“So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief” (Heb 3:19)
There is a place of rest for the people of God that can only be entered into by faith and trust in Jesus. Jesus is the way and the door of entry. The Hebrew word for rest is katapausis, which means a putting to rest, calming of the winds, a resting place, reposing down, that is abode.
Some may think this rest occurs when we physically die. While it is true (see Heb 4:9-10; Rev 6:11, 14:13), there is a rest that we enter into here and now if we can believe. That rest comes from dwelling/living/abiding in the Presence of God – THE GREAT I AM. Psalms 91:1 says that “he that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” It is the place of ceasing from our labors and entering into His. We have to believe that God’s Word and His Will are one. That reality is in knowing Him and making Him known. That salvation is for everyone. It’s not a myth, an alternative, nor a hoax.
