REST>Relief or freedom, esp. from anything that wearies, troubles, or disturbs.
I love this meaning of rest , the freedom from anything that wearies , troubles or disturbs . Isn’t that comforting ? I love rest like that , no worries , no fear , just peace .
Knowing Jesus as your Lord and Savior is the only way to get that kind of peace. In the New Testament in the Book Of Matthew it is written :
34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for
tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has
enough trouble of its own.
In this world we will have trouble , however Peace is mentioned
In the King James version * The word peace is mentioned 429 times
one of my favorite verses from the
Book of Philippians >
7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all
understanding, will guard your hearts and
minds through Christ Jesus.
Now what this tells me is that we are not to fear , worry , or be afraid .We are to Rest and have Peace in this life >
Getting back to verse 6:11 , we read here that the Martyrs are given clean white robes and that they are told to rest a little while longer until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren , who would be killed as they were, was ompleted .
God has a plan , He always has had a plan , that plan never changes as God never changes , neither does His plan . From reading this we are told that many will be martyred in this coming 7 year period and will join the martyrs we are reading about in this verse .
