True Homeland Security

"These all died in faith without having received the promises, but they saw them from a distance, greeted them, and confessed that they were foreigners and temporary residents on the earth. Now those who say such things make it clear that they are seeking a homeland. If they had been remembering that land they came from, ("earth"-my comment) they would have had opportunity to return. But they now aspire to a better land-a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them."

"So don't throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. For you need endurance, after you have done God's will, you may receive what was promised."
