Israel Belongs To the Jews and Heaven Belongs to You!
Ps 135:10-12 Who smote great nations, and slew mighty kings; Sihon king of the Amorites, and Og king of Bashan, and all the kingdoms of Canaan: And gave their land for an heritage, an heritage unto Israel his people.
Could you imagine how simple things would be if everyone in Europe and the Arab world would just understand that God has given the land of Israel to His people, period!? It does not belong to the Palestinians, Russia cannot overthrow it, Ahmadenijad cannot annihilate it and Saudi Arabia cannot push His people into the sea.
The Word here says that God has given the land to the Israelis for an inheritance. He owns it, He has the rights to it, and He gave it to them.
In 1967, the Arab world came against it, in the Yom Kippur war they did so again, yet each time, it was confirmed, that inheritance belongs to Israel. When God grants an inheritance, it is irreversible and irrevocable.
So we look in I Peter, the first chapter, and find this promise to us, His children of the New Covenant: Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
Child of God, no matter what happens, no matter how fierce the attack of the enemy, you are promised an inheritance that can never be revoked. It is an incorruptible, undefiled home in heaven reserved for you.
Whatever heaviness or temptation, no matter the trial nor the fire, heaven awaits you who have been adopted into the King's family.
So keep on keeping on, depend on His grace and strength, knowing that soon, you will take up residence in your eternal home.
