I Will Give You Rest

Matthew 11 promises to give us REST from ALL of the rhetoric, singing, instruments and whatever you think of as a Religious Observation.  Jesus said that HIS kingdom does NOT come with Religious Observations but in quietness, rest and being a Disciple who never goes to religious rituals but to the School (only) of Christ (only): anything else comes from sin and sinners to "make the lambs dumb before the slaughter."


Exodus 32 They Sat Down to Eat and rose up to play: they repudiated The Book of The Covenant of Grace given by Christ to Abraham to ALL NATIONS.
Deuteronomy 32 They Rose Up To Play

1 Corinthians 10 They sat Down to Eat and Rose Up To Play  God gave Israel The Book of The Covenant of Grace as that made by Christ to Abraham.  The Israelites engaged in musical idolatry of the Egyptian trinity. God gave them The Book of The Law and Moses coultd not atone for them. The Angle (Christ) led them but God said nevertheless in the day when I visit I will visit their sin upon them.

Christ came to give REST to those who were baptized into Christ: [Gal 3]. There can be no racial distinction in the body of Christ who rescued Jews along with the Abrahamic Gens
who were not so burdened.

Land and Spiritual Covenant deliberately forfeited.
The Book of The Covenant was given to Abraham by God in Christ. The Israelites now religiously Egyptians rejected DISCIPLINE and demanded the "gods" of Egypt which let them "run wild and naked."

The Gospel Promise: I Will Give you rest. Jesus also that the kingdom of God does not come with "ovservation." That word means "Religious Observations." Christ defined the Church of Christ in the Wilderness to give the godly people REST from the normal pagan seventh-day religious efforts to get their god's attention. The command was to READ the Word and Rehearse or discuss the Word as it was delivered to small group elders of 50s etc. 

The Levites Almost all Messianic Jewish and Christian "worship" and money is devoted to the belief that God commanded instrumental worship in the sacrificial system.  They claim that "Since He has not changed His mind, what Christ ordained as A School of His Word has been turned into "theaters for holy entertainment."

The Kingdom of God does not come with Religious Observations or Services

Don't pay for people to force you to violate that Gospel promise.

Joe Shulam: First Century Jewish Identity as a Model  Joseph claims that Jesus and the first churches were 100% based on the Torah.

Joseph Shulam: First Century Jewish Identity as a Model Part Two  We have added a bit of "Old Testament" which the later Jews seemed to have missed as they came to be the oppressors of the Gentiles with whom Christ made the Abrahamic Covenant which never ceased.

Joe Shulam: The Way of the Lord is not Jewish  Genesis 18:19 For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgmentTHAT the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him. Acts 10:35 But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.

Joseph Shulam: was Jesus and the church "Torah" observant and worshipped at the temple.

Messianic and musical christians insist that: Jesus Came Not to Destroy the Law but to Fulfil it.  The prophecies are defined by Jesus as "CONCERNING ME." Fulfil is the prophecy that A NEW NATION WOULD BE BORN IN ONE DAY. This purpose would be neither Jewish nor Gentile in a racist sense but that ALL people be one.

Note: I am leaving off most of the LINKS to original sources because too many of them are wrong and I will correct in time. This is a list of the improtant ways in which the Greek PAUO and the Latin LUDO is used.
Words are defined in Latin, Greek and Hebrew where available by listing the ways the words are USED.  If Christ commands something, then the Examples are defined by the contemporaneous literature.  Where people directly reject the context, these examples can be used to EXCLUDE any Anti-Christian practice men may seek to impose as a laded burden beyond being A School of Christ.

The "gospel" of Jesus had as its core the freedom of believers from being these religious "pack animals" or "cargo ships." Jesus spoke one essential of the gospel when He that the agents or mediators were fired:

All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him. Matthew 11:27

Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28

Contrary to the literal fasting and sacrificing of animals God asked:
Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the Lord? Isaiah 58:5

Christ speaks through the Prophets and Apostles: in the Prophets He contrasts the REST DAYS or SABBATH of the Jews who thought that they could PERFORM such acts that THEIR VOICE COULD BE HEARD ON HIGH.

Christ promised and Jesus whom God made to be both Lord and Christ "made more certain" by defining HIS REST as identical to the synagogue or Church of Christ in the Wilderness, as always practiced by the Godly Jews quarantined from the WORKING HARD religious services. Thes Religious Observations was always proof of a lost people with no faith and no trust that Jesus Paid it All.

Contrary to the literal fasting and sacrificing of animals God asked:

Isaiah 58:5  Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the Lord? 

God, answers: "No!" Rather,

Isaiah 58:6 Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed (cracked or abraded) go free, and that ye break every yoke

memini perturbari exercitum nostrum religione et metu, quod serenā nocte subito candens et plena luna defecisset,id. Rep. 1, 15, 23: “tantā religione obstricta tota provincia est, tanta superstitio ex istius facto mentes

Clement: "For if people occupy their time with pipes, and psalteries, and choirs, and dances, and Egyptian clapping of hands, and such disorderly frivolities,

they become quite immodest and intractable, beat on cymbals and drums, and make a noise on instruments of delusion ; for plainly such a banquet, as seems to me, is a theatre of drunkenness.

And every improper sight and sound, to speak in a word, and every shameful sensation of licentiousnes"-which, in truth, is privation of sensation-must by all means be excluded;

and we must be on our guard against whatever pleasure titillates eye and ear, and effeminates. For the various spells of the broken strains and plaintive numbers of the Carian muse corrupt men's morals, drawing to perturbation of mind, by the licentious and mischievous art of music.


Burden is:

Aguddah (h92) ag-ood-daw'; fem. pass. part. of an unused root (mean. to bind); a band, bundle, knot, or arch: - bunch, burden, troop.

Oh! cruel fate! My friends! in the name of the gods, what possess you? Your dancing will wreck the success of a fine undertaking.

Leader of the Chorus

The people of Byzantium, being in need of funds, sold such dedicated lands as belonged to the State; those under crops, for a term of years, and those uncultivated, in perpetuity. In like manner they sold lands appropriated to religious celebrations or ancestral cults, not excepting those that were on private estates; for the owners of the surrounding land were ready to give a high price for them. To the dispossessed celebrants <they assigned> such other public lands surrounding the gymnasium, the agora, or the harbor, [20] as belonged to the State. Moreover they claimed as public property all open spaces where anything was sold, together with the sea-fisheries, the traffic in salt, and the trade of professional conjurors, soothsayers, charm-sellers, and the like; exacting from all these one-third of their gains. The right of changing money they sold to a single bank, whose proprietor was given a monopoly of the sale and purchase of coin, protected under penalty of confiscation.
