“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” John 14:27
“Peace I give to you — not as the world gives. Where will you find peace in a world filled with chaos?
The peace that I give is not what the world would give you. My Peace goes beyond your understanding.
It is a peace that goes beyond anything you can acquire in this world. It is not found anywhere in this world.
Where would you find this Peace?
Would you find it through the acquiring of great money?
Would you find it in the beauty of a lovely home?
Would you find it in the acquisition of guns and artillery?
Would you find it in a beautiful symphony or a poem, or an incredible piece of art?
Would you find it in companionship or love?
I tell you that my presence ushers in the peace that only I can give you. It is said that, ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news.’
And indeed, this is true, and yet in bringing in the good news, it is not even the realization that I AM the good news. It is not in the ‘knowing’ about Me, but it is in KNOWING ME.
For in the world you may have many friends, but you may not really ‘know’ many of them.
You may know of their interests.
You may know of the things they like and dislike.
You may know many things about them.
But those things about them is not the same as knowing the person inside of them.
For when I come to you in Spirit and in Truth, I come not as someone that you know upon this earth.
I come to you in your innermost being. I come to that chamber hidden from human eyes and understanding.
It is there that I would carve out a chamber. It is there that I would abide within you.
It is there that I would be to you, more than any earthly mother or father could be.
There I would give to you My Peace that passes all understanding.”
