The True Sabbath Rest

(Gen. 2:2-3) "And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it:… This verse does not teach that God became tired and rested, nor does it teach that he created a Saturday Sabbath for all men. "…The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath…" (Mark 2:27).  Be careful when it comes to this teaching on the Sabbath that you don’t get the cart before the horse. Man was made after God taught about a day of rest for himself. In fact, a day of rest for man was not commanded by God until He gave it to Israel some 2400 yrs. later. On the 7th day God rested from His labor, giving man an example of the importance of resting both in God’s redemption and provision. (Heb 4:10)" For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his."  When  man decides to trust in  Jesus Christ, he enters into an eternal day of rest or (Sabbath) with Christ. As  God rested  on the 7th day, we too rest in Christ’s finished work. The word “sabbath” means to cease or  rest from one’s own laboring. God added this commandment to the Jewish law to teach them to spiritually honor God’s finished works, by physically relaxing from their own!

Called By The Gospel Of God

(Rom. 1:16)  “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”  The gospel of Jesus Christ is not just the biblical account of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection, but it’s also the power behind our salvation, our walk, and service for the Lord. 1) God’s gospel calls all men to salvation. All men, meaning even those who do not believe Him.God so loved man that He sent His prophets to preach salvation to man long before He came himself in Christ to show man the way. And so, from the very beginning of time God has been calling men to repent of sin and trust in Him and His Word. 2) God’s gospel call is to  “whosoever will.” It’s not just limited to the Jew, but it’s also available to anyone who desires forgiveness and peace with God. Unfortunately, although all men are called only a few answer back and find salvation. 3) God’s gospel calls every Christian to share it.It’s now our…

Salvation Is Through Christ Alone

(Rom. 14:11-12) “For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.” One day all men will stand in judgment before God, but there will be a special “great white throne judgment”(Rev. 20:11-15) set aside for the unsaved where God himself will explain to the unsaved that salvation apart from trusting in Jesus Christ is impossible. Different types of arguments and excuses will be given there: 1) Arguments by the Heathen Man . He believes that because he has never heard of Jesus he has an excuse, but God will show him that he once had the truth but rejected it. For all men came off  Noah’s Ark, unfortunately those that forsook God damned the next generations to follow by replacing God with the idols and the lies of men. So, no matter where man is found on earth he is guilty of rejecting God’s way of salvation for his own. That’s why Missions is so important today, fo…
