Several times in this series we have claimed that the Jew's life in Egypt, their journey through the desert, and their conquest of the Promised land, are an easily grasped analogy for our own journey and spiritual development.
In our third series, "The way to freedom", we will among other things, do a detailed study of the partial goals which are marked on the picture.
Here we will start with a brief overview:
The Bible itself claims that all this happened primarily for our sake in order to:
|Can you grasp that God has recommended a model with partial goals for several thousand years! Isn't it about time then, that we start to apply this model to our own lives, just as the apostles did in their time ? (1Cor 10:1-14)|
Then the world will finally see the Church come into its own and function as the "body of Christ" here on earth and thus become the living advertisement that is God's purpose for our Christian lives. This is also the way in which the conditions for the last great revival are created (more about this in series 2).
