LET GOD BE YOUR ARCHITECT

One major advantage that we have with God as our advocate, overseer, leader and anchor in life, is that God already knows the future. In Isaiah 48:3, God provided us with His promise, saying, “I have declared the former things from the beginning; They went forth from My mouth, and I caused them to hear it. Suddenly I did them, and they came to pass.” It is clear that God proclaims the things that are going to happen ahead of time, and at the appointed time, known to God, the prophecies of God are always fulfilled. Therefore, it is to our benefit to always let God be the one to lead and guide us through life.

Without a doubt, we know that God loves all the people of the world, and God wants to save all the people that will heed to His call for salvation (John 3:16-17). And, God has already shown us His covenant and His laws with the Ten Commandments (Deuteronomy 4:13). Furthermore, the Lord Jesus Christ came down to Earth, and practically showed us God’s love for us, and declared God’s promise for the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:4-8). And, this promise spoken by the Lord Jesus Christ was fulfilled on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2:1-4). Therefore, it is undeniably clear that, as God had promised, He also fulfilled His promise.

In His lovingkindness and mercy, God has shown us the way to reach Him, Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life (John 14:6). Meaning that, in order to take the correct path to reach God, we should always follow the Lord Jesus Christ. And, God has promised all of us who believe in Him, in Isaiah 46:4, “Even to your old age, I am He, And even to gray hairs I will carry you! I have made, and I will bear; Even I will carry, and will deliver you.” Therefore, God has promised to be there for you, if you will trust in Him. God is available to be there for you through all the stages of life, and through all the various types of moments in your life.

In addition, God will not forget you, as He has promised in Isaiah 49:15, saying, “Can a woman forget her nursing child, And not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, Yet I will not forget you.” Indeed, God will not forget you, God will be there for you, and God will rejoice with you. God has great plans for you. God has promised in Jeremiah 29:11-13, saying, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.” So, God is there for you to bless you, and to bring to pass good and great plans for your life.

Therefore, by the grace of God, if you are not yet saved, or you do not yet have a relationship with God, you can make the choice today to trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. Click here to learn how to become saved, or how to start a relationship with God. Receive the salvation of God today, and become a member of God’s family! Make the choice to live a fulfilled life with God! Let God be Architect, to show you His great plans for you, and to help lead and guide you to your destiny. Be saved by God and be blessed always. Live your best life with God, and live inspired!

THE SENSE OF ACCOMPLISHMENT

The Sense of Accomplishment

As one of the gifts from God, the sense of accomplishment is the experience and awareness of joy that is acquired from completing a desired task, goal, or milestone. It is a sense of fulfillment, and it is the heritage of the person’s completed work.

As a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, there is definitely a great joy in knowing the completed work that the Lord Jesus Christ has already done for all of us! In general, all believers can certainly thank the Lord Jesus Christ for going through with all the sufferings of the cross and bearing all the sins of the world on the cross in order to save us! However, on a more personal level, it is also good to know the grace of God that allows each of us to experience this sense of accomplishment also, when we have completed good work.

Therefore, it is very important to note that, the sense of fulfillment or accomplishment from a completed work is good, and it is a gift from God, as well as, a blessing from God. The bible tells us in Proverbs 31:30-31, “Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands, And let her own works praise her in the gates.” So, what a blessing to revere and reverence God, and what a blessing to do good work! And, did you also notice from this bible verse that, even the completed work can generate praise? It is quite encouraging and very rewarding to know the unlimited possibility that God opens up to all people through His grace, when we make the choice to work with God!

God gives everyone who is alive, the opportunity to experience the sense of accomplishment through the completion of the tasks, goals, or milestones, and the purpose given to them by God. In the bible, Apostle Paul wrote in 2 Timothy 4:7-8, saying, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.” Amen! Praise God!

By the grace of God, everyone is invited to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and to become saved and sanctified! God gives everyone the chance to work with Him. Once you have been saved by the Lord Jesus Christ, you will have the right relationship with God to know your God given purpose and tasks. Of course, it is by choice whether a person wishes to serve God or not. Nonetheless, the clear truth is that, true fulfillment in life comes from God.

Therefore, by the grace of God, if you are not yet saved, or you do not yet have a relationship with God, you can make the choice today to trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. Click here to learn how to become saved, or how to start a relationship with God. Receive the salvation of God today, and become a member of God’s family! Make the choice to live a fulfilled life with God. Be saved by God and be blessed always. Live your best life with God, and live inspired!

SUCCESSFULLY OVERCOME ADVERSITY BY EXERCISING YOUR FAITH IN GOD

Successfully Overcome Adversity By Exercising Your Faith in God

Generally, people or human beings do not like adversity in their lives, at all. And technically, in truth, it can be practically said that, “Nobody likes adversity.” But, on the other hand, although people do not like adversity, God usually has good reasons or purposes, when and why it is valid and necessary to sometimes allow adversity.

Based on the bible, sometimes God allows adversity because the people or person was disobedient or stubborn (see Genesis 3 and Deuteronomy 29:14-29), or sometimes God allows adversity because God is giving the people or person the opportunity to exercise their faith in Him. For example, in the case of Queen Esther (see Esther 3-9), and in the case of Job (see Job 1-42). Either way, when God allows adversity, it is usually for a good reason and for a valid purpose. And, there is hope and comfort in having this understanding.

Therefore, it is valuable to consider this question, “How can anyone successfully overcome adversity in their life?” The short answer is, “By exercising their faith in God.” Of course, the other option is to try to overcome adversity all by one’s self (that is, to try to overcome adversity without God’s help), but this is not a valid option. Jesus already said, “Without me, you can do nothing,” (see John 15:5). Hence, the option or choice to try to overcome adversity all by oneself, without God’s help, can be dangerous and destructive. In fact, it can eventually send a person’s soul to hell, if it is not repented of, because, it is the equivalent of trying to live life separate from God, who is the source of life. But, thank God that He is merciful, kind and forgiving. Nonetheless, God is always just, and we should not take God’s kindness for granted. God’s mercy is not a license to sin, but to live in faith and in righteousness.

By considering another case in the bible, it is clear that in righteousness, faithfulness, and kindness, God judged and redeemed King David out of all his adversities (see 2 Samuel 4:9, 2 Samuel 12:11, and in overall, 2 Samuel 12:1-25). And, in some cases, God sometimes allows adversity for a nation or a city (see 2 Chronicles 15:6 and in overall, 2 Chronicles 15). Regardless of the level of involvement, the key point is that, when it comes to overcoming adversity, it is important to trust in God and to exercise faith in God. By trusting in God, it will allow the connection and the relationship to work with God, and by exercising faith in God, it will allow actions to be taken to overcome the adversity. The goal is to successfully overcome the adversity, and to take the opportunity to continue to grow to become better.

In the bible, the case with King David is also a good example of a person trusting in God during a time of adversity, while also believing in God for deliverance. In Psalm 31:1, King David wrote, “In You, O Lord, I put my trust; Let me never be ashamed; Deliver me in Your righteousness.” And in addition, based on the life story of King David, clearly with God’s help, he was able to overcome all his adversities, as well as, achieving some really great accomplishments in his life for God’s glory. The case with Job is also another good example of how God preserved a person during adversity, and later restored and blessed him more than he had ever been before. Similarly, Queen Esther is another good example of how God strengthened a person during adversity, and her courage grew tremendously in the process. And, in addition, Queen Esther was greatly blessed.

Other relevant bible passages to keep in mind about adversity include, Proverbs 17:17, Proverbs 24:10, and Ecclesiastes 7:14. In addition, it is important to note that God can provide teachers and guidance to help you while you are experiencing adversity (see Isaiah 30:20-21). Also, it is important to note that, God can turn your enemy to become supportive of you during your time of adversity (see Jeremiah 15:11).

Likewise, it is significant and essential to note that, based on God’s standard, adversity will at some point, and eventually, come to all people, but, life is always a precious gift (see Jeremiah 45:4-5). And, there is great hope when we live our lives with God, keep in mind, Psalm 34:19, “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the Lord delivers him out of them all.” Meaning, God can deliver you from all your adversities too, if you trust in God and you exercise your faith in God. And, in addition, God can provide a shield of protection for you, if you trust in Him (See Psalm 18:30).

Therefore, by the grace of God, if you are not yet saved, or you do not yet have a relationship with God, make the choice today to trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. Click here to learn how to become saved or how to start a relationship with God. Receive the Salvation of God today and become a member of God’s family. Be saved by God and be blessed always. Live your best life with God, and live inspired.

THE WONDERFUL AND AMAZING LOVE OF GOD!

The Amazing Love of God

God created us human beings because of love and relationship. God created us so that He can love us and we can love Him, and so that we can fellowship and relate with Him and among ourselves. One of the greatest privileges that we have and enjoy as human beings is that we were created in God’s image (See Genesis 1:27). It is a wonderful honor that God has bestowed upon all human beings, both male and female human beings, keep in mind Genesis 1:27.

God sets His love upon those whom He has chosen and He is always faithful to keep His promises (See Deuteronomy 7:7-9). Because of love, God turned every curse that was pronounced against His people into a blessing (See Deuteronomy 23:5). Because of love, God blessed and prepared Solomon to become the King of Israel (2 Chronicles 1:7-13 and 2:11). God is righteous and God loves righteousness (See Psalm 11:7). God loves righteousness and God loves justice (See Psalm 33:5). Because of love, God preserves His saints forever (See Psalm 37:28). And, God loves the righteous (Psalm 146:8). As a father corrects his son whom he loves, in the same manner, God chastens and corrects those whom He loves (See Proverbs 3:12 and Hebrews 12:6). And, God loves those who follow righteousness (See Proverbs 15:9).

God loves all people and is offering salvation to all people through the Lord Jesus Christ (See John 3:16). When you believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, you have believed in the One True God (See John 12:44). This truth is very crucial and important to note (See John 12:44-50). In John 12:44-50, Jesus said, “He who believes in Me, believes not in Me but in Him who sent Me. And he who sees Me sees Him who sent Me. I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness. And if anyone hears My words and does not believe, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world. He who rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which judges him—the word that I have spoken will judge him in the last day. For I have not spoken on My own authority; but the Father who sent Me gave Me a command, what I should say and what I should speak. And I know that His command is everlasting life. Therefore, whatever I speak, just as the Father has told Me, so I speak.” Amen! Glory to God!

Therefore, without a doubt, we are firmly and confidently assured that God loves us and God sent the Lord Jesus Christ, the One True Messiah into the world to save the world. By the grace of God, if you are not yet saved, make the choice today to trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. Click here to learn how to become saved and how to become a Son or Daughter of God. Receive the Love and Salvation of God today and become a member of God’s family. Be blessed always. Live your best life with God, and live inspired!

THE RESURRECTION AND RAPTURE OF THE PEOPLE OF GOD

The Resurrection and Rapture of the People of God

There are various examples and instances of resurrections and raptures described in the bible. In terms of the rapture or the transport of the people of God to Heaven, Enoch is the first recorded human person taken alive to Heaven. In Genesis 5:23-24, it is recorded, “So all the days of Enoch were three hundred and sixty-five years. And Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him.” This is further confirmed in the book of Hebrews 11:5, “By faith Enoch was taken away so that he did not see death, “and was not found, because God had taken him”; for before he was taken he had this testimony, that he pleased God.” And, the second human person to experience rapture to Heaven is the Prophet Elijah. We find this in the passage recorded in 2 Kings 2:1, “And it came to pass, when the Lord was about to take up Elijah into heaven by a whirlwind, that Elijah went with Elisha from Gilgal.”

Another important phenomenon to consider is that of the resurrection. However, there is also yet another profound phenomenon involving the transfiguration described in the bible. In Matthew 17:1-3, we are told, “Now after six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, led them up on a high mountain by themselves; and He was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as the light. And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him.” Our God is So Awesome! This was an amazing occurrence because we find that the disciples of Jesus who were at the time, ‘ordinary human beings or persons’ were in fact able to witness Jesus communicating directly with Moses and Elijah, and not only that, they also heard the voice of God the Father as you read further in the passage in Matthew 17:5. And in addition, there are still so much to capture and understand from the whole passage involving Matthew 17:1-13. The bright shining truth was confirmed by our Lord and Savior that in fact, our Lord Jesus was able to communicate with Moses and Elijah. So clearly, various occurrences of raptures and resurrections have been confirmed in the bible.

Furthermore, some well known examples of resurrections in the bible involve the cases of our Lord Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead in John 11, raising a young man back to life in Luke 7:11-17, and raising the little girl back to life in Mark 5:41 and Luke 8:54. And, our Lord Jesus Himself rose from the dead to live forever as recorded in Matthew 28, Mark 16, Luke 24, and John 20. In addition, the bible also tells us what happened after Jesus resurrected in Matthew 27:51-53, “Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split, and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised;and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many.” And as we study the bible further, both in the Old and New Testaments, there are various resurrections and raptures promised to occur as described in the books of Daniel, Malachi, 1st & 2nd Thessalonians, and Revelation.

In overall, it is very important to have faith in God and to live a life that is focused on loving and serving God. The word of God is eternal and God is always faithful to fulfill all His promises. The corporate resurrection and rapture of God’s people or the church of God is drawing closer and closer everyday. By the grace of God, it is good to be prepared and ready. You can click here to learn how to become born again or how to become a Child of God. Receive the Salvation of God and be ready for the resurrection and rapture of God’s people. Be blessed always. Live your best life with God, and live inspired.

THE CHILDREN OF GOD

King Jesus in the Holy City with the Saints of God - Children of God

The children of God are those people who are called by God. The children of God are those people who have been born of God and according to the will of God. The children of God are the children of promise. The calling to become a child of God is open to everyone who will believe in God and in the Lord Jesus Christ. As it is written and explained in John 1:11-13, “He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.”

It is important to note that the children of God will be brought together in unity from all the Nations that God called them from. Apostle John also noted and explained in John 11:49-52, saying,“And one of them, Caiaphas, being high priest that year, said to them, “You know nothing at all, nor do you consider that it is expedient for us that one man should die for the people, and not that the whole nation should perish.” Now this he did not say on his own authority; but being high priest that year he prophesied that Jesus would die for the nation, and not for that nation only, but also that He would gather together in one the children of God who were scattered abroad.”

God the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit are united in calling and making the children of God. As it is written in Acts 2:38-39, “Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.”” Also in Romans 8:16-17, it is written and confirmed that, “The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.”

The trials, tribulations, and sufferings of this world are not to be compared with the glory that God has awaiting for His children. As explained by Apostle Paul in Romans 8:18-21, saying, “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.”

There is a significant difference between the children of God and the children of the world. As it is written and explained in Romans 9:8, “That is, those who are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God; but the children of the promise are counted as the seed.” The right to become a child of God is not based on being born in any particular country, but in being called by God and in being born of God. Also, this message is further explained and reconfirmed in Romans 9:25-26, “As He says also in Hosea: “I will call them My people, who were not My people, And her beloved, who was not beloved.” “And it shall come to pass in the place where it was said to them, ‘You are not My people,’ There they shall be called sons of the living God.”” Also in 1 John 3:10, it is further explained, “In this the children of God and the children of the devil are manifest: Whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is he who does not love his brother.” Also in 1 John 5:2, “By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments.”

As a child of God, you should imitate God by walking in love. “Therefore be imitators of God as dear children,” (Ephesians 5:1). And, in addition, Apostle Paul provided further admonition, saying, “Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain,” (Philippians 2:14-16).

It is such a great privilege to become a child of God. As it is written in 1 John 3:1,“Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.”Also in 1 John 3:2, it is further explained, “Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.”

As a child of God, you are an overcomer in Jesus Christ. “You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world,” (1 John 4:4). Also in 1 John 2:28, apostle John also noted the importance of abiding in Jesus, saying, “And now, little children, abide in Him, that when He appears, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming.”

In summary, Apostle Peter explained the glorious heritage of the children of God in 1 Peter 2:9, saying, “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.” It is such a wonderful privilege, an amazing miracle, and a tremendous blessing to become a Child of God!

Live your best life with God, and live inspired!

GOD THE FATHER, JEHOVAH

God the Father, Jehovah

God the Father is greater than all and excellent in glory. Jesus spoke in John 10:29-30, concerning His Father and His true followers, saying, “My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. I and My Father are one.”

God the Father is so loving, so good, and so kind to all people. Jesus told us in John 3:16-17, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” In Matthew 5:44-45, Jesus taught His disciples, saying, “But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.” Also in Psalm 145:9, King David wrote about God the Father, saying,“The LORD is good to all, And His tender mercies are over all His works.”

God the Father is Creator, King, Emperor and Ruler of the Universe. In Hebrews 11:3, Apostle Paul wrote, saying, “By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.” In Deuteronomy 10:17, Moses wrote, saying, “For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality nor takes a bribe.”

God the Father is the Living God. All the righteous and saved people live to God. In Matthew 22:31-32, Jesus answered the Sadducees about the resurrection saying, “But concerning the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what was spoken to you by God, saying,‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.” (Also see Mark 12:26-27). And, Jesus also confirmed in Luke 20:38, saying, “For He is not the God of the dead but of the living, for all live to Him.” Also in 2 Corinthians 5:7-9, Apostle Paul wrote about the same subject of the righteous people living to God, saying, “For we walk by faith, not by sight. We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord. Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or absent, to be well pleasing to Him.”

Jesus teaches all people to have faith in God. In Mark 11:22, Jesus taught His disciples, saying, “Have faith in God.” If you are not yet saved by God, you can repent and be baptized.

THE PERSON OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

A Sample Picture of the Person of the Holy Spirit - M

The Holy Spirit is God. He is the third person of the divine trinity and of the God-Head involving, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is a Person and He is God. Jesus told us about the Holy Spirit in John 14:26, saying, “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.”Therefore from this bible verse we can understand that the Holy Spirit teaches believers about the things of God and He helps us to remember what Jesus has said to us.

Jesus also told us about the Holy Spirit in Acts 1:8, saying,But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” And,it is also important to note that the Holy Spirit comforts believers of Jesus Christ. In Acts 9:31, it is noted that, “Then the churches throughout all Judea, Galilee, and Samaria had peace and were edified. And walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, they were multiplied.”

There is power and authority in the name of the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit. In Matthew 28:18-20, Jesus commanded us saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

As a believer in Jesus Christ, it is very important to be baptized and to receive the Holy Spirit. In John 3:5-8, Jesus answered Nicodemus saying, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

If you are not yet saved by Jesus Christ, you can repent and be baptized. And you can pray to God and receive the Holy Spirit. In Acts 2:38 the Apostle Peter preached saying, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” Amen. You can click here to learn how to become born again. Receive the Holy Spirit. Be blessed always. Live your best life with God, and live inspired.

JESUS, THE PRINCE OF PEACE

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.
