Our Sabbath Rest Part -1 (Andrew Wommack)
Doesn’t Hebrews 4 mean Jesus is our Sabbath rest?
Jesus cannot give us physical rest. We get this rest by keeping the Sabbath as God Commanded, not how we decide is acceptable. The proponents typically use the passage below but usually stop before verse nine. Speaking of the destruction of the temple in 70 A. Matthew Why would you need to worry about physically fleeing on the Sabbath if it was just resting in Jesus? The following facts prove the Sabbath does remain a physically rest and that the excuse Jesus is our Sabbath rest is just one more fallacy from our adversary.

Yesterday, which was the seventh day of the week, my wife and I attended a Bar Mitzvah service for a Jewish neighbor lad, to hear him conduct the service much as a rabbi would. He read, for the first time, from the scrolls of the Torah, the first five books of Moses.
