"And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."
Philippians 4:7 (King James Version)
Wherever in the world you may be, however your life may be, find comfort in Christ.
Only the Son of God can give you the strength and comfort you need.
Commit God's Words into your heart and you will be strengthened each day.
The world is not of God, but perhaps, you are?
You'd know if you are, because you have not embraced the many enticements of this world, which do not have the care of your soul in its bosom.
The ruler of this world only cares to mock God, distracting us from worshiping God, aiming to destroy your soul, and leaving you unprepared for when Christ comes.
Humans have been caught up in pride, greed, vanity, lust, and materialism -- all giving you a false sense of power.
Only God can really save us now.
If you doubt me, look only to the world, to see for yourself the state of its soul.
It doesn't belong to God.
Get past the slick offerings, the marketing mania, the veiled intentions, the invented and projected needs, and the focus on addiction in all avenues -- capturing your soul for its dark purpose.
It has been bought, lock, stock, and barrel by Christ's adversary.
That's why Christ came in the first place, to wake us up, to bring us back to God, to teach us how to love His Father, to teach us how to love each other, and to show us eternal life.
In the process, Jesus had to fulfill Scripture and offer His precious life for us, so we may be saved.
While you are in the world, there will be no peace.
The only peace you can have is from Jesus alone:
"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."
John 14:27 (King James Version)
For, it was built on chaos.
It is not of the Kingdom of God.
It you are a man of God , in the service to the Lord, you will know what I speak of.
Only God's Own can really see behind all illusion.
