“And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Phil. 4:7
Who brings peace?
The song of the angels that rejoiced at Jesus Christ birth, gave us the harmony of hope that can only come from Almighty God.
The angels joyfully sang.
“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.” Luke 2:14

“The Lord shall fight for you and ye shall hold your peace.” Exodus 14:14
Where should peace begin?
True peace can only come to the nations when peace is felt and experienced in the hearts of the people, a normal outcome of peace with oneself and Jesus Christ.
Let peace begin at home, let peace begin in me.
Let peace begin in you,
Let Peace set us free, set us free
Free to do good, free to help others
Free just to be me!
“And let peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body: and be ye thankful.”
“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.”
“And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.” Colossians 3:9-17
It’s time for Christians to make a stand together for Jesus Christ, to be revived and restored, and to work together for all his holy, moral standards of love, peace and goodness to all people.
Peace in our hearts, brings peace in our lives, and peace to our nation!
“I will both lay me down in peace and sleep; for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety.” Psalms 4:8
Wisdom tells you to be wise, watchful and aware always, because the enemy is near you all the time. It takes the truth, and genuine prayer to Jesus Christ, who always answers prayer and who will intervene, when those who are honest come to him to stop the horrific actions of evil around them.
You can only speak peace to those who are trustworthy, peace can only come through truth. All those who lie cannot be trusted in anything and since they move in opposite directions they will betray you someway, somehow and some day.
~ Joan Jessalyn Cox
And in despair I bowed my head:
‘There is no peace on earth,’ I said,
For hate is strong,
And mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men.’
Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
‘God is not dead, nor doth he sleep;
The wrong shall fail the right prevail,
With peace on earth, good will to men. “
Henry W. Longfellow – 1807-1882
Victorious Faith in Jesus Christ: Creates Good Christian Conduct Joan Jessalyn Cox Second book in the Foundational Faith In Truth Bible Study series, 236 pages, (paperback) $17.99, 9780999161708 (eBook) available $2.99 9780999161715 (Reviewed: November 2017)
In Victorious Faith in Jesus Christ, Joan Jessalyn Cox teaches foundational biblical principles to help Christians become true examples of Christ’s love by growing in spirituality, increasing their faith, and living in “harmony with the truth of God’s word.”
Cox believes many Christians, including some ministers, have an elementary understanding of their faith, which hinders their prayers, binds them to sin, and weakens their witness. She aims to counteract the “profusion of confusion” among Christians by teaching the absolute truth of the Bible. To this end, she urges readers to reflect and discover “mind-hooks” or false teachings that have twisted their thinking and behavior. She encourages daily repentance, Bible study and prayer for a victorious life.
Her wisdom and insight into Scripture bring revelation and conviction as she clearly explains the traits inherent to righteous living, such as integrity, self-discipline, spiritual discernment, and more. Parents will value her candid discussion of proper discipline vs raising children with too much freedom, which she equates to abuse in the form of “fatal neglect.” Further, Cox’s transparent humility in sharing her own past confusion over the belief that grace was a “license to sin” exemplifies her Christlike humility and bolsters her argument that correcting wrong ideas fosters spiritual growth.
Cox’s biblical wisdom is congruent…with her beautiful message of love for lost souls. The truths she shares are biblically sound and valuable to Christians both new and seasoned. Cox’s…contribution to Christian teaching has the potential to be exceptional.
