Matt. 11:28 – Come unto ME, all ye that LABOUR and are heavy LADEN, and I will give you REST ( Here Matthew is speaking to those under the law) ( âlaboringâ is the works of the law; we do not labor for Grace; it is given to us)
Vs. 29 – Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. ( See, if you are in rest, you are not laboring — the law is ‘ works’; laboring.
Vs. 30 – For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. ( Remember, that the old law was only heaviness and hard on them? Jesus changed this and gave us something light and easy to do) Praise God for the victory; for deliverance from that old hard way of life; from that old law.
Now, my dear friend, please take a few minutes of your time to stop and meditate on this. JESUS said come to ME. He did not say come to Saturday. He said come to me and I’ll give you rest. The REST for your SOUL; not rest for your body.
This is where the mix up comes in; you are still in the first covenant; = that of the flesh. The law in the word is referred to as âfleshâ This is the one that lines up with the first man Adam. It is the one that God hated= the Essau. He did away with this âfleshâ âlaboringâ covenant. Those people in that covenant never did please God. The law is not of faith; without faith it is impossible to please God. So, why would God require us to go back to that? If it is not of FAITH and you cannot please God without Faith, of what merit would there be in our returning back to thatafter Jesus gives us his rest and faith?
I just do not see how anyone can fail to see this? It is just too plainly taught in the word. Just because we see that we are not under that old law, does not mean that we go out and commit murderer or other sins. No! We go by Commandments of the New Testament. It is Holy living. Those back under that law never did live Holy. He lives In us. He lives his holy life in us. That is the difference. They never had that under the law; neither do you law keepers of today.
Jesus gives us rest to our souls. It is the second heaven. You are still in the first heaven which was done away with, Jesus is our rest. This rest is everyday; not just one day a week. The New Covenant is much more than the old. Jesus said we do not hate; for this Is murder. See, our standards are higher than those of the old. We keep the holy Commandments with the power of the Holy Ghost. But it is not the old law. I know that you cannot see what I am saying; for that old law blinds you.
Gal. 3:11 – But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith
Vs. 12 -And the law is not of faith:
It is a curse: vs. 13– Christ hath redeemed us FROMthe CURSE of the LAW — see? He REDEMMED us FROM theLAW? How much clearer does it need to be? He said it was a curse; he said It is not of faith; he said It cannot justify anyone to keep it. What more do you need?
Our SABBATH is the REST that Jesus GIVES US; IT IS NOT SOMETHING THAT WE DO
Vs. 24 – Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
vs., 25 – But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.= ( the law —we are no longer under the law. If you are under the law, you have not yet come to Christ.
The law is bondage: Paul said the same thing.
Gal. 4:24 – Which things are an allegory: for these are theTWO COVENANTS; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar. ( Now surely you know that this one is the one Moses got= the 10 Commandments)?—which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar ( Hagar and Ismael- the law = bondage= which is Agar= the one from Mt. Sinai)
Vs. 25 – For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is inBONDAGE WITH HER CHILDREN.
If you are under the law you are one of thechildren of Agar- for you are a ‘child’ of the law= which is bondage. So said the Holy Word of God. (No wonder the law keepers try so hard to discredit the Holy King James Bible
