The world today is in a state of unrest and its people are constantly seeking peace, Real True Peace, but instead of seeking the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ, who is the Only One who can give such Peace, they seem to look at the transient things of this world, such as relationships, prosperity, money, fame, etc, for their personal satisfaction and inner peace.
We must be aware and beware because the Bible warns us that in the end times, people will seek peace from an external source and find it in the antichrist, who will infact craft policies of prosperity and peace to deceive and destroy many (Daniel 8:25). The Bible establishes that only in Jesus Christ, can a person have Real True Peace (John 16:33; Acts 16:36). Real True Peace comes when Jesus Christ is in us. Jesus said, “Behold, I am standing at the door and knocking. If anyone hears my voice, let him open the door and I will come in (Revelation 3:20)”. Psalm 122:8 states, “I will now say, Peace be within you.” Real True Peace comes from within and not from any external source.
Points to ponder:
Do you have Real True Peace? In other words, Real True Peace is possible only when Jesus comes into our lives; it is from within and we ought not to look externally!
Revelation 3:20 (KJV)
20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
Psalm 122:8 (KJV)
8 For my brethren and companions’ sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee.
John 16:33 (KJV)
33 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.
