For thus saith the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength…. Isaiah 30:15 KJV

Rest. We all need it, more than we even know.  But I am not just talking about sleep.  I am talking about real rest.  Rest where you no longer worry, about your health, your children, your finances or other areas of life that people naturally worry and stress about.  This scripture was talking about the children of Israel who had instead of looking and going to God for help they had went down to Egypt for help.  Now if you remember just a number of years ago, God had delivered Israel out of Egypt where they were kept in bondage and slavery.  Now the people that they had been in bondage to, they were going back to and asking  and expecting help from them.

That walk to go down into Egypt, and have not asked at My mouth; to strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh, and to trust in the shadow of Egypt!  Isaiah 30:2-3 KJV

God the Father does not want us trusting in things that He has paid a dear price to deliver us out of and from.  He wants our trust to be in Him and the finished work of Jesus.  Jesus has already provided for your healing.  It’s not that you do not go to the doctor or take their advice, He simply does not want your faith, hope and trust in them.  Why?  Because He does not want you to take their MAYBE over HIS SURELY!!!

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.  Psalm 23:6 KJV

Now if you look up the word surely in the original Hebrew you will find out that it says ONLY goodness and mercy shall follow you.  You may go to the doctor and ask, “What will happen when I take this drug?”  He may say, “Hopefully, it’ll clear things up but be sure to take it with milk otherwise get a few books because you will be in the bathroom all night,”  Take a look at the Young’s Literal Translation.

Only — goodness and kindness pursue me, All the days of my life, And my dwelling is in the house of Jehovah, For a length of days! Psalms 23:6

When you know your healing or your breakthrough is SURE, you can REST!  The same thing works with your salvation.  If you have to worry everyday, “Am I alright with The  Father? Is He mad at me?  Is he still in disbelief that I am still having a challenge not overeating?”  That is bondage!!!  The Father is not like that especially in the New Testament.


God the Father has forgiven and forgotten your sins because He already punished Jesus for every sin you have ever and will ever commit.  God does not lie!! If he says He will not remember your sins and lawless deed anymore then He can’t by an act of His Will.  Since He doesn’t remember them then neither should you.  YOU SHOULD REST!!!  Jesus wants you to rest too.  Look at what Jesus said.

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Matthew 11:28 KJV

For an even better understanding look at the Kenneth Wuest Translation which is a direct translation of the greek text.

Come here to me, all who are growing weary to the point of exhaustion, and who have been loaded with burdens and are bending beneath their weight, and I alone will cause you to cease from your labor and take away your burdens and thus refresh you with rest. Take at once my yoke upon you and learn from me, because I am meek and lowly in heart, and you will find cessation from labor and refreshment for your souls,  

Matthew 11:28 Kenneth Wuest Translation

Notice in that translation Jesus said, I ALONE. Jesus wants to be the ONLY ONE resting you.  Jesus does not want the world resting you, or alcohol or weed or sex or whatever else.  He knows that is a temporary fix while His is a permanent REST.  Which will you choose?

All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!


….As for you, if you remain in the word which is Mine, truly, My disciples you are. And you shall know the Truth in an experiential way, and the truth shall make you free. John 8:31 -32 Kenneth Wuest Translation

We talked about the truth being Jesus so now lets talk about REST.  The Holy Spirit said something to me a few days ago as I was meditating about the Truth.  He said, “The more Truth you have the more rest you have.”  Think about this.  If you suddenly had a bill that had to be paid in the natural for $25,000 otherwise the consequences would be dire most people would be concerned.  But if you were Ivanka Trump and your father were Donald Trump would you really be concerned or lets say would Ivanka be concerned? No!  Why?  She knows the truth!!!  She knows her Daddy is a billionaire and that he is not going to allow anything to happen to her and that he will do everything in his power to keep his daughter safe, healthy and happy.  She would probably just go on with her day having lunch with her friends or a meeting.  Now Donald Trump is a man.  How much more should you have this confidence in your Heavenly Father and The Lord Jesus Christ that He will take care of you?   When you know He will you will rest.  Yes you will do what you need to and can do but you will rest and say, “Thank you Poppa!! Thank you Lord Jesus you’ve already taken care of it.”  This is what Jesus has instructed you to do.

Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. I Peter 5:7 KJV

Now lets go back to the Trump scenario.   Ivanka’s Dad would more than likely do the same thing Jesus just told you to do.  He would say to his daughter, “Don’t worry about it baby I will take care of it.”  Now she has known her Dad all of her life and I am sure she has had him take care of many things for her before so she KNOWS HIM.  She knows he’s not lying to her.  She knows his character.  Someone else may call her father a liar, or a cheat or a scam artist but she does not care.  SHE KNOWS THE TRUTH about him.  That truth allows her to rest!!!  The same should be true about you.  You should know your Father and Jesus through His Word.  You should know exactly what He is going to do.  You may now know how but you know He will and you should know HE HAS taken care of it.  Unlike a human father Poppa does not have to wait for a situation to arise to address it, prepare and provide for it. He is The Ancient of Days.  He declared the end or final reality of your situation before the beginning so it was handled a long, long time ago.  When you believe or exercise faith in the final reality that He declared then that is what manifest.  When you exercise faith in something else, barring His Grace you can put the results up in the air because you have authority and say in the situation because God is not a dictator.  Know The Truth! Get in The Word!  and REST!!!

All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!


….As for you, if you remain in the word which is Mine, truly, My disciples you are. And you shall know the Truth in an experiential way, and the truth shall make you free.  John 8:31 -32 Kenneth Wuest Translation

TRUTH!! The final reality!  Not the final frontier but thee final reality. Many people including some believers do not know how powerful the truth really is even though Jesus has just given the answer in the above scripture.   Yes they have read it and quoted it and confessed it. They heard many sermons on it but what you have to realize and know is Salvation is personal.  Not only is Salvation personal but Salvation is a Person. And Who might that person be? None other than our very own Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.  Jesus’s Name, Yeshua in Hebrew means Yahweh Saves.   That is salvation.  So His very name means Salvation but not just from hell but from sickness, disease, debt and lack and any other form of unrighteousness.  “Well when is Jesus gonna do it because I sho’ need it!!”  It is finished!!! He already did it  a long, long time ago. The question is have you received it as The Truth, as Your Truth, Your Final Reality?

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. John 14:6 NIV

Knowing the Truth(JESUS) is key to you being able to rest.  And when I say this I mean naturally and spiritually resting.  Let me show you what I mean.  You take two believers both are saved, both of them are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.  Both are going to Heaven.  Let’s say both of them have children.  You take them both and give them a bad medical report about one of their children.  You follow both believers to their home. One is flipping out and devastated by the report and the other is doing the same thing they always did before the report came up.  What’s the difference? One KNOWS The Truth and the other knows of The Truth.  The believer that is at rest is at rest for a very simple reason.  They were at rest when everything was fine.  They know that a report does not change The Word of God.  The word truth in the New Testament is the greek word aleithia and it means final reality.  Final reality is when you strip off all the makeup, all the shaper shirts and Spanx and everything else and what you have is the naked unadulterated Word which lives and abides forever Who is JESUS!!!!  Knowing the Truth is simply knowing JESUS!! Jesus IS The Word!!

Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth. John 17:17

When Jesus prayed this to the Father He knew He was talking about Himself and The Word later confirms this.

It is because of Him that you are in Christ Jesus, Who has been become for us wisdom from God: our righteousness, holiness(or sanctification)  and redemption. I Corinthians 1:30 Berean Study Bible

Jesus is our sanctification. Without Him we are not sanctified.  He sanctified us through and with His Blood.

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. I John 1:7  NIV

So again what does this have to do with rest?  When a person knows that Jesus has purified them from ALL sin,  they know that any sickness is a lying symptom because sickness comes as a result of sin. I am not and did not say that you are sick because you sinned if you are a believer. I said it was a lying symptom that the enemy has tried to put on  you illegally to see if you will take it.  Its not legal to break into people’s homes but people still do it.  Well they learned that from the devil.  He knows legally and truthfully he has no rights to touch a believer and he can’t.  He has to plant the thought in their mind which is a lie then get them to say it and believe it. (Remember Jesus said TAKE NO THOUGHT SAYING?)  If he gets them to take the thought then they manifest the thing with their own faith power.  Did you know the word symptom comes from the Greek word sumptoma which means chance?  The devil says I am going to float this symptom by them and maybe per chance they will accept it. Then the symptom comes and that person thinks, “I think I’m catching the flu“.  Then someone hears them cough and ask if they are alright and they SAY, “I think I’m catching the flu.” Now they have taken the thought and said it. Whosoever shall say to this mountain or say to this disease, “I think I’m catching you!!” And the disease answers back, “I’m so glad you caught me, I thought I was gonna have to move on to another person but you caught me.”  I tell you what, a symptom may try to come but I aint “catching it” no more than I would reach out to catch a rattlesnake if someone threw it at me.  When you know the Truth:Jesus you can rest and He will even teach you how to talk because He was the only One that should have been catching disease at all because He took on purpose all our diseases, sins and pains on the Cross SO YOU WOULD NOT HAVE TO TAKE THEM TOO!!! Now think about that Truth then REST in your healing!

All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!!!
