God’s Promised Land to Israel and the Jewish People

Commentary By:  Gordon King

I have recently received many derogatory and unfounded comments by a certain person (no names given) over this past week.  He claims that the Jews have no right to Israel, that it was never given to them, that the Palestinians were originally Canaanites, and that the Jews are really Nazis!  He also makes very rude and disrespectful comments about me as well.  Claiming that I am a stupid, brainwashed, tv Christian.

Well, I will respond with this post.  He claims that he read the bible over 50 times and never found anywhere that God gave the Jews the land of Israel.  Really?!  I suppose this makes sense, since a non-believer would be blinded by the truth.  There are many, many verses in the bible stating that God gave promised land to Israel, however, I will only list a few.  Please check what I have written with the word of God.

Lets start with God.  Remember Genesis 1:1-2

1 “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.”

Why include this verse?  Because it establishes the fact that God created the heavens and the earth.  He is the creator, and He is the owner of everything.  All land belongs to God.  God had a plan to give the land of Israel to the Jews from the beginning of creation, before it was occupied by anyone!

God makes a promise to Abraham.

Genesis 12:1-3

12 Now the Lord had said to Abram:

“Get out of your country,
From your family
And from your father’s house,
To a land that I will show you.
I will make you a great nation;
I will bless you
And make your name great;
And you shall be a blessing.
I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses you;
And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

He will make Abraham a great nation, will bless him, and show him land (which God will give to Him as we will soon see).  He states here that the nation of Israel will be a blessing to the world, and whosoever curses Israel will be cursed by God.

In Genesis 12:5-7 God tells Abraham that He will give him the land of Canaan.  Remember, this is Gods land, He may give it freely to whomever He pleases.

Genesis 12:5-7

5 “Then Abram took Sarai his wife and Lot his brother’s son, and all their possessions that they had gathered, and the people whom they had acquired in Haran, and they departed to go to the land of Canaan. So they came to the land of Canaan. Abram passed through the land to the place of Shechem, as far as the terebinth tree of Moreh. And the Canaanites were then in the land. Then the Lord appeared to Abram and said, “To your descendants I will give this land.”

Genesis 13:14-15

14 “And the Lord said to Abram, after Lot had separated from him: “Lift your eyes now and look from the place where you are—northward, southward, eastward, and westward; 15 for all the land which you see I give to you and your descendants forever.”

Genesis 15:7

7 ‘Then He said to him, “I am the Lord, who brought you out of Ur of the Chaldeans, to give you this land to inherit it.” ‘

God establishes an eternal covenant with Abraham which includes the land of Canaan forever.

Genesis 17:7-8

7 “And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and your descendants after you. Also I give to you and your descendants after you the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.”

An everlasting possession means forever!  The land of Israel, formerly Canaan, belongs to the Jews forever and always!  How difficult is that to understand?  If you have read the bible over 50 times, it seems to me that you would not have overlooked all of these verses.  But wait!  There’s more.

The descendants of Abraham will inherit the land of Canaan and become a great nation, in which all of the nations of the world will be blessed.  But Abraham had two sons, Ishmael (an illegitimate son) and Issac.  Well, the following passage tells about this.

Genesis 17:18-21

18 And Abraham said to God, “Oh, that Ishmael might live before You!” 19 Then God said: “No, Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac; I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his descendants after him. 20 And as for Ishmael, I have heard you. Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly. He shall beget twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation. 21 But My covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom Sarah shall bear to you at this set time next year.”

Well there you go!  Ishmael was not the son to be a part of God’s covenant with Israel, Issac was!  Ishmael is one of the fathers of the Arabs.  Issac is the father of the Jews and the nation of Israel.  Issac begot Jacob and Esau.  Esau was the first-born, however, Jacob received the birth right from his father Issac.

And Issac said to Jacob:

Genesis 28:4

4 “And give you the blessing of Abraham,
To you and your descendants with you,
That you may inherit the land
In which you are a stranger,
Which God gave to Abraham.”

Moses speaks to the Jews once arriving at the promised land of Canaan.

Deuteronomy 1:6-8

“The Lord our God spoke to us in Horeb, saying: ‘You have dwelt long enough at this mountain. Turn and take your journey, and go to the mountains of the Amorites, to all the neighboring places in the plain, in the mountains and in the lowland, in the South and on the seacoast, to the land of the Canaanites and to Lebanon, as far as the great river, the River Euphrates. See, I have set the land before you; go in and possess the land which the Lord swore to your fathers—to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob—to give to them and their descendants after them.’”

After the death of Moses, God speaks to Joshua telling about the land that He is giving them, saying:

Joshua 1:2-4

“Moses My servant is dead. Now therefore, arise, go over this Jordan, you and all this people, to the land which I am giving to them—the children of Israel. Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you, as I said to Moses. From the wilderness and this Lebanon as far as the great river, the River Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and to the Great Sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your territory.

Joshua 3:10

10 “And Joshua said, “By this you shall know that the living God is among you, and that He will without fail drive out from before you the Canaanites and the Hittites and the Hivites and the Perizzites and the Girgashites and the Amorites and the Jebusites:”

God tells the Jews to kill all of the inhabitants of Canaan.  This seems very cruel and unusual for a kind and loving God to command such a thing.  But, we must understand the condition of the people of this land.  They were evil, wicked, idolaters, sorcerers, mediums.  They worshiped false gods.  We must not forget that there were also giants in the land.  These giants were the direct descendents of fallen angels.  The Jews were under no condition to mix with these people, for they were an abomination unto the Lord!  Remember what happened to Sodom and Gomorrah?!

Deuteronomy 20:16-18

16 “But of the cities of these peoples which the Lord your God gives you as an inheritance, you shall let nothing that breathes remain alive, 17 but you shall utterly destroy them: the Hittite and the Amorite and the Canaanite and the Perizzite and the Hivite and the Jebusite, just as the Lord your God has commanded you, 18 lest they teach you to do according to all their abominations which they have done for their gods, and you sin against the Lord your God.

Deuteronomy 20:16-18

“When you come into the land which the Lord your God is giving you, you shall not learn to follow the abominations of those nations. 10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord, and because of these abominations the Lord your God drives them out from before you.”

Please check the bible for yourself.  These are only a few of the verses pertaining to the land God promised to Israel.  For anyone to make accusations about me saying that Israel belongs to the Jews is unfounded, and un-biblical.  If after reading this post you still do not agree with me then so be it.  I will believe what God tells me is the truth.

As for the Palestinians, they never occupied Israel, for there never was a nation of Palestine!

Whether you believe me, believe the bible, or not.  That is your choice.  No one is forcing anyone to believe what God has written or promised.  You have the choice to believe, to have faith.  I believe the bible.  I believe all of God’s words to be the truth.  He is the only authority I need!

Until next time, God Bless!

  1. You are right… But who are the real Jews…it’s probably a minority in Israel right now… the real majority of Abrahams children are now the Gentiles… here’s a link which will give you the Real Jewish descendants -” ISRAEL” the people, Not the Country! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HRbka-D0iK0

  2. Gordan, God Bless You! He wants you to reveal his truth to everyone, which not only includes your comrads in faith, but especially also to the unfaithful who will confront you with condemnation. Just forgive and pray for them as you stay solid as a rock.

  3. My take on the most important subject on earth: Gods word is rock solid, and he has kept his promise to the Jews, which means: Jews of the Torah, which is the old testament, and Jews of the entire Bible, including the new testament: Jews and Christians!

  4. Jews include Jews of the Old Testament born thru the original blood line, and Jews of the Entire Bible born again thru the blood of Jesus Christ. Allah and Mohammed have nothing to do with this. Check all the factual miracles of history, and the prophecy!

  5. The people running Israel right now are not Jews, they are followers of the Kabala.They do not follow the religion of Jews, Christians and Muslims. We must unite to defeat the Kabalans. Return the place back over to our Jewish brothers and sisters. Who will make peace with the Christians and the Muslims again. As it is intended by God’s will. Our Jewish brothers and sisters are being deceived. I am a muslim with jewish ancestry and lost 11 people in my family at Aushwitz. The Nazi followers were not believers and followed the Kabala. You know in the Torah, God is referred to as Yaewah, and in the Quran Allah. Muslims do not worship any different God than Christians. There is one God, and all worship belongs to him alone without joining partners with him.Christian brothers and sisters be careful not to worship Jesus (PBBUH), above God. Muslims believe that Jesus will return, and it couldn’t come soon enough, to clear up this mess that mankind has got itself into, again. He will have a message for all of us and make peace on Earth again. He will defeat the dajjal (anti-christ), and will live out the rest of life and have a wife and children. As is God’s promise to him. He will die and be laid to rest in the city of Medina.

  6. You are wrong! The God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob is NOT the same god of Islam. Jesus is God, He is Lord, and He is the only way to the Father in heaven.
    The Jews are God’s chosen people, you are so deceived my friend. Do not let the evil one deceive into to believing such things. I am telling you the truth and the truth will soon be made known. Remember what I am telling you as you bow down before Jesus! You have been told, never say you did not know, for now you do.
    The Jews are God’s chosen people and nation. God is with them and will protect them. Don’t believe me? Just wait, time will tell the truth! It is coming quickly.
    I pray for Jesus to come to you in visions and dreams that the truth may be made known to you. Amen and God Bless!

  7. Another reason Gordan, to state “In the beginning God created heaven and earth…” is there was no distinction between nationalities/race, until the tower of Babel. When God gave them different languages to populate the land.
    The Palestine descendant’s of Ismael who was the illegitimate son of Abraham and thereby not privilege to his inheritance as a first born because of this. God did provide Ismael and his mother with land and prosperity, just not the land God gave Abraham-Canaan. This land was to go and did go to Isaac and his descendants. It was NOT God who told Abraham to father a child with his wife’s maid – it was his wife Sarah; that union was not sanction by God, who told Abraham prior to this, that he will have a son with Sarah (as you have stated). Abraham finding himself and wife old, disobeyed; CHOSE not to believe God would provide. Ismael and Isaac bode well with each other, it was in the mothers were the tension arises till this present day. I believe Palestine today is South Philistine of old (I’m not a historian, please correct me if I’m wrong, I’m still researching this). Canaan was passed over to Isaac who pass it over to his son Jacob. God changed Jacob’s name to Israel. Jacob living in Canaan, the land God gave Abraham, as you stated is now Israel.
    Reading the Holy Scriptures in prayer with sincerity to learn truth and letting IT interrupt itself, will reveal many erroneous misconceptions. May the Good Lord open people’s hearts to accept what’s written therein, accept His guidance, accept Him. In Jesus’ name. Amen. God bless.

  8. All due respect to you Ms. Jeanine Ahmed, but I thank Gordan for caring enough about your soul to confront you straight forward that you are indeed wrong and confused. Seek Truth, Get Facts! Jesus is God! THE TRINITY: The Father, The Son, The Holy Spirit!

  9. I see confusion upon you in your message Jeanine. I do not see the Clear Message of Jesus Christ, who died for all sins, and conquered death! With Compassion for you, I Firmly Declare You Are Wrong! All the world needs The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit!

  10. Jeanine: The Bride of Jesus Christ is his true Christian Church. The Children of The Lord Jesus Christ are those of All of Humanity who accept him. He is one with the Father God, and was with him at The Creation! So was The Holy Spirit, all without sin!

  11. Christians do not put Jesus above his Father God, but we do put Jesus ONE WITH GOD! Christians do not believe that God tells us to kill Muslims if they dont conform! Rather, we *know* God tells us to Love one another with compassion and forgiveness!

  12. Every Individual Soul *Will* make a final decision to Accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior from their Sins, or not! Only Thru Jesus Christ can we come to The Father, who sent Jesus and gave us A RELATIONSHIP WITH OUR FATHER GOD! GOD COMMUNICATES!

  13. Jeanine: As with your Jewish ancesters you should know that The Jewish State of Israel is not run by Nazis. Those whom God chooses have a history of being condemned by those who are not of God, but are of The World. God is in Control of the universe!

  14. This is a spiritual warfare: Satan against God. Satan wants humans to deny Jesus Christ is God. Gods gonna win! The Christian American People believe God gave each human soul their own free will to choose. We arent Nazis either! Again, God is in control!

  15. The Truth in Unity is THRU THE FATHER GOD, THE SON JESUS CHRIST, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT! THE WORLD WILL NEVER UNITE IN PEACE WITHOUT THAT TRUE UNITY! THE TRINITY IS THE UNITY THAT LEADS THE WAY AND SETS THE UNITY EXAMPLE! HE WHO HAS AN EAR-EARTH-HEAR IT!

  16. Jeanine: MY GOD IS LOVE, MY GOD IS MERCIFUL, FORGIVING, FULL OF GRACE, KIND AND PATIENT, ALL KNOWING, WITHOUT SIN, MY GOD DIED FOR MY SINS, HE CONQUERED ETERNAL DEATH, HE CREATES-ONLY SATAN ATTEMPTS TO DESTROY SOULS. MY GOD IS HOLY, AND IS FATHER AND SON!

  17. She is stating what the Muslims believe and what the Quran teaches them. That Jesus is not God, that He is merely a prophet. That we all worship the same God. This is blasphemy in the highest! If the Muslims truly believed that we worship the same God, then they would also believe what the bible tells us to be true. That Jesus is God, that He died on the cross to cover all of our sins and to give us eternal life in heaven with Him. And that the only way to heaven is through the blood of Jesus! But they believe none of it. They call us the “people of the book”. I have heard that they are to respect us and listen to what we have to say about the book (bible). Yet they do not!

    If we also worship the same God, then why are Muslims trying to force non-believers of their faith into submission or they will murder them?! This is not from the God that I worship, but from an evil god, a counter-fit god. This is the truth, and I know it is difficult and painful for many to hear.

    All people can come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ! ALL!!! It is never too late, until you physically die, or take the “Mark of the Beast” which has not occurred yet. God wishes for none to perish, but for all to have eternal life. God loves everyone, but He does not love everything that people do or worship. In fact He hates most of it. But He is merciful and forgiving. He is knocking at the door, who will let Him in?

  18. God is in control, and it is God who brought back the Jews from the nations to re-establish the nation of Israel. It is bible prophecy come to pass! How much prophecy has come to pass in the Muslim religion? None!

  19. Thank you Gordan for your awesome site, insight, and support in truth! In all of the negative, there is Truth still shining thru to share, witness, and proclaim even up to the last moment, and it cannot be stopped! Sincere thanks as you carry on the word.
