4.   Israel is a chosen people – Deuteronomy 7:6, Isaiah 43:10-11

5.   God gave the Land to the descendants of Abraham…as an everlasting possession – Genesis 12:7, Genesis 17:7-8

6.   Although Abraham had many sons, the Land of Israel was given to Isaac – Genesis 17:18-19

7.   Years later the Lord appeared to Isaac and confirmed the promise to him personally – Genesis 26:3-4, Genesis 25:5-6

8.   Although Isaac had two sons, the Land was given, not to Esau but to Jacob (Israel) – Genesis 28:13-14, Genesis 35:10-12

9.   Israel’s God-given borders are described in detail in the Scriptures – Genesis 13:14-17, Genesis 15:18, Exodus 23:31

10. The LORD swore an oath (repeated more than 40 times in the Scripture) to give the Land to the Jewish people – Psalm 105:8-11, Hebrews 6:16-18

11.  Israel’s sin, disobedience and resulting exile never voided God’s covenant with His Chosen People, nor permanently took away their right to the Land of Israel – Deuteronomy 30:1-5

12.  In His Word, God promised to re-gather the Jews to their “own land” – Ezekiel 36:24,28, Ezekiel 37:21, Jeremiah 16:14-15

13.  In His Word, God calls this restored Land “Israel” – not “Palestine” – Ezekiel 37:12

14.  Through the prophet Ezekiel God says that this land is specifically reserved for the Jewish people – Ezekiel 36:8-10

15.  2,500 years ago the Lord said that the Jews returning to the Land would provoke Israel’s neighbours – Ezekiel 36:2-5

16.  God will severely judge any nation/people who claim this special Land for their own and divide it up as they please – Joel 3:1-2

17.  Eventually this conflict over the Land of Israel will involve the entire world – Zechariah 12:2-3

18.  It will be a time of great distress for the Jewish people but they will be miraculously delivered – Jeremiah 30:7

19.  God has not rejected Israel.  He will fulfill every promise He has ever made to them – Deuteronomy 4:30-31, Romans 11:1a-2a

20.  When Jesus comes, all Israel will be saved – Romans 11:25-29

What is my responsibility?

  1. Bless Israel (Genesis 12:3)
  2. Do not be arrogant toward Israel (Romans 11:18)
  3. Do not be uninformed about Israel (Romans 11:25)
  4. Stand by Israel and support Israel whenever possible
  5. “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem” (Psalm 122:6) by asking God to send Messiah Yeshuah to rule on the throne of David from Jerusalem.  There will never be any peace in the Middle East or on planet earth until He comes to rule
  6. Support ministries that are reaching out to the Jewish people with the Good News about the Messiah, …not just blessing Israel, but committed to bring them the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ
