Consequently a Sabbath rest remains for the people of God.
[Heb 4:9 NET]
“There the wicked cease from turmoil, and there the weary are at rest. There the prisoners relax together; they do not hear the voice of the oppressor.”
“Blessed are the dead, those who die in the Lord from this moment on!” … “they can rest from their hard work, because their deeds will follow them.”
“Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep …” Now Jesus had been talking about his death, but they thought he had been talking about real sleep.
For we groan while we are in this tent, since we are weighed down. We ourselves also, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we eagerly await our adoption, the redemption of our bodies. For in hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope … But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with endurance.
[Job 3:17-18, Rev 14:13, John 11:11, John 11:13, 2 Cor 5:4, Rom 8:23-25]
