GOD's LAW on PEACE

2 Chronicles 15:5-6

King James Version

5 And in those times there was no peace 

to him that went out, 

nor to him that came in, 

but great vexations were upon 

all the inhabitants of the countries.

6 And nation was destroyed of nation, 

and city of city: 

for God did vex them with all adversity.


How can nations have peace?

Why is there so much trouble?

You will find from these verses the reasons why.

And you will marvel that the solution had been there.

All along.

Nations can have peace.

Anytime GOD deems it.

Anytime we turn back to the LORD.

The Bible says so:

Deuteronomy 4:30-31

King James Version

30 When thou art in tribulation, 

and all these things are come upon thee, 

even in the latter days, 

if thou turn to the Lord thy God, 

and shalt be obedient unto his voice;

31 (For the Lord thy God is a merciful God;) 

he will not forsake thee, 

neither destroy thee, 

nor forget the covenant of thy fathers 

which he sware unto them.


Deuteronomy 30:1-3

King James Version

30 And it shall come to pass, 

when all these things are come upon thee, 

the blessing and the curse, 

which I have set before thee, 

and thou shalt call them to mind 

among all the nations, 

whither the Lord thy God hath driven thee,

2 And shalt return unto the Lord thy God, 

and shalt obey his voice 

according to all that I command thee this day, 

thou and thy children, 

with all thine heart, 

and with all thy soul;

3 That then the Lord thy God will turn thy captivity, 

and have compassion upon thee, 

and will return and gather thee from all the nations, 

whither the Lord thy God hath scattered thee.


1 Samuel 7:2-4

King James Version

2 And it came to pass, 

while the ark abode in Kirjathjearim, 

that the time was long; 

for it was twenty years: 

and all the house of Israel lamented after the Lord.

3 And Samuel spake unto all the house of Israel, 

saying, 

If ye do return unto the Lord with all your hearts, 

then put away the strange gods 

and Ashtaroth from among you, 

and prepare your hearts unto the Lord, 

and serve him only: 

and he will deliver you out of the hand of the Philistines.

4 Then the children of Israel did put away Baalim 

and Ashtaroth, 

and served the Lord only.


2 Chronicles 15:3-4

King James Version

3 Now for a long season 

Israel hath been without the true God, 

and without a teaching priest, 

and without law.

4 But when they in their trouble 

did turn unto the Lord God of Israel, 

and sought him, 

he was found of them.


Nehemiah 1:8-9

King James Version

8 Remember, I beseech thee, 

the word that thou commandedst thy servant Moses, 

saying, 

If ye transgress, 

I will scatter you abroad among the nations:

9 But if ye turn unto me,

and keep my commandments, 

and do them; 

though there were of you cast out 

unto the uttermost part of the heaven, 

yet will I gather them from thence, 

and will bring them unto the place 

that I have chosen to set my name there.


Job 22:23

King James Version

23 If thou return to the Almighty, 

thou shalt be built up, 

thou shalt put away iniquity 

far from thy tabernacles.


Isaiah 10:20-23

King James Version

20 And it shall come to pass in that day, 

that the remnant of Israel, 

and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob, 

shall no more again stay upon him that smote them; 

but shall stay upon the Lord, 

the Holy One of Israel, 

in truth.

21 The remnant shall return,

 even the remnant of Jacob, 

unto the mighty God.

22 For though thy people Israel 

be as the sand of the sea, 

yet a remnant of them shall return: 

the consumption decreed 

shall overflow with righteousness.

23 For the Lord God of hosts shall make a consumption, 

even determined, 

in the midst of all the land.


Isaiah 19:22-25

King James Version

22 And the Lord shall smite Egypt: 

he shall smite and heal it: 

and they shall return even to the Lord, 

and he shall be intreated of them, 

and shall heal them.

23 In that day shall there be a highway 

out of Egypt to Assyria, 

and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, 

and the Egyptian into Assyria, 

and the Egyptians shall serve with the Assyrians.

24 In that day shall Israel be the third 

with Egypt and with Assyria, 

even a blessing in the midst of the land:

25 Whom the Lord of hosts shall bless, 

saying, 

Blessed be Egypt my people, 

and Assyria the work of my hands, 

and Israel mine inheritance.


Isaiah 31:6

King James Version

6 Turn ye unto him 

from whom the children of Israel 

have deeply revolted.


Isaiah 55:6-7

King James Version

6 Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, 

call ye upon him while he is near:

7 Let the wicked forsake his way, 

and the unrighteous man his thoughts: 

and let him return unto the Lord, 

and he will have mercy upon him; 

and to our God, 

for he will abundantly pardon.


Isaiah 59:18-20

King James Version

18 According to their deeds, 

accordingly he will repay, 

fury to his adversaries, 

recompence to his enemies; 

to the islands he will repay recompence.

19 So shall they fear the name of the Lord 

from the west, 

and his glory from the rising of the sun. 

When the enemy shall come in like a flood, 

the Spirit of the Lord 

shall lift up a standard against him.

20 And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, 

and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, 

saith the Lord.


Jeremiah 3:11-13

King James Version

11 And the Lord said unto me, 

The backsliding Israel hath justified herself 

more than treacherous Judah.

12 Go and proclaim these words toward the north, 

and say, 

Return, thou backsliding Israel, 

saith the Lord; 

and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: 

for I am merciful, 

saith the Lord, 

and I will not keep anger for ever.

13 Only acknowledge thine iniquity, 

that thou hast transgressed against the Lord thy God, 

and hast scattered thy ways to the strangers 

under every green tree, 

and ye have not obeyed my voice, 

saith the Lord.


Jeremiah 3:14-15

King James Version

14 Turn, 

O backsliding children, 

saith the Lord; 

for I am married unto you: 

and I will take you one of a city, 

and two of a family, 

and I will bring you to Zion:

15 And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, 

which shall feed you 

with knowledge and understanding.


Jeremiah 3:22

King James Version

22 Return, 

ye backsliding children, 

and I will heal your backslidings. 

Behold, 

we come unto thee; 

for thou art the Lord our God.


Jeremiah 4:1

King James Version

4 If thou wilt return, O Israel, 

saith the Lord, 

return unto me: 

and if thou wilt put away thine abominations 

out of my sight, 

then shalt thou not remove.


Jeremiah 15:19-21

King James Version

19 Therefore thus saith the Lord, 

If thou return, 

then will I bring thee again, 

and thou shalt stand before me: 

and if thou take forth the precious from the vile, 

thou shalt be as my mouth: 

let them return unto thee; 

but return not thou unto them.

20 And I will make thee unto this people

a fenced brasen wall: 

and they shall fight against thee, 

but they shall not prevail against thee: 

for I am with thee to save thee and to deliver thee, 

saith the Lord.

21 And I will deliver thee out of the hand of the wicked, 

and I will redeem thee out of the hand of the terrible.

that I am the Lord: 

and they shall be my people, 

and I will be their God: 

for they shall return unto me 

with their whole heart.

O house of Israel, 

every one according to his ways, 

saith the Lord God. 

Repent, 

and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; 

so iniquity shall not be your ruin.

31 Cast away from you all your transgressions, 

whereby ye have transgressed; 

and make you a new heart and a new spirit: 

for why will ye die, O house of Israel?

32 For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth,

 saith the Lord God: 

wherefore turn yourselves, 

and live ye.


Ezekiel 33:11

11 Say unto them, 

As I live, saith the Lord God, 

I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; 

but that the wicked turn from his way and live: 

turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; 

for why will ye die, O house of Israel?

so will we render the calves of our lips.

saith the Lord.

Sirs, what must I do to be saved?

Man is a fool, thinking he can have peace without GOD.

How he has set aside GOD so!

GOD is peace.

Peace is GOD.

ALL come from GOD.

EVERYTHING belongs to GOD.

He has power over everything.

The prophets knew it.

For GOD spoke through them.

And how man tried to stifle that clean, clear, powerful voice.

Thus, the world is the way it is.

If you want peace now, then turn to GOD now.
