"Why do the nations rage... and take counsel together against the Lord and His Anointed " Ps 2: 1, 2 (NKJV).
"For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape." 1 Thess. 5:3
The world today grapples with the challenge of establishing a place where there is lasting peace and safety (PS). But notwithstanding our best efforts, reaching such a place continues to elude us.
Here’s a thesis why:
(United Nations + Geneva Convention + G8 + G20 + other special interest groups) - Jesus = Destruction
Jesus + United Nations + Geneva Convention + G8 + G20 + other special interest groups = Peace and Safety
Jesus - (United Nations + Geneva Convention + G8 + G20 + other special interest groups) = Peace and Safety
The PS factor is JESUS.
He says, "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." John 14:27.
We can therefore safely conclude, "He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life." 1 John 5:12
Father in Heaven, thank You for Your Son Jesus Christ, our sacrificial Lamb, our ascended Mediator, and our soon coming King who shall reign over all the earth. We acknowledge His sovereignty today, and bless His holy name, in His name, amen.
