Eternal Rest, Eternal Joy

I have everything that eternity has because I have eternity in everything. I’m not going to insult eternity by being occupied with time that limits eternity. If God wants to take time to reveal eternity, I will glory in eternity while I am waiting in time.

When I enter into God’s rest, I enter into the mind of God which rested from before the foundation of the world. When I enter into His rest, I cease from working and trying to define peace. Jesus Christ died for me. He was resurrected for me. He went to heaven and took me with Him positionally. He sent the Holy Spirit, and He lives inside of me. It’s eternal life through an eternal work by the eternal Spirit in an eternal body.

I have eternal joy because I’ve entered into an eternal redemption. I have an eternal purpose, given in grace for eternity. When I enter into His rest, I am a partaker of God’s glory for ever and ever.
