This is the Actual 1st or Second Century Page of Hebrews Chapter 4 written 65 A.D. As you can see, this is AMAZING. Part of Papyrus 46.

Hebrews 4

4 Therefore, since the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us be careful that none of you be found to have fallen short of it. 2 For we also have had the good news proclaimed to us, just as they did; but the message they heard was of no value to them, because they did not share the faith of those who obeyed.

3 Now we who have believed enter that rest, just as God has said,

“So I declared on oath in my anger,
‘They shall never enter my rest.’”

And yet his works have been finished since the creation of the world.

4 For somewhere he has spoken about the seventh day in these words: “On the seventh day God rested from all his works.” 5 And again in the passage above he says, “They shall never enter my rest.”

6 Therefore since it still remains for some to enter that rest, and since those who formerly had the good news proclaimed to them did not go in because of their disobedience, 7 God again set a certain day, calling it “Today.” This he did when a long time later he spoke through David, as in the passage already quoted:

“Today, if you hear his voice,
do not harden your hearts.”

8 For if Joshua had given them rest, God would not have spoken later about another day. 9 There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; 10 for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from their works, just as God did from his. 11 Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will perish by following their example of disobedience.

12 For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. 13 Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.

14 Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. 15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. 16 Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

What if?

What if you had 24 hours to live? You have to love Bible Study with believers - the ideas keep rolling!

For Christians, this isn't an usual thought. We actually believe Father God dwells within us - when we ask earnestly. Then - we provide a place for Him to dwell to delight Him. This call is to believe we have our destination.

What if we believed - Heaven IS at Hand? Jesus said the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.

The Word of God is active and alive. This Sunday - My son Alexander, Ashley and I had the unique experience traveling to a restaurant. To become amazed and dazzled to discover this restaurant, in Waco, is part of a vast Christian Experience of loving the work God gives us. A return to the way we know our country began.

We got out of the car to find - Cafe Homestead, of course, is never opened on Sundays. We turned to go. To be asked to share breakfast with a Church doing a work project. To sit in the garden. To have the door open and to be Invited to Come In. The place was unique and filled with the goodness of an antique type place and gleams as if new. One man came over to tell us about restoring barns all over the country. Another lady came to tell us about making furniture to endure generations.

We became unable to hold a regular conversation in between the restoration stories. We beamed. Finally at our table in the closed Restaurant filled only with our group of three - overlooking the perfect porch and the perfect garden - Someone said, "This is Sunday."

And of course, what was meant, this unique event to be fed amazing food in a closed restaurant. To have doors and lights flung open - was a lot like a Prodigal Father inviting His Beloved through 12 Open Gates and into His Kingdom.

It was a Glimpse.

Let me add to this, and this is the Bible Study of Today's Scripture:

If you put Christ followers in a room of twelve, you are going to hear from at least a quarter of them - they have had that Visitation Dream. And then you are going to see in that Visitation Dream Jesus gifts us - Fruit happens. Truths are established. This becomes the mustard seed turning into a Tree of such magnitude - hope, faith and love nestle in the branches.

For decades, I've met Jesus in Heaven, sitting near Jesus in Beauty. The Earth glorified in His Kingdom. And peace of Psalm 131 - I have calmed and quieted myself, I am like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child I am content. Put your hope in the Lord both now and forevermore.

And then I had a dream that was a Vision God gave me. Paul tells us Heaven has levels. This upsets people, yet if God says so, then, this is His Plan.

2 Corinthians 12:2
caught up to the third heaven

Deuteronomy 10:14
To the LORD your God belong the heavens, even the highest heavens, the earth and everything in it.

I had no idea the Vatican was large like this. I came to a place that was the Father's House with many, many rooms. And it was very quiet in my dream. Father God was not seen, I'm quite sure I'm not that worth! And I am quite sure this was were we will all visit in Joel 3. This is not the level where my soul will stay for Eternity.

I felt distinctly past any experience I'd ever had. And people came to me and understood. I was asked if I would begin to furnish my rooms. I was shown that because Heaven is eternal, these things would be with me a long time. And these things would blend in with what you read in Revelation. I was told if I developed a skill at this, like making a chair, an astonishing chair -  I might want to make this and share with others. This would be giving, sharing and enjoyable. I was astonished.

Here is our Bible Study:

The Bible does not contradict itself. Scripture supports Scripture. Jesus told us to turn the other cheek. He said forgive seven times seventy times. And Jesus said - in Proverbs - find Wisdom. Jesus said 2 Timothy 4:2  Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage--with great patience and careful instruction.

Jesus tells us in the passage - Heaven is Holy Rest. And He tells us we share in God's Rest in Jesus the Lord.

Life is tiring.

Matthew 11
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

Jesus is teaching us wisdom in the balance of not to the right, not to the left. Just as Jesus told us to turn the other cheek, He also said that sometimes we will rebuke and correct. This is a vast Truth.

Let's Look At This Great Adventure Jesus Speaks of!!!

John 9:4
As long as it is day, we must do the works of him who sent me. Night is coming, when no one can work.

Heaven is ...

Revelation 22:5
There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever.

Jesus tells us emphatically He will Dwell with Us. God is Love and God - - -

John 5:17
In his defense Jesus said to them, "My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I too am working."

2 Corinthians 5
We will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands. 2 We grow weary in our present bodies, and we long to put on our heavenly bodies like new clothing. 3 For we will put on heavenly bodies; we will not be spirits without bodies.

Jesus told us this!

John 21
11 So Simon Peter went aboard and dragged the net to the shore. There were 153 large fish, and yet the net hadn’t torn. 12 “Now come and have some breakfast!” Jesus said.


Luke 3:11a
The man who has two tunics is to share with


In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth,
 the gospel of your salvation--
 having also believed, 
you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise,
 who is given as a pledge of our inheritance, 
with a view to the redemption of God's own possession,

to the praise of His glory.


Father God, Heaven is at hand. Help my soul be an oasis to you. Let me push aside the status quo. Let my prayers reach into Your Heart and let Love guide us each day in Jesus Christ the Lord. Amen !

♔ Lord Jesus Saves

About Me

My photo
Email registry at bottom.! “All Scripture is inspired by God” (2 Timothy 3:16). Men “moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God” (2 Peter 1:21). The Holy Spirit carried men along, moving and guiding them as they wrote in their own words what God wanted them to say. The Bible is unique; comprised of 80 separate books, & written over a period of thousands of years by more than 40 writers with one Author, spanning the centuries, different states of peace & war & different situations in life. The Bible answers the question: of who is God, who is man & what can their relationship can be. Although the Bible was written on perishable material and copied by hand for many centuries, its accuracy is not in doubt, proven by Dead Sea Scrolls and papyrus from 2,000 years. The Bible has survived persecution & criticism to be read with great interest in each generation. The Bible gives witness to the greatness of the Creator. A loving Father concerned for all of his creation. With each verse of the bible witnessing to God is love and the multitude & vastness of His attributes. The Bible was written for you. <><
