God Has Made an Everlasting Covenant with Abraham
Genesis 17:7-8 “And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and your descendants after you. Also I give to you and your descendants after you the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.”
Psalm 105:8-11 “He remembers His covenant forever, The word which He commanded, for a thousand generations, The covenant which He made with Abraham, And His oath to Isaac, And confirmed it to Jacob for a statute, To Israel as an everlasting covenant, Saying, “To you I will give the land of Canaan
As the allotment of your inheritance.”
God Has Not Rejected nor Forgotten His Jewish People
Jeremiah 33:23-26 (NIV) The word of the LORD came to Jeremiah: “Have you not noticed that these people are saying, ‘The LORD has rejected the two kingdoms he chose’? So they despise my people and no longer regard them as a nation. This is what the LORD says: ‘If I have not established my covenant with day and night and the fixed laws of heaven and earth, then I will reject the descendants of Jacob and David my servant and will not choose one of his sons to rule over the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. For I will restore their fortunes and have compassion on them.’ “
Romans 11:1, 2, 29 (NIV) I ask then: Did God reject his people? By no means!…God did not reject his people, whom he foreknew…for God’s gifts and his call are irrevocable.
What God Scatters, He Re-gathers
Jeremiah 31:10 “Hear the word of the LORD, O nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, “He who scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him as a shepherd does his flock.’ “
God Will Re-gather and Restore His People to the Land of Israel
Isaiah 43:5, 6 Fear not, for I am with you; I will bring your descendants from the east, And gather you from the west; I will say to the north, “Give them up!” And to the south, “Do not keep them back” Bring My sons from afar, And My daughters from the ends of the earth.
Jeremiah 23:3, 7, 8 But I will gather the remnant of My flock out of all countries where I have driven them, and bring them back to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase…Therefore, behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, that they shall no longer say, “As the LORD lives who brought up the children of Israel from the land of Egypt, but, “As the LORD lives who brought up and led the descendants of the house of Israel from the north country and from all the countries where I had driven them.”" And they shall dwell in their own land.
God Will Do This with All His Heart and Soul
Jeremiah 32:37-41 “Behold, I will gather them out of all countries where I have driven them in My anger, in My fury, and in great wrath; I will bring them back to this place, and I will cause them to dwell safely. They shall be My people, and I will be their God; then I will give them one heart and one way, that they may fear Me forever, for the good of them and their children after them. And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from doing them good; but I will put My fear in their hearts so that they will not depart from Me. Yes, I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will assuredly plant them in this land, with all My heart and with all My soul.”
The Gentiles Will Help
Isaiah 49:22 (NIV) This is what the Sovereign LORD says: “See, I will beckon to the Gentiles, I will lift up My banner to the peoples; they will bring your sons in their arms and carry your daughters on their shoulders.”
Praise and Proclamation Will Release Them!
Jeremiah 31:7, 8 For thus says the LORD: “Sing with gladness for Jacob, and shout among the chief of the nations; proclaim, give praise, and say, “O LORD, save your people, the remnant of Israel!’ “Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the ends of the earth, among them the blind and the lame,the woman with child and the one who labors with child, together; a great throng shall return there.”
In the Land, They Will Receive a New Heart
Ezekiel 36:24-28 “For I will take you from among the nations, gather you out of all countries, and bring you into your own land. Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them. Then you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; you shall be My people and I will be your God.”
None Will Be Left Behind
Ezekiel 39:28 (NIV) “Then they will know that I am the LORD their God, for though I sent them into exile among the nations, I will gather them to their own land, not leaving any behind.”
The Messiah Will Come
Jeremiah 23:3, 5, 6 “But I will gather the remnant of My flock out of all countries where I have driven them, and bring them back to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase…Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, that I will raise to David a Branch of Righteousness; a King shall reign and prosper, and execute judgment and righteousness in the earth. In His days Judah will be saved, and Israel will dwell safely; now this is His name by which He will be called: THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.”
