13And they reported to the angel of the Lord who was standing among the myrtle trees, “We have gone throughout the earth and found the whole world at rest and in peace.” (Zechariah 1:13)
Happy Monday friends! This verse above is a hopeful reminder that maybe one day, the world will be at rest and at peace. But I fear that day will not come until Jesus returns to earth. The world is once again on the verge of catastrophic war. Russia is mounting enormous amounts of soldiers and equipment along Ukraine’s border. If this is anything other than a bluff, the results will be devastating. If you have not been following what is happening on the other side of the world, you need to. Of all the emerging conflicts, if the Russia-Ukraine crisis turns into an invasion of Ukraine’s sovereign soil, NATO will respond, which would draw the US right back into war, and this time with a peer-to-peer adversary.
It is a shame that the world is not at peace and at rest. We have had over 2,000 years to learn and grow from the truth that Jesus brought us. If only the world had a common sense guide to helping people learn the truth contained within the Holy Bible…
