The primary thing that I am seeing is that God is to be blessed because he predestined us.

We are predestined to obtain an inheritance.

This is a very peculiar paragraph of Ephesians.

I believe that the central idea of this text is the emphasis on the one true  gospel.

This passage is really a demonstration of the superiority of the Son over the angels.

The revelation of God "in these last days" is  the person of Jesus Christ.

This entire passage is essentially an exposition of Psalm 95:7-11.

Ok, this is far and away the most difficult arc that I have ever done.

This passage gives us insight into the faithfulness of God and the hope that we have in the priestly character of Christ Jesus.
Hebrews 6:13-20
The author is relentless in showing that Jesus is superior to Levi.

The action of Christ is, once again, juxtaposed with the action of the high priest of the Levitical line.

The idea of striving seems to be built upon the foundation of not yet attaining the rest that God has promised. -->Draws the comparison between the rest that Joshua gave and the rest that God gives. Because we have not yet attained the rest, there is still a rest for the people of God, and we need to be striving to obtain it.

Hebrews
Hebrews 4:1-13
NT
esv
Therefore, while the promise of entering his rest still stands,
let us fear
lest any of you should seem to have failed to reach it.
actionpurpose
inference
For good news came to us just as to them,
but the message they heard did not benefit them,
because they were not united by faith with those who listened.
actionresult
comparison
For we who have believed enter that rest,
as he has said, "As I swore in my wrath, 'They shall not enter my rest,'"
although his works were finished from the foundation of the world.
ideaexplanation
For he has somewhere spoken of the seventh day in this way: "And God rested on the seventh day from all his works."
And again in this passage he said, "They shall not enter my rest."
series
Since therefore it remains for some to enter it,
and those who formerly received the good news failed to enter because of disobedience,
again he appoints a certain day, "Today,"
saying through David so long afterward, in the words already quoted, "Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts."
actionmanner
ground
For if Joshua had given them rest,
God would not have spoken of another day later on.
conditional
So then, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God,
for whoever has entered God's rest has also rested from his works
as God did from his.
negativepositive
Let us therefore strive to enter that rest,
so that no one may fall by the same sort of disobedience.
For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
And no creature is hidden from his sight,
but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give account.
