There’s a word for everything these days. Did you know that the dot on top of the ‘i’ and ‘j’ is called a tittle? No? Yes? Some people do, some don’t. But think about this. Do you think there is a word that now has no correct meaning? Think about it carefully because maybe, just maybe, there is.
What about the word ‘peace’? Simple enough, right? Of course there is a meaning to peace. Peace means “freedom from disturbance”. Okay. So if you’re lying on your couch at home, not disturbed by your family, friends, neighbours, but just lying quietly; that is peace?
Well then, what about this definition? “A state or period in which there is no war or war has ended.” Now this, this is what you need to think about. When has there ever been no war? When has there never been any jealousy or envy? When has there never been any lies? Ask yourself. From the time when the devil fooled Eve into eating the forbidden fruit until now, there has always been a war going on. It is natural instinct now because of sin.
Now look back until when you were born and remember all your experiences. It is guaranteed that you at one point felt jealous, envious or angry, because everyone does. Every second of every minute of every hour of every day you are thinking about certain things that either make you stressed, annoyed, uncomfortable or happy, glad, excited. You are never left alone by your thoughts, you are left alone with your thoughts, and this means you are never left without disturbance.
1st meaning = gone.
Now look into history, of not only yourself, but also the people around you and the world. Think back as for as when the devil went against God. Ever since then there has been no time in which a war has not been going on. You may think: “What about World War 1 and 2? The stopped,” but think also about the war going on between God and the devil, that has not stopped since the day the devil betrayed God. And now look at it this way, there are always going to be tensions rising and falling between empires, leaders and normal citizens, because that is sin working in us. Sin is not only in humans though, it is in animals as well.
These facts also prove that: the word ‘peace’ no longer has a correct meaning.
