God’s Way to Blessings 5

Notes
God’s Way To Blessings 5

“Blessed are the peacemakers, For they shall be called sons of God.”
Matthew 5:9 NKJV

Peace; from the Hebrew shalom, everything that makes for a mans highest good.

Please do not take this to mean in order to keep peace we appease disgruntled people or we take the attitude don’t rock the boat. The peace which the Bible calls blessed does bot come from evasion of issues; it comes from facing them, dealing with them, and overcoming them. This peace demands no fear of trouble when truly seeking what is correct before God, it means we do not look the other way when wrong is done in order to “keep the peace”.

Some scriptures a peace maker must live by;

“A soft answer turns away wrath, But a harsh word stirs up anger. The tongue of the wise uses knowledge rightly, But the mouth of fools pours forth foolishness.”
Proverbs 15:1-2 NKJV

“How beautiful upon the mountains Are the feet of him who brings good news, Who proclaims peace, Who brings glad tidings of good things, Who proclaims salvation, Who says to Zion, “Your God reigns!””
Isaiah 52:7 NKJV

“And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!””
Romans 10:15 NKJV

“Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men. If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord.”
Romans 12:17-19 NKJV

“Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord: looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled;”
Hebrews 12:14-15 NKJV

“For “He who would love life And see good days, Let him refrain his tongue from evil, And his lips from speaking deceit. Let him turn away from evil and do good; Let him seek peace and pursue it.”
I Peter 3:10-11 NKJV

“For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity. And He came and preached peace to you who were afar off and to those who were near. For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father.”
Ephesians 2:14-18 NKJV

“For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
Isaiah 9:6 NKJV

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.”
Matthew 5:9 NIV

Called the children of God!
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,

And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.”
Galatians 5:22, 24-26 NKJV
