Day 40 of the Fruit Feast. 40 is a significant Bible number. It signifies a time of testing and spiritual contemplation. A time of trusting in the strength of the God of Heaven. Christ fasted 40 days and was tempted of satan. Moses communed with Christ for 40 days on Mt Sinai (twice). Elijah did as well. The children of Israel were in the wilderness for 40 years as the Bible says "to prove them" (Deut 8:2). Christ stayed with the disciples for 40 days following His resurrection. So to me, this is a milestone of sorts. Its not alot of time in terms of life, but i am thankful to get to this point by Grace thru Faith. 40 months would be a great milestone, that would be nearly 4 years. 40 years would be something, but i believe way before then i (if faithful) will be sharing of the fruit of the Tree of Life in the New Jerusalem with all the saints. What a Fruit Feast that will be!
