Peace, Peace, When There Is No Peace

Jim HutchensBy Jim Hutchens

Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said: “Iran and Syria have a joint mission to create a new world order on the basis of justice, humanity and belief in God. … At the current juncture, the role of Iran and Syria is historic and therefore bilateral cooperation should be increased. The resistance of nations including Iran and Syria has caused a deadlock in policies of Arrogant Systems in economic, political and military sections. The enemies' plots will harm themselves."

God says: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay. In due time their fort will slip; their day of disaster is near and their doom rushes upon them. … See now that I myself am He! There is no god besides me, I have wounded and I will heal, and no one can deliver from my hand. I lift my hand to heaven and declare; As surely as I live forever, when I sharpen my flashing sword and my hand grasps it in judgment, I will take vengeance on my adversaries and repay those who hate me. I will make my arrows drunk with blood, while my sword devours flesh: The blood of the slain and the captives, the heads of the enemy leaders.” (Deuteronomy 32:35, 39-41).

The Jerusalem Connections says: Peace in our time, apart from the coming of the Messiah, is an illusion at best. At worst it is a tragic miscalculation based on the erroneous notion of the goodness of man. God’s diagnosis of man is still valid today. “The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked; who can know it?” (Jeremiah 17:9). This condition of the heart is readily apparent to the prophet when he cries, “Peace, peace, they say, when there is no peace.” (Jeremiah 8:11). The best that can be hoped for is the containment and restraint of the Jihadists of the world be it Iran, Syria, Hamas, Hezbollah or Al Qaeda. This is doable. But the kind of peace George Mitchell and the Obama administration is advocating is a pipe dream. That will come only when Messiah comes and “rules them with an iron scepter and dashes them to pieces like pottery.” (Psalm 2:9). Even so, come quickly LORD Jesus.
