Labor Unto Rest (Hebrews 4:1-11)

Minister Adande Williams, May 24, 2015

Don't Give Up
Psalms 95:1-11
Hebrews 4:1-11

Moses was leading the children of Israel out of bondage and they started to murmur and to complain. God said that they would not see the promise land, because they stopped trusting in God and His promise.

Sufferings can and will come.

God doesn't like sin, can't look at sin so He sent His son in the flesh, as an example that Christ understands what we experience in the flesh. Jesus wanted to know what it was like to be in the flesh, overcome the flesh and please God.

Succour means help.

There is a time to work and a time to rest. But we want to rest when it time for us to be working. If we don't want to be used by God when will the work be done? Perilous times are here. Don't stop working. If you decide to quit now where is your faith? Jesus knows that suffering is temporary. He knew that after the beating and the scourging He was going to rise again.

What ever you experience is not a time to rest. Continue to run. Don't rest, push thru. You can't stop in your race. Keep believing in God, you are more than a conqueror.

Hebrews 4:11
Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

Hebrews 4:1-11

1Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. 2For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it. 3For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world. 4For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works. 5And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest. 6Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief: 7Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts. 8For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day. 9There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. 10For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. 11Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief. (KJV)
