His works were finished from the foundation of the world.
Some Enter His Rest, While Others Don't. We can have hope in our salvation, for the Lord declared the beginning from the end; meaning He spoke from the ancient of days clear up until the end of time, with the profession that it will stand as He declared (Isaiah 46:10; Hebrews 4:3-4) for He is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end (Revelation 22:13). And we know He rested from all His works on the seventh day (Genesis 2:2-3). This very rest was promised by God to those who believe (Hebrews 4:3; Exodus 33:14) and this rest still remains for some to enter (Hebrews 4:1, 4-6, 9-10). But frighteningly, He also declared, with an oath, others will never enter His rest (Psalm 95:11). Who are the ones to enter or not enter?
The Woman of Revelation 12. If there was an illustrative story in the bible to sum up the events of history, that would be the vision in Revelation 12. You have a celestial woman in childbirth with the dragon, Satan, seeking to devour the child, Jesus; but He is caught up into heaven so the dragon can't hurt Him. The dragon tries to attack the woman but God protects her, using the earth to swallow the water the dragon spews at her and the wilderness to hide her. The dragon is furious that he can't harm her either, so he goes to make war against her other children, the ones who keep the testimony of Jesus Christ. The age old question is, who is this woman? There are three primary schools of thought; she is said to be Mary, the Church or Israel. Is she any, or none of them? We are going to investigate if she is Mary.
