Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore. —Micah 4:3

            The time is coming!  Imagine when there will be no more war!  No more conflict!  In this fallen world war has been learned.  How sad it is that the human race has developed weapons to destroy their fellow man?  From stones, spears, bows & arrows and catapults to— “The Metal Storm gun, on the other hand, makes the M134 look like a toy. The prototype gun system was rated at 16,000 rounds per second or 1,000,000 rounds per minute. The gun system was developed by an Australian weapons company by the same name. In 2007, Metal Storm Inc. started delivering its gun systems to the US Navy for surface ships. This video shows how the Metal Storm gun achieves its head spinning firing rate”  These weapons are staggeringly destructive and then there are the nuclear weapons…  Yes, mankind has learned warfare too well…

            I remember going into the military myself.  Guns were somewhat familiar to me since I had hunted in my teens.  But in the military the weapons were much more deadly that we had to learn how to use and that went beyond rifles.  The learning of the weapons and then actual “war games” helped learn tactical warfare.  Yes, warfare has been taught and warfare has been learned.  Man has been educated on how to eliminate his fellow man.  So, so sad…

            But there is hope!  There will come a time when warfare will not be learned anymore— never again!  The best is yet ahead for all of us who have called on Jesus and are living for Him.  And the best will last… forever.  Brother and sister this is our hope— We will be with Jesus forever in righteousness, peace and joy!  Hallelujah!  Keep your eyes fixed “on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith” as we “run with endurance the race set out for us” (Hebrews 12:1-2).  Finish well!  Then experience glory with Jesus and all who love Him!

Dear Father I am so glad that we are moving closer to the time when no conflict will ever occur again.  Until then may I faithfully run the race You have marked out for me.  Help me to keep my eyes fixed on Jesus by the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus.  So be it!
