Again Sister Anna ,
Lovely message , Blessings to all ,
I am reminded of resting in Hope and ceasing from those vain works , so the Lord can cleanse my heart and hands and put on charity , the labour of love that His Holy Spirit and our spirit will be joined as ONE as the soul in man can rest in HIS peace
For he spake in a certain place of the seventh [day] on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works.
Hbr 4:5 And in this [place] again, If they shall enter into my rest.
Hbr 4:6 Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief:
Hbr 4:7 Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts
Hbr 4:8 For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day.
Hbr 4:9 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God
Hbr 4:10 For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God [did] from his.
Hbr 4:11 Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest
, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.
Hbr 4:12 For the word of God [is] quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit
, and of the joints and marrow, and [is] a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart
Hbr 4:13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things [are] naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.
Hbr 4:14 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
Hbr 4:15 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.
Hbr 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
There is not a soul on the face of the whole earth whom does not need his Love , mercy and grace , I know not of anyone
I am also reminded of the hardened hearts and spirits in man that must be broken , for a time , the hardness becomes unbearable , you can almost feel the tightness within your chest
before the sweet release of every hard thing is built so tightly held up and the tears flow like clean spring rain within as the Lord forgives us as we forgive the others of such hard words spoken in anger and stress , this has been mine own experience , the Lord is good always and Love returning within your own heart feels pliable again so you can breath in peace once again
Psa 51:17 The sacrifices of God [are] a broken spirit
: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
Psa 34:18 The LORD [is] nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
Isa 57:15 For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name [is] Holy; I dwell in the high and holy [place], with him also [that is] of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
