The Holy Spirit revealed through Isaiah that in the last days "the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people," adding, "He shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth" (Is 11:11-12).  Although God scattered and secluded Israel's descendants around the world, He promise to gather them to a place called Zion: "The ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy" (Is 35:10).

Israel, Israel, God is calling,
Calling thee from lands of woe;
Babylon the great is falling;
God shall all her tower o'erthrow.
Come to Zion, Come to Zion,
Ere his floods of anger flow,
Ere his floods of anger flow

 Israel, Israel, God is speaking;
Hear your great deliverer's voice!
Now a glorious morn is breaking
For the people of his choice.
Come to Zion, Come to Zion,
And within her walls rejoice,
And within her walls rejoice.

Israel, angels are descending
From celestial worlds on high,
And toward man their powers extending,
That the saints may homeward fly.
Come to Zion, Come to Zion,
For your coming Lord is nigh,
For your coming Lord is nigh.

Israel, Israel, canst thou linger
Still in error's gloomy ways?
Mark how judgment's pointing finger
Justifies no vain delays.
Come to Zion, Come to Zion;
Zion's walls shall ring with praise;
Zion's walls shall ring with praise.

This work is the "refreshing" of the restoration of the Church of Jesus Christ in these last days brought first through Joseph Smith Jr and comes again through Maurício Berger. This website will post truth irrespective of its conduit. "All truth is independent in that sphere in which God has placed it, to act for itself, as all intelligence also, otherwise there is no existence"  D&C 90:5b RLDS or D&C 93:30 LDS.  Therefore,  postings on this website should be viewed as the endorsement of truth—speaking generally and not specifically for each word, action, person or organization. "And righteousness and truth will I cause to sweep the earth as with a flood, to gather out mine own elect from the four quarters of the earth, unto a place which I shall prepare; an holy city, that my people may gird up their loins, and be looking forth for the time of my coming; for there shall be my tabernacle, and it shall be called Zion; a New Jerusalem." Genesis 7:70
