For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world. For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works. (Hebrews 4:3-4)
The Holy Spirit will bring you back to Pentecost, every time; they did in the Scripture to everybody, and it will on this day to everybody. It’ll bring you back to that reality. It’ll bring you back to a baptism of power of the Spirit, that’ll lead you and will never take one Word off the Bible. It’ll stay right in the Bible. Where it says this, it’ll follow right on through it. The Holy Spirit will. It brings reality.
What did He do? He had to get these ignorant fishermen, didn’t even have clothes, just something wrapped around them, fish-aprons, and so forth, no clothes; so ignorant they couldn’t sign their name: unlearned, no education. But He found somebody. He had to get somebody. But He found men in that kind of a state, that was willing to surrender. They had nothing else to hold. They didn’t have any churches, any denominations and anything. They were just ignorant fishermen, sheepherders; didn’t know how to write, didn’t know how to read, nor nothing. But they had nothing to lose, and He got to them, and they surrendered. They said, “Whatever You say, Lord, we’ll do it. We’ll follow You.”
But when they completely surrendered and gave their selves over to God, God gave them a Pentecostal reality. He led them up to Pentecost and give them the Holy Ghost. There where they there under the Spirit of God, making all kinds of foolish signs to the people, stammering, and stammering, and carrying. What was they on? They was on the highway.
The Bible said, “With stammering lips and other tongues will I speak to this people, and this is the rest of the soul. This is the thing that will come. Isaiah 28:18, read it. “With stammering lips and other tongues will I speak to this people. This is the rest.” Not Sunday ain’t the rest day. The Holy Spirit is the Rest day. You Advent brethren, not the seventh-day sabbath is the rest. The Holy Spirit is the Rest. “With stammering lips and other tongues will I speak to this people. And this is the Sabbath.” “Sabbath” means “rest.” This is the Rest to the soul; you have eternal Rest.
Like God, when He made the world, the seventh day, He rested after that. He rested; He went on resting. When we enter into God, we rest all the time; not from one Sunday to another. We rest eternal; we got Eternal Life. The Holy Spirit gives you Rest. Now, they had a Pentecostal experience, a reality of God. They found something.
