  Study Tools

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.
