"The Land..."

“The Land…”

Blessings folk!

God makes Covenant.
God keeps Covenant.

Read the passage again…giving close attention to the new/last verse…

1Ch 16:15-18
Remember His covenant forever,
The word which He commanded to a thousand generations,
The covenant which He made with Abraham,
And His oath to Isaac.
He also confirmed it to Jacob for a statute,
To Israel as an everlasting covenant,
Saying, “To you I will give the land of Canaan,
As the portion of your inheritance.”

His covenant is forever.
We are to remember.
He made covenant with Abraham.
He reiterated it to Isaac.
He confirmed it to Jacob.
It is a statute to Israel…an everlasting covenant.
We as Gentiles, the nations, are grafted in…

Part of the covenant was this…
To give to them the land of Canaan…as the portion of their inheritance.

The Land is promised by God.

Therefore, the political machinations of the day to “bring peace” by “land swaps” goes against the covenant promise of God.

When Israel does so, they are denying the covenant of the Lord.

The truth is this.
Israel has never had all the Land that the Lord has granted.
The day is coming…

Are you ready?

Are you in correct, covenant relationship with the Lord?
