ARE YOU A PEACEMAKER?

   Blessed Are the Peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of the Eternal Creator. In order to be a peacemaker, you first have to be at peace in your spirit, and this being a fruit of the Holy Spirit must be attained through the receiving of the same. This fruit must be internalized; through this process, it will then flow out through you to everyone around you. Only then will you find peace with every human being that you come into contact. It will also take all the other eight fruits to really achieve this. When you find you are achieving this proclivity of peace you will find you are blessed indeed. These will be found enumerated many times throughout this book: for these are the fruits of righteousness; the full character of The Eternal Creator or The Fruits Of The Spirit. Here is how we teach His principle of turning the other cheek by example, and it must be actualized. This is more so than in any of the other beatitudes. This is where tolerance must become the norm we have to be willing to judge ourselves and only ourselves. Remember we cannot change one iota, any bit, or speck for that matter in the life of anyone else. We must be a man of peace, we must be a man who will not and cannot revenge himself. Peace first comes in as an attitude of mind; we must be a human being that seeks only peace and pursue it. Being a peacemaker is more than being a conscientious objector, this attitude is the beginning of being a peacemaker, but it must be a sincere heartfelt belief, and not just be a flash in the pan to impress your peers. There is no room in His plan for half-hearted belief. In His Word, He talks about just this attitude of being lukewarm. I know you; that you are neither cold nor hot: I would that you were cold or hot; so, then because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of my mouth. You say, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and you do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked. As you can see The Eternal has very strong words for this condition, and we had better stop making excuses for our none involvement, we must ascribe to the belief that we are peacemakers. We must become a committee of one to accomplish this. It starts at me, and at you if we really understand that in life everything starts with one step, one step for mankind.

            We have an organization today; known as the United Nations and on ninety percent of the sanctioned missions, the hands of the combatants sent out are tied, and what was meant to be a peacekeeping mission, turned out to be one that causes civil war and dissension at best. We have two very clear examples, Rwanda, and Bosnia, both very explicit failures on the part of the United Nations, in Rwanda alone, 400,000 human lives taken in genocide only because the U.N. could not be switched out of one mode into another. They say peace, peace, but they do not know the way to peace. It is not in man to generate peace, he does not know the way to peace. His word says draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, which speak peace to their neighbours, but mischief is in their hearts. He gave them over to their deeds, and wickedness of their endeavour, and the workings of their hands, and rendered to them their just dessert because they did not regard Him. By the operation of His hands, they will be destroyed, and not be built up.

                  There are so many people who put themselves out there as peacemakers but it is not in their hearts, and they find themselves living a sham. There is no sincerity to it, its all a show, just like the Pharisees in Eternal Creator ’s day, the outside had a good appearance but inside they were as dead man’s bones. Remember peace starts from within that is it must be part of you before you can impart it to others. You must first live in peace with yourself and your surroundings. You must love and respect the self, and those closest to you, then and only then will you know how to love neighbour. When you learn to really love, you will become a peacemaker. I have said before in The Image Syndrome if you cannot help someone do not hurt him or her. We are admonished to keep our tongue from evil, and our lips from speaking guile. Depart from evil, do good works, seek peace, and pursue it. If we do not do this then the only destruction comes, and they shall seek peace, and there shall be none, for the eyes of The Eternal Creator looks over the righteous, and His ears are open unto their prayers: but His face is against them that do evil.

         To Ensure it: develop, something is to bring it about in your life as an end result, to develop it, this peace can only be developed in man through His Grace, it is one of the many gifts. People must bring about peace first, in their inner mind, and then it will emanate to everyone around them, and then everyone feels this peace. I am sure you have known people like that. You know we walk around thinking that it does not matter what we think, or what we say, but we will answer for every word that we speak, at the Great White Throne Judgment. However, if we learn to judge ourselves now in this dispensation of the first resurrection we will have no need to be judged. He said unto him, out of your own mouth will I judge you, you wicked servant. You knew that I was an austere man, taking up what I did not lay down, and reaping what I did not sow. If we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. When we are judged of Him we are chastened so that we should not be condemned with the world. How dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints? Do you not know that the saints shall judge the world: and if we shall judge the world? Are we unworthy to judge the smallest matters: do you not know that our destiny is to judge angels? We have to also be sure that they are the saints of the Highest Eternal Creator, in order to go to them.
