The Lord made certain irrevocable and UNBREAKABLE covenants with the fathers of Israel.
Gen. 12:1-4 To Abraham, “I WILL MAKE OF THEE A GREAT NATION, …. and thy name shall be GREAT, …. and in thee shall all the families of the earth be blessed.” Gen. 15:18 – The same day the Lord made a covenant with Abraham, saying “unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of EGYPT unto the great river, the river EUPHRATES.”
Gen. 17:19 God promised Abraham he would have a son and said of Isaac that, “I will establish my covenant with him and his seed after him for an EVERLASTING COVENANT WITH HIM.”
Gen. 22:16-18 To Abraham, “By myself have I sworn, …. that in blessing, I will bless thee, …. and in thee shall all the families of the earth be blessed.”
Gen. 26:4 The covenant renewed in Isaac: “And all nations to be blessed in him.” Gen. 35:10-11 To Jacob, Isaac’s son, “A NATION AND COMPANY OF NATIONS shall be of thee. Thy name shall no more be called Jacob, but Israel, shall thy name be.”
Gen. 48:19 In blessing the twelve sons of Jacob, of Ephraim he said: “His seed shall become a multitude of nations.” Of Manasseh he said: “He shall be A (GREAT) PEOPLE and he also shall be GREAT.”
All the sons of Jacob and their families went down into Egypt for 400 years, and come out a great multitude to Mount Sinai.
Exodus 19 and 20 Israel formed into a KINGDOM, and given their constitution of Laws, Statutes, Judgments and Commandments. God Himself was their King. These laws would demand obedience, which would bring forth untold blessings; disobedience would bring forth punishment and displacement from God’s rulership and their land. Lev. 26 In this chapter it repeats four times, “for seven times (a period of 2520 years) WILL I PUNISH YOU, but I WILL NOT CAST YOU AWAY FOREVER.” Some 400 years later they DEMANDED an EARTHLY KING. THIS WAS GRANTED. When David was crowned king, NATHAN, the prophet, came to David (2 Sam. 7:10) and said, “I will appoint a place for my people Israel where they may dwell alone and where the children of iniquity shall afflict them no more, neither shall they move any more at all. V.16 - “Moreover, Thy house, Thy throne and Thy Kingdom (of Israel) shall be established for ever before thee.” Concerning the thrones of other kingdoms at the approaching end of this age, Daniel the prophet, said in chapter 7:9 : “I beheld till the thrones were cast down.” IS THIS NOT A TRUTH TODAY?
In 930BC there was seen great disobedience and a division of the 12 tribes into two Kingdoms; one of Israel with 10 tribes, and one of Judah with 2 tribes. Of Israel of the 10 tribes, Isaiah the prophet in Chapter 41:9 said: "Thou art my servant O Israel; I have chosen thee and NOT cast thee away;" But disobedience brought them under the provision of the 2520 years of punishment and displacement from rulership with their God. NOT SO THE KINGDOM OF JUDAH. Of them, JEREMIAH, the prophet, said: Chapter 17:1,4 "The SIN of JUDAH is WRITTEN WITH A PEN OF IRON and the POINT OF A DIAMOND. IT IS GRAVEN UPON THEIR HEART; and THOU SHALT DISCONTINUE FROM THINE HERITAGE THAT I GAVE TO THEE, FOR YE HAVE KINDLED A FIRE IN MINE ANGER THAT SHALL BURN FOREVER."
In 741 BC - 1 Chron. 5:25-26 - records: "The king of Assyria carried away Reuben and Gad and the half tribe of Manasseh (all those east of the Jordan) and brought them to Halah, Habor and Hara, in the land of Assyria."
In 721 BC - 2 Kings 18:11: "And the king of Assyria did carry away Israel (of the remaining seven and half tribes west of the Jordan) and brought them to Habor, Halah and Hara in Assyria." In v.13, Sennacherib, King of Assyria, came up against all the fenced cities of Judah and took them in 701 BC. (in 604BC the remnant of Judah went captive to Babylon). From Assyria, Israel migrated under different names, through the different countries to their appointed place of 2 Sam. 7:10. From there we see 2520 years later, Manasseh in 1776AD made her declaration of the GREAT PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
In the year 1800AD came the declaration of the UNION OF THE BRITISH ISLES GREAT NATION AND COMPANY OF NATIONS IN THE BRITISH COMMONWEALTH OF NATIONS, whose NAME is GREAT. There she now awaits the coming of her REDEEMER and SAVIOUR to deliver us from the hands of our enemies and out of the hand of all that HATE US. In confirmation Hebrews 6:13-20 we have: "For when God made the promise to Abraham, BECAUSE HE COULD SWEAR BY NO GREATER HE SWEAR BY HIMSELF, saying, "in blessing I will bless thee and in multiplying, I will multiply thee." And so after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise. For men swear by the greater, and an oath of confirmation is to them an end of all strife: wherein God more abundantly, to show unto the heirs of the promise the immutability of His counsel confirmed it by an oath, that by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, that we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold on the hope set before us. Which hope we have as an anchor for the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which entereth into that within the vale. Whither the fore-runner is for us entered, even Jesus made an High Priest forever after the Order of Melchizedek."
Luke 1:32 "And the Lord God shall give unto Him (Jesus) the Throne of His father David and He shall reign over the House of Jacob forever and of His Kingdom there shall be no end."
