Genesis 15:17-18:

When the sun had set and darkness had fallen, a smoking firepot with a blazing torch appeared and passed between the pieces (of the sacrifice). On that day the Lord made a covenant with Abram and said, To your descendants I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates… Genesis 12:3:

I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse… Genesis 17:7-8:

I am establishing my covenant between Me and you, along with your descendants after you, generation after generation, as an everlasting covenant, to be God for you and for your descendants after you. I will give you and your descendants after you the land in which you are now foreigners, all the land of Canaan, as a permanent possession; and I will be their God. Genesis 26:3-4:

Stay in this land, and I will be with you and bless you, because I will give all these lands to you and to your descendants. I will fulfill the oath which I swore to Abraham your father – I will make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky, I will give all these lands to your descendants, and by your descendants all the nations of the earth will bless themselves. (Reconfirming the promises to Isaac) Genesis 35:11-12:

And God said to him, I am God Almighty (El Shaddai); be fruitful and increase in number. A nation and a community of nations will come from you, and kings will come from your body. The land I gave to Abraham and Isaac I also give to you, and I will give this land to your descendants after you. (Confirming the promise through Jacob) Exodus 32:13:

(Moses pleading with the Lord for Israel) Remember Abraham, Isaac and Israel, Your servants, to whom You swore by Your very self. You promised them, I will make your descendants as many as the stars in the sky; and I will give all this land I have spoken about to your descendants; and they will possess it forever. Leviticus 26:44-45:

…I will not reject them when they are in the lands of their enemies, nor will I loathe them to the point of utterly destroying them and thus break My covenant with them, because I am the Adonai their God. Rather, for their sakes, I will remember the covenant of their ancestors whom I brought out of the land of Egypt – with the nations watching – so that I might be their God; I am Adonai. Deuteronomy 32:8-9:

When the Most High gave each nation its heritage, when He divided the human race, He assigned the boundaries of peoples according to Israel’s population; but Adonai’s share was His own people, Jacob His allotted heritage. Isaiah 14:1:

For Adonai will have compassion on Jacob – He will once again choose Israel and resettle them in their own land, where foreigners will join them, attaching themselves to the house of Jacob. Isaiah 27:6:

The time is coming when Jacob will take root; Israel will bud and flower, and fill the whole world with a harvest. Isaiah 30:19:

People in Zion, who live in Jerusalem, you will weep no more. At the sound of your cry, He will show you His grace; on hearing it, He will answer you. Isaiah 41:17-20:

…I, Adonai, will answer them. I, the God of Israel, will not leave them. I will open up rivers on the barren hills and wells down in the broad valleys. I will turn the desert into a lake and dry ground into springs. I will plant the desert with cedars, I will plant the desert with cedars, acacias, myrtles and olive trees; In the Aravah I will put cypresses together with elm trees and larches. Then the people will see and know, together observe and understand that the hand of Adonai has done this, that the Holy One of Israel created it. Isaiah 44:1-3:

Now listen, Jacob My servant, Israel whom I have chosen: Thus says Adonai, who made you, formed you in the womb, and will help you: Don’t be afraid, Jacob My servant, Jeshurun, whom I have chosen. For I will pour water on the thirsty land and streams on the dry ground; I will pour My Spirit on your descendants, My blessing on your offspring. Isaiah 49:14-16:

But Zion says, Adonai has abandoned me, Adonai has forgotten me. Can a woman forget her child at her breast, not show pity on the child from her womb? Even if these were to forget, I would not forget you. I have engraved you on the palms of My hands, your walls are always before Me. Isaiah 54:8-10:

I was angry for a moment and hid My face from you; but with everlasting grace I will have compassion on you, says Adonai your Redeemer. …so now I swear that never again will I be angry with you or rebuke you. For the mountains may leave and the hills be removed, but My grace will never leave you, and My covenant of peace will not be removed, says Adonai, who has compassion on you. Isaiah 43:1-7:

But now this is what Adonai says, He who created you, Jacob, He who formed you, Israel: Don’t be afraid, for I have redeemed you; I am calling you by your name; you are Mine.

When you pass through water, I will be with you; when you pass through rivers, they will not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire, you will not be scorched – the flame will not burn you.

For I am Adonai, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior – I have given Egypt as your ransom, Ethiopia and S’va for you. Because I regard you as valued and honored, and because I love you. For you I will give people, nations in exchange for your life.

Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. I will bring your descendants from the east, and I will gather you from the west; I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’ and to the south, ‘Don’t hold them back! Bring My sons from far away, and My daughters from the ends of the earth – everyone who bears My name, whom I created for My glory – I formed him, yes, I made him.’

Isaiah 61:3:

…Provide for those in Zion who mourn, giving them garlands instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, a cloak of praise instead of a heavy spirit, so that they will be called oaks of righteousness planted by Adonai, for the display of His splendor. Isaiah 62:6-7:

I have posted watchmen on your walls, Jerusalem; they will never fall silent, neither by day nor by night. You who call on Adonai, give yourselves no rest; and give Him no rest till He restores Jerusalem and makes it a praise on earth. Jeremiah 29:11-14:

For I know what plans I have in mind for you, says Adonai, plans for well-being, not for bad things; so that you can have hope and a future. When you call to Me and pray to Me, I will listen to you. When you seek Me, you will find Me, provided you seek for Me whole-heartedly; and I will let you find Me, says Adonai. Then I will reverse your exile, I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have driven you, says Adonai, and bring you back to the place from which I exiled you. Jeremiah 30:10-11:

So don’t be afraid, Jacob My servant, says Adonai, or be alarmed, Israel; for I will return you from far away and your offspring from their country of exile. Jacob will again be quiet, at rest; and no one will make him afraid. For I am with you to save you, says Adonai, I will finish off all the nations where I have scattered you… Jeremiah 3:16-18:

And, says Adonai, in those days, when your numbers have increased in the land, people will no longer talk about the ark for the covenant of Adonai – they won’t think about it, they won’t miss it, and they won’t make another one. When that time comes, they will call Jerusalem the throne of Adonai. All the nations will be gathered there to the name of Adonai, to Jerusalem. No longer will they live according to their stubbornly evil hearts. In those days, the house of Judah will live together with the house of Israel; they will come together from the lands in the north to the land I gave your ancestors as their heritage. Jeremiah 30:1-3:

This word came to Jeremiah from Adonai: This is what Adonai the God of Israel says: Write all the words I have spoken to you in a scroll. For the day is coming, says Adonai, when I will reverse the exile of My people Israel and Judah, says Adonai. I will cause them to return to the land I gave their ancestors, and they will take possession of it. Jeremiah 31:20:

Come back, virgin Israel, come back to these cities of yours! Jeremiah 31:31-33:

Here, the days are coming, says Adonai, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah. It will not be like the covenant I made with their fathers on the day I took them by their hand and brought them out of the land of Egypt; because they, for their part, violated My covenant, even though I, for My part, was a husband to them, says Adonai. For this is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says Adonai; I will put My Torah within them and write it on their hearts; I will be their God, and they will be My people. Jeremiah 33:7-9:

I will cause the captives of Judah and the captives of Israel to return; and I will build them up as I did at first. I will cleanse them from all their sins, through which they offended Me; and I will pardon all their sins, through which they offended Me and rebelled against Me. Then the name of this city will bring Me joy, praise and glory before all the nations of the earth that hear about all the good I am doing for them; they will be overcome with fear and trembling at all the good and peace I am securing for it. Isaiah 60:

1: Arise, shine (Jerusalem), for your light has come, the glory of Adonai has risen over you.

2: For although darkness covers the earth and thick darkness the peoples; on you Adonai will rise; over you will be seen His glory.

3: Nations will go toward your light and kings toward your shining splendor.

4: Raise your eyes and look around: they are all assembling and coming to you; your sons are coming from far off, your daughters being carried on their nurses’ hips.

5: Then you will see and be radiant, your heart will throb and swell with delight; for the riches of the seas will be brought to you, the wealth of nations will come to you.

10: Foreigners will rebuild your walls, their kings will be at your service; for in My anger I struck you, but in My mercy I pity you.

11: Your gates will always be open, they will not be shut by day or by night, so that people can bring you the wealth of the nations, with their kings led in procession.

12: For the nation or kingdom that won’t serve you will perish; yes, those nations will be utterly destroyed.

14: The children of your oppressors will come and bow low before you, all that despised you will fall at your feet, calling you the city of Adonai, Zion of the Holy One of Israel.

15: …now I will make you the pride of the ages, a joy for many generations.

16: You will drink the milk of nations, you will nurse at royal breasts and know that I, Adonai, am your Savior, that I am the Mighty One of Jacob.

17: …I will make (shalom) your governor and righteousness your taskmaster.

18: Violence will no longer be heard in your land, desolation or destruction within your borders; instead, you will call your walls Salvation and your gates Praise.

Ezekiel 36:35-36:

Then they will say, The land that used to be desolate has become like the Garden of Eden, and the cities formerly ruined, abandoned and wasted have been fortified and are inhabited! Then the nations around you that remain will know that I, Adonai, have rebuilt the ruins and replanted what was abandoned. I, Adonai, have spoken; and I will do it. Psalm 102:13-16:

You will arise and take pity on Zion, for the time has come to have mercy on her; the time determined has come. For Your servants love her very stones; they take pity even on her dust. The nations will fear the name of Adonai and all the kings on earth Your glory, when Adonai has rebuilt Zion, and shows Himself in His glory. Psalm 121:4:

The guardian of Israel never slumbers or sleeps. Joel 2:12-13:

Yet even now, says Adonai, turn to Me with all your heart, with fasting, weeping and lamenting. Tear your heart, not your garments; and turn to Adonai your God. For He is merciful and compassionate, slow to anger, rich in grace, and willing to change His mind about disaster. Amos 9:14-15:

I will restore the fortunes of My people Israel; they will rebuild and inhabit the ruined cities; they will plant vineyards and drink their wine, cultivate gardens and eat their fruit. I will plant them on their own soil, no more to be uprooted from their land, which I gave them, says Adonai your God. Zechariah 2:1-13:

Then I looked up and saw four horns. I asked the angel who was speaking to me, What are these? He answered, These are the horns that scattered Judah, Israel and Jerusalem.

Next, Adonai showed me four artisans. I asked, What are these coming to do? He said, Those horns that scattered Judah so completely that no one could even raise his head – well, these men have come to terrify them, to overthrow the nations that raised their horns against the land of Judah to scatter it.

I looked up and saw a man with a measuring line in his hand. I asked, Where are you going? He said to me, To measure Jerusalem, to determine its width and length.

Here the angel who was speaking to me went forward, and another angel went out, met him and said to him, Run and tell this young man, Jerusalem will be inhabited without walls, because there will be so many people and animals, says Adonai, I will be for her a wall of fire surrounding her; and I will be a glory within her. Up! says Adonai, Move! Flee the land of the north! For I scattered you like the four winds of the sky, says Adonai. Move, Zion! You who are living with the daughter of Bavel, escape! For the Lord of Hosts has sent me on a glorious mission to the nations that plundered you, and this is what he says:

Anyone who injures you injures the very pupil of My eye. But I will shake My hand over them, and they will be plundered by those who were formerly their slaves. Then you will know that Adonai the Lord of Hosts sent Me.

Sing, daughter of Zion, rejoice! For, here, I am coming; and I will live among you, says Adonai. When that time comes, many nations will join themselves to Adonai. They will be My people, and I will live among you. Then you will know that it was Adonai the Lord of Hosts who sent Me to you.

Adonai will take possession of Judah as His portion in the holy land, and He will again make Jerusalem His choice. Be silent, all humanity, before Adonai, for He has been roused from His holy dwelling.

Zechariah 14:16-17:

Finally, everyone remaining from all the nations that came to attack Jerusalem will go up every year to worship the king, Adonai the Lord of Hosts, and to keep the festival of Sukkot (Tabernacles). If any of the families of the earth does not go up to Jerusalem to worship the king, Adonai the Lord of Hosts, no rain will fall on them.

The PLO was instituted in 1964 three years before the six day war in June 1967 when Israel, in a war of self-defense, recovered the so-called “West Bank”, now seen and proclaimed by nearly everybody as the quintessence crux of the Middle East problem.
This however shows that the PLO (All Palestine needs to be liberated) was not formed to erect a Palestinian state on the ‘so called’ West Bank but was instituted to replace all of Israel with a Muslim Palestinian State.

A Word From Zion

The New Testament Basis for the Restoration of Israel

Jesus was asked by His disciples whether He would restore the kingdom to Israel at that time, to which He replied:
Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority.
