    In God’s preparation, we don’t have any rest until He establishes us in His holiness (Is 62:7,9) This holiness is known as the holy, meaning the understanding (Prov 9:10); Jesus says to come unto Him, all those that are heavy laden in their labor, and He will give us rest (from our work, so that we can have the time to labor in His word), and we need to take His yoke (of repentance) so that we could learn (what needs to be learned) so that we can find rest for our souls (Math 11:28-29); Without the chastisement of the Lord we cannot be given repentance, and we cannot be instructed (Jer 31:18-19).

    We need to labor in the word of God so that we can enter into the rest, (so that God can establish us Is 62:7), because the word of God is powerful, and can discern the thoughts and intents of our hearts (Heb 4:11-12); We are not to labor for the things of this world which perish, but for the meat (in the word of God), that endures to everlasting life that the Son of man shall give unto us (Jn 6:27); This is why we need to ASK Jesus to open our understanding of the scriptures, because without doing this, we cannot understand. (Lk 24:45).

    If this truth has not been manifested unto us, we are (subjecting ourselves) under someone who is mishandling the word of God (2 Cor 4:2); Have you been given mercy to manifest all of this truth? (4:1-2); Then God Himself has set a watchman over you, who is mentioning all of this (Is 62:6); Those who can minister unto others, explain how our sufficiency is of God, because we are not sufficient of “our own” selves (2Cor 3:5); Those who are not able to minister the word of God by writing these things down for others, need letters of recommendation (from men) (2Cor 3:6 & 1).

    Are you one that has learned how to write these things down so that others can read, and study?(1Cor 4:14, Es 9:30, Eph 4:29, 4:16, 1Thess 5:11, Rom 15:2, 1Tim 1:4); Then you are in the love that edifies others in the truth (1Cor 8:1); Which truth reveals the grace of God
    (Col 1:6).

    It is spiritual pride to say that you are serving God and you are ignorant of the word of God. (Ps 119:21, Is 3:12, 9:16, Jer 23:32, Matt 22:29, Mk 12:24, Heb3:10, Jm 1:16)

    Jesus says to those that love Him, to feed His sheep (by learning, so that you can teach others) (Jn 21:15-17). No one knows anything about love unless they know that love edifies others in the wisdom and knowledge of God by writing these things down for others (so that they can study and meditate upon these things). (2Cor 8:1, Es 9:30, Eph 4:29, 4:16, 1Thess 5:11, Rom 15:2, 1Tim 1:4)
