the land belongs?
Some, even Christian Leaders and Teachers, say that the
questions of the area of Israel and the Palestinian refugees has to be solved
by the Politicians on ,among other things, humanitarian basis – or that
the Believers should not express opinions for Israel. To divide Jerusalem again “to attain peace” is according to many imperative – even
if “land against peace” has not worked earlier.
But the Bible witnesses differently. The areas of Israel is not a political question, not a question of economy, not a
military question, and not a humanitarian question, but an answer based
on the Bible. And the land was not promised to all of the Semite
people, but distinctly to the descendants of Jacob. We read (Moos.
50:24): And Joseph said unto his brethren,
I die: and God will surely visit you, and bring you out of this land
unto the land which he sware to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.
And (to Jacob), Genesis. 35:12: And
the land which I gave Abraham and Isaac, to thee I will give it, and to
thy seed after thee will I give the land.
And Lev. 26:42: Then will I remember
my covenant with Jacob, and also my covenant with Isaac, and also my
covenant with Abraham will I remember; and I will remember the land.
Israelites, descendants of Jacob, are the apple of the eye of
God Yahve (Deut. 32:9-10): For the LORD's
portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance. He found
him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him
about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye.
Who blesses Israel, will be blessed
by Yahve and vice verse (Gen. 27:29b): Cursed be every one that
curseth thee, and blessed be he that blesseth thee. And Numbers 24:9b:
is he that blesseth thee, and cursed is he that curseth thee!
About Jerusalem (2. Kings 21:4b): in the house of the LORD, of which the LORD said,
In Jerusalem will I put my name. And Psalm 147: 2: The
LORD doth build up Jerusalem: he gathereth together
the outcasts of Israel.
Jerusalem, too, is th
apple of the eye of Yahve (2. Sam 24:16a): And when the angel stretched out his hand upon Jerusalem to destroy it, the LORD
repented him of the evil, and said to the angel that destroyed the
people, It is enough.
Jesus Yeshua loves Jerusalem so much that he burst into tears
because of its oppression (Luke 19:41): And
when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it.
