Today, peace is described as a result of divine operations that must occur within the living, and unfold like the gradual growth of a seed.  For mature Christian believers, peace is an inner condition as well as the social framework and lifestyle vital to relationships between and among nations seeking exchange, prosperity, and mutual support.  For modern nations, the peace process consists in such features as adjudication, conferences, diplomacy, negotiations, and talks.  Peace will result as the outcome of complete agreement, or consensus (i.e., accord achieved through acceptance, compromise, and consent).  Many heads of state and global councils adopt a “hard line” posture and refuse peace through consensus.  They prefer to pursue a war that may only spread bitterness, death, destruction, poverty, and revenge, and can never result in peace, because by a pact or treaty they also must lose advantages and benefits.  The fighter at “Yahoo!

Don’t you just wish God Almighty would impose peace upon the world?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;  Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any:  even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.  And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.  And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.  Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.  And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.  (Colossians 3:  12-17, King James Version, KJV)

“Harold”, the divine operations to generate and maintain peace throughout the fullness of Creation also are aspects of the revelation of GOD whereby divinity is made knowable, known, and present for created beings and living creatures.  While ultimate authority, judgment, ownership and sovereignty only are to be found with GOD, the nature of divine control and governance are not coercion, external demands, and intimidation by outside forces.  Among Christian believers, peace is the outcome of judgment (i.e., applying law to establish balance, maintain fairness, resolve conflict, and settle disputes), and self-government under GOD, and is not the outcome or reward for warfare.  Personal peace must appear from within a person through the exchange, joining, interaction, and reconfiguration of inseparable aspects from the divine makeup that must reside within the living.  Included are faith, forbearance, forgiveness, joy, longsuffering, love, meekness, restraint, and wisdom.  With these points in view, one must understand that peace for the world must derive from within the world.  Consider again how some of this is stated using the Bible:

(1.)  Matthew 10:  32-39, King James Version (KJV):  32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.  33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.  34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth:  I came not to send peace, but a sword.  35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.  36 And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.  37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me:  and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.  38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.  39 He that findeth his life shall lose it:  and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.

(2.)  Hebrews 4:  12-13, KJV:  12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.  13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight:  but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.

(3.)  Matthew 5:  8-10, KJV:  8 Blessed are the pure in heart:  for they shall see God.  9 Blessed are the peacemakers:  for they shall be called the children of God.  10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake:  for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

(4.)  John 15:  17-20, KJV:  17 These things I command you, that ye love one another.  18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.  19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own:  but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.  20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.

There is far more to be said, thoughtfully examined, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example, (5.)  Romans 5:  1-5, KJV:  1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:  2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.  3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also:  knowing that tribulation worketh patience;  4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope:  5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
