“Upon their arrival at Kadesh Barnea, which bordered the Promised Land of Canaan, they sent out twelve spies to survey the land and its people. They returned after forty days of exploration. Ten of the spies had a bad report [. . .]  Only [two] dissented. Believing the report of the ten doubters, the people lost heart and rebelled […], saying, “If only we had died in Egypt! Or in this desert! Why is the LORD bringing us to this land only to let us fall by the sword?” (Excerpts of Numbers 13 and 14).


Thought Adjuster: “After being delivered from Egyptian captivity under the sagacious leadership of Moses, who “was an extraordinary combination of military leader, social organizer, and religious teacher [UB, 96:5.1], the Israelites had almost reached the land God had promised their forefathers, a land “flowing with milk and honey.” Due to their doubt and disbelief upon debriefing their forty day reconnaissance party, God extended by forty years their wilderness wandering so that unbelieving generation died off, never stepping foot in the Promised Land.


God’s covenant was made to Abraham through Machiventa Melchizedek. It prophesied the future occupation of Canaan by Abraham’s offspring. “[It] represents the great Urantian [Earth] agreement between divinity and humanity whereby God agrees to do everything; man only agrees to believe God’s promises and follow his instructions.” [UB, 93:6.3-4]


The Old Testament relates a similar situation where a heavy price was paid for looking back to the past. It occurred when Lot, Abraham’s nephew, fled the corrupted City of Sodom with his family to escape destruction.  His wife looked back and turned into a pillar of salt. 


The point I wish to make is that a faith-child of God does not look back—only forward. Faith is the gateway to the inner promised land of spiritual blossoming, a place of never-ending hope and positive achievements under divine inner guidance. Why would you turn your back on such a splendid covenant? Haven’t you wandered long enough? Come home where you belong! Follow the leadership of the fearless leaders the Father provides for you—the likes of Moses or Jesus—or become one since you are Spirit-led on the inner!”
