4WD, sorry you believe that. If what you say is true, then what you're basically saying is, God was not/ and is not able or capable of keeping his promises to Abraham, David, and the Jews themselves.
Example, both sides of my family were born in Italy, my mother and Father were born here. I was the 2ed generation, and my kids the third generation, and their kids the 4th generation. Now all my son and daughter in laws are Italian as were their families. Now would you say, I am not Italian and my great grandkids are not Italian's because we have been in America for the past 3 generations?
Ask yourself, what is a Jew? When the 10 Northern tribes went to war with the two Southern tribes the North had over 1 million men, the South 300,000. Naturally the North prevailed. The second time they went to war, they had equal numbers, and the last time the South had over a million and the North a small remnant. Why? Because in that period of war, many in the 10 Northern tribes migrated South, after all they had the temple in Jerusalem, and a better civil and religious structure set up. In other words, all 12 tribes were represented in Judea, the South. Also, only 24 or 25 thousand Jews out of probably at that time 3 or 4 million were taken into slavery by the Assyrian's in 721 B.C.
Point two, For the past 2000 years, their enemies always knew were to find them, the Popes of Rome, the Muslims, the Ottoman, Stalin, Hitler, and today every Arab in the world knows where to find them. The Christian church knows who they are and for what purpose they have been preserved by God.
The Jews never, ever completely mixed with the people of the many different nations they had been scattered to, their places of worship have been found recently in the farthest North of Russia. In the past 69 years, they have by the will and authority of God migrated back to their homeland as promised by God, thus fulfilling God's promises.
As for me, I will never say that God is/was not capable or able to keep his promises to Abraham and David, etc. I'm absolutely sure, he has saved for himself this people in order to fulfill his will.
Deut.30:4-5, "If any of thine (the Jews) be driven out (from their land 70 A.D.) from there will the LORD thy God gather them, and from there (these foreign Gentile countries) will He (God) fetch (gather) them (the Jews): And the LORD thy God will bring thee (the Jews) into the land which thy fathers Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David etc.) possessed, and you (the Jews) shall possess it (the land of Israel); and He (God) will do you good, and multiply you above your fathers."
Amos 9:14-15, "I = (God) will bring again the captivity of my people (the Jews) of Israel, and they (the Jews) shall build the waste (desolate) cities, and inhabit them ...And I will plant them upon their land (Israel), and they shall no more (never) be pulled up out (taken out) of their land which I have given them, saith the LORD thy God."
Joel 3:1-7-20, "Behold, in those (last) days, and in that time, when I (God) shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem ... I will raise them out of the place (gentile countries) whither ye have sold them ... Judah (Israel) shall dwell forever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation."
For over 1900 years, the land lay desolate, just as God said it would, and since the Jews have moved back, it flourishes like never before, just as God promised.
Samuel Clemens, better known as Mark Twain, traveled in the ancient land of Israel around the time of our Civil War, 1865. He wrote a book called Innocence Abroad. In that book he gave this graphic description of the land of Israel in 1865.
He write, “The land is a total desolation. Not even the weeds of the desert will grow here. We traveled mile after mile and never saw another human being. The further we went toward Jerusalem the hotter the sun got. By the time we got to Jerusalem,...” he wrote, “...I would not want to live here.” Israel was out in the dispersion for 1900 years, and the land lay wasted. Other travelers have used the term “Godforsaken” in their description of Israel under the Arabs; that is until the Jews became a nation in one day, May 13, 1948.
