Thought For The Week
by Rev.Clennon Saulsberry | December 16, 2016
World Concord"And they shall beat their swords into plowshares,and their spears into pruninghooks: Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more Isa. 2:4
Oh, that these happy times were come! At present the nations are heavily armed, and are inventing weapons more and more terrible, as if the chief end of man could only be answered by destroying myriads of his fellows. Yet peace will prevail one day; yes, and so previl that the instruments of destruction shall be beaten into other shapes and used bor better purposes.
How will this come about? By trade? By civilization? By arbitration? We do not believe it. Past experience forbids our trusting to means so feeble. Peace will be established only by the reign of the prince of peace. He must teach the people by His spirit, renew their hears by His grace, and reign over them by His supreme power, and then will they cease to wound and kill.
