The Land Of Israel

By Dr. David R. Reagan.. To whom does it belong? The answer is really very simple. God gave the land of Israel to Abraham (Genesis 17:8) and to his descendants through Isaac (Genesis 26:2-5) and Jacob (Genesis 28:1-4,13-14). That means the land belongs to the descendants of Jacob, whose name was changed to Israel. In other words, the land belongs to the children of Israel, referred to in the New Testament as the Jews (Romans 1:16). Some immediately protest this claim by arguing that the Abrahamic Covenant has been abrogated either by the Cross or by the disobedience of the Jews. But the Bible clearly teaches that the Abrahamic Covenant is an everlasting one that is still in effect (Genesis 17:7; 1 Chronicles 16:17-18; Psalm 105:8-11; and Romans 9:4).

As to the effect of the Jew’s rejection of Jesus, Paul specifically addresses this question in Romans 3. He asks a rhetorical question: “What then? If some did not believe, their unbelief will not nullify the faithfulness of God, will it?” For almost two thousand years the Church has answered this question with a resounding, Yes! But Paul answers it differently. He says, “May it never be! Rather, let God be found true, though every man be found a liar…” (Romans 3:1-4). Read the full story.
