Why are the nations in uproar and the peoples devising a vain thing? Psalm 2:1
After 65 years of the miraculous establishing of the modern day state of Israel, the controversy against it and its people seem to be raging more than ever. Many people groups are claiming the Land of Israel as “theirs”.
WHO IS THE OWNER OF THE LAND OF ISRAEL?
First of all as we celebrate Israel’s 65th Anniversary let us remember a few things.
The Land belongs to YHVH.
The land, moreover, shall not be sold permanently, for the land is Mine; for you are but aliens and sojourners with Me. Leviticus 25:23
He has given it to the People of Israel forever! (Genesis 12:7, Genesis 13:15, 15:18, 17:18, 24:7, 26:3, 28:4, 13, 35:12, 48:4, Exodus 32:13, 33:1, Deuteronomy 1:8, 11:9, 34:4, 2 Chronicles 20:7, Nehemiah 1:8, Jeremiah 23:8, Jeremiah 30:10,11, 46:27-28, 1 Chronicles 16:13-18)
All the land that you see I will give to you and your offspring forever. Genesis 13:15
Remember your servants Abraham, Isaac and Israel, to whom you swore by your own self: ‘I will make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and I will give your descendants all this land I promised them, and it will be their inheritance forever.’” Exodus 32:13
He has remembered His covenant forever, the word which He commanded to a thousand generations, 9 the covenant which He made with Abraham, and His oath to Isaac.10 Then He confirmed it to Jacob for a statute, to Israel as an everlasting covenant, 11 Saying, “To you I will give the land of Canaan as the portion of your inheritance. Psalm 105:8-11
The descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the flesh are the Jewish People of today. (See Hosea 1:6, 7, the Book of Esther, Ezra and Nehemiah)
