Your Sunday Bread: No Peace but a Sword

TheWriteAmerica-Patriot-Devotional-Image-5_27_14 Today’s discussion is Peace, and we have heard scripture which enlightens us to seek peace. However, scriptures also give us an image of peace that does not come from the worldview of peace.

For example, when someone is fighting it requires a treaty of peace between the parties to become ‘peaceful’ again. However, for many, especially when we view how America got its start and to break away for Britain the citizens became rebellious, that is to say, the citizens of America no longer stood with or for what their forefathers represented.

In biblical view Yahusha is quoted as saying, “I come not for peace [or prosperity] but with a sword” which is direct, and great contrast to what we have been given that peace is among us.

He added, “I come to turn [or rather persuade] a mother against daughter, and a father against son, and a daughter n law against a mother n law [and] a man’s enemies will be the members of his household”. So then, in this instance, we get not peace but war for what is right.

Can anyone hear? That its not all smooth sailing in this, that there are going to be some changes made and it starts at home. Living set apart is rebellion against the normal of world view.

Today:

Seek peace and pursue it means peace in set apart living. Come back to Torah, but be warned that in doing so destroys what we believe peace to be.

For your hearing:

Matthew 10: 34
