The Lord said to Abram, “Go forth from your native land and from your father’s house to the Land that I will show you. I will make of you a great nation, And I will bless you; I will make your name great, And you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you And curse him that curses you; And all the families of the earth Shall bless themselves by you.”
The Land of Israel—which sits at the intersection of Africa, Europe, and Asia—is not a regular piece of land. “For the land that you are about to enter [Israel] and possess is not like the land of Egypt from which you have come... It is a land which the Lord your God looks after, on which the Lord your God always keeps His eye, from year’s beginning to year’s end” (Deuteronomy 11:12). The Land of Israel is a miraculous place. It is the Land where God chose to establish His name and where His presence on earth rests (Deut. 16:6, 12:11; I Kings 9:3; Jer. 7:10).
