Support the Land of Promise for Jews Through Israel


John R. Houk

© September 7, 2019

I am a HUGE supporter of Israel. I am not Jewish but I am a Christian Zionist. WHY? Because of God Almighty’s Promise to Abraham which proceeds through the lineage of Isaac rather than Ishmael or any other sons of Abraham. Here are some lengthy Old Testament excerpts solidifying God’s Promise to Abraham (Genesis 15: 2-5, 13-14, 16, 18-21; 17: 1-8, 15-19, 21; 21: 1-3, 9-10, 12; 22: 15-18 NKJV):

 

Genesis 15:2-5

 

But Abram said, “Lord God, what will You give me, seeing I [a]go childless, and the heir of my house is Eliezer of Damascus?” Then Abram said, “Look, You have given me no offspring; indeed one[b] born in my house is my heir!”

 

And behold, the word of the Lord came to him, saying, “This one shall not be your heir, but one who will come from your own body shall be your heir.” Then He brought him outside and said, “Look now toward heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them.” And He said to him, “So shall your descendants be.”

 

Genesis 15:13-14

 

13 Then He said to Abram: “Know certainly that your descendants will be strangers in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them, and they will afflict them four hundred years. 14 And also the nation whom they serve I will judge; afterward they shall come out with great possessions.

 

Genesis 15:16

 

16 But in the fourth generation they shall return here, for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet complete.”

 

Genesis 15:18-21

 

18 On the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying:

“To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the River Euphrates— 19 the Kenites, the Kenezzites, the Kadmonites, 20 the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Rephaim, 21 the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.”

 

Genesis 17:1-8

 

17 When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am [a]Almighty God; walk before Me and be blameless. And I will make My covenant between Me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly.” Then Abram fell on his face, and God talked with him, saying: “As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of [b]many nations. No longer shall your name be called [c]Abram, but your name shall be [d]Abraham; for I have made you a father of [e]many nations. I will make you exceedingly fruitful; and I will make nations of you, and kings shall come from you. And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and your descendants after you. Also I give to you and your descendants after you the land in[f] which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.”

 

Genesis 17:15-19

 

15 Then God said to Abraham, “As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her name Sarai, but [a]Sarah shall be her name. 16 And I will bless her and also give you a son by her; then I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of peoples shall be from her.”

 

17 Then Abraham fell on his face and laughed, and said in his heart, “Shall a child be born to a man who is one hundred years old? And shall Sarah, who is ninety years old, bear a child?18 And Abraham said to God, “Oh, that Ishmael might live before You!”

 

19 Then God said: “No, Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac; I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his descendants after him.

 

Genesis 17:21

 

21 But My covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom Sarah shall bear to you at this set time next year.”

 

Genesis 21:1-3

 

21 And the Lord visited Sarah as He had said, and the Lord did for Sarah as He had spoken. For Sarah conceived and bore Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him. And Abraham called the name of his son who was born to him—whom Sarah bore to him—Isaac.[a]

 

Genesis 21:9-10

 

And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had borne to Abraham, scoffing.[a] 10 Therefore she said to Abraham, “Cast out this bondwoman and her son; for the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, namely with Isaac.”

 

Genesis 21:12

 

12 But God said to Abraham, “Do not let it be displeasing in your sight because of the lad or because of your bondwoman. Whatever Sarah has said to you, listen to her voice; for in Isaac your seed shall be called.

 

Genesis 22:15-18

 

15 Then the Angel of the Lord called to Abraham a second time out of heaven, 16 and said: “By Myself I have sworn, says the Lord, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son17 blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies. 18 In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.”

 

AND THAT JUST TO ABRAHAM! God Almighty continued the Promise of Land and blessings before possession through Abraham’s son Isaac and grandson Jacob (renamed Israel) – Genesis 26:3-5; 27:26-29; 28:13-14; 35:11-12 NKJV.

 

There are more Scriptures related to the Land of Promise via Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to their descendants which are the Jews. Frankly do not look at the lying devilish book known as the Quran – IT IS A COUNTERFEIT manifested to do the design Satan hoped for in the Garden deception of Adam and Eve which messed up all humanity until the RETURN of Jesus the Christ/Messiah to restore all things to God Almighty’s design for His Creation.

 

AND SO, this is the lead up to an email I received from Christians in Defense of Israel. The email’s focus is garner support for Israel to declare sovereignty over Judea and Samaria (the land the rest of the world has been brainwashed to call the West Bank) AND plea for President Trump to recognize such sovereignty. Christians in Defense of Israel  lobbying President Trump with a petition linked in the email. I SIGNED IT!

 

In full disclosure, the petition appears to have the second purpose as a fund raiser for Christians in Defense of Israel. It is a worthy organization to support, but I personally am not in a financial position to donate thus I just signed the petition and moved on. HOWEVER, if you are in a financial position to give I urge you to do so.

 

I am cross posting the email and the wording of the petition, but you will have to actually click the petition link to sign and/or donate.

God promised Abraham the “West Bank”?

This will surprise you. It startled me when I first learned it. And it bears directly on prospects for peace in the Middle East. It’s why I’m urging good friends of Israel like you, John, to join me in sending a historic petition to President Trump. Join me in calling on him to recognize “Israeli Sovereignty in Judea and Samaria!”

YES TO ISRAELI SOVEREIGNTY NOW!

 

And please stand with CIDI now. Help us fight for Israel with your special gift today. Thank you! –Mat

 

John,

You and I both know that the so-called “West Bank”—better known as Judea and Samaria—is the disputed territory which Palestinians fiercely claim for their “state of Palestine.”

But it’s also land—as I explain below—which God specifically promised to Abraham and his descendants some 4,000 years ago.

And that promise is still in force.

Which is why I’m asking you—as a good friend of Israel and CIDI—to stand with me in urging President Trump to do what, just a decade ago, would have been unthinkable.

The president has already recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. He recognized Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights. Now it’s time to take the next step.

 

Will you please join me in calling on President Trump to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the West Bank—Judea and Samaria, the Jewish people’s biblical heartland?

With the White House peace place set for release after Israel votes September 17, now is the time to urge President Trump to take this historic step.

Join me today in issuing this historic call by signing our critical, time-sensitive “Israeli Sovereignty in Judea and Samaria!” petition to the President.

YES TO ISRAELI SOVEREIGNTY NOW!

 

+ + Abraham was in the “West Bank” when God promised him the land!

It’s well known that God promised “all the land of Canaan” to Abraham and his descendants. But what’s not widely known is where Abraham was when God made that promise.

The surprising fact is that Abraham was living in the so-called West Bank when God twice promised him and his descendants the land of Israel!

On one occasion, Abraham was in ancient Shechem, now known as Nablus—a Palestinian city in the northern West Bank—when God appeared to him and said, “To your offspring I will give this land” (Genesis 12:7).

Later, when Abraham settled at Hebron, an ancient city in the southern West Bank, God gave Abraham another land promise: “I will give to you and to your offspring after you . . . all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession” (Genesis 17:8).

And yet the world denounces Israel for “occupying” the West Bank—better known as Judea and Samaria!

 

  • Israel-hating congresswoman Ilhan Omar attacks Israel for the “cruel reality of the occupation.” She bashes the Jewish state for its “brutal occupation.”
  • UN Security Council resolution 2334—President Obama’s parting shot at Israel—labels Jewish neighborhoods in Judea and Samaria (the West Bank) “a flagrant violation under international law and a major obstacle” to peace.

 

But how can you “occupy” what is, in fact, yours?

+ + Truth is the one foundation for true peace

The truth is that this land—the West Bank—belongs to Israel as a matter of history, international law and most importantly, divine promise. And truth is the one foundation on which to build lasting peace in the Middle East.

That’s why I’m asking you to join me in calling on President Trump to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the West Bank.

 

Making that recognition would be a huge and historic step. But the president needs to hear from you and me right away because the White House peace plan is coming out soon—possibly in October once Israeli elections are over and a new government is formed.

Please sign the Israeli Sovereignty in Judea and Samaria! petition now!

 

+ + Two special “Thank You” gifts you’ll love

And once you’ve signed the petition, I’d love to send two special gifts in thanks for your support: my small book, Why the Two-State Solution Won’t Work . . . But What Could, and an attractive “Stand with Israel” sticker for your home or car. Both, together, are my “Thank You” when you send a gift of $25 or more today.

Your much-needed gift will make a real difference.

When you give, you help us fight for Israel on Capitol Hill, across America, and in the Holy Land. Because of friends like you, CIDI works every day to bless and defend Israel. But without your help, that just won’t happen.

Please let me hear from you right away!

Together for Israel,

 

Mat Staver
Chairman

Tell President Trump to Recognize Israel’s God-Given, Legal Right to Its Land [PETITION]

 

In just weeks—possibly October—President Donald Trump will release his long-awaited peace plan. And there’s one element absolutely crucial to its success: a recognition of Israel’s historic, lawful and legitimate claim to its biblical heartland, Judea and Samaria—a.k.a. the West Bank.

 

That’s why we’re calling on friends of Israel like you to sign the Israeli Sovereignty in Judea and Samaria! petition now.

 

But time is short. The peace plan will come out soon and we must rush these petitions to the White House right away! Act now by signing the petition below. And thank you in advance for your generous gift. Your partnership is appreciated!

 

Stand with Israel and sign the Israeli Sovereignty in Judea and Samaria! petition right away!

 

Israeli Sovereignty in Judea and Samaria!

A Petition to President Donald Trump

 

Dear President Trump,

 

Thank you for your strong pro-Israel leadership. Your recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and your bold decision to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights are historic achievements that corrected long-standing mistakes by past administrations. But now it’s time to take the next step.

 

The misnamed “West Bank” is, in fact, historic Judea and Samaria—Israel’s biblical heartland. This is land God promised to the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. It is territory to which the Jewish people have a legitimate, lawful and sovereign claim under the agreement reached by the Great Powers after World War I. That’s why it’s now time to recognize the Jewish state’s sovereign right over Judea and Samaria—a.k.a. the West Bank.

 

Because truth is the only foundation for peace, your declaration acknowledging Israeli sovereignty over the West Bank must be part of your forthcoming Israeli/Palestinian Peace Plan. As a friend of Israel and an American citizen, I strongly urge you to, once more, lead with boldness and recognize Jewish sovereignty on Jewish land—the territory of Judea and Samaria.

 

Will you sign?
