Will there ever be world peace?

July 13, 2012

Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this.

Isaiah 9:7

It doesn't take a whole lot of observation to recognize the world isn't becoming a better place. Yet it wasn't too long ago that many people thought that the world was heading toward its own utopia. World War I was called "the war that would end all wars." And even theologians were predicting the coming of God's Kingdom because mankind was getting better and better!

And yet, we’ve seen just the opposite on a global scale. After World War I came the Second World War, then Korea, Vietnam, the Gulf War, the war on terror, and countless other conflicts that have plagued humankind. And needless to say, almost nobody is predicting world peace anymore.

The only hope for world peace we have is when the the Prince of Peace comes again. On that day, He will set up an everlasting Kingdom of peace right here on earth.

World peace will come, but it won't be by our efforts. Yes, let's strive all we can for peace, but understand that the only real and lasting peace will come when Jesus is King over all the earth and sin is no more!

DO YOUR BEST TO MAKE PEACE, BUT UNDERSTAND THAT REAL AND LASTING PEACE WILL ONLY COME WHEN CHRIST RETURNS.

Face the future with hope!


Dear Friend,

We live in uncertain times—with global economic problems, the threat of terrorism, natural disasters, and violence around the world. But as Christians, you and I can walk into the future with confidence and courage because God has given us hope! And He has provided a clear picture of these last days in His Word.

To help you face the future with confidence and hope, I want to send you two very special resources today: my 3-message DVD series called Israel 2011 and my 10-message CD series,Signs of the Times.

I’ll take you right to the heart of Israel in Israel 2011—to the Sea of Galilee, the Mount of Olives and more—to help you walk the footsteps of Jesus Himself and see how this wonderful land plays a part in the last days. And Signs of the Times will show you how you can be ready for Christ’s return.

These two resources are my gifts to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint Ministries continue to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ. I pray they will strengthen your faith!
