Verse of the day:
The Lord will mediate between peoples and will settle disputes between strong nations far away. They will hammer their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will no longer fight against nation, nor train for war anymore. Everyone will live in peace and prosperity (Micah 4:3-4)
In these dark days where we never know when the next bomb is going detonate, these prophecies from Micah chapter 4 are just the best! Nations no longer flexing and barking threats, individuals ceasing from wringing each other’s necks, the fear of terror absolutely distilled. Can this ever truly happen? Or is it a beautiful utopian fantasy of false hope?
While day after day it seems as if verses like these are of some unseen distant Earth 2, it’s real! It’s coming friends! One day, and one day soon, armies will train for war no more! Can you imagine a world like this? Where our children aren’t put into positions of danger to preserve our freedoms and the those of the world? Where the political debates are no longer about how to handle the world conflicts?
