The timing of the regathering of Israel is uncertain, but here are the Scriptural markers that narrow the time frame to a significant prophetic event.
Prophecy shows God scattering His people for their sins. It appears He will scatter them into small fragments, perhaps even down to individuals alone.

Gathering and scattering cannot be done at the same time, but can be accomplished at different times. God gathers to reverse the effects of calamity.
Christ's admonition to endure to the end is in itself a solemn prophecy that Christians will have difficult times. How can we make sure that we will endure?
Where God's people are concerned, military might is far less of a factor in the outcome of a war than morality. Do we still have God's favor?
Ezekiel 7:14 contains a chilling description of a summons to battle followed by a refusal to defend the home country. This prophecy pertains to the nations of Israel.
