I love you EG, I don't want to see you tripped up. All I'm trying to do is show you scripture to help you see the truth. We both know that Abraham never inherited Canaan, but we both know that he did inherit the promised land because the verses I posted way back (can't remember the passage now) said that Abraham received his inheritance. I'll see if I can find those verses again.
abraham did not need to recieve it, he died before it was theirs just like God told him he would. (Even though he did live in the land and was buried there)
his descendents did inherit it, and as God said, it would be theirs forever
God told them if they sinned, he would punish them, up to and including destruction of their cities and temple and them being scattered to their enemies lands.
just like God promised he would do, that happened, because Isreal sinned (and is still in sin)
the same God that kept that promise, also promised if they repent, he will remember his promise he will remember the land (he promised)
you have him literally fulfilling the punishment. But reject he will fulfill the promise if they repent
jesus will inherit the world, he will also sit on David’s throne,
one day you will believe it, if not in this lifetime in the next
