Numerous Examples of God’s Promise To The Children of Israel
The old testament is full of promises from God to the Children of Israel. There are over 100 verses in the Old Testament where God promises to not only protect but make the Children of Israel the rulers of the world. Here are two of the ;promises:
I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
‘I will establish a place for my people Israel, and they will not be disturbed anymore. Violent men will not oppress them again. I will subdue all your enemies
The Truth Is…
HE DID NOT KEEP A ONE OF THEM!
There is no need to enumerate all of the promises or God’s failures.. It only takes one example to falsify all of God’s promises.
Since God made those two promises, his people “Israel” have been located all over the world and welcomed nowhere. They have been beset by the “children of wickedness” for millenniums, especially around the years 1939 – 1945.
Where was God and his promise during the Holocaust?

Here is one more example of God’s unfilled promise to the Children of Israel:
For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted.
The glory of Lebanon shall come unto thee, the fir tree, the pine tree, and the box together, to beautify the place of my sanctuary; and I will make the place of my feet glorious.
The sons also of them that afflicted thee shall come bending unto thee; and all they that despised thee shall bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet; and they shall call thee; The city of the LORD, The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.
Whereas thou has been forsaken and hated, so that no man went through thee, I will make thee an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations.
WHEN is this going to happen? Surely those that heard the LORD say those words believed that THEY would be the beneficiaries of the promise. The Zion of the Holy One of Israel didn’t even exist until about 50 years ago. And, if it weren’t for the money and weapons from the United States, it would have been overrun long ago.
Versus like those quoted above can be found throughout the Old Testament. No point in beating a dead horse. They are there.
We Shouldn’t Even Be Here….
“In the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” 2:17
God says that if Adam eats from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, then the day that he does so, he will die. But Adam eats the forbidden fruit (3:6) and yet lives for another 930 years (5:5). Adam went on to create a people so filled with evil (what do you expect after 8 generations of incest?) that God would eventually drown all but eight of them along with their pets.
Turns out that the serpent was right
And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 3:4
Why should Eve have believed “God” any more than the serpent? How was she to know who the real God was? God lied to her; the serpent told the truth. The take-away from this little fable is “believe the serpent”.
Why Do People Continue to Believe God is There For THEM?
In light of the obvious fact that the promises of God have never been kept, why do people continue to believe that God is there for them?
