I am for Peace – They Are for War


Jesus says that He is for peace, still when He speaks, they are for war. What does this mean?

In Psalm 120 it says

7 I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.

I am for Peace - They Are for WarIn the verse before it, it said “my soul has long dwelled with him that hated peace.” So where does this fit in the scheme of scripture. What is this very verse saying to us?

Jesus said, “I and my Father are one,” and before you know it, the Jews took up stones AGAIN to stone him (St. John 10:30-31). He peacefully told them the truth, yet they resorted to violence.

Again, Jesus told the Jews, Abraham rejoiced to see His day. They then proclaimed Jesus wasn’t even fifty years of age, Jesus gave them the truth. Jesus said, “of truth I tell you, before Abraham was, I am.”

Here came the stones again, but Jesus had to scram to keep for getting stoned. Getting stoned in those days would be like people pulling out knives or guns today!

I am for Peace – They Are for War

The truth of the matter is that Jesus was on a peaceful mission. He has been sending His prophets peacefully throughout the generations, so finally Jesus is going to stop the ambassadorship and give His enemies what they truly want … war!

Psalm 69:4

They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of mine head

I’m not sure, but people have this problem with Jesus and they need to fix it, because even the slowest to anger still gets angered … and we are like God … we may not care too much that you offend us, but we certainly don’t like when you offend our children or brothers and sisters.

I am for peace, but when I speak/write God’s Words … they are for war.
