The Lamb Of God

The most significant expression of the character of God is the way in which He keeps His promise made to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob while accompanying their ungrateful and rebellious descendence. The book of Deuteronomy recounts a conversation between Adonai and His prophet, Moses.

Our Lord tenderly reveals to His servant that “after your death, the people will abandon me and worship the Gods of the Egyptians.”
The Lord is aware of the conditions of the heart and their lack of faith in the unseen God, who brought them out of slavery and subjugation; this is why the people wanted their familiar gods.

Amazingly, the God who answers to no one finds Himself bound to His promises. A promise that was so binding between Adonai (God of Israel and the patriarchs) left the Lord without a choice, the thought of withdrawing Himself from the commitment made between He and Abraham was out of the question. More importantly, if the sincerity of God’s Word dissipated by a fraction, then the integrity of all Creation would become fractured resulting in cosmic chaos.

So the Holy One becomes attached to a rebellious and sinful people by a promise that was stronger than an adhesive that God Himself could not break. There was nothing inside of God that suggested turning back on His word. The Lord’s dilemma had nothing to do with power or might; it was His integrity that created such an adhesive that the Words of Him Who created the universe by words, which shackled Him to a disobedient child was because He would not give up on His promise.

More importantly, in the time of Israel’s disobedience, they became separated from God’s blessing and prosperity because of their transgressions.

Ephesians 2:1 And you [He made alive when you] were [spiritually] dead and separated from Him because of your transgressions and sins,
2:2 in which you once walked. You were following the ways of this world [influenced by this present age], in accordance with the prince of the power of the air (Satan), the spirit who is now at work in the disobedient [the unbelieving, who fight against the purposes of God]. Ephesians 2:1-2

The Resurrection

The Elevation of the Lamb Of God

The only way that Adonai could resurrect the spiritually dead was by the process a real “Resurrection.” Therefore, our Heavenly Father spoke again, and the “Word” became flesh. It looked like us, but it was not like us. The Lord sent His Living Word, not written in stone, but living among the lost. The Messiah preached against sin, but He also let the sinner know of an undeserving Grace Covenant awaiting anyone who trusts in a Savior and does what He promises. God promised to sprinkle us with water, then put His spirit on the inside of us. In other words, the Lord will break the power of the curse of the Law while giving us His Spirit to guide us.

Psalms 11:19 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you,

and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put my Spirit within you and cause you to walk in

My statutes, and you will keep My ordinances and do them.

Again, God will send the Holy Spirit into our hearts causing us to have His nature on the inside of us.

A New Heart

This act of God is so unfair because we get the deal of the universe and God gets our thanks?
While under the Law people would return each year for the Day of Atonement to ceremonially be right with God year after year.
By Adonai sending the Word made flesh, as the Messiah, He atoned humanity in two crucial areas, ethical and spiritual.

ETHICAL                                                                                                                                     Is when the Christ gives us a new heart making us decent, humane, moral, noble, upright and loyal.

The quality of being loyal.
“her loyalty to her husband of 34 years.”
synonyms: faithfulness · loyalty · constancy · devotedness · devotion · commitment · adherence · true-heartedness · trustworthiness · trustiness · honesty · dependability · reliability.


 making us sacred · divine · holy · nonsecular · church · churchly · ecclesiastic · devotional

In the spiritual sense, we hear God’s voice leading and guiding the believer’s heart through Biblical truth. As long as we can detect God’s voice from our selfless desires, our growth is uninterrupted, until becoming overcomers in Christ.

The Book of Revelation 3:14 – 19

“I know you inside and out, and find little to my liking. You’re not cold, you’re not hot—far better to be either cold or hot! You’re stale. You’re stagnant. You make me want to vomit. You brag, ‘I’m rich, I’ve got it made, I need nothing from anyone,’ oblivious that in fact you’re a pitiful, blind beggar, threadbare and homeless.
“Here’s what I want you to do: Buy your gold from me, gold that’s been through the refiner’s fire. Then you’ll be rich. Buy your clothes from me, clothes designed in Heaven. You’ve gone around half-naked long enough. And buy medicine for your eyes from me so you can see, really see.
“The people I love, I call to account—prod and correct and guide so that they’ll live at their best. Up on your feet, then! About face! Run after God!

The religious world will say that our sins are all covered under the blood. This statement is true but let’s not stop with the Lord’s process. Remember we are pressing for the high marks, and a real athlete will never stop pushing forward, but they will press for the prize. The full truth is simple: The Spirit of God wants to use you like a page from His Story.

The High Calling of God
Pressing toward the Goal

I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me. No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.

Again, let us look at the definitions of ethical and spiritual by using the symbolism chiefly of  which embodies two phases:

(1) the actual removal of sin by the person’s own activity, “Wherewith shall a young man cleanse zakah his way?” (Ps 119:9); “Cleanse your hands, ye sinners” (Jas 4:8);

“Let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement” (2 Cor 7:1);
(Philip Wendell Crannell: Clean Cleanse Defile; Defilement Excommunication Father Genealogy, 1-7 Genealogy, 8 Part 1 Genealogy, 8 Part 2 Generation Hallow).

(2) God’s removal of the guilt and power of sin, as, by discipline or punishment:                                                                                                                       “He cleanseth it” (Jn 15:2, AV “purgeth”);                                                          “I have cleansed thee”  (Ezk 24:13);

In forgiveness, justification, sanctification. In these latter cases, the exculpatory idea is sometimes prominent, although the other is not absent:

“I will cleanse them from all their iniquity, whereby they have sinned against me; and I will pardon their iniquities” (Jer 33:8);
In Eph 5:26, it is hard to determine whether pardon or God-given holiness is predominant:

“That he might sanctify it (the church), having cleansed it by the washing of water with the word.” In 1 Jn 1:7, the sanctification meaning seems almost wholly to absorb the other: “The blood of Jesus his Son cleanseth us (“is purifying, sanctifying”) from all sin”; but in 1:9 it is again hard to determine the predominance:

“He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sin, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” The uncertainty lies in that the second clause may not, as in our speech, add a distinct idea, but maybe Hebrew synonymous parallelism. Perhaps it is not wise to seek too curiously to disentangle the two ideas since they cannot be separated. God never “clears” where he has not begun to “cleanse,” and never “cleanses” by the Spirit without “clearing” through the blood.
(Philip Wendell Crannell)

Boredom and Violent Stimuli

Boredom and Violent Stimuli


Desensitization to violent stimuli is one potential consequence of excessive Internet usage in children, warns the City of Manchester Health Department.


Bring up a Child
3811. παιδεύω paideúō; fut. paideúsō, from país (G3816), child. Originally to bring up a child, to educate, used of activity directed toward the moral and spiritual nurture and training of the child, to influence conscious will and action. To instruct, particularly a child or youth (Acts 7:22; 22:3; 2 Tim. 2:25 [cf. Titus 2:12]);

Researchers say, when a baby is born, the child instinctively searches for its mother’s eyes. When the eyes of the mother and baby’s are engaged, a lifetime bond is established between the two until death separates their lifelong relationship.

Scientists are saying that the stare down between the mother and newborn represent their first communication and which qualifies as an unspoken language. The newborn doesn’t know how tall or short its mother is, what’s its mother’s ethnicity or its mother’s social status; the only instinct is to follow its mother’s eyes and learn to imitate what it sees.

The susceptible mind of a child is waiting for programming and fashioning of its personality which determines whether the baby grows into a contributor or a menace to society. The parents are responsible for arming and equipping their babies so that they won’t get absorbed by this world, but become a danger to Satan’s kingdom.

Acts 7:21-24 21 When he could be hidden no longer, he was put outside—and immediately rescued by Pharaoh’s daughter, who mothered him as her own son. 22 Moses was educated in the best schools in Egypt. He was equally impressive as a thinker and an athlete.
23 “When he was forty years old, he wondered how everything was going with his Hebrew kin and went out to look things over. 24 He saw an Egyptian abusing one of them and stepped in, avenging his underdog brother by knocking the Egyptian flat.
Moses was educated by the Egyptians, but when it came to fairness, Moses renounced the Egyptian culture and sought out answers from his mother’s face. When Moses became old, he couldn’t forsake his mother’s bond.

From the Web Site
There is a rising concern developing along with the growth of this global system. It is about the negative effects of the Internet. The lack of control over information sources, security leaking or internet addiction, is mentioned more frequently than ever.

Never in the past did the harmful effects of Internet receive as much as attention in comparison to this century.
When teenagers and students tend to choose Internet communication and avoid talking directly, their relationships with friends and family will be affected. According to the Washington Post survey and its result, about 6% of participants replied that their relationships got hurt as a consequence of excessive Internet use. It is believed that some people prefer online chatting because it somehow separates them from the real world.

My grandson is in the military, and the young army recruits developed a psychological episode while on a training mission. The real-life exercises with real weapons shook up one of the soldiers, who asked for a priest or someone to get security. The concern was that the soldier was beginning to feel like shooting everyone. No one knew this soldier’s history, and it appeared that no one recognized he was troubled. Thankfully, the young man did receive help in time, and there were no other incidents.


Bullies may be the result of hunger for interaction
I do a lot of volunteering at my local elementary school. Recently I was asked to speak to a 7th-grade class about the recent school shooting. At one point, I asked for the bully of the class and the children pointed out a little fellow who was sitting by himself towards the front of the classroom. So, I asked the young fellow which child in his class was his friend? The little fellow pointed to the boy sitting behind him, at which time the boy replied, “I am not your friend.” Then, the so-called bully turned around with a sad look on his face. I informed the little boy sitting behind our lonely and misunderstood “bully” that his rejection made him feel sad. Apologizing, the boy who rejected the little bully said that he was sorry and decided that he would be his friend after all. An amazing thing happened to the little tyrant. The used-to-be-called bully was smiling because he now had a friend.
When the class was over, the children gave me applause, and the former bully came to me and said, “You are really good at this stuff.” I think he was trying to thank me for his new friend. He only needed mental and emotional stimulation. Like all humans, the little boy just wanted to be a part of someone’s conversation.
When we allow our children to go into a dark room and close the door, with their headphones on, we are hindering their childhood development. What they need is human interaction.


Psychiatrists say that the human emotion of boredom rests in the area of the brain where psychological brain disorders exist. So, maybe thousands of youth have found themselves in trouble because they suffered from a simple case of boredom. The brain is an organ that is designed to be pushed, stretched, and challenged every single day. So, when a person’s mind is stuck in neutral, it’s held in a dangerous psychological state. The brain needs adjustment in reality as a person travels through life and grows into a productive adult. Human interaction is necessary for healthy development.

According to the BBC News, “boredom can be dangerous and a disruptive state of mind that damages your health.”
The human brain interprets boredom as an emotional, psychological state experienced when an individual is left without anything to do. When the mind finds itself with a lack of stimulation, in craving relief, the brain is capable of taking a host of behavioral, medical and social activities resulting in negative consequences.

Some children’s only interactions are video games, and first-person shooter video games are not the best means of childhood entertainment. Computer games are not all bad, but no video game should replace family interaction. Eye to eye contact is vital to healthy personal and social development.

compelling evidence

Compelling Evidence


The compelling evidence used in critical thinking and the court of law is proof.

A proof is an evidence that verifies all the conclusions and facts that were stated by a party. It supports to establish the truth of a statement. It is also a strong type of evidence that is directly confirming the truth.

The proof of the power of God, that raised Jesus from the dead is observed by the radical turn around described in  Mark 16.

Mark 16:14 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

Those, whose passions were controlled by the spirit of darkness is given jurisdiction under Christ to set the captives free. Under the authority of Yeshua’s name, the change in status from the victim to victorious is proof of the power of this glorious Church.

Christ sets us on our feet and walks alongside us reconciling the lost to Himself; healing us emotionally, spiritually, and physically.  Then the Lord places His Name on us to do the work of ministry.

Can the church be in disagreement with the Word?

Jesus appeared to the eleven [disciples] themselves as they were reclining at the table; and He called them to account for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they had not believed those who had seen Him after He had risen [from death]. And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. He who has believed [in Me] and has been baptized will be saved [from the penalty of God’s wrath and judgment]; but he who has not believed will be condemned. These signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up serpents, and if they drink anything deadly, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will get well.”

So, after the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, He was taken up into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God. And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord was working with them and confirming the word by the signs that followed.]

Does the light of the glorious Gospel of Christ emanate from your life? Do you make excuses for your failures as further proof that Christ is not yet in entire control of your life?

Do people come to you for Biblical advancement about eternity?  To be fair, some people only ask Bible questions to prove a point, but others really desire the compelling evidence that the Bible is God’s Word to mankind.

I am convinced that the greatest Bible translation is the human heart. How refreshing it is when a God-fearing person ushers in the presence of God just by his or her Godly demeanor.

While threats of nuclear war hover over the world, the most effective campaign is the Lord’s plan of leaving the wheat amongst the weeds so that the lives of the wheat will testify to the life-transforming power of God’s Word.

In fact, Yeshua, the Jewish Messiah was the Law (Word of God) with a heart, likewise, followers of Christ are living Epistles with power and ordained to be read by men. (2 Corinthians 2:14)

The love of God is everlasting to everlasting and His provisions are beyond this material world.

My question is: “Who would allow their only child to become tortured, disfigured, and humiliated just to accommodate Salvation for a people who are enjoying life totally the opposite of a life in God?”

God’s love is not affected by our unappreciative attitudes.  He has become the Living Word so that everyone can understand that He exists and that He has created the world and man with a purpose. God created man with an inner sense that there is something bigger out there, something that transcends mankind. That something is God and He requires recognition.

The created world points us to God, but we suppress that truth, preferring to put ourselves in the place of God, in effect saying, that there is no God but me. Paul further says that, because the revelation is so clear, we have no excuse for missing it; no legitimate reason for our blindness. People who do not see this revelation are guilty of not acknowledging the most basic reality there is – a response to His kindness.

The Lord pushes past our human ignorance and individual agendas, always open to a meaningful relationship. Just one soul coming to faith in Christ is well worth His wait.  And, for this reason, Adonai the God of Israel paints a picture of Calvary to move the human heart to a heart of compassion so that one might get a hint of what the Lord is saying.

The physical suffering of the righteous Lamb of God was an important historical event within Adonai’s plan for redemption. Whereas, the Redeemer is only empowered after a violation of the laws of retribution and restitution or a legal rightful inheritance owed to someone.  For example, Ruth who was without a father or a male child to declare her heritage.

One charged with the duty of restoring the rights of another and avenging his wrongs (Lev 25:48, 49; Num 5:8 Ruth 4:1 Job 19:25; Ps 19:14; 78:35, etc.). This title is peculiarly applied to Christ. He redeems us from all evil by the payment of a ransom (q.v.). (See Redemption) Easton’s Biblical Dictionary

It had all been done in God and with God, and the blessing invoked was not withheld. A son gladdened the hearts of the family of Bethlehem. Now, Naomi had a “redeemer,” not only to support and nourish her, nor merely to “redeem” the family property but to preserve the name of the family in Israel. And that “redeemer”–a child, and yet not a child of Boaz; a redeemer-son, and yet not a son of Naomi–was the father of Jesse. And so the story which began in poverty, famine, and exile leads up to the throne of David.    Amplified Note

The ancient Jewish laws didn’t have the power to influence the human heart, so Adonai sends His human Son, the Lamb of God as a peace offering, who was unjustly tortured and illegally executed. Then, the greatest crime against humanity took place and God’s Son was lacerated and subsequently bled to death.

The picture of Calvary is more effective than Torah because a vivid emotional message is written in human blood.

Moreover, God’s plan for the Holy Spirit is to escort believers into realizing the importance of their lives by aligning the pages of God’s Word to our hearts.


Ministers of the New Covenant

2 Corinthians 2:14   Complete Jewish Bible                         But thanks be to God, who in the Messiah constantly leads us in a triumphal procession and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of what it means to know him! For to God, we are the aroma of the Messiah, both among those being saved and among those being lost; to the latter, we are the smell of death leading only to more death; but to the former, we are the sweet smell of life leading to more life. Who is equal to such a task?

2 Corinthians 3:2   NLT                                                                       The only letter of recommendation we need is you yourselves. Your lives are a letter written in our hearts; everyone can read it and recognize our good work among you. Clearly, you are a letter from Christ showing the result of our ministry among you. This letter is written not with pen and ink, but with the Spirit of the living God. It is carved not on tablets of stone, but on human hearts.

The amazing thing about Adonai is that He recognizes value, even in His enemies. This is true with our Heavenly Father, Who will put the execution of his Son on hold for the soul of a criminal. When the Lord recognizes a little spark of faith in a non-believer, He gets excited.  God found a little glimmer of faith in the heart of a sinner on the cross next to the Messiah and was moved with compassion.

A spark of faith is an extraordinary thing with Christ

While we were still helpless [powerless to provide for our salvation], at the right time Christ died [as a substitute] for the ungodly. Now it is an extraordinary thing for one to willingly give his life even for an upright man, though perhaps for a good man [one who is noble and selfless and worthy] someone might even dare to die. But God clearly shows and proves His own love for us, by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

God’s light

Therefore, since we have now been justified [declared free of the guilt of sin] by His blood, [how much more certain is it that] we will be saved from the wrath of God through Him. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, it is much more certain, having been reconciled, that we will be saved [from the consequences of sin] by His life [that is, we will be saved because Christ lives today]. Not only that, but we also rejoice in God [rejoicing in His love and perfection] through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received and enjoy our reconciliation [with God].

Working hard for the disobedience

Acts 8:35 preached Jesus to him. First-century Jews did not speak much about a suffering Messiah. The Jewish people, facing the yoke of Roman rule, believed that the Messiah would come as the Lion of Judah, a delivering king, not a weak lamb. They believed and taught that the suffering One spoken of by Isaiah was the suffering nation of Israel. Philip’s explanation of the passage gave a very different view, showing Jesus as the Messiah who came to suffer and die in order to redeem sinners.

There are No Excuses  Someone once said there were two points they understood about God: (1) There is a God; and (2) I am not Him.

Theologians use the term œgeneral revelation to describe the concept Paul is teaching here in Romans 1.

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.


Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.

For this reason, God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.

And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness.

They are gossipers, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.




H7676. שַׁבָּת šabbāṯ: A noun meaning Sabbath, Day of Atonement, Sabbath week or year, weeks. The word can be translated as Sabbath in practically every instance. The seventh day was set aside at creation, but the holy Sabbath was first given to Israel and first mentioned in the biblical text in Exodus 16:23 as a gift to God’s people (Ex. 16:25, 26, 29). The word describes the day as it was officially established in the Ten Commandments at Sinai. It was the seventh day, and it was to be kept holy, set apart to the Lord (Ex. 20:1-21)

Exodus 31:16-17 16 Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep — the sabbath, to observe — the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.
17 It is a sign between me and — the children of Israel forever: for in six days the Lord made — heaven and — earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.



נָפַשׁ nāp̱aš resting after creation

H5314. נָפַשׁ nāp̱aš: A verb meaning to refresh, to rest, to refresh oneself. It refers to a renewal of energy in mind and body and applies to persons and work animals (Ex. 23:12; 2 Sam. 16:14). It is used figuratively of the Lord resting after creation, ceasing from His labor (Ex. 31:17).


The Human Soul: the inner life of a human being, the seat of emotions, and the center of human personality. [Olive Tree]
It could be said that Adam was the most distinguished accomplishment in all creation. While not equal to God, Adam’s soul was the only created thing in the Earth that could evaluate God’s Glory, while witnessing first hand the power of God’s Words by using them as praise and adoration toward the Lord’s worthiness. As long as the living soul continues to see perfection in the Lord, the universe will last forever.
We give YOU all the glory; we worship You our LORD! You are worthy to be praised!

After formulating the soul of Man in His image, God validates His work as being accurate and adequate. Therefore, God Blessed His Work.
The man was endowed with the capacity to supervise and maintain God’s creation by merely giving God glory and praise. When the doxology or the use of words to glorify the works of the Lord ends, this incredible universe will fall into disrepair.

Genesis 1:26-28 Then God said, “Let Us (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) make man in Our image, according to Our likeness [not physical, but a spiritual personality and moral likeness]; and let them have complete authority over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the cattle, and over the entire earth, and over everything that creeps and crawls on the earth.”

After all this, the most critical aspects of God is how He loves unconditionally, and He is full of Grace. His morality is impeccable, and His integrity is everlasting. The power of His words starts nuclear fission in motion. In atomic physics, nuclear fusion is a reaction or a radioactive decay process in which the nucleus of an atom splits into smaller parts. Adonai calls this energy “Lights.”
The Jews believed that the universe was created and is held together by the Word of God. Just as the soul was designed to comply with the integrity of God’s Word, the only contentment for humanity is finding his place in the Lord’s order.
Therefore, the world needs to know that the God of the universe already has a plan. And, that plan is for humankind to keep our eyes on the Lord’s marvelous solar system and admit its wonder in our souls.

Let Us Make Man
Proverbs 8:23-30 23 I was appointed in ages past,
at the very first, before the earth began.
24 I was born before the oceans were created before the springs bubbled forth their waters.
25 Before the mountains were formed,
before the hills, I was born—
26 before he had made the earth and fields and the first handfuls of soil.
27 I was there when he established the heavens when he drew the horizon on the oceans.
28 I was there when he set the clouds above when he established springs deep in the earth.
29 I was there when he set the limits of the seas,
so they would not spread beyond their boundaries.
And when he marked off the earth’s foundations,
30 I was the architect at his side.
I was his constant delight,
rejoicing always in his presence.

I know a scientist, Grady McMurtry, who once was an atheist. But, while looking into a microscope and observing a single cell organism, Dr. McMurtry was amazed when he realized patterns moving inside the single cell organism were identical to patterns seen with the giant telescopes used while staring into outer space. Dr. McMurtry conceded that the designer of this unique cell organism had autographed His work in the sky. Also, Dr. Grady McMurtry was aware that his body is made up of billions of single-cell organisms. Therefore, the maker of this single cell organism had presumably made everything else in the cosmos. No power in nature could create such a beautiful tiny copy of itself; the same order that drives this small organism is the same force that makes the universe go round. And as a scientist, Grady knew that his body is the craftsmanship of God.
Dr. Grady McMurtry has an additional suffix after his name, for the once atheist scientist is now a minister of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus.

God Rested From His Work
At a point of closing this blog, I inadvertently fell upon a fascinating Scripture pointing to the Greek “sabbatismos,” found in Hebrews 4:9 which carries the meaning of “to rest.” However, this “rest,” in Hebrews 4:9 is quite different than the “rest” found in Hebrews 4:1

(1.) Gr. katapausis, equivalent to the Hebrew word _noah_ (Heb נֹחַ nōaḥ: A proper noun designating Noah, the son of Lamech who gave rest to humankind from the curse placed on the earth (Gen. 4:28-32).
Hebrews4:1. Noah rest, (Heb. Noah) the grandson of Methuselah (Gen 5:25 -29), who was for two hundred and fifty years contemporary with Adam, and the son of Lamech, who was about fifty years old at the time of Adam’s death.
Complete Word Study Bible

(2.) Gr. anapausis, “rest from weariness” (Matt 11:28).
(3.) Gr. anesis, “relaxation” (2 Thess 1:7.
(4.) Gr. sabbatismos, a Sabbath rest, a rest from all work (Heb 4:9 R.V., “Sabbath”), a rest like that of God when he had finished the work of creation.

Genesis 1:1 – 2:2 The God of Genesis 1 is indeed the universal God.
See also “Cosmology in the Ancient Near East”.
2:2–3 On the seventh day God ceased from his labors, later referring to this as an example for Israel to follow six days of labor with one of rest (Ex 20:11). No end to the rest of the seventh day is mentioned. As far as what the Bible tells us, God’s rest from creating continues.

Hebrews 4:1-10 1 God’s promise of entering his rest still stands, so we ought to tremble with fear that some of you might fail to experience it. 2 For this good news—that God has prepared this rest—has been announced to us just as it was to them. But it did them no good because they didn’t share the faith of those who listened to God. 3 For only we who believe can enter his rest. As for the others, God said,
“In my anger, I took an oath:
‘They will never enter my place of rest,’ ”
even though this rest has been ready since he made the world. 4 We know it is ready because of the place in the Scriptures where it mentions the seventh day: “On the seventh day God rested from all his work.” 5 But in the other passage, God said, “They will never enter my place of rest.”

6 So God’s rest is there for people to enter, but those who first heard this good news failed to enter because they disobeyed God. 7 So God set another time for entering his rest, and that time is today. God announced this through David much later in the words already quoted:
“Today when you hear his voice,
don’t harden your hearts.”
8 Now if Joshua had succeeded in giving them this rest, God would not have spoken about another day of rest still to come. 9 So there is a special rest still waiting for the people of God. 10 For all who have entered into God’s rest have rested from their labors, just as God did after creating the world.
