YHVH’s Eternal Promise The Land is Israel’s Possession for Ever
Genesis 13:14-15 “YHVH said to Abraham after Lot had parted company with him: ‘Look all around from where you are toward the north and the south, toward the east and the west. All the land within sight I will give to you and your descendants forever.'” Abraham was in the vicinity of the Dead Sea in Israel at the time, from where he went to Hebron.
Genesis 15:18 “That day YHVH made a Covenant with Abraham in these terms: ‘To your descendants I give this Land, from the Wadi of Egypt to the Great River, the river Euphrates.'”
Genesis 17:5-8 Another Divine Promise to Abraham: “… I make you father of a multitude of nations … I will establish My Covenant between Myself and you, and your descendants after you, generation after generation; a Covenant in perpetuity to be your God and the God of your descendants after you … I will give to you and to your descendants after you the Land you are living in, the whole land of Canaan, to own in perpetuity, and I will be your everlasting God.”
Psalms 105:8-11 “Remember His Covenant forever, His Word of Command for a thousand generations, the Pact He made with Abraham, His Oath to Isaac. He established it as a Statute for Jacob, an everlasting Covenant for Israel. I give you a Land He said: Canaan, your allotted heritage.”
Since Adam, the first man, to today, is merely some 70 generations of 70 years each, or 150 generations of 40 years each. So 1000 generations takes us beyond comprehension! Thus, the Land known today as Israel or Palestine is the Inheritance of the Israelites for ever – by Divine Decree! It is this Decree which is so audaciously being challenged by all the nations of the world, rather than accepting the Divine Invitation to share with Judah and Israel in this Eternal Blessing! (For more on this Challenge against God, read Declaring War on God).
Amos 9:14-15 “I mean to restore the fortunes of My people Israel; they will rebuild the ruined cities and live in them, plant vineyards and drink their wine, dig gardens and eat their produce. I will plant them in their own Country, never to be rooted up again out of the Land I have given them, says YHVH your God.”
This Divine Promise has been rejuvenated when, after the 2000-year long Exile of Jews from Jerusalem and the Land, God returned them from across the world to their original Homeland in 1948, In 1967, after a 6-day ‘Miracle War’ with enemies on all sides of the Land, Jerusalem was delivered into Jewish hands again for the first time in 2000 years! It is this re-occupation of the Land which is disputed by all countries in the world today!
