Religious Jews around the world claim their Biblical rights to the land of Israel

Every religious Orthodox Jew reads through the Torah, the first five books of the Old Testament (O.T.), once a year and during that reading they read Genesis 23 which is the Biblical basis for Jewish claims to the land that God promised the Jewish people, especially the city of Hebron in Israel, a city in the Palestinian areas today.

Claiming that Abraham, father of the Jewish people, made the first Hebrew land purchase, religious Jews quote from Genesis 23 which is a record of Abraham's purchase of the Machpelah Cave, the burial site for the Jewish patriarchs, a purchase that was made for its full price. Israel's Supreme court has questioned the right of Jews to live in Hebron, the oldest Jewish community in the world, and for the Jews to own land in Hebron.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Four thousand years ago, Abraham, father of the Jewish people, started a trend that has come down through the millennia and has an interesting prophetic significance for the End Times.

During the first of November, religious Jews around the world in their daily reading of the Torah, first five books of the O.T., they read Genesis 23, which is the Biblical account of Jewish father Abraham making the first Hebrew purchase of land in Israel and he paid cash money, in fact the full price for the Machpelah Cave in Hebron, a burial site for his wife Sarah, Genesis 23. The Jewish community living today in Hebron is in a fight with Israel's supreme court as to whether they have a right to purchase land in Hebron and live their today. There was another land purchase

There was another land purchase made by a Jewish leader, King David, when he paid cash money for Ornon's Threshing floor, which is the location of the Holy of Holies on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, I Chronicles 21:18-30. King David's purchase of the threshing floor on Mount Moriah set the stage for all Jewish temples to stand on that site. These two land purchases by Abraham and King David of the two holiest sites in Judaism are a part of the fabric of all the land that God promised the Jewish people in the Abrahamic Covenant, land that they will receive when the Messiah, Jesus Christ comes back.

The total amount of the promised land to the Jews is ten times what they own today. The stage is set in the land of the Bible for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
