Wesley's Notes for Hebrews 4:16


4:16 Let us therefore come boldly - Without any doubt or fear. Unto the throne of God, our reconciled Father, even his throne of grace - Grace erected it, and reigns there, and dispenses all blessings in a way of mere, unmerited favour.


People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 4:16


Heb 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly. Because our high priest can be touched by our infirmities. Unto the throne of grace. The Jewish high priest interceded before the mercy-seat. We may come boldly to the mercy-seat, knowing that our loving Elder Brother is our high priest in the heavens. Hence we may always have confidence when we ask for grace to help in time of need. The practical lesson of the chapter is that the True Rest promised remains. It was not the Sabbath day, nor was it Canaan. It is the heavenly rest of which these are types. Unbelieving disobedience excluded the Israelites from the typical rest of Canaan. So, too, it will exclude those who have started to enter into the heavenly rest if they refuse to hear Christ through unbelief. The believing Joshua and Caleb entered into Canaan. So, too, the true and faithful believers who follow Christ will enter into the rest above.

    To Mari - Holy Ghost evidenced by speaking in tongues - Book of Acts; You've got it RIGHT! Don't ever back down.
  • Hellfire street Preacher
    Jesus is our Sabbath. He is our Rest. To keep the Sabbath you have to enter into Christ and worship God everyday not 1 day a week. The news didnt get it.

    See the end of Romans 9
  • Jim
    We are told in this chapter that the one who has entered into God's rest has ceased from works (for salvation) as God ceased from His work on the 7th day. Religion will have you working yourself to death while really trusting and resting in Christ will yield peace and fruit of the Spirit. You will have good works because it won't be you. It will be the Spirit of God!
  • Alise
    V. 2 states that the word preached unto the people did not profit them because it was not mixed with faith. Action is required in order us to witness the miracles of God. Many say knowledge is power, however, APPLIED revelation is power (Pastor T). God requires us to live by faith and that requires us to apply what we're taught in the word, otherwise, we are only hearers of the word and not doers.
  • Louis Lancia
    The Rest in Heb is the 7000 thousandth Day the Reign of Christ on earth 1000 years.
    Not the 7th;day this is why it says there remaineth a day after the creation.

    I go w KJV bible.
    Read numbers 15 32-36 (0T). Then Exo 16:25 (OT.) Now how do we re!ate 0T to NT? Bible teaches Sabbaths were a shadow of things to come. NT Matt 12:1. Also Col 2:16. Jeremiah 31:31-33 GI es some indication. " I wil make a new covenant. I will put my laws inside of them". Isa 28: 11-12 is talking about the Ho!y Ghost w speaking in tongues. Acts 2:1. Jesus is our rest 7 days
