Peace, Peace, when there is no peace

After yesterday’s stunning announcement that our own dear President has won the nobel peace prize, can we really be all that suprised?  With  Al Gore, Yasser Arafat and anti-semite Jimmy Carter as winning predecessors, did we really think that this year, they might actually give the prize to someone who truly deserved it?   Its a strange, but, shrewd group that bunch in Oslo.  Think about it.  Can the new Nobel Peace Prize Winner really muster what its going to take to win the war in Afghanistan or take the hard stance that is needed against Iran right now?  Isn’t that an oxymoron? Peace/War,  Peace/War.   This simple selection by our northern friends, may do more to change the face of world politics than any other single event!

The Bible says that the end of days will come when people are saying “peace, peace, when there is no peace. (Jeremiah 8:10-12)  With the middle east  ready to go up in flames at any moment, all talk and rhetoric about peace is  just that, talk and rhetoric.   Unless the current powers that be change from the course they are on, (seeking to divide the land) any peace achieved in the middle east will be short lived and the world will find itself not only in deep trouble in the middle east, but, on a collision course with God!  The book of Exodus tells us about one such confrontation.  The God of the Israelities vs Pharoah, (self proclaimed God of the Egyptians).  The Pharoah back them then didn’t fare too well and the new Pharoah, the new King Tut of the world, won’t either.

The timing of the award strikes me as significant and ties in with what I have already written in my last two postings, in regard to the Feast of Tabernacles.   Yesterday was the last day of the Feast of Tabernacles.  As I mentioned, it is the last and greatest day of this seven day Feast,  the same day that Yeshua (Jesus) stood up in the temple some 2,000 years ago and cried out to the people  of Israel to come to him for living water.  He called them to come, 1) because he has authority and 2)  because is the true Prince of Peace.   But, yesterday another was annointed,  a usurper who promises and pretends that he can (yes, we can) meet all our needs.   One who seeks to wear a crown of which he is not deserving and one who was  nominated for this prize less than two weeks into office, and was by the way, in consideration for the prize when the first letters went out last September!    When I read that, I got the same kind of icky feeling I got last year pre-election, when I heard slogans like:  “you will have an epiphany, (defined by my  on-line dictionary as: 1) a sudden, intuitive perception or insight  or 2) the manifestiation of a diety ) and you will vote for me.”

It appears that this years prize was given, not for what has been done, but, for what will be done.  It’s the “what will be done” that’s worrisome.

But, for those of us who do know Jesus, the true Prince of Peace, we have his assurance that He will never leave us nor forsake us.  So, take heart fellow believers, we are his prized possession, he gave his life for us and He is coming soon!  Now, that’s peace worth talking about!
