God’s Land Grant to Abraham/Israel. What exactly is God’s Land Grant promise to Abraham and his seed, Israel.
Many followers of Israel have no idea just where the borders of Israel lie which were granted by God to Abraham and his chosen nation Israel. Below are some scriptures in the Old Testament which delineate these borders exactly.
The dark outlined area describes the Royal Land Grant from God to Israel through Abraham.
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:”
Ezekiel 48:1 “How these are the names of the tribes. From the north end to the coast of the way of Hethlon, as one goeth to Hamath, Hazar-enan, the border of Damascus northward, to the coast of Hamath; …”
Ezekiel 48:28- 29 “And by the border of Gad, at the south side southward, the border shall be even from Tamar unto the waters of strife in Kadesh, and to the river toward the great sea. “
I strongly recommend you read Ezekiel 48:1-29 to understand the division of the land between the tribes of Israel.
When will this happen? By reading prophetic Scripture, it is commonly believed that this will occur at the beginning of the Millennial Reign of Jesus the Messiah over Israel and the nations. Here is the chronology:
- First: This event is called by Christians “The Rapture” or the taking out of believers from the earth to ever be with the Lord and this happens prior to the beginning of The Great Tribulation. This Divine Delivery is for Jews and Gentiles who died as believers in Jesus the Messiah and likewise for believers who are still living. These “Raptured” ones are those, Jew and Gentile, who have made the decision to trust Jesus the Messiah as their personal Savior. This event can happen at any moment in the blink of an eye.
- Second: Seven years of great Tribulation on the earth, at the middle of which the person and identity of the Anti-christ will be revealed.
- Third: At the close of the Great Tribulation, the Nations of the World will gather against Israel in the Final Big Battle of Armageddon, believed to take place in the Valley of Megiddo in Israel. The Messiah returns with His legions and, by the word of His mouth and the brightness of His coming, He destroys the anti-christ and his minions who are the enemies of Israel. This is a final victory for Israel.
- Fourth: After this victory, Israel as a nation will realize and trust that Jesus is the Messiah. Jesus will finalize the Royal Land Grant to the Nation of Israel described in the illustration above and will rule and reign over the nations for One Thousand Years (Millennium) from the Throne of David in Jerusalem (The City of Peace).
So today, what are we to do to prepare?
If you have never done so, make a decision and personal choice to trust Jesus Christ, the Messiah, as your Savior — right now. He is THE Savior for Jew and Gentile alike but until you personally trust Him alone as YOUR Savior, His free gift of salvation will bypass you. Take His Free Gift.
