When Christ “appears a second time for salvation, it will be without reference to sin” (Heb 9:28) … because the more excellent work of the blood of Christ has dealt with the sin issue once and for all, for ever! Did you ever wonder why it took the Israelites so long to leave the wilderness? —40 years? Didn’t God lead them out of bondage, part the Red Sea, provide water and manna! Why not believe Him for the Promised Land too? There were two primary reasons. They are usually the same reasons we wander in the wilderness today.
