  • Hebrews 4:4-8

    Then somewhere he said this about the seventh day of creation: God rested on the seventh day from all his works. But again, in the passage above, God said, They will never enter my rest! Therefore, it’s left open for some to enter it, and the ones who had the good news preached to them before didn’t enter because of disobedience. Just as it says in the passage above, God designates a certain day as “today,” when he says through David much later,

    Today, if you hear his voice,
            don’t have stubborn hearts.

    If Joshua gave the Israelites rest, God wouldn’t have spoken about another day later on.
