“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
(If you) will come to me, (how) who are weary and burdened (then) I will give you rest. When you take the yoke of Christ Jesus what do you get? (If you) take my yoke upon (then you) will learn from me (because) I am gentle and humble and you chose to be yoked to ME (then you find rest and ease of burdens).
Yoked to Christ Jesus you get to learn from HIM and receive rest and relief from the burdens of the painful toil and sweat cursed system of the world. Yoked to Christ Jesus you will receive the sabbath rest daily.
What are you learning? You are learning about HIS character of humility and gentleness. When you put on HIS yoke, the process begins of removing the yoke of the world cursed system and entering into the Kingdom of God system. You take on the Yoke of the Kingdom of God by breaking the poverty spirit of lack, worry over provision and the painful toil and sweat cursed world system. The sabbath rest is being yoked to Jesus Christ. Jesus is the Sabbath.
16 Therefore let no one sit in judgment on you in matters of food and drink, or with regard to a feast day or a New Moon or a Sabbath.
17 Such [things] are only the shadow of things that are to come, and they have only a symbolic value. But the reality (the substance, the solid fact of what is foreshadowed, the body of it) belongs to Christ. Colossians 2:16 AMPC
“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me-watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” Message Matthew 11:28-30
The Sabbath Year is a foreshadowing of the redemption in Christ Jesus and all debts being paid. The redemption from the cursed earth system of drudgery, painful toil and sweat.
Receive the Sabbath Rest now in Christ Jesus. All debts have been paid. Your provision is provided. Receive rest for your soul in Christ Jesus. You will learn to live freely.
