“The days are coming,” declares the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the people of Israel and with the people of Judah. It will not be like the covenant I made with their ancestors when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt, because they broke my covenant, though I was a husband to them,” declares the LORD (Yahweh).
“This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel after that time,” declares the LORD (Yahweh). “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. No longer will they teach their neighbor, or say to one another, ‘Know the LORD (Yahweh),’ because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest,” declares the LORD (Yahweh). “For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.”
This is what the LORD (Yahweh) says, He who appoints the sun to shine by day, who decrees the moon and stars to shine by night,who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar— the LORD (Yahweh) Almighty is his name: “Only if these decrees vanish from my sight,” declares the LORD, “will Israel ever cease being a nation before me.”
This is what the LORD (Yahweh) says: “Only if the heavens above can be measured and the foundations of the earth below be searched out will I reject all the descendants of Israel because of all they have done,” declares the LORD (Yahweh).
The land of Israel is not Palestine. It is Israel. Yahweh gave the Jews their land when He brought them out of Egypt. It was formerly inhabited by heathen nations including Philistines (not Arabs, or Hagarites, or Ishmaelites, or Saracens; who didn’t even exist at that time) which God judged and displaced for their sins.
When Yahweh gave the Jews the land of Israel, He promised it to them forever.
In 70 AD the Romans and their legions destroyed the Jewish temple and took most of the Jewish survivors captive. The land was left mostly deserted except for a small number of poor Jews who remained amidst a sparse population of foreigners including some Arabs– there were no Palestinians (ancient Philistines).
The name was changed to Palestine (a word derived from the word Philistine) to spite the Jews.
Many conquerors ruled in Jerusalem through the years but it was still the land of Israel. A remnant of Jews always lived there and Yahweh had promised to bring His people back to Israel at the appointed time. Many doubted that would happen, even among Christians, but God fulfilled His Word when He brought the modern nation of Israel back to life in 1948.
Many Jews started returning to Israel in the late 1800s. It was a very sparsely populated desert wasteland, as documented by Mark Twain and other visitors at the time. Even Jerusalem was in a state of neglect, but the Jewish people who returned started working to restore the land to productivity.
Following the holocaust many more Jews returned to Israel (limited by quotas under the British Mandate), and as they came, Arabs (Christian and Muslim) from surrounding nations started pouring into the country to find good paying jobs working for the Jews. It was similar to the Mexican workers illegally entering the USA today. There were no border fences so they just crossed the desert and the Jordan River (unhindered by quotas) and found jobs and took up residence among the growing Jewish population.
Later, when the Arab/Muslim nations attacked the new Jewish homeland in 1967, the Arabs who had come in for work (and had, at the most, a 150 year connection to the land) began to call themselves Palestinians and claimed ownership of the land from “time immemorial.”
Contrary to popular Palestinian refugee myths, Israel did not kick the Arabs out of Israel. It was the Muslim Arabs from surrounding nations who encouraged them to flee the conflicts in 1948 and 1967, promising them that they could return to their homes when Israel was wiped off the map. But, the Muslim Arabs lost the war, and that led to the original refugee problem which is nurtured and maintained to cause friction up to the present time. Muslim Arabs, not Jews, caused the problem and perpetuate it.
The proof about Israel’s treatment of Arabs lies in the fact that over a million Arabs live in modern Israel today with full rights as citizens and even have representation in the Knesset.
Many more could live there if they would recognize Israel’s right to exist and live in peace with the Jews.
As for the need for a “Palestinian State.” As I mentioned earlier, there are no Palestinians. There are only modern Arabs calling themselves Palestinians so they can claim land that belongs to Israel. In addition, there is already a Palestinian State known as Jordon. It was created from the British Mandate land which would have been a part of modern Israel if the “Arab/Palestinians” hadn’t agitated for it. All so-called “Palestinians” are welcome there.
Look at the map provided and you can see that Jordan is comprised of 80-90% of the “Palestine” Mandate.
When the Ottoman (Turkish) Empire collapsed, the modern states of Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Israel were created. Israel got a very small piece of the Middle Eastern pie to start with and the Muslims got the rest, but they have tried to take the Jews tiny land away from them since the very beginning.
Why does the world not know its history and understand the travesty going on in the Middle East today? Rather than looking at the map and seeing how tiny Israel is surrounded on all sides by a vast sea of Muslim countries who want to destroy her; the world looks at Israel through a magnifying glass and chastises her for refusing to give more of her tiny piece of the pie to those in Gaza and the West Bank who are trying to annihilate her! (Those enemies are not the underdogs. They are a part of the vast Muslim sea which surrounds Israel! Please, take another look!)
There will be some rough days ahead for this world because of the way Israel has been wronged. Anyone interested in the truth about the Palestinian question should read the Bible– especially if one has been exposed to the Quran.
Mohammad deceived his followers by using the Bible to gain credibility for his teaching. Then he twisted some scriptures and dismissed others to serve his own purposes. He lifted himself up as the greatest and final prophet and then he downgraded Jesus to a role inferior to himself.
For Islam to displace Israel in God’s plan, Mohammad used a method similar to Satan’s lie in Eden. He has led the Muslims to believe a lie that goes something like this:
“Has God said that land belongs to the Jews? Well, that’s all changed now! They sinned and have been forsaken. Take their land! You can rule the world once you get Israel under your control! Go ahead! Trust me, you won’t die!”
And, many unsuspecting souls have fallen for his deception. So tragic, for Islam will only lead to the destruction of its followers.
The real Bethlehem born, Jesus of Nazareth, revealed in the Bible as the Son of God is coming again, and He is coming to save Israel and all other believers who have chosen to trust in Him for eternal salvation.
But you, Israel, my servant, Jacob, whom I have chosen, you descendants of Abraham my friend, I took you from the ends of the earth, from its farthest corners I called you.
I said, ‘You are my servant’; I have chosen you and have not rejected you. So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
“All who rage against you will surely be ashamed and disgraced; those who oppose you will be as nothing and perish. Though you search for your enemies, you will not find them. Those who wage war against you will be as nothing at all.
For I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. Do not be afraid…little Israel, do not fear, for I myself will help you,” declares the LORD (Yahweh), your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.
I have experienced God’s faithfulness. When He tells me something, I know it will come to pass! His Word never fails. It always accomplishes its purpose. The Jewish nation will be preserved without a doubt and her enemies will be destroyed. Wait for it!
You can trust Him to protect and preserve you too, if you will but turn to Him in faith, and accept His help and salvation provided through the sacrifice and resurrection of His Son, Jesus Christ!
Psalms 119:89-90 NIV
Your word, LORD (Yahweh), is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens. Your faithfulness continues through all generations; You established the earth, and it endures.
There is no ROCK like Yahweh! He is faithful and true!
