Luk 10:19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
Jesus said to them, “I saw Satan falling like lightning from the sky.
He is the enemy, but know that I have given you more power than he has.
I have given you power to crush his snakes and scorpions under your feet. Nothing will hurt you.
Yes, even the spirits obey you. And you can be happy, not because you have this power, but because your names are written in heaven.”
Joh 4:14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
Joh 4:14 But anyone who drinks the water I give will never be thirsty again. The water I give people will be like a spring flowing inside them. It will bring them eternal life.”
Isa 14:3 At the time, when the LORD gives you rest from your suffering, turmoil, and the cruel bondage which they forced you to serve,
Isa 14:4 you will lift up this song of mockery against the king of Babylon: “How the oppressor has come to an end! How the attacker has ceased!
Psa 31:19 Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men!
LORD, I am praying to you. Don’t let me be disappointed. The wicked are the ones who should be disappointed. Let them go to the grave in silence.
Those evil people brag and tell lies about those who do right. They are so proud now, but their lying lips will be silent.
Lord, you have hidden away many wonderful things for your followers. You have done so many good things for those who trust in you. You have blessed them so that all the world can see.
Others make plans to hurt them. They say such bad things about them. But you hide your people in your shelter and protect them.
Heb 4:9 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.
So we see that they were not allowed to enter and have God’s rest, because they did not believe.
And we still have the promise that God gave those people. That promise is that we can enter his place of rest. So we should be very careful that none of you fails to get that promise.
Yes, the good news about it was told to us just as it was to them. But the message they heard did not help them. They heard it but did not accept it with faith.
This shows that the seventh-day rest for God’s people is still to come.
So let us try as hard as we can to enter God’s place of rest. We must try hard so that none of us will be lost by following the example of those who refused to obey God.
