How To Create Peace On Earth – Guaranteed!*

Why would Jesus bother teaching his message of love and peace if he didn’t expect his followers to obey his instructions?

What would happen to the evil in this world if EVERYONE suddenly decided to LOVE everyone else?

Alright, maybe not everyone will jump on the band wagon all at once, because unfortunately, there IS much evil in the world, and lots of people are very caught up in it… BUT how about if just everyone who CLAIMS to love God were to follow God’s commandments and LOVE his and her neighbor?

Many sources mention 2.1 billion Christians in the world (about one third of the total population of the planet)

But here’s the rub – are all of them really Christians? Are YOU? What exactly IS a Christian?

One answer is that a Christian is a follower of the teachings of the Messiah… (aka Jesus Christ, and the reason for the term CHRIST-ian) So, what exactly did He teach?

Jesus is famously well known for wrapping it all up in two simple commandments: Love God with all of your heart, and your neighbor as yourself.

Of course, He also elaborated on these things with statements about loving our enemies, and he admonished that if we hold a grudge and do not forgive, then God can not forgive US… But, all the rest of that would be a mute point if the two commandments of Love were followed!

Our Messiah also asked that we share the gospel with others. The Good News includes the miracle of Peace that will occur as more and more people begin treating each other with kindness and respect. (At least among those who love God!)

Just imagine what a PERFECT place the world would be if EVERYONE did his and her best to follow the teachings of the messiah…

Think what a LOVELY place that the world would be if only all of the people who CLAIM to be Christians followed the instructions that Christ taught…

Think what a BETTER place it will be even if only YOU AND I were to do our best to have a close relationship with God and love everyone else on the earth…

*Results will vary according to how many people will COMMIT to following the simple formula given by the Prince Of Peace.

Disclaimer: According to prophecy, however, it appears that the entire world will not be united until the Prince Of Peace is the ONLY ruler of this world, and that’s in God’s hands. In the meantime, we have only two simple rules to follow:

Mat 22:34  When the Pharisees heard that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, they met together in the same place.
Mat 22:35  One of them, an expert in the law, tested him by asking,
Mat 22:36  “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the law?”
Mat 22:37  Jesus said to him, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’
Mat 22:38  This is the greatest and most important commandment.
Mat 22:39  The second is like it: ‘You must love your neighbor as yourself.’
Mat 22:40  All the Law and the Prophets depend on these two commandments.”

Also:

Luk 6:27  “But I say to you who are listening: Love your enemies. Do good to those who hate you.
Luk 6:28  Bless those who curse you, and pray for those who insult you.
Luk 6:29  If someone strikes you on the cheek, offer him the other one as well, and if someone takes your coat, don’t keep back your shirt, either.
Luk 6:30  Keep on giving to everyone who asks you for something, and if anyone takes what is yours, do not insist on getting it back.
Luk 6:31  Whatever you want people to do for you, do the same for them.
Luk 6:32  “If you love those who love you, what thanks do you deserve? Why, even sinners love those who love them.
Luk 6:33  If you do good to those who do good to you, what thanks do you deserve? Even sinners do that.
Luk 6:34  If you lend to those from whom you expect to get something back, what thanks do you deserve? Even sinners lend to sinners to get back what they lend.
Luk 6:35  Rather, love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them, expecting nothing in return. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, for he is kind to ungrateful and evil people.
Luk 6:36  Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.”
Luk 6:37  “Stop judging, and you will never be judged. Stop condemning, and you will never be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
Luk 6:38  Give, and it will be given to you. A large quantity, pressed together, shaken down, and running over will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use, you will be measured.”
