The Bible dictates where Jews have a right to live today in the land of Israel

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: I want to find out what your thoughts are about what the Prime Minister said when he was visiting one of those communities, a Jewish settlement and talking to the children. He said, that we’re going to give Jewish sovereignty to all of this area Judea and Samaria and all the I think over 200-250 different communities or Jewish settlements out there. Is it a promise that the Prime Minister can keep?

WM: Well Jimmy with all the respect and honor and faith that you and I and I think most of our listeners place in the Bible I just want to make a small correction before I get into your specific question and my specific answer. Jews lived in Judea and Samaria up until 1948. In other words we’re not claiming this land only on the bases, a very good bases of the word of God and Biblical history but the history that continued up until 1948. Up until the 1948 war we even had a kiboots in the Gaza Strip.

So part of the problem I think that sometimes people have when Mr. Netanyahu or other politicians talk about this land belongs to us they try to make fun of the Bible as if it’s ancient history. I want to make sure our listeners know that if it wasn’t for military losses in the 1948 war and Jordan coming into that area we would have no problem talking about Judea and Samaria and Jews living there today. I admit that I’m not quite sure exactly what he means. Does he mean to extend Jewish or Israeli sovereignty over area C or only to the Jewish communities in those areas? But what is important Jimmy is the implication in the statement Israel has a solid, religious, historic and legal claim to extend its sovereignty to areas west of the Jordan River that was part of the mandate that the League of Nations gave the Jews for close settlement on the land.

JD: Winkie Medad reminding us that God’s word the Bible is the final word on where Jews can live in the land of Israel.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

Winkie Medad took us to the Bible for the answer to the question where can Jews live in the Jewish state of Israel; that’s found in Ezekiel chapters 34 & 36. In fact Ezekiel 36 speaks 35 times about the land that God has given the Jewish people today and forever. The Lord says in Ezekiel 36:22 that He makes this decision not even for the Jewish people but for His Holy namesake. This is a Biblical promise that cannot be broken.
