Abram’s Covenant

“It came about when the sun had set, that it was very dark, and behold, there appeared a smoking oven and a flaming torch which passed between these pieces. On that day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying,

“To your descendants I have given this land,
From the river of Egypt as far as the great river, the river Euphrates:”. Genesis 9:17-18

Abram was promised a huge piece of land. This covenant was made with a three year old heifer, a three year old female goat, a three year old ram, a turtle dove and a pigeon. Even during Solomon’s reign, he did not have all this land. This still awaits fulfillment. Israel will reach from the Nile to the Euphrates.
