Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 11:28

_ _ Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest — Incomparable, ravishing sounds these — if ever such were heard in this weary, groaning world! What gentleness, what sweetness is there in the very style of the invitation — “Hither to Me”; and in the words, “All ye that toil and are burdened,” the universal wretchedness of man is depicted, on both its sides — the active and the passive forms of it.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 11:25-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 11:28

Come to me — Here he shows to whom he is pleased to reveal these things to the weary and heavy laden; ye that labour — After rest in God: and are heavy laden — With the guilt and power of sin: and I will give you rest — I alone (for none else can) will freely give you (what ye cannot purchase) rest from the guilt of sin by justification, and from the power of sin by sanctification.

User-Posted Comments on Matthew 11:28

You who besmirch the true name of Yahshua Messiah, I need not go to outside or internet sources for doctrine but the Scriptures. Do you know Hebrew, or you just venting? The reason most of you all are falling for Peshitta "Yeshua" is because you still are enslaved to the churches , probably trinitarian dogma and lawless thinking of J.C.Because it sounds close to J-sus. I need not go to the high paid so called modern day Baal/L-rd theologians. You can find a link for any teachings. I have pretty much used just Scripture to proof text. You just will not accept sound teaching. That is on you! Not me!

We adhere to the name of Yahweh as our heavenly Father {Ex. 3:15; Isa. 42:8; Isa. 52: 5-6; Isa. 56:5 compared again with Ex. 3:15}.

The Tetragrammaton is comprised of 4 (Actually 3) consonants also employed as vowels that are pronounced in the ancient Sephardic Hebrew that Yahshua would have spoken:

Y="ee"; H= "ah or aw"; W= "ew"; H ="eh"--- Say the phonetics together rapidly and you have just pronounced the Name of your heavenly Father, YAHWEH! Not Yahuwah or any other 3 syllable names. The law of Hebrew linguistics only allows for a 2 syllable Name for the Tetragrammaton.

Yahshua is the true name for the son of Yahweh. Matthew 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son; and you shall call his name Yah-shua; for it is He (Yahweh the Father) that shall save His people from their sins.; Note: It is unimaginable that Yahweh the Father would not include the heavenly family name of YAH in naming the Son, the Messiah, since He sent him for the mission he served as Savior in calling him Yah-shua.

Anciently he was referred to as the Word or Messenger of Yahweh, the visible Yahweh, but the lesser, whom man saw. In the millennium, he will be called Yah-zidenu= Yahweh is our Righteousness! Contrary to what the Yeshua (Uninspired without ascribing to whom the salvation will be of!) crowd believes, Yahshua is what Scriptural evidence denotes as his name. There has only been given under heaven, one name for man to be saved.

The Messiah's name is exactly the same as Numbers 13:16. These are the names of the men that Moses sent to spy out the land. And Moses called Hoshea the son of Nun Joshua (Jo= Yah, the scribes combined the HW and created an "O" as they did in Joseph which should actually be read as Yahseph.

As well as Jerusalem, which should actually be read as Yahrushalem, this time by syncope (dropping of sounds in a word) they created an "E" by omitting the "H" as in Yah. The prophets Daniel, Jeremiah and Ezekiel attest to Yahweh's city being called by His Name! (The Messiah had exactly the same name as the Israelite general under Moses, Hoshea changed to Yahshua, in Numbers 13:16, is a fact). Hebrews 1:4; having become by so much better than the heavenly messengers, as he hath inherited a more excellent name than they. Philippians 2:9 Wherefore also Elohim highly exalted him, and gave unto him the name which is above every name. The Greek Septuagint transliterated superscriptions in Psalms 145-150 all state "Alleluia". The "ia" ending = YAH, not Yeh! Some 50 times Yah is used in the Masoretic Psalms. Jewish scribal and rabbinic as well as Messianic Judaism's attempts to suppress and mispronounce the Names Yahweh and Yahshua and distort them to variant similitudes or outright substitutions are based off of superstition and misguided error.

Revelation 3:..... that you have little power, yet have guarded My Word, and have not denied My Name. Yah-shua

Part 1 on Comment # 16

Part 2
Hebrews 4:8 For if Yehoshua
[Better transliterated Yahshua. Moses' understudy commonly called Joshua, had the same name as Messiah. Eusebius attests to this as well, as this passage and others]
had given them rest
[From their enemies and land inheritance. He did as far as their enemies, but it was temporary -Joshua 23:12-13; Ibid 24: 31, Judges 2:1-15]

He [Yahweh through the Psalmist David in Psalm 95] would not have spoken of another day [No, not another literal day, but another ERA, as he did some 400 years plus in David’s day] after that.

9 So there remains a Sabbath-keeping for the people of Elohim
[Psalm 90:4 and 2 Peter 3:8.Teaches that a day of Yahweh is parallel with 1,000 years of man. The millennial reign of Messiah is a 1,000 year period [Revelation 20:1-10] So Sabbath- keeping is on the 7th day of the week is a rehearsal for the 7th millennia-The Kingdom reign of Messiah.- 6 days of work parallels with 6 thousand years of work. The weekly Sabbath is a rest day. The Millennial Kingdom is “His Rest” [Mankind alive at that time will be able to be taught and live without the influences of Satan, who will be imprisoned during most of the Millennium]

10 For the one, having entered into His rest [7th day Sabbath rest], has himself also rested from his works, as Elohim rested from His own. [As our example]

11 Let us therefore do our utmost to enter into that rest [7th day Sabbath as a rehearsal to the Kingdom Age], lest anyone fall after the same example of disobedience

12 For the Word of Elohim [TaNaK-Old Testament] is living, and working, and sharper than any two-edged sword, cutting through even to the dividing of being and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all are naked and laid bare before the eyes of Him with whom is our account.
2 Peter 3:
14 So then, beloved ones, looking forward to this, do your utmost to be found by Him in peace, spotless and blameless,
15 and reckon the patience of our Master as deliverance, as also our beloved brother Sha’ul wrote to you, according to the wisdom given to him,
16 as also in all his letters, speaking in them concerning these matters, in which some are hard to understand, WHICH THOSE WHO ARE UNTAUGHT AND UNSTABLE TWIST TO THEIR OWN DESTRUCTION, AS THEY DO ALSO THE OTHER SCRIPTURES.
Daniel 7:
24‘And the ten horns [Roman beast government/proto papal era- Daniel 7:7; Revelation 13:1-2] are ten sovereigns from this reign. They shall rise, and another shall rise after them, and it is different from the first ones, and it humbles three sovereigns,
25 and it speaks words against the Most High, and it wears out the set-apart ones of the Most High, AND IT INTENDS TO CHANGE APPOINTED TIMES [7th Day Sabbath is an appointed time- Numbers 28 :1-2; 9-10] AND the LAW [Torah], and they are given into its hand for a time and times and half a time.[Length of time of the Great Tribulation, 3.5 years =½ of a Sabbatical cycle]

- Mike Gardner (8/3/2019 3:24:26 PM)
Popular passage used by Christology to say they are exempt from 7 th day Sabbath keeping.

Hebrews 3: 14 For we have become partakers of Messiah if we hold fast the beginning of our trust firm to the end,

15 while it is said, “Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.” [Psalm 95, a Sabbath Psalm, Extolling Yahweh as Sovereign over the whole earth and the Master of Creation. The rebellions of Meribah-Contending with Yahweh and the leadership over lack of water -Numbers 20: 13 and Massah-Testing Yahweh and the leadership over lack of water -Exodus 17:7]

16 For who, having heard, rebelled? Was it not all who came out of Mitsrayim, led by Mosheh?

17 And with whom was He grieved forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose corpses fell in the wilderness?

18 And to whom did He swear that they would not enter into His rest [Land Inheritance of Israel], but to those who did not obey? [Numbers 14:32-34- 10 -False reports of the spies and subsequent national hysteria leading to defiance against Yahweh at Qadesh Barnea- Verse 26]

19 So we see that they were unable to enter in because of unbelief [In Yahweh's word and accepting lies].

Hebrews 4:

The Scriptures (ISR 1998)
1 Therefore, since a promise remains of entering into His rest
[Land Inheritance of Israel as a promise for us -The Israel of Yahweh under Yahshua Messiah {Galatians 6:16} also {Ezekiel 20:38, 42; Ibid 37:12; 1 Peter 1:3-5; Acts 7:2-5; Luke 19:11-27; John 3:13 (No man has or has been promised to go directly to Yahweh’s throne room except Messiah. Neither has Heaven been promised as a habitation and reward for the new covenant! Nowhere in Scripture is that promised! Christology and Judaism force the texts to state something they DON’T. Wrong context and concepts lead to false doctrines. 2,000 year old LIE.} Hebrews 11 whole chapter, heaven never mentioned as the inheritance for Yahweh’s people Israel- For a covenant agreement to be eternal, both parties would have to have eternal as well.],
let us fear lest any of you seem to have come short of it.
Just to note when one keeps Yahweh’s Feast Days they are taught what happens after physical death and the kingdom to come. Does Halloween, Christmas, Secular New Year’s Day, Thanksgiving or Easter or any other Christian holiday do that; since they have their origin in pagan/Wicca practices and or worship? If one is reading this for the first time, don’t outright reject what is being stated: PROVE ALL THINGS. 1 Thessalonians 5:11

2 For indeed the Good News was brought TO US AS WELL AS TO THEM [I doubt any ch-rch has ever taught that they, ancient Israel, had the glad tidings also!], but the word which they heard did not profit them, not having been mixed with belief in those who heard it. [They were carnal.]

3 For we who have believed do enter into that rest, as He has said, “As I swore in My wrath, if they shall enter into My rest... [Psalm 95:11]” And yet His works have come into being from the foundation of the world.

4 For somewhere He has said thus about the SEVENTH DAY, “And Elohim rested on the SEVENTH DAY from all His works,” [Genesis 2:3]

5 and in this again, “If they shall enter into My rest [Land inheritance being equivalent to the Millennial Kingdom, see Hebrews 4:9]...” [Numbers 14:22-23, 30]

6 Since then it remains for some to enter into it, and those who formerly received the Good News did not enter in because of disobedience [Yes, Houses of Israel and Judah prior to their perspective exiles were evicted because they lost the sign of the 7th day Sabbath {Exodus 31: 12-18} and stopped practicing it and worshiped foreign elohim/a.k.a. DEMONS. Jeremiah 17: 19-27 and 2 Kings 17: 7-23; Ezekiel 23: 36-38; 1 Kings 8:46-53]

7 He again defines a certain day, “Today,” saying through David [In Psalm 95= Temple Sabbath Liturgy] so much later, as it has been said, “Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts.”[REMEMBER THEY, MOST OF THE OLDER GENERATION THAT WENT THROUGH THE RED SEA, FAILED TO ENTER INTO THE LAND INHERITANCE BECAUSE OF DISOBEDIENCE]
