“And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places.” Matthew 24:6-7 ESV
In a Nation with home terrorist attacks like the San Bernardino shootings and Boston, violence in cities, organized crime, economic pressures, and dysfunctional families, how can we have Peace?
In a Tribe with alcohol abuse, drug abuse, domestic violence, cousins killing cousins , and youth suicides–four in just two weeks in Alaska, how can we have Peace?
In our personal lives filled with addictions, disappoints, health issues, fears, and financial problems, how can we have Peace?How can we ever hope to have PEACE???
In the World — maybe we should stop trying to be the policeman of the world, but by example be a “light on a hill,” a sanctuary of Peace and liberty.
“I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 ESV

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” Eph. 6:12

Peace with God:
“And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:7 ESV
Yes! It would be hard to have World Peace, National Peace, and Tribal peace.
Yet – despite all the problems we face, we CAN have Inner Peace– through the love and grace of our Father Creator.
“When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles.” Psalm 34:17 ESV
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.” Ephesians 6:12 ESV
First, we need to make peace with God.
Why you ask? Because we have broken the relationship with Him, we wanted to go our own way.
We are all sinners and that broke the relationship that our Creator wanted with us. Because He loves us so much He took care of our sinful nature by sending His only son– Jesus Christ as our perfect “Peace Offering”. Christ became the best Gift that anyone could ever receive. We now we have a choice to accept His Free Gift of a New Life, and restore the relationship with our loving Father Creator.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.” John 3:16-17 ESV
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” Romans 6:23 ESV
“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”Romans 3:23 ESV
Take Action now.
“… if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9
INNER PEACE –Through your New Life in Jesus Christ
“Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.” Romans 5:1-2 ESV
This Christmas, YOU can have this Inner Peace despite the World, Nation, or Tribe we live in.
You have a choice. Ask the Lord into your life, and let him bring this Real Peace into your life. If you do this you can affect your family, clan, tribe, nation, and even the world.
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.” John 14:27 ESV
“For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.” Romans 8:6 ESV
As a Christian — you can claim the promises of peace that are given to you in His Word.
