“Night is coming when no one can work.”
[John 9:4 NET]
“Blessed are the dead, those who die in the Lord … they can rest from their hard work, because their deeds will follow them.”
“There the wicked cease from turmoil, and there the weary are at rest.”
Samuel said to Saul, “Why have you disturbed me by bringing me up?”
“Whatever you find to do with your hands, do it with all your might, because there is neither work nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom in the grave, the place where you will eventually go.”
The dead do not praise the Lord, nor do any of those who descend into the silence of death.
For I am already being poured out as an offering, and the time for me to depart is at hand. I have competed well; I have finished the race; I have kept the faith! Finally the crown of righteousness is reserved for me. The Lord, the righteous Judge, will award it to me in that day.
Consequently a Sabbath rest remains for the people of God. For the one who enters God’s rest has also rested from his works, just as God did from his own works.
[Rev 14:13, Job 3:17, 1 Sam 28:15, Eccl 9:10, Ps 115:17, 2 Tim 4:6-8, Heb 4:9-10]
