Abrahamic Land Promise to Israel was fulfilled 3000 years ago!
Israel becoming a nation in 1948 does not fulfill Bible prophecy!
"So the LORD gave Israel ALL the land which He had sworn to give to their fathers, and they possessed it and lived in it.
And the LORD gave them rest on every side, according to all that He had sworn to their fathers, and no one of all their enemies stood before them; the LORD gave all their enemies into their hand.
Not one of the good promises which the LORD had made to the house of Israel failed; all came to pass." Joshua 21:43-45
▶ Restoration happens in the Millennium not on this earth as we know it.
▶ "…And I will make them one nation in the land on the mountains of Israel, and one King shall be king to them all. And they shall not still be two nations, nor shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all," Ezekiel 37:21-22.
i have not studied the prophetic side of this matter, as you seem to have, only the historic one, which i will share with you some of what i have learned.
the promise, (as one can plainly see) from was mostly satisfied by the time of alexander the great, and then again during the umayyed caliphate. now, this is not to say that there will not be a further claim on the land pressed by the 12 tribes alone.
i myself have levitic blood, but don't see myself slaughtering saudi princes. the main point is that there is to be no more killing now that the new and better covenant has been fulfilled.
the questions about YHVH's command to slaughter is still a hot potato in the eyes of many christians, but it has to do with two main issues -
a) the disobedience of ismael, midian, esau and others - they were told to occupy other lands
b) the obedience of the 12 sons of jacob - they were told to not intermarry and stay holy.
Sounds legit to me.
