Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
"Our Commander IS our Peace"
"When his offering is a sacrifice of a peace offering, if he offers it of the herd, whether male or female, he shall offer it without blemish before the LORD."
"Peace," is on the menu for Breakfast this morning; Our Commander IS our Peace.
He offered Himself, (Heb.10:10), as Son of Man, from among the 'herd' of Humanity, (Heb.2:14-18), Perfect and Without Blemish, Before the eyes of Father God.
The Peace Offering was made many times under the Law of Moses, because the blood of animals was insufficient (Heb.10:4), and was only a 'shadow' of the Spotless Blood of Jesus that was ahead.
Our Commander Jesus IS our Peace, Who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation ..... so as to 'create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace,' (Eph.2:14-18).
He is Yahweh Shalom! God of Peace.
The Hebrew word for Peace used in (Isa.9:6) means the 'appearance of calm and tranquility of men and nations.'
The Greek word for Peace that Paul used to the Ephesians in (Eph.2:14) means 'the spiritual harmony brought about by an individual's restoration with God.' This is the objective of the New Testament church.
Because we have been restored to oneness with God, through our Commander Jesus - we appear 'calm and peaceful' in the chaos and uncertainties of life (a peace that makes no sense to the world we live in) Phil.4:6. And we also are secure in our 'spiritual harmony brought about by our restoration with God,' this is 'the Reason for the Hope that lies within us, that we give to those who ask us to explain our Peacefulness,' (1Pet.3:15).
Our Commander Jesus IS our Peace, Unchanging, through every season of life! Oooh Rah!
Listen up Warrior! Keep your eyes and your heart upon your Commander! There will always be a storm and a battle to fight, our Commander promised this to us (John 16:33). But in the same verse and sentence He also Commands us to Rejoice because He has Overcome the world's storms and battles. He has conquered this corona virus and any other virus or disease on the Cross, once and for all with His precious blood. I'm not suggesting that we ignore the chaos of lost jobs, and suffering of illness and death surrounding us. No, we pray for them and put feet to our prayers by helping in any way we are able to. We are God's Warriors, the Living walking among the dead. Wherever we walk our Commander walks too. When I walk past people and homes I spread prayers of healing over them and their houses. You can make your walk a "prayer walk," and touch the world around you with The Prince of Peace!
Our Commander IS our Peace and He IS the ONLY Source for the World's Peace. Onward! My fellow Warrior! March on with your Commander, your Peace!
Warrior at your side,
