Christ as the Prophesied David

Ezekiel 34:11-31 was fulfilled before Christ. Then Christ the son of David was sent and became king among them. He confirmed the covenant with them. It's not that that part of the promise failed, but the remnant has obtained it.

The re-etablishment of the State of Israel in 1948 can't be directly explained by this Scripture, unless accompanied with some disclaimer or further explanation:

Firstly, because all modern Israelis are not Jesus' sheep, and the prophecy said that it would be only God's sheep whom He would regather into the land (verse 12).

Secondly, because the regathering was to take place before Christ came (verse 23).

It's our experience now in our spirit as believers. And it shall be openly at His coming and kingdom.
