The Covenant of Peace

In the Holy Scriptures we read if “we search for Him, He will be found!” There is so much information as we research the subject of Peace. The Old Testament records there is a “Covenant of Peace!”  This you will note in the above Scriptures.  It is an Everlasting Covenant, which means it never terminates! With this Covenant of Peace comes a Promise.  God will place us in His Sanctuary!  That takes some research to see the full meaning of Him placing us in His Sanctuary! It is the Millennial Sanctuary which Ezekiel saw in a vision [Ch. 40-48]. Only Christ can restore the Peace of God to the hearts of His People. The world cannot know His Peace nor understand it. But He has given it to those who believe in the Salvation of Eternal Life! It is interesting to note in Scripture where His Peace enters into our lives. [1] He will keep us in perfect Peace if our mind is stayed on Him. ~Isa.2-4 [2] When we are in “right standing” with Him; for Righteousness shall be Peace which breeds a Peaceful Habitation. ~Isa.32:16-18 [3] I create the fruit of the lips; Peace! ~Isa. 57:19-21 [4] Because of His Mercy, the Covenant is Everlasting! Isa. 54:10 [5] Jesus is a King, a Priest, and a Counsel of Peace. ~ Zech. 6:12-13 [6] He commands us to execute Truth and Peace in our gates! ~ Zech 8:16 [7] And this Covenant is for us the Gentiles! ~ Heb. 13:20-21. What a God we serve, What a Saviour we have; As saints of the Soon Coming King; We give Him Praise and glorious adoration – as we celebrate His Birth, and greater yet as we rejoice over His Coming Again in Rapture!  We hear the Word from the Book of Revelation: “Surely I come quickly. Amen! Even so, come, Lord Jesus. The Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.  Loving you, Pastor
