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 Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight. All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him. Matthew 11:25-27
How can we know God? How can we become saved? It’s only through Jesus Christ (John 14:6) Jesus said “Nobody knows the Father God except the Son” All these religious people trying to bypass Christ , can never get to God. That’s why Jesus said “Father God hid these things from the wise “ Many religious people are not saved and never actually knew God at all, because you can only know God through Christ
Jesus said “To whom the Son will reveal Him (God)” Christ chooses us before we choose Him (Ephesians 1:4) This is a concept hard for us to grasp, that even when we were dead in our sins, Jesus called us and drew us towards Him to become reborn. All the religious practices of a lifetime can’t replace this supernatural event of becoming Born Again (John 3)
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Matthew 11:28-30
Come to Jesus and Christ will give you Rest , Jesus is our Sabbath Rest. You can’t enter into God’s Rest without Christ (Hebrews 4) To try and Keep the Sabbath without Christ is pointless, you are still dead in your sins (Ephesians 2) You need Christ as your Sabbath, you need to be Yoked with Christ, Abide in Jesus and Christ will show you the way.
When we look at The Law , we see our sinful nature, we see the enormous task of trying to “Keep The Law”, however Christ said “My Yoke Is Easy and My Burden Is Light” Jesus paid the penalty for our sins on the cross (John 19:30) Share the Yoke of Christ and Jesus will Give You Rest
Billions of people try to find God without Christ, they try to earn their own salvation, they all fail because Jesus Christ is the Living Son of God and The Lord is the only one who can give us Rest and reconcile us back to God, Amen!
