[Hebrews 4] Who Really Knows The "Real" Me? Jesus Does!

Who Knows the Real Me?

Have you ever replied, "...that's not what I meant to say..."?  Or ever thought how nice it would be to know what people actually meant when talking to them?   


How many times has communication between one another been "lost in translation" which resulted in someone being hurt or misunderstood? 


As we communicate with one another this is often the case.  Because we cannot see the intents of the heart (even though we judge people as if we can).


But...


Thanks be to Jesus because He can. He can see the intents of the heart.  This is one of my fondest qualities of God and His Word. 

In verse 12 we read about how God's word can pierce to the dividing of the heart.  The discerner of the thoughts!  


What else can do that?  


What else knows you down to the marrow?  


What else can not only know your thoughts but exposes the intent behind the thought?


It's refreshing to know that God knows me and that God's word can expose the "real" me.  Good, bad or otherwise.  It's not based on assumptions or calculations.   It's not misleading or with hidden agendas.  It's the truth, it's fact.


That's refreshing...even when God's Word exposes my disbelief and sin. 


Hebrews 4:1-16 (KJV) 

God's promise of a sabbath rest remains today

1 Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.
2 For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.
3 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.
4 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.
5 And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest.
6 Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief:
7 Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts.
8 For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day.
9 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.
10 For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.
11 Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.
12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.
14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.
15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

It was interesting to me that the scriptures here are asking us to enter 'rest' in the Lord through faith. Unbelief does not give us the rest that is needed to go forward. So simple but hard for humans at times.

“This is the rest that causes the weary to rest”...... (Isa 28) a foreshadowing of the outpouring of the Holy Ghost! What a privilege to be in the midst of that very dispensation

It amazes me how the Lord can “peel back the onion layers” of my being, see all my faults and treat me like I have never done anything wrong. Grace is so powerful. How can I resist asking the Lord “help me show that kind of grace” to others as well? Humanly impossible for sure. But, it is not impossible for His Spirit that He has put within me. “Oh God, Help me YIELD to that wonderful Spirit”.
