The Israeli Knesset is considering a law that would make Israel
sovereign over Judea and Samaria which has been the Jewish heartland
since Biblical times, a piece of real estate that Israel liberated from
Jordanian occupation during the Six Day War in 1967. The Jewish state
has formally declared sovereignty over the eastern section of the city
of Jerusalem which includes the Old City and the Temple Mount and the
Golan Heights but Judea and Samaria continue to be administered by
Israeli military governors.
Israeli officials believe
that declaring sovereignty over the Jewish heartland of Judea and
Samaria actually creates a historic opportunity for Israel to make
right a protracted wrong.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
though the Israeli government might declare sovereignty over the
Jewish heartland of Judea and Samaria in this day, the Lord gave the
Jews that piece of real estate many centuries ago and had promised them
this land forever according to Bible prophecy.
1967 Six Day War the Israeli Defense Force liberated the piece of real
estate referred to as the West Bank from the Jordanians and this land,
known in Biblical terms as Judea and Samaria, became a part of the
Jewish state. However, the area of Judea and Samaria did not come
under the sovereignty of the state of Israel but has been administered
over these many many years by military governors. Now the Israeli
government wants to implement sovereignty over the Biblical heartland
of the Jewish people. In essence, that has already happened because
God made a promise to the Jewish people and told them they would have
this land forever.
Ezekiel 36 speaks much about the
land of the Jewish people. In fact 35 times the prophet refers to the
land, a land that will belong to the Jews for one reason: He promised
this land to them and Ezekiel 36:22 says that the Lord must keep that
promise for His holy namesake. The Land Covenant, a promise between
the Lord and the Jews found in Deuteronomy 30, this Land Covenant must
be fulfilled or God is not God. Ezekiel 35 reveals the prophecy of the
Palestinian people, descendants of Esau, these Palestinians who will
come and kill the Jews and take their land, that's the land of Judea
The Israeli government's sovereignty
over Judea and Samaria is an absolute not because of human government,
but because of Bible prophecy - Bible prophecy that will be fulfilled.
