Scripture for the Day – January 23, 2020

But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. (Matthew 4:4)

It is amazing to me what is repeated in gospel music lyrics, and even sermons, that God did not say. I have written about this same subject before under the tile of “Who Told You That?” Some of our precious friends are directors of a ministry that deals with people with addictions and that is one of the questions they ask their people when these people start quoting things that they have heard over the years that have no biblical accuracy. They will ask them, “Who told you that? Where is that in the Bible”?

One of the lyrics that I have heard used repeatedly in recent years is “the Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away.” Now, I ask you, who said that? Most people would fire back at you and say that’s in the Bible. That is not the question. The question is, who said that? There a lot of people that say things in the Bible. Even Satan says things in the Bible. Do you want to use Satan’s words to preach a message or write a gospel song? I don’t think so!

This particular quote was spoken by Job in a time of great stress where he was searching for answers. Was Job a righteous man? Yes he was, but he was not God. He was human just like you and me and he had some beliefs about God that were not exactly right.

And said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord. (Job 1:21)

The great Prime Minister of England, Winston Churchill, once said, “A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.” Satan understands that principle very well because he is the Father of Lies. If you read the first two chapters of the Book of Job with an open mind you will learn that God was not the one doing the taking, Satan was. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (John 10:10) If you read the last chapter of Job you will find that Job’s friends had to repent for things they said about God that were not true. Job also had to repent. I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee. Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes. (Job 42:5-6)

Did you notice what Job said there? I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear. Job was relying on what other people told him, including his friends. It is really important who you listen to, and it is even more important that you have a personal relationship with God so you can hear directly from Him.

The last chapter of Job shows you the heart of God. He is a restorer! He is a giver and not a taker!

Be careful what you hear little children!!!

My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: (John 10:27)

Scripture for the Day – January 22, 2020

“The kingdom of heaven is like a [very precious] treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid again; then in his joy he goes and sells all he has and buys that field [securing the treasure for himself]. (Matthew 13:44, Amplified Bible)

There are numerous places in the scripture where the things of God are described as treasures. Treasures are not normally just laying around for anybody to pickup off the ground. They are usually hidden and take great effort to locate such as treasure buried in the ground or in sunken ships. It’s no different with God’s treasures. We have an enemy, and he will always surround God’s treasures with an invisible fence to keep you away from them. How does he do that?

The invisible fence that keeps us from the treasure:

Lies and accusations from the enemy
Confusion and turmoil (everybody has an opinion)
Persuasive but thoroughly deceptive arguments
Feelings and emotions (the enemy’s territory)
Fear (we have not been given a spirit of fear)
Religious doctrines (some attribute the things of Satan to God)

You cannot fight what you cannot see! You must be able to see the fence to break through the fence and take hold of the treasure. How do we do that?

1. FaithThese things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. (John 16:33) For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. (1 John 5:4)
2. PeaceThou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. (Isaiah 26:3) Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart. (2 Timothy 2:22)
3. PersistenceAnd he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint; Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man: And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary. And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man; Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me. And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith. And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? (Luke 18:1-8)

Don’t let the tricks of the enemy keep you from God’s treasures. Press in!!!

Scripture for the Day – January 21, 2020

“This is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.” (John 5:14-15)

Have you ever found yourself in the middle of a very bad situation, and someone said to you, “Well, the only thing left to do is to pray”? How did you react? Did you think, “Oh my goodness, has it come to that”? Or did you ask, “Are things really that bad?” Unfortunately, that’s how most people in today’s society feel about spiritual things. Many people never turn to God until they have absolutely nowhere else to turn. God is usually their last resort. So many times, Jesus has to wait until the deepest, darkest hour because that’s when people finally turn to Him.

Some people actually believe that God put them in the hospital just so He could talk to them. But the truth of the matter is many people never look up until they are lying flat on their backs! God had the answer for them all the time, but it wasn’t until they were forced to lie still and get quiet that they would listen to the voice of God. God doesn’t knock people down just so He can help them get back up.

James 1:17 says, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow or turning.” God does not send sickness and poverty and misery just to teach us something.

Some have the wrong idea about God and spiritual things. Too many people don’t understand God, and it’s a natural tendency for people to fear what they don’t understand. What kind of images pop into your mind when someone mentions the spiritual realm to you? What kind of words would you use to describe the spirit realm? Most people use words like dark, eerie, cold, mysterious and spooky to describe the spiritual realm. Whenever you mention spiritual things, they automatically get flashbacks of Freddy Krueger, Dracula, and all the other horror movies they’ve seen. Many associate the spirit realm with death, because the only time they think about it is when someone they know dies.

This constitutes a great victory for the enemy of our souls. Satan wants to keep our attention fixed on the natural and physical side of life. Only in the most painful moments of grief do most people consider spiritual things. It’s no wonder they have a dark picture of the spirit realm. Just like people associate a doctor with sickness and pain, they associate the spirit realm with death. This causes people to respond to spiritual things with death in the forefront of their minds. But God sent Jesus so that we could have LIFE!

God doesn’t want you to turn to Him as a last resort! He doesn’t want you to be afraid of Him. 1 John 4:18-19 says, “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. We love Him because He first loved us.” He wants to lead you and guide you from the very beginning. He wants you to put Him first! God is a merciful God, and He will always help you with your problems when you ask Him to. But He never wanted you to go through that problem in the first place. He has a better way!!!

Scripture for the Day – January 20, 2020

“This is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.” (John 5:14-15)

One question that is common when there is a need for prayer is this: “How should I pray?” That is a good question, but it is also an easy one to answer. When we pray, we should always pray God’s will, which is His Word, and we should pray in the Spirit.

When Jesus was here on the earth, He said something that shows us how to pray. “For I have not spoken on My own authority: but the Father who sent Me gave Me a command, what I should say and what I should speak. And I know that His command is everlasting life. Therefore, whatever I speak, just as the Father has told Me, so I speak.” (in John 12:49-50). Jesus himself tells us here that He only said what the Father told him to say.

When we pray, we need to pray the Word of God because the Word is the Father’s thoughts, words, and will about everything (2 Timothy 3:16-17). Too many Christians are out there praying for things to happen in their lives that are totally against God’s will for them.

If we want God to hear us when we pray, we must know His will. The only way to know His will is to know His Word. Only then will we know how to pray effectively.

Once a man told me that his son and daughter-in-law were having problems in their marriage. He said that they were both raised in Christian families and claimed to be Christians. They had a child and for a while, seemed to have a happy family. But then something happened and now it looked like they might get a divorce. Then he asked me this question. “How should I pray? Should I pray that they separate and each find someone that will make them happy or should I pray that they stay together?”

I told this man to get out his Bible and see what God said about it, then pray the Word. A few days later he told me that he had direction in his prayers now. He knew God’s will was not divorce.

In the same way, when we get sick, we must pray the will of God. I’ve heard well-meaning Christians pray that the sick person wouldn’t be in too much pain if they die. Don’t pray for me that way! Keep those people away from me! Wouldn’t it be better to pray God’s Word? For instance, James 5:14 says, “Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up.” Praying God’s will in faith brings life. If you don’t pray the will of God in faith, you’re wasting your time.

If you want to pray God’s will and can’t find it in the Word, then pray in the Spirit. “Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.”(Romans 8:26).

So, it’s this way. Pray the Word or pray in the Spirit. Either way, you will be praying the will of God and He will hear you. And when God hears His will being prayed, He acts on His Word.

Scripture for the Day – January 17, 2020

Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. (Proverbs 18:21)

Probably one of the most misunderstood elements of faith is speaking those things that be not as though they were. It was misunderstood when Jesus spoke to the fig tree and it’s still misunderstood today. Let’s just take a few minutes to examine a few verses of scripture:

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1, KJV)

The Amplified Bible says it like this: Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses].

There are two sides to everything. There is a natural side and a spiritual side. You and I have a natural body that is temporal, but we also have a spirit body that is eternal. Everything that you see in nature was initially created by the faith utterances of God. God spoke and there was!!! Jesus followed the same pattern as His Father. When He spoke to a live tree to dry up, it perished. When He spoke to demons, they had to leave. When He spoke to the storm, it had to quit storming. When He spoke to sick people, they became well. When He spoke to dead people, they came to life. Was all that a show to prove who He was, or was it a teaching lesson for all of us? Were these examples of calling those things that be not as though they were? I think so!

Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth. (Proverbs 6:2)

A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh. (Luke 6:45)

This is where the rubber meets the road. What is coming out of your mouth? Is it criticism, bitterness and hate? Or, is it exhortation and encouragement? Is it words that build up or tear down? Is it words of hope or words of fear and anxiety? Whatever is coming out your mouth is in abundance in your heart!!! It’s not just a little bit, it’s a lot!!!

Jesus preached good news to the poor. If I was poor, good news would be that I did not have to stay poor all my life. Jesus spoke healing to the sick and freedom to the demon possessed. We have Jesus living inside of us!!! Should we not be speaking the same type of things? This is not hyper-faith as some propose but simply doing what we have been
commissioned to do.

And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen. (Matthew 16:15-20)

Scripture for the Day – January 16, 2020

Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. (Proverbs 18:21)

Words are serious business. And, as believers, we need to get serious about learning how to use them. We need to begin to put them to work for us like God Himself does. The Bible tells us that He uses words to “call those things which be not as though they were” (Romans 4:17). We see it throughout the Bible from creation on.

Most of us don’t have the faintest idea how to do that. We’ve spent our lives “telling it like it is.” We’ve constantly used our mouths to report on the sorry state of affairs around us. Thus, the very thought of calling “things which be not as though they were” seems a little crazy. “You mean I’m supposed to say, ‘I’m healed’ when I’m feeling sick? I’m supposed to say, ‘I’m prosperous’ when I’m penniless? That sounds like lying to me.”

No, no! There’s a vast difference between lying and speaking by faith. A lie is meant to deceive someone. It’s designed to make someone believe something that’s not true. But to speak by faith is simply to speak words that agree with the Word of God instead of the circumstances around you. It’s speaking from your spirit instead of from your mind.

Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. (1 Peter 2:4). Notice that the healing has already been accomplished. We just must believe it and confess it out of our mouth. That’s walking by faith, and not by sight. That’s not lying!

The enemy understands the power of the tongue all too well. Listen to this scripture. But they were insistent and unrelenting, demanding with loud voices that Jesus be crucified. And their voices began to prevail and accomplish their purpose. (Luke 23:23, Amplified Bible) What if we were insistent, unrelenting, and demanding with loud voices on speaking those things (that agree with the Word) that be not as though they were? Do you think we may see more of the promises of God come to life? I think we would!!!

As the Apostle Paul said in 2 Corinthians 4:13, “We have the same spirit of faith as he had who wrote, I have believed, and therefore have I spoken. We too believe, and therefore we speak” (The Amplified Bible). Now that’s important. Read that verse again. “I have believed, and therefore have I spoken.”

There are some folks who speak the words, but they don’t have the faith to back it up, and as a result, they fall flat on their spiritual faces. They didn’t actually “call things that be not as though they were.” They called things that be not the way they wished they were. Those are two very different things. The words may be the same. But just wishing and hoping won’t get the job done. You’ve got to believe.

Begin today bringing both your tongue and your heart in line with the Word. Stop “telling it like it is” and start speaking and believing the promises of God. Put the power of words to work for you.

And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you. (Luke 17:6)

And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: (1 Corinthians 1:28)

Scripture for the Day – January 15, 2020

James 1:12-17: Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him. 13 Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone. 14 But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. 15 Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death. 16 Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren. 17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.

God is not the tempter. That is spelled out in verse 13. We also know from scripture in Genesis 3 that Satan tempted Eve in the Garden of Eden. And in Luke 4 Satan tempted Jesus in the wilderness.

In John 10:10 Jesus said, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it more abundantly.”

Jesus taught His disciples how to pray in Luke 11. In verse 4 He says, “And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.”

I Peter 5:8: Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.

I Corinthians 10:13 says, “No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.” No temptation will overtake you if you are submitted to God and His Word.

James 4:7 says, “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” Someone once asked me, “How do you resist the devil?” By staying submitted to God and His Word. That’s what Jesus did in the midst of the temptation in Luke 4. When he quoted from God’s Word the devil left Him.

I John 2:14 says, “I write to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God lives in you, and you have overcome the evil one.”

Stay submitted to God’s Word because the Word makes you strong and by it you resist the evil one.

The devil will leave you just like he left Jesus,

Scripture for the Day – January 14, 2020

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9)

Many years ago, I sat in on a church business meeting. I had not actually gone to church to attend the business meeting, but I was already there, so I stayed. After all, if I had gone home, I would have probably watched television, and there is no way that a TV show could be as entertaining as a church business meeting.

The first order of business was the financial report. It was noted that the church had over $30,000 in a savings account that had been sitting idle for several years. Nothing else was mentioned about the $30,000 and the financial report was approved.

When it came time for new business, someone mentioned that there were several families that lived in a certain area who had expressed an interest in coming to church. Because some of the parents were working singles, they had no transportation for their children. In other words, they wanted to come to church, but did not have a way to get there.

Eventually, the discussion centered on the prospect of the church buying a small van to pick up these people and bring them to church. It was at this point the chairman of the board of deacons stood up and made this remark. He said, “I’m sure if we buy this van that we will be able to pick up a few new people in the church. And, I realize that there may be some new converts. But, I would rather have the money in the bank than a few new faces in the church. Wouldn’t you?”

I could hardly believe my ears. How can we place a price on the lives of those who are lost? How can we put a limited value on a soul? Jesus gave everything for them. We should do the same.

In Matthew 18:11-14, Jesus said, “For the Son of Man has come to save that which was lost. What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them goes astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine and go to the mountains to seek the one that is straying? And if he should find it, assuredly, I say to you, he rejoices more over that sheep than over the ninety-nine that did not go astray. Even so it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish.”

Here Jesus made a very interesting statement. He said that God, the Father, in heaven does not want anyone to perish. He wants everyone to be in the fold. It is His will that no one should be destroyed.

Now, of course there are restrictions. Sometimes we just don’t have the resources to do everything we want to do. But we must make every attempt to spread the good news of Jesus.

Later at the same business meeting someone asked the deacon who didn’t want to spend the money, what he would rather do with the $30,000. He said, “I’d rather just leave it in the bank and do nothing with it.” And that’s what they voted to do.

So, here’s the point. We must have the same goals and desires that God has. God’s desire is that all should be saved. He has brought the good news of salvation to a lost and dying world. We must now do our part. We must do all we can. We must do whatever is necessary. We must win the lost, whatever the cost.

Scripture for the Day – January 13, 2020

For with God nothing shall be impossible. (Luke 1:37)

Is it possible to see Jesus? Is it possible that Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the Son of God, the One Who died on the cross and was raised from the dead would personally visit you in your home and talk with you? Is it possible that Jesus could have a discussion with you about your life and give you advice that could change your destiny?

As a young Christian, I heard stories of people who had a visitation from Jesus. I thought people like that were crazy. After all, I had been taught in my church that after Jesus ascended into heaven, He sat down at the right hand of the Father and that’s where He was going to stay until the Father decided to send Him back for the church in the
Rapture.

It’s amazing what determines what a person believes. Once I met a man who would only drive a Ford pickup truck. He had the Ford logo painted on his rear window. He had a Ford jacket and a baseball cap with Ford written on it. This man loved his Ford pickup. When I asked him why he felt Fords were the best, he said, “My dad always drove a Ford, and his dad before him. I will always drive a Ford because they did.”

Sadly, in a recent survey that was the same reason that people said they were Baptists, Presbyterians, Lutherans, etc. Too many people believe what they believe and attend the church they do solely because it’s the church their parents attended or it’s the closest one to their home. It’s amazing that people will make decisions that determine their eternal destiny and the quality of their life here on earth strictly because of tradition or convenience.

So, when I heard someone say that Jesus had appeared to them, the church I was raised in didn’t believe that could happen, so neither did I. Then one day while reading my Bible, I read in Acts chapter nine that Jesus appeared to Ananias and, according to the Bible, Ananias actually saw Jesus and carried on a conversation with Him (vs. 10-15). (This was after Jesus had ascended into heaven.)

Acts chapter eighteen tells us that one-night Paul saw Jesus and Jesus gave him instructions on what to do in His ministry (vs. 9-10). In Acts chapter twenty-two, Paul tells of a conversation he had with Jesus in Jerusalem. In verse eighteen the Bible says that he saw Jesus and Jesus gave him advise that, if obeyed, would save his life. It was in this conversation with Jesus that Paul learned he would be sent great distances to take the gospel to the Gentiles (vs. 17-21).

Then in chapter twenty-three, Jesus actually stood next to Paul and gave him further instruction for his ministry (vs. 11). This was not a vision nor a dream, but an actual event. The visitations of Jesus were extremely important in Paul’s ministry. It’s also interesting that each time Jesus appeared to a New Testament believer, they were not shocked. It was expected.

These examples show clearly that Jesus appeared to New Testament Christians and carried on conversations that included instruction, warnings, and comfort.

God is not a respecter of persons. If Jesus appeared to and spoke to and gave guidance to New Testament Christians, then why wouldn’t He do the same for you? After all, you are a New Testament Christian too.

As Christians, our theology should be based on the truths given to us in God’s Holy Word, the Bible. The Bible clearly tells us that faith is important (Hebrews 11:6) and that without faith mixed in our hearts the Word does not work in our lives (Hebrews 4:2). Our very salvation exists only for those who believe and have faith in God’s promise of eternal life (Ephesians 2:8). The Bible tells us that we prophecy and receive the Holy Spirit in proportion to our faith (Romans 12:6). If you do not believe that Jesus died for your sins so that you can have everlasting life, you will not have everlasting life. In order to receive it, you must believe it. Every gift from God comes by faith.

So today, I propose this. We as Christians should raise our level of belief to include every good gift that God has for us. If New Testament Christians were healed, you can be healed. If New Testament Christians were delivered from oppression, you can be delivered from oppression. If Jesus appeared to New Testament Christians, Jesus can appear to
you.

Now, don’t take me wrong. I am not suggesting that we spend our time begging Jesus to appear to us. But what I am saying is this. We must not allow the traditions of man to impede the manifestations of God.

Remember, we receive in proportion to our faith.

Scripture for the Day – January 10, 2020

Great peace have they who love your [word], and nothing can make them stumble. (Psalm 119:165, NIV)

One of the last things Jesus told His disciples before leaving this world was, “In this [life], you will have trouble!” (John 16:33, NIV). And He was right, wasn’t He? We all experience stress, occupational demands, deadlines, expectations and personal pressures ganging up on us and constantly trying to rob us of the peace we desperately desire. No one is immune to stress, frustration, and the feeling that we’re on the “autobahn of life.” What is all this but the absence of peace? And the answer can’t be found in a pill, a possession, or a pleasure. All those things wear off or wear out.

The Bible talks about three different kinds of peace. Let’s look at them:

(1) Peace with others. As far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone (Romans 12:18, NIV). This is external peace, and it’s necessary for human relationships to flourish. Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them. (Psalm 119:165)
(2) Peace with yourself. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts (Col 3:15 NIV). This is internal peace, a rest of mind and soul that escapes most of us. Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. (Matthew 11:28-30)
(3) Peace with God. Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 5:1, NIV). This is eternal peace, and it comes from knowing you have a right relationship with God. The Lord will give strength unto his people; the Lord will bless his people with peace. (Psalm 29:11)

So here’s how it works: When you’re at peace with God you’ll be at peace with yourself, and when you’re at peace with yourself you’ll be at peace with others. That, in a nutshell, is the “Peace” process!

Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you. (Philippians 4:9)

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:7)
