An End to All Suffering – Just Why Is Peace so Elusive?

All over the World we see the rise of suffering, affecting everyone in one way or another. This is often brought about by Government Leaders with “Good Intentions” and others who express Imperial dreams. They believe that this will result in freedom and peace because things are done their way, they will save their people who are oppressed.

The real impact is warfare and shortages that escalate the suffering, that lead to massive numbers of those losing their lives and those remaining survive is extreme conditions.

So why do all of these “good intentions” always fail, and why can’t humanity establish “true peace”?

Look to God’s Answer

The Bible gives us many reasons for this sad state of affairs, note the words at Jeremiah 10: 23 “I well know, O Jehovah, that man’s way does not belong to him. It does not belong to man who is walking even to direct his step.”

We were not designed or intended to rule over another person, Jehovah God gave neither the need nor the right.

Acts 10: 34 “At this Peter began to speak, and he said: “Now I truly understand that God is not partial,35 but in every nation the man who fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him.36 He sent out the word to the sons of Israel to declare to them the good news of peace through Jesus Christ—this one is Lord of all.” He created us Equal!

These Human leaders with the best motives of improving the lives of the people they lead “pass on” and their plans come to an end. So what they start they are unlikely to finish, others will replace them.

In 2 Timothy 3: 1 “But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here.2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal,3 having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness,4 betrayers, headstrong, puffed up with pride, lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God,5 having an appearance of godliness but proving false to its power; and from these turn away”.

Note the key points:

  • Critical times hard to deal with
  • Fierce, headstrong, puffed up with pride
  • without love of Goodness
  • not open to agreement

All of these indicate that we are living the time that Jesus described as the “last days” or “End Times”. Not of humanity but of Human rulership.

The only solution and hope for lasting peace on earth identified in God’s Word as God’s Kingdom that removes all human governments who oppose his rulership. It will bring peace to the earth, it will eliminate all human suffering and those living there will Psalm 37: 10 Just a little while longer, and the wicked will be no more; You will look at where they were, And they will not be there. 11 But the meek will possess the earth, And they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace.

We all need to find out more about God’s Kingdom and recognise it offers the only real solution – it meets our desire never to die – so find out more, study the Bible in depth and find out how each of us can Enjoy Life Forever if you want to know more please comment below or follow the links in our post.

What is happening in Ukraine and the fear of Government Leaders does mean ordinary people die because no one knows what any response will generate. Remember at the time God’s King intervenes we know that there will be no one doing any harm or causing any suffering because we have a righteous ruler in Jesus Christ.

We continue to pray “Let your Kingdom Come, Let you will be done”
