Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types
Genesis 17:8 (c) This describes this country and compares it to the life of victory which should be the portion of every believer. In Canaan, the Lord gave rich possessions and fought all their battles for them. Many Christians stop at Jabesh-Gilead and never cross over Jordan to the land of grapes, figs, olives and victory. Canaan is called in several Scriptures the land that floweth with milk and honey. It probably represents typically the victorious life of the happy, radiant, conquering Christian. This person lives in constant fellowship with the living GOD and Father, has conscious communion with CHRIST JESUS, and receives daily blessings from the Holy Spirit. He has crossed over Jordan out of the desert into the life more abundant, the life that is life indeed.
