The Quest for Lasting Peace

 

The quest for lasting peace among men dates back farther than the historical record, yet for all of the striving no lasting peace can be found.  Some may ask, “why?”

Why?  Because there is no outward solution to solve the inward problem.  If what is within is corrupt then surely our behaviors will reflect it.

So, for all the noble striving for peace we can be sure that we will only see more of the same.  Men’s corrupt hearts compel them to pursue their selfish desires at any cost.

Surely it will not be long before we are willing to sacrifice our freedoms for the sake of peace.  This peace will come at a high price.  To add insult to injury the one who promises this peace will bring the worst of wars mankind has ever seen.

The only solution is a change what is at the very heart of man.  The old, selfish nature must die to be replaced with a new nature that not only desires, but truly understands peace.

You may say, “that’s impossible!” and in some ways you are correct.  In and of ourselves there is no solution.  The corruption of our hearts is like a cancer that remains incurable.

There is but one man in all of history who lived without being corrupted.  This man laid down his life willingly on our behalf.  He knew the hopelessness of our situation and he did not sit idly by.  His sacrifice not only paved the way for our transformation, it demonstrated the kind of selflessness that will bring lasting peace.

The story does not end there!  This perfect man is not just a man, He is the one and only son of God.  Perhaps you have heard of him.  His name is Jesus.  His sacrifice was not only for a few, it was for all who would receive it.  Rebirth into this new man is for one and for all.

Are you tired of watching the news?  Are you tired of the endless warfare?  Peace is right before you, all you need to do is embrace it.

The Quest for Lasting Peace — 2 Comments

  1. Job 22:21 (NKJV)
    “Now acquaint yourself with Him, and be at peace; Thereby good will come to you.

  2. You have to realize that before the devil was? even before the earth was? Jesus Christ the Son of the Living God already was! We live not according to the present day and age of understanding of men and perception, for in the present day and age we face many Misconstrue misconceptions!From the Prophets of Old to the present day and Time, the Gospel of Jesus Christ will resound through time! now what is the Gospel? READ THE BIBLE! and find out! read the New Testament and find the full essence of the Truth between the Lies! There was no NUKES! back then, there were no tanks or jets or American DOLLARS or money currency with the all seeing eye.
    Now what has changed in this present day and in time? The TECHNOLOGICAL AGE which will empower the SON OF PERDITION to mimic the LIVING SON OF GODS, after the Church is raptured will be instituted, among all of fallen man who have rejected and fallen away from The GOSPELS Grace!

    What is the MYSTERY? Number #1 there are 2 mysteries in the Bible. One is the Great Harlot and the other is Jesus Christ and the GOSPEL! the Son of the Living God who is and was and is to come! the one who died and ROSE AGAIN ON THE 3rd DAY! for JERUSALEM IS HIS PLACE!. Which one is eternal salvation? and which is the ETERNAL DEATH? People decide for they are giving a free will choice to accept Jesus Christ the Holy Risen Son of God, according to the never ending grace of the MOST HIGH GOD!

    Are we all called? no! many are called, but yet even fewer are chosen! THIS UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is sealed unto its judgment! does the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HOLD THE POWER AND KEYS TO WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE? or does the GOSPEL SAY THAT JESUS CHRIST Is the FULLNESS OF WISDOM? how many are falling warrior for the GOSPEL OF CHRIST? or how many are serving the Present day and age for a NEW WORLD ORDER ACCORDING TO MANS EYES/>? 1 TIMOTHY 2:1! Jesus Christ is the Fullness of OUR WISDOM! read the word of God the new testament and FIND OUT!

    IF I recall correctly, in my inebriated state? THE WORD OF GOD IS THE ETERNAL SALVATION OF MAN! now how do I know this? through the power of SALVATION which I received through Believing that Jesus Christ died and rose again! to the father on the Third Day! the ANCIENT OF DAYS!!! but his Grace is more than sufficient! to call who accept it! in this present day and age!
    You can fool a computer! and twist the Word of GOD! but the MOST HIGH GOD! is the author the one who knows us all! but only through the BLOOD of Jesus Christ! the holy risen son of God! are we in this present age, called his own! Read the NEW TESTAMENT! a WAR OF HTE WORLDS!

    Do I deceive you? or does all man and humanity who stands between the parables that were spoken by the Lord Jesus Christ?

    If I am mere, man, and the HEART IS DECEITFUL and the flesh works is vain? then who do I claim to be? ANYONE in PARTICULAR? Or a SINNER of this present world and age! saved by his GRACE IN MY OWN PERSONAL BELIEF OF WHO JESUS CHRIST iS.  THE SON OF GOD ? I accept him and receive him and I did long ago!
    iS HE A MERE PROPHET? or is he the FACE OF THE LIVING GOD? the Third person of the TRINITY ? FREE CHOICE YOU DECIDE! who the DECEIVER IS! JESUS CHRIST OR THE DEVIL OF TORMENT who runs this pattern of thinknig in this present day and age!

    What spirit do we listen to? Jezebels? the COMPUTERS AND THE BEAST? the sattelites orbit and the POWERS AT BE? Or do we realize that ETERNITY? comes with no price, for death in SATANS GRAVE IS ETERNAL DESTINY TO ALL WHO REJECT THE FULLNESS OF JESUS CHRIST AND HIS HOLY RISEN SACRIFICE FOR THE WORLD? now who sets that standards of scales? the ILLUMINATI EYE? OR DOES BEFORE US WHO HAVE DIED?
    Either way it goes, Jesus Christ is the HOLY RISEN SON OF GOD! is not a POWER ENCOUNTER BUT A TRUTH ENCOUNTER WHICH SATAN SO MUCH HATES! accept Jesus Christ, the Word of the LIVING GOD, and the wrath of GOD YOU SHALL NEVER FACE!
    AM I CRAZY? for the POWER OF HTE GOSPEL IS FULISHNESS TO THOSE WHO ARE IN THIS PRESENT DAY AND AGE! to deceive even the ELECT!

    NOW WHAT MAN POWER FROM ADAM AND EVE DOES SATAN HOLD? EXCEPT THE JUDGMENT OF THE LIVING GOD UPON HIS EARTH? IS HIS WRATH NOT MORE POWERFUL THAN 10 MILLION NUCLEAR WARHEADS? DOES NOT THE POEWR OF JESUS THE SON OF GOD COVER THOSE WHO BELIEVE EVEN BEYOND THEIR POWER? ARE THERE NOT EVIL CORPORATE GANGSTERS AND MAFIAS OF HYPOCRITES WHO RUN THEW WORLD ? THEN WHO ARE WE SUBMITTING TO? THE MACHINE? and COMPUTER WHO CAN TRICK THE BRAIN? OR DID JESUS CHRIST AND THE POWER OF HIS WORD REALLY DIE IN VAIN?
