Jews, Christians and Muslims have a totally different understanding of the concept of “peace”.
Many people talks about “peace”, and how they love “peace”.
But do we really have the same understanding of this word and the concept of “peace”?
When we say “God is love” the Bible surly not explaining “agape” as love for hamburgers, or “love at first sight”.
So what about “peace”?
For a religious Jew, “peace” is a concept when every Jew obey God. Only when a qualified numbers of Jews up hold the Sabbath, there can be true Shalom. The key to “Peace” lies in the hands of man. The reason why Israel and Jews do not live in “peace”, is their own disobedience towards the Law of Moses.
Messianic Christians and Jews will have a totally different understand of “peace”. They will claim the Messiah has brought us peace with God. That is the only true peace there is. This peace is not a product of mans work, bur purely an act of God Him self.
The only peace deal there is, was signed when Jesus the Messiah gained His victory at the cross at Calvary Hill in Jerusalem 2.000 years ago.
Jesus the Messiah said that He would bring us peace. But not “peace” as the World understand it, or the “peace” that can be found through compromising on the truth. This is the peace that exist in the midst of tribulation, and will overcome the worst of storms.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
For a Muslim, both the Jewish and Christian understanding of “peace” is fraudulent. Every Muslim has from childhood been told that “peace” can only be found, the day all humans live in submission to those who follow “allah” and his messenger Muhammad. To achieve this “peace” there must first be war. War against the infidels.
This is deception, that leads people away from the truth.
When terror comes, they will seek peace, but there will be none.
“‘Because they lead my people astray, saying, “Peace,” when there is no peace, and because, when a flimsy wall is built, they cover it with whitewash.
The worst obstacle to Islam, the way towards “peace” is the existence of a Jewish state in the heart of the Middle East. It is simply not possible for Muslims to achieve “peace” as long as this Zionist state is present on Earth.
To put this in a Messianic perspective:
The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace;
and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.
The final antichrist will build his P.E.A.C.E plan on a global compromise. Those who stand on the Messianic version of peace, ca obviously not accept this falsehood. The price will be everyone claiming that the followers of Yeshua being the enemy of “peace”.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
2 Peter 1:2
Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.
You have to be one of them, if you have the Kingdom of Heaven in mind, and understand that the purpose of our faith is the salvation of our souls. Regardless if there is war or peace around us.
