-WeWNWOOB WllCTN , Bit. I, CAN TttteRE Bfi PfcACfc ON £ARftt? Micah 4: Mr. Catt there he peace oft the earth? The Bible says there can be. The word of Ood is the authority that peace is possible. In order for peace to p r e'v a i 1 God's requirements must be met. Although was has from antiquity been a part of the affairs of the world, It need net always be so. Armaments, although essential as a deterrent to aggressor nations, are not the sole answer*- God has the affairs of the world In His hand, and when His conditions are met; when all people everywhere turn to Him in love, obedience, and service there can be peace on earth. PRESCRIPTION FOR PEACE Micah 1:1-2. \Vhen the kingdom of God gains ascendency over the kingdoms of this world, there will be peace. Peace comes basically to the person who believes in God, and puts His kingdom in first place. If every individual in the world had perfect peace with God, there would be universal peace. The peace that passes all understanding is a personal possession. In another place in the Bible there is this statement, "Thou will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee because he trusteth in thee." Peace in the heart of individual persons will produce peace among people,of all nations. Peace will prevail when the kingdom of God becomes paramount in the world—when' His house is established as the most important institution, and exalted above all others. His kingdom must become attractive, and draw people to it in great numbers. All nations must join in the invitation to go to the house of the Lord. When this takes place God will teach people His ways and they shall walk in paths of righteousness. Peace will prevail when God is enthroned in the hearts and lives of people around the •world. The importance of Micah 4:1-2 is that people must place themselves in proper relationship with God, "But in the last days it shali come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established in jj ptre 'sufBjunoui am jo doj au,} shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it. And many nations shall come and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we Will walk-IB his paths: for the law of the Lord shall go forth in Zion, and the Word of the Lord from Jerusalem." PEOPLE At PEACE Mi cab 4:.1-4. When the conditions presented iti the scripture just quoted are met, peace will prevail. This applies to two areas of life. First, it relates to international relationships. Arma- mehts will be reduced, war will cease, and the leaching of military tactics will come to an end. This is the leaching of Micah 4:3, "And he (God) shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off: and they shall beat their swords! into plow-shares, and their j spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up sword: against nation, neither shall j they learn war any more." | May God speed the day when this may come to pass! The second area in which peace will become a reality is I in the heart and life of each person individually. Every man will feel saie and secure in his own home. The disappearance of the dangers of war remove the basis for fear. This fact is presented in Micah 4:4. "But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree: and none shall make them afraid: lor the mouth of the Lord of hosts hath spoken it." THE PRINCE OF PEACE Micah 4:5-7 God is the giver of all peace. Apart from Him, genuine peace is impossible. When He rules in the human heart there is real peace. As Christ spoke to the waters of the sea, "Peace, be still," so He speaks to human souls everywhere. God's purpose for all people is peace. He has provided peace. He wants us to have it. It can be our possession if we will accept it through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, Himself the Prince of Peace. God is represented as our peace-maker in Micah 4:5-7, "For all people will walk every one in the. name of his god, and we will walk in the name of the Lord our God forever and ever. In that day, saith the Lord, I will assemble her that haltelh, and I will gather her that is driven out, and her that I have afflicted; And I will make her that halted a remnant, and her that was cast off a strong nation: and the Lord shall reign over them in Mount Zion from henceforth, even forever." Auxiliary Makes Plans For 'White Christmas' "A' Write Christmas" was planned at last Monday night's meeting of the American Legion Auxiliary to be held next Fri* day njght in the American Region Hall with members of the American Legion Post as special guests.
