God gave a promise to Abraham that his descendants would be given (what we know as) the Promised Land after four generations.
- Then the Lord said to Abram, “Know of a surety that your descendants will be sojourners in a land that is not theirs, and will be slaves there, and they will be oppressed for four hundred years; but I will bring judgment on the nation which they serve, and afterward they shall come out with great possessions. As for yourself, you shall go to your fathers in peace; you shall be buried in a good old age. And they shall come back here in the fourth generation; for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet complete.” (Genesis 15:13–16)
ISIS is different to the Israelites that came out of Egypt, not only because they seek to establish a Caliphate over lands that were not given to Abraham by God, but also because this is a terrorist organization funded by the highest ranking political Muslim figure in the world—one who had received a Nobel peace prize. ISIS exists because a military power has sought to take advantage of existing hostilities and aggravate them for their own purposes. ISIS does not exist because it has been given a direct mandate from God.
According to Aaron Zelin (The Washington Institute of New East Policy) ISIS first had its roots in Jamaat al-Tawhid wa-l-Jihad JTWJ founded by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi who possessed a “criminal past and extreme views on takfir (accusing another Muslim of heresy and thereby justifying his killing)”
The major difference between the ancient Hebrews of the Bible and ISIS is the first God ordained and the latter is manmade.
ISIS has grown from a group of malcontents that have been agitated by political operatives who have provided funding and arms in an surreptitious attempt to take out Shiite Syria while blaming this upon Sunni Islam.
The Hebrew people, who occupied the land that they were given by God, had come out of slavery and had been given a cultural system which to adhere, so they could honor God. The aim was for their well-being and success to be the envy of the nations as the people conformed to the will of God. Unfortunately, evil seemed to rule the people’s hearts rather than the desire for God and the goodness and pleasure of walking in His ways.
Although many people disagree, there are those who say that Israel today is reaping the blessings of God because the nation has turned what was virtually a desert into a thriving land of abundance (Isaiah 27:6) where their fruit would flll the world
Written: perhaps between 701-681 BC and Fulfilled: late 1900s. The prophet says; Israel would one day blossom and fill the world with its fruit. This prophecy has been at least partially fulfilled, literally and symbolically. Today, the land of Israel, which had been barren for centuries, is a leading producer of agricultural products, exporting food to many countries. This prophecy also has been fulfilled symbolically with the worldwide spread of Christianity. The very first believers; "The Way" began with Yeshua (Jesus) in Israel and now have about 2 billion followers worldwide. —Israel God's Prophetic BlessingISIS and the Hebrews that became the nation Israel are vastly different. The Hebrews were effectively delivering a judgment of God upon the Amorite peoples who occupied the land that God had promised Abraham. What ISIS is doing has nothing to do with the promise God had given to Abraham.
