The Promise Continues
God never makes promises He doesn’t keep. And He will keep these.
To Abraham: And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a sojourner, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God (Gen. 17:8).
To Jacob: Behold, I will make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, and I will make of thee a multitude of people; and will give this land to thy seed after thee for an everlasting possession (Gen. 48:4).
To the children of Jacob: He hath remembered his covenant forever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations, . Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance (Ps. 105:8; 11).
Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken, neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate; but thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah; for the LORD delighteth in thee (Isa. 62:4).
Then will I cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers, forever and ever (Jer. 7:7).
And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob, my servant, in which your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell in it, even they, and their children, and their children’s children forever; and my servant, David, shall be their prince forever (Ezek. 37:25).
The grass withereth, the flower fadeth, but the word of our God shall stand forever (Isa. 40:8).
