Will ISIS Prepare the Biblically Promised Land for Israel at End of Days?

By Rivkah Lambert Adler.. “And ye shall inherit it one as well as another concerning which I lifted up My hand to give it unto your fathers; and this land shall fall unto you for inheritance.” Ezekiel 47:14. Could ISIS have an unexpected role to play in preparing to restore the original borders of the Biblical Promised Land to Israel? That’s exactly what Rabbi Jeremy Gimpel suggested on a recent radio show on the Land of Israel network.
Rabbi Gimpel suggested that ISIS could be seen as a divine tool used to prepare the region for a second-stage fulfillment of Genesis 15, which promises Abraham that his children will inherit a plot of land significantly larger than the current State of Israel.

In that day Hashem made a covenant with Avram, 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 Biblical prophecy in Genesis 15 promises the Children of Abraham all the land from the Nile River to the Euphrates River. This includes all of modern-day Jordan and Lebanon, the majority of Syria and parts of Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Iraq.

Yet, two chapters later, we see that the promise of a wide swath of land in the region is reduced to just the Land of Canaan.

And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land of thy sojournings, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God. Genesis 17:8

What happened in between these two chapters that dramatically reduced the territory promised to Abraham’s descendants through his son Isaac? Ishmael was born.

In his book The Ishmaelite Exile: The Truth Behind the Headlines, Rabbi Yechiel Weitzman explained that “God’s promise is kept in its entirety, albeit in a divided manner. The territory within the bounds of the promise is the possession solely of Avraham’s offspring. This includes Ishmael, who took the larger share.” Read the full story here.
