Three merits are mentioned by Rabbi Yochanan (Mesechta Pesachim 113a) as entitling one to the afterlife of Olam Haba (World-to-Come). One of them is living in Eretz Yisrael. Implied in this, however, is a warning regarding the gravity of sins committed in such a holy place, which can place serious obstacles on that road to reward.
