Peace is freedom; tranquillity, calmness or quietness.
People thought that He was going to end wars, establish law and order, and stop all violence, conflict and aggression of men. But in his own words Jesus said, "I came to send fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled!" Luke 12:49.
The world rejected him and those coming to him the world will also reject, but would be appointed and "built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ" 1 Peter 2:4-5. By rejecting Him the world rejected the will of God for themselves, "But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God." John 1:12-13.
We who believe, he has made us exceptional, but the others stumbled through unbelief, and kindled the wrath of God for themselves. "They stumble, being disobedient to the word, to which they also were appointed. But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light" 1 Peter 2:8-9.
He said, Do you suppose that I came to give peace on earth?
Jesus warned his disciples that, "It is impossible that no offenses should come, but woe to him through whom they do come! It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. Take heed to yourselves. If your brother sins against you, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him. And if he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times in a day returns to you, saying, 'I repent,' you shall forgive him."" Luke 17:1-4
I hear him say, Jerusalem,"If you had known, even you, especially in this your day, the things that make for your peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. For days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment around you, surround you and close you in on every side, and level you, and your children within you, to the ground; and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not know the time of your visitation." Luke 19:42-44.
It is impossible that someone will not attempt to attack, assault or act aggressively towards you.
But take heed to yourselves, that you forgive and keep on forgiving If your brother sins against you, and you rebuke him; and he repents, or return to you, saying, 'I repent,' you shall forgive him.
As He’s the Prince of peace, He gives the perfect peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, to guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
God bless you,
