1. HE IS OUR PEACE

Ephesians 2:14 Bro. RD Sunder Singh

Dear Brother/Sister in Jesus Christ,


Everywhere it is reported; there is no peace in every country, town, home,church and individuals. In the above circumstances the Holy Bible teaches SEEK PEACE! (Ps 34:14 and 1 Pet 3:11). From whom you can seek peace? Ps 29:11 declare you can seek peace from almighty God the owner of peace.Yes, our Lord Jesus Christ is the Lord of peace (Rom 15:33).Well, there are two kinds of peace available in the world. They are,

False peace
The Bible says in 1Thes 5:3 that for when they say, "peace and safety then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape," False peace and safety do not stand. Let us not seek the way of Hamaan and Goliath. Alass! Their destruction came suddenly.

Perfect peace
Seek the peace of God. That is the peace of Jesus Christ (Col 3:15). Jesus once said it is "My peace" (John 14:27). God spoke through Isiah it is perfect peace (Isiah 26:3). Let us deeply concentrate some mysteries regarding peace today. The word of God does not proceed out of His mouth not for no purpose. His word will work in your now and fill you with heavenly peace that the world can not give.

I. Peace in an individual
"Go in peace." - Luke 8:48
The Lord gives peace for an individual. A woman afflicted flow of blood for twelve years who had spent all her livelihood on physicians of no use found peace in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Yes, those who are afflicted by sickness do not have peace. Righteous Job says that he lost his sleep and wearisome nights are appointed to him (Job 7:3)
Then who else lack peace?
1. There is no peace for the wicked (Isiah 48:22)
2. There is no peace who does not love the Law of God (Ps 119:165)
3. They have no peace who worship the idol (Rev 14:11).
4. The Lord takes away the peace from whom they are living in sin (Ps 38:8, Ps 51:3)
So dear Brother, Sister what is the remedy? Let us now cling to His promise now.
Ps 29:11 says, The Lord will bless His people with peace. Yes, God will bless HIS PEOPLE with peace. Forsake wickedness, Forsake idolatry Love His Law. Flee from sin. And be His child. Then automatically the peace of God will take charge of you.
The King cast Daniel into the den of lions. Daniel had a pleasant peaceful sleep though he was at the jaw of death. But the scripture says in Dan 6:18…..The King’s sleep went from him. Yes, any man who raises against the child of God, the Lord will first takes away his peace.
Fear not, Jesus Christ will both lay you down in peace and sleep (Ps 4:8)
A couple of months before when I was proceeding to a crusade with my wife, a descent lady by name Mrs. Laila came running towards me and lamented thus. "My husband Dr: Stanley by profession a medical doctor in abroad was kidnapped and kept in a dungeon cell cutting away any communication with outside world, charging him false case. No guarantee of life, at any time he will be killed. All the doors I knocked in India did not open. She cried and cried. Brother, please pray to Jesus and bring back my husband with life"
The same agony of that sister filled me and I cried to my God and replied her, "Go in peace, I see your husband is released". Within hours Dr. Stanley reached home safely by the Power of Jesus! Praise the Lord!

II. Peace in your Church
1 Cor 6:6 "But brother goes to law against brother, and that before unbeliever"
Here "brother" is meant for a believer. There is no absolute peace within the walls of church.
As per 1 Cor 3:3,4, it is because of strife among believers. Paul laments that the believers are still carnal and there are divisions among them.
The Lord took me to Kuwait during February/March 2000. I was to preach at 3AM on March 1 2000 for Sri Lanka congregation. (During this time there was tough war between Tamils and Sri Lankans in Sri Lanka) Pastor Robert welcomed me to the Pulpit. I was astonished to see both Tamils and Sri Lankans worshipped Jesus without any difference. Praise God! It’s Jesus who united them.
I shout with Paul that we all "speak the same thing." (1 Cor 1:10). Then way should we have difference among us? Samaritans and Jews never join hands. But in Luke 17, ten leprous men forgetting their difference shouted in one mindedness for healing. This should again happen in our churches.
I had been to a crusade recently in a C.S.I church in Trivandrum district. There was no choir in the church for the past thirty years due to infighting. My first day message shook the entire congregation and convicted the old choir team. They came together to sing for the glory of God the very next day after thirty years. Who did this? It is Jesus who prayed "they may all be one" (Jn 17:21)

III. Peace with God
Job 22:21 "with Him, be at peace" Yes, the Bible declares, to have peace with God. What brought enmity with God?
Firstly, it is our sin, which makes enmity with God. Isiah 59:2 says. "but your iniquities have separated you from your God."
Thank you God we have victory over sins through the conquiring blood of Jesus Christ.
For he made Jesus who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. (2 Cor 5:21)
Secondly it is the devil which separates us from God. The Bible teaches us to resist the devil and it will flee from you. The Lord Jesus Christ gives every child of God power and authority over devils (Lk 9:1) and God empowers us to put the devil under our feet (Rom 16:20)

IV. Peace in Family
Gen 18:19 - "for I have known him, in order that he may command his children and his house hold after him, that they keep the way of the Lord, to do righteousness and justice, that the Lord may bring to Abraham what He has spoken to him"
Yes, Abraham‘s family was a peace loving family.
Infighting among brothers, diverse cases between husband and his wife have became plenty in today’s society. What is the reason?
The Bible says,
"Because for a piece of bread a man will transgress" (Prov 28:21)
I remember an incident. A father passed away after giving away two adjoin plots to his sons. After father’s death, a dispute arose among brothers that the wall standing in between the plot belongs to whom? The case went to court. They sold the plots to meet the expense of the case. By the time the judgement was pronounced, the plots were in somebody’s possession.
It is shameful that there is no peace in Christian families too. There are many reasons.
Recently I was sharing word of God in another Country. The church belongs to children of God of Muslim background.
In the midst of sermon God showed me a little boy and proclaimed thus "I see through the power of Holy Sprit that a family with no peace is here due to terrible sickness of a little child. In the name of Jesus the child is healed right now and the family is restored with peace"
It happened right then, Lord Jesus Christ, took away blood cancer from Sulaiman Salamat and God’s name was glorified. Praise God
One Monian with her wife Shyamala for the first time attended the fasting prayer in Prayer Gardens on 10th April 1999. They went and knocked every door for the past fifteen years for a child.
Loosing their mental peace they jointly cried unto God during healing prayers. Then the Holy Spirit spoke through me "Shyamala, you are deeply worried for a child. The Lord of miracles blesses your womb right now". From that month Shyamala, wife of Monian conceived and in due time she gave birth to a female child. Praise God!
Afflicted by such problems you may be visiting this web site. Fear not, we have a super natural God Jesus Christ.
Yes, "HE (JESUS CHRIST) HIMSELF is our peace"
If you want us to pray for you, send us your request we will pray for you.
May god bless you!
Yours in Him,
Bro. RD Sunder Singh.
