know Rest . . .

Hebrews 4:1 “Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.”

Hebrews 4:14–16 “Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”


Come quickly into His Presence — know that there is a Sabbath Rest for you, from the work of your hands — from the work of an overzealous mind — from the work of our hearts, that reaches the lost and hurting. We are a people filled with His Presence, in which Hope is offered in season and out of season. That Hope which is in God, is God and lives within us.

We are vessels, that carry the Presence of the Living God — that which we have captured with our hearts by confessing He is Lord and is the Son of the Living God. Know the Truth, and of course the Truth will set you Free. But there is more, that in our walk — in our lives, which become difficult at times — there is this place of Rest where God receives us, for the specific purpose of restoring us to fullness.

We have access, freely. Run to Him, that God who distributes Faith generously and holds nothing Good back from His sons and daughters. Let Glory erupt from the depths of your soul in the midst of Praise — in doing so, we receive a payment of Love, that broke the back of the enemy at the Cross. It is a bank that never runs dry, always like an overflowing fountain — pouring out on those who draw near.

Cling to Him, that is Higher.

Know Rest.
