Jesus is our banner, a glorious resting place.

“And in that day there shall be a Root of Jesse, Who shall stand as a banner to the people; for the Gentiles shall seek Him, and His resting place shall be glorious.” Isaiah 11:10.

Rest, menuchah; Strong’s # 4496.   Resting place; place of stillness, consolation, peace, rest; a quiet place; it also speaks of the condition of restfulness. Menuchan comes from nuach, a verb meaning, “To rest, soothe, settle down, comfort.” Noah’s parents named him because they saw in him a lifetime (Gen.5:29) of comfort. The name “Noah,” comes from this root.

Isaiah 28:12 says, “This is the resting place; let the weary rest!” In Psalm 23:2, “He leads me beside the still waters of menuchah (the waters of quietness).” I am told sheep will not drink from troubled waters; in fact, they will go without. Numbers 10:33 points out that the Israelites were searching for a resting place. They sought a place, we have a Menuchan living within us.

    What a place of peace His resting place is! Don’t think I have experienced it fully.

    I have recently been reading in Numbers and the Israelites never found their rest until King David and King Solomon. And then It didn’t last very long.

    The Gentiles and the Jews still seek Him, and He is there to give menuchah to all who come.

    More Light from the pot.

    Thanks, Manny.
