Funny that you mention the land of Canaan.God does not change.If He was grieved at the unbelief of the Israelites and refused them admittance to canaan in consequence,He cannot permit us to enter the heavenly rest as long as we indulge in unbelief.
When the Israelites left Egypt and crossed, lol, the sea of Reeds, their destination was Canaan.
The land of Canaan was under Egyptian jurisdiction at that time.
My question is:
Why would the Hebrew god lead his people out of Egypt and place them square into Egypt again?
