Israel was in a covenant relationship with God. In fact, God often defines Himself as “The God of Israel.” Despite the attempts of political associations today, possession of the land was an inviolable (unbreakable) part of that covenant.
1 Chronicles 16: 14-19
He is the Lord our God; His judgments are in all the earth.
Remember 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 for an everlasting covenant,
Saying, “To you I will give the land of Canaan as the allotment of your inheritance, when you were few in number, indeed very few, and strangers in it.”
PRAY THAT ISRAEL WOULD VALUE THE COVENANT AND NOT DESPISE THEIR INHERITANCE.
