Crushing Peace

Peace that crushes?

Rom 16:20  And the God of peace shall quickly crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [be] with you. Amen

Also translated as:

New Living Translation (©2007)
The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. May the grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.

Also translated as:

Rom 16:20   And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [be] with you. Amen.

Stereotype of “Peace”

Normally, the concept of peace is one of non-violence, and serene images of nature and mankind.

The image is quiet, without any conflict. All is well.

There is universal harmony, and unity.

Everyone is happy, and relaxed, since it is stress free.

It was most likely like this in heaven, before Satan rebelled.

So to imagine peace as having a “crushing function” seems contradictory.

Peace activists always want “no force, no conflict” in their definition of peace.

Crushing sounds violent, and not peaceful.

Crushing peace

True, lasting peace is not passive.

It is a force, not the absence of force.

There is power behind it, but it is holy, appropriate, positive and constructive.

Just as we might enjoy peace in our homeland, because the military are on duty to ward off threats….

we enjoy peace because of the presence of the Holy Spirit restraining the enemy, Satan.

Absence of Peace

Someday, soon, the Restrainer will be removed from the earth, and the enemy Satan will be loosed on mankind.

There will be no force to stop Satan, and there will be much destruction and death.

Unless one submits to the Holy Spirit now, and receives salvation through Jesus Christ, one will experience this time of wrath.

Someday

Someday, there will be peace, like there was in heaven before Satan rebelled.

Satan will be cast into the lake of fire, and will no longer be a threat.

Someday, the end of all things will be as it was in the beginning.

Peace, power, joy, freedom and holiness.

  1. Lucis Trust calls forth their Christ to earth to help mankind bring about a world peace. Their Christ is not Jesus, but the return of the spirit of Buddah, Mohammad, and the 12th Imam.

    Lucifer will indwell the beast from the sea, and the beast from the earth. This is the Christ spirit Lucis Trust, and their New Age followers call forth every full moon. A pagan chant.

    They claim it is soon, due to the UFO’s mostly over China, the blue beam over Norway. Red, and puke blue are the colors of the Anti-Christ, I mean the New Age Christ who will return to lead the world.

    Obama’s New Hope, and Change with his puke blue (like the UN), and red colors are New Age symbols of their Christ.

    As we know it is written in the Bible it is to happen, but I do not see it happening with so many Christians like me who will call BS on the Global New Age Lucifer worshipers.

  2. Psalms 74-14.Thou brakest the heads of leviathan in pieces, [and] gavest him [to be] meat to the people inhabiting the wilderness.

    Hab 3-13…Thou wentest forth for the salvation of thy people, [even] for salvation with thine anointed; thou woundedst the head out of the house of the wicked, by discovering the foundation unto the neck. Selah.
    Discovering the foundation unto the neck means to expose all the lies..The truth is what crushes satan’s head…
    Satan in turn bruises our heel… That means he turns our feet towards his gospel which is not living bread but stones…This is why our feet are shod with the gospel…Plus God’s angels have charge over us lest we dash our feet against a stone…

    The koran is satan’s stone dead counterfeit word of god…He is trying to turn the world’s feet out of the way of Christ and towards himself…

  3. We are eyeball deep in the last temptation of man prophesied in Rev 3-9,10…Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
    John 8 shows exacrly what a fake jew is.. They claim to worship Abraham’s god but it is satan posing as the god of Abraham..These profess to be sons of Abraham but are not but are seed of Abraham..This means they are not of Isaac but of Esau/Ishmael..These pseudo pharisses in John 8 are also the antichrist John said was among them then.. They denied Jesus is son of god and had him killed for saying it..Islam has the exact same doctrines and customs as these antichrist fake pharisees..Islam is satan’s synagogue of Rev 3-9,10 that tempts the entire world to fall down and worship satan as the god of Abraham..
    Waiting for a translation is blinding the minds of many Christians..and they refuse to see the real truth of the day and hour we are viing in…

  4. Everyone must be careful. The Pope is the Antichrist. Do not be fooled all the world leaders are talking openly of the new world order.The Pope is talking to both Christian and muslim nations the problem is that the catholics are trying to rub out all the protestant nations.If you think I am lying do some homework.

  5. Do not accept the states Sunday rest day NB

  6. Indeed the catholic is the one too watch out for, and do not keep the sunday, and do note you’s must still fellow the 10 commandments, they are written in the old testament, and also within the new testament, just they are spread out within the new testament

  7. The catholic is the early christian. the saints and martyrs were catholics and they died so that all these offsprings can honour jesus. Satan keeps attacking the catholic from inside and outside. the catholic must be god’s chosen church that peter was the rock.

  8. As Christ said to his followers the Kingdom of Heaven is already here but you do not see it.

    However, I do have the moon (Islam) under my feet Rev 12 and I crush the head of the serpent when ever the opportunity arises.

  9. When Jesus returns satan is cast into a pit for 1000 years as Jesus rules on the new earth. Read Rev.20. When Jesus rules their will be those that will not celebrate the feast of Tabernacles. Read Zechariah 14:16-18. These people will follow satan when he is loosed form the bottomless pit. For all God Feast Day are to be celebrated until heaven and earth pass away. Matt.5:17-18.

  10. All the protestant churches offspring from the catholic church. the bible does not decipher itself. the early Christians suffered for the new churches to be here today. Mary was there with the disciples when the tongues of fire came down on the disciples. You can all deny how much you want but the truth is the early Christians were Catholics.

    • “the early Christians were Catholics.” How so?

      Did Jesus tell his disciples to worship Mary as Queen of Heaven, and co-Regent with Christ? Perhaps, Jesus told them to take this bread, eat it, for it is my body, the bread turned into flesh? When Jesus told Peter, he will be the rock on which the Church was built, I guess Jesus was saying Peter was the first Pope, and Christ on earth, able to change the Sabbath day. BTW, don’t forget the pagan holiday turned into Christmas.

      The Catholic Church is following human tradition, and has gotten us all in a lot of trouble. Martin Luther was correct.

    • I don’t think so Ian. The Catholic church acknowledges/worships Mary and the Pope and capitalize on the crucifixion-I saw it with my own eyes while visiting the Vatican….never again…it was nauseating.

      • For those who want to argue with my statement regarding the catholic church worshiping Mary and the Pope….

        This is the definition of Worship:

        Definitions of worship on the Web:

        * idolize: love unquestioningly and uncritically or to excess; venerate as an idol; “Many teenagers idolized the Beatles”
        * show devotion to (a deity); “Many Hindus worship Shiva”
        * the activity of worshipping
        * attend religious services; “They worship in the traditional manner”
        * a feeling of profound love and admiration
        wordnetweb.princeton.edu/perl/webwn

        * Worship is an act of religious devotion usually directed to one or more deities. The word is derived from the Old English worthscipe, meaning worthiness or worth-ship — to give, at its simplest, worth to something.
        en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Worship

  11. Ian;

    The early Christians were Jews. Mary and the disciples were Jews, not Catholics. They continued to be part of the Jewish community for the first century and practice the Holidays and rituals.

    The first three centuries of Christianity,
    as seen by religious liberals and historians

    Four decades later, in 70 CE the Roman Army attacked Jerusalem and destroyed the central focus of Jewish life: the temple. This was an absolutely devastating blow at the time; Jewish life was totally disrupted. Jews were no longer able to worship at the Temple. Out of this disaster emerged two main movements: rabbinical Judaism centered in local synagogues, and the Christian movement.

    Jewish Christian movement
    Pauline Christianity
    Gnostic Christianity

    After the deaths of the Apostles, the Apostolic Fathers were looked upon for guidance. They included a number of teachers and bishops: e.g. Clement of Alexandria, Irenaeus, Origen, Polycarp, Tertullian. A hierarchical organizational structure called the “monarchial episcopate” then developed in which the individual congregational leaders recognized the authority of their area bishop in matters of doctrine and faith. There was no person or group who could speak for the church as a whole. It was only in 325 CE that bishops from throughout the Christian movement would be able to meet at the Council of Nicea and attempt to start resolving differences in Christian beliefs.

    Catholics don’t believe in a millennium. Why should they? They believe all the blessings and promises were transferred to the Church. If God doesn’t keep his promises to Israel, why should he to the Church? A lot of Protestant churches and the cults are into replacement theology too.
    Read the book of Revelation especially the first 4 chapters addressed to the Churches.

  12. […] Crushing Peace […]
