    Hebrews 3-4 [KJB], the 7th Day the Sabbath of the LORD JEHOVAH - "my rest" "remaineth" to My people.

    The book of Hebrews is built upon the ladder of learning system, beginning with the foundation, and building upon each precisely measured truth, in its “therefore”, “wherefore” and “for” statements. For instance:

    Hebrews 1, lays the foundation in the eternal unchanging Deity and Co-Creatorship of Jesus Christ, who has a more excellent name than that of the created angelic hosts.

    Hebrews 2, then begins with the connecting link to the previous foundation, with its “therefore”, and builds upon the other nature of Jesus Christ, namely that of the likeness of his fallen sinful flesh nature of humanity that He had taken upon Himself.

    Hebrews 3, then continues to build upon those two things further, and connects to the past truth, with its “wherefore”, and delves straight into the peoples Israel [sons of natural Jacob] of the past, with Moses as a type of Christ; thus showing that Christ is the greater Moses, and in vs 7, another link “wherefore”, pointing to the failure in faith, and the rebellion of action as the result, drawing a parallel between they of old, and the we of then in Paul's day and so also now.

    Hebrews 4, then continues the building exhortation, by its “Let us therefore”, and moves right into an an expanded comparison of the past with the present situation, in matters of living faith, granting the victory over sin. Paul, under inspiration of the Holy Ghost, draws from several passages of scripture, and draws a conclusion, with another link in vs 6, a “therefore” and further throughout with additional conclusions and places to step higher, in vs 14, “Seeing then”, and vs 16, “Let us therefore”. Living faith may therefore climb up Jacob's ladder [Christ Jesus] and reach the Throne of Grace, even “boldly”, to find pardon and cleansing for sin.

    Hebrews 5, then takes this point on faith, grace, forgiveness, and cleansing, and takes the next step, pointing out the temporary changing Highpriests of old, and the eternal Highpriesthood of Jesus Christ, who is now, with its “For”.

    Hebrews 6, then takes this another step higher, with its link of “Therefore”, and moves into the eternal promises of God and eternal covenant made with Abraham [etc], in Christ Jesus, and that true living and abiding faith in contrast with that which is mere 'fool's gold faith' [I believe, I believe, and no corresponding result, thus draw back into doubt, masking as 'faith'].

    Hebrews 7, then going further into detail about how Jesus Christ can be a real Highpriest, is linked to the previous, with its “For this”, demonstrating that Jesus is after a higher order, a more ancient order of priest, the Melchizedek priesthood, to which even Abraham, the father of the faithful, acknowledges by tithe. Paul draws out a conclusion in vs 11, “If therefore” and continues.

    Hebrews 8, reaches a midway peak, and summarizes all that has been stated before, with its “Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum”, and continues by contrasting the shadows of the Levitical with the reality of Jesus' Melchizedical, along with the old and new covenants.

    Hebrews 9, begins with the summarized truth, “Then verily”, and shows the contrast of the earthly sanctuary and its recurring animal sacrifices with that of the true Heavenly, with Christ as the real Mediator between God and man, and the one true sacrifice that was foretold from the beginning, which parallels the language of Colossians 2 and Ephesians 2.

    Hebrews 10, continues the thought of Hebrews 9, with is “For”, and shows that the Levitical written laws had types, figures and shadows all pointing to their substance, their body, their reality, Christ Jesus, and because we now have the real sacrifice, sins can truly be cleansed, whereas the blood of goats and calves do not do so, and that everyone taking hold of this sacrifice may enter into God's presence through faith in it.

    Hebrews 11, then takes us back to the beginning with “Now faith” and “by faith ...” in the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world, and unites the peoples of faith gone before, with those present, and all those yet to come in the redemption and resurrection provided in Christ Jesus.

    Hebrews 12, takes this great 'hall of faith', and links to it with “wherefore”, for the now present persons looking at the significance of the death, burial, resurrection and ascension of the Messiah, and continues with the striking difference between the judgments gone before because of transgression/sin, and the great Judgment to come, but not to grow weary and cling to the blessed Hope, which is Christ Jesus.

    Hebrews 13, one can hear the echoed “wherefore” of Hebrews 12:28, in that also in vs 29 God is a consuming fire, who is love, and so “Let brotherly love continue.”, and like as Jesus so loved, in Hebrews 13:12, “wherefore” we ought also to follow such an example of love, and thus, chapters 11, 12 and 13, might appropriately be called the chapters of “Faith, Hope & Love”, and the greatest of these is Love.
    Hebrews 4, the short of it:

    Hebrews 4:1 KJB - Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.

    Hebrews 4:2 KJB - For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.


    Hebrews 4:3 KJB - For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.


    Hebrews 4:4 KJB - 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.


    Hebrews 4:5 KJB - And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest.


    Hebrews 4:6 KJB - Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief:


    Hebrews 4:7 KJB - 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.


    Hebrews 4:8 KJB - For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day.


    Hebrews 4:9 KJB - There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.


    Hebrews 4:10 KJB - For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.


    Hebrews 4:11 KJB - Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

    The Challenge accepted:

    “... ANOTHER of Mr. _______ statements that he sets forth as one of his "unanswerable propositions" is that "every one of the ten commandments is expressly reaffirmed in the New Testament except the Sabbath law, and there is not a syllable in our whole New Testament suggesting that the Sabbath is binding on the Christian." And "the one commandment upon which the Seventh-day people lay all their emphasis is neither by explicit statement nor hint said to be binding upon Christians in any verse in the New Testament." {May 30, 1899 ATJ, ARSH 344.1}

    From this statement made and repeated it is evident that there are, in the New Testament, at least nearly two whole chapters which Mr. _______ has read to very little purpose. Indeed, it would seem that he had not read them at all; but the fact that he has been for years one of the leading Bible teachers of the whole country, renders it hardly possible that he has not read the New Testament through. Yet for such a prominent Bible teacher to make and repeat such a statement as that, betrays a lack of knowledge of the New Testament, that surely presents not a very promising prospect to a Bible school for Christian workers. {May 30, 1899 ATJ, ARSH 344.2}

    The two chapters to which we refer are the third and fourth of Hebrews. It is the literal truth that the greater part of these two chapters is a treatise upon the true Sabbath of the seventh day, its true meaning, and its true observance; and it is all addressed TO CHRISTIANS. That Mr. _______ has not yet found this portion of the New Testament is nothing against the fact of its being there. It is there, and it is a great spiritual truth; for the Sabbath is spiritual, and spiritual things are only spiritually discerned. {May 30, 1899 ATJ, ARSH 344.3}

    Sabbath is rest. The Sabbath of the Lord is the rest of the Lord. And the Sabbath day of the Lord is the rest day of the Lord. The word of the Lord is, "The seventh day is the Sabbath [the rest] of the Lord thy God." It is not man's rest, it is God's rest. And so it is written. "In six days the Lord made heaven and earth, . . . and rested the seventh day." Ex. 20:11. "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." Gen. 2:2. And "he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise. And God did rest the seventh day from all his works. And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest." Heb. 4:4, 5. Thus in Hebrews 4 the subject is the same precisely as in Gen. 2:2, 3, and in Ex. 20:8-11, the fourth commandment; that subject is the Sabbath of the Lord, God's rest of the seventh day, and being addressed directly to Christians, and in the New Testament, too, is definite instruction to Christians as to the true Christian observance of the Sabbath of the Lord, the seventh day. And this subject in the fourth chapter of Hebrews is simply the continuation of the same subject from the third chapter of Hebrews; and that subject is God's rest of the seventh day. This shows that the Sabbath of the seventh day, the Sabbath of the fourth commandment, and its observance, is distinctly treated in the greater part of at least two chapters in the New Testament, and is there addressed directly to Christians. Brother _______ has not yet learned this. We are telling it to him just now. {May 30, 1899 ATJ, ARSH 344.4}

    Now, remembering what Friend _______ asked of each reader,—that he "go to God in prayer and covenant with him that he will stand upon what the word of God teaches whether it agrees with his previous notions or not,"—come, let us study the third and fourth chapters of Hebrews, and see what is there taught in the word of God. {May 30, 1899 ATJ, ARSH 344.5} ...” - The Advent Review and Sabbath Herald, vol. 76 May 30, 1899, page 344 par. 1- par. 5 [name withheld, to now apply to general audiences]
    Let us continue the look at Hebrews 3 & 4 in more detail ...

    Hebrews 3:1 KJB - Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;

    Hebrews 3:1 KJB is tied to True High Priest in the True Heavenly Tabernacle/Temple/Sanctuary in Heaven itself:

    Hebrews 8:1 KJB - Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens;

    Hebrews 8:2 KJB - A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.

    Hebrews 8:5 KJB - Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount.

    Hebrews 9:23 KJB - It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.

    Hebrews 9:24 KJB - For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:​

    This again demonstrates that there is indeed a work that Christ Jesus is doing in the true Temple in Heaven. There is an eternal Law in the Heavens that has been transgressed, in which we need such an High Priest to minister upon the repentant sinners behalf, to be an Advocate for. The blood of Calvary is linked to this most sacred of services of love.​

    Hebrews 3:2 KJB - Who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses was faithful in all his house.

    Jesus was appointed by the Father to be High Priest:

    Hebrews 1:5 KJB - For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?

    Hebrews 5:5 KJB - So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said unto him, Thou art my Son, to day have I begotten thee.​

    For as the Father's Law was broken, only One equal with God, could be mediator between God [Law giver] and man [Law transgressor], who would uphold the Justice and Mercy of His Father in His [Jesus'] own sacrifice:

    1 Timothy 2:5 KJB - For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;​

    Hebrews 3:3 KJB - For this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who hath builded the house hath more honour than the house.

    Jesus is the true builder of the Temple of God, while Moses was merely the type:

    Ephesians 2:21 KJB - In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:

    Exodus 25:8 KJB - And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them.

    Exodus 25:9 KJB - According to all that I shew thee, after the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it.

    Exodus 25:40 KJB - And look that thou make them after their pattern, which was shewed thee in the mount.
    See also Numbers 8:4; Joshua 22:28; 1 Chronicles 28:10-12,19; Psalms 77:13; Ezekiel 43:10-12; Ephesians 1:20; Hebrews 8:1-6, 9:23; 13:10; Daniel 8:11-14,26, 9:24, 11:31; Revelation 1:12,13, 3:7,8 4:1,5, 9:13, 11:1,19, 15:5 KJB.

    Jesus Himself is also the Temple, and His body part of Him:

    Revelation 21:22 KJB - And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.

    John 2:19 KJB - Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.

    John 2:20 KJB - Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?

    John 2:21 KJB - But he spake of the temple of his body.
    Jesus raised from the dead roughly 2000 years ago, and when the millennium [1,000 years of Revelation 20:1-7; Daniel 7:22; Isaiah 24:22 KJB] comes, for the 7,000th year, which “evening” portion begins on earth [as there is no night in heaven; Revelation 22:5 KJB, etc], the Church of Christ will be made perfect [Ephesians 4:13 KJB], and the Temple of the Lamb, will be “finished” [John 10:7 KJB], for it will have been within the 3 “days” “with the LORD” [2 Peter 3:8; Psalms 90:4 KJB]. The natural to the spiritual [1 Corinthians 15:44-46 KJB].​

    Hebrews 3:4 KJB - For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God.

    For the Father made all things by/through the Son, Christ Jesus:

    Hebrews 1:1 KJB - God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,

    Hebrews 1:2 KJB - Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

    Hebrews 1:3 KJB - Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;​

    See also Genesis 1:1-2:3; Proverbs 8:22-31; John 1:1-3; 1 John 1:1-3; Ephesians 3:9; Colossians 1:15-19 KJB, etc.​

    Hebrews 3:5 KJB - And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after;

    [01] Righteous Man, a man that executheth My [God's] Counsel, a servant
    [02] [He is] my shepherd
    [03] From the East, Deliverer
    [04] God was to subdue the Nations before Him/them
    [05] God, "I" will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight
    [06] That saith to the temple, Thy foundation shall be laid
    [07] That saith to the deep, Be dry, and I will dry up thy rivers
    [08] Anointed
    [09] "Glory of a blazing furnace, or to shine like the sun"
    [10] Great treasures/wealth would be given unto him
    and God reigned as King through ...


    Moses was merely the type [as Cyrus was], while Christ Jesus is the reality. More details on this in the Daniel 11:1-20 KJB, study, for history has repeated at least three times [Ecclesiastes 1:9; 3:15 KJB] [01 – Egypt to Babylon, 02 – Babylon to [Rome] Jesus, 03 – Jesus unto the end] ...​

    Hebrews 3:7 KJB - Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice,

    Citing:

    Psalms 95:7 KJB - For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice,​

    The Psalms 95, is known as a “Sabbath” Psalm, for it deals with the Creator God:

    John Calvin on Psalms 95:1 -

    “... 1.Come, let us rejoice before Jehovah. This psalm is suited for the Sabbath, when we know that the religious assemblies were more particularly convened for the worship of God. It is not individuals among the godly whom he exhorts to celebrate the divine praises in private; he enjoins these to be offered up in the public meeting. ...” - Psalms 95:1 - O come, let us sing... - Verse-by-Verse Commentary

    John Trapp Complete Commentary on Psalms 95:1 -

    “... Ver. 1. O come, let us sing unto the Lord] It is thought by this beginning that this psalm was not penned by David for private use, but for public assemblies, to be sung by the congregation on the sabbath and such like times ...” - Psalms 95:1 - O come, let us sing... - Verse-by-Verse Commentary

    Coffman's Commentaries on the Bible, Psalms 95:1 -

    “... Scholars usually group the six psalms from Psalms 95 through Psalms 100 as liturgical psalms, designed for use by the Israelites as they gathered for Sabbath day worship. "This group of psalms seems to have been composed for use in the services of the second temple."[1] ...” - Psalms 95:1 - O come, let us sing... - Verse-by-Verse Commentary

    Forerunner Commentary on Psalms 95:1 -

    "... This is a Psalm that the commentators call a "Sabbath Psalm." It is indicating an activity that is taking place on the Sabbath. That is when people gather before God, shout joyfully, and come before His presence with thanksgiving. Of course, anybody can do that in prayer as well, but this is a Sabbath Psalm. That is its broad application. ...” - Psalms 95:1 (KJV) - Forerunner Commentary

    Scriptures:

    Psalms 95:1 KJB - O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.

    Psalms 95:2 KJB - Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.

    salms 95:3 KJB - For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.

    Psalms 95:4 KJB - In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also.

    Psalms 95:5 KJB - The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land.

    Psalms 95:6 KJB - O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.

    Psalms 95:7 KJB - For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice,​

    Compare Psalms 95 to Psalms 100 KJB:

    Psalms 100:1 KJB - A Psalm of praise. Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.

    Psalms 100:2 KJB - Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

    Psalms 100:3 KJB - Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

    Psalms 100:4 KJB - Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

    Psalms 100:5 KJB - For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.​

    Psalms 95:10-11

    God's wrath is temporary

    Mercy & Truth are everlasting

    “... his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.”​

    Exodus 20:8 KJB - Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

    Exodus 20:9 KJB - Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

    Exodus 20:10 KJB - But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

    Exodus 20:11 KJB - For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.​

    The Holy Ghost is inspiring David, the Psalms writer, to explicitly warn the people of God [2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21 KJB].

    Hebrews 3:7 KJB - Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice,

    ... continued ...

    The Father is the “husbandman”:

    John 15:1 KJB - I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.​

    Jesus is the “voice” of God, the Father:

    Genesis 3:8 KJB - And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.​

    John 1:1 KJB - In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

    1 John 1:1 KJB - That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;​

    Jesus is the under-shepherd of the Father, also an husbandman:

    Zechariah 13:5 KJB - But he shall say, I am no prophet, I am an husbandman; for man taught me to keep cattle from my youth.​

    Jesus is the “good shepherd” of His people:

    Psalms 95:7 KJB - For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice,

    1 Kings 22:17 KJB - And he said, I saw all Israel scattered upon the hills, as sheep that have not a shepherd: and the LORD said, These have no master: let them return every man to his house in peace.

    2 Chronicles 18:16 KJB - Then he said, I did see all Israel scattered upon the mountains, as sheep that have no shepherd: and the LORD said, These have no master; let them return therefore every man to his house in peace.

    Psalms 23:1 KJB - A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.​

    God's people, “the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand ...”

    Psalms 80:1 KJB - To the chief Musician upon Shoshannimeduth, A Psalm of Asaph. Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joseph like a flock; thou that dwellest between the cherubims, shine forth.

    Isaiah 40:11 KJB - He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.​

    Compare:

    Matthew 19:14 KJB - But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.

    Mark 10:14 KJB - But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.

    Luke 18:16 KJB - But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.

    John 21:15 KJB - So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.

    John 21:16 KJB - He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

    Ezekiel 34:11 KJB - For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out.

    Ezekiel 34:12 KJB - As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.

    Mark 6:34 KJB - And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.​

    Those heard the voice of the Good Shepherd:

    John 10:2 KJB - But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.

    John 10:11 KJB - I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

    John 10:14 KJB - I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.​

    The great I AM, Jesus, is the Good Shepherd, who knows His, and are known of His:

    Isaiah 56:8 KJB - The Lord GOD which gathereth the outcasts of Israel saith, Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered unto him.

    John 10:16 KJB - And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.​

    Which “good shepherd” gave “His life for the sheep”? To whom does the “little flock” belong then, and whose “voice” “shall” “they” “hear”? It is the very voice of Jesus, calling them, “...follow me.”

    Psalms 95:6 KJB - O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.

    Psalms 95:7 KJB - For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice,​

    Who saw us like “... sheep without a shepherd ...” [1 Kings 22:17; 2 Chronicles 18:16; Mark 6:34 KJB] and came to “... to seek and to save that which was lost ...” [Luke 19:10 KJB]?

    Scripture hath said,

    Jeremiah 31:3 KJB - The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.​

    Who is it that even had “... appeared of old ...”, and has loved us “... with an everlasting love ...”? Who is it that with “... lovingkindness ...” has “... drawn thee ...”? It is Jesus Christ:

    Isaiah 45:22 KJB - Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.

    John 12:32 KJB - And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.​

    Think about what is going to the “... uttermost parts of the earth ...” and “... all the ends of the earth ...” even now:

    Matthew 26:31 KJB - Then saith Jesus unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad.

    Mark 14:27 KJB - And Jesus saith unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered.

    Hebrews 13:20 KJB - Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant,

    1 Peter 2:25 KJB - For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.

    1 Peter 5:4 KJB - And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.

    John 10:15 KJB - As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.​

    Hebrews 3:7 KJB - Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice,

    ... continued ...

    Who is it that is coming to gather all of His Sheep from the four corners of the earth, from the four winds of heaven and shall separate the sheep from the goats?

    Matthew 24:31 KJB - And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

    Matthew 25:32 KJB - And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

    Matthew 25:33 KJB - And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

    Mark 13:27 KJB - And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.​

    We are the sheep of His pasture... and we know His voice... for the Shepherd calls us. He calls those of His sheep to “... come out of her, my people ...”. Do we belong to Him or to another?

    Acts 17:27 KJB - That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:​

    Compare:

    Matthew 28:20 KJB - Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

    Isaiah 42:5 KJB - Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein:​

    Compare:

    John 20:22 KJB - And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:

    John 10:27 KJB - My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:​

    Compare:

    See again Psalms 95 KJB, for whose voice to follow:

    ... Follow me ...”: Matthew 9:9, 16:24, 19:21; Mark 2:14 KJB,

    ... his disciples follow him ...”: Mark 6:1, 8:34, 10:21, Luke 5:27, 9:23,59, 18:22; John 1:43, 10:27, 12:26, 13:36, 21:19 KJB,

    ... follow thou me ...”: John 21:22 KJB,

    ... follow the Lamb ...”: Revelation 14:4 KJB​

    John 10:3 KJB - To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.

    John 10:4 KJB - And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.​

    Compare:

    Deuteronomy 1:30 KJB - The LORD your God which goeth before you, he shall fight for you, according to all that he did for you in Egypt before your eyes;

    Deuteronomy 1:33 KJB - Who went in the way before you, to search you out a place to pitch your tents in, in fire by night, to shew you by what way ye should go, and in a cloud by day.

    Matthew 28:7 KJB - And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.

    Mark 16:7 KJB - But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you.

    John 18:37 KJB - Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.​

    Jesus is no hireling, but He is the Good and Great Shepherd of the Sheep:

    Do we not desire to know the Truth [whom is Jesus], and to heed the voice [Psalms 95:7; Hebrews 3:7,15, 4:7, etc KJB] and call of the LORD [JEHOVAH] God? We ought to know from these texts then, that it is Jesus Christ that calleth us. Do we hear Him, do we follow Him? For He is the Way, The Truth and the Life, that Good Shepherd:

    Psalms 23:1 KJB - A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

    Psalms 23:2 KJB - He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

    John 10:3 KJB - To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.​

    Jesus is the Separator of the Sheep and the Goats:

    Ezekiel 34:15 KJB - I will feed my flock, and I will cause them to lie down, saith the Lord GOD.

    Ezekiel 34:16 KJB - I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick: but I will destroy the fat and the strong; I will feed them with judgment.

    Ezekiel 34:17 KJB - And as for you, O my flock, thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I judge between cattle and cattle, between the rams and the he goats.

    Matthew 25:31 KJB - When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

    Matthew 25:32 KJB - And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

    Matthew 25:33 KJB - And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

    Luke 19:10 KJB - For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.​

    The Holy Ghost is instructing the people of God to listen to the pleas of God, that strive with their hearts, to hear, as throughout time:

    Genesis 6:3 KJB - And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

    Psalms 103:8 KJB - The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.

    Psalms 103:9 KJB - He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever.

    Isaiah 57:16 KJB - For I will not contend for ever, neither will I be always wroth: for the spirit should fail before me, and the souls which I have made.

    Ephesians 4:30 KJB - And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.​

    They [past] had a 'day' of grace back then to repent and believe and obey God. They refused, did not believe and did not keep God's commandment. Thus, they [past] did not enter in. A[nother] 'day' of grace is open for us [now, present]. Do not refuse to believe as they, do not refuse to repent as they, and do not refuse to keep God's commandment as they, and rest the 7th Day as God did, otherwise like they, those also shall not enter in.

    It is “to day”, and that “to day” is the day of grace. Soon that “to day” of grace will close. All those still found not in repentant obedience to God, will perish. Make the decision then “to day”, and “harden not your heart”, and obey God in His commandment [Exodus 20:8-11 KJB], which is the demonstration of faith and love, that Jesus has delivered from sin [1 John 3:4 KJB].

    Hebrews 3:8 KJB - Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness:

    Citing:

    Psalms 95:8 KJB - Harden not your heart, as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness:​

    The Holy Ghost warns us to not harden our hearts, and to not resist His entreaties to repentance, as Pharaoh did, and as those Israelites of the past and as others so did, for the end thereof is death:

    Exodus 7:13 KJB - And he hardened Pharaoh's heart, that he hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had said.

    Exodus 7:14 KJB - And the LORD said unto Moses, Pharaoh's heart is hardened, he refuseth to let the people go.

    Exodus 7:22 KJB - And the magicians of Egypt did so with their enchantments: and Pharaoh's heart was hardened, neither did he hearken unto them; as the LORD had said.

    Exodus 8:15 KJB - But when Pharaoh saw that there was respite, he hardened his heart, and hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had said.

    Exodus 8:19 KJB - Then the magicians said unto Pharaoh, This is the finger of God: and Pharaoh's heart was hardened, and he hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had said.

    Exodus 8:32 KJB - And Pharaoh hardened his heart at this time also, neither would he let the people go.

    Exodus 9:7 KJB - And Pharaoh sent, and, behold, there was not one of the cattle of the Israelites dead. And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, and he did not let the people go.

    Exodus 9:12 KJB - And the LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had spoken unto Moses.

    Exodus 9:34 KJB - And when Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and the thunders were ceased, he sinned yet more, and hardened his heart, he and his servants.

    Exodus 9:35 KJB - And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, neither would he let the children of Israel go; as the LORD had spoken by Moses.

    Exodus 10:1 KJB - And the LORD said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh: for I have hardened his heart, and the heart of his servants, that I might shew these my signs before him:

    Exodus 10:20 KJB - But the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart, so that he would not let the children of Israel go.

    Exodus 10:27 KJB - But the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart, and he would not let them go.

    Exodus 11:10 KJB - And Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh: and the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart, so that he would not let the children of Israel go out of his land.

    Exodus 14:8 KJB - And the LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and he pursued after the children of Israel: and the children of Israel went out with an high hand.

    Deuteronomy 2:30 KJB - But Sihon king of Heshbon would not let us pass by him: for the LORD thy God hardened his spirit, and made his heart obstinate, that he might deliver him into thy hand, as appeareth this day.

    2 Chronicles 36:13 KJB - And he also rebelled against king Nebuchadnezzar, who had made him swear by God: but he stiffened his neck, and hardened his heart from turning unto the LORD God of Israel.

    Job 9:4 KJB - He is wise in heart, and mighty in strength: who hath hardened himself against him, and hath prospered?

    Job 41:24 KJB - His heart is as firm as a stone; yea, as hard as a piece of the nether millstone.

    Job 41:34 KJB - He beholdeth all high things: he is a king over all the children of pride.

    Isaiah 63:17 KJB - O LORD, why hast thou made us to err from thy ways, and hardened our heart from thy fear? Return for thy servants' sake, the tribes of thine inheritance.

    Daniel 5:20 KJB - But when his heart was lifted up, and his mind hardened in pride, he was deposed from his kingly throne, and they took his glory from him:

    Mark 6:52 KJB - For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was hardened.

    Mark 8:17 KJB - And when Jesus knew it, he saith unto them, Why reason ye, because ye have no bread? perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have ye your heart yet hardened?

    John 12:40 KJB - He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.​

    If we choose to not “know” and choose to be “without understanding”, it is because we have a hard heart, and resist the “Wisdom” of God [Proverbs 8:22-36; 1 Corinthians 1:24 KJB], Christ Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

    Hosea 4:6 KJB - My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

    Mark 7:18 KJB - And he saith unto them, Are ye so without understanding also? Do ye not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the man, it cannot defile him;

    Romans 1:31 KJB - Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

    Matthew 11:25 KJB - At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.

    Luke 9:45 KJB - But they understood not this saying, and it was hid from them, that they perceived it not: and they feared to ask him of that saying.

    Luke 10:21 KJB - In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.

    Luke 18:34 KJB - And they understood none of these things: and this saying was hid from them, neither knew they the things which were spoken.​

    Hebrews 3:8 KJB - Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness:

    ... continued ...

    The word “provocation” [Psalms 95:8 KJB], “strife” [Genesis 13:8; Numbers 27:14; Psalms 106:32; Ezekiel 47:19, 48:28 KJB] [KJB] in Hebrew is [H4808], “כמריבה”, “Kim'riyväh”, which in Transliterated English is, “Meribah” [H4809] [Exodus 17:7; Number 20:13,24, 27:14; Deuteronomy 32:51, 33:8; Psalms 81:7] [and see also “Massah”, Exodus 17:7; Deuteronomy 6:16, 9:22, 33:8 KJB]:

    Exodus 17:2 KJB - Wherefore the people did chide with Moses, and said, Give us water that we may drink. And Moses said unto them, Why chide ye with me? wherefore do ye tempt the LORD?

    Exodus 17:7 KJB - And he called the name of the place Massah, and Meribah, because of the chiding of the children of Israel, and because they tempted the LORD, saying, Is the LORD among us, or not?

    Numbers 20:13 KJB - This is the water of Meribah; because the children of Israel strove with the LORD, and he was sanctified in them.

    Numbers 20:24 KJB - Aaron shall be gathered unto his people: for he shall not enter into the land which I have given unto the children of Israel, because ye rebelled against my word at the water of Meribah.

    Deuteronomy 6:16 KJB - Ye shall not tempt the LORD your God, as ye tempted him in Massah.

    Deuteronomy 6:17 KJB - Ye shall diligently keep the commandments of the LORD your God, and his testimonies, and his statutes, which he hath commanded thee.

    Deuteronomy 9:13 KJB - Furthermore the LORD spake unto me, saying, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people:

    Deuteronomy 9:14 KJB - Let me alone, that I may destroy them, and blot out their name from under heaven: and I will make of thee a nation mightier and greater than they.

    Deuteronomy 9:15 KJB - So I turned and came down from the mount, and the mount burned with fire: and the two tables of the covenant were in my two hands.

    Deuteronomy 9:16 KJB - And I looked, and, behold, ye had sinned against the LORD your God, and had made you a molten calf: ye had turned aside quickly out of the way which the LORD had commanded you.

    Hebrews 3:10 KJB - Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways.

    Citing:

    Psalms 95:10 KJB - Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said, It is a people that do err in their heart, and they have not known my ways:​

    Why was God “grieved” with that “generation”? As the text says, “It is a people that do err in their heart, and they have not known my ways:”

    [1] err in their heart

    [2] have not known [experience] my ways​

    Romans 9:31 KJB - But Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness, hath not attained to the law of righteousness.

    Romans 9:32 KJB - Wherefore? Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumblingstone;

    Hebrews 4:2 KJB - For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.

    1 John 3:4 KJB - Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.​

    Because the peoples Israel did not believe the promises of God, they did not obey God in His words, and because they did not trust, they could have no lasting rest, and could not actually keep Sabbath with God. There are specific examples of this unbelief, and it manifests in sabbath-breaking, and through sabbath-breaking, how could they enter into the land of promise?, since they did not by faith believe in God's promise to grant them the victory, and thus did not trust in His providence to rest, and Sabbath with God:

    Numbers 14:11 KJB - And the LORD said unto Moses, How long will this people provoke me? and how long will it be ere they believe me, for all the signs which I have shewed among them?

    Numbers 15:36 KJB - And all the congregation brought him without the camp, and stoned him with stones, and he died; as the LORD commanded Moses.

    Nehemiah 9:16 KJB - But they and our fathers dealt proudly, and hardened their necks, and hearkened not to thy commandments,

    Nehemiah 9:17 KJB - And refused to obey, neither were mindful of thy wonders that thou didst among them; but hardened their necks, and in their rebellion appointed a captain to return to their bondage: but thou art a God ready to pardon, gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and forsookest them not.

    Nehemiah 10:31 KJB - And if the people of the land bring ware or any victuals on the sabbath day to sell, that we would not buy it of them on the sabbath, or on the holy day: and that we would leave the seventh year, and the exaction of every debt.

    rest” = [G2663] “καταπαυσιν”, “katapausin”

    Notice the connection of actual and true Sabbath-keeping with faith. It is necessary to have faith, to believe that the “works” were “finished” from the foundation of the world, for all who do not believe, attempt to maintain their own evil works, through unbelief, inspite of God's good works.

    Hebrews 3:12 KJB - Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.

    The peoples Israel of old are given as a warning to us, spiritual Israel of to day, in matters of faith and doubt [unbelief], for through doubt comes sin [Romans 14:23 KJB], and all sin, is transgression against God and His Law [1 John 3:4 KJB]:

    1 Corinthians 10:1 KJB - Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea;

    1 Corinthians 10:2 KJB - And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea;

    1 Corinthians 10:3 KJB - And did all eat the same spiritual meat;

    1 Corinthians 10:4 KJB - And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.

    1 Corinthians 10:10 KJB - Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.

    1 Corinthians 10:11 KJB - Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.

    Hebrews 3:13 KJB - But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

    The “to day” is not a single moment in time, but a length of time of God's grace. In other words, the “to day” is the “day” of Grace which is extended for a period of time, known unto God. Probation for mankind, “to day”, is only open so long as Christ Jesus is ministering in the Heavenly sanctuary [Daniel 12:1; Luke 13:25; Revelation 8:1; Revelation 8:5, 10:7, 15:8, 22:11 KJB], the “true Tabernacle” which God pitched and not man.

    The ARK of the Covenant HAS BEEN FOUND since AD 1844! The Sabbath Commandment [Ex. 20:8-11] is seen!

    However, once Jesus is “finished” [Revelation 10:7 KJB] with this the Day of Atonement, there is no more opportunity to enter in. The door will be shut forever [Genesis 7:16, 19:10; Matthew 24:36-39; Luke 17:26-30], and then falls unmingled wrath, the 7 last plagues.

    Romans 14:23 KJB - “... for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.”

    1 John 3:4 KJB - Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.​
