The Yoke Of Christ

"11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 11:30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden [see Christianos] is light" (Matthew 11:28-30 KJV) is a promise made by Jesus Christ, not of eternal idleness (which is nothing more than idol-ness of self), but a rest from the heavy burden of living in a sinful world, after the days of labour of this life (see Travail to understand how Spiritual Conception is a growth toward a new life) are completed.

"Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief"

Salvation is about the Deliverance of God's people to a place of righteous rest. But salvation requires effort to live according to the teachings of Christ. "4:1 Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it" (Hebrews 4:1 KJV; see When Will You Be Judged?).

The Ten Commandments

"4:1 Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it [see also Could Christ Return Tonight?]. 4:2 For unto us was the gospel preached [see The Gospel of The Kingdom of God], as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it. 4:3 For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.

4:4 For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works [see Christ The Creator]. 4:5 And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest.

4:6 Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief: 4:7 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.

4:8 For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day. 4:9 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. 4:10 For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works [see Works Means Obedience], as God did from his. 4:11 Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart [see Glass Houses]. 4:13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do."

4:14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens [see The Ancient of Days], Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin [see Could Jesus Have Sinned?]. 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy [see Christ's Mercy Seat], and find grace to help in time of need." (Hebrews 4:1-16 KJV)
