“PEACE BE STILL!”
FEEL SAFE AND MOVE FORWARD WITH THE POWER OF FAITH
The perfect will of God for humans in the creation was that, he should live gloriously in perfect peace and harmony with God his maker, and enjoy all good things which were made for his inheritance, ‘’And God saw everything that He had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day’’ Gen.1:31. However, immediately sin came into existence through Adam’s disobedience, problems came upon the human race and men began to experience hardship which stand as stumbling block against God’s glorious plan for humanity. The Bible uncovers this fact saying: “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God”. Romans 3:23.
This was the beginning of turbulence on earth that made many people confused and conclude that it is part of life which cannot be reversed; some say it is God’s way of dealing with man because of his disobedience to His commandments. However, the Lord Jesus outlined ways through which one can overcome turbulence in his life, saying. “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me, you might have peace. In the world, you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer: I have overcome the world” John 16:33.
Do you know what it means to “have peace in Christ"? No one banking on human knowledge can understand this statement, which becomes difficult for unbelievers who have no knowledge of the person of Jesus Christ to understand. This is because they lack knowledge in the mysteries of the word of God; but the elect who had got an encounter with the divine wisdom of God, to them is given to understand the mysteries of the word. Here is the manifestation of the mystery’’
“In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God. … And the word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. John.1:1,14.
This very illustration stands for our Lord Jesus manifestation as the word which proceed out from the mouth of God. How can this be? Can words become a person? Yes, The Almighty God who is fully empowered with glory and might, He commanded His word into a virgin’s womb, called Mary, and formed a baby boy who is our Lord Jesus Christ, which was prophesied in the old by Prophet Isaiah saying. Therefore, the LORD Himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a Son, and shall called His name Immanuel’’. Isa.7:14.
This particular Son is the seed of a woman whom God referred to when the Serpent Beguiled Eve in the Garden of Eden, saying ‘’And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shall bruise His heel’ Gen.3:15. The reality of this word came to manifestation when the woman (Virgin Mary) brought forth a child named (Jesus) whom God gave the power of salvation to save mankind from the sin of Adam.
Since it was by one man (Adam) through whom all have sinned, which brought eternal judgment upon men, even death penalty. So also, God redeemed human through one man (Jesus Christ) that whosoever believe in Him shall be made righteous and salvaged from eternal judgment into righteousness of God, and shall have eternal life. Rom.5:12-15. What qualified the Son of God to obtain such high level of glory from His Father? Based on the scenarios that surround His birth, according to what was written of Him even before He was born.
‘’For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace’’. Isaiah.9:6. He was born as God in human form, to rule over every god, lords, kings of the universe, and He is a reigning King forever, Amen. Daniel.2:44. This truth is substantiated by the following verses of the Bible. Titus.2:13, Gen.49:8-12, Num.24:19, 1 King 17:11-14, Ps.2:6-9, Isa. 9:6-7, Matt. 22:41-45.
‘’THE PERSON OF GOD’’
Why most religious people are confused about the person of God?
WHO IS GOD?
Many people do misunderstand the person of God, even as several others don’t know who God is. God does not mean a name of a person; it is a title for the Supreme Being who created all things and rules over them. For example, when one is called king, professor, doctor, barrister, governor, president, etc. These are no name for identification, but it’s titles that qualify anyone based on their career, profession or positions. The creator of all things has a name which is (JEHOVAH) Exo.6:3, Ps.83:18, Ch.68:4. And His title is “God Almighty”,
He thereby decided on His own goodwill to do wonders by saving mankind from their sins, because no one is capable to take over the ruling seat which Adam had fell from right in the beginning of the age. Jehovah God thereby commanded His word to become human, which is Jesus Christ. He has been crowned to take over the everlasting ruling seat that got lost from Adam the first man. God empowered Him to rule over all creature, men, angels, principality, powers, visible, invisible, in heaven and in the earth. All were subjected to the Son of God (Jesus Christ) and the Son also is subjected to the Father (JEHOVAH) (this signify that, Father in the Son and Son in the Father) John.10:30, Matt.11:25-27. As a matter of fact, He whom power is given ought to exercise His capability of assuring peace and safety upon those He rules, mostly at the period of turbulence, which the Bible gave evidence of our Lord Jesus divine competence during the time of His ministry here on earth. He manifested His power on the note that, when He was to pass across the sea to the other side of the lake with His disciples on a certain day, that a great storm arose on the sea through which the boat was about to capsize, and His disciples were so afraid because of the turbulent waves on the water. Meanwhile, the Lord Jesus was already asleep at that hour and His disciples ran to wake Him immediately, being perplexed and worried as if the survival of the crew was not guaranteed. With immediate effect, the Lord Jesus awoke and rebuked the waves saying, “Peace be still’’. Mark.4:39.
Within the twinkling of an eye, something unusual happened to the turbulent water that day and the sea obeyed His voice which led to great calm immediately. Mark.4:35-41. Without being in doubt; if there be great power in a man “Jesus Christ” who rebuked the sea and great calm came forth instantly, it means the assurance of His capability upon whoever that believe in Him and follow His way to the end. Based on what He spoke further, saying: “In me you shall have peace”, John.16:33. Definitely there will be peace in the life of whoever believe in Him and hide under the atmosphere of His power without compromising; for he who commanded the turbulent waters saying, ‘’Peace be still” and a great calm came forth. Amen.
There must have been a reason for turbulent periods under the sun which the Lord had given its awareness, and such things that one must go through in life before he/she passes on in the earth, He said. “In the world, you shall have tribulation”, John.16: 33b. This signifies that, at the turbulent periods, Christ power shall be made manifest in one’s life when passing through trials and temptations and yet steadfast in the faith toward God. The Lord had encouraged on this fact and said, ‘’no crown without cross’’ Rev.2:10.
“Tribulation is meant to gear one up to a solution”
Facing turbulent period always draw man closer to God, according to the Bible written. “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength they shall mount up with wings as eagles: they shall run, and not be weary: and they shall walk, and not faint’’’. Isa.40:31, tribulation is meant to gear one up to a solution while passing through tough times on earth and whoever seeks the Lord shall find solution to any kind of problem ahead. To call upon the Lord as the disciples did that saved them from the turbulent waters is the best solution to all life problems, through which great calm can be restored. Another important thing to observe is to acknowledge the Lord’s divine power, just as the disciples did that saved them from calamity.
It seems as though the Jews didn’t acknowledge the person of Jesus as Christ who came to save them, which was the problem that befell them in the old, in which they denied that he wasn’t their Messiah, and were dammed for their ignorance. Matt.22:41-46. No wonder the Lord asked His disciples saying, ‘’Who do men say that I the Son of man am? Matt.16:13, and the divinely inspired Simon Peter answered and called Him Christ, the Son of the Living God. Matt.16:16.
The greatest things to know about Jesus Christ are stated in the Bible from Genesis to Revelation as follows: He is born King that shall rule over all things forever. 1Chronicles.17:13-14. He is God in humankind who has power upon all flesh, Isaiah.9:6-7, John.17:2. He is reigning Judge over all things. John.5:22-27. His power supersedes all powers John.11:25-26. Besides, whosoever believes in Him shall rise up from all deadly turbulent periods, come what it may be; and the name of the LORD God Almighty shall be glorified. It doesn’t matter whatever that may be the cause; your faith in Christ makes you different from others.
The Lord Jesus is the ultimate source in which one can acquire power to curb any case of turbulence on earth, Jesus power is the best because it is sure and secured. Amen. Many people have gone to seek for power in horrible places, like occultist kingdoms which is magic powers, they join secret societies because of the turbulent periods that challenge them, thinking they can find solution to their problems in the darkness; but instead of getting solution from the previous problems they are battling with; more were added unto their problems and things became worse at the end.
It is impossible for agents of darkness, occultists, witches, wizards, marine spirits, ogbanjes et al to bring solution to any problem brought before them, because our Lord Jesus has an answer for such situation, saying. ‘’And if Satan cast out Satan he is divided against himself: how can then his kingdom stands?’’ Matt.12:26. The bible defines Satan as opposition of God’s will in the world; he is always opposed to God’s will on earth, most especially with whosoever that wanted to put the will of God into practice. Gen.3:3:4-5.
Let’s observe how he secretly plotted against Job in the old. ‘’Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, Doth Job fear God for naught? Hast not thou made a hedge about his house, and about all that he has on every side? Thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land. But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he has, and he will curse thee to thy face’’. Job.1:9-11. Satan is a jealous being and author of confusion that brought tribulation into the earth; he does these things that men may be captured and be put into the bondage of sin so that they will be found guilty in one way or the other in the sight of God. Rev.12:12.
He has no plan for anybody, neither does his mission have anything good to offer than sorrow, pain and death; likewise, are his agents, they are all liars and cannot find lasting solution to any problems for those who patronize them. One should be very careful not to fall victim and become ignorant of their gimmick while patronizing them. Believers are encouraged as fast as possible to come quickly unto the Lord Jesus who can help them out of the wicked snare. The devil is a thief, John.10:10, looking for large number of people that shall follow him down into the pit of hell and be destroyed. He fought in heaven against the angels, Rev.12:7-11, and is still fighting against humanity till today, and I ask; can he who fought against heavenly hosts fear to fight anybody on the earth?
This is the genesis of the war against mankind that made the world turned up-side down and is flaming with troubles. The wicked plot is to enslave whosoever that fall victim of sin by disobeying God’s commandments, that such a person may be entangled and brought into captivity to be punished on the day of judgment. We should care to know what the Bible says and be saved. ‘’And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, if any man worships the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand. The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of His indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascended up forever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receive the mark of his name. Here is the patience of the saints; here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus’’. Rev.14:9-11.
Here is another warning to all believers that they may beware! ‘’If any has an ear, let him hear. He that leaded into captivity shall go into captivity; he that killed with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints’’. Rev.13:9-10. Imagine what a cruel way the occultist priests use to settle cases brought before them. They always see fake visions, accusing one’s family and friends as being the cause of one’s problems. They won’t be specific that such evil priests are the brain behind particular problems that impose tragedy on people’s neck un-knowingly. They cannot forgive their offenders, neither would they free their captive. They love taking innocent blood which is required by Satan their lord, and they are bloody creation.
Let’s examine the teaching of our Lord Jesus on how to relate with those who offended us, He said. ‘’For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses’’. Matt.6:14-15. Why this? Because those whom we are seeing as enemies through their involvement at the hour of our trial and temptation, they are not the principal actor, but the devil took the advantage of their weakness and brain-washed them to be used in doing such things. The Bible further explains and says. ‘’For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places’’. Eph.6:12
To continue revenging teeth for teeth won’t lead to peace but chaos which the entire world is experiencing globally. ‘’Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away, behold, all things are become new’’. 2Cor.5:17. To overcome the present situation lay on total submission unto our Lord Jesus, and resisting the devil; one should not mind those glittering things that become traps for majority of men nowadays. Therefore, beloved, stick to the truth that you may arrive on high levels of faith to withstand the wave of life at the turbulent period on earth; the Lord is the strength of they that are weak in the evil day. Be elevated by the power of faith in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
Be attentively to read on second Chapter of this book ‘’Peace Be Still!’’ at the same first day of the month of August, Be in peace and joy of the Lord till then beloved, Amen.
Jesus Christ is Lord
