Sabbath and rest are connected with sanctification: notes from Rick J.

These are my notes from part of Rick Joyner's talk at his advanced prophetic conference, on 5-8-21:

Sabbath and rest are connected with sanctification.

Legalism is not the answer to lawlessness.

The number one reason God's people stay in bondage is because they fail to enter God's rest.

The spirit of Babylon is confusion, confused speech.

The clearest sign that someone is free of Babylon is clear speech: telling it like it is.

Gathering around projects is not the same as gathering to the Lord.

2020 was a year to begin to enter the Lord's rest and seek God. (Psalm 23:2), (Hebrews 3:8-4:11)

One of the greatest demonstrations that we have entered God's rest is our lack of anxiety.

Resting in Him is trusting Him.

Anxiety is sin when it is rooted in pride: my ability to solve problems. My saying, "I have to carry this."

Peter said:

Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.

(1 Peter 5:6-7, English Standard Version)

The antidote to depression is being in God's presence:

Psalm 16:11

English Standard Version

You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
