Numbers 13:1-2  And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,  2.  Send thou men, that they may search the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel: of every tribe of their fathers shall ye send a man, every one a ruler among them.

Numbers 13:17-25  And Moses sent them to spy out the land of Canaan, and said unto them, Get you up this way southward, and go up into the mountain:  18.  And see the land, what it is; and the people that dwelleth therein, whether they be strong or weak, few or many;  19.  And what the land is that they dwell in, whether it be good or bad; and what cities they be that they dwell in, whether in tents, or in strong holds;  20.  And what the land is, whether it be fat or lean, whether there be wood therein, or not. And be ye of good courage, and bring of the fruit of the land. Now the time was the time of the firstripe grapes.  21.  So they went up, and searched the land from the wilderness of Zin unto Rehob, as men come to Hamath.  22.  And they ascended by the south, and came unto Hebron; where Ahiman, Sheshai, and Talmai, the children of Anak, were. (Now Hebron was built seven years before Zoan in Egypt.)  23.  And they came unto the brook of Eshcol, and cut down from thence a branch with one cluster of grapes, and they bare it between two upon a staff; and they brought of the pomegranates, and of the figs.  24.  The place was called the brook Eshcol, because of the cluster of grapes which the children of Israel cut down from thence.  25.  And they returned from searching of the land after forty days.

Canaan – the Promised Land to Israel. Grace made all the provision that was theirs. All they had to do was go in and possess it. It’s always this way with God. His word is true, His promises are yea and amen. It’s the same for us today, Paul’s gospel is already given, the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. When He says it’s yours, it’s yours. All we have to do is enter in and dwell in it. Know His ways, it’s all by grace. Faith in His grace is the only thing that brings glory.

Ephesians 2:7  That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

There is no limit to the grace of God. We can have it if we will just step in. This is a ‘no brainer’ for the ages! Even after God provided for them and they saw all His miracles, the children of Israel murmured and walked around it for forty years. They were right there, and even though they were instructed to take it, out of all the millions, only two adults entered into the promise. Today, those believing bridal truth are rare. The time is now - believe. We need to step into this promise before it’s too late.

Numbers 13:20  Now the time was the time  of the firstripe grapes. 

The ark is getting ready to go. The first ripe grapes will be those of great courage in the grace of God.

II Corinthians 9:8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:

I’m redeemed, I’m not who I used to be, the old man is dead. God has prepared good works for us to walk in. The promise is so rich, it took two men to carry one cluster of grapes. This is the exceeding and eternal weight of glory. The half has not been told. We’ve got a better thing. We’ve got a Father that gave us everything. You get in there, and the more you see the more you will want to walk in it. Feast on Paul’s gospel more and more. The things of God, the Word, are forever. We have it all. Millions have heard the bridal message – what will you do with it? I want to be everything for Him!
