Hebrews 4:7-117 Again, He designates a certain day, saying in David, “Today,” after such a long time, as it has been said: “Today, if you will hear His voice, do not harden your hearts.” 8 For if Joshua had given them rest, then He would not afterward have spoken of another day. 9There remains therefore a rest for the people of God. 10For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His. 11 Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience.  THE PROMISE OF REST (PART 3)HEBREWS 4: 7-11  […]

Hebrews 4:2-62  For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as them; but the word which they heard did  not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard it. 3 For we who have believed do enter that rest, as He has said: so, I swore in My wrath, they shall not enter My rest, although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.  4 For He has spoken in a certain place of the seventh day in this way:  And God rested on the Seventh day from all His works. 5 And […]

Hebrews 3:16-19 16 For who, having heard, rebelled? Indeed, was it not all who came out of Egypt, led by Moses? 17Now with whom was He angry forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose corpses fell in the wilderness? 18 And to whom did He swear that they would not enter His rest, but to those who did not obey? 19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.

Hebrews 3: 12-15  12Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. 13 But exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. 14 For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end, 15 while it is said: “Today, if you will hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.” BE FAITHFUL (PART 3)HEBREWS 3: 12-15 Five paragraphs completing thoughts on verse 12 […]

Psalm 65:11 You crown the year with your goodness, and your paths drip with abundance THANKSGIVING AND PRAYER 2021 Next Thursday, I pray, our nation will celebrate Thanksgiving Day remembering God’s goodness to our ancestors, and in our day by establishing and maintaining this free land. Oh, that this would become true throughout the country. In our Psalm of Thanksgiving, we see it divides into two parts. We have crowning mercies that call for crowning gratitude and in the same verse, paths of abundance, which should be to us ways of delight. When we have thought upon these two points, […]
