Peace through Jesus the Christ

Micah 5:4-5, New King James Version (NKJV)

"And He shall stand and feed His flock In the strength of the LORD, In the majesty of the name of the LORD His God; And they shall abide, For now He shall be great to the ends of the earth; and this One shall be peace."

Philippians 4:7, (NKJV)


and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

2 Corinthians 13:11, (NKJV)


11 Finally, brethren, farewell. Become complete. Be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.


John 14:27, (NKJV)

27 Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

John 16:33, (NKJV)


33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

Ephesians 2:14, (NKJV)


14 For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation,


 Isaiah 9:6, (NKJV)

For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Micah 5:5, (NKJV)
"And this One shall be peace." 

Romans 5:1, (NKJV)

Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have[a] peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
 My Comments: In Micah, as with other Old Testament books, we see the foretelling through Prophesy of the coming of the Lord Messiah Jesus and that He will be peace. In other words loved ones with out Him there can be no peace. Not in government or within us or in any situation.
 None will have lasting peace without the one true God and savior. He was chosen by God the Father to save all mankind who would accept His freely given gift. This amazing gift was His Son Jesus the Christ who willingly went to the Cross for our sins so we may be reunited with the Father and become Children of the Living God.
Pastor David Jeremiah says, You see, this world is constantly searching for peace, but the peace they search for is empty. Rather than seeking the One who is peace, they chase after false promises of peace through alcohol, drugs, relationships and even religion.”  And I would add they chase after peace through politics or policy, mollifying fractions, worldly possessions and false doctrines. All is empty and does not bring lasting peace or peace to the soul. Only the one who is peace can do this. Only Jesus Christ can give peace to a hurting world or a hurting soul whether from their own sin or the pain caused by others. He is peace.
Abba Father, fill us with the peace of Your Son Jesus and the Holy Spirit that where we go and when we speak or act it will be in peace and for Your glory. Thank You for Your peace that passes understanding. In Jesus name in union with the Holy Spirit we pray. Amen
