"The righteous will possess the earth, And they will live forever on it." Ps. 37:29 - It was never God's original plan for all people to dwell in Heaven. He never changed his plan. The teaching that all people in the world who die will go to heaven is not in the bible. Only a select few, who will be kings and priests over the earth will go to heaven. The earth will be restored and his original plan will take place just as God promised.
