God promises Abraham and all his seed all the land that the ancicents knew.
“Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates: The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites, And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims, And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.
Further, because Abram is willing to sacrifice his “only” son in order to demonstrate his “faith”, God promises Abram that his seed shall multiply beyond the number of stars and that his seed shall possess the gate of their enemies.
“I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies”.
God’s Promises Didn’t Prevent The Holocaust
Note that God has not done anything that he promised: Jews are having trouble holding on to one one-hundredth of the land God promised, and they are a small minority of the earth’s population. But worse, He stood by as Hitler murdered over six million of Abrams seed. Didn’t intervene one iota as he did a mere 3500 years ago when he helped subdue the Amorites by throwing down huge hailstones at them:
“they were more which died with hailstones than they whom the children of Israel slew with the sword”.
What About the Others Who Did Not Bow To Yahweh?
Note that God did nothing to the Asians, the Australians, those living in the Americas, the Africans, etc. all of whom were worshiping other Gods. They were not punished as were those who happened to occupy the land that God promised to Abram’s seed. We think it’s because the authors of Genesis didn’t even know about those lands, even though all books of the Bible are supposed to be inspired/written/directed/dictated/whatever by God Himself. How can it be that there were infidels all over the globe, and yet God only slaughtered those who happened to live in the vicinity of the children of Israel?
God has not been heard from since that short period of time around 3500 years ago when He was chitty-chatty with just about everyone named in the Old Testament. Some think he may be dead. Some don’t even believe there is a God. They even use the broken promises and silence during the Holocaust as evidence that there is no god. Count us among those who believe there is no God.
