The Gospel in the Old Testament – 10 – Moses – a land of milk and honey

The Lord promised Moses and his nation, the Israelites, that he would bring them to a new land flowing with milk and honey. This promise is often repeated and recited to the people to encourage them and it is important for all believers today. Milk and honey show us in a picture the blessings of heaven. There we are changed into the full and mature beings God intends for us to be – in the image of Christ. There are the sweet joys and pleasures of the unending love of God. May all who hear deeply long for heaven in their hearts and keep their minds fixed on that land. May you have a taste of the sweetness of heaven even now in walking with Christ. The main bible verse is Exodus 13:15.
