Has the Land Promise (To National Israel) been fulfilled?

The LAND PROMISES Fulfilled after their bondage in, and liberation from Egypt!

Joshua 21:43-45 so the LORD gave to Israel all the land which he swore to give to their fathers; and having taken possession of it, they settled there.  And the LORD gave them rest on every side just as he had sworn to their fathers; not one of all their enemies had withstood them, for the LORD had given all their enemies into their hands. Not one of all the good promises which the LORD had made to the house of Israel had failed; all came to pass.

1 Kings 8:56 blessed be the LORD, which has given rest to his people Israel, according to all that he promised: there has not failed one word of all his good promise, which he promised by the hand of Moses his servant.

Paul even proclaimed this (in the 1st century) in a Synagogue in Antioch, Pisidia (Asia minor – Modern day Turkey)

Acts 13:16-19 Then Paul stood up, and beckoning with his hand said, Men of Israel, and you that fear God, give audience. The God of this people of Israel chose our fathers, and exalted the people when they dwelt as strangers in the land of Egypt, and with an high arm brought he them out of it. And about the time of forty years suffered he their manners in the wilderness. And when he had destroyed seven nations in the land of Chanaan, he divided their land to them by lot.

Is there any record of anyone disputing this with Paul? No, there’s not!

 

The Land Promise given again, to be fulfilled upon their return from the Babylonian Captivity!

 

Jeremiah 30:3 For, lo, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, saith the LORD: and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it.

The land promises Fulfilled after their bondage in and liberation from the Babylonian Captivity!

Nehemiah 9:8 And found his heart faithful before you, and made a covenant with him to give the land of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Jebusites, and the Girgashites, to give it, I say, to his seed, and has performed your words; for you are righteous.

I would challenge anyone to show me where the Biological or Religion based Israelites are ever promised to be brought back into geographical Israel (a 3rd time) since their return from the Babylonian captivity; this promise simply doesn’t exist, in neither the Old, nor New Testaments.

I would further like to see who can disprove this:

Was the land promised to HUMANS?

Genesis 15:18 In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:

Galatians 3:16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.

The singular SEED this promise was made to was CHRIST, not HUMANS!

Epilogue:

I am sick to death of people screaming “The land belongs to Israel, it’s written all through the Bible”

Oh really?

What saith the scripture as to whom owns THE LAND?

Leviticus 25:23  The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land is mine; for you are strangers and sojourners with me

Not only does some strip of dirt/land in the Middle East BELONG to God, according to scripture; and it would seem common sense, God owns the planet/world/earth or whatever else you want to call it.

Psalms 24:1 The earth is the LORD’S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

Well?

Israel is a Country, and has every right to protect their interests, borders, and 

citizens, but their being in that land has nothing to do with Biblical promises!

Ancient Israel was promised that land, on very specific conditions! They 

apostatized and God first scattered the Northern Kingdom, 

then the Southern Kingdom a century later!


They returned from their Babylonian Captivity, retook the land, then blew it 

again.


There is no 3rd promise to any Ethnic Israel!
