Hebrews 4: Saints will enter into Rest
Paul writes to the Hebrews and explains that “…the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.” (Hebrews 4:2) In other words, those who hear the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, but are not filled with faith will not hear the message with their spiritual ears and will ultimately reject its teaching. Paul explains that God created the world in six days, and on the seventh day He rested. Paul urges the Hebrew members of the Church to follow this counsel and rest in the Lord on the Sabbath.
Paul explains that the “…word of God is quick and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12) Because the word of God is SO POWERFUL, Paul invites all to come unto its power, that all can be touched and comforted from our infirmities.
