Israel Owns Gaza
Israel Owns Gaza
God promised the land of Israel (Palestine) to Abraham’s seed:
“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:” (Genesis 15:18)
The great river of Egypt is the Nile River which is southwest of Gaza. The Euphrates River is on the other side of Gaza, northeast of Israel. Therefore, God declared in this Bible verse that all of the land of Israel (including Gaza) belongs to the seed of Abraham only -- and to no one else.
Many peoples came out of Abraham. Abraham had two sons, Ishmael and Isaac. The Arab people descended from Ishmael and the Jewish people descended from Jacob, (also named Israel), Isaac’s son. (See Genesis 25:12-26)
God plainly declared to Abraham that the seed of Abraham would come through Isaac, and not through Ishmael:
“And God said unto Abraham,... for in Isaac shall thy seed be called.” (Genesis 21:12)
God said that the “seed” of Abraham would come through Israel (Jacob) and not through Ishmael (the Arabs). God also said that the land of Gaza belongs to this same “seed” of Abraham, which is Israel. (See Genesis 35:9-12)
The Palestinians are not the Jews. Therefore, Palestinians do not own the land of Gaza, which God has already given to the Jews, God’s chosen people of Israel. The inheritance of Gaza belongs to Israel alone.
Jesus Himself gave us a parable about a group of “wicked men” who tried to take some land that did not belong to them by attacking and killing Jews, including the Jew who was the rightful heir of that land. Jesus declared judgment upon those wicked men:
“Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country: And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it. And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another. Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise. But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son. But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance. And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him. When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen? They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.” (Matthew 21:33-41)
The Palestinians do not own the land of Gaza. God said that the Jews own it and no one else. God Himself promised to personally curse those who attack Abraham’s seed (the Jews) and that He would bless those who bless the Jews:
“And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.” (Genesis 12:3)
Hamas is cursed because they have cursed and are cursing Israel. Israel will not be destroyed by Hamas, but as with Hitler and all other Anti-Semites, God always curses them.
Military attacks have come against Israel time and again, (such as the Six Day War and Yom Kippur War), but the attackers were always cursed by God and defeated by God. Attacks by Hamas will not be any different. God will bless Israel. God will curse Hamas. God keeps His promises!
If you curse the Jews and support Hamas, God will curse you. If you want God’s blessing, you must bless the Jews. Christian Zionists bless the Jews. Do you?
