"Entering the Lord’s rest"

RFI's true pastoral approach is laid bare here...... if you have any struggle with the path ahead of you, your treatment, or the duplicity of the 'messenger', the Lord's wrath is kindled against you! There is no kindness, understanding, or compassion.... only a judicial statement that your struggle is your own fault!We know that not every Christian who experiences distress in the midst of their suffering enters the Lord’s rest. In this regard, Paul reminds us of the example of the children of Israel. In the day of their trial and fear, they would not receive the word of Moses, nor the testimony of Caleb and Joshua, the Lord’s messengers. Instead of becoming poor in spirit and mixing the word with faith, they wanted to return to Egypt. They even called the context of their former slavery, ‘a land flowing with milk and honey’. Therefore, the Lord swore in His wrath, ‘They shall not enter My rest’.
I am sure that the God of all comfort (2 Corinthians 1:3-5) is better than that!!
