THE LORD OF PEACE
"Now may the Lord
peace Himself give you peace
always in every
way. The Lord be with you all" (II Thess. 3:16).
Our Heavenly Father wanted sons in a love relationship and fellowship with Himself. Our Father chose us to be in Christ before the foundation of the world (Eph. 1:4). The Lord Jesus Christ came in flesh and with His shed blood and crucified body paid 100% for our sins and salvation to and with our Heavenly Father (Col. 1:20-22). Our Father was 100% satisfied with Jesus' sacrificial offering and raised Him from the dead and set Him with all authority over all things in heaven and earth (Eph. 1:20-23). This is the free justification by our Father's "grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus" (Rom. 3:24). Through our Father's grace, we have been granted access through our Lord Jesus Christ (Eph. 2:18). Christ and His 100% grace is the root source of genuine peace. Christ is the connecting link and our union with our Heavenly Father. Through our Spirit birthing and salvation through faith in Christ, we now have access in His grace and peace to and with the Father (Eph. 2:14-15).
Paul declares that, "The Lord is faithful, who will establish you and guard you from the evil one" (II Thess. 3:3). The revelation knowledge of His grace will produce His peace in us. His peace will guard our hearts and minds from the evil one. This is why Paul shares, "and the peace of God which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus" (Phil. 4:7). Christ is the Lord of Peace!V
