The covenant God made with the Patriarchs was unconditional. God’s promise depended only on His faithfulness and not on Israel’s.
Since 135 AD when the Jews were expelled from the land, various nations have tried to possess the land which He has given to His covenant people to steward.
He remembers his covenant forever,
the promise he made, for a thousand generations,
the covenant he made with Abraham,
the oath he swore to Isaac.
He confirmed it to Jacob as a decree,
to Israel as an everlasting covenant:
“To you I will give the land of Canaan
as the portion you will inherit.”
RENOUNCE THE LIE:
[Israel’s right to the land is] not based on divine privilege. Why? A non-covenant-keeping people does not have a divine right to hold the land of promise. Both the blessed status of the people and the privileged right to the land are conditional on Israel’s keeping the covenant God made with her. (John MacArthur)
REPLACE WITH THE TRUTH
Israel’s divine privilege ownership was made in an unconditional covenant between God and the Patriarchs.
