  • Anonymous for verse 10
    When God created the heavens and the earth and then he rested from his works for his works was made good and there was no sin place on earth however when man did sin due to unbelief of God's word and the belief of Satan's influence rest was no longer available but only death for the unbelieving ....for the children of Israel could not enter rest due to their unbelief when they defiled God with idolatry and other acts...now Jesus came along and did many works and through His work He took rest back from Satan and through Belief of this work for His works was made good we now can enter into rest.
  • Brighton manyeruke for verse 10
    As it is writen, its true that He was finish his job & he do rest to us & entenal lyf
  • If we really associate the calling of the rest, and attribute this only to the dire condition we face, then are we saying that God had the same condition when He created everything as this is referenced to the rest that God had on the seventh Day. Therefore my undestanding through the Holy Spirit is that God's comandment still stand, and it is through Jesus Christ that we will enter that rest, and also keeping His commandments as they are, and not attempt to change and make them suit our lifestiles.
  • Ben weaver for verse 10
    I see Wesley postpones the believer's rest till the future, whereas most translations place it in past tense i.e. BEFORE entering the available rest that God has now provided in Jesus . There are numerous new testament Bible references stating that we cannot save ourselves by trying to do merrit works. Romans 8:1-4. It was during their lifetime that Joshua's people did not enter rest because of unbelief, (vs. 5-9). We are told to make every effort to enter God's rest by trusting in Jesus now for salvation. Jesus said "Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest. It seems obvious,that to enter His rest here and now that we must cease trusting in our own merrit works.
