Will the Zionist state of Israel occupy the Kingdom of Jordan to fulfill Biblical prophecies?
There is no doubt that the 12 tribes of Israel were promised a land from the Mediterranean ocean to the river Euphrates.
On that day the LORD made a covenant with Abram and said, “To your descendants I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates.
There is also Biblical evidence that the rule of the tribe of Ruben reached the Euphrates river.
1 Chronicles 5:8-10
Their relatives by clans, listed according to their genealogical records: Jeiel the chief, Zechariah, and Bela son of Azaz, the son of Shema, the son of Joel. They settled in the area from Aroer to Nebo and Baal Meon. To the east they occupied the land up to the edge of the desert that extends to the Euphrates River, because their livestock had increased in Gilead.
The land close to the Euphrates river, was basically given to Gad and Ruben. Dan struggled to hold on to his land.
(But the Danites had difficulty taking possession of their territory, so they went up and attacked Leshem, took it, put it to the sword and occupied it. They settled in Leshem and named it Dan after their forefather.)
[ Danites Settle in Laish ] In those days Israel had no king. And in those days the tribe of the Danites was seeking a place of their own where they might settle, because they had not yet come into an inheritance among the tribes of Israel.
But when we reach the time of rule of King David, the Jewish homeland was established, and well mapped. The Bible says David had 1,1 million soldiers who protected the Jewish homeland from Dan to Beersheba.
1 Samuel 3:20
And all Israel from Dan to Beersheba recognized that Samuel was attested as a prophet of the LORD.
2 Samuel 3:10
and transfer the kingdom from the house of Saul and establish David’s throne over Israel and Judah from Dan to Beersheba.”
1 Kings 4:25
During Solomon’s lifetime Judah and Israel, from Dan to Beersheba, lived in safety, each man under his own vine and fig tree.
1 Chronicles 21:2
So David said to Joab and the commanders of the troops, “Go and count the Israelites from Beersheba to Dan. Then report back to me so that I may know how many there are.
1 Chronicles 21:5
Joab reported the number of the fighting men to David: In all Israel there were one million one hundred thousand men who could handle a sword, including four hundred and seventy thousand in Judah.
There were also a Jewish Kingdom that ruled the Biblical promised land, in the silent years of the Bible, just before Jesus the Messiah walked on Earth. One of the rulers was a Jewish Queen, Salome Alexandra of Jerusalem.
She was from the Jewish Hasmonean dynasty, who ruled in Jerusalem from Beersheba to Dan in the years 139 BC to 67 BC.
Take a look at the map (under), and see that her rule cover`s`all the promised areas given to the sons of Jacob.
The Jewish Parthian King Antigonus ruled in Jerusalem in the year 40 B.C, from his base at the river Euphrates. His rule over Jerusalem lasted three years.
The difference between the Biblical rule 2100 years ago and today, is the amount of Jews living East of Israel. During the Parthian Kingdoms the land between Jerusalem and Euphrates was full of Jews, who had not returned from the exile in Babylon.
Many times there were Jewish Kings or proselytes of Judaism ruling in Parthian Kingdoms. One of them was the Jewish kingdom of Adiabene, a city in Western Iraq.
The magi, the three Kings that came to visit baby Jesus, were most likely Jewish kings from Parthia. Jews from Parthia were also saved on the day of Pentecost.
The Jews east of Israel left Judaism more than 1000 years ago, to follow the teachings of the prophet Muhammad. There is no objective reason why God of Israel would like Jews to control this hostile land today. But there were objective Biblical reasons to bring the Jews home to the Mountain of Zion and Jerusalem. Simply to let them prepare for the second coming of His Son, Jesus of Nazareth.
