It is important to understand what Jesus explained about Himself in all the Scriptures – especially from Moses onward and all the prophets! Israel is also referred to as the “church in the wilderness” in Acts 7:38. Even though the Israelites survived by supernatural means in the wilderness for 40 years, they failed to grasp what God had in mind for them. Their unbelief disqualified them.
The Lord is currently releasing forerunners like John the Baptist – who appeared in the wilderness (the voice of one crying in the wilderness!), proclaiming that the Kingdom of heaven has come near. For how long will the church continue to wander in this world with that old sin-consciousness – and that, after Christ declared on the Cross: IT IS FINISHED…? Hasn’t the time come for the true Church to come out of that “wilderness” mentality, discovering our true identity – the Kingdom of God manifesting on earth as it is in heaven, and find our Promised Land of REST? If Joshua had given them rest, God would not have spoken about another day after that. However, God again fixed a certain day, TODAY! Let us be diligent to enter that rest! God’s rest celebrates His finished work!
