from what source does a world leader
believe he can secure peace?
he can say, “peace, peace,”
but there is no peace...
the ruler of this world
does not want peace, or to negotiate peace.
his aim is destruction and his aim is sure.
evil has buried its roots
in the hearts of men.
for from within,
out of the hearts of men proceed
evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications,
murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness,
deceit, lewdness, blasphemy,
pride and foolishness.
all these evil things
come from within
and defile a man.
we do not wrestle against flesh and blood,
but against principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the darkness of this age,
against spiritual hosts of wickedness
in the heavenly places.
there is only one source of true peace.
Jesus Christ, the prince of peace.
peace I leave with you,
my peace I give to you;
the fruit of His spirit
in men’s hearts is
love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness,
goodness, faith, meekness, and self-control.
Jesus the Christ
is our advocate with
God the Father.
he himself is the sacrifice for our sins,
and not for ours only but also for
the whole world.
the world is passing away, but
he who does the will of God
