PEACE

 Psalm 34:4

King James Version

4 I sought the Lord, 

and he heard me, 

and delivered me from all my fears.


What could be better than peace, from all our fears?

Who could give us the peace we seek?

What gives lasting peace?

Only JESUS, the PRINCE of PEACE, can give us peace.

Scripture testifies of it.

Isaiah 9:6

King James Version

6 For unto us a child is born, 

unto us a son is given: 

and the government shall be upon his shoulder: 

and his name shall be called Wonderful, 

Counsellor, 

The mighty God, 

The everlasting Father, 

The Prince of Peace.


Here's what the LORD told us:

Matthew 5:9

King James Version

9 Blessed are the peacemakers: 

for they shall be called the children of God.


Matthew 6:31-33

King James Version

31 Therefore take no thought, saying, 

What shall we eat? 

or, What shall we drink? 

or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) 

for your heavenly Father knoweth 

that ye have need of all these things.

33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, 

and his righteousness; 

and all these things shall be added unto you.


Matthew 11:28-30

King James Version

28 Come unto me, 

all ye that labour and are heavy laden, 

and I will give you rest.

29 Take my yoke upon you, 

and learn of me; 

for I am meek and lowly in heart: 

and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

30 For my yoke is easy, 

and my burden is light.


Mark 4:37-39

King James Version

37 And there arose a great storm of wind, 

and the waves beat into the ship, 

so that it was now full.

38 And he was in the hinder part of the ship, 

asleep on a pillow: 

and they awake him, 

and say unto him, 

Master, 

carest thou not that we perish?

39 And he arose, 

and rebuked the wind, 

and said unto the sea, 

Peace, be still. 

And the wind ceased, 

and there was a great calm.


Mark 4:40

King James Version

40 And he said unto them, 

Why are ye so fearful? 

how is it that ye have no faith?


Mark 9:50

King James Version

50 Salt is good: 

but if the salt have lost his saltness, 

wherewith will ye season it

Have salt in yourselves, 

and have peace one with another.


Luke 24:36

King James Version

36 And as they thus spake, 

Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, 

and saith unto them, 

Peace be unto you.


Luke 24:38-39

King James Version

38 And he said unto them, 

Why are ye troubled? 

and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?

39 Behold my hands and my feet, 

that it is I myself: 

handle me, 

and see; 

for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, 

as ye see me have.


Luke 24:44

King James Version

44 And he said unto them, 

These are the words which I spake unto you, 

while I was yet with you, 

that all things must be fulfilled, 

which were written in the law of Moses, 

and in the prophets, 

and in the psalms, 

concerning me.


Luke 24:46-49

King James Version

46 And said unto them, 

Thus it is written, 

and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, 

and to rise from the dead the third day:

47 And that repentance and remission of sins 

should be preached in his name among all nations, 

beginning at Jerusalem.

48 And ye are witnesses of these things.

49 And, behold, 

I send the promise of my Father upon you: 

but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, 

until ye be endued with power from on high.


John 3:16-17

King James Version

16 For God so loved the world, 

that he gave his only begotten Son, 

that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, 

but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not his Son into the world 

to condemn the world; 

but that the world through him 

might be saved.


John 10:27-28

King James Version

27 My sheep hear my voice, 

and I know them, 

and they follow me:

28 And I give unto them eternal life; 

and they shall never perish, 

neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.


John 10:29

King James Version

29 My Father, 

which gave them me, 

is greater than all; 

and no man is able to pluck them 

out of my Father's hand.


John 10:30

King James Version

30 I and my Father are one.


John 14:1-4

King James Version

14 Let not your heart be troubled: 

ye believe in God, 

believe also in me.

2 In my Father's house are many mansions:

 if it were not so, 

I would have told you. 

I go to prepare a place for you.

3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, 

I will come again, 

and receive you unto myself; 

that where I am, 

there ye may be also.

4 And whither I go ye know, 

and the way ye know.


John 14:6

King James Version

6 Jesus saith unto him, 

I am the way, the truth, 

and the life: 

no man cometh unto the Father, 

but by me.


John 14:27

King James Version

27 Peace I leave with you, 

my peace I give unto you: 

not as the world giveth, 

give I unto you. 

Let not your heart be troubled, 

neither let it be afraid.


John 16:7-15

King James Version

7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; 

It is expedient for you that I go away: 

for if I go not away, 

the Comforter will not come unto you; 

but if I depart, 

I will send him unto you.

8 And when he is come, 

he will reprove the world of sin, 

and of righteousness, 

and of judgment:

9 Of sin, because they believe not on me;

10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, 

and ye see me no more;

11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.

12 I have yet many things to say unto you, 

but ye cannot bear them now.

13 Howbeit when he, 

the Spirit of truth, is come, 

he will guide you into all truth: 

for he shall not speak of himself; 

but whatsoever he shall hear, 

that shall he speak: 

and he will shew you things to come.

14 He shall glorify me: 

for he shall receive of mine, 

and shall shew it unto you.

15 All things that the Father hath are mine: 

therefore said I, 

that he shall take of mine, 

and shall shew it unto you.


John 16:33

King James Version

33 These things I have spoken unto you, 

that in me ye might have peace. 

In the world ye shall have tribulation: 

but be of good cheer; 

I have overcome the world.


John 20:19-22

King James Version

19 Then the same day at evening, 

being the first day of the week, 

when the doors were shut 

where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, 

came Jesus and stood in the midst, 

and saith unto them, 

Peace be unto you.

20 And when he had so said, 

he shewed unto them his hands and his side. 

Then were the disciples glad, 

when they saw the Lord.

21 Then said Jesus to them again, 

Peace be unto you: 

as my Father hath sent me, 

even so send I you.

22 And when he had said this, 

he breathed on them, 

and saith unto them, 

Receive ye the Holy Ghost:
