There Will Be A Time The World Lives In Peace

For years the world has yearned for peace, yet it has always been fleeting.  The League of Nations failed and the United Nations has done little better.  The United Nations has a Security Council, a Peace Building Commission, a Disarmament Commission, a Counter-Terrorism Implementation Task Force, a Human Rights Commission and others.  Yet, there are wars and rumors of wars continually.  There is corruption in almost every form of government.  Everyone wants peace and true justice and fail to find it. 

In the 10th chapter of Genesis it tells of a person named Nimrod.  It is believed that he was the founder of a great, evil Babylonian empire.  Genesis 11:1 – “Now the whole world had one language and a common speech.”  It had a one-world government.  They built a 300 foot structure, possibly a pyramid with steps going up the side.  Their plan was to build a tower that reached to the heavens.  Genesis 11:5 – 7 – “But the LORD came down to see the city and the tower the people were building.  The LORD said, ‘If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them.  Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.’”  So God scattered the people throughout the world and they began speaking different languages.  It doesn’t seem to be God’s plan for a one-world-government. 

We now have many American progressives, socialists, communists and Muslims desiring to form a one-world government.  Who do you think was behind Nimrod’s evil one-world government and those planning a one-world government today?  You win if you said Satan.  What was God’s reaction to the evil Babylonian empire?  He didn’t allow it.  However, the situation may be different this time as we read what happens in the end-times from Revelation and the actual forming of a one-world-government. 

There are a number of leaders in most every nation who believe that a one-world government would be the only way the world could have total peace.  They never seem to be able to provide an answer to what would the consequences be?  What kind of laws would we have?  Who would enforce them?  What kind of justice would corrupt leaders provide?  What people dream and hope for seldom comes to fruition.  Notice each form of government has failed to provide the assurance of peace. 

As long as there is evil in the world and man’s carnal nature is out-of-control, there is little chance for lasting peace.  However, there will be a time:

Isaiah 11:4 – 10 – “He will give justice to the poor and make fair decisions for the exploited.  The earth will shake at the force of his word, and one breath from his mouth will destroy the wicked.   He will wear righteousness like a belt and truth like an undergarment.  In that day the wolf and the lamb will live together; the leopard will lie down with the baby goat.  The calf and the yearling will be safe with the lion, and a little child will lead them all.  The cow will graze near the bear.  The cub and the calf will lie down together.  The lion will eat hay like a cow.  The baby will play safely near the hole of a cobra.
Yes, a little child will put its hand in a nest of deadly snakes without harm.  Nothing will hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain, for as the waters fill the sea, so the earth will be filled with people who know the Lord.  In that day the heir to David’s throne will be a banner of salvation to all the world.  The nations will rally to him, and the land where he lives will be a glorious place.” NLT

God promised that the Messiah, a descendant of King David, would rule forever.  He will be the only one that will reign and provide honest treatment for everyone. Who else will know the thoughts of each individual?  During Christ’s rule the world will have universal peace.  Everyone will have knowledge of the Lord and know His ways.  God will write the laws in the hearts of every person.  He will be our God and we will be His people.  This peace will not only be extended to humans but to ferocious beasts who will be as tame as a kitten.  This will only happen after all unbelievers will be removed from His leadership.    

Isaiah 40:10 & 11 – “Yes, the Sovereign Lord is coming in power.   He will rule with a powerful arm.   See, he brings his reward with him as he comes.  He will feed his flock like a shepherd.  He will carry the lambs in his arms, holding them close to his heart.   He will gently lead the mother sheep with their young.” 

God will provide a safety net for the least able members of society.  He will be protective yet gentle in watching over all people.  We will not need a government to take care of us we will be dependent upon God.  God says He takes a hold of our right hand so we will not fear.  Do you feel His grip?  Do you sense His help?  If not you may need to look at the three things.  Do we have confidence that God will keep His promises?  Will we feel accepted by Him?  We will unquestionably be able to know God’s plan for each of us.  Do we believe He will want us to do well and be achievers every minute of each day? If then, why not now?
