They will hammer their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will no longer fight against nation, nor train for war anymore. —Micah 4:3
What a joy this will be when nations do not have militaries that train for war anymore. This is the hope of the world. Many people talk about being able to have peace on this planet and no war. But, it will not happen until the Lord God Almighty brings it to pass. Sinful man will never have peace until it is brought in by the Prince of Peace.
The terrible destruction that one nation can bring on another nation today is utterly unthinkable. Tens of thousands of people died in the immediate explosion when the first atomic bomb was used on Hiroshima. Tens of thousands more would die later of radiation exposure. That was August 6, 1945. The nuclear bombs that nations have today would bring utter destruction if used in a nuclear war. http://www.history.com/topics/world-war-ii/bombing-of-hiroshima-and-nagasaki Oh that the Prince of Peace would return soon. Even so come Lord Jesus!
Dear Father, I long for the time when there will be absolute peace and safety. Oh, that the coming of Your Son would be soon. May I be faithful until He comes or I die and go to be with Him. May this be so in the authority of Jesus and by Your Holy Spirit’s power.
