JUST DA TRUTH – ABOUT HIS REST Part 3

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. Hebrews 4:1 King James Version

Rest is great.  His rest is greater.  God the Father wants us to enter into His Rest.  The best way to enter into this rest is to know that just as He rested from all His works, you can now rest from works as well because of the Grace Who is ours in the Person of Jesus. When Jesus was on the Cross and He cried, “It is finished!”, he meant it.  The days of trying to please God by doing this and doing that and not doing this and not touching that are over.  If you think that your works are going to get you points with God you are not in rest you are in works.  Your own works.  Rest means accepting totally and completely what Jesus did for you.  Lets pick up where we left off yesterday.

1So the creation of the heavens and the earth and everything in them was completed. 2O the seventh day God had finished His work of creation, so He rested from all His work. 3And God blessed the seventh day and declared it holy, because it was the day when He rested from all His work of creation. Genesis 2:1-3 New Living Translation

We see here that on the seventh day God the Father rested from all His work. If you are familiar with the Bible you will probably be familiar with this scripture.

But you must not forget this one thing, dear friends: A day is like a thousand years to the Lord, and a thousand years is like a day. 2 Peter 3:8 New Living Translation

When we understand this verse, it provides even greater revelation of how and why we are to enter into His Rest.  It has been approximately over six thousand years since Adam.  We are right at the cusp in the natural ‘time wise’ where we are butting right up against the seven thousandth year.  So if a day with the Lord is as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day, you can see that God blessed the seventh day and declared it holy because it was the day when He rested from all His work.  So based on our main text scripture, God is telling us to enter to His Rest now and to fear not doing so.  Why?  Because for the believer this is the seventh day.  But Jesus is not back yet?  How do we do this?  You do it by faith!!  You mix what the Father said with faith and say, “Father I enter into your Rest right here and right now!!!.”  I am there!! I am at rest.  The just shall live by faith not time!!!  Don’t ever forget that!!!  God the Father and Jesus are not bound by time and so neither are you.  When you come to Jesus by accepting Him as Lord and Saviour He has said He will give you rest.

Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28 New Living Translation

Is Jesus going to give you a different rest than The Father already said He would give.  Of course not.  Jesus is the way into His Rest.  If you study it out the true meaning of what Jesus said is, ‘If you come to me, I will rest you!.”  God is not bound by time.  He does not have to wait until a certain time of day or month or year comes.  He lives in eternity!  He is in 1800.  He is in 2016 and He is in 2026, or 2036 or 2300 RIGHT NOW.  On the Jewish calendar right now we are in the year 5776? Interesting isn’t it?   When you know that you are a son of God with full rights and benefits to Iive and function with the same power and authority as Jesus, you can live in the six thousandth year as if it was the seventh thousandth year and rest.  Why?  Because you have permission to do so from The Word and from God the Father Himself.  He is the One Who told you to do it and that is why you can do it.  Don’t doubt like the children of Israel when leaving Egypt for Canaan.  God brought them out and made them rich over night.  Yet you have so many preachers teaching people, “Its not going to happen overnight.”  It did for the children of Israel!!!  And we have a better covenant.  Again God is not bound by time, He overrides time.  Jesus did this constantly while He was here on Earth reducing 30 years of natural time into a moment to make the best wine for the wedding in John chapter 2.  He also healed Peter’s mother in law and reduced hours or days or weeks of recovery time into a moment where she is instantly healed and gets up and begins to serve guest.    Jesus promised if we BELIEVE on and in Him, that GREATER WORKS than these will we do because He goes to the Father.

That’s a lot to chew on, so we will end there.  Stay with us all week and take your stand and enter into His Rest today.

All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!

One thought on “JUST DA TRUTH – ABOUT HIS REST Part 3

  1. Holy, holy, holy!!!! This is great stuff – that is the ‘stuff’ the Universe and beyond is made of! The GOOD ”stuff”. I loved how you brought this home, Vincent. It’s something that was revealed to me years ago (about God being in eternity, and the eternal is in the NOW – the past present and future are all in the NOW – where God is), but I constantly need to be reminded of it. That’s what your post did for me today. It reminded me, encouraged me, and brought it home. I loved how you spelled it out that Jesus removed time when he healed – something that would have taken days took less than an instant, etc. Especially since something remarkable happened with the electricity today.

    Here’s the scoop… The electricity was off at my son’s and his dad’s house this morning when I got here. I don’t know how long it was off, though things in the frig were still very cold. The neighbor’s was off, too. I prayed about it, but then after a while (about an hour later) I spoke to the electricity and told it to ‘be’! You know what? There was a part of my mind trying to tell me that I better have the right motives, blah, blah,(my own works -right?) but I didn’t listen to it, because I knew God knew my heart. I pressed in anyway…within 15 seconds of me saying that I receive what I just said – the electricity came on!

    Thanks for the reminder today. I will definitely be meditating on this all day…and rereading the your last paragraph.

    Blessings for more revelations,
    Marianne
