Jesus, Our Blessed Hope

As we watch and pray hearing and seeing Israel suffer yet another attack and retaliate with the world's usual condemnation, I thought we should look at what God has to say about exactly what land Israel does legitimately own. Does the Islamic Nations have a leg to stand on as they demand more and more? Look at the map! Annette

God's Promise: Israel's Land

"For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath He sent me
unto the nations which spoiled you [Israel]: for he that
touches you touches the apple of His eye."
Zechariah 2:8 

Nov 17, '12, Wars have pushed and squeezed Israel into the tiny strip of land it is today. BUT in almighty God's word, the Holy Bible's book of Genesis, He promised
Israel's patriarch, Abraham declaring that his decedents would someday
possess all the land/territory between ...
"the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates"

"the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates."   

Genesis 15:18


The Jews did rightfully possess the entire  

area during the reign of King Solomon



"And Solomon ruled over all the kingdoms from the River [Euphrates]  

unto the land of the Philistines and unto the border of Egypt: they  

brought tribute and served Solomon all the days of his life." 1 Kings 4:21


"She [the nation of Israel] sent out her branches unto the sea,  

and her branches unto the River." Psalm 80:11   


"And he reigned over all the kings from the river even unto the land of the Philistines and to the border of Egypt." 2Chronicles 9:26


The world's nations don't believe God and won't accept His word as recorded in the Bible. It clearly says that Israel does indeed own the land and much more than is currently mapped.


It is an outrage what the nations
have done to God's chosen people
"For thou [Israel] [art] an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto Himself, above all people that [are] upon the face of the earth."  Deuteronomy 7:6   

"Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing

of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ" Titus 2:13
