be “gathered home to the lands of their inheritance, and shall be established in all their lands of promise” (2 Nephi 9:2).

-The tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh will be gathered in the Americas. The tribe of Judah will return to the city of Jerusalem and the area surrounding it. The ten lost tribes will receive from the tribe of Ephraim their promised blessings (see D&C 133:26–34). (they go to Zion also (Zion is America)

-Zion is America, Jerusalem is Palestine
