<-- Back to Hebrews chapter 4

 


Servant of God's comment on 12/06/2017, 7:47am...

A seminal chapter from Paul, who immediately distinguishes us and them, unbelievers according to Paul and us, who are saved by belief. For God spoke thru Moses of Rest ig the seventh day. Also in Exodus entering the land if Milk and Honey, which is a similar metaphor. That rest is not watching tv from an easy chair, but somehow finding favor with God due to and unwavering belief and in God

WE seam to miss what we are being taught in chapter 3 and 4 Do you obsearve the sabbath day or is this just another day? We must rest and it is a holy day unto GOD it looks like we take it as unbelief, also as he speaks to us we do not observe it because of our unbelive

A disciple's comment on 3/08/2017, 11:25am...

"Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: and ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel." Exodus 19:5-6 The direct application of this great word, has to do with maintaining a good conscience, and a tender heart, and of faith that toils on and endures the trials and temptations common to this life, TO NOT SIN! Taken in context of the whole chapter it is for NOT hardening of the heart, but walking, and taking a course in life with a true heart and a good conscience, without growing weary and murmuring and giving up, because of the difficulty of the way as is the opening sentence and subject summary: "Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it." Now many take this word for comfort and support, for when they fall short and even use it for a crutch to excuse and "cover" their habit of sinning and failure but I think an honest evaluation of one's self will expose this hypocrisy and deceit. And taken in view of the actual context of the teaching it is precisely FOR those who would be true and faithful to walk worthy of the Lord in holiness, AND NOT SIN taking as our example, and our Mediator of God's grace the Lord Jesus Himself. In short read the whole chapter, and understand the word in context to the teaching: this is NOT exactly the same as what John taught, about "if any man sin, we have an Advocate with the Father:" although He is there for us, and has compassion on our frailties and uncapabilites this particular aspect of Jesus' Office at the Father's right hand, is for our Maintaining our ways in truth and holiness as opposed to coming back to Him for forgiveness and reconciliation, as John talks about. We are commanded to walk so it should be understood then, that God expects it of us. With the point of what the LORD said "...then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: and ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation:" we should better understand just how the LORD looks at us, and what His designs for us are: that we being the obedient children and people of Covenant with God men might reliably see in us, and come to hear us, regarding the word of God and of salvation in Jesus' name even as we bear His name before the world, to be His representatives, signs, and wonders, to instruct all unto Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour.

Thank you God, for all your blessings!

Meditating God's words day and night all the desire of thine heart will be added. If we delight ourselves to Jesus first we will find his peace and love . Let us therfore come boldly into the throne of grace so that we may obtain mercy and find the grace to help in time of need. Thank you Jesus for your word praise you Jesus all the time amen

 


Rondalyn Brindley Jones's comment on 2/05/2017, 10:34am...

Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin..therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need

James's comment on 1/18/2017, 10:16pm...

Thy word have I hidden in my heart that I might not sin against God! Hidden does not mean it's
not carried and told on the outside,whereas people can not tell whether you are living a lie because the word
is not exemplified as to how you live!

 


Gregory ledgister's comment on 1/18/2017, 8:02pm...

I love the word of God

 


BSP's comment on 1/18/2017, 6:11am...

This verse shows that the Bible can have a very powerful effect on one's life. It can show the person who they really are in God's eyes and help them to make needed changes in order to please God more fully. We should read the Bible daily.

Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation and every city or House divided against itself shall not stand:

 


Mike M.'s comment on 1/13/2017, 6:30am...

Come onto me and I will give you rest.
Jesus Christ is our rest. Amen

 


Lilian's comment on 1/13/2017, 3:41am...

God reminded us even we are busy to our daily life we must spend and dedicate our time to God and meditate God's words everyday then all the desire of thine heart will be added if we put God first into our life. God will take care of everything for his burden is light and thy yoke is easy. Only thru Jesus we can get Freedom abd Favor we just need to Praise him and trust his Will Amen

 


Bro. Davis's comment on 1/07/2017, 9:51am...

The Sabbath was the 7th day or last day in the week in which God created all things and rested on that day. It started before any Law was given or any commandment was given to Gods people. It was not a Ceremonial or moral Law, but a sanctified day of the Lord from the very beginning of the worlds existence. Taking rest in Jesus or resting in Jesus has nothing to do with the Sabbath day's rest.

 


Felicia's comment on 1/01/2017, 5:26pm...

Yes the Sabbath is part of the 10 com'ds but the problem is that ever since Adam no man has been able to keep God's Law. Jesus is the only perfect man who could keep the Law of God and so when we receive Jesus the law is fulfilled in us. We must take God's promise and believe that Jesus is our rest. We can be in the presence of God at any time anywhere individually or collectively Jesus has made..

 


Jeanie's comment on 12/20/2016, 3:56am...

The Sabbath is within the 10 Commandments. Its a package deal. Its not a shadowy thing...does not foretell something is coming / going to happen.Not ceremonial. Written by God's own fingers and given through Moses to the children of Israel. Instituted before sin came to this world b4 Jews. The ordinaces /sacrificial system was ceremonial...given by God and written by Moses. Given after sin came.

 


Irene123's comment on 11/15/2016, 12:45am...

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's comment on 11/12/2016, 5:54pm...

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's comment on 10/31/2016, 1:52am...

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's comment on 10/10/2016, 1:16pm...

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's comment on 10/09/2016, 3:45am...

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.

 


Mari's comment on 10/03/2016, 8:12am...

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
