Welcome to our 37th ‘Inward Jew Coffee/Juice Break Chat!’
Our previous Chat was on the topic: “The Inward Journey into the Promised Rest in Christ Jesus, by Faith!’ GUY #3:10:25 —By Pastor: Elder Wilfred A. Wilson
Today’s topic is:
The significance of the Seventh Day Rest, and why the Inward Jew Nation of God embraces the New Testament Rest in Christ. GUY #3:10:27 —By Pastor: Elder Wilfred A. Wilson
The significance of Yahweh’s Rest
According to the scripture, it is abundantly clear that Yahweh our heavenly Father, in His infinite wisdom, saw it fit to end His work at Creation on the seventh day; and to rest in it.
The significance of Rest on the seventh day is, that it is originated in Yahweh our heavenly Father and creator of heaven and earth. And when Yahweh rested in the seventh day, all creation in heaven and earth rested too, as one integral part of His Universal Seventh Day Rest Cycle.
Interesting, and happily, Yahweh changed neither His Six Days Work Week cycle, nor His Seventh Day Rest Cycle to this date: instead man did. As It is written, “I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.” [Malachi 3:6]
Beloved, it is therefore mandatory that Yahweh’s creation identify with His Rest at creation with the understanding of its bigger picture, which is, that it points to His Future Eternal Rest for us all in His Kingdom throughout eternity, but until then conditions are applied.
- That one’s salvation or redemption is necessary, because it serves as a passport to enter into the eternal kingdom of Yahweh and His Eternal Sabbath Rest in glory.
- One’s salvation is by faith through the precious blood of Christ the Son of Yahweh, who died for the sins of the world. And that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life. [1 Peter 1:18-19]; John 3:16-17]
- Man must within his lifetime bring his body, soul and spirit back in line with the Infallible Word of God, and establish a right relationship with the heavenly Father through Christ His Son.
Apart from the Eternal Rest (Sabbath) in the future Eternal Kingdom, there is this rest in Christ which He has extended to individuals, all peoples and to all nations. It is written, “Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest…” [Matthew 11:28-30, Hebrews 10:16-18]
It is important that all who believe should seek and enter the above mentioned Rest in Christ, by faith which is under the New Testament and the New Covenant. [Matthew 11:28-30, Hebrews 10:16-18]
Three ways the term ‘Sabbath’ or ‘Rest’ is used in this post
Beloved, let’s dive deeper in order to understand how Yahweh’s Rest at Creation relates to that of the indwelling Christ, who has been offering His Eternal Rest to man. Please turn your Bible with me to Genesis 2:2 which reads, “And on the seventh day Yahweh ended His work which He had made; and He rested on the seventh day from all His works.”
Beloved, concerning the term ‘Rest’ which Christ is offering everyone, [Matthew 11: 28-30], it is twofold in meaning:
- “Come unto me … and I will give you rest.” ‘Rest’ in this line means a literal rest, or peace, relaxation or repose.
- “Learn of me …, and you will find “rest” for your souls. “Rest” in this line means recreation during a period of intermission. And it is a benefit for the individual who takes Christ’s yoke upon himself, for it is not heavy and neither is Christ’s burden: in comparison to the yoke and the burden of the world which are heavy and which are without rest or relaxation. [Matthew 11:28-30]
- The third form of the term ‘Sabbath’ is used to mean cessation. For example, cessation from our own dead works, sinful works, which are influenced by our personal fallen nature within us. It is Christ, who works on the inside and separates us from the inner world of sin, and sets us apart unto God our heavenly Father, to serve Him, instead. [Hebrews 4: 10]
It is a fact that ungodly desires of the flesh are influenced by the Adamic or fallen nature in man. And that according to the scriptures, Believers are commanded to mortify the deeds of the flesh as described in [Galatians 5: 16- 21; Colossians 3:5-9] in order to overcome or conquer them (our wicked deeds) by faith, in Jesus’s name: and move on to higher levels with our spiritual life through Christ His Son.
Thus the degenerated seeker whose desire is to pursue the higher and deeper life in Christ, must first crucify the ‘Old Man,’ or the Fallen or the Adamic Nature within him/her progressively. And here is where the importance of and need for the Word comes in, in order to shed light on “baptism into Jesus Christ.” This is so because “baptism into Jesus Christ is “baptism into His death,” which is a key ordinance and requirement in the process of one’s personal crucifixion of his/her fallen. Perhaps you may want to know how to do this by faith, and the answer is in the following text of scripture. It is written:
“Know ye not that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with Him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also shall walk in the newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of His death, we shall be also in the likeness of His resurrection: knowing this that our old man is crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin.
Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also lie with Him. Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more power over Him. For in that He died He died unto sin once; but in that He liveth he liveth unto God. Likewise recon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye shall obey it the lust thereof. Neither yield ye your members as instrument of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. For sin shall not have dominion over you; for ye are not under the law but under grace.” [Romans 6:14]
Now having crucified the old man by faith through baptism into Jesus Christ, [Romans 6: 3-4] the Seeker of truth has to yield to the Word and the Spirit, and be obedient to their leading, even as He reads and study his Bible, and pray about that particular sin that the Holy Spirit convicted him/her of, and he/she wants to overcome. So, the Seeker of truth prays and exercise his/her faith for deliverance from, say, a particular sin, the indwelling Christ working on the inside of the Seeker will do His part and will miraculously separate the Seeker from that particular sin, so that he ceases from it, or experience a ‘sabbath’ or ‘cessation,’ in the sense that he/she gets a ‘rest’ from that particular vice. For example: say, the habit of gossiping and envying others, or whatever; and it is important to know how to experience a sabbath from this particular vice?
What the scriptures say about the vice of gossiping and envying: and how to receive a sabbath or rest from it, or how to overcome it.
Now, Please turn your Bible to James Chapter 3, let’s read from verses 6-18: and let us allow the Word and the Holy Spirit minister to us. It reads:
“And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defiled the whole body, and setteth on fire the course f nature; and it is set on fire of hell. For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of thigs in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed by mankind: but the tongue can no man tame, it is an unruly evil, full of deadly posion. Therewith bless we God, even the Father; (a single God, who is the Father, period.) and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing.
My brethren, these things ought not so to be. Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet waterand bitter? Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? So can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh. Who is a wise man and endured with knowledge among you? Let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
The paragraph below describes the earthly wisdom
But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descended not from above, but it is earthly, sensual, devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
Know the wisdom that is from our heavenly Father, above
But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceful, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good works, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.”
My thoughts and encouragement
Bitter envying and strive is earthly, carnal and devilish, but it can be overcome by faith by anyone, who believes from the heart the infallible Word, and repent…. Further, he/she must receive Christ as their personal Savior and Lord, by faith: and in so doing come under the blood of Christ and renounce the devilish spirit from their life, and bind it by faith in Jesus’ name.
Work on all devilish attitudes …..One must continue in the faith and be obedient to the Word and the Spirit after he/she has been liberated by the power of Christ.
Let’s remember that, “one’s attitude: determines one’s altitude.”
Yahweh our gracious heavenly Father has given every one a mind of his own, this means that everyone has a free will, and the power to reason and to choose. So of the two altitudes mentioned: ‘earthly wisdom’ and ‘wisdom that is from above.’ choose this day which one you would embrace.
Anyone who chooses wisdom from above’ may start working on a vice from within that they want to overcome, by reading, studying and applying the appropriate scriptures to their life for their deliverance from that sin, by faith in Jesus’ name.
Remember too, that when you come to Christ, and cast your burden upon Him, and He separates you from the world of your particular sin/s operation within your members, so that you no longer have the desire to serve the sin/s you had loved to do so much: know that: (1) that cessation from it/them, is a sign of a sabbath, (2) Christ has given you rest from that/those sin/s, and (3) He has set you apart or sanctified you to serve Yahweh the one true living God.
Why the Inward Jew Nation of God embraces the New Testament Rest/ Sabbath
We, the Inward Jew Nation of God embrace the New Testament Rest/ Sabbath because (A) it is originated in Yahweh our heavenly Father, “in whom we live and dwell and have our being.” [Acts 17:28] (B) The seventh day Sabbath is blessed. [Genesis 2:2] (C) The Sabbath was made for man. (D) Working six days doing secular work, resting our physical body on the seventh day, and spending ample time in Yahweh’s awesome presence where we are refreshed and strengthened by the Word etc. is a great benefit to us. [Mark 2:27] (E) By keeping the seventh day sabbath rest in Christ, we by indentifying with Yahweh’s cessation of work on that day, we show love and respect for our heavenly Father and obedience to His Word. [Deuteronomy 6:4-9] (F) The seventh day Sabbath/ Rest is the Inward Jew Nation of God Culture.
The daily battle to overcome sin and to cease from such dead works within our members is a challenge that every believer must pursue by faith, in Jesus’ name. It is an objective towards our final goal to enter Yahweh’s Future Eternal Kingdom Rest, which we look forward to and are reminded of every seventh day when we meet together and identify with Yahweh’s Rest at Creation.
If this post has inspired you, do give Yahweh praise, and apply the infallable Word to your life, in Jesus ‘name. Thanks for reading this post, and please pass it on to others. I thank you.
