Prince of Peace (1)

Jesus is so wonderful that there are so many ways, words and aspects to praise and describe Him and yet, we could go on forever still having many more ways, words and aspects to praise and describe Him. But for the purpose of this article, we will focus on these three key aspects of Him; Jesus, the Son of God, Our Wonderful Savior, and the Prince of Peace.

In prophesying about the birth of Jesus, the Prophet Isaiah wrote telling us, “For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6) And, so we know that Jesus did come as a Child into this earth, and that Jesus came as a Son, and that Jesus is a King with His government. And, very importantly, we can identify that Jesus is God, the Mighty God. We can also identify that Jesus is Wonderful, the Greatest Counselor, Everlasting Father, and the Prince of Peace.

Yes, Jesus is the Prince of Peace and Jesus is God. So Jesus is the maker and provider of calmness, quietness, harmony, serenity and unity. Jesus provides the sweet rest that is an inherent longing of many souls. Jesus provides the blessed peace of mind that comes with healing to the soul. It is the kind of peace that allows the soul to be full and whole, to be at rest and to be connected with the presence of God. It is important to note that the peace that Jesus provides is limitless. In continuing the prophecy about Jesus, the Prophet Isaiah wrote telling us, “Of the increase of His government and peace There will be no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgment and justice From that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.” (Isaiah 9:7) So we know that there are no limits to how much peace Jesus can supply to His people and within His kingdom.

Therefore, a very important distinction to draw is that the Kingdom of God is different from the Kingdom of this World. While Jesus walked on this earth, Jesus warned us believers and told us in John 14:27, “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” Jesus also told us in John 16:33, “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” So while in the world, the experience is definitely different and distinctively different from experiencing the peace of God, from the Kingdom of God and the peace that comes from Jesus.

Nevertheless, the wonderful news of the gospel of Jesus Christ is that everyone in the world can experience the peace of God if they are willing to repent and to return to God. See, Jesus paid the price for our peace and therefore Jesus can provide us with His limitless supply of the peace of God. The scripture tells in Isaiah 53:5, “But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.” So if you have not yet experienced the peace of God in your life, then you should really think about this very important matter of eternal life and the wellbeing of your soul, and you should make the right choice to seek God for salvation and to receive Jesus into your life. It is called being born again into the family of God. You can click here to learn how to become born again. Yes, make the right choice to live your life with the peace of God from Jesus, the Prince of Peace. Be blessed always. Live your best life with God, and live inspired.
