GOD’S REST

LISTEN TO AUDIO VERSION

Heb 4:3

For we who have believed enter that rest, just as He has said,

"As I swore in My wrath,

They shall not enter My rest,"

although His works were finished from the foundation of the world.

NASB

One of the major messages of Hebrews is that God has prepared unto us a rest; a rest from all troubles of life; a rest for the spirit, soul and body. This rest is exactly what we will enter into when our bodies have been redeemed so that our true nature as SONS of God can be revealed (see Rom 8:23). Then, we will truly see on this earth that a lion and a lamb will lie on the field... We will have total dominion over all things through Christ; there will be no resistance to our glory and we will even judge angels (see 1 Cor 6:3). This is the time when we will rule the kingdoms of the earth with Christ as the king who will rule from Jerusalem. He will give to some cities to rule and others smaller territories depending on their work now on earth. Jesus will judge everything; everyone and even people and systems that appear to have escaped judgment in this world will be judged.

This is the hope of our calling; that we are going to someday rule the universe with our lord in our God’s rest.

Even though all this is going to happen after the rapture of the saints which will give room to the glorification of our bodies, God in His kindness has not left us orphans in this current world. He has sent us the Holy Spirit who is the earnest of the inheritance we have in His kingdom; God has sent the Holy Ghost and He gives us the first fruits of these things that we expect. He gives us a foretaste of the glory to come; so you can begin to live in total dominion here in this earth and experience a portion of the power to come (see Heb 6:5), you can begin to walk in prosperity and dominion and power on the earth. The presence of these first fruits in your life will depend on the measure of the Holy Spirit you have in your life.

Go into today knowing that God has indeed called you into His rest and this rest begins right now.

Prayer: Dear heavenly father, I thank you for your word today. I pray that you help me constantly work in the light of your plan for me. Thank you dear lord for your Holy Spirit. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
