Summary: What does Jesus have to say about Peace? Why are so many preaching Peace and Safety?

Peace I came not to send peace, but a sword. What is peace?

In a general sense, a state of quiet or tranquility; freedom from disturbance or agitation; applicable to society, to individuals, or to the temper of the mind.

Freedom from agitation or disturbance by the passions, as from fear, terror, anger, anxiety or the like; quietness of mind; tranquility; calmness; quiet of conscience.

Public tranquility; that quiet, order and security, which is guaranteed by the laws; as, to keep the peace; to break the peace. Harmony; concord; a state of reconciliation between parties at variance. Jesus came not to this world to give us any of these things, surprised, don’t be. The Bible states that which is flesh is flesh and that which is spirit is spirit. Why do so many people get so distraught when they hear the truth of scripture? Where in scripture does it state that any nation on this earth will escape the wrath of God, or His Judgment? The lost need to hear the truth, they need to hear that, no matter where you live, no matter where you sleep, no matter what you’ve been told, the wrath of God is coming down upon a disobedient, gainsaying, unrighteous people. Payday is coming. Israeli military intelligence chief Aharon Zeevi was quoted Wednesday as saying Tehran might have the bomb by 2008 if the international community does not halt Iran’s march to acquiring nuclear weapons.

"Iran is the country that has announced that one missile toward Israel will destroy the Jewish state. So we should be concerned about the Iranians’ efforts to develop nuclear weapons," Shalom said.

Many say being a Christian is all, Roses, Milk and Honey, Blue sky and Birds singing, that is so far from the truth that it worries me to hear them say it. I believe what Our Lord said about Christianity and peace.

Luke 12:51 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division: Jesus was saying I have come to divide, to separate, to sever links between families and friends, to find the true worshipers of God. Consider the reason that God sent His Son to earth in the first place, Man was out of control, sin abounded this world was destroying it self from the inside out. You ask, “Why couldn’t He bring peace to this world?” because this world was not under the dominion of God but was under Satan’s dominion, that’s right, Satan had dominion over the world because of Adams fall, resulting in the worlds dominion passing from Adam to Satan. Light and darkness have nothing in common.

Mat 10:34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. A sword of truth, a sword of division, dividing the truth from the lies. Dividing the saints from the hypocrites, dividing this world from the next, a great gulf fixed that no man could cross.


John 14:27 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. The peace the world had to offer was the same peace that I described in the beginning of this sermon, this type of peace is not the same that Jesus came to give. Peace from Jesus was the peace in the heart and soul and spirit, the spiritual peace from the Lord God Almighty, for God is spirit and He seeks those that will worship Him in spirit and truth. Most of mankind do not consider the things of another world at all {we speak of a spiritual world that mankind, not knowing God, cannot see}, because they are asleep. SLOTH’FULNESS, The indulgence of sloth; inactivity; the habit of idleness; laziness. Slothfulness casteth into a deep sleep. Prov 19.

{Spiritually dead to the higher power of God}; or they do not consider them aright, because they sleep and dream. {Nations, Governments and Leaders are always trying to come up with plans to make the world, safer, cleaner, more productive, but they all look at science instead of spirit.} All men should know our moderation as to all earthly things. Shall Christians, who have the light of the blessed gospel shining in their faces, be careless about their souls, and unmindful of another world? {The other world is the world that Jesus was speaking of; He came to bring division to, to bring a sword to, the world of reality, the world of mankind and hatred.} We need the spiritual amour, or the three Christian graces, faith, love, and hope. Faith; if we believe that the eye of God is always upon us, that there is another world to prepare for, we shall see reason to watch and be sober. True and fervent love to God, and the things of God, will keep us watchful and sober. If we have hope of salvation, let us take heed of any thing that would shake our trust in the Lord. We have ground on which to build unshaken hope, when we consider, that salvation is by our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, to atone for our sins and to ransom our souls. We should join in prayer and praise one with another. We should set a good example one before another, and this is the best means to answer the end of society. Thus we shall learn how to live to Him, with whom we hope to live forever. We cannot become involved with the railings of this society, don’t be mislead; this world is going to burn. It is going to pay for its disobedience to God and for rejecting His Son Jesus as Lord and Christ. For too long now mankind has been lulled into a sense of safety and peace, as thou everything will be all right, in the sweet by and by, its high time we consider the end of all things temporal. Some preach that Jesus is coming soon and then ask for money to build bigger and bigger churches, is there something wrong here or is it just me? Are they considering the next world or have they become involved in the temporal, commercial, vanity world that Jesus came to disrupt? Creating monuments to man, not considering that all things shall pass away, for mans glory passes as the grass of the field when the sun beats down upon it and it is consumed in the heat. Revelations states that all nations will compass about the nation of Israel and the Holy city of Jerusalem, when it says ALL it means ALL. Are we to be perminate members of this worldly society or members of the Family of God? And what about this world, didn’t Jesus say something about its virtues? Romans 3:17 And the way of peace have they not known: 1Th 5:3 For when they shall say, peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. On 9/11, America was asleep, they were saying peace and safety, they were slothful, there had to be an awakening of the spirit of the people. In scripture God always had the warriors of Israel prepared to fight, any one that drank water with both hands on their knees was sent home, they were unworthy to be defenders of the people.
