PLAINER WORDS ONLINE … PROMISES TO ISRAEL WERE FULFILLED
Approximately 4000 years ago the three promises God made to Abraham have been completely fulfilled. The Three Promises were related to the three following Promises:
1. Great nation promise
2. Land promise
3. Seed Promise
The Bible informs us that about 4000 years ago the LORD chose a man by the name of Abram (later his name was changed to Abraham). God called him out in Genesis 12:1-4, and chooses to reward him. In Genesis 15:18, the LORD said that his descendants would have their own country (to wit, their own nation). That country would between the river of Egypt and the Euphrates River. This land is sometimes referred to as the Promised Land.
The Book of Genesis also explains that this promise of land to the descendants of Abraham was inherited by Abraham’s son—Isaac, and then by Abraham’s grandson, Jacob. Jacob was the father of the Twelve Tribes of Israel. The nationhood prophecy was fulfilled about 3400 years ago, by the Hebrew descendants of Abraham who first established Israel. The “Book of Joshua” explains how the man of God, Joshua, led the Israelites into the land that had been promised to them. As the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob established the Nation of Israel under the direction of Joshua, who was the direct conduit of Yahweh.
MOST ALL OF CHRISTIANITY HAVE BOUGHT INTO THE SATANIC LIE
The “Satanic Lie” is that Zionist Judaism and Zionist Christians collaborated to have promoted the hoax that on May 14, 1948 the United Nations and the U.S.A. recognized the founding of the present State of Israel. The Zionists Movement resolutely confirmed and still do that God fulfilled His Promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob on the Day of May 14, 1948. This Lie is the Grand Hoax. This Old Testament Prophecy was NOT FULFILLED any time during the current Dispensation of the Grace of God (70 A.D to the Present Year of A.D. 2017). Prophecies are not being fulfilled during the Dispenation of Grace!!! Even to erroneously believe that the Abrahamic Promise was fulfilled in May 1948 that would mean the promise was fulfilled 3,323 years after the Promise was made. This would mean that God was certainly SLACK concerning His bringing His Promises to fruition.
WAS THE 1948 FOUNDING OF TODAY’S ISRAEL A FULFILLING OF THE ABRAHAMIC PROMISE?
To accept the Satanic Sham, that the founding of Israel in May 1948 was the fulfillment of God’s Promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is to be deceived. The Scriptures makes it abundantly clear that every facet and issue of the Abrahamic Promise to the Fathers of Israel were fulfilled to the very letter.
The answer is found in God’s Word—follow along and determine for yourself did the 1948 acts of the U.S. Congress and the United Nations fulfill the LORD’S Promise to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and their descendants.
“Now after the death of Moses the servant of the LORD it came to pass, that the LORD spake unto Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' minister, saying, 2. Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou (Joshua), and all this people (the children of Israel), unto the land which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel. 3. Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I (the LORD) said unto Moses. 4. From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your coast. 5. There shall not any man be able to stand before thee (Joshua) all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. 6. Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them” (Joshua 1:1-6).
The Book of Joshua continually mentions that the Promises of God were completely fulfilled, and we even read where Joshua distributed the Land of Promise to the families as part of their inheritance.
Notice, Joshua 14:8-9; “Nevertheless my brethren that went up with me made the heart of the people melt: but I wholly followed the LORD my God. And Moses sware on that day, saying, Surely the land whereon thy feet [Joshua] have trodden shall be thine inheritance, and thy children's for ever, because thou hast wholly followed the LORD my God.”
THE YEAR OF 1444 B. C.
It is found in Joshua, Chapters 13 through 22, that the LORD begins, through Joshua, allotting the Land of Promise to the Twelve Tribes. This is a historical fact. God began fulfilling His Promise 3,392 years before the “Counterfeit Fulfillment,” on May 14, 1948 was formed.
Please note, here, Joshua’s exhortation to Israel as an aged man in Joshua 23.
“1 And it came to pass a long time after that the LORD had given rest unto Israel from all their enemies round about, that Joshua waxed old and stricken in age. 2 And Joshua called for all Israel, and for their elders, and for their heads, and for their judges, and for their officers, and said unto them, I am old and stricken in age: And ye have seen all that the LORD your God hath done unto all these nations because of you; for the LORD your God is He that hath fought for you. 4 Behold, I have divided unto you by lot these nations that remain, to be an inheritance for your tribes, from Jordan, with all the nations that I have cut off, even unto the great sea westward.”
The size of Israel in 2014 was officially measured to be 7,821 square miles which was comparable to our state of New Jersey. According to the CIA World Facebook says that it measures 8, 019 square miles. An Old Testament Map of the Promised Land was 60,000 square miles large. O.T. Map showed Canaan was 6,600 square miles.
ISRAEL BEGINS TAKE TO POSSESSION OF THE PROMISED LAND IN THE YEAR OF 1444 B.C.
“6 Be ye therefore very courageous to keep and to do all that is written in the book of the law of Moses, that ye turn not aside therefrom to the right hand or to the left; 7 That ye come not among these nations, these that remain among you; neither make mention of the name of their gods, nor cause to swear by them, neither serve them, nor bow yourselves unto them: 8 But cleave unto the LORD your God, as ye have done unto this day.
9 For the LORD hath driven out from before you great nations and strong: but as for you, no man hath been able to stand before you unto this day.10 One man of you shall chase a thousand: for the LORD your God, He it is that fighteth for you, as He hath promised you. 11 Take good heed therefore unto yourselves, that ye love the LORD-- your God. 12 Else if ye do in any wise go back, and cleave unto the remnant of these nations, even these that remain among you, and shall make marriages with them, and go in unto them, and they to you: 13 Know for a certainty that the LORD your God will no more drive out any of these nations from before you; but they shall be snares and traps unto you, and scourges in your sides, and thorns in your eyes, until ye perish from off this good land which the LORD your God hath given you.14 And, behold, this day I [Joshua] am going the way of all the earth: and ye know in all your hearts and in all your souls, that not one thing hath failed of all the good things which the LORD your God spake concerning you; all are come to pass unto you, and not one thing hath failed thereof.15 Therefore it shall come to pass, that as all good things are come upon you, which the LORD your God promised you; so shall the LORD bring upon you all evil things, until he have destroyed you from off this good land which the LORD your God hath given you.16 When ye have transgressed the covenant of the LORD your God, which he commanded you, and have gone and served other gods, and bowed yourselves to them; then shall the anger of the LORD be kindled against you, and ye shall perish quickly from off the good land which he hath given unto you” (Joshua 23:6-16).
Again, Joshua declared that all of the Promises God made to Israel have COME TO PASS—not one was left unfulfilled! The Word of God said this, I believe it, THAT SETTLES IT!
ZIONISTS JUDAISM AND ZIONIST CHRISTIANS INSPITE OF WHAT SAITH THE SCRIPTURE CONTINUE TO INSIST THAT THE FOUNDNG OF PRESENT DAY ISRAEL IN 1948 WAS THE FULFILLMENT OF THE ANCIENT PROPHECY FIRST RECORDED IN GENESIS 12:1-4.
After asserting that the Three Promises made to Israel have been fulfilled, Joshua also issues a warning to the children of Israel, that there will be consequences to endure if they forsake the LORD their God’s Guidance. We will consider this verse again.
Consider verse 15 again. It declares that if Israel lapses into evil they will forfeit their inheritance of the Promised Land. God’s real Israel have suffered the penalty of being displaced. The “Israel of God,” today, is known only by God. They will be officially identified during the next Dispensation—The Day of Jesus Christ.
After delivering the words of God to Israel Joshua tells them that this will be his last day—And, behold, this day, Joshua said, “I am going the way of all the earth: and ye know in all your hearts and in all your souls, that not one thing hath failed of all the good things which the LORD your God spake concerning you; all are come to pass unto you, and not one thing hath failed thereof.”
In plainer words, every promise the Lord made to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob regarding their descendents (the children of Israel) came to pass came in 1444 B.C.—they were FULFILLED UNDER JOSHUA!!! NOT UNDER AMERICA OR THE UN in 1948 as was in today’s Israel.
“15 Therefore it shall come to pass, that as all good things are come upon you, which the LORD your God promised you; so shall the LORD bring upon you all evil things, until He have destroyed you from off this good land which the LORD your God hath given you.”
These Three Promises God covenanted with the three Patriarchs: (1) The Great Nation Promise, (2) The Land Promise, and (3) The Seed Promise.
Just as surely as the Promises of God regarding the good things came to pass, so did the evil things such as displacement and destruction that came about because they apostatized. After the founding of the Promised Kingdom of Israel and many years of glory as promised, apostasy set in. God fulfilled His promise to Israel of their demise. The Northern Kingdom of Israel lost its independence when it was conquered by Assyria about 2,700 years ago, and when the Kingdom of Judah was conquered by Babylon and lost its independence about 2,600 years ago.
“16 When ye have transgressed the covenant of the LORD your God, which He commanded you, and have gone and served other gods, and bowed yourselves to them; then shall the anger of the LORD be kindled against you, and ye shall perish quickly from off the good land which He hath given unto you.” This too was accomplished by the LORD.
The student must pay close attention to this verse—Joshua 23:16. Israel got all the Land that the Lord had promised. Likewise, they lost the Promised Land because of her unfaithfulness.
The conclusion of the matter is summed up in Joshua 21:43-45; “43 And the LORD gave unto Israel all the land which He sware to give unto their fathers; and they possessed it, and dwelt therein. 44 And the LORD gave them rest round about, according to all that He sware unto their fathers: and there stood not a man of all their enemies before them; the LORD delivered all their enemies into their hand.45 There failed not ought of any good thing which the LORD had spoken unto the house of Israel; ALL CAME TO PASS”
The Promises were fulfilled n 4,400 B.C.Verse 45, in plainer words, says, “Not one of all the Lord’s good promises to Israel failed; every one was fulfilled.” The Lord Jesus Christ didn’t have anything to do with the claim that today’s Israel was the fulfillment of His Promises. This false claim is a ruse formulated by Satan.
