And to whom did He swear that they should not enter His rest, but to those who disobeyed [who had not listened to His word and who refused to be compliant or be persuaded]?
So we see that they were not able to enter [into His rest], because of their unwillingness to adhere to and trust in and rely on the Almighty [unbelief had shut them out]. [Num 14:1-35]
For the Almighty’s Word that He speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart.
And not a creature exists that is concealed from His sight, but all things are open and exposed, naked and defenseless to the eyes of Him with Whom we have to do.
The Word That You Speak To Me Now? …
Those are the same words I have read and appropriated them with my own understanding in the many years past of my religious living, but!
- The words remained powerless to cut through me. Why?
- Because I had to go through the molding process as per Your written words. Quote:
Romans 8:28-30 AMPC+
We are assured and know that [the Almighty being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love Him and are called according to [His] design and purpose.
For those whom He foreknew [of whom He was aware and loved beforehand], He also destined from the beginning [foreordaining them] to be molded into the image of His Son [and share inwardly His likeness], that He might become the firstborn among many brethren.
And those whom He thus foreordained, He also called; and those whom He called, He also justified (acquitted, made righteous, putting them into right standing with Himself). And those whom He justified, He also glorified [raising them to a heavenly dignity and condition or state of being].
Ha! That Last Sentence? The Reality Of My Crest …

You have raised me to a heavenly dignity and condition or state of being. Wow! That’s Your exact words to me. Quote:
“O but that all My children open their eyes to see what My intent be for your suffering. Your suffering? My discipline to lift you up to be what you were meant to be.
