Have you ever noticed how entertainers, actors, academia, college students, tree-huggers, nature lovers and many more preach adamantly about peace? I want to explain to you why they are talking about a subject, that they virtually know nothing about. #1 How can good triumph over evil without war? Do you really believe that evil will simply see the light and lay down their hatred along with their weapons? Really? It is ludicrous and naive to think so. Evil is neither complacent nor docile. Evil is an imposer. It aggressively and gleefully imposes itself on the weak and innocent. Evil understands nothing except brute force. Evil refuses to submit without extreme aggression. This is a fact of life that has always been there, and it always will be there in the world in which we now live. #2 The source of conflict is not comprehended by the peaceniks. There is a war going on in the heavenlies and it is played out in the earthly realm. You cannot solve a problem with band-aid therapy; you must go to the root of the problem if you are going to stand any chance at all of resolving it. Eons ago Almighty God created the mighty angels. He also created a being named Lucifer. Lucifer was created perfect and good, as is everything the Almighty creates, but the Almighty also gave Lucifer the power of choice. At some point Lucifer chose to rebel against the Great Creator and convinced one third of the angelic host to follow him in this conspiracy. There was war in the heavens and Lucifer was defeated. He was cast down to the earth for an appointed time. Later, the Almighty created mankind and put them in the Garden of Eden, knowing full well that Lucifer/Satan would tempt them to also rebel against Almighty God. Adam and Eve foolishly gave ear to Satan’s deceit and sinned against the Almighty. The result of their sin was this: Adam and Eve died spiritually speaking. They did not die physically that day, although they were cursed with the concept of physical death in their future; however, a fallen nature (sin nature) came upon them and their descendants from that day and forward. This is that root problem of which I spoke earlier. The root of ALL conflict in our world is mankind’s struggle between following the voice of his fallen-nature and Satan, O – – – R, following the voice of Almighty God. Contrary to what so many false teachers are saying out there, man is not inherently good. Man is inherently evil. This does not mean that man never does anything right, but it does mean that he is ridiculously inclined to do what is wrong. There is only one true, genuine, enduring, unfailing, overcoming, satisfying, chain smashing, captive delivering peace and it comes through knowing Christ Yahshua Jesus. All other attempts at peace, whether well-intentioned or not, are bogus and doomed to failure. The real conflict is between Almighty God the lover of your soul, and Satan the hater of everything good. #3 Many millions foolishly dismiss the validity of the Holy Bible and turn to their own puny logic to save themselves. Mere mortals are not capable of giving themselves eternal life and it is pure folly to think so. Every one dies and every one will face the Almighty on the judgement day. If you refuse to accept Yahshua Jesus as Savior and Lord, then you my friend are willfully engaging in the largest conflict you could possibly imagine. Many of the peaceniks act so pious and above the fray; but in reality, they are the most adamant warmongers to be found. They say, “Peace, peace”, while raising a mighty sword in opposition to the One who made them. They speak of tolerance, while demanding that you leave your principles behind. I am not fooled by their double-speak, and I encourage you to open your eyes to their sweet-sounding, unbending hatred for the Great Creator. Their peace is a seductive peace that leads to destruction. Peace, peace: yeah right! Their peace is conceived in deceit and rebellion, but outwardly they appear to be such fine examples. How very sad! (Romans 3:17 The way of peace have they not known.) The world is full of people clamoring for peace, while leaving out the main ingredient, the Prince of Peace Yahshua Jesus, who would gladly forgive them and set them free.
