Hebrews 4:1 Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest.(and how does one enter into this rest?), any of you should seem to come short of it.

Hebrews 4:2 For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them, but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.
It wasn't profitable to them because they didn't really believe that what He was saying (the gospel) was true, so much so that they dropped God like a hot potato (Jeremiah 44:16,17) and they were like this because they didn't expect any good gifts from God. Why would they? They just didn't believe that God loved them or that God even cared, which is the attitude that would have allowed the gift of faith to become theirs. And after all, who wants to be around someone whom you believe doesn't care at all for you? So they kicked God out of their lives.
Hebrews 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.
Hebrews 4:3 For we which have believed do enter into rest.(notice it's not a physical sabbath keeping per se, Paul {who was Paul?} is here speaking about, but rather a spiritual rest entered through the gate of belief, for what good is it not to believe in that which is true? Paul is saying here that we are on Earth for awakening to the rest we already have, but don't yet know that. The 'rest' talked about in this verse is a rest resided in by belief and that rest is shown by believing that one was in that rest {or we could say, saved, as it does in 2Timothy 1:9} when the work of the plan of God was finished and it was finished before the multiverse was created; original word here for 'rest' is 'quietness' {what quietness?}; compare word 'rest' in verse 9, below), as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest.(original for."if they shall enter".is 'they shall not enter', as Hebrews 3:11 had said; and, original here again for 'rest' is 'quiet'; you enter the quiet in your meditation time; this is the 'His rest' talked of in Matthew 11:28,29, that is, you enter into His rest when one is as they say, 'in Christ' and you wouldn't be meditating and praying unless you believed God is real), although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.(original Greek for 'world' is 'kosmos' or all in the physical multiverse.

Everything was set up to benefit humanity, but one always has free choice to believe what God says or not to. 

So it's a stage for learning by humans. Learning what? Learning that although we were all saved before the world was here (2Timothy 1:9), just as a little baby has a saved life because of this parents care, but still has to learn things of life as it grows under that care, so we too.

The verse is telling us that all the multiverse continues to work as designed at that time by the plans of God. This involves the invisible, which until this century, few apart from those knowing the ancient scriptures in the Vedas, were ever clear in their minds about.

So, we all were destined to be on Earth at a time determined and all were in that rest when the plans of God were made. In the invisible there are no new created beings and the ones yet to be on Earth in the physical are not many. Even though God got angry with the ancient Israelites who didn't believe Him as shown by their constant carping and complaining to the point of God not allowing them.(1Corinthians 10:5).into the promised physical land after they came out of 400-430 years of Egyptian bondage, yet they are included with all humans in God's foundational works whereby all were saved even before being in the physical on Earth:.2Timothy 1:9.

"Any and all proclaimed fulfillment of scripture yet to come after the life, death, burial and resurrection of Christ should be considered nonsensical.(why?.John 19:30). How is it possible for any scripture, the Word of God, to be fulfilled outside of the life of Christ who was the Word and became flesh? God's word could only be and was, completely fulfilled after it became flesh and dwelt among us":.John 1:14 "And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth."....Michael Williams.

Hebrews 4:4 For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh.(word 'seventh' in this sentence, not in original, simply means 'a day').day from all his works.
Have a day of rest from your regular routine and do what it is that you like to do.
Hebrews 4:5 And in this place again.(Psalms 95:11), If entering into my rest.(original 'quiet').

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

Hebrews 4:7 Again, he limits a certain day.(or, at a certain time, as David also learned), saying in David, Today, after so long a time, as it is said, Today if you want to hear God's voice, harden not your hearts.
You can only hear someone if you're listening to what they may be saying, speaking here of giving attention to the true God in your life.

Stubbornness prevents inspiration.

Hebrews 4:8 For if Emmanuel had given them rest.(Emmanuel didn't give them rest by telling them to keep a physical sabbath day), then would he not afterward have spoken of another day.
This rest Emmanuel spoke of was a spiritual rest, a rest from the world of frustrations and heartaches we all go through when not in higher consciousness.
Hebrews 4:9 There remains therefore a rest to the people of God.
Hebrews 4:9 There remains therefore a rest.(original 'seventh day keeping Sabbath').to the people of God.(who are these?)

Verse is clearer from the original:."Leave behind.(Hebrews 6:1,2), separate therefor the seventh day keeping Sabbath.(the physical keeping as compared to the spiritual keeping of it, such as meditation where one enters this rest daily) for the people of God.".The antitype being looking forward to its fulfilment:.Revelation 20:4 "...and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years."

Hebrews 4:10 For he that is entered into his rest, he also has ceased from his own works, as God did from his.
Hebrews 4:10 For he that is entered into his rest.(original 'quiet'; what typified 'his rest'?.John 17:5), he also has ceased from his own works.(stop trying so hard to make your life go the way.you.want:.Proverbs 3:5; so cease from working on how you think your life should work out for you and simply benow in a higher consciousness and the works of the ego are no longer relevant) and any good works on Earth are finished:.John 17:4), as God did from his.

What does "as God did from his" mean? God quietly left the works He was doing because the physical reconstruction of the Earth was completed suitable for humanity and later Emmanuel came along to finish the work of the spiritual realm and now things are set for humanity to learn how to make things come into manifestation on the physical plane.

Hebrews 4:11 Let us labour.(original is 'endeavor'; decide, a decision).therefore to enter into that rest.(original 'quiet'), lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.
Implying that you enter into God's rest by belief, belief that God is in you. Like hello, what is more important?.Hebrews 3:18 "And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not?"

Numbers 32:11,12.

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick and powerful and sharper than any two edged 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.
Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God.(good to study the words of God).is quick and powerful and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividingasunder of soul and spirit and of the joints and marrow and is a discerner of the thoughts.(to bring to mind, to your attention; to help one find out what he is like:.Luke 2:35).and intents.(one's intents cause something to be brought to the mind).of the heart.
Hebrews 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.
Hebrews 4:13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest.(nothing hidden:.Mark 4:22).in his sight.(original is 'before' his sight), but all things are naked and opened.(word 'opened' is to make obvious; also, Job 34:21).unto the eyes.(God sees all).of him.('him' is number 846 in Strong's Concordance regarding the original Greek, a word that means curve back upon).with.(original 'unto').whom.(original 'which').we have to do.(original for this phrase is 'logos' meaning 'our words').

So, we could read the verse as 'Anything created is unseen until it is brought to manifestation by the word (your desire, your intent) curving back upon itself to initiate the creation process'.

Good to be open with God. He knows all anyhow?

Hebrews 4:14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Emmanuel the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.
That is, let us hold strongly in our hearts what it is that we believe.
Hebrews 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities.(Christ is compassionate), but was in all points tempted.(or, 'tried', as you would test out a vehicle, a horse, a snowblower, etc. to see if it is able to perform as you hope it will and so also, this is why we have life).like as we are, yet without sin.(what is sin?).
There is not one emotion/feeling that we have that is not known by Christ.
Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

Hebrews 5:2 Who can have compassion on the ignorant and on them that are out of the way.(out of the way of what? and why?), for that he himself also is compassed with infirmity.

Hebrews 5:4 And no man takes this honour unto himself, but he that is called of God, as was Aaron.
Comprised with.Barnes Notes:.In the Old Testament no one had a right to enter into the position of high priest unless he was eligible according to what God had prescribed back then. Conditions were fixed and definite laws applied in regard to the succession of a high priest. The Old Testament is now gone when it comes to the things regulated by the Mosaic Law. as the next two verses show.
Hebrews 5:5 So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest, but he that said unto him, You are my Son, today have I begotten you.
Christ was so much more than a high priest after the order of Melchizedek, this being the Old Testament spelling.
Hebrews 5:6 As he said also in another place.(Psalms 110:4), You are a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

Hebrews 5:7 Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death and was heard in that he feared;
Obviously it's not talking of a terror kind of fear.
Hebrews 5:8 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience.(?).by the things which he suffered;
Word 'suffered' means 'experience', original is 'to be affected or have been affected', 'to feel', 'have a sensible experience'; that is, to learn from the experiences of life:.Ephesiams 4:17-32. We'll all come to see that the way of the Creator (and what way is that?) is the best way for us. Christ knows that God the Father created us and knows it was God's plan that Christ would live and die for us:.1Peter 2:21.
Hebrews 5:9 And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that have learned to be like him;
Hebrews 5:9 And being made perfect.(perfect because He was of the Father and the Father is only love and so was he {1John 4:8-16}; being perfect doesn't mean there is nothing to learn:.Ephesians 3:20), he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that have learned to be like him.(to live a life aligned with God, as Christ did);

Original for 'obey' is 'of hearing', 'to listen', 'to hearken', that is, to respond to, to learn from:.Ephesians 4:20. The same original root word is in verse 11, just below and is translated 'hearing':.Luke 10:16 "He that hears you hears me..."; John 5:24; 8:47; 1John 4:5,6. It's a process of growing spiritually toward a reward.

Hebrews 5:10 Called by God to be a high priest after the order of Melchisedec.

Hebrews 5:11 Of whom we have many things to say and hard to be uttered, seeing you are dull of hearing.
They were getting information overload because they as yet hadn't taken contemplation time in order to mentally.digest the spiritual things earlier said, as the next verse shows and this clouded their alertness.

2Peter 3:16; John 16:12.

Hebrews 5:12 For when for the time you ought to be teachers, you have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God.(oracles are the words of the Creator; they just didn't 'get it' the first time).and are become such as have need of milk and not of strong meat.
They weren't really spiritual to any effective degree as they hadn't progressed from the baby stage.
Hebrews 5:13 For every one that uses milk.(still relying on mother's milk and being spoon fed, unable yet to progress on their own:.1John 2:12-14).is unskilful in the word of righteousness.(not quite sure yet what's right or wrong), for he is a babe.

Hebrews 5:14 But strong meat belongs to them that are of full age.(1John 2:12-14), even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern.both good and evil.
That is, one doesn't drift through life, making his or her life meaningless, but uses his or her mind to keep the self in order:.1Corinthians 9:26,27. He or she then has a foundation of confidence:.Hebrews 3:6. But, some still today seem to need ceremony to validate their spiritual standing. Paul advised them to be free of such things:.Hebrews 5:14-6:3. And John too:.1John 4:4.

Original Greek for this phrase is 'thoroughly analyze as to the end result of each course of action that may be important for consideration', that is, concerning your character

People do bad things and also do good things, but those who are what's called evil have gone to the far side of bad and then fall off, making it difficult for themselves to believe they can return: 1Timothy 4:2.

Evil is when one is in a fixed mind state where his or her raison d'être is doing evil, harm to self and/or another in some way. Being bad is when you, in your own little world, are not out to permanently harm another and you also want to do good to them at time, so you think to do bad things like these examples.

Another example;.you, as thoroughly as you can, analyze what drugs or whatever other negatives you know about and/or those you come across and see the results of those ways in the lives of others and then you make a decision based on what you now know, that you will or will not use drugs, alcohol, eat genetically modified 'frankenfood', vaccinations, etc. or to what degree that you will. Learn from the life you are living and observe others. learn!.Ecclesiastes 1:13.

Hebrews 5:14 But strong meat belongs to them that are of full age.("of full age" means mature ones; original Greek is 'in a habit of perfection' or, they know they are perfect in Creator's eyes and that, from before the universe was formed:.2Timothy 1:9), even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised.(original Greek means 'to base your judgments on what you personally experience in life':.Romans 14:22).to discern.(original is 'to separate', 'make a distinction', 'discriminate', 'to prefer', 'to learn by discrimination', 'to try', 'decide', 'determine', 'judge').between good and evil.(original Greek for this phrase is 'thoroughly analyze as to the end result of each course of action that may be important for character consideration'.

That is,.you may have to live the good and live the bad to come to know which is which, if you are just not sure, perhaps parents not having taught you about what's good and what's evil. Live the questions if you have to, as we all are here to learn, but have enough wisdom (learn what what wisdom is; do you really know?) to learn quickly and learning quickly can be done.

Don't sell yourself short; see.The Grand Self.movie and go from there. Also have enough wisdom to learn from observing the lives of others, so that your life will smooth out and go better for you from now on. Best if you can learn from mistakes of others so you don't make the same ones to your hurt. Do this by observing life and learning from videos and books (here's one), talking with others, etc. Bob Proctor's 58 years of experience can help you here. Be sure to take time to to meditate because it's where insight is automatically added to your daily life. Be wise, not foolish, learn, learn, learn. Envisioning directs the power of God in you to effectively produce things in life and in the lives of others. It works both ways, for good or evil. Choose good

Solomon did and here's what his conclusions were; but live.what is you (*) from your heart and.learn, learn, learn from your life, because you do reap what you sow. Things (what things?) are counted for or against you (*). Learn from the lives of others, such as you will from the movie The Grand Self and from Bob Proctor, so that you and the things concerning you continually improve. Learn from the life of ancient Solomon. Be of higher consciousness than those who leave off using the gift of imagination, the gift of being able to see mentally. Use this gift with wisdom, for it's better to imagine the results of your actions with wisdom than to experience the results of them through the hard knocks of life, for we do reap what we sow and with this in mind, see what you could be sowing. See the results of actions before you take action. Think!

Better to learn these things in the mind using wisdom and imagination and from the errors of others, than by the hard knocks of life and all this since man chose one of two trees (Genesis 2:9) which he still is doing today. Seeing results of one's course.before taking action is wisdom and keeps you from trouble. Master these 4 things quickly to keep you from trouble. Learn to do good.

Hebrews 6:1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ let us.go on unto perfection, not laying again.the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God,
Hebrews 6:1 Therefore leaving the principles.(original 'beginnings'; they were stuck at the beginnings of spiritual growth and this caused them to retrogress as Hebrews 5:12 shows).of the 'doctrine of Christ'.(2John 1:9).let us.go on unto perfection.(in other words, don't get hung up on all these things as the ancient Sadducees did on resurrecting and avoid those using the name of Christ in propagating some religious body of ideas:.Luke 17:23; 21:8), not laying again the foundation of repentance.(asking for forgiveness for wrongs one believes he or she did; all that stuff is finished in Christ; 'not laying again' because, in Christ there is no need to, why?).from dead works.(it's saying to move onto the things of the heart {what the New Testament is all about} and away from the foundational precept of repentence {which means one keeps reminding God that he's sinned requiring a renewal sacrament every so often {even though God in Emmanuel [2Corinthians 5:19] took care of all that and God's word on it has been committed to us:.1Timothy 6:20}; you may have already decided to change to the road of higher consciousness, so you don't have to decide this all over again, instead, get on with life:.Acts 20:21; Mark 1:15, because once the foundation is built where once one has decided to change from his ego level and head toward a higher consciousness, there is no need to start the whole process over again, because words become you as you spiritually grow: John 1:14; some people have not changed from their hateful, resentful, selfish, stubborn, unhelpful and ungiving ways and yet go to church figuring, 'I'm ok, God will forgive me', not realizing that the Creator has already forgiven them and they should now be learning about righteousness, thereby moving on to perfection of spirit and expressing high consciousness things in life:.1Corinthians 3:11;.Ephesians 2:20).and of faith toward God.

Why would you again need faith toward God, if God is in you, unless you believed He wasn't in you? Why would the great apostle Paul advise to leave off faith toward God? if it was not so that he comprehended and so should we, that it was unnecessary to have faith toward something you already have in you:.John 17:26. Paul is saying, why bother? Paul's comprehension was that of, God looks on the heart not the physical ceremonies and accouterments..(?)

Hebrews 6:2 Of the doctrine of baptisms and of laying on of hands and of resurrection of the dead and of eternal judgment.
Hebrews 6:2 Of the doctrine of baptisms and of laying on of hands.(Acts 8:18,19).and of resurrection of the dead.(because the fact of the resurrection was now a fait accompli and means your resurrection too, see the book by Grigori Grabovoi; it was time to move away from the importance it had possessed up until this time and it's now time to move into that which is relevant; it was time to move on from this doctrine as well as the others he mentions and into what we have today).and of eternal judgment.

Paul (who was Paul?) is saying 'Let's go onward and away from such doctrines as these and into what really counts. And what really counts is each individual getting the highest place in God's kingdom that he and she would be perfectly suited for and to do this, whether he or she is alive on Earth or has passed on, he or she is still the character they have become. And they still have opportunity to remove any limitations they have acquired in their life that still could be dogging them. One way to do this on Earth is to learn from someone who found an important key to eliminating such limitations. Those having passed on also need this key, because they are still growing where they are. This key can be viewed in the groundbreaking helpful movie.The Grand Self. In it it talks about the key to overcoming anything. It's really so simple.

Eternal judgments are simply the laws for intending how the multiverse and all in it including us would function properly. These are spiritual principles and as such, are eternal. An eternal judgment is one that is absolute, such as when the time for humanity is over and we're into the, now invisible to us, realm of spirit, where there is time no longer and the time for humans is over. What are some of the Creator's eternal judgments? Genesis 8:22; Galatians 6:7,8. We all have been already judged. Now it's time to put the Christmas/Lent/Easter, Valentines, Halloween, etc. stuff in its proper place, that of just holidays for family and friends gathering and let's get on into perfection (Matthew 5:48) into what's called the circumcision of the heart, the inward individual.

Hebrews 6:3 And this will we do, if God permit.
Hebrews 6:3 And this will we do, if God permit.

So, when would God's 'permission', as it were, be on this point, if not when an individual is fully persuaded in his or her own mind about it?.Romans 14:1-8

Paul references verse 9 below here in this regard. Original for word 'permit' means 'if we are in a position to'; that is, if we are mentally and emotionally able to accept the drastic changes ushered in by the new age of the Infinite One for humanity, the changes that are of the things of the spirit and Paul.(who was Paul?).said this because of what he comprehended from:.Romans 8:15 "For you have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father." Galatians 4:6 "And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father."

Paul knew just how delicate this was for some people back then:.Romans 14:22,23 "Have you faith? Have it to yourself before God. Happy is he that condemns not himself in that thing which he allows. And he that doubts is damned.(meaning he has gone against his conscience, he is unsure, his mind is in a twin state:.James 1:8).if he eat, because he eats not of faith, for whatsoever is not of faith is sin."

And just what is 'sin'?

Hebrews 6:4 For it is impossible.(?).for those who were once enlightened and have tasted of the heavenly gift and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost,

Hebrews 6:5 And have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the world to come.
Which things were not available until Christ came, making possible for His nature of love to also be our nature.
Hebrews 6:6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance, seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh and put him to an open shame.
Hebrews 6:6 If they shall fall away.(you could go away from God, but God would never leave you, you always have free choice:.Hebrews 13:5 "...for he has said, I will never leave you, nor forsake you.".And.3:6,12-14, but he never overrides you either, so what if you leave God? How not to fall away:.Hebrews 10:26-29), to renew them again unto repentance.(why? because Emmanuel's sacrifice was good once for all time for all people and see Hebrews 6:1,2 above), seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh.(it would be like crucifying Him every time you noticed a wrong you committed and this would be a slight, as crucifying Him again would have been totally unnecessary and a mockery of His life and death, where He died once for all. It's talking about a frame of mind where a person just hasn't as yet come to believing that in Christ he or she is pure and holy in spirit, even if sin still dogs him or her in daily life).and put him to an open shame..(?).(*)
Hebrews 6:7 For the earth which drinks in the rain that comes oft upon it and brings forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receives blessing from God.

Hebrews 6:8 But that which bears thorns and briers is rejected and is nigh unto cursing, whose end is to be burned.

Hebrews 6:9 But beloved, we are persuaded better things of you and things that accompany salvation, though we thus speak.
Hebrews 11:16.
Hebrews 6:10 For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which you have showed toward his name, in that you have ministered to the saints and continue to do so.
What work and labour of love is Hebrews 6:10 talking about?.Ezekiel 9:4 "And the Lord said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof."

So, what's He going to do if He's keeping in mind the good you've done?)

Hebrews 6:11 And we desire that every one of you do show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end.
The 'end' meaning what? verse 16 below.
Hebrews 6:12 That you be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

Hebrews 6:13 For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself,

Hebrews 6:14 Saying, Surely blessing I will bless you and multiplying I will multiply thee.

Hebrews 6:15 And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise.(1John 2:25)

Hebrews 6:16 For men verily swear by the greater and an oath for confirmation is to them an end of all strife.

Hebrews 6:17 Wherein God, willing more abundantly to show unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath.

Hebrews 6:18 That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong.consolation, who have fled for refuge.(where to?.Psalms 46:10,11; where from? how?.Matthew 11:27).to lay hold upon the hope set before us..
How do we lay hold of this hope?
Hebrews 6:19 Which hope.(Colossians 1:27).we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast and which enters into that within the veil.
In God we are stable.

What does this veil mean? How do we do away with this blinding?.2Corinthians 3:16. What was within the veil?

Hebrews 6:20.Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Emmanuel, made an high priest forever after the order of Melchisedec.
