Definition of the Week- Promised Land

Promised Land, n. A tract of land promised to Abraham’s descendants by God in a solemn oath to Abraham in the book of Genesis. This land was filled with the best the world had to offer at that time: walled cities, beautiful houses, prospering businesses and other existing infrastructures to support the establishment of God’s  covenant in all the earth.

Genesis 17:1- And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.
