There is only one true peace and that is peace not as the world gives.It is peace from the everlasting and loving father. The creator of this universe.He is about to judge the world and establish his peaceful kingdom for those who love him.
Peace Not As The World Gives:
Only Jesus can give the 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 peace. Peace not as the world gives,but a true kind of peace.How can we find it?.People’s cry seem 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 behaviours from the house. They become extremists and cause havoc.
The devil love such kind of people.They are good tools for killing innocent people and causing mass destruction. Satan is the author of war.He is God’s greatest enemy and will always be.Untill God destroys him in the end. God is the author of peace and those who love him must love peace.
“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 want us to love peace.For he has 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
We all want peace in our lives,but the world is so corrupted that there is hatred in our various houses.Exceptionally,there are evil people who hate peace.Sometimes, we hear the world super powers, noble men government officials etc. say;They will ensure peace among humanity.They say they will bring peace to our door steps but non has been able to do that entirely.
Well, collectively, we can promote peace but that ain’t going to be sufficient.
Even if they bring peace to certain people, how quality is that peace?.There is something missen and that thing is what I what us to find in this post.Actually, I talked about the missen link in the beginning of this article. This link is “Jesus Christ“.
We can find true peace.Peace not as the world gives.It is peace from the peaceful father.World leaders can’t give us true peace. There is hatred everywhere. If racism,hatred, greed, envy etc. ain’t going to stop, then true peace is far from reach.
Remember the prophesies 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 tears and heal every wound is peace not as the world gives.It is not sufficient.
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 much divisions in humanity.No one can bring absolute peace to the seven billion people living in the world today.
Till hatred jealousy, racism, envy etc. is eradicated. Mankind would never succeed in bringing absolute peace to this world.
The Biggest Question
Why is production of nuclear weapons on the rise?. Are the world super powers 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 isn’t or 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 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.
