JD: You know I heard from the Sanhedrin leadership, the 70 wise Jewish scholars played a key role in the rebuilding of the next Temple. They do believe that President Trump is pushing Prime Minister Netanyahu to expand Israel’s borders to what is commanded there in the book of Deuteronomy. In fact lets talk about this matter of the Jewish people having a God given right to the land. How do you begin to lay out that from a Biblical prospective to build your case?
DJ: Well after the Tower of Babel judgement God raised up a nation that had never existed before beginning with Abraham. God made a Covenant with Abraham that he put into place in five stages. In Genesis chapters 12, 13, 15 and 17 the first promise is that Abraham will be a great nation and no nation can be great without land. Then in the next chapter the Lord gives some details about that land when he says in verse 14 lift your eyes now and look from the place where you are northward, southward, eastward and westward for all the land which you see I give to you and your descendants forever. And that term forever is crucial.
Then God gives even more details in the next chapter saying to your descendants I have given this land from the river of Egypt to the great river the river Euphrates. So we’re talking about a huge piece of land which by some estaminets is several times the size of Texas. The Land Covenant in Deuteronomy God promised to bring His people back from where ever they’re scattered across the face of the earth because of His judgments against their unfaithfulness. There’s been a progressive return of Jews to the land for well over a hundred years setting the stage for the ultimate fulfillment of those prophecies during the day of the Lord which will include both the Tribulation and the Millennia.
JD: David James, Bible in hand explaining the headline that the Jewish nation of Israel will have in the future a nation that geographically will be ten times what they have today.
We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
David James using the Bible, the word of God, he has detailed the plan God has for the Jewish people and in particular the size of the Jewish nation in the future. The Land Covenant, Deuteronomy 30 and in fact 38 additional passages of Scripture reveal that the final Jewish state will be ten times the amount of land that the Jewish people have today. The Land Covenant like all four of God’s Covenants to the Jewish people cannot be broken. Therefore the promised land will be in place for the Jews most likely in the very near future.
