Prince of Peace

“These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

Peace? How can we have peace today in a world full of evil and chaos? We as Christians can have Peace and Joy, because of Jesus Christ. To the people of the world living for the flesh, this doesn’t make any sense. How can we have internal Peace through One Man? Because Jesus wasn’t just a Man, he is God in the Flesh (John 1:14) who took the wages of Sin upon himself at the Cross so we may have eternal life

This means whatever your going through today, whatever suffering you may be enduring, there is always a light at the end of the tunnel through Christ. Your best days have yet to be seen until Christ returns and restores Gods Kingdom. This present suffering is a mere stumbling block and not our destiny

Therefore you too have grief now; but I will see you again, and your heart will rejoice, and no one will take your joy away from you. John 16:22

Jesus told his disciples, they will receive Joy because of him, that nobody can take away from us. You see they can take away our Earthly possessions, maybe our health will diminish, maybe we’ll even lose our life for Christ sake, but it doesn’t matter because our soul belongs to The Lord!

Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Matthew 10:28

Nobody can take your soul except God alone! Therefor don’t fear the evils of this world, have Peace and Joy knowing your soul belongs to Jesus Christ Amen!

    Good morning, “Unashamed of Jesus”. I wholeheartedly agree with your comments. So many people believe that their lives are ‘tolerable’ and live each day by rote never experiencing ‘a better way’. Also known as The Way! I so needed a blessing from Him that like Jacob (I did not actually wrestle with an Angel, but) I asked Him to bless me by changing my name like He did so many of the Bible characters. And guess what…HE DID! Be blessed and have a marvelous day in Him. Check out my latest blog post.
