Peace



  1. Rest in God's love, which is expressed in his offer of complete salvation. - From the Holman New Testament Commentary - Ephesians 1:18-23 - pg. 94.
  2.  If this world of noise and confusion, where can we find a place of peace and tranquillity? If Christ is the Lord of our hearts, then we can turn inward. Christ is the giver of peace. He transforms our hearts into refuges, where the clamor of the outside world cannot enter in. Call upon the Lord, and He will surely grant you peace. 

    Prayer: Father, I am tired of the furious pace of the world. Sometimes I just want to run and hide. Allow me to run to You. Be the source of my peace, Lord. Amen. - From the Monday, August 3, 2015 Wisdom from the Psalms by Dan Dick.
  3. Peace is God’s gift to mankind, achieved by him at the cross of Christ. Before the cross we were at enmity with God. Now we are at peace, God having made peace with us. We are to show the effects of that peace in all circumstances through what we would call “peace of mind” (Phil. 4:6–7). It is to reign in the home (1 Cor. 7:12–16), between the Jew and the Gentile (Eph. 2:14–17), within the church (Eph. 4:3; Col. 3:15), and in the relationships of the believer with all men (Heb. 12:14).  - From the commentary on John 14:16-18 from the Boice Expositional Commentary by James Montgomery Boice.
  4. Enjoy the fact that you belong to God. - From the Holman New Testament Commentary - Ephesians 1:18-23 - pg. 94.
  5. Be grateful that God has forgiven your sin and given you eternal life. - From the Holman New Testament Commentary - Ephesians 1:18-23 - pg. 95.
  6. Apart from the Prince of Peace, there is no peace. It will always evade us as long as we trust in a path to peace created by man. But one day, Jesus will return and bring real and lasting peace. Hope for that day, when world peace will be here for goodfrom the Prince of Peace, there is no peace. It will always evade us as long as we trust in a path to peace created by man. But one day, Jesus will return and bring real and lasting peace. Hope for that day, when world peace will be here for good.
    PUT YOUR HOPE FOR PEACE NOT IN MAN, BUT IN THE PRINCE OF PEACE WHO WILL RETURN AND REIGN FOREVER! - From the October 25, 2016 PowerPoint devotional by Dr. Jack Graham.
  7. Fretting is the caressing of the old nature.  Peace is the gift of the Heavenly Father to those who put everything on Him. - From page 89 of the book Illustrating Great Themes of Scripture by Donald Grey Barnhouse.
  8. Every believer has complete salvation from God. - From the Holman New Testament Commentary - Ephesians 1:18-23 - pg. 95.
  9. John 14:27 - 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.
  10. Every believer has a great inheritance waiting for him in heaven. - From the Holman New Testament Commentary - Ephesians 1:18-23 - pg. 95.
  11. Every believer has the Holy Spirit within him. - From the Holman New Testament Commentary - Ephesians 1:18-23 - pg. 95.

  13. God is bigger than my circumstances. - From the Holman New Testament Commentary - Philippians 1 - Pg 212.
  14. When we are ready to die, we are best prepared to live. - From the Holman New Testament Commentary - Philippians 1 - Pg 212.
  15. Rest in the fact that God is with you in the midst of difficulties. - From the Holman New Testament Commentary - Philippians 1 - Pg 212.
  16. Those who cannot be content with the necessities of life pay an enormous price for all the things they pursue. Consider the high cost of covetousness, how seeking after the possessions and pleasures of this world affects so many people’s…
    • marriages
    • children
    • health
    • good name and reputation
    • opportunities to enjoy the simple life and its blessings
    • peace of mind
    • chances to hear the gospel and to gain eternal life
    • rewards at the judgment seat of Christ

    The price of having both hands full is not worth the cost unless a person can balance work with other obligations and needs in life. Proverbs frequently emphasizes the value of a peaceful, restful spirit:
    “Better is little with the fear of the Lord than great treasure and trouble therewith” (Pr. 15:16).
    “Better is a little with righteousness than great revenues without right” (Pr. 16:8).
    Better is a dry morsel, and quietness therewith, than an house full of sacrifices with strife” (Pr. 17:1).

    The life of the believer is about more than just things, the pleasures and possessions of this world. Jesus said:
    “And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth” (Lu. 12:15).
    “Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?” (Mt. 6:25).
    Jesus went on to say in Matthew 6:32 that those whose focus is solely on the things of this world live like the heathen, those who do not know the Lord.- From the reading about Ecclesiastes 4:6 in the Preacher’s Outline and Sermon Bible Old and New Testament Commentary Set (44-Volumes) - by Alpha-Omega Ministries, Publisher: Leadership Ministries Worldwide
  17. Death is merely a doorway to eternal life.  The adventure is what comes after death - being in the presence of Christ.  - Heaven - Randy Alcorn.
  18. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?....Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord - Romans 8:35, 38-39.    - Heaven - Randy Alcorn.
  19. Not only will death not separate us from Christ - it will actually usher us into His presence.  Then, at the final resurrection, Christ will demonstrate his omnipotence by turning death on its head, making forever alive what appeared forever buried.  - Heaven - Randy Alcorn.
  20. Shalom is the Hebrew counterpart of "peace," meaning wholeness.  Peace is a condition of completeness, a work totally finished through Christ, yet progressively realized.   - From the Holman New Testament Commentary - I Thessalonians  Pg 7.
  21. In earthly terms physical distance, illness, or incapacity of another kind may keep us from the enjoyment of an inheritance. In spiritual terms other things may do it. Temptation and consequent trials may keep us from peace. We can be so wrapped up in the temptation that we forget the gifts of God. Ignorance will keep peace from us. If we do not know that God is sovereign and that he works all things according to his perfect plan, then our God will be too small for us and we will tremble for him and for ourselves. Sin will also destroy our peace, for we cannot have full fellowship with God when we are willfully sinning. Unbelief will destroy it. All these items will keep our legacy from us. But if, on the other hand, we do what Isaiah refers to in the twenty-sixth chapter of his prophecy, we will know that peace fully. Isaiah speaks in perfect confidence when he says, “You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you” (v.3). What is the necessary ingredient? Trusting in God! The staying of the mind upon him! If we look at the churning waves around us, like Peter we will begin to sink. If we focus on Jesus, we will find ourselves walking even on the stormiest seas.  - From the commentary on John 14:27 from the Boice Expositional Commentary by James Montgomery Boice.
  22. Peace can be achieved only through Jesus Christ.  Peace deals with our legal standing in the court of God's justice.  No person can ever survive the divine judgement without divine intervention.  The cross and resurrection give us access to God through faith in Christ; we are admitted into his presence.  Peace from God also brings wholeness, restoring the fragmented condition of humankind.  Through Christ, we are able to grow and develop into a complete self and personality as God designed.  - From the Holman New Testament Commentary - 2 Thessalonians 1:1-2  pg. 89. 
  23. The Messiah will bring peace to the people and nations of the world (v. 5). All military equipment and uniforms that are so often covered with blood will be cast aside and burned. Never again will the military equipment or uniforms be produced. Peace will sweep the earth, both peace within the human soul and peace among nations. Universal harmony will exist everywhere. Of course, this is a clear reference to the future kingdom of the Messiah, the messianic kingdom known as the Millennium.
    Some of the predictions in this passage were obviously fulfilled when God defeated Assyria and delivered Jerusalem (see outline and notes—Is. 37:1-38 for more discussion). And as the apostle Matthew clearly states, other events found their fulfillment when Christ Himself came to earth (Mt. 4:13-16). But the ultimate fulfillment of the prophecy regarding the bright and glorious future will be in the last days of human history, during the millennial reign of Christ upon earth. (See outline and note—Is. 2:1-5). Also see Deeper Study #2—Is. 2:1-5.) For now, however, the emphasis is upon the peace that the Messiah will bring to human hearts and to the nations of the world.
    “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” (Jn. 14:27).
    “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (Jn. 16:33).
    “The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:)” (Ac. 10:36).
    “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Ro. 5:1).
    “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be” (Ro. 8:6-7).
    “For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost” (Ro. 14:17).
    “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law” (Ga. 5:22-23).

    “For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us” (Ep. 2:14).
    “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Ph. 4:6-7).
    “And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven” (Col. 1:20).
    “And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful” (Col. 3:15).
    “Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it” (1 Pe. 3:11).
    “Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it” (Ps. 34:14).
    “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed” (Is. 53:5).

  24. Heaven holds delight and wholeness for body and soul.  Here the complete person will find fulfillmentof desire by being joined in unhindered fellowship with God for whom he was created.  - From the Holman New Testament Commentary - 2 Thessalonians 1:9  pg. 92. 
  25. “Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it” (Ps. 34:14).
  26. Jesus gives peace. But the gift of peace is appropriated only by those who depend on him, trust him, and remain close to him in their living of the Christian life.- From commentary on John 16:31-33 from the Boice Expositional Commentary Series (27 Volumes) by James Montgomery Boice.
  27. Christ's coming will begin the eternal magnificence of his presence, the ceaseless experience of our desire - God himself. - From the Holman New Testament Commentary - 2 Thessalonians 1:10  pg. 92. 
  28. “And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord” (Col. 3:15-16).
  29. Encouragement and hope are present realities for the believer.  The comfort and courage that God gives the Christian are in stark contrast to what the world gives.  God's comfort and courage reach to the depths of the soul and spirit.  They are not fleeting or contrived; neither are they attained through self-effort.  These are graces, gifts from God to his children.  In the face of difficulty, discouragement, persecution, and shattered dreams, God brings encouragement.  He also gives good hope - the certainty of a good future. - From the Holman New Testament Commentary - 2 Thessalonians 2:16  pg. 112. 
  30. In Thessalonians 3:16 Paul offers a prayer on behalf of believers, asking that the Lord of peace Himself give you peace.  Paul drew attention to the Lord as a giver.  Peace is the desire, but it is the Lord Jesus Christ himself who arrests our attention and captivates our thoughts.  Paul directed our gaze toward the Lord, who intervenes on behalf of his children.  From Him comes the gift of peace.  We cannot attain it on our own, but we wait for it in trusting anticipation - a peace born of God.  The peace Paul prayed for exists apart from circumstance. - From the Holman New Testament Commentary - 2 Thessalonians 3:16  pg. 130. 
  31. Peace describes the heart at rest and in harmony with God; it includes a tranquility of the soul independent of circumstances.  All of these come only from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.  - From the Holman New Testament Commentary - 1 Timothy 1:1-2  pg. 144. 
  32. The Messiah will be called the Prince of Peace. He is the promised Savior of the world, the One who will bring peace to the human heart and peace among the nations. Note the word Prince, which indicates that the Messiah will be a ruler who governs in peace. He will achieve His purposes through methods of peace and carry on His work in a peaceful spirit. The people over whom He rules will be a people of peace. While the Messiah rules upon the earth, there will be no more war, brutality, divisiveness, prejudice, hatred, or bitterness. Peace will reign throughout the world.
    But even more important, because the Messiah will bring peace to the human heart, He will solve the problem of mankind’s alienation from God. He will reconcile people to God. And when people are reconciled to God, they have peace with God, and the peace of God floods their hearts. They walk through life with the full assurance that their sins are forgiven and they are accepted by God. Confidence floods their souls, the confidence that they will live eternally with the Father and with the Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, the promised Messiah.  - From the reading about Isaiah 9:6-7 in the Preacher’s Outline and Sermon Bible Old and New Testament Commentary Set (44-Volumes) - by Alpha-Omega Ministries, Publisher: Leadership Ministries Worldwide
  33. God desires order, peace, and holiness in our lives, in our worship, and in our relationships within the church and our communities.  This reflects the order, constancy, and righteous character of God.  When we live this way, God is revealed and people will embrace him as Savior. - From the Holman New Testament Commentary - 1 Timothy 2:15 pg. 172.
  34. Money does not buy happiness, but what exactly does it buy?  What does preoccupation with material goodies get us?  Admittedly, a little more comfort.  Most certainly, a lot more headaches.  Without a doubt, loss in the life to come.  We all need to understand that contentment is not found in circumstances or stuff.  Peace of soul is found in pursuing godliness, in chasing after God. - From the Holman New Testament Commentary - 1 Timothy 6  pg. 239.
  35. Philippians 4:6-7 - Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
  36. Hebrews 12:14 - 14 Strive for peace with everyone, and for the  holiness  without which no one will see the Lord.   This verse provides two indicators of the level paths that believers should follow.  First, we are to make every effort to live in peace with all men.  We must make every effort to maintain peace while we endure discipline.  Second, we must seek holiness, for without holiness no one will see the Lord.  People who would fellowship with the Lord must detest evil and pursue purity (Matt. 5:8).  To see the Lord involves communion with him, but it may also include an anticipation of Christ's return (see 1 John 3:2).  - From the Kindle Book "the Holman New Testament Commentary - Hebrews 12,  B. A Call to Action, Supporting Idea, at location 5325.
  37. Within society and within the heart of every human being is a longing for peace and tranquility. The good news is that there is great hope and a wonderful promise for the world. The Lord promises a day in which there will be no more war or conflict, a day in which the human heart will rest in peace and tranquility. This day will be when the Lord Jesus Christ returns and sets up His kingdom on earth. This is the wonderful message of the present Scripture. The Savior is returning to establish God’s kingdom on earth, a kingdom of perfect righteousness and justice. - From the reading about Isaiah 11:1 - 12:6 in the Preacher’s Outline and Sermon Bible Old and New Testament Commentary Set (44-Volumes) - by Alpha-Omega Ministries, Publisher: Leadership Ministries Worldwide
  38. Hebrews 12:14 - 14 Strive for peace with everyone, and for the  holiness  without which no one will see the Lord.   This verse provides two indicators of the level paths that believers should follow.  Holiness is coupled with living in peace.  A right relationship with God leads to right relationships with fellow believers.  Although we will not always feel loving toward all other believers, we must pursue peace as we become more Christlike.   - From the Life Application Bible Hebrews 12 12:14 Note, NIV version, page 2240. 
  39. The Hebrew word for "peace" is shalom and the Greek word is eirene.  It carries the idea of completeness or wholeness.  When Jesus told the woman, "Go in peace," he was making a statement about her whole being.  The word peace also refers to the absence of strife. Christians experience peace with God.  There is no longer any hostilities between God and human beings.  Christ's mission was to bring spiritual peace with God (Isa. 9:6; Luke 1:79; 2:14; John 14:27)  When we think of peace, we generally think of a feeling.  We may struggle with a hard decision.  When we finally make a decision, we say that we have "peace" about it.  We are referring to a lack of internal conflict.  While peace is experienced as a feeling, it is more than this.  Peace is a state of affairs or a reality, no matter how we feel about it.  It is a reality even when we are still fighting.  While there are still battles to be fought (between sin and that which is holy), the peace has been won.  We are assured of our salvation in Christ and this is the greatest assurance of peace that can be given.  - From the Holman New Testament Commentary "Mark" by Max Anders and Rodney L. Cooper, Deeper Discoveries, B. Peace (Mark 5:34), page 92-93.
  40. “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you” (Ph. 4:8-9).
  41. The world desperately needs a Savior, someone who can bring peace and economic security to the world. Consider the hostility, conflict, pain, suffering, and all the other ills rampant in the world. Throughout history people have looked for a savior among their leaders, but they have always been sadly disappointed. No human being can bring true peace and prosperity to the world, for we are all unable to see into the future or control it, no matter how hard we try. Moreover, we are mortal and have only a few short years on earth. A savior who can bring lasting peace and economic security simply cannot be found among humankind. He must come from God.
    This is the glorious gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. God has demonstrated His grace to the world by sending His Son to bring peace to earth. Because of Him, there can be peace among people, peace between…
    • husband and wife
    • neighbors
    • employers and employees
    • church members
    • races
    • social classes
    • nations and governments
    Jesus Christ alone can bring peace and economic security to this world. He promises to richly bless all who trust in Him and to provide for all the necessities of life. In addition, He promises us full, purposeful, and victorious lives. He alone is the promised Messiah, the Savior of the world. Listen to what God’s Holy Word says:

    “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Mt. 6:33).
    “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” (Jn. 14:27).
    “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (Jn. 16:33).
    “The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:)” (Ac. 10:36).
    “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Ro. 5:1).
    “For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost” (Ro. 14:17).
    “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law” (Ga. 5:22-23).
    “For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us” (Ep. 2:14).
    “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Ph. 4:6-7).

  42. “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest,” Jesus said — or, as another translation has it, “and I will refresh you.” - From location 5575 in the Kindle Book "Prayer" by Philip Yancey.
  43. “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you,” Jesus told his disciples. Any doctor will agree that the absence of peace, in the form of stress, fear, tension, or worry, endangers physical health as much as a disease microbe. - From location 5586 in the Kindle Book "Prayer" by Philip Yancey.
  44. “And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” - From location 5985 in the Kindle Book "Prayer" by Philip Yancey.
  45. Paul’s description of a peace that transcends all understanding echoes Jesus, who said, “My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives.”- From location 5990 in the Kindle Book "Prayer" by Philip Yancey.
  46. You will never know the peace with God, peace of conscience, peace of miind, and peace of soul until you stand at the foot of the cross and identify yourself with Christ by faith...this is peace with God.  - From page 78 of "Billy Graham in Quotes.”
  47. John 14:27 - “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”. It was announced of Christ at his birth that he had come to bring peace—“peace on earth, good will toward men.” This he did, and he left it behind at his departure. - From commentary on John 16:31-33 from the Boice Expositional Commentary Series (27 Volumes) by James Montgomery Boice.
  48. Isaiah 26:3-4: You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock.  God gives His people perfect peace. But perfect peace is given only to the person whose mind or thoughts are fixed on Him (v. 3). The word peace (shalom) means to be in harmony with God, experiencing peace with God and the peace of God. It means to be in such harmony with God that one is assured of having all needs met. Peace gives a person the assurance of health, wholeness, the absence of conflict and strife within and without his soul. Peace is the assurance of deliverance through hardship, accident, disease, and calamity. The peace given by God is a quiet, restful soul; a sense of purpose, contentment, fulfillment and completion. God’s peace is the assurance of present and future security, deliverance and success. God’s peace delivers a person through all the conflicts, strife, divisions, trials, and temptations of this life.
    However, note this important fact: the person who has such peace is the person whose mind or thoughts stay fixed on the Lord.  - From the reading about Isaiah 26:3-4 in the Preacher’s Outline and Sermon Bible Old and New Testament Commentary Set (44-Volumes) - by Alpha-Omega Ministries, Publisher: Leadership Ministries Worldwide
  49. God promises to flood the hearts of His people with peace as they walk through life.
    “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” (Jn. 14:27).
    “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (Jn. 16:33).
    “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Ph. 4:6-7).
    “Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them” (Ps. 119:165).
    “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee” (Is. 26:3).
    “O that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments! then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea” (Is. 48:18).

  50. Streams of water will flow from every high mountain and hill on the earth. The term streams of water is a picture of peace and rest—being free from all pressure, distress, grief, oppression, lawlessness, violence, and wicked behavior. It is a picture of paradise, where only peace and tranquility will be experienced. Yet even in this present evil world where believers must walk through the trials and temptations of this life, the Lord promises us the wonderful gift of His peace.
    “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you” (Jn. 14:26).
    “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (Jn. 16:33).
    “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Ph. 4:6-7).

    “Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them” (Ps. 119:165).
    “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength” (Is. 26:3-4).

  51. In His kingdom, officers will no longer plot to attack the towers of the city or estimate how much wealth they can plunder after they conquer it. No longer will foreign invaders speak in a strange, unknown language. The Lord will remove all evil oppressors from the earth, and there will finally be universal peace.
    He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire” (Ps. 46:9).
    “And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more” (Is. 2:4).
