This video outlines the various rests.

We can have peace above the storm, a serene "rest" in our minds and hearts amidst turmoil in a rebellious world.

There's one Rest in particular that is a special blessing from the Lord.

God knew that we would need a weekly break from wearying busy-ness.  In the heart of The Ten Commandments, from the loving heart of God, is the precious gift of the Sabbath – a day of sweet fellowship with the Lord.  

The fourth Commandment, beginning with the word "Remember," is one that Satan tries the hardest to make humans "forget," for it is a memorial to God as Creator and will be the ultimate test of our loyalty.  

Sabbath observance is not limited to those of the Jewish religion, for the Sabbath was given to mankind in Eden (before there was a Jewish nation).  The gift of Sabbath rest has not been omitted from the Law of God, as the enemy of our souls would have us believe (in hopes that we will burn out, stress out, look down, and give up).  

"Satan is the destroyer; Christ is the Restorer." {Counsels on Health, pg. 588}

All ten of the Commandments are meant to bless, not to stress.  They are precious "protective promises" for which we can be eternally grateful.

"Temple Made of Time"
by Mark Bond

God took six days and created earth and moon, the stars and sun.
On the seventh day, He rested from the work that He had done.
Then He blessed it, made it holy, as a gift for every man
to remind us where we came from and just how this world began.

Chorus:
Holy day, purified, set apart, sanctified.
Enter in to joy divine, in a Temple made of time.

See Him worship on the Sabbath, as His weekly custom was.
Feel the fury of the rabbis, for He would not heed their laws.
So they killed Him on a hillside as the sun began to fade.
But He even kept the Sabbath as they laid Him in the grave.

Repeat Chorus

Oft forsaken and forgotten, desecrated and profaned.
But the sacred fourth commandment is still valid and unchanged.
Hear the Father gently calling, "If you love Me, heed each one;
Not for merit or salvation but because you love My Son."

Repeat Chorus
