description: (hide)

God is the author of physical rest, as demonstrated by the human need to sleep once in every twenty-four hour period as well as the sanctified seventh day Sabbath providing spiritual rest and rejuvenation (Genesis 2:2-3; Exodus 20:8-11; Deuteronomy 5:12-15) intended for the entire human race in perpetuity. For the past 6,000 years, the entire human race has been disobeying the physical and spiritual laws of sleep and rest, leading to a cumulative sleep-debt which has shortened and deteriorated the quality of their lives, leading to untold pain and misery. God's people are not immune to the penalties, even if they break His laws in ignorance. God has promised healing His people, but only if they are willing to repent and quit breaking His laws. In Hebrews 4:1-11, God invites His called-out ones to enter His rest by faithfully keeping His commandments and avoiding a hardened heart of disobedience and rebellion. To those willing to meet God's requirements, Our Lord and Savior has declared "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest," adding "Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light" (Matthew 11:28-30).
