Dan. 7:27 And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him
It's my understanding that the saints of the most High are Christians. The kingdom will last forever not just a 1,000 years.[/hosQUOTE]
In the context of the book of Daniel, 'the people of the saints of the most High' are Daniel's people... Israel. The Church, the Body of Christ, is not in view except in the minds of those who want to retroactively insert the BOC there unjustifiably.
It is my current understanding that the church is on earth and in heaven.
Yes, but that is not Israel.
The plan for the church was before the foundation of the world.
Yes indeed, but wasn't revealed thru the prophets of Israel, but was hidden in GOD, and revealed by Christ to and thru the Apostle Paul.
Eph. 1:10 as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.
That describes a dispensation that is a long way yet to come.
Outside of the church, death.
