ACCURATE BIBLE KNOWLEDGE!
QUESTION: “WHAT DOES THE WORLD DESPERATELY WANT?”
ANSWER: “PEACE AND SAFETY”
There are two scriptures as follows:
For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. 1 Thessalonians 5:3
I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety. Psalm 4:8
The first one speaks of the desires of the world at the moment … everyone wants peace and safety in the world and for the world … and it will come after the rapture of Christians, but it will be temporary and false under the cruel rule and reign of (the) anti-christ.
The second verse tells that the Christian already has the peace and the safety he needs in Christ. Christians who have died simply sleep. Sleep in the Bible means death and the Christian is dead in Christ, as the following verses say …
For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 1 Thessalonians 4:15-16
AND HERE’S THE DIFFERENCE …
There’s TWO types of peace and safety … DOING and DONE.
In Christ, Christians are happy as ‘pigs in mud’ as their peace and safety is “DONE” with God’s approval as the scripture says
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. Luke 2:14 with God announcing to the world that peace is to found only in his Son Jesus Christ
But when ye go over Jordan, and dwell in the land which the LORD your God giveth you to inherit, and when he giveth you rest from all your enemies round about, so that ye dwell in safety; Deuteronomy 12:10
As the Old Testament saint was to dwell in safety in the actual physical land of Canaan, Christians rest in safety as they dwell in the actual spiritual land of Christ himself.
Regarding peace and safety, Christians are ‘DONE’.
Regarding peace and safety, the world is still ‘DOING’.
