Canaan Flowing With Milk, Honey & Broken Promises
Unity Consciousness #500


God says the Israelites are entitled to the land because God promised Abraham.
“And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey; unto the place of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites.”[all of which are descendants of Noah, same as Abraham] (Exodus 3:8)

In Love, God Calls The Israelites, A Stiffnecked People

Then God says, you are so stiffnecked (stubborn to the point of stupidity), I can't stand to be around you, and if I hung around you for more than a minute, your behavior is so disgusting, that even I couldn't stand it so I'd have to kill you.
“Unto a land flowing with milk and honey: for I will not go up in the midst of thee; for thou art a stiffnecked people: lest I consume thee in the way.” (Exodus 33:3)
Despite the above verse, the story says God spent plenty of time in the tabernacle/house of God talking to Moses, others and around the Israelites in general. At the same time there are numerous references to how sinful the Israelites were being before, during and after wandering in the desert and detailing all the punishments and blessings. The Israelites and God share a “We/I love you, We/I love you not,” relationship full of broken promises.

The Israelites are called stiffnecked, stiffhearted, stubborn, prostitutes, whores, wicked, evil and many other unflattering names by God and by themselves over the course of their bible-based relationship.
”Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye.” (Acts 7:51)

Abraham Left Two Lands Of Milk & Honey

”In the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:” (Genesis 15)
The above is a description of the western and eastern borders of Canaan, the promised land flowing with milk and honey. This means mlik and honey flowed in the land between the River of Egypt in the area now called the Sinai Peninsula to the Euphrates River (Turkey, Syria, Iraq).

Abraham came from Ur of Chaldea which is near the convergence of the Euphrates & Tigris Rivers. This is the first land of milk and honey Abraham left.

Abraham and his father Terah and others then went to Haran/Charan. This land is also on the Euphrates River. This is the second land flowing with milk and honey Abraham left.

The story surrounding Abraham is starting to fall apart with each examination of each detail.

Before going on his journey to reach the promised land, Abraham twice lived in Mesopotamia between the Euphrates & Tigris Rivers. Mesopotamia is also called the Fertile Crescent. If this is not a land of milk and honey, then what is?

The Israelites Left Milk & Honey Also

“Is it a small matter to thee, that thou hast brought us out of a land that flowed with milk and honey, to kill us in the desert, except thou rule also like a lord over us? (Numbers 16)

Milk & Honey Like White As Snow

If Canaan can be described as a land flowing with milk and honey, then Kemet (Egypt), Kush & the entire Hapi River Valley can be described as a land overflowing with nectar that nurtures every need.

The Hapi River Valley is where the first human seed was planted in the Garden.

“And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered every where, before the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, even as the garden of the Lord, like the land of Egypt, as thou comest unto Zoar.” (Genesis 13)
”For the land, whither thou goest in to possess it, is not as the land of Egypt, from whence ye came out, where thou sowedst thy seed, and wateredst it with thy foot, as a garden of herbs:” (Deuteronomy 11)

Crossing The Jordan River Barrier

Lot (Abraham's nephew) understood that land around rivers can support abundance and produce abundance much easier than land not around rivers, other waterways and bodies of water. Both sides of the Jordan River would be lands of milk and honey. There is no need to have to cross over to one side in order to find milk and honey conditions.

We often come to a river of understanding, but fail to cross over.
Milk and honey is a metaphor for abundance of life-sustaining resources.
The Jordan River Barrier prevents us from recognizing where we are and that milk and honey doesn't flow where we don't recognize it as being so. Crossing the Jordan River Barrier will help us move from one understanding to the next. Some understandings are that way. They require more than just taking steps on the basis we're used to. In order to reach these understandings we must use different ways of going and different ways of knowing.

The mode of transportation that gets us to the edge/continuation of more understanding cannot be the same mode of transportation that gets us across to the other side of understanding – that is unless, we're crossing a shallow or narrow portion of the river of understanding. This is natural and normal; however, some rivers require us to go deeper into self and deeper into something else in order to cross the barrier that moves us from promises to promises and abundance to abundance.
