God’s Covenants with Israel (This is in Part 1)
Is the Abrahamic Covenant Still in Force?

Are the Covenants Made Null And Void Because of Israel’s Disobedience?
Canaan Land or Palestine?

How you interpret Bible prophecy will depend on how you view the Abrahamic Covenants.  How you interpret the Abrahamic Covenants will determine how you apply the Scriptures to Israel and to the Church.  Many who believe that God has set aside the covenants with Israel believe that the promises given to Israel have been transferred to the Church.  They see the Church as having replaced Israel in God’s plan.  People that believe this way are called Replacement Theologians.  The question is: Are God’s covenants with Israel still in force?   

There are at least six covenants that God has established in the Bible that are still in effect including the Noahic Covenant, the Mosaic Covenant, the  Seed Covenant, the Canaan Land Covenant, the Davidic Covenant, and the New Covenant.  The Abrahamic Covenant is composed of the  Seed Covenant, the Canaan Land Covenant, the Davidic Covenant, and the New Covenant.  To decide whether the covenants still apply to Israel we must answer two questions: (1) Were the covenants unconditional and (2) Were the covenants stated by God to be  everlasting or forever?.  
An unconditional covenant is based upon the “I will” of God.  In an unconditional covenant, the fulfillment of the covenant is not conditioned upon the obedience of man.  The conditional covenant is based upon a “If man will, God will” scenario.  Of the six covenants included above, the only conditional covenant was the Mosaic Covenant.  For the Christian, the Mosaic Covenant has been set aside in the Lord Jesus Christ. Although the Mosaic Covenant was specifically given to Israel, its contents is written into the conscious of all of mankind.  The Mosaic Covenant is the standard of condemnation to all mankind.  The Noahic Covenant is an unconditional covenant that does not require the participation of mankind.   The Noahic Covenant was God’s unconditional, everlasting covenant with all of mankind that He would never entirely flood the earth again.  The Abrahamic Covenant is an unconditional covenant that God made with Abraham.  The covenant is unconditional because Abraham can do nothing to ensure or hinder its fulfillment.  However, the covenant could not come into force until Abraham believed God and left Ur of the Chaldees.  By faith, Abraham became a partaker of the covenant.  The covenant of salvation (part of the Seed Covenant) is also an everlasting, unconditional covenant.  The salvation covenant cannot come into effect for men or women until they believe God.  By faith, Christians become partakers of the covenant.  Salvation in the Lord Jesus Christ is THE standard of redemption for all of mankind.  Every covenant included in the Abrahamic Covenant is unconditional because the fulfillment of these covenants depend solely upon the faithfulness of God.  There is no action, or lack thereof, by mankind that can make void the covenant(s).  However, continued participation in the blessings of these covenants is based upon Israel’s obedience to the Mosaic Covenant.
Now, what about the question of whether these covenants are everlasting?  If the covenants are described as everlasting by God in the Bible, that means that they will continue forever.  If that is not so, then there are many assumptions that we could make including: (1) God did not know what the word everlasting meant; (2) God confused the Church and Israel;  (3) God did not know the future;  (4) God was deceived;  (5) God lied to us; (6) God did not know what Israel was going to do.  How outrageous does all that sound? The list could go on and on, but I believe the point has been made.  God knew exactly what Israel was going to do and yet God called these covenants everlasting. The following Scriptures apply to the everlasting nature of the different covenants contained within the Abrahamic Covenant (The specific covenant reference is enclosed in parenthesis with bold type):

Genesis 13:15 (Canaan Land Covenant)

Jeremiah 31:31-40 (Seed, New, and Canaan Land Covenants)
31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: 32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: 33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. 34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more. 35 Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts is his name: 36 If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever. 37 Thus saith the LORD; If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, saith the LORD. 38 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that the city shall be built to the LORD from the tower of Hananeel unto the gate of the corner. 39 And the measuring line shall yet go forth over against it upon the hill Gareb, and shall compass about to Goath. 40 And the whole valley of the dead bodies, and of the ashes, and all the fields unto the brook of Kidron, unto the corner of the horse gate toward the east, shall be holy unto the LORD; it shall not be plucked up, nor thrown down any more for ever.

Jeremiah 32:37-41 (New Covenant)
37 Behold, I will gather them out of all countries, whither I have driven them in mine anger, and in my fury, and in great wrath; and I will bring them again unto this place, and I will cause them to dwell safely: 38 And they shall be my people, and I will be their God: 39 And I will give them one heart, and one way, that they may fear me for ever, for the good of them, and of their children after them: 40 And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; but I will put my fear in their hearts, that they shall not depart from me. 41 Yea, I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will plant them in this land assuredly with my whole heart and with my whole soul.

Jeremiah 33:20-26 (Seed and Davidic Covenants)
20 Thus saith the LORD; If ye can break my covenant of the day, and my covenant of the night, and that there should not be day and night in their season; 21 Then may also my covenant be broken with David my servant, that he should not have a son to reign upon his throne; and with the Levites the priests, my ministers. 22 As the host of heaven cannot be numbered, neither the sand of the sea measured: so will I multiply the seed of David my servant, and the Levites that minister unto me. 23 Moreover the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, saying, 24 Considerest thou not what this people have spoken, saying, The two families which the LORD hath chosen, he hath even cast them off? thus they have despised my people, that they should be no more a nation before them. 25 Thus saith the LORD; If my covenant be not with day and night, and if I have not appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth; 26 Then will I cast away the seed of Jacob, and David my servant, so that I will not take any of his seed to be rulers over the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob: for I will cause their captivity to return, and have mercy on them.

Ezekiel 16:60-63 (New Covenant)
60 Nevertheless I will remember my covenant with thee in the days of thy youth, and I will establish unto thee an everlasting covenant. 61 Then thou shalt remember thy ways, and be ashamed, when thou shalt receive thy sisters, thine elder and thy younger: and I will give them unto thee for daughters, but not by thy covenant. 62 And I will establish my covenant with thee; and thou shalt know that I am the LORD: 63 That thou mayest remember, and be confounded, and never open thy mouth any more because of thy shame, when I am pacified toward thee for all that thou hast done, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 37:15-28 (Seed, New, and Davidic Covenants)
15 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying, 16 Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions: 17 And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand. 18 And when the children of thy people shall speak unto thee, saying, Wilt thou not shew us what thou meanest by these? 19 Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand. 20 And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand before their eyes. 21 And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land: 22 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all: 23 Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwellingplaces, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God. 24 And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them. 25 And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children’s children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince for ever. 26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore. 27 My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 28 And the heathen shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.

Is there any question about the everlasting nature of these covenants?  We have cited 33 groups of  Old Testament Scriptures that prove the everlasting nature of each and every covenant under the Abrahamic Covenant.  What does the word everlasting mean?  It means never ending. Every one of these covenants is said to apply to Abraham and his seed through Isaac.  The Scriptures have presented verse stacked upon verse that state that these covenants apply to Israel and not the Church.  So there is a seed (spiritual and physical), a land (Canaan), a throne (David’s), and an everlasting relationship (the New Covenant) promised to Israel and its people.


The book of Hebrews is obviously written to Jewish Christians.  The New Covenant is mentioned quite frequently in the book of Hebrews.  In fact, the book of Hebrews sets up a contrast between the Old Covenant and the New Covenant.  It is a contrast between a mortal priesthood and the immortal priesthood of the Lord Jesus Christ.  It is a contrast between works and grace.  It is a contrast between the blood of the sacrifices and the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Old Covenant is a covenant of condemnation to eternal death.  The New Covenant is a covenant of salvation unto eternal life.  The New Covenant is both a national covenant and an individual covenant.  The New Covenant is a promise of resurrection from the grave of nations.  In almost every Scripture where the New Covenant is described, it is connected to a gathering out of the nations.  For a gathering out of the nations to take place, there must be a gathering into a new land.  That is why the New Covenant is connected both to the national salvation of Israel and the individual salvation of Jews.  That this is true is obvious from Jeremiah 31:31-40, Jeremiah 32:37-41, Ezekiel 11:17-20, and Ezekiel 36:24-28.  The whole plan comes together in Ezekiel 37:15-28 where we see a restatement of the Abrahamic Covenant.  Once again the covenant is called an everlasting covenant.  Hebrews 8:8-12 and Hebrews 10:16-17 are a New Testament statement to the continuing nature of the covenant promised in the Scriptures from Jeremiah 31:31-34.  These Scriptures state:

Hebrews 8:8-12
8 For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: 9 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord. 10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: 11 And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest. 12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.

Hebrews 10:16-17
16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; 17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.

Hebrews 12:23-24 and Hebrews 13:20 once again testify to the everlasting nature of this covenant:
Hebrews 12:23-24
23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.

Hebrews 13:20
20 Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant.

That Paul expected this covenant to be a continuing covenant is obvious from
Acts 26:6-7, Romans 9:4-10, Romans 11:1-2, Romans 11:26-27, Romans 15:8, Hebrews 8:8-12, Hebrews 10:16-17, Hebrews 12:23-24, and Hebrews 13:20.  For the Jew, the promises of the New Covenant are also linked to the spiritual seed of the Seed Covenant.


Romans 4, Romans 11, Galatians 3, and Ephesians 2 state that the spiritual benefits under the Seed Covenant apply to the Gentiles.  This means that all Gentiles who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ are the spiritual seed of Abraham.  Romans 4:9-16, Romans 11:11, Galatians 3:26-29, and Ephesians 2:11-16 say:

Romans 4:9-16
9 Cometh this blessedness then upon the circumcision only, or upon the uncircumcision also? for we say that faith was reckoned to Abraham for righteousness. 10 How was it then reckoned? when he was in circumcision, or in uncircumcision? Not in circumcision, but in uncircumcision. 11 And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had yet being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed unto them also: 12 And the father of circumcision to them who are not of the circumcision only, but who also walk in the steps of that faith of our father Abraham, which he had being yet uncircumcised. 13 For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. 14 For if they which are of the law be heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect: 15 Because the law worketh wrath: for where no law is, there is no transgression. 16 Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,

Romans 11:11
11 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy.

Galatians 3:26-29
26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

Ephesians 2:11-16
11 Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; 12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: 13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. 14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; 15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; 16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:

The phrase “the promise(s)” is another Bible term that refers to the Abrahamic Covenants.  Romans 4:13 says that the promises came to the Gentiles (uncircumcision) through the righteousness of faith.  Romans 11:11 says that salvation came to the Gentiles through the fall of the Jews.  Romans 11 is clear that the Jews have not been set aside permanently.  Theirs is a TEMPORARY blindness until the fulness of the Gentiles be brought in. Galatians 3: 28 says that the promises of the Seed Covenant apply to both the Jew and the Greek (Gentile).  Ephesians 2:11-16 makes it clear that both the Jew and the Gentiles are both heirs to the covenants of promise.  The Lord Jesus Christ Himself has extended the invitation to become partakers in the Covenant to all nations through what is commonly called “The Great Commission (Commandment)”.  Matthew 28:19-20 says:

Matthew 28:19-20
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.


For the worldly, apostate church of today the most controversial of the Abrahamic Covenants is the Canaan Land Covenant.  We have already proved that everyone of the Abrahamic Covenants are still in effect.  Today, if you are going to stand for the right of Israel to the Promised Land you are going  to have to be prepared for a lot of heat from today’s apostate, effeminate church that will not stand for anything, but will fall for every false doctrine that blows in off the Satanic seas of unbelief and anti-Semitism.  In today’s world, it will take convictions and not preferences to stand for Israel. Any church that will not stand for Israel cannot be in full fellowship with God.   Most churches in America today are anti-Israel and pro “Palestinian”.  Any church that will not stand for Israel cannot receive the blessings of God and is under the curse of God.  Genesis 12:3 says: “ 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”.  We say again that the violence perpetrated against Jews and Bible believing Christians by the Roman Catholic Church, Martin Luther and his followers,  John Calvin and his followers, Ulrich Zwingli and his followers, the Anglican Church in England and America,  and any other persecutor in any land is worse than the Islamic terror of today because so-called “Christians” ought to know better.  The god of this world, Satan, is hell bent on the destruction of Israel, Bible believing Christians, and all Jews.  The Muslims know no peace with Israel until they have destroyed the last Jew living on the face of this earth.  One Muslim leader after another has stated that the battle with Israel is not about borders, but is about the very existence of Israel.
The promises concerning the Canaan Land Covenant are a major subject in the Old Testament.  The promise of the land and its boundaries is the subject of
Genesis 12:7, Genesis 13:15, Genesis 15:18, Genesis 17:8, Genesis 24:7, Genesis 26:4, Exodus 23:27-31, Exodus 32:13, Numbers 34:1-12, Deuteronomy 1:6-8, Deuteronomy 11:22-24, Joshua 1:2-4, 1 Kings 4:21, 2 Chronicles 9:26, Psalm 105:6-11, Isaiah 60:21, and Ezekiel 37:25 Genesis 17:8 says that the land has been given for an everlasting possession. Exodus 32:13  states that Israel shall inherit the land for ever. Psalm 105:10-11 declares the covenant to be everlasting.  Isaiah 60:21 states that they shall inherit the land forever.  Jeremiah 25:5 states that the land was given to Israel for ever and ever.  Jeremiah 32:40-41 says that God will make an everlasting covenant with them and plant them in the land.  Ezekiel 37:25 declares that the children of Israel will dwell in the land forever.  Ezekiel 11:17, Ezekiel 20:42, and Ezekiel 34:13 speak of a time when God will gather the children of Israel into their own land.  Genesis 15:18 roughly sets the boundaries for this land called the Promised Land.
While Genesis 15:18 gives the general outline for the boundaries for the Promised Land, Exodus 23:27-31, Numbers 34:1-12, Deuteronomy 1:6-8, Deuteronomy 11:22-24, and Joshua 1:2-4 give some fairly specific details on the boundaries.  These Scriptures state:

Genesis 15:18
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:

Exodus 23:27-31
27 I will send my fear before thee, and will destroy all the people to whom thou shalt come, and I will make all thine enemies turn their backs unto thee. 28 And I will send hornets before thee, which shall drive out the Hivite, the Canaanite, and the Hittite, from before thee. 29 I will not drive them out from before thee in one year; lest the land become desolate, and the beast of the field multiply against thee. 30 By little and little I will drive them out from before thee, until thou be increased, and inherit the land. 31 And I will set thy bounds from the Red sea even unto the sea of the Philistines, and from the desert unto the river: for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand; and thou shalt drive them out before thee.

Numbers 34:1-12
1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 2 Command the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come into the land of Canaan; (this is the land that shall fall unto you for an inheritance, even the land of Canaan with the coasts thereof:) 3 Then your south quarter shall be from the wilderness of Zin along by the coast of Edom, and your south border shall be the outmost coast of the salt sea eastward: 4 And your border shall turn from the south to the ascent of Akrabbim, and pass on to Zin: and the going forth thereof shall be from the south to Kadeshbarnea, and shall go on to Hazaraddar, and pass on to Azmon: 5 And the border shall fetch a compass from Azmon unto the river of Egypt, and the goings out of it shall be at the sea. 6 And as for the western border, ye shall even have the great sea for a border: this shall be your west border. 7 And this shall be your north border: from the great sea ye shall point out for you mount Hor: 8 From mount Hor ye shall point out your border unto the entrance of Hamath; and the goings forth of the border shall be to Zedad: 9 And the border shall go on to Ziphron, and the goings out of it shall be at Hazarenan: this shall be your north border. 10 And ye shall point out your east border from Hazarenan to Shepham: 11 And the coast shall go down from Shepham to Riblah, on the east side of Ain; and the border shall descend, and shall reach unto the side of the sea of Chinnereth eastward: 12 And the border shall go down to Jordan, and the goings out of it shall be at the salt sea: this shall be your land with the coasts thereof round about.

Deuteronomy 1:6-8
6 The LORD our God spake unto us in Horeb, saying, Ye have dwelt long enough in this mount: 7 Turn you, and take your journey, and go to the mount of the Amorites, and unto all the places nigh thereunto, in the plain, in the hills, and in the vale, and in the south, and by the sea side, to the land of the Canaanites, and unto Lebanon, unto the great river, the river Euphrates. 8 Behold, I have set the land before you: go in and possess the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give unto them and to their seed after them.

Deuteronomy 11:22-24
22 For if ye shall diligently keep all these commandments which I command you, to do them, to love the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, and to cleave unto him; 23 Then will the LORD drive out all these nations from before you, and ye shall possess greater nations and mightier than yourselves. 24 Every place whereon the soles of your feet shall tread shall be yours: from the wilderness and Lebanon, from the river, the river Euphrates, even unto the uttermost sea shall your coast be.

Joshua 1:2-4
2 Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou, and all this people, 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 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.

There are a lot of details in these Scriptures.  A major problem with them is exactly pinpointing them on a modern map.  A problem with determining the locations is that several of the cities called out in these Scriptures have been destroyed.  However, there is enough information given to get a good idea of what the boundaries ARE.  The western border is the Mediterranean Sea.  The northern border is on a line that runs roughly due east from a little north of Tripoli, Lebanon to intersect the Euphrates River just north of Tikrik, Iraq.  The southern border would run on a line drawn from the tip of the Red Sea to intersect the River of Egypt at a right angle.  The eastern border would run roughly on a line drawn from the tip of the Red Sea in the southwest to the Euphrates River in the northeast.  These boundaries would include much of Lebanon, Jordan, portions of Syria including Damascus, and some of Iraq.  To see a map of this Covenant click HERE (The map may load slow on many computers). The majority of people argue that this promise was fulfilled to Israel during the reign of Solomon.  They say that all the land was occupied and ruled by Solomon.  While we agree that Israel occupied most of the Promised Land under Solomon, we do not believe that Israel occupied the land to the fullest extent guaranteed under the covenant.  But that really is not the point.  We could argue from here to eternity about what the borders actually were and whether Israel has actually occupied the territory specified in the Canaan Land Covenant.  The one thing that we cannot argue about is the timeless nature of the covenant.
God declares the covenant to be everlasting.  If the covenant is everlasting, it makes not one whit of difference whether Israel at one time occupied all of the land promised to them. The question is: Has Israel occupied that land eternally (that is what everlasting means)? The answer to that question is obvious to anyone that is not willfully blind.  If you had to temporarily move to a foreign land and some foreign squatter moved into your house while you were gone, would that house still be yours when you returned even though you had not occupied it for many years?  Of course, it would still be yours.  The so-called “Palestinians” are Satan’s squatters.  The land does not belong to the “Palestinians”, the Lebanese, the Syrians, or the Iraqis.  Just as there was resistence when the children of Israel first came into the Promised Land (Canaan) the first time, there has been much resistence to the return of Israel to the land that God has promised them for an everlasting possession.

Many argue that the covenants have been made null and void because of Israel’s disobedience.  That is not true for several reasons.  We have already proved that God has stated that the covenants are  both (1) everlasting, and (2) unconditional.  God would not have called the covenants everlasting if their fulfillment were based upon the obedience or faithfulness of man.  Even the best of mankind is disobedient and unfaithful to God.  The guarantee for the fulfillment of the covenants was not based upon the works of man, but rather the work and faithfulness of God.  The fact that God would not allow Abraham to participate in the ceremony that sealed the covenant means that the covenant would not be conditioned on the actions or obedience of Abraham or his seed.  In instance after instance we can document the disobedience of the children of Israel in the books of Exodus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, 1 Samuel, 2 Samuel, 1 Kings, 2 Kings, 1 Chronicles, 2 Chronicles, and the prophets.  They were a wicked people just like we are.  Yet, God continues to state that the covenants are everlasting in the books of the law, the historical books, the Psalms, and in the prophets.  Even in the midst of  wholesale apostasy and idolatry, God time and again reaffirms the covenants through the prophets Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel.  So, are the covenants made null and void by disobedience?  Psalm 89:30-34 clearly states:
Psalm 89:30-34
30 If his children forsake my law, and walk not in my judgments; 31 If they break my statutes, and keep not my commandments; 32 Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes. 33 Nevertheless my lovingkindness will I not utterly take from him, nor suffer my faithfulness to fail. 34 My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.

Did you hear that?  God says that in spite of their disobedience He will not break His covenant.

God again plainly states in Romans 11:1-2, 26-27:

Romans 11:1-2, 26-27
1 I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. 2 God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel, saying, 26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: 27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.

Based upon the Scriptural evidence, we would have to conclude that the covenants are absolutely everlasting and unconditional.  The covenants cannot be set aside by the actions of fickle mankind.  They are God’s covenants.


Earlier we made the statement that the covenant concerning the land is wrongfully referred to by many Baptists as the Palestinian Covenant. Christians should never, never, ever refer to the land of Israel as Palestine.  There never has been a “Palestinian” people.  In the list of nations given in Genesis 15:19-21 that would be driven out of the land of Canaan for Israel to possess the land, you do not see the “Palestinians” listed simply because they never have existed.  Read it for yourself.  The term Palestine is a derogatory name that was given to the lands of Israel after their revolt against the Roman empire.  The name was changed to Palestine by the Romans in 135 A.D. to mock and shame  the Jewish people by naming the land after their ancient, extinct enemies the Philistines.  The name Palestine and Palestinian is used to this day to taunt the Jewish people.  You will not find the name Palestine anywhere in the Bible except in Joel 3:4.  However, it is interesting that this name Palestine would occur in the context of a scripture that promises judgement and destruction upon anyone who takes it upon themselves to divide the land that God has promised to His chosen people the Jews.  God said in Joel 3:2:

Joel 3:2
I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.

The so-called  “Palestinians” are the leading advocates of land for “peace” deals that are nothing more than a pretext to buy more time for the destruction of Israel and the murder of innocent women and children.  Time after time so-called peace proposals have called for Israel to give up more and more land for a false peace.  God has said that this is not his will and will bring judgment upon those who participate in it.  (Even so, come Lord Jesus...PLEASE).  Although God has given Israel title deed to the land, He refers to it as “my land” in Joel 3:2.  
The name Palestina is used in Exodus 15:14, Isaiah 14:29, and Isaiah 14:31.The Bible names that are used to describe the Jewish homeland are Israel, Judaea, Samaria, Galilee, the promised land, or Canaan.  There is no such Biblical land as Palestine.  There never has been a Palestinian people. The “Palestinians”  are nothing but nomadic political pawns of Satanic Islamic political regimes  used by Satan and his Islamic brothers to constantly stir up strife and hatred of the Jewish people.
In the light of Genesis 12:3, Joel 3:2,  and Matthew 25:31-46 we need to be very careful about how we treat Israel.  Matthew 25:31-46 is a restatement by the Lord Jesus Christ of the blessings and curses tied to the Abrahamic Covenant given to Abram (Abraham) in Genesis 12:3.  Matthew 25:31-46 says:

Matthew 25:31-46
31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: 32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: 33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. 34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. 37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? 39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. 41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

The brethren of the Lord Jesus Christ are the Jewish people.
We have been told the LIE time and again that Islam is a religion of peace, but nothing could be further from the truth.  Many of our distinguished and deceived religious and political leaders have stated that the God of Christianity and Judaism is the god of Islam.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  The god of Islam does not have a son. The God of Christianity and Judaism loves Israel.  The god of Islam hates Jews and Christians. The god of Islam and the god of Roman Catholicism converts with a bloody sword.  The God of the Bible converts with the sword of the spirit which is the Word of God.  The god of Islam is the reincarnation of the Old Testament Baal. How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word (1 Kings 18:21).  Islam is hell bent on the destruction of Israel, America, Jews, and Christians. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape (1 Thessalonians 5:3).  For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace (Jeremiah 6:14).  There can be no peace without the Prince of Peace; who is the Lord Jesus Christ.  Islam was founded by that demon possessed sexual pervert and child molester Mohammad.  Mohammad’s methods of “evangelism” were taught to him by Roman Catholicism.  Convert or die!  That’s what the Crusades were all about: two pagan religions fighting one another and who had  common enemies; Jews and Bible believing Christians. During the Crusades, millions of Christians and Jews died at the edge of the Roman Catholic sword.  The founder of Islam is that old dragon and serpent Satan.  The founder of Catholicism is that old dragon and serpent Satan.  
Any covenant or treaty with Islam is a covenant with hell and death. Islam and Catholicism are strange bedfellows that are a part of the harlot of Revelation 17.  The battle in the Middle East is not a battle over land, resources, or politics.  It is battle for the very survival of Israel and the Jewish people.   It is a spiritual battle between God (Jehovah of the Bible) and the Devil.  The objective of the Satanically controlled Arabs, Turks, Iranians (Persians), Ethiopians, Egyptians, Syrians, Libyans, Russians, and etcetera is the destruction of Israel and the murder of the Jewish people.  Pardon the bad English, but it ain’t gonna happen.  We should be wary of the recent love affair between Iran, Turkey, Syria, and the so called “Palestinians”.  Take a look also at the former vassal states of southern Russia that have embraced Islam.  They are also a part of the forces that will attack Israel in Ezekiel 38-39.  Take a look at the recent love affair between Turkmenistan and Iran.  What is the quasi official religion of Russia?  It is Eastern Orthodoxy as practiced by the Russian Orthodox Church.  The iconic birds of Eastern Orthodoxy are preparing to make their flight back to Rome.   In fact, most of the world’s Protestants have been cooing up to the vulture of Roman Catholicism.  Little wonder when Roman Catholicism is the cage of every unclean and hateful bird and the habitation of devils (Revelation 18:2).  Consider this also: the 1994 Roman Catholic Catechism refers to the Muslims as brothers of Roman Catholics.  That is rightfully so since they both worship Baal and the Queen of Heaven. Unlike Bible believing Christians, Muslims and Roman Catholics do not worship the God of the Bible , but rather the god of this world who is none other than the dragon, that old serpent, which is the devil, and Satan. The Russian coalition of Ezekiel 38-39 that will be destroyed on the mountains of Israel is an anti-Semitic Satanic horde. The one-world coalition that will meet its doom at Armageddon is an anti-Semitic Satanic horde.  The common serpentine trait that slithers through them all is that they all hate Jews and Bible believing Christians.  We know from Revelation 13 and 17 that the hordes of Armageddon are a political and religious system under the control of the Antichrist and the False Prophet.  This false religious system is the devil’s melting pot for every false religion under the sun including apostate Christianity (Rome and her Harlots), Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Shintoism, and etcetera.  The Antichrist is a religious political leader and the False Prophet is a Satanic religious leader.  I keep hammering the fact that they all hate Jews and Bible believing Christians because true Christians are of the spiritual seed of Abraham.    
If you would like to do further research into the “Palestinian” issue, we would encourage to get the book “Judgment Day” by Dave Hunt.  It is an in depth analysis of the current status of this issue written from an uncompromising Bible believing point of view. If you want to see the hypocrisy of world political leaders, Islam, and much of professing Christianity toward Israel, this is the book to read. If you want a more in depth history of the persecution of Jews and Bible believing Christians by Roman Catholicism, we suggest the book “A Woman Rides The Beast” by Dave Hunt.  If you would like to do even further research into the “Palestinian” issue, we would encourage to get the book “From Time Immemorial, The Origins Of The Arab-Jewish Conflict Over Palestine” by Joan Peters.  It may be the most throughly researched secular book available on this issue.  When this lady set out to research this book, she started out with the idea that the so-called “Palestinians” were the victims in this conflict.  So, her starting premise was a pro “Palestinian” position.  I quote a statement she made about herself in the very first sentences of chapter 1 of her book:

“It was not until this book was well underway that I reluctantly confronted the historical factors underlying the “Palestinian problem.” The book was originally meant to be solely an investigation of the current plight of the “Arab refugees,” as that subject was then generally known...From that starting point, I came to learn that the Arabs weren’t the only unfortunates who fled from their homes at the time of the Arab-Israeli War of Independence.  Because I’d assumed that Arab refugees from Israel were the “Middle East refugees,” I was startled to find that, also around 1948, whole Jewish populations from numerous Arab countries had been forced to flee as refugees to Israel and elsewhere in the world”. (pages 3-4)

In her book, she documents the chicanery and duplicity of the United States’ State Department and the British Foreign Office in dealing with the persecution and murder of Jews by all of the governments in the Middle East and Hitler's Third Reich.  The United States’ State Department and most American diplomats have always been predominantly anti-Israel.  Were it not for President Harry Truman going against the advice of most of his senior advisers, both in and out of the State Department, the United States would not have been the first country to recognize Israel after she declared statehood.  Thank God for President Harry Truman!
