“The Peace of God”
“I am leaving with you a gift — peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.”
Signed… Jesus Christ.
No…the world cannot give this peace. It is impossible, for it is not of its nature. Is it any wonder? A friend and I had our Fellowship/church at the Dunes in northern Indiana this last week. I’m so glad it was not a hot sunny day, because the cool breezes, and the mixtures of blues, whites, and greys in the water and sky were so PEACEFUL! God knew the best medicine and what the aesthetics of our sanctuary that day should be! This was a view that was “felt” as much as seen.
The birds were at peace too, (imagine that), as they enjoyed the tan colored sand and green grasses against the backdrop of a lake so big, it seems as the sea. All of this and more mixed together to create an aesthetic of peace and beauty. Both the bird and the landscape seemed unaware of what was going on with man, in the big cities, in Indianapolis just three hours away, in Chicago not so far away, in the media, our cell phones, and the minds and hearts of so many. Racism, Covid 19, and politics. All our media’s current favorite subjects.
Is there something wrong with me that when I see how the world does things, I simply go farther out to sea? I seek more Holy Spirit, more of the love of God, more of the wisdom of God? And does that mean I don’t care about what has happened to the black man, and the pain they feel, and the rage they need to vent? Is that what it means?
The best answers come from a peaceful mind.
Less than best come out of minds of chaos, torment, fear, hate.
The world simply is not my way. It’s not that I don’t care, but I see the over reacting, the violence, the closed minds filled with socialist agendas and antichrist thinking, and I know where this is going. So I speak the Sword of the Lord, but no one wants to hear it, because the Bible is part of the problem, I am part of the problem, so they say.
So I found myself fellowshiping with the cool breeze, a great lake, a good friend, and some winged birds. God showed up in that place, and in my soul. I will continue looking to the vast ocean of God for my answers. He wrote them upon the waves of the pages of my Bible, the cool breeze of His Holy Spirit, and the sharp edge of His Sword.
This is why the world will shout the Bible down. It will not be allowed to speak. Darkness flees when light speaks, so it must not be allowed! God’s Sword must not be allowed to come out of our mouth, because Eve/Gaia cannot stand when this Sword cuts!
“Pull down your father’s altar to Baal, and cut down the Asherah pole (Canaanite goddess) standing beside it.” (God’s instructions to Gideon. Judges 6:25)
“The head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.” (1st Cor. 11:3)
Yes…we are the greatest danger to the New Age Movement, Socialism, Rise of woman, and Gaia worshipers. This is true. And the modern church will “cave” right on time, but Gideon’s 300, and Elijah’s 7,000, and the message of John the Baptist will not cave. This world may shout down the modern church and put them in checkmate, but never the likes of Gideon, Elijah, or John the Baptist, whose souls were full of the Sea, the peace and power of God.
Sail on Soul Sailors… fill your sails with the Wind, not the chaos of this world. God is the Wind under our wings and in our sails. Prepare to walk on water, come what may. Pray now, so you will not be lacking later, if the Lord be your Shepherd.
