Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come. 1 Corinthians 10:11
Just as being freed from slavery in Egypt pictures our salvation, so wandering in the wilderness pictures the carnal Christian life, going nowhere! Saved? Yes. Living in victory? No! Not maturing, just coasting through life with their fire insurance policy in hand. Perpetual babies they are, never graduating from milk to meat, only crying out to daddy when something is wrong and they need something, and never coming of age spiritually to the place of real faithfulness and responsibility. 40 years later when that rebellious generation died off the new generation marched into the Promised Land and possessed it. This land was called Canaan.
Canaan is a picture of the victorious Christian life. It’s not heaven. Moses couldn’t enter this land because He disobeyed, but you’ll see Moses in heaven someday! The life of victory isn’t a life of perfection, but of growth. Growing in grace, maturing, taking higher ground, gaining victories in life, over sin, over the world, over our own flesh, and over the devil. There three different spiritual locations, every person can only be in one of these locations at a point in time. One, is Egypt, anyone in Egypt is still in slavery to sin, and such person need to be saved. Two, in the wilderness, this person is saved but he/she is going nowhere other than in circles. They are saved for years but not maturing. They don’t dig deep into the Bible, they don’t pray fervently, their tithe is not consistent, still not making commitments to be faithful and to serve. Been saved for years but never led a soul to Christ! They’re not much closer to God than they were the day they got saved. The third location is, Canaan, excited, growing, having the joy of the Lord. They’re not a wilderness wanderer, but a giant conqueror!
This is the location you must be this year in order to enjoy the MILK AND HONEY the Lord God of Liberation has promised us this year. You cannot do your Christian life business as usual. Something must change about you this year and it must be a radical change to live for God and blindly follow His instructions.
