ENTERING THE REST OF GOD
“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30)
Are you too busy? Have too much going on? Are things piling up…not being able to keep up? Are you feeling overwhelmed, stressed out…pressured? Feel like you’re on a racetrack and the weeks are flying by?
2019 – THE GLORIOUS CHURCH
THE END DAYS GENERATION
“At that time Michael shall stand up,
The great prince who stands watch over the sons of your people;
And there shall be a time of trouble,
Such as never was since there was a nation,
Even to that time.
And at that time your people shall be delivered,
Every one who is found written in the book.
"And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake,
Some to everlasting life,
Some to shame and everlasting contempt.
Those who are wise shall shine
Like the brightness of the firmament,
And those who turn many to righteousness
Like the stars forever and ever.”
“But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.” (Daniel 12:1-4)
Many shall run to and fro… Knowledge shall increase…
So, here we are dear Saints, sent by God to live in this last generation before The Church is removed and the Great Tribulation begins. Each of us has an important assignment to proclaim: the message of salvation and the Kingdom of God!
Just think, thousands of years ago the Holy Prophets foretold of our generation. What a privilege to be called to live at this time in earth’s history!
(See 1 Peter 2:9-10)
The Days are flying by…
I believe time is accelerating and will continue to be shortened until Jesus’ return. I take what Jesus said in Matthew 24:22 literally; “And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.”
Living Waters of Quietness
Live your life out of your spirit man. The “unrenewed” soul, (mind, will, and emotions) struggles under stress and pressure. This can lead to the carnal nature taking over with anger, impatience, and complaining.
To flow in the fruit of the spirit: love, joy, peace, kindness, goodness, longsuffering, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control, you will have to make important decisions for quiet time.
Spend time in scripture and prayer and stay connected to His Presence throughout your day. This is how you live from your spirit, where Holy Spirit resides. Practice the Presence of Jesus ... even in a crazy world!
All who labor and are heavy laden…
Come to Jesus. He is The Word, and you will receive rest (relief and refreshing) for your soul as you study.
Take My yoke and learn from Me. Submit to Jesus and let Him carry the burdens. You will find peace and rest and quietness of soul. “Cast all your cares upon Him…” (1 Peter 5:7)
My yoke is easy, (good, kind, and profitable) and My burden is light. His burden is the commandment of love. “And His commandments are not grievous.” (1 John 5:3)
This is that…which brings rest.
“He has told you, O man, what is good; And what does the LORD require of you, But to do justice, to love kindness, And to walk humbly with your God?”
Confess this often:
I refuse pressure and stress.
I choose instead to enter His rest.
(See Hebrews 3:18-19)
