And to whom did God swear that they would never enter His rest if not to those who disobeyed? So we see that they were not able to enter, because of their unbelief. Hebrews 3:18-19
REST---FREEDOM from worry, trouble, pain, etc. Peace of mind. (Webster’s Dictionary)
The Author of the Book of Hebrews, gives a warning to those who are DISOBEDIENT, and live their lives in the UNBELIEF of God or ANYTHING connected to Him. They live in DENIAL of the FACT that they will leave this earth, CONDEMNED, and SENTENCED to an ETERNITY in Hell, the place of UNENDING, torment, torture, pain, heartache, agony and despair, with NO WAY of ESCAPE. They will NEVER be able to ENTER God’s ETERNAL REST, until they come to Him BELIEVING in Him and His Only Begotten Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, who GAVE His life in order to GIVE life to those who are LOST and LIVING in SIN.
They MUST be OBEDIENT to God’s WORD, and FOLLOW His PRECEPTS. The ONLY WAY they can ENTER His ETERNAL REST is to TURN AWAY from their acts of DISOBEDIENCE and UNBELIEF, and to come to Him with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. DO NOT HARDEN your HEARTS against God! Come to Him, CONFESSING your sins to Him, asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, the ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and ENTER His ETERNAL REST. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
