Discussion for Hebrews 4

  • 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.

    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

    ***Mari, The seventh day is Sabbath. You will find no where in the bible of a change to Sunday. This is a huge lie created to deceive. Tha Sabbath is of great importance. Tradition is now on Sunday. Read about tradition and the changing of time and laws in the bible. Hebrews 4:8 is the ultimate proof. Sabbath created at the foundation of the world. Gods remnant few won't bow to tradition.
  • Mari
    Isnt CH 4 talking about the holy ghost? This is our rest in him. We do not worship on Saturday. Throughout the bible it explains things. Jesus is our rest if we have his spirit dwelling in us. We worship him every day.

    Ambrose Okech... Read chapter 3 as well. The verse 8 speaks of Jesus. The modern bibles wish this to be hidden because it clearly says he did not change the day when he came. The error originates from the footnotes of the Geneva bible. The foundation of the world is Creation. Please read the Kjv version. All others have removed important things, adding to. The Sabbath is MOST IMPORTANT! See Exodus
