ROYAL DEED TO THE PROMISED LAND
We can read about that Royal Deed to the Promised Land in Genesis 12:1-3, “Now Yahweh 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. 2I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. 3I 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.””
Genesis 13:14-18, “And Yahweh 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; 15for all the land which you see I give to you and your descendants forever. 16And I will make your descendants as the dust of the earth; so that if a man could number the dust of the earth, then your descendants also could be numbered. 17Arise, walk in the land through its length and its width, for I give it to you.”
18Then Abram moved his tent, and went and dwelt by the terebinth trees of Mamre, which are in Hebron, and built an altar there to Yahweh.” Genesis 15:1-21, “After these things the word of Yahweh came to Abram in a vision, saying, “Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.”
2But Abram said, “Lord Yahweh, what will You give me, seeing I go childless, and the heir of my house is Eliezer of Damascus?” 3Then Abram said, “Look, You have given me no offspring; indeed one born in my house is my heir!”
4And behold, the word of Yahweh came to him, saying, “This one shall not be your heir, but one who will come from your own body shall be your heir.” 5Then He brought him outside and said, “Look now toward heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them.” And He said to him, “So shall your descendants be.”
6And he believed in Yahweh, and He accounted it to him for righteousness.
7Then He said to him, “I am Yahweh, who brought you out of Ur of the Chaldeans, to give you this land to inherit it.”
8And he said, “Lord Yahweh, how shall I know that I will inherit it?”
9So He said to him, “Bring Me a three-year-old heifer, a three-year-old female goat, a three-year-old ram, a turtledove, and a young pigeon.” 10Then he brought all these to Him and cut them in two, down the middle, and placed each piece opposite the other; but he did not cut the birds in two. 11And when the vultures came down on the carcasses, Abram drove them away.
12Now when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and behold, horror and great darkness fell upon him. 13Then He said to Abram: “Know certainly that your descendants will be strangers in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them, and they will afflict them four hundred years. 14And also the nation whom they serve I will judge; afterward they shall come out with great possessions. 15Now as for you, you shall go to your fathers in peace; you shall be buried at a good old age. 16But in the fourth generation they shall return here, for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet complete.”
17And it came to pass, when the sun went down and it was dark, that behold, there appeared a smoking oven and a burning torch that passed between those pieces. 18On the same day Yahweh made a covenant with Abram, saying:
“To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the River Euphrates—19the Kenites, the Kenezzites, the Kadmonites, 20the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Rephaim, 21the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.””
Genesis 17:4-8, “As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of many nations. 5No longer shall your name be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have made you a father of many nations. 6I will make you exceedingly fruitful; and I will make nations of you, and kings shall come from you. 7And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be the Mighty One to you and your descendants after you. 8Also 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 Mighty One.”
Genesis 22:15-18, “Then the Angel of Yahweh called to Abraham a second time out of heaven, 16and said: “By Myself I have sworn, says Yahweh, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son—17blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies. 18In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.””
Genesis 26:1-5, “There was a famine in the land, besides the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went to Abimelech king of the Philistines, in Gerar.
2Then Yahweh appeared to him and said: “Do not go down to Egypt; live in the land of which I shall tell you. 3Dwell in this land, and I will be with you and bless you; for to you and your descendants I give all these lands, and I will perform the oath which I swore to Abraham your father. 4And I will make your descendants multiply as the stars of heaven; I will give to your descendants all these lands; and in your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed; 5because Abraham obeyed My voice and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes, and My laws.””
Amos 9:14-15, “I will bring back the captives of My people Israel; they shall build the waste cities and inhabit them; they shall plant vineyards and drink wine from them; they shall also make gardens and eat fruit from them. 15I will plant them in their land, and no longer shall they be pulled up from the land I have given them,” says Yahweh your Mighty One.”
Psalm 89:28-37, “My mercy I will keep for him forever,
And My covenant shall stand firm with him.
29 His seed also I will make to endure forever,
And his throne as the days of heaven.
30 “If his sons forsake My law
And do not walk in My judgments,
31 If they break My statutes
And do not keep My commandments,
32 Then I will punish their transgression with the rod,
And their iniquity with stripes.
33 Nevertheless My lovingkindness I will not utterly take from him,
Nor allow My faithfulness to fail.
34 My covenant I will not break,
Nor alter the word that has gone out of My lips.
35 Once I have sworn by My holiness;
I will not lie to David:
36 His seed shall endure forever,
And his throne as the sun before Me;
37 It shall be established forever like the moon,
Even like the faithful witness in the sky.””
Romans 15:25-27, “But now I am going to Jerusalem to minister to the saints. 26For it pleased those from Macedonia and Achaia to make a certain contribution for the poor among the saints who are in Jerusalem. 27It pleased them indeed, and they are their debtors. For if the Gentiles have been partakers of their spiritual things, their duty is also to minister to them in material things.”
John 4:22, “You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews.”
Romans 11:28-29, “Concerning the gospel they are enemies for your sake, but concerning the election they are beloved for the sake of the fathers.”
We have previously posted on our blog a couple other articles about the Promised Land. Check out my posts titled, Yahweh Owns It – Yahweh Divides It, and Three Deeds. Believe it or not, Yahweh watches over His people, His Land, and His Covenant commitments and obligations. It amazes me that the nations of the world, and their leaders, are so ignorant of what Yahweh has said and done. Israel’s leaders sometimes seen to be just as ignorant. Dividing Israel, giving up land for so-called peace, which never works anyway, and moving Jews out of their homes is not pleasing to Yahweh. The so-called Palestinians are not even a nation, or even an ethnic group. They are simply Arabs, displaced from Jordan and Syria, etc. Do your research on the web, there are plenty of teachings and videos on who the Palestinians are and are not. The nations of the world are condemning themselves . . . to hell. Yahweh gave us this verse last night, Psalm 9:17, but I’ll quote 17-20, “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget Yahweh. 18For the needy shall not always be forgotten; the expectation of the poor shall not perish forever. 19Arise, O Yahweh, do not let man prevail; let the nations be judged in Your sight. 20Put them in fear, O Yahweh, that the nations may know themselves to be but men.”
The depravity that man has fallen to in the last 50-60 years is absolutely appalling. Don’t think for a moment that Yahweh does not know what’s happening on earth. He neither sleeps nor slumbers, unlike His children. Just turn on the latest news about the riots in London and other English cities and you will see the pit that man has fallen into. As we post, American military forces are training for repression of similar civil unrest in America. You don’t have to be a genius to know that the fabric of the societies of the world are unraveling. Without a spiritual awakening and turning to Yahweh through His Son Yeshua, this world is doomed. Yeshua is our only hope for peace, security, and prosperity. Fallen, sinful man must repent of his sins and turn to Yeshua in faith in order for us to see any kind of turnaround in world affairs.
Friends, do you think the leaders of America solved anything last week by raising the national debt ceiling? Hardly, they are simply deceived and deceiving the public by kicking the can full of debt forward another year. Our national debt is now 100% of Gross Domestic Product. This means that ALL the hard work of ALL American workers could now go towards nothing more than paying on our national debt. That would leave NO room for ANY federal services, including Social Security and the military. Do you know that whatever law it was that they just passed only called for $25 billion in immediate cuts to the Federal Budget? Do you know how long it takes for Washington D.C. to spend $25 Billion? about as long as it takes for you to read this paragraph. No nation in human history has survived as a nation when their national debt even approached 100% of GDP. If you are a civil government, and you are borrowing over 40 cents on every dollar you spend, would it not make sense to just cut 50% from every line item in the budget? This is proof that our leaders are insane. We could eliminate every federal department except the Department of Defense, if we needed to. NONE of the other departments at the federal level provide one single useful service to this nation. Who needs the IRS to steal our money from us? Who needs the Department of Education to put our kids in debt for life? Who needs all those other alphabet soup departments? NOBODY NEEDS THEM.
What we need is miners, oil field workers, steel workers, ship builders, auto workers, farmers, truck drivers and grocery store clerks. Did you hear about the closing of the Emerald Mine in Nevada, the last longest-operating mine in America? It should break your heart and bring tears to your eyes.
America is the Mystery Babylon of Revelation 17 and 18. We are going to burn, it’s just a matter of time. We have an entire generation of humans on this rock with no conscience or a severely seared conscience, at best. It’s time for Yahweh’s children to get on their faces before Him, repent for themselves and for their families, friends, communities, and nations. Pray for our civil and religious leaders; we need leaders with faith and courage to change this nation and our world. We need leaders that understand their Bibles and the end times and have the guts to stand with Israel and all Yahweh’s people. Watch how America votes at the UN vote for Palestinian statehood. It could be the vote that determines our national destiny. To stand with Israel is a blessing, to oppose Israel is to bring a curse on our nation. The choice is ours, let your Congressmen know how you feel.
