Who Can Stop The War On Earth?
Micah 4:3 Tells Us;
“He (The Messiah) will judge between many peoples
and will settle disputes for strong nations far and wide.
They will beat their swords into plowshares
and their spears into pruning hooks.
Nation will not take up sword against nation,
nor will they train for war anymore.”
During the Reign of the Messiah, Jesus Christ for 1,000 years on earth, there will be no more war. There will still be conflicts between nations and individuals, but they will be justly and decisively resolved by the Messiah and those who reign with Him.
It isn’t the Reign of the Messiah itself that will change the heart of man. Citizens of earth will still need to trust in Jesus and His Work on their behalf for their personal salvation during the millennium. But war and armed conflict will not be tolerated.
It is important to see that this is not the peace of capitulation. This is the peace of enforced righteousness. There is no more war, and no more need for swords - so why not make them into plowshares? There is no more war because there is a new Ruler on earth, Jesus Christ.
Psalm 2:9 tells us what the Messiah will do to the disobedient in that day:
“You shall break them with a rod of iron; You shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.”
We long for the day when there is no more need for a military budget, when the money that goes for weapons and armies can go to schools and parks. But we are only safe doing that when the Messiah reigns among us!
Amen. Come, Lord Jesus, Prince of Peace!
