Doctrine of Enemyship, Part 4. Why Satan wants to destroy the Jews. .

Friday, December 15, 2000

Point 2. There is both Personal and Historical Enemyship.

Personal enemyship existed between Esau and Jacob; historical enemyship exists between the Arabs and the Jews.

The historical objective, in which Satan sought to keep our Lord from being born; and then, to kill His humanity before He reached the cross.

Turn to REV 12:1

The prophetical objective, in which Satan seeks to destroy Israel before the Second Advent, so that the four unconditional covenants to Israel cannot be fulfilled.

The Abrahamic Covenant defines the race for client nation Israel. Abraham became a Jew at age 99; circumcision was the sign, GEN 12:1-3; GEN 13:15-16; GEN 15:18; GEN 22:15-18; GEN 26:3-4; EXO 6:2-8.

Abraham and his spiritual seed are the beneficiaries of blessing and logistical support from the justice of God.

This covenant was confirmed in sequence to those to whom it would pertain– to Isaac in contrast to his brothers in GEN 26:3-4.

The covenant was confirmed to Jacob instead of his twin brother Esau; GEN 28:13-14; GEN 35:12.

The covenant was the basis for the divine deliverance of the Jews from slavery in Egypt and the establishment of a client nation, EXO 6:2-8.

Turn to GEN 12:3

Barak – we receive blessing from God by our attitude toward the Jew.

The PalestinianCovenant The land for client nation Israel, GEN 15:18; NUM 34:1-12; DEU 30:1-9; JOS 1:3-4.

It includes all of the Middle East to the Euphrates river, all of Turkey, and half of Egypt and Ethiopia.

The grant was first proclaimed by God to Abraham as the father of the Jewish race in GEN 13:14-15; 15:18.

This land grant will not be fulfilled to client nation Israel until the millennial reign of Christ, relating it to the New Covenant to Israel, JER 31:31-34 cf. 32:36-44; Ezek 11:16-21, 36:21-38.

The Northwestern border of the land will be the Mediterranean Sea, including all of Turkey, because of the phrase “land of the Hittites.”

The Southern border will be the Nile river (the Red Sea will dry up), eastern Africa (Egypt, Kenya, Ethiopia) and all of Saudi Arabia.

The Eastern border will be Transjordania and Iraq. The Euphrates river is the northeastern border.

The Davidic Covenant defines the dynasty for client nation Israel, 2SA 7:8-16; PSA 89:20-37.

2SA 7:16And your house and your kingdom shall endure before Me forever; your throne shall be established forever.”
PSA 89:29So I will establish his descendants forever, And his throne as the days of heaven.”

This is the divine promise to David that he would have a son [the Lord Jesus Christ] who would rule Israel forever.

The virgin birth of the humanity of Christ, classified as the First Advent, which we call the Hypostatic Union.

The final fulfillment occurs at the Second Advent of Jesus Christ in His millennial and eternal reign.

The New Covenant defines the restoration of the client nation Israel at the Second Advent and its millennial modus operandi, JER 31:31-34.

This will be fulfilled during the Millennium and the eternal state, ISA 61:2-11; ISA 59:20-21, quoted in ROM 11:26-27.
