10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign and standard of the people; the Gentiles shall seek it, and his rest shall be glorious.4
15 For thus says the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel: "In repentance and rest you are saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength;2 and you would not do it."
17 And the fruit (effect) of righteousness will be peace, and the effect of righteousness is quietness and confident trust (unquestionable assurance) forever. [From the Word of the Lord within: "Keep seeking peace; great will be your peace if you continue faithfully. There is a blessing to make the cessation of the mind permanent. Live in peace forever. You must go on waiting, watching, and listening; then our hearts will be quiet by grace. You will receive a new heart and mind. Grow up into the mind of Christ, from which all good thoughts proceed."]
18 And my people will dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places,
16 Thus says the Lord, "Stand in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk in it, and you shall find rest for your souls. But they said, 'We will not walk in it.'
|Matthew 11:28-29 |
28 Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy burdened, and I will give you rest.2 [Come — not to sect services that claim He is in their building, not to prayer meetings, not to altar calls, not to read the Bible; Jesus even said that studying the scriptures is not coming to Him. John 5:39-40. We must go directly to Him, by sitting in humble silence as we wait on Him, listening for His voiced commands and teachings. Come all of you who labor against sin, all who are heavy burdened with your sins, and He will destroy the sins in your heart; and then you will be at rest.]
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am meek and lowly in heart, and [then] you will find rest for your souls.3 [Learn from Him directly speaking to you, not reading about Him, or listening to other people talk about Him. The rest is to cease from your own dead works to then be completely directed by the Lord in what to do and what to say. But Christianity is at rest from guilt of their continued sinning, licensed by their false, so-called grace; so, "Arise and depart, for this is not the rest. Because it is defiled, it shall destroy you, even with a grievous destruction." Mic 2:10.]
