The headline “World Peace” continues to be pronounced as an end goal of many among us. But, is there ever going to be peace on this earth?
When Jesus was here he said: “Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division. For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law” (Luke 12:51).
Therefore, do not be deceived by pronouncements of world peace because the prince of this world, the devil, aka Satan knows he has a “…short time…” (Revelation 12:12); and he is using every possible means to deceive the whole world into thinking that one day there is going to have peace here on earth (Revelation 13:14).
“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 Thessalonians 5:3).
“For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man” (Luke 21:35-36).
