Should we pray for peace on earth?
As we remember the birth of King Messiah Christ Jesus, let’s take a look at that familiar greeting on Christmas cards: ”Peace on earth.”
Luke 2:8-15 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
The Shepherds and the Angels
8 In the same region, shepherds were staying out in the fields and keeping watch at night over their flock. 9 Then an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, “Don’t be afraid, for look, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people: 11 today a Savior, who is Messiah the Lord, was born for you in the city of David. 12 This will be the sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped snugly in cloth and lying in a manger.”
13 Suddenly there was a multitude of the heavenly host with the angel, praising God and saying:
14 Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and peace on earth to people He favors!
15 When the angels had left them and returned to heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go straight to Bethlehem and see what has happened, which the Lord has made known to us.”
First of all, there was a fury of angelic activity before and after the birth of Christ. Those who question angelic involvement in these end times need to take a balanced view. 1 John 4:1 [ The Spirit of Truth and the Spirit of Error ] Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to determine if they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. It says to determine IF they are from God – so it can be from God!
There are many half-truths out there so you must pray to Yahweh in the name of Christ because only our Creator can give you the Spirit of wisdom and understanding. Isaiah 11:2 The Spirit of the LORD will rest on Him — a Spirit of wisdom and understanding, a Spirit of counsel and strength, a Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD.
Hebrews 5: 6 In the same way, the Messiah did not exalt Himself to become a high priest, but the One who said to Him, You are My Son; today I have become Your Father, also said in another passage, You are a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek.”
Christ was appointed by our Creator. Christ did not exalt himself, which clearly reveals that since Yahweh is the “One” that did so, they are not one in the same, but instead, are one in unity with one another. Yahweh Herself had to lose something She loved and Cherished. Who is Yahweh’s Beloved? Who is Her only direct creation? Who is Her only Begotten Son? Who paid the Ransom Sacrifice? Who is the bi-creator of all things in creation except himself and Yahweh? There is only one answer – The Word who is Archangel Michael who later became Christ, a God in his own right and deserves glory due to him.
Ephesians 2:13 ” But now in Christ Jesus, you who were far away have been brought near by the blood of the Messiah. For He is our peace, who made both groups one and tore down the dividing wall of hostility.”
Christ brought the believing Israelites and the Gentile group of believers into the grace of Father as one spiritual group of faithful followers to Father, known as Spiritual Israelites, thus “peace on earth to people He favors!”
There is a very important difference between “peace on earth to people He favors!” as explained above and “peace on earth.” Christ the Messiah came to pay the Ransom Sacrifice for those born into secondary sin but this earth remains under Satan’s rule until this day.
Matthew 4:8-9 Again, the Devil took Him to a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor.And he said to Him, “I will give You all these things if You will fall down and worship me.”
John 18:36 “My kingdom is not of this world,” said Jesus. “If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, so that I wouldn’t be handed over to the Jews. As it is, My kingdom does not have its origin here.”
Did Jesus say he was bringing peace and good tidings to this planet before the wrath? Or did mankind make the wrong assumption about the grown up Christ? You see, many still depict Christ as the baby of Salvation. But he has grown beyond his baby years and is at his Mother’s right hand, awaiting these earthly kingdoms to be crushed and ground into dust with rebel mankind so that his Millennial Rule can begin with his and Mother’s children.
Matthew 10:34 “Don’t assume that I came to bring peace on the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.”
In truth, Satan wants peace and tranquility on earth but the devil whose name was Dawn Lucifer is not a rightful ruler in creation. Satan was the first angel to institute rebellion in the heavenly family. Therefore, he knows rebellion divides and is designed to topple governments. With that lesson learned, he seeks to bring the human creation into harmony with his ruler-ship. We know that he is unable to achieve that goal, since he has been working on it since the beginning of his rebellion, his own rule cannot stand. Why is there no peace on earth? Because of mankind’s differences, and because of Mother Yahweh’s intervention, he cannot achieve a lasting peace. Until these end times, Yahweh has stripped Satan and his angels of powers so they could not bring a lasting peace to earth, because the peace would be one of bondage, and would not be serving Her throne. Satan would quite simply force people to not commit crimes or he would kill them. If nations started wars with one another, he would deal harshly with an entire nation that started the conflict.
If Satan was able to achieve his goals, then Yahweh’s Way would not be followed, because Satan seeks to go another direction than the path our Mother originally prepared for all of Her intelligent creations.. There would be no crime, but there would also be no free will. That is not what our Father/Mother wants for Her intelligent creations. She wants kingdom subjects that serve in harmony to Her Way out of free will and love for Her Way, not Satan’s way. We have been sharing the truth about Yahweh’s wrath upon this planet? Do you think we are for or against Satan?
Mark 3:26 “And if Satan rebels against himself and is divided, he cannot stand but is finished!”
Satan already has all of his powers returned to fulfill prophecy of the anti-Christ. He will force mankind to obey his way of ruler-ship. In this way, he hopes to force his own brand of peace upon his kingdom subjects under the New World Order. By having them bear his mark of governmental rule, because “mark of the beast” simply means “mark of his governmental rule,” is and will be Satan’s last ditch effort to try and unify mankind and to try and harmonize it to his own ruler-ship. Again, he seeks to interfere in free will, and thereby take away the right to purchase anything without being loyal to his governmental rule. Satan wants to clean the world of all those that not only serve Mother Yahweh, but also those that act ruinously to cause division in his kingdom. He will threaten with death are the rebels against his government that seek Christ’s and Mother Yahweh’s government over his. So, when the Antichrist makes his move, it is in reflection of Yahweh’s own house cleaning when Satan and his angels were cast down from heaven, known as the 1908 Tunguska Explosion.
So when you pray, don’t pray for peace on earth. Instead, pray that Yahweh’s Will be done. Because peace is not on the agenda until the final push and invasion by the Lions of Zion led by Michael the Archangel takes place that will crush all of these present day kingdoms and destroy all of these rebels left on this planet. Remember what Christ said – don’t make unfounded assumptions. Learn the truth of all matters. To do that, make sure of all things by study of the Word. Then hold fast to what is fine.
