God just gave me the understanding of a true “Peacemaker.” So many people are blind to a “Peaceful Person/Meek” versus “Peace Maker.” Most people will stand in the corner and say I am keeping peace by keeping silent. God is clear to not always be silent and stand up for what he calls “righteous judgement”. If you see an unfair situation with a helpless child or animal, do we keep silent or stand up for what’s right to bring out long-term peace? The children are learning and growing, and do you think the Kingdom of God will have bullying a child or aggressive children? Yet, we breed them daily. God has opened my eyes to this being satans goal to steal their innocence. We should be trusting/praying to God with his OWN children more and being the teacher he allowed us to be over them. He gave this example by sitting with the children to teach them (Matthew 18:2). TRAIN a child in the way he should go, means TRAIN, not bully or abuse but raise them up to know God’s ways (Proverbs 22:6). Jesus was clear to be an example in all situations. This is also true for training children. This is the secret “TRAIN.” Have a sit down session with your kids and teach his ways. Only if we turn against God, does he change the scene with chastisement and most of the time these children just have lack of understanding and get tossed and turned in the midst of our busy lives. Most of God’s instructions are for adult children, because we are all his children and we should know better if we are seeking to grow deeper knowledge like he wants. Do you think the kingdom of God will have hitting animals? These are his also. If you don’t know how to train an animal without anger or a child, take them to someone who does know how. Give them a chance to learn love gently. Jesus said he is gentle: “I am gentle and humble in heart” (Matthew 11:29). Do we really create gentle kids or animals if we are not gentle too? Most people just want control and that is the source of the problem also. Let God be God and be an example like Jesus said: For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you John 13:15. He is our true example to follow.
Peace is created by standing up for what’s right for others who can’t. Jesus turned over tables to create long term peace for God in his holy temple. He stood over the prostitute about to be stoned to death to keep long-term peace from other people having to die from sins because we all sin. True love stands up against the devil for the innocent and that is like Jesus. A peace maker…makes peace by standing up for truth. A peacemaker has to endure many trials to bring about peace in the world. We do not keep silent always. We stand up for what is right in the world and God’s word that he leads us to understand to help grow the kingdom in love. That is a peacemaker. God say’s do not keep silent, but stand for truth no matter who turns against you(ACTS 18:9). Sometimes, God ask us (his sons and daughters) to speak as an advocate and that is when we do not remain silent. If someone is attacking you personally, then God may say “turn the other cheek.” It’s learning to be stronger in the spirit so you can know when to speak and when not. Righteous Judgement is put in scripture for a reason, to protect the acts of satan against innocent or errors. . Even if you have to stand up against people you love, do what is right and God will reward you for this and call you a true “son or daughter for the kingdom.” Even Jesus asked his mother why she was searching for him because he was doing work for his fathers kingdom (Luke 2:49). He was pointing out that she did not see with her spiritual eyes and did not understand. We should keep our eyes on the things above and the spiritual side of things and our world will be more the way he desires.
