    SAINTS’ INHERITANCE

    Abraham was promised the land. “And the Lord appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land.” Genesis 12:7; 3:14, 15; 17:8; 26:3, 4; 28:13.BSA 6.1

    He has not possessed it. Acts 8:5; Hebrews 11:8, 9.BSA 6.2

    The faithful are heirs with him. Galatians 3:7, 9, 29; Romans 4:16.BSA 6.3

    The promise embraces the earth. Romans 4:13; Hebrews 11:13; Psalm 37:11; Matthew 5:5; Proverbs 11:31; Psalm 115:16.BSA 6.4

    The earth, cursed for sin, will be redeemed. Genesis 3:17, 18; Romans 8:20-23; Ephesians 1:13, 14; 2 Peter 3:13; Isaiah 65:17, 18; Revelation 21:1.1It will be seen by reference to page 5, that the saints will go to heaven, and the earth will be desolate, without an inhabitant. We find in the scriptures but one place for the removing of all the inhabitants of the earth; viz: at the second advent, when the wicked are all destroyed, and the saints caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. From this point a period of 1000 years is measured off before the resurrection of the wicked, which denotes the period during which the saints remain in the city above, until the time of the renewing of the earth, for their eternal abode, which cannot take place until after the second resurrection.BSA 6.5
