For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. Hebrews 4:12.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:

My Word is living and active (working even unto now), sharper than any two-edged (two-mouthed) sword, piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. Hebrews 4:12. Put your words to work with My Word in your mouth, for My Words are life to those who find them and health to all their flesh. They will prosper you and give you success. No other words can do what Mine do, for I am in My Word. Bind them continually on your heart, tie them around your neck, when you walk about they will guide you; when you sleep, they will watch over you, and when you awake they will talk to you. Proverbs 6:21-22. A two-mouthed sword—yours lined up with Mine, and two witnesses establish a fact.

Be diligent to enter the rest, My rest, the Promised Land of rest from your enemies on every side, flowing with milk and honey. Living the abundant life even now that Jesus came to give you, which is merely the life I gave you when I first made you. A life of dominion authority over the earth restored. And when I restore it is better than it was before. The life I give you now in My Son is something entirely new. I have done a new thing that is beyond all you can ask or imagine. I have united God and man in My Son and now the two can never be separated. You are reconciled with Me and one Spirit with Me in a Covenant that can never be broken.

Be diligent to enter My rest, the life where things work for you instead of you working for things. But it takes faith and patience to inherit the promises. The Israelites redeemed from slavery in Egypt refused to enter the rest. Why? They were not able to enter because of their unbelief in My Word. Hebrews 3:19. They did not mix faith with My promises to them. They lived by their flesh (what the perceived only with their 5 physical senses), not by faith. They did not lift up their eyes, so to speak, to see the spiritual dimension of My Word. They saw My Works and were awed when they occurred, but they never understood My ways. My ways are faithfulness, love and truth.

Faith works by love and perfect love casts out all fear. They never let themselves know and believe in the love I had for them. They were too busy with the things of the world. Moses counseled the people to write My Words on their homes and in their hearts and to speak them constantly but they did not. Only two out of a vast number of people did, Joshua and Caleb, and the obtained all the promises.

See that none of you fall through the same example of disobedience. Hebrews 4:11. I tell you in My Word that you have the same good news preached to you that they had. What is that? Look at Hebrews 3:1. You are partakers of a heavenly calling so consider Jesus and High Priest of your confession (homologia in Greek, it means speaking the same words, being in agreement). Take care that there not be in any one of you an evil, unbelieving heart that falls away from Me, the living God. Hebrews 3:12. Encourage one another day after day as long as it is called “today,” i.e., today if you should hear My voice, harden not your heart, so that none of you will be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. Hebrews 3:13.

Don’t fall short of My promise of entering the rest, My righteous one shall live by faith and if he draws back I take no pleasure in him. Why? Because I want to give you the full reward. Examine yourself to see if you are in faith. Christ Jesus is in you, your hope of glory. Do you know that? Hold fast to My Word, your homologia, and give your High Priest something to perform. Draw near to My throne of grace with confidence. I am an ever present help in time of need.

I love you. Make the most of your time. Remember, the sower sows the Word. Sow with My Word and target your seed sown. Believe in your heart, and speak with your mouth and that is the spirit of faith. See to it that none of you has an evil and unbelieving heart.
