Heaven or the Promised Land?
Most Christians believe their destiny is heaven. Yet, this concept is not biblical, but was borrowed from Greek philosophy and paganism.
The ancient hope of both Old Testament and New Testament saints was based squarely in the Abrahamic Covenant, the Land that God promised to Abraham and to his 'Seed' as an everlasting inheritance. Those who have been baptized into Christ are "Abraham's seed and heirs according to the promise."
Muslims and Jews are fighting over the Land God promised to Abraham and to his 'Seed.' Yet, the Bible is clear that it is God's Land. He promised it to Abraham personally as his eternal inheritance, and also to his 'Seed,' who is Jesus Christ and all who have been baptized into Him. The destiny of Christians is not heaven, as both amillennialists and dispensationalists teach. It is the restored Promised Land.
For an in-depth history of the development of eschatology, from Chiliasm to Amillennialism and Dispensationalism, refer to my book, Abraham's Permanent Land Inheritance
