Obama Direct Talks to 'End the Occupation'

On Wednesday, President Barack Obama said, "The goal is a settlement negotiated between the parties, that ends the occupation which began in 1967 and results in the emergence of an independent, democratic and viable Palestinian state living side by side in peace and security with a Jewish state of Israel and its other neighbors. That’s the vision we are pursuing."

Obama wants to end the occupation that began in 1967. As I read in my Bible, this land was given to the Jews as an eternal homeland. As nations try to divide this land, remember what God says in Deuteronomy 32:8-9:

When the Most High divided their inheritance to the nations, When He separated the sons of Adam, He set the boundaries of the peoples according to the number of the children of Israel. For the Lord's portion is His people; Jacob is the place of His inheritance.

According to this passage, it is the nations' borders that are based on Israel, and not vice versa. From a Biblical perspective, altering Israel's borders is an expression of rebellion against God who established the borders of Israel.

  1. As I read the Bible, it was God, himself, who overthrew the land. The promise of the land to Abraham's offspring when God walked through the sacrifices with Abraham contains no language that is eternal or perpetual. The promise that contains the language that is perpetual is the one that mentions creating from Abraham a nation of nations — i.e., a nation of people made up of people from many nations. That promise was for the establishment of the Kingdom of Christ, whom the Apostle Paul argues is the sole seed of Abraham through whom God intended to deliver this promise. A careful reading of scripture shows it is not the promise of land to Abraham's circumcised offspring that was eternal, but the establishment of the Kingdom of Christ through Abraham's offspring that is eternal.

    The occupied territories have not belonged to Jews since Israel was first overthrown by Babylon. Ever since that time, that land has remained under the control of foreign powers. And God has not delivered that land into any kind of Jewish sovereignty even yet. While Israel occupied the land in 1967, it has been unable to gain any kind of sovereign control over the land to this very day. So, that land has been outside of Jewish sovereignty since God promised its overthrow by Babylon to this very day.
