Heb 3:18 And to whom did He swear that they would not enter His rest, but to those who did not OBEY?
Heb 3:19 So we see that they could not enter in because of UNBELIEF.
Bible defines disobedience as not having faith (Unbelief), and because of this unbelief, they could not enter into REST, not having the peace of God in their life. All is because of Unbelief or not having faith.
Heb 4:1 Therefore, since a promise remains of entering His REST, let us FEAR lest any of you seem to have come short of it.
Heb 4:2 For indeed the GOSPEL was preached to us as well as to them; but the word (the Gospel) which they heard did not profit them, not being mixed with FAITH in those who heard it.
Heb 4:3 For we who have believed (those who walk in FAITH) do enter that REST, …
The only FEAR that a Christian believer has to watch out for is the Fear of not entering into the place of REST. This place of Rest is the promised inheritance of God for believers to receive all His blessings. the promise of entering His rest still stands. The verse warned that let us be careful that none of believers be found to have fallen short of it. Rest can be possessed easily, when you hear the Gospel being preached. The Gospel is the good news of Jesus Christ, what He has done for us and who we are in Christ. When you keep hearing His Loving Kindness poured out for you, Faith raises us effortlessly, and this will profit your soul, as you come to the place of REST. This is the position that God wants you to have while He restores your life this year of His Restoration.
This year as we believe, we will enter the REST and experience the RESToration. So, as we wait for the full manifestation of the RESToration, we are going to grow in our Faith. Faith in the Gospel, Faith in all that Jesus has done at the cross. Believing what He did at the cross, that punishments He took, the beating He absorbed, is the full payment for us, He has paid the full price for our peace. Jesus payment is our peace. When you enter the Rest, you enter the PROMISED LAND, this is His inheritance for you as Children of God, His completeness, His blessings into your life. Thus, say this to yourself: “His payment is my possession ; His payment is my REST”.
