Give Peace a Chance?

July 14, 2008

Everyone wants world peace. It is part of popular songs and a desire for most every person. The Bible tells us that there will be world peace, but not like most are expecting it will be.

Micah 4:3-7 ESV
(3) He shall judge between many peoples, and shall decide for strong nations far away; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore;
(4) but they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree, and no one shall make them afraid, for the mouth of the LORD of hosts has spoken.
(5) For all the peoples walk each in the name of its god, but we will walk in the name of the LORD our God forever and ever.
(6) In that day, declares the LORD, I will assemble the lame and gather those who have been driven away and those whom I have afflicted;
(7) and the lame I will make the remnant, and those who were cast off, a strong nation; and the LORD will reign over them in Mount Zion from this time forth and forevermore.

The only time that world peace will be here is when the Prince of Peace returns. That person is Jesus.

Is He part of your life today?
