Peace Activists?

Weapons of Peace?

Topic # 1   The Peace Oxymoron

The Gaza flotilla tragedy reeks of contradictions in every news report. Three critical facts were known before the ships sailed. 1. The “peace activists” proclaimed they would not resist when Israel would board their ships. 2. They had clear “war worship” in chants to “kill the Jews” and it is caught on video. 3. Israel announced multiple times that they would be happy to let the ships port at Ashdod a few miles up the coast and then truck the inspected supplies to Gaza.

However, the reality is that they were setting a trap for Israel. The whole world has dutifully condemned Israel, even in light of video clearly showing the “peaceful passengers” attacking the soldiers, beating them bloody before their leaders allowed them to defend themselves. It was not an “aid convoy”, it was a public relations trap, that worked. Much of the medicine and supplies were out of date and worthless. The world can no longer tell lies from truth. The Apostle Paul warned us of the strong delusion, that they should believe the lie in 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12. The great time of lies is now.

Here is the statement of one Muslim woman before sailing. “Right now we face one of two happy endings: either Martyrdom or reaching Gaza.” (Al-Jazeera TV, May 29, 2010)

Topic #2  Perfect Peace Is Shalom-Shalom!

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Isaiah 26:3 My good friend Doug Walton gave me a Hebrew lesson last week. He discovered something I never knew in 40 years of ministry. The Hebrew text for “perfect peace” is simply the word “shalom” twice. When we keep our mind focused on Yahweh, we have shalom shalom: completeness (in number), safety, soundness (in body), welfare, health, prosperity, peace, quiet, tranquility, contentment, peace, and friendship with man and with God, especially in covenant relationship.

The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12
