RIGHTEOUS PEOPLE WILL INHERIT THIS EARTH AND SOME WILL GO TO HEAVEN

GOD’S PEOPLE WILL INHERIT THIS EARTH AND SOME WILL GO TO HEAVEN (144,000)

Psalms 78:69 And he began to build his sanctuary just like the heights,
Like the  EARTH that he has founded to TIME INDEFINITE.

Psalms 37:9 For evildoers themselves will be cut off,
But those hoping in Jehovah are the ones that will possess the earth..

10 And just a little while longer, and the wicked one will be no more;
And you will certainly give attention to his place, and he will not be.

11 But the meek ones themselves will possess the earth,
And they will indeed find their exquisite delight in the abundance of peace.

In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus made a promise that reminds us of the scriptures quoted above: “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. (Matthew 5:5, Revised Standard Version)

In the beginning, the earth was directly linked to God’s purpose for humans. “As regards the heavens, to Jehovah the heavens belong, but the earth he has given to the sons of men,” wrote the psalmist. (Psalm 115:16) God’s original purpose for mankind was thus connected with the earth, not with heaven. Jehovah gave the first human couple the commission to expand the garden in Eden to cover the earth. (Genesis 1:28) This purpose was not temporary. Jehovah affirms in his Word that the earth will last forever: “A generation is going, and a generation is coming; but the earth is standing even to time indefinite.”—Ecclesiastes 1:4; 1 Chronicles 16:30; Isaiah 45:18.

In his model prayer, Jesus invited his disciples to pray for God’s will to take place “as in heaven, also upon earth.” (Matthew 6:9, 10) Would these words make sense if the earth disappeared or was merely a symbol of heaven?

Everlasting life on earth is what the Creator, the God who ‘has not changed,’ originally purposed. (Malachi 3:6; John 17:3; James 1:17)

Psalms 37:29 The righteous themselves will possess the earth,
And they will reside forever upon it.
