Perhaps if we had real churches we would have real preachers. A real preacher would preach the Law to the oppressor and Liberty to the people.

Brother Scott — with tongue firmly in cheek — gives quick perspective with his Reasons Why I Cannot Do Without the “501c3” Status

To be recognized as a legitimate church or ministry the government requires that we be “501c3” (dependent)

Being “501c3” is the way it must be done in this country and since the early Roman Catholic Church some 1650 years ago—after all the Bible does says to “render unto Caesar” and to “honor the king” and also “always submit to the authorities”

The IRS doesn’t ask that much of me for the benefit, just that the church be incorporated with the governor as the Vice-Head and the IRS Commissioner as the Head of the church and not Jesus Christ

We like being underwritten by the US Government and thereby subsidized through the 501c3 spiritual and political bondage program

Being able to say “We are 501c3…” gives our ministry credibility and opens doors that God cannot

We are able to accept other donations such as food, clothes, vehicles, real estate when we have the tax exempt status

We must have the ability to issue tax-deductible receipts in order for people and businesses to support this church or ministry

People will not give as much if they cannot deduct it on their taxes

The Board is afraid of losing its biggest supporters if we do not have “tax-exempt” status and of being personally sued without the non-profit incorporation

All the strings that are attached by 501c3 make me feel secure

I do not have faith strong enough to trust God to be my Source instead of man’s salary

(I am not genuinely called to the ministry by God and therefore He will not support me)

I need a formal benefits program that only a 501c3 can provide (sorry God)

I do not believe I can trust God to provide for all of my needs

I like hiding behind 501c3 rules regarding political positions and therefore am justified in not preaching against the many sins in and out of the church

If not in a 501c3 group I would be in an extremely small minority of Christian ministers and I do not like being in a minority of anything

I would be embarrassed to explain why we are not 501c3 when asked by other Christians, ministers, or secular organizations to do so

Richard Hoskins, in the Hoskins Report 6/98 outlined 29 IRS regulations ertaining to 501(c)(3) churches:

1. Church must be incorporated.

2. Church must have a «recognized» creed and IRS approved form of worship. (Who does the approving and accepts the «form» is not covered in the regulations)

3. The church must have a definite and distinct ecclesiastical hierarchical government. (?)

4. The church must have an IRS approved formal «code» of doctrine and discipline. (Type and what discipline are not identified in IRS regs)

5. It must be a denomination with a distinct religious history. (?)

6. Must have «ordained» ministers. (?)

7. Ministers must have been educated in state accredited colleges. (More opportunity for PC indoctrination of ministers)

8. Must be neutral on political issues. (Helps explain why churches never preach against the sins and blasphemies of government officials, despite blatant violations of the Law of God)

9. Must have a «tax exempt» status issued by the IRS.

10. Must pay a fee to the IRS for this «tax exempt» status.

11. Must be engaged in furthering exclusively public purposes. (?)

12. The church cannot bar its services to the public. (?)

13. The pastor must answer to the IRS as to the daily activities of the church.

14. The IRS must be privy to all financial transactions, including sources, donors, expenditures, and if cash is used, a possible association with money-laundering is suspected.

15. Books and records must always be available.

16. The Pastor must inform the IRS of the names of all donors.

17. Gifts to missionaries and evangelists exceeding $600 requires filing form 1099.

18. The church may use only IRS approved methods of fund raising.

19. The Pastor will be called to account by the IRS over any stand taken against the tax system. 501(c)(3) requires church pastors to preach on taxpaying. (Ever notice how pastors preach a sermon about ‘rendering unto Caesar’ on the Sunday before April 15th?)

20. Must submit names of all church workers, down to and including maintenance people.

21. Must give unlimited submission to civil magistrates pertaining to all laws — federal, state and local — including public policy. (Judeo-Christian clergy are more obedient to man’s government than to the Royal Law of God)

22. The church must advocate and promote racial integration.

23. Must not publicly oppose licensing of churches.

24. May not engage in political activities opposing pornography. (Now you can see why there are no sermons on this)

25. May not support legislation saying that children belong to parents and not the state.

26. May not form a political action committee or actively support legislation opposing lotteries and gambling.

27. May not advocate support of the U.S. or State constitutions as the supreme law of the land. (Helps explain why our Judeo-Christian pastors do not speak out)

28. May not participate in opposing the school system. (As they may find that God has been removed)

29. May not publicly declare that the church is to obey God rather then man’s government.

NOTE: The Apostle Paul Was A Minister To Gentile Churches. (Peter was not)

Acts 1:15-26 And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples, and said, (the number of names together were about an hundred and twenty,) Men and brethren, this scripture must needs have been fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost by the mouth of David spake before concerning Judas, which was guide to them that took Jesus. For he was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this ministry. Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels Gushed out. And it was known unto all the dwellers at Jerusalem; insomuch as that field is called in their proper tongue, Aceldama, that is to say, The field of blood. For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell therein: and his bishoprick let another take. Wherefore of these men which have companied with us all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us, beginning from the baptism of John, unto that same day that He was taken up from us, must one be ordained to be a witness with us of His resurrection. And they appointed two, Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias. And they prayed, and said, Thou, Lord, which knowest the hearts of all men, shew whether of these two thou hast chosen, That he may take part of THIS MINISTRY AND APOSTLESHIP, from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place. And they gave forth their lots; and the lot fell upon MATTHIAS; and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.

Revelation 21:14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the TWELVE APOSTLES OF THE LAMB.

NOTE: To qualify for the ORIGINAL MINISTRY AND APOSTLESHIP, (The twelve Apostles of the Lamb) the apostles had to have been in the company of the Apostles during the entire ministry of The Lord Jesus Christ beginning with the BAPTISM OF JOHN THE BAPTIST.

(They had to have been baptized by John the Baptist). They had to have been a witness of the RESURRECTION and ASCENSION of The Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

I Timothy 1:1 Paul, AN APOSTLE OF JESUS CHRIST by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope; Unto Timothy, my own son in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord.

II Timothy 2:1 Paul, AN APOSTLE OF JESUS CHRIST by the will of God, according to the promise of life which is in Christ Jesus, To Timothy, my dearly beloved son: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.

QUESTION: The Apostle Paul DID NOT qualify as one of the ORIGINAL Apostles but was called, and indeed was, an Apostle; what were the callings of HIS APOSTLESHIP?

I Timothy 2:1-7 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; WHO WILL HAVE ALL MEN TO BE SAVED, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. For there is ONE GOD and ONE MEDIATOR between God and men, the MAN CHRIST JESUS; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. Whereunto I am ordained a PREACHER, and AN APOSTLE, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a TEACHER OF THE GENTILES in faith and verity.

Matthew 16:13-20 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the SON OF THE LIVING GOD. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon THIS ROCK I will build MY CHURCH; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that HE WAS JESUS THE CHRIST.

QUESTION: When Jesus Christ made the statement, «UPON THIS ROCK I WILL BUILD MY CHURCH,» to what or to whom was he pointing.

Deuteronomy 32:1-4 GIVE ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth. My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass: Because I will publish the name of the Lord: ascribe ye greatness unto our God. HE IS THE ROCK, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.

II Samuel 22:31-32 As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him. For who is God, save the LORD? and who is a rock, save our God?

Psalms 28:1-4 UNTO thee will I cry, O Lord MY ROCK; be not silent to me: lest, if thou be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit. Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto thee, when I lift up my hands toward thy holy oracle. Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, which speak peace to their neighbours, but mischief is in their hearts. Give them according to their deeds, and according to the wickedness of their endeavours: give them after the work of their hands; render to them their desert.

Psalms 118:22-23 The stone which the builders refused is become THE HEAD STONE of the corner. This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvellous in our eyes.

Isaiah 28:16 Therefore thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation A STONE, A TRIED STONE, A PRECIOUS CORNER STONE, a SURE FOUNDATION; he that believeth shall not make haste.

Acts 4:10-12 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. THIS IS THE STONE which was set at nought of you builders which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

I Corinthians 10:1-6 MOREOVER, brethren, I would NOT that ye should be IGNORANT, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; And did all eat the same spiritual meat; And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that SPIRITUAL ROCK that followed them: AND THAT ROCK WAS CHRIST. But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness. Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.

The Marks Of A New Testament Church:

1) Its Head and Founder — Christ

He is the law-giver; the Church is only the executive.

Matthew 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock (pointing to Himself) I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

Colossians 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

2) Its only rule of faith and practice is the Bible.

II Timothy 3:15-17 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness; That the the man of God may be perfect throughly furnished unto all good works.

3) Its name is Church or Churches.

Matthew 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou are Peter, and upon this rock (pointing to Himself) I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

Revelation 22:16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

4) Its polity is congregational — all members are equal.

Matthew 20:24-28 And when the ten heard it, they were moved with indignation against the two brethren. but Jesus called them unto him, and said, Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them. But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your servant: Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

Matthew 23:5-12 But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments, And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi. But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, ever Christ; and all ye are brethren. And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ. But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.

Matthew 3:1-2 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Mark 1:14-15 Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

Matthew 4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

NOTE: There are two seperate kingdoms noted in the above verses. One is a spiritual kingdom (Kingdom of God) and one is a political kingdom (Kingdom of Heaven).

1) The Kingdom of God is a Spiritual Kingdom into which you must be born (second birth).

2) The Kingdom of Heaven is a Physical Kingdom that will be on this earth when Christ Jesus returns to this world. His kingdom will last for 1,000 years on this very earth. The 1,000 year period is referred to as the Millennial Reign of Christ.

The word Millennium is a Latin word: mil = one thousand and annum = year. Mil Annum = one thousand years = Millennium.

Millennial reign of Christ = the one thousand year reign of Christ on this very earth.

Christ comes back just before the Millennium.

John 4:24 God is a Spirit; and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

NOTE: Notice that the KINGDOM OF GOD is a spiritual kingdom whereas the KINGDOM OF HEAVEN is a literal physical visible kingdom that WILL COME TO THIS VERY EARTH IN THE FUTURE.

The «Kingdom of God» was only preached AFTER the time of John the Baptist.

Luke 16:16 The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the KINGDOM OF GOD is preached, and every man presseth into it.

The «Kingdom of God» is entered by the new birth.

John 3:3-5 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, EXCEPT A MAN BE BORN AGAIN, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

The «Kingdom of God» must be entered by simple child-like faith.

Mark 10:13-15 And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them. But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.

It is very hard for the wealthy to enter the «Kingdom of God.»

Matthew 19:23-24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

The «Kingdom of God» is within a born again believer.

Luke 17:20-21 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God IS WITHIN YOU.

Romans 14:17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

The «Kingdom of God» is connected with God’s righteousness and should be sought before any physical needs.

Matthew 6:31-33 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

People who recognize themselves as sinners will enter the «Kingdom of God» before the self-righteous.

Matthew 21:28-31 But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard. He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went. And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not. Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you.

NOTE: What follows is the order in which the Gentile Kingdoms will reign on this earth.

Daniel 2:1-3 And in the second year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar Nebuchhadnezzar dreamed dreams, wherewith his spirit was troubled, and his sleep brake from him. Then the king commanded to call the magicians, and the astrologers, and the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans, for to shew the king his dreams. So they came and stood before him. And the king said unto them, I have dreamed a dream, and my spirit was troubled to know the dream.

Daniel 2:6 But if ye shew the dream, and the interpretation thereof, ye shall receive of me gifts and rewards and great honour: therefore shew me the dream, and the interpretation thereof.

Daniel 2:17-20 Then Daniel went to his house, and made the thing known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions: That they would desire mercies of the God of heaven concerning this secret; that Daniel and his fellows should not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon. Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision, Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven.

Daniel 2:28 But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days, Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these;

Daniel 2:31-35 Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible. This image’s head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass, His legs of iron, his feet part iron and part of clay. Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became life the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.

Hebrews 1:1-4 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high: Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.

NOTE: Notice that the purpose or the theme of the book of Hebrews is to show that we are to be an heir and receive an inheritance but the inheritance is conditional. In order to have an inheritance we must FIRST be a son. It is impossible for a Son to lose his Sonship but a Son can certainly lose his inheritance.

Romans 8:16-17 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs;

heirs of God,

and joint-heirs with Christ;

If so be that WE SUFFER WITH HIM,

that we may be also glorified together.

John 1:12-13 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

The Inheritances Of God’s Sons!

I. The inheritance of Adam was The World until he fell.

Luke 3:38 Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God.

NOTE: Adam lost his inheritance.

Hebrews 2:6-8 But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man that thou visitest him? Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands: Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him.

Psalms 8:1-9 O LORD, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens. Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger. When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet: All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field; The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas. O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!

Isaiah 9:6-7 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given:

and THE GOVERNMENT shall be upon his shoulder:

and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, THE PRINCE OF PEACE.

Of the increase of HIS GOVERNMENT and peace there shall be no end,


to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever.

The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

Luke 1:30-33 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.

He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:

And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.

QUESTION: What is meant by the term «Millennium» or «Millennial Reign of Christ?»

NOTE: There is a time clearly prophesied in Scripture where Jesus Christ will return to this earth (Second Advent) and He will rule and reign for 1,000 years. The kingdoms of this earth will have 1000 years of peace under His rule. This 1,000 year period will follow a 6,000 years period where man was basically allowed to govern himself and work out his own ideas and plans which, of course, is ending in total chaos.

Matthew 13:36-43: Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field. He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; The enemy that sowed them is the devil;

the harvest is the end of the world;

and the reapers are the angels. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in THE KINGDOM of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

I Corinthians 1:22 For the Jews REQUIRE A SIGN, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:

Nehemiah 9:13-14 Thou camest down also upon mount Sinai, and spakest with them from heaven, and gavest them right judgments, and true laws, good statutes and commandments: And madest known unto them thy holy sabbath, and commandedst them precepts, statutes, and laws, by the hand of Moses thy servant:

Ezekiel 20:10-12 Wherefore I caused them to go forth out of the land of Egypt, and brought them into the wilderness. And I gave them my statutes, and shewed them my judgments, which if a man do, he shall even live in them.

Moreover also I gave them MY SABBATHS,

to be a SIGN between ME and THEM,

that they might know that I am the LORD that sanctify them.

Ezekiel 20:19-20 I am the LORD your God; walk in my statutes, and keep my judgments, and do them;

And hallow MY SABBATHS;

and they shall be A SIGN between ME and YOU, that ye may know that I am the LORD your God.

Psalms 132:13-14 For the LORD hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his habitation. This is my rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it.

Psalms 122:6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.

Psalms 68:16 Why leap ye, ye high hills? this is the hill which God desireth to dwell in; yea, the LORD will dwell in it for ever.

Psalms 2:6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.

Hebrews 4:6-11 Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief: Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts. For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day. There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.
Let us labour therefore to enter into
lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

QUESTION: To what is «THAT REST» in Hebrews 4:11 making reference?

God works by SEVENS

There are only Seven notes on a piano.
There are only Seven colors.

The book of Revelations has:

Seven Churches
Seven Vials
Seven Trumpets
Seven Angels
Seven Personages
Seven Seals
