The Wicked Take No Vacation

Evil does not take a vacation

“Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men. Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away. For they sleep not, except they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause some to fall. For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence.”
–Proverbs 4:14-17

Does evil ever take a break?

Does the devil ever relax and take it easy for awhile?

Do the wicked ever take a vacation?

According to the Bible, it appears they do not.

“But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt. There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.”
–Isaiah 57:20-21

And there is also Isaiah 48:22.

“There is no peace, saith the LORD, unto the wicked.”

A popular saying claims “There is no rest for the weary.

It would be much more accurate–as well as biblical–to say “There is no rest for the wicked.”

A vacation is traditionally thought of as a time to relax and get some rest.  Though they may regularly set aside time to relax, the wicked cannot truly rest.

Therefore, it is doubtful they ever get a real vacation.

DOES the reader regularly feel restless?

Why does the reader suppose this is?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
