If God is the Giver of Life, He Can Take It
If God exists as the Bible describes him, he is the giver of life and has complete authority to take it when and as he wills. He could destroy the world by a flood or eliminate Sodom and Gomorrah by fire in a way that no human has the right or power to do. If in the judgment of God the Jews were to be placed in a certain land so that they might prepare the way for the Messiah, he had the right to give them that land, as the earth is his. If the original inhabitants had to be removed, both as punishment for their wickedness and to ensure that the Jews would be permanently establish in the land, God had the right to make that judgment.
