The Sabbath is a mine where the Spirit’s precious metal can be found with which to construct the palace in time, a dimension in which the human is at home with the divine.
Have you ever thought about the restoration of all things? “All things” include the dimension of time. Hebrews 4 tells us that there’s a promise left to us. That promise is entering into His rest. I love how Hebrews 4:9-10 puts it: “There remains therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into His rest, he also has ceased from his own works.” If we aim at Endless Love, the way of trust and truth in yieldedness will result in our ceasing from our own works.
There are many glorious facets to be mined about God’s rest, but one of the most fundamental is mentioned in Hebrews 4:4 “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.” Just a thought for those Bridal & Melchizedek hearts out there. For those pressing into His grace and setting out to be holy, as He is holy:
“And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.” (Gen 2:2-3 NKJV).
“ ‘And you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’ These are the words which you shall speak to the children of Israel.” (Exodus 19:6).
“’AND A STONE OF STUMBLING AND A ROCK OF OFFENSE.’ They stumble, being disobedient to the word, to which they also were appointed. But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light” (1 Peter 2:8-9 NKJV).
“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.” (Exodus 20:8 NKJV)
