The act of going to Canaan by the Israelites was less important to God than their coming to God himself. That is why many of those who refused to believe him on other instructions not directly related to going to Canaan perished in the wilderness, although they still wanted to go to Canaan. He didn’t even say to them they will not enter Canaan. He said, they’ll not enter my rest, not Canaan! Why? Because, Christ says, “Come unto me you who are weary (of Egypt) and I will give you rest”, not Canaan. So the rest of God for you is located wherever God is located for you at that particular time, whether Canaan or Egypt, or Shushan the palace, wherever.
You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and BROUGHT YOU TO MYSELF. Exodus 19:4
Likewise, today – even today – you going to your favorite church is less important to God than your coming to Him as a divine being. It is more important for you to spiritually come to Him, than for you to attend church gatherings seven times per week without coming to Him. A church is meeting is only important if it is designed and intended to bring you to God!

Because if God (who we access through Christ today) is not present in the church meeting, in your magnificent church building, and even as also in Canaan, what only remains therefore in those venues and locations are idols and idolaters including yourself.

God brought Israelites to HIMSELF first, then going to Canaan became meaningful afterwards only because God was going there, represented by Moses as a human father carrying God’s grace for the Exodus, plus His ark of the covenant, and His pillar of cloud and fire. Otherwise the whole Exodus would have been pointless if it was just for Israelites to inherit a troublesome piece of land surrounded by many enemies for that matter.

You might so far have come to Church, or to see and hear a nicely dressed preacher, but now I say, COME TO GOD HIMSELF! Then you will be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people, a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation as God said:

Exo 19:4 … I bare you on eagles' wings, AND BROUGHT YOU UNTO MYSELF.
Exo 19:5 Now therefore, if ye (have come unto myself and) will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine...
Exo 19:6 And (if ye (have come unto myself) ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation.

May the Almighty God bring you to Himself, and may He deliver you from merely coming to churches, preachers, and buildings without coming to God. That dilemma is the cause of much emptiness and spiritual hollowness among millions, a cause of many intra-church and inter-church troubles, and more religious strife and wars worldwide, even as we see in the wilderness. No one can satisfy you like God, and only God!
