Map of Greater Israel
“I will establish your borders from the Red Sea to the Mediterranean Sea, and from the desert to the Euphrates River.”
“Every place where you set your foot will be yours: Your territory will extend from the desert to Lebanon, and from the Euphrates River to the Mediterranean Sea.”
“Your territory will extend from the desert to Lebanon, and from the great river, the Euphrates—all the Hittite country—to the Mediterranean Sea in the west.”
1 Kings 4:21
“And Solomon ruled over all the kingdoms from the Euphrates River to the land of the Philistines, as far as the border of Egypt. These countries brought tribute and were Solomon’s subjects all his life.”
1 Kings 4:24
“For he ruled over all the kingdoms west of the Euphrates River, from Tiphsah to Gaza, and had peace on all sides.”
2 Chronicles 9:25-27
“Solomon had four thousand stalls for horses and chariots, and twelve thousand horses, which he kept in the chariot cities and also with him in Jerusalem. He ruled over all the kings from the Euphrates River to the land of the Philistines, as far as the border of Egypt. The king made silver as common in Jerusalem as stones, and cedar as plentiful as sycamore-fig trees in the foothills.”
Who will inhabit this great expanse of land?
We conclude the answer for this from the Blessing that HaShem made to Avraham:
Gen. 12:6 “Abram passed through the land to the place at Shechem, to the oak of Moreh. …. 7 Then HaShem appeared to Abram, and said, “To your descendants I will give this land.”
Gen. 15:5 “ And (HaShem) brought (Avraham) outside and said, “Look toward heaven, and number the stars, if you are able to number them.” Then he said to him, “So shall your descendants be.”
Gen. 26:4 “I will multiply your descendants as the stars of heaven, and will give to your descendants all these lands; and by your descendants all the nations of the earth shall bless themselves: 5 because Abraham obeyed my voice and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.”
Gen. 28:14 “And your descendants shall be like the dust of the earth, and you shall spread abroad to the west and to the east and to the north and to the south; and by you and your descendants shall all the families of the earth bless themselves.
Gen. 32:12 “But thou didst say, ‘I will do you good, and make your descendants as the sand ofthe sea, which cannot be numbered for multitude.’”
Gen. 48:4 “(HaShem) said unto me: Behold, ‘I am going to make you fruitful and increase your numbers. I will make you a community of peoples, and I will give this land as an everlasting possession to your descendants after you.’
Gen. 48:19 “… his young brother (Efraim) is greater than he (Menashaeh, the first born), and his seed is the fulness of the nations (Meloh HaGoyim)”.
Hosea 2:1 “Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, Which can not be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass that, instead of that which was said unto them: ‘Ye are not My people’, it shall be said unto them: ‘Ye are the children of the living God.’ 2 And the children of Judah and the children of Israel shall be Gathered together, and They Shall appoint themselves one head, and shall go up out of the land; for great shall be the day of Jezreel.”
Conditional or Unconditional Inheritance?
This Promise, a Divine Blessing, was to Abraham and his descendants – and THIS is where the staggering revealing Truths for our Time come in: a Promise of “Meloh HaGoyim” (Gen. 48:19) – a multitude of nations … countless numbers of descendents, from HIS bloodline, uncountable as the sand of the sea, the dust of the earth (Gen. 13:16). They would be – now hold on firmly – GOYIM – non-Jews by today’s standards of reasoning!!
Judah take note! “The Fullness of the Gentiles (Goyim)”.
Ephraim take note: This Blessing is conditional on Torah observance, as emphasized over and over in Scripture – NOT an unconditional, ‘only believe and receive’ freebie.
Abraham received this Blessing because he conformed:
Genesis 26:4 “I will multiply your descendants as the stars of heaven, and will give to your descendants all these lands; and by your descendants all the nations of the earth shall bless hemselves: 5 because Abraham obeyed my voice and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.”
Will the Gentiles, the Returnees then be allowed to share in the Blessing unconditionally, as a free grant?
