How Will It Come? Peace on Earth

The Bible’s answer

Peace on earth comes not through human endeavors, but through the Kingdom of God, the heavenly government ruled by Christ Jesus. Consider how the Bible teaches us about this wonderful hope.

God “fights to stop war on the ends of the earth” and “He fulfills His word to bring peace to the land of rejoicing!” – Psalm 46: 9; Luke 2:14, Good News Translation.
God rules the heavens from all over the earth. (Daniel Eliminate: 14) As a world government, it eliminates nationalism, which is the source of many conflicts.
He confirms that Jesus, the ruler of the kingdom of God, is called the “Prince of Peace” and that “there is no end to peace.” – Isaiah 9: 6, 7.

Those who are determined to continue the fight are not allowed to remain under the kingdom, because “anyone who loves violence [the Spirit of God] is absolutely abhorrent.” – Psalm 11: 5; Proverbs 2:22.

God teaches His people how to live peacefully. Explaining the consequences of this teaching, the Bible says: “They must kill their swords in plowed fountains, their spears with pruning scissors. The nation will not lift the sword against the nation, and they will no longer learn war. ”- Isaiah 2: 3, 4.

Already, millions of Jehovah’s Witnesses around the world are learning from God how to be at peace. (Matthew 5: 4) Although we belong to many different races and live in more than 230 different countries, we refuse to take up arms against our fellow man.

Everyone wants peace, though it still feels like something has been found. What is peace can be defined as “peace, harmony or security”. Depending on the situation, it may mean “well-being” or “welfare.” Different versions of the word peace appear 429 times in the King James Version of the Bible. . There are different types of peace, including false peace, inner peace, peace with God and peace with man.

In the Old Testament, shalom was the primary Hebrew word for “peace”, and it refers to the relationship between people (Genesis 34:21), nations (1 Kings 5:12), and God with men (Psalm 85: 8). Peace is the desired position in each of these vowels, and the shalom is often associated with a covenant or vow. An acquaintance (literally, “a friend of my peace in Psalm 61: 4”) will be with you a relaxed, faithful companion. “Peace” is a standard prayer (1 Samuel 25: 6), and is still used in many cultures to this day.

Peace is directly related to the actions and attitudes of individuals; But that is ultimately the gift of God (Isaiah 45: 7; Leviticus 26: 6; John 14:27). The existence of peace refers to God’s blessings on man’s obedience (Isaiah 32:17; Malachi 2: 5) and faith (Isaiah 26: 3). There is no peace for the wicked (Isaiah 48:22).

Peace is so precious, it is not surprising that it is sometimes counterfeit. Empty promises of peace serve to deceive others. Fraudulent people speak words of peace when they secretly plan evil (Obadiah 1: 7). The Antichrist accepts a deal, produces temporary peace, then suddenly collapses as he reveals his true colors (Daniel 9:27). False teachers proclaim peace when God actually pronounces judgment (Ezekiel 13: 10-16). In Jeremiah’s day, religious elders dealt only with the symptoms of national problems rather than addressing the sinful origin of the crisis. These false prophets declare that everything is right between God and Israel: “Peace and peace” He said when there was no true peace (Jeremiah 6:14).

In the New Testament, Irene is the basic Greek word for “peace,” and refers to rest and peace. The central focus of peace in the New Testament is the arrival of Jesus Christ, as the angels proclaimed in Luke 2:14 (“Peace on earth.”). Isaiah icted that the Messiah would be the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9: 6), and he was called the God of Peace in 2 Thessalonians 3:16. Only through Christ’s justification can we find peace with God (Romans 5: 1), and this peace protects our hearts and minds (Philippians 4: 7).

God commands us to find peace (Psalm 37:14; Matthew 5: 4). We must “do everything possible to progress toward peace” (Romans 14:19). Of course, there are some who do not want peace, but we are still trying to live in peace with them (Romans 12:18).

Believers have a responsibility to keep “the peace of God” in their hearts (Colossians 3:15). This means that we have the opportunity to believe in God’s promises (His laws of peace) or to believe in ourselves and reject the peace He has provided. Jesus gave peace based on the fact that His disciples had conquered the world (John 14:27; 16:33). Peace is the fruit of the Spirit, so, if we allow the Spirit of God to rule in our lives, we will experience its peace. According to Romans 8: 6, the spiritual-minded will find life and peace.

Until Jesus establishes true, lasting peace (see Isaiah 11: 1–10), there will be wars and conflicts in the world, but God will give his peace to those who trust in him. Jesus paved the way for our peace (Isaiah 53: 5) and we have the opportunity to have peace with God. Once peace rules are established in their hearts, we can share that peace with others; We become peace publishers (Isaiah 52: 7) and reconciliation ministers (2 Corinthians 5:18).
