There the LORD showed him the whole land.

Deuteronomy 34:1

Poets, prophets and statesmen called it ‘the holy land’, ‘the pleasant land’, ‘the glorious land’.
God calls it ‘My land.’
Believers are called to enter upon it day by day as our inheritance — but, as in Israel’s day, it must be fought for and defended from the enemy who would plunder and rob. First comes a vision of all the land — not just a patch that suits me.
