    In Hebrew is telling us to stand firm and have faith in God Almighty the finisher, Alpha and Omega.

    a very humbling chapter of the bible, this should be our aim to enter that rest...and to remember that there are those who will not enter in.

    Growing-up, people were believers in God. We love the The Word of God. We read it: Home: School: Sunday School: House of God: It was our Soiritual Food. We say our Grace before Meals: home: School: wherever. We say Thanks after each meal. Thank God Our Provider. It just came Natural. We believe every Word that Procedeth out-of-the Mouth-of-God. We studied: Memorized: Visualized:Gods Precious Words

    True, very few reside in the "rest" that Paul speaks of. But there were some as Moses, Joshua, and Caleb who were found worthy to cross over Jordan into the promised land. As for Christians, very few as well since the 12 disciples. Paul was fervant as a Jew and fervant as a Christian. But faith ain't free, nor easy to sustain. God is the Judge, as well as Jesus when he walked in perfect faith
