New Jerusalem- Only Christians inherit what was promised to Abraham.

Only Christians inherit what was promised to Abraham.

This area is God's Kingdom New Jerusalem.

It is NOT of this world.

It is unseen and eternal.

It was established in AD70 when Yeshua returned in His Kingdom, New Jerusalem, in judgment of the 12 tribes of Israel.

Genesis 15:18  In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:
19  The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites,
20  And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims,
21  And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.

The illustration above is the landmass that was promised to Abraham and his SEED.

Abraham's seed was Christ:

Galatians 3:16  Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.

Therefore, the landmass in the illustration is actually God's Kingdom and is inherited by Christians.

This area of land WAS NOT promised to Israel.  It was promised to Abraham and his seed, which is Christ.

Revelation 3:12  Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

Revelation 21:1  And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
2  And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
3  And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

Revelation 21:7  He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
8  But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Revelation 21:15  And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.
16  And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.

The dimensions of New Jerusalem are exactly those of the land promised to Abraham, a man of FAITH and not a man of the LAW. 

Those who "overcome (this world)" through BELIEF and FAITH in Jesus will inherit God's Kingdom- New Jerusalem. 

Those who do not "overcome" will not inherit God's Kingdom. They will inherit eternal torment in the "lake of fire"- which is the second death and of which there is no escape.

1 John 5:4  For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
1 John 5:5  Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

The Jews will not inherit God's Kingdom.
They are not overcoming the world.
They are building their kingdom of the world.
They are in the process of gaining the entire world.
But they are forfeiting their souls in the process.

2 Corinthians 4:18  While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

Their visible kingdom will perish.

God's invisible Kingdom is eternal.
