7 Outline I. Israel’s Origin I. Israel’s Origin Gen. 12:1-3: “Now the Lord said to Abram, ‘Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and him who curses you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.’”

8 I. Israel’s Origin II.Israel’s Purpose “In you all the families of the earth shall be blessed” by-- A. The Savior (the Living Word) Mat. 1:1—“The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.” Mat. 1:1—“The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.” Gal. 3:8 : “And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, ‘All the nations shall be blessed in you.’” Gal. 3:8 : “And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, ‘All the nations shall be blessed in you.’”

9 The Messianic Line The Seed of the Woman (Gen. 3:15) The Line of Seth (Gen. 4:25) The Descendant of Shem (Gen. 9:26) The Offspring of Abraham (Gen. 12:1-3) The Seed of Isaac (Gen. 21:12) The Lineage of Jacob (Gen. 46:3) The Tribe of Judah (Gen. 49:10) The Son of David (2 Sam. 7:12f; Jer. 23:5-6)

10 I. Israel’s Origin II.Israel’s Purpose “In you all the families of the earth shall be blessed” by-- A. The Savior (the Living Word) Mat. 1:1—“The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.” Mat. 1:1—“The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.” B. The Scriptures (the Written Word) Rom. 3:2—“To begin with, the Jews were entrusted with the oracles of God.” Rom. 3:2—“To begin with, the Jews were entrusted with the oracles of God.”

11 The Savior and the Scripture Living Word Written Word Body Book Incarnation Inscripturation Redemption Inspiration

12 The Savior and the Scripture John 5:39—“You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that speak of me (the Savior).” Heb. 10:5-7—“When Christ came into the world, he said…a body you have prepared for me…, as it is written of me in the scroll of the book.”

13 Note: 1. Israel was to be a conveyer, not merely a container, of God’s blessing. 2. They were a blessed nation so that they could be a blessing to all nations.

14 Outline I. Israel’s Origin II. Israel’s Purpose III.Israel’s Promises A. The Land (kingdom) B. The Throne (King)

15 Note: 1) God needed to bring the holy people into the Holy Land to bring forth the Holy Scriptures (Torah) to guide them and the Holy One (Messiah) to save them. 2) God needed a chosen Land for His chosen nation to bring in His Chosen One through whom He could save His chosen ones from all nations.

16 Outline A. The Land (for a kingdom) 1. God gave it to Abraham and his offspring, Isaac, Jacob, and to their descendants forever: 1. God gave it to Abraham and his offspring, Isaac, Jacob, and to their descendants forever: Gen. 12:1:“Now the LORD had said to Abram: ‘Get out of your country, from your kindred and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you.’” Gen. 13:15: “For all the land which you see I give to you and your descendants forever.”

17 Gen. 15:18: “The Lord made a covenant with Abram saying: ‘To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the River Euphrates….’” Gen. 17:8: God said to Abraham: “I give to you the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession.” Josh. 1:3-4: “I have given to you [this land], just as I promised Moses. From the wilderness and this Lebanon as far as the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites to the Great Sea toward the going down of the sun shall be your territory.”

18 God Gave it through Isaac, not Ishmael Abraham Isaac Ishmael Jews Arabs Abraham Isaac Ishmael Jews Arabs

19 2. God Gave it through Isaac, not Ishmael Gen. 17:18-19: “And Abraham said to God,’ Oh that Ishmael might live before you!’ God said ‘No, but Sarah your wife shall bear a son, and you shall calls his name Isaac. I will establish my covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his offspring after him.” Gen. 21:12: “But God said to Abraham…‘In Isaac your seed shall be called.’” Gen. 26:3: God said to Isaac: “I will be with you; for to you and your descendants I give all these lands, and I will perform the oath which I swore to Abraham your father.”

22 3. God gave it unconditionally (Rom. 11:29). “The gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.” “The gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.” 1. God’s promise did not depend on Israel’s faith but on God’s faithfulness (2 Tim. 2:13). “If we are faithless, He remains faithful, for He cannot deny Himself.” “If we are faithless, He remains faithful, for He cannot deny Himself.” 2. God’s promise was immutable (Heb. 6:13-18). 2. God’s promise was immutable (Heb. 6:13-18). “When God made a promise to Abraham, because He could swear by no one greater, He wore by Himself…. Thus God, determining to show more abundantly to the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, confirmed it by an oath, that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might have strong consolation….” “When God made a promise to Abraham, because He could swear by no one greater, He wore by Himself…. Thus God, determining to show more abundantly to the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, confirmed it by an oath, that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might have strong consolation….”

23 Gen. 15:9-18: “Bring Me a three-year old heifer, a three year old female goat, a three year old ram…and cut them in two…. Now when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram…. And it came to pass when the sun went down and it was dark, that behold, there was a smoking oven and burning torch that passed between those pieces. On the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, ‘to your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the River Euphrates….’”

24 Psa. 89:28-37: “My mercy I will keep for him forever, and his throne as the days of heaven. If his sons forsake My law and do not walk in My judgments…, then I will visit their transgressions with the rod…. Nevertheless My lovingkindness I will not utterly take from him nor allow My faithfulness to fail. My covenant I will not break nor alter the word that has gone out of my lips…. It shall be established forever like the moon.”

25 4. God gave it unto perpetuity (“forever”). Gen. 13:15: “For all the land which you see I give to you and your descendants forever.” Gen. 17:8: God said to Abraham: “I give to you... the land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession.” Psa. 89:28, 29: “My mercy I will keep for him forever, and his throne as the days of heaven.... My covenant I will not break nor alter the word that has gone out of my lips…. It shall be established forever like the moon.”

26 God’s land promise is still future a. Josh 21:43 was not the final fulfillment: “ Thus the Lord gave to Israel all the land that he had sworn to give to their fathers. And they took possession of it, and lived in it.” 1. It was not the whole land promised (It did not cover Syria—cf. Num. 34). 1. It was not the whole land promised (It did not cover Syria—cf. Num. 34). 2. It did not last “forever” (Israel was exiled to Assyria in 721 BC. and Babylon in 605 B.C.). 2. It did not last “forever” (Israel was exiled to Assyria in 721 BC. and Babylon in 605 B.C.). b. Later prophets pointed to it as yet future. Amos 9:14-15: “Also I will restore the captivity of My people Israel, And they will rebuild the ruined cities and live in them; They will also plant vineyards and drink their wine, And make gardens and eat their fruit. I will also plant them on their land, And they will not again be rooted out from their land Which I have given them, says the Lord.” c. NT predicts it in the future.

27 Mat. 19:28--Jesus said to them, “Truly, I say to you, in the new world, when the Son of Man will sit on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. Acts 1:6-8--So when they had come together, they asked him, “Lord, will you at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed by his own authority.”

28 Acts 3:19-21—“Repent therefore, and turn back, …that he may send the Christ appointed for you, Jesus, whom heaven must receive until the time for restoring all the things about which God spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets long ago.” Acts 15:13-17—“James replied, Simeon has related how God first visited the Gentiles, to take from them a people for his name….‘After this I will return, and I will rebuild the tent of David that has fallen; I will rebuild its ruins, and I will restore it, that the remnant of mankind may seek the Lord, and all the Gentiles who are called by my name, says the Lord, who makes these things known from of old.’”

29 Rom. 11: And even they…will be grafted in, for God has the power to graft them in again. For if you were cut from what is by nature a wild olive tree, and grafted, contrary to nature, into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these, the natural branches, be grafted back into their own olive tree…. A partial hardening has come upon Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And in this way all Israel will be saved….”

30 Note: 1. Israel was given all the Land (currently Palestinian, Israel, Lebanon, and Syria). 2. They were given this Land forever. 3. They were given the Land unconditionally. 4. This promise has not yet been fulfilled. 5. It will be fulfilled when the Messiah returns.

I will raise up your offspring after you, who shall come from your body, and I will establish his kingdom. He shall build a house for my name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever…. My steadfast love will not depart from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away from before you. And your house and your kingdom shall be made sure forever before me. Your throne shall be established forever.’ ” 2 Sam. 7:5-16: “Go and tell my servant David, ‘thus says the Lord, I will appoint a place for my people Israel and will plant them, so that they may dwell in their own place and be disturbed no more. …Moreover, the Lord declares to you that the Lord will make you a house….

My steadfast love will not depart from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away from before you. And your house and your kingdom shall be made sure forever before me. Your throne shall be established forever.’ ”

And your house and your kingdom shall be made sure forever before me. Your throne shall be established forever…. You have spoken of your servant’s house for a great while to come, and this is instruction for mankind’ ” 2 Sam. 7:5-20: “Go and tell my servant David, ‘Thus says the Lord, I will appoint a place for my people Israel and will plant them, so that they may dwell in their own place and be disturbed no more. ….

38 Jeremiah 33:15–17 : “In those days and at that time I will cause a righteous Branch to spring up for David, and he shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. In those days Judah will be saved, and Jerusalem will dwell securely. And this is the name by which it will be called: ‘The L ORD is our righteousness.’ For thus says the L ORD : ‘David shall never lack a man to sit on the throne of the house of Israel…’”

Like the moon it shall be established forever, a faithful witness in the skies.” or alter the word that went forth from my lips. Once for all I have sworn by my holiness; I will not lie to David. His offspring shall endure forever, his throne as long as the sun before me. Like the moon it shall be established forever, a faithful witness in the skies.”
