The Land of Egypt Versus the Land of Canaan

Do you get the impression that the Land of Canaan, now known as Israel, is not the same as it was during the time Israel the nation first entered the land? Listen to this, “For the land which you go to possess is not like the land of Egypt from which you have come, where you sowed your seed and watered it by foot, as a vegetable garden; but the land which you cross over to possess is a land of hills and valleys, which drinks water from the rain of heaven, a land for which the LORD your God cares; the eyes of the LORD your God are always on it, from the beginning of the year to the very end of the year” (Deuteronomy 11:10-12).
Egypt was and is desert-like, but Moses told Israel that the Land of Canaan was a place where it rained often. The pictures I see of the land today do not look like that.
So much sin has taken place in that land before Israel arrived and then during Israel’s time in the land that the earth there no longer favors humanity as it once did.
The Earth reacts to the presence of man. If man blesses its Creator, the Earth responds favorably, but if man curses its Creator, the Earth does not respond favorably.
Let us bless and obey God that He might bless us through the Earth.
