Does God really promise to give us our own nation?

Joel Osteen Psalm 2.8Recently, Joel Osteen Ministries posted on Facebook that we should pray “hidden dreams” and “unborn promises” based on Psalm 2:8.

I disagree, and write about it here on the BTS blog.  (The blog was written in August, but publication was delayed.)

My perspective is also quoted here in this article in the Christian Post (written by Nicola Menzie).

In Psalm 2:8, God promises to give the nations.  I keep asking for the nation of Tahiti, but God hasn’t come through yet.  Perhaps, I’m not righteous enough (see James 5:16)?
