The progression of God’s covenant with Abraham:
Genesis 12:1-3 – God promises to make a great nation of Abraham and his descendents; to bless Abraham; to make his name great; to make him a blessing; to bless those who bless him and curse those who curse him; and to bless the world through Abraham.
Genesis 12:7 – God promises to give the land of Canaan to Abraham’s descendants.
Genesis 13:24-17 – God officially gives the land of Canaan to Abraham and his descendants and promises to make Abraham’s descendants as numerous as the dust of the earth.
Genesis 15:8-18 – God performs a one-sided covenant ritual with Abraham, making the responsibility to keep the covenant solely God’s.
Genesis 17:1-7 – When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am Almighty God; walk before Me and be blameless. 2 And I will make My covenant between Me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly.” 3 Then Abram fell on his face, and God talked with him, saying: 4 “As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of many nations. 5 No longer shall your name be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have made you a father of many nations. 6 I will make you exceedingly fruitful; and I will make nations of you, and kings shall come from you. 7 And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and your descendants after you. 8 Also I give to you and your descendants after you the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.”
Note: GOD made HIS covenant with Abraham and his descendants. It was that HE would be their God, and that they would possess Canaan. AND THE COVENANT WAS ETERNAL. God has NOT, and NEVER will, abandon Israel as His chosen people. If He did, He would be breaking the covenant that He made with Israel, that He accepted sole responsibility in keeping; and He would not be faithful and true. To verify that God planned to keep His covenant with Israel (Abraham’s descendants through Isaac and then Jacob, who’s name God changed to Israel) check out Jeremiah 31:35-37 and Jeremiah 33:23-26 where God says the sun, moon, and stars, day and night, would have to cease to exist before He would cast off Israel from being His people.

Christians, we must support Israel. We must pray for Her. We must defend Her. We must aid Her. And we must remember that we are members of Her as believers who have been grafted into Her body – Romans 11:16-24. It is through Israel’s Messiah that we receive salvation and eternal life. It was through the Jews of the early church that the Gospel was brought to us, the Gentiles. Now it is through us that the Gospel must be carried back to Israel, to God’s chosen people, to receive their own Messiah, as God more and more softens their hearts of stone and removes the scales from their eyes so that they may see and accept the truth.
