  • The Promised Land In All Places

    Wednesday, August 16, 2017

    Eretz is a Hebrew word used in scripture for the world or the land - specifically, the land of Israel - and the earth. In the Sermon on the Mount, Messiah was quoting Psalm 37:11: "Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth". Eretz can mean both promised land and the whole world. As a believer, wherever you are in the world, you're meant to be dwelling in the promised land. Anywhere in the world/eretz, you can dwell in the eretz/promised land. Anywhere you live can become a promised land for you. Wherever you live, live as if you're in a land of promises. That's the way to dwell in His perfect will, His blessings, His promises, and His goodness. It doesn't matter where you are, it's Who you're with that makes any place in the world the Promised Land. It's great to make a pilgrimage to Israel, but it’s even better to dwell in the Promised Land no matter where you live. Learn to dwell there all the time, because as a child of God, you're given the blessing of dwelling in the land of promises.
    From Message #974 – Dwell

    Scripture: 1 Kings 8:56

    TODAY'S MISSION - Whatever you go today, live as if you're in the land of God, walking into His promises, and you will be!
