THE CHRISTIAN'S PROMISED LAND

Introduction

God first made reference to a "promised land" in Genesis 13:14-15 when he promised Abraham that he would give all the land of Canaan to him and his descendants forever. He reaffirmed that promise in Genesis 15:18-21. When God spoke to Moses from the burning bush (Ex. 3:1ff), he called him to deliver the Israelites, Abraham's descendants, from bondage in Egypt from whence He would "bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey..." (Ex. 3:8). This, as He would tell Israel later, was "which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee" (Ex 13:5). After 40+ years of trial, sin, punishment, repentance, God's mercy, and wandering in the Wilderness, Joshua led them into the promised land.
Paul makes reference to this promised land in Hebrews chapters 3 and 4, where he refers to it as a place of "rest." Indeed, it was a place of rest for the trials the Israelites had gone through, and the battles they had to fight before they settled down to their new land. But, In Hebrews, Paul refers to a new rest, a rest that remains for the people of God. In this article, we will examine the inspired writer's discussion of the rest that remains.

Christ Is a Son Over His own House

In the opening chapters of Hebrews, the apostle has been showing that Christ is greater than all things. Here, in Hebrews 3:1-6, he demonstrates that the "Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus" (Heb. 3:1), is greater than Moses, because Moses was faithful over his own house (Israel), but Jesus is faithful over the house of God, His church (1 Tim. 3:15).
