No Rest For the Wicked

rest

One point on which the Bible is VERY clear: the wicked enjoy NO rest (or peace) while living out their lives of iniquity.

“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

At least a few of the wicked may have thought to themselves, “Ha! ‘No peace for the wicked!’ We’ll see about that!  I’ll settle for a little R & R.”

BUT, when God declares ‘no rest’ or ‘no peace,’ He means just that: NO REST (NO PEACE).

It matters not that the wicked hide themselves among a sea of other wicked ones.

God knows who they are: they are NOT hidden to the all-power Creator–OR His coming judgment.

“Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.”
–Matthew 10:26

How many men does the reader know who seem to busy themselves, daily dashing here and there, back and forth, always ‘busy;’ never able to seemingly able to catch their breath?

IN FACT, one of the ways the reader can KNOW he is now living in the end times is that many will rush around ‘too and fro.’

“But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.”
–Daniel 12:4

One method the vigilant believer can KNOW who the wicked are is by observing who it is among men who constantly seek rest.

That the wicked will have NO peace (or rest) in this life is such an important point, it is repeated for the reader in God’s Word.

“There is no peace, saith the LORD, unto the wicked.”
–Isaiah 48:22

At this moment, is the reader reassuring himself he is NOT wicked by offering his yearly vacation as “proof” he rests–at least ONCE a year?

OR, is the reader one of the many who loudly proclaim they feel like they need a vacation to rest up from their vacation?

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
