    The Rest All Prepared

    The fact that “they could not enter in because of unbelief” shows that they would have entered in if they had believed; and the fact that perfect rest was all ready for them, is still further shown by the statement, “the works were finished from the foundation of the world.” 1Hebrews 4:3. When works are finished, rest must ensue; accordingly we read that “God did rest the seventh day from all His works.” 2Hebrews 4:4. That is what God said in one place of the seventh day; but in another place He said, “They shall not enter into My rest.” 3Hebrews 4:5 We see, therefore, that the rest which was ready, and which the children of Israel did not enter into because of unbelief, was the rest connected with the seventh day. For it was God’s rest that was offered them, and it was His rest that they failed to secure, and the seventh day is the Sabbath—rest—of the Lord; it is the only rest of which we read in connection with God—God rested on the seventh day from all His work—and that rest was ready as soon as the work of creation was completed.EVCO 436.1
