The Old Testament speaks of a land which God had promised to Abraham. This promise was reiterated to both Abraham’s son Isaac and to his grandson Jacob. After a period of bondage in Egypt, Abraham’s descendants (by this time numbering in the millions) were led by Moses out of captivity, into the wilderness, and right up to the borders of that Promised Land.
And yet, even after having God’s promise and even after seeing the abundance of the land, they failed to enter in. The book of Hebrews explains why:
Hebrews 3:19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.
As a result of their unbelief, the children of Israel spent nearly forty more years in the wilderness. Multitudes who could have spent the remainder of their lives enjoying a land “flowing with milk and honey” instead died in a bleak and sterile desert.
