Jesus DID NOT Come to Bring Peace! 5

Evangelizing the Church in the Age of Delusion

jesus did not come

to bring peace!


"The God of peace
will soon crush Satan
under your feet."
Romans 16:20,
bold & underline mine
Again, "The God of peace will soon CRUSH SATAN! under your feet."  Wow!  A sincere and comprehensive study of the Bible reveals to all who would receive it that:

1.  Indeed, Jesus is the "Prince of Peace" (Isaiah 9:6).  However,

2.  There will not be peace upon the earth until Jesus Himself returns to establish it!
  WHY?  Because,

3.  Jesus is also the truth!  If everyone on the earth received and submitted to the truth that Jesus represents, then THERE WOULD BE peace upon the earth.  Sadly, however, everyone in the world DOES NOT submit to who Jesus is, nor do they follow what He says.  Thus, chaos is ever-increasing.

4.  Jesus came to set mankind free! (see Galatians 5:1).  But the freedom Jesus offers only comes from practicing the truth that Jesus preaches.   Practically, the road to freedom is paved with truth.  Jesus put it this way,
"You will know the truth,
and the truth will make you free."

-John 8:32, bold mine

5.  The rejection of the truth that Jesus offers ALWAYS LEADS TO BONDAGE!  Today's United States of America is a CLASSIC EXAMPLE.  Generally, the USA has rejected Jesus for so long, that our freedom continues to dissipate like the morning dew
Outside of widespread repentance
and a return to what made this country
"exceptional," bondage (at best),
or complete destruction (at worst),
is inevitable for the
United States of America.

"The kingdom of God is not
eating and drinking, but righteousness and

and joy in the Holy Spirit."

-Romans 14:17, bold mine

The "peace" of the Holy Spirit is only found in the "kingdom of God."  And the "kingdom of God" exists only in those places, and among those people who submit to the King of the kingdom of God, Jesus Christ.
"Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they shall be called sons of God."

-Matthew 5:9, bold mine

"If possible, so far as it depends on you,
be at peace with all men."

-Romans 12:18, bold mine

Unfortunately, it isn't always possible.  Thus, chaos will reign until the return of Jesus Christ!
The quest for unity is noble,
but when the cost is
a compromise of the truth,
it becomes fodder for the Devil.
