In regards to the land that God has promised Israel, Genesis 15:18 declares, "To your descendants [Abraham's] I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates." God later confirms this promise to Abraham's son Isaac, and Isaac's son Jacob (whose name was later changed to Israel). When the Israelites were about to invade the Promised Land, God reiterated the land promise, as recorded in Joshua 1:4, "Your territory will extend from the desert to Lebanon, and from the great river, the Euphrates — all the Hittite country — to the Great Sea on the west."

With Genesis 15:18 and Joshua 1:4 in mind, the land God gave to Israel included everything from the Nile river in Egypt to Lebanon (North to South) and everything from the Mediterranean Sea to the Euphrates River (West to East). So, what land has God stated belongs to Israel? All of the land modern Israel currently possesses, plus all of the land of the Palestinians (the West Bank and Gaza), plus some of Egypt and Syria, plus all of Jordan, plus some of Saudi Arabia and Iraq. Israel currently possesses only a fraction of the land God has promised.

    It was also prophecied that Israel would once again become a state and a massive movement of Jews back to the promise land. This prophecy is miraculously coming true as never seen before in human history. God's promises are true and He is faithful because He cannnot deny Himself and His character.

    Galatians 6:7 (New King James Version)

    7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.

    Psalm 14:1 (New King James Version)

    1 The fool has said in his heart,
    “There is no God.”
    They are corrupt,
    They have done abominable works,
    There is none who does good.

    God fools everyone who thinks they know what his plan is. It's all throughout the bible. Still we have many arrogant people who claim to know what he's going to do. God laughs at our arrogance.

    For those of us who are born again we know whats going on for the Lord reveals these things to those who are walking and living according to his Will and Purpose. God declares Obedience over Sacrifice.

    Since James down there blocked me immediately after leaving me a comment ,I'll just answer him here.... If everyone knows what's going on ,why do we all disagree on what the truth is? Arrogance?

    We know what truth is. It is you who is arrogant. There is not one born again believer that doesn't know that God gave the land to the Jews. Then He scattered them to other countries and now in the last days He's brings them back. Read your bible it's all in there. It's been foretold 1,000's of years ago what would happen and now it's coming to past.
