Getting To Know God
His Name Is...
The LORD Our Peace - The Prince Of Peace - The Just Judge - The Praise Of God - The Perfection Of God
Peace In Israel
'For the seed [shall be] prosperous, the vine shall give its fruit, the ground shall give her increase, and the heavens shall give their dew--I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these. And it shall come to pass [that] just as you were a curse among the nations, O house of Judah and house of Israel, so I will save you, and you shall be a blessing. Do not fear, let your hands be strong.'
It’s God’s peace alone that produces the quality of benefits that scripture promises. God’s perfect peace produces a quality of prosperity that is eternally pure and good. This happens on account of God’s judgments. God promised Israel prosperity beyond measure, but that prosperity can only come in the absence of sin. So, God’s promise to provide Israel with peace is dependent on the perfection of His judgments; removing corruption while preserving the souls of His people. Israel was a curse, but God diligently works to purge corruption from them, in order to provide the benefits of His peace, just like He’s doing for the rest of us!
