Hebrews 4:11

Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience. Hebrews 4:11

The author has shown that the promised rest of God is yet future for the Hebrew people. In verse 4:9, he has stated that there is a Sabbath-rest which is yet available for the people of God.Read the rest

For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His. Hebrews 4:10

The words of this verse are set against the words of verse 4:9. There it said, “There remains therefore a rest for the people of God.” It was established in that commentary that the “people of God,” in the appropriate context, is specifically speaking of the Jewish people.Read the rest

There remains therefore a rest for the people of God. Hebrews 4:9

The same word translated in verse 4:6 as “remains” is used again here. There it said, “Since it therefore remains that some must enter it.” This was speaking of God’s rest. Now the author clearly and concisely states what he has so methodically been building up to by saying, “There remains therefore.” The author, under inspiration of the Holy Spirit, says unambiguously that the day, called Today, still allows for obtaining what was once denied, which is “a rest for the people of God.” Further, as Charles Ellicott says, “It is tacitly assumed that no subsequent fulfillment has altered the relation of the promise.”

As noted in the comments of verse 4:6, what this means is “that which was available in past times still remains available.” Because it is promised, and because the promise was not laid hold of, the promise remains unappropriated.Read the rest

For if Joshua had given them rest, then He would not afterward have spoken of another day. Hebrews 4:8

The author speaks now of Joshua son of Nun who succeeded Moses, and who led Israel across the Jordan and into Canaan. There was a rest promised to Israel which was not attained, despite their having entered the Promised Land.Read the rest

…again He designates a certain day, saying in David, “Today,” after such a long time, as it has been said:
Today, if you will hear His voice,
Do not harden your hearts.”
Hebrews 4:7

The author continues his logical presentation of the sequence of events leading up to the rest which is promised to Israel.Read the rest
