In His Rest

A travel agent arranging flights for a trip to Eastern Europe–where we will visit Krakow and Minsk and see Auschwitz and Schindler’s factory–signed off from his email with the words, “In His Rest.”

That told me he is probably a Messianic Jew.

But he could be a gentile Christian, perhaps a Christian Zionist,–a Christian who supports Israel and believes the Jews are important in the plan for history. 

In simpler terms, I could see that this person is a Believer.

But all these questions arise:

What does “Rest” mean?
In
Whose “Rest”?
What is a Messianic Jew?
What is a Christian Zionist?
What does a “Believer” believe in?
What was that about a “plan for history”?

Some of these questions will be answered already for those readers who are likely to seek out and stick with this blog, because it is written for Messianic Jews and those Christians who support them, and for all Christians, really, since all Christians should support the Jews and all Christians should understand what is meant by “Rest.”

But these ideas are important for every human being, so if you are here and find these ideas foreign to your mindset,  please spend some time exploring them.

And if you already know these things, please spend some time exploring them, because they are topics with infinite depth, worthy of meditation forever.

    In very brief form:
    What does “Rest” mean? Not working at trying to be good enough to be accepted;
    In Whose “Rest”? Jesus’ rest, the rest made possible by his atoning death;
    What is a Messianic Jew? A Jew who believes Yeshua (Jesus) is the Messiah and Savior of humanity;
    What is a Christian Zionist? A Christian who believes the Jews have a special role in history and that Israel exists as part of that special role;
    What does a “Believer” believe in? Jesus, in his provision, which allows rest;
    What was that about a “plan for history”? I better save that one for a later post.
