Who will bring peace? – Awake! Awake!

EDITOR: More than likely, we all desire to have peace! Recently, the US, North and South Korea, along with China, have been talking about “peace.”

It sounds great that they are talking of peace.

However, people, we really need to pay attention to what the ‘Most High,’ the God of everlasting strength, Jehovah, (Psalm 83:18; Isaiah 26:4) inspired the Bible writer to write at 1 Thessalonians 5: 2, 3.

It states: “For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

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.” This Scripture is plainly showing us that the nations will NOT be able to bring true peace and safety.Who will? Of course, Almighty God! Psalm 37: 10, 11 assure us that it is God who will destroy the wicked and give an “abundance of peace” to the meek, righteous ones.

We cannot say exactly when the world will end, for as 1 Thessalonians 5:2 shows, the Lord’s Day comes as a thief – suddenly, unexpectedly, catching many by surprise! (See Mark 13:32 also) Now is the time to awake spiritually! Get to know God and His Son quickly.
