But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,The word Peace appears in the Holy Bible 353 times, but Peace was with Adam & Eve in the Garden of Eden & they had no worries, they didn’t even know they were naked, they were at Peace;
But the Peace Adam & Eve had left when they disobeyed the Lord & the world became a place or worry. The animals were different now, some became predators & the others were prey, the prey had to worry & watch out or else they would be the predator’s meal. The Peace & harmony that existed in the first family didn’t last long after the chaos of sin, when the Lord accepted Abel worship & rejected his brother Cain’s worship, Cain had no peace in his heart. Cain thought he would have Peace, if he killed his brother, but his disobedience to God gave him more to worry about.
Genesis 4:12 When you cultivate the ground, it will no longer yield its strength to you; you will be a vagrant and a wanderer on the earth.”13 Cain said to the Lord, “My punishment is too great to bear! 14 Behold, You have driven me this day from the face of the ground; and from Your face I will be hidden, and I will be a vagrant and a wanderer on the earth, and whoever finds me will kill me.”
The Fruit of the Spirit of Peace comes from obeying God’s Word & worry comes from doing the opposite, Adam, Eve & their first born son Cain, learn that the hard way. We are no different, a world of Peace doesn’t exist, even if the people of the world seek it desperately. Throughout history there has always been war or conflict between nations & countries, it’s just no soldiers who suffer in battle, but also innocent bystanders, collateral damage it is called during war time. People protest wartime & ask for peace, but it truly exist in mind of the followers of the Prince of Peace Jesus;
The Holy Bible tells us those who read & study it that the Lord is the source of Peace & apart from the Prince of Peace Jesus, is chaos. That is why you & I can see non-believers, atheist or agnostic, have worry & concern, then they ask Christians, where is the God you believe in. I tell them, He is in my heart & I am at perfect Peace, cause I know God is incontrol, let His will be done. Those are the words our Lord & Savior said the night He knew He would be betrayed by a friend, arrested & dragged away, then be mocked at & punched in the face, the hair of His beard pulled out, flogged & nailed to a cross & suffer in horrible pain for hours. The Holy Bible tells you & me, that God the Father will give Peace to those who reconcile with what Jesus did and those who truly accept Him. Are you yourself today, are you reconciled in Christ, if so, you will receive Peace, which is a fruit of the Holy Spirit of God. God bless you all, the Lord loves you & so do I. Amen! Sam H.
John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.28 You heard that I said to you, ‘I go away, and I will come to you.’ If you loved Me, you would have rejoiced because I go to the Father, for the Father is greater than I.
