There is only one true peace and that is peace not as the world gives; but peace from the everlasting and loving father. He is the creator of this universe. God will judge the world and establish his peaceful kingdom for those who love him.
We have been assured of a peaceful co-existence among people of different races, beliefs, ideologies, cultures, societies, countries, etc. But hatred, discrimination, racism, etc, haven’t ceased to come out of our fellow human beings. We do claim to need peace, not as the world gives but God. Oh Yes!, God has the perfect plan to help mankind enjoy absolute peace if he would change from his evil ways.
Having your peace of mind is one of the most important things to a happy and long life. It costs nothing but, today some people could barely live a day without facing discrimination, persecution, gender inequality, intolerance, etc.
Various governments, NGOs, international bodies, activists, and others have been working hard to bring harmonious living among individuals with differences without any troubles. But mankind’s heart is always filled with evil. Someone will find a way to disrupt the little peace that would be available.
Only Jesus can give a perfect peace the world needs. He said:
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you; I do not give it to you as the world does. Do not let your hearts be distressed or lacking in courage”(John 14:27).
Understanding The World Today
Do we have peacemakers in our world today?. Yes, but very few. Genuine love for one another brings peace. Unfortunately, there is too much hatred in the world.” Peace” has become a foreign language to many.
The world today is crying out for understanding, tolerance, love, forgiveness, etc. We need peace not as the world gives, but a true kind of peace that will set every heart to show perfect love for each other. How can we find it?. People’s cry seems to fall on deaf ears. Since sin entered this world, true peace hasn’t existed among humanity.
The problem begins in the house.” Charity begins at home.” People grow up with hate, greed with antagonistic behaviors from the house. They become extremists and cause havoc in the family, society, workplaces, etc.
The devil loves such kind of people. They are good tools for destroying and killing innocent people. They can even cause mass destruction.
According to the Bible Satan is the author of confusion and war. He is God’s greatest enemy and will always be. Until God destroys him in the end— he will forever incite people to do evil. God is the author of peace and those who love him must peacemakers.
“For God is not [the author] of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints”. (1Corinthians 14:33)
The Trend Of Living In Peace
God wants us to love peace. For he has a special reward for those people.
“Blessed [are] the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God”( Mat 5:9).
He is a peaceful God. And his children must love peace. When we are talking about true peace; It is peace from God, not man.
The Battle Of Finding Peace Not As The World Gives
We all want peace in our lives, but the world is so corrupted that there is hatred in our various houses. Exceptionally, some evil people hate peace. Sometimes, we hear the world superpowers, noblemen government officials, etc. say; They will ensure peace among humanity. They say they will bring peace to our doorsteps but non has been able to do that entirely.
Well, collectively, we can promote peace but that ain’t going to be sufficient. We need the intervention of God.
Even if they bring peace to certain people, how quality could that be?. There is something missen and that thing is what I what us to find in this post. I talked about the missen link at the beginning of this article. This link is “Jesus Christ“.
We can find true peace through Christ Jesus. He said if your neighbor slaps you, turn the other cheek for him. Humility, love, respect, forgiveness are some of the things we need to live in a peaceful environment.
World leaders can’t give us true peace. Although the UN has prevented a third world war. But civil war and many kinds of violence are going on in our various societies. There is hatred everywhere. If racism, hatred, greed, envy, etc. ain’t going to stop, then true peace is far from reach.
Remember the prophecies in the bible. God said, in the end-time nation will rise against nation…..this is what we see now. No human can end it. The peace that can wipe out every tear and heal every wound is peace not as the world gives, but God himself. Satan is controlling the world now.
I believe you would find it encouraging to read my article about Bible verses about the world. You will get to understand how God has planned to save the world from evil men.
The devil(the father of lies) knows his time is near,so he will incite people to cause more harm. Satan is the mastermind behind the wars rising in our world. There are too many divisions in humanity.
No one can bring absolute peace to the seven billion people living in the world today, except God!. But, unfortunately, we are not being godly enough to deserve true peace.
Till hatred jealousy, racism, envy, etc. is eradicated. Mankind would never succeed in bringing absolute peace to this world.
The Biggest Question About A Peaceful Life
Why is the production of nuclear weapons on the rise?. Are the world superpowers playing around us?.
The purpose of this is to cause massive destruction against enemies. It would shock you to know the cost of weaponry production. If you find out about the amount of money many countries are channeling into nuclear weapons; You would be shocked!.
It cost some $80 billion to develop and build 21 of these planes, or $4 billion per B2 bomber, and the current life extension(refurbishment) program will cost $10 billion. How much does peace cost?. Absolutely nothing. What is the future of this world?.
Poverty is swallowing millions of people. There is an inadequate supply of food and water. According to “The Hunger Project”, 815 million people do not have enough food to eat. 767 million people live on $1.90 a day. Where is the world heading to?. The saddest thing is, when there is an explosion, poor people suffer most.
Today, it is Iraq, Syria, North Korea. Tomorrow it is Libya, Somalia, Afghanistan, etc. Innocent souls are taken haphazardly and no one is ending it. It ain’t getting better but worse each day.
