Does it have to be war?

April 13, 2018 · Print This Article

It’s no surprise that world leaders are talking war once again.

Why do I say this? It’s because Jesus Christ said that there’d always be wars and rumours of wars. It’s part of our human condition.

But when will it all end? Does it have to be this way?

In the UK there are protests to say that the current call to arms is undemocratic. If only the people could be heard, then their collective will would prevent involvement in war.

According to the Bible, what will end war forever is not the will of the people, but the will of God. We’ll be fighting and ready to fight right up until the last moment, even as Jesus returns to stop the nonsense and to rescue us from ourselves. Jesus will come to usher in God’s eternal peace, and there’ll be no more war, but when? God only knows, said Jesus.

Christians everywhere are praying fervently for Christ’s return, and we can understand why.

In the meantime, let’s do whatever we can do for peace.
