Why Is Jesus, The Prince Of Peace And Not The King Of Peace

Why is Jesus named the Prince of Peace instead of the King of Peace?

I used to be a member of the Jehovah’s Witnesses. I have come out of that faith and have gained a great deal of knowledge about God as a result of my experience. One of my most persistent prayers has been to come to grips with the NATURE OF GOD’S BEING. Despite the fact that I continue to pray to Jehovah in Jesus’ name, I am mindful of the fact that Stephen prayed directly to Jesus to receive his spirit while he was dying (acts 7:59) Although the Bible states elsewhere that the spirit returns to God upon death, such as Ecclesiastes 12:7, this is not the case.

And so, is Jesus God the King, God the Father, or just God the Son and Prince of Peace?

It is said that the temple of the PRINCE OF HOSTS has been profaned at that location (Daniel 8:11).

That reminded me of the verse in Isaiah 44:6: As the LORD, KING OF ISREAL and his Redeemer, the LORD OF HOSTS, declares, “I am the first and I am the last, and there is no other god other from Me.” “Now, contrast that with Joshua chapters 56, where it is likely Jesus who says in Joshua 5:16,” Now I have come; I am the PRINCE OF JEHOVAH’S HOSTS; and Joshua falls to his knees on the ground, bowing his head in reverence to the ground and saying to Him, ‘What is my Lord addressing unto His servant?'” (THIS IS A DIRECT TRANSLATION FROM HEBREW, ACCORDING TO YOUNG’S LITERAL TRANSLATION) However, as you read through the chapter, it becomes clear that God himself is with Joshua, and the tale concludes in the last line of Joshua chapter 6, which states that it was Jehovah who was with Joshua.

  1. hmmmmm, here we go again!
  2. However, I do see instances in which Jesus was used to lead and protect Israel, and since the entire Old Testament is the story of Israel, it makes sense that Jesus would continually be referred to as THEIR PRINCE to the people because Jehovah was their God.
  3. Now, in the book of Revelation, we see Jesus being renamed by God himself as our Eternal Father, our source of life and light, and being openly worshipped as such by the faithful (where he is also referred to as the Alpha and Omega).
  4. Despite the fact that I am still baffled beyond words, I can declare that after spending 40 years criticizing anybody who worshipped Christ as God rather than Jehovah as God and Jesus as the simple Son of God who should not be worshipped, I have come to this conclusion.
  5. It appears to me that Jesus is to be venerated as a God in our day and that his spilling of blood elevated him from the role as a leader and a defender to the role of savior and the everlasting parent in that he restored to us the possibility of eternal life!
  6. After Jesus was raised to the right hand of the Father, something incredible happened that I am still trying to comprehend, something that permitted God to elevate Jesus to the position of King, who now sits on the only throne of absolute authority on the face of the earth.
  7. Something that prompted a vengeful God to declare, “Worship him as well!” Even though I previously stated that there would be no other God, I have enabled Jesus to be a God who possesses the power of life and death.
  8. 5:25-29 – The Gospel of John.

This is nothing to be surprised about; for an hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice and will come forth; those who did good actions to a resurrection of life, and those who did bad deeds to a resurrection of judgment.” Consequently, the simple answer is that Jesus was a Prince until he shed his blood and was resurrected to the throne of God.

It’s mind-blowing.

Is this a temporary position?

Supposedly, when all things have been reconciled, Jesus is to step aside and hand all things back to the Father, in order for the Father to be all things to all people without the need for Jesus to be involved.

To put it another way, it would appear that JESUS is relinquishing all authority over things such as life and death, judgment, and so on to GOD. RESEARCH THAT ONE! I WILL.

5 Reasons Jesus Is Still the Prince of Peace

I used to be a Jehovah’s Witness, but I’ve since left the organization. Because I have left that faith, I believe I have gained a greater understanding of the nature and character of the Creator. Understanding the NATURE OF GOD’S BEING has been a continual prayer for me. In spite of the fact that Stephen prayed directly to Jesus in order to obtain his spirit as he lay dying, I continue to pray to Jehovah in Jesus’ name (acts 7:59) Although the Bible states elsewhere that the spirit returns to God upon death, such as Ecclesiastes 12:7, this is not the case in this instance.

And so, is Jesus God the King, God the Father, or just God the Son and Prince of Peace?

It is said that the temple of the PRINCE OF HOSTS has been desecrated there (Daniel 8:11).

Isaiah 44:6 came to mind as a result of this.

Now I have come; I am the PRINCE OF JEHOVAH’S HOSTS; and Joshua falls to his knees on the ground, bowing his head in reverence to the ground and saying to Him, ‘What is my Lord saying unto His servant?'” THIS IS A DIRECT TRANSLATION FROM HEBREW AND COMES FROM YOUNG’S LITERAL TRANSLATION The tale finishes in the last verse of Joshua chapter 6 with the statement that it was Jehovah who was with Joshua.

However, as you go through the chapter, you will notice that God himself is with Joshua.

While I understand how Jesus was used to lead and protect Israel, as well as being referred to as THEIR PRINCE, and since the entire Old Testament is the story of Israel, it makes sense that Jesus would continually be referred to as THEIR PRINCE to the people because Jehovah was the God of the people, it appears to me that single act changed the nature of the relationship between God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.

  • God himself has renamed Jesus as our Eternal Father, our source of life and light, and he is publicly worshipped as such in the book of Revelation, which we have just finished reading (where he is also referred to as the Alpha and Omega).
  • But I can say this after spending 40 years criticizing anybody who worshipped Christ as God instead of Jehovah as God and Jesus as the simple Son of God who should not be worshipped, that I am still perplexed beyond words.
  • At the very least, I believe that Jesus is to be revered as a God in our day and that his spilling of blood elevated him from being a leader and a defender to being a savior and the everlasting parent in the sense that he restored the possibility of eternal life to us!
  • Immediately upon Jesus’ ascension to the right hand of the Father, something miraculous occurred that I am still trying to comprehend, something that enabled God to elevate Jesus to the position of King, sitting on the one and only throne of absolute authority.
  • ‘Worship him as well!’ said a vengeful God in response to something.
  • Philippians 2:10 (Philippians 2:10-11).

5:25-29 — The Gospel of John “Truly, truly, I say to you, an hour is coming, and the hour has come, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live.” Because, just as the Father has life in Himself, so He has given to the Son the ability to have life in Himself; and, because He is the Son of Man, He has given Him the authority to execute judgment on the earth.

As a result, he ascended to the position of King of Kings, and Lord of Lords, among many other titles.

That brings us to the following question: Is this a part-time or seasonal position?

Supposedly, when all things have been reconciled, Jesus is to step aside and hand all things back to the Father, in order for the Father to be all things to all people without the need for the intervention of Jesus.

To put it another way, it would appear that JESUS is relinquishing all authority over things such as life and death and judgment to GOD. GO OUT AND RESEARCH THAT ONE! I AM GOING TO.

1. Jesus Provides Peace with God

As a result, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, according to Romans 5:1. Paul writes in Ephesians 2:13-16, ” But now, in Christ Jesus, you who were once a long way away have been brought close by the blood of Jesus. He is our peace, for He is the One who brought both groups together and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, in order that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace, and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, by which the enmity was put to death.

  1. When we experience Jesus as the One who, by His sacrifice on the cross, reconciles us to God, we enter into a state of peace.
  2. We inherited Adam’s sinful nature (Romans 5:12), and as a result, we were hostile, estranged, and enemies of God (Romans 8:7,Colossians 1:21).
  3. In order to meet God’s standard of holiness and acceptable righteousness, death was required as a penalty for our sin.
  4. A flawless, blameless existence was cut short by a Roman crucifixion — an innocent man was put to death for what he did.
  5. His sinless life satisfied the requirements of the Law, his death satisfied our debt of sin, and God confirmed His sacrifice as sufficient payment for the sins of the world by rising Him from the dead.
  6. Take a look at this.
  7. You are quite aware that you are guilty, as is everyone else in the courtroom.
  8. Just as they are about to shackle you and drag you out the door, your defense counsel steps up and offers to accept your penalty.
  9. He is sent to prison, while you are released.
  10. Not only does Jesus take your penalty, but he also removes the guilt and humiliation that came along with your transgression as well.

2. Jesus Provides Peace in the Circumstances

I have told these things to you in order that you may have peace with Me. John 16:33 You will face difficulties in this world, but have courage, for I have overcome the world. Philippians 4:6-7 (NASB) – No matter what, do not be concerned about it; instead, make your requests known to God through prayer and petition, accompanied by thankfulness. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will protect your hearts and minds as you trust in the finished work of Jesus Christ. Jesus forewarned His followers that they would be subjected to adversity.

  • The only thing we are doing here is passing through on the road to our everlasting home.
  • Like Jesus, we may expect to be ridiculed, insulted, and even murdered for our beliefs, just as he was.
  • Adam’s transgression has ramifications not just for humans, but also for our physical environment (Romans 8:19-21).
  • A “world of woes,” on the other hand, is perceived in a different light by those who follow Christ.
  • We can confront frightening situations because we are certain that Jesus has vanquished the world and that our future is secure in Him.
  • We bring our worries to Jesus, who is the only One who has the ability to do anything about what we are afraid of.
  • John 14:27 (NIV) You will have peace because I leave you peace; you will have my peace because I offer you my peace, not the peace that the world provides you.

3. Jesus Provides Peace in the Family

Romans 14:19 – As a result, we seek after those things that promote peace and the mutual building up of one another. Paul writes in Ephesians 4:13 that he implores you to act in a way worthy of the vocation to which you have been called, with all humility and gently, with patient, with displaying tolerance for one another in love, and with diligence to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. A false oneness amongst all faiths, ideologies, and philosophical systems is offered in an attempt to bring about world peace.

  • Unfortunately, while this appears to be a fantastic idea, it is actually a deceitful deception.
  • In fact, He would cause discord between fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, and even between brothers and sisters (Luke 12:51-53).
  • Darkness and light will never be able to coexist since light will always be victorious over darkness.
  • Only when we are joined in Christ can we experience true peace.
  • The Holy Spirit is also known as the Spirit of Christ (Romans 8:9).
  • It is our prayer that as we walk in the Spirit, there would be peace between the members of Christ’s body, the church.
  • We must decide whether we will listen to the Spirit and desire peace, or if we will listen to our body and pursue evil.

By faith in Christ, as we all submit to the Spirit of Christ and the authority of God’s word, we may live in harmony with one another and be at peace with one another. We can achieve tranquility in our household. Photograph courtesy of Getty Images/rawpixel

4. Jesus Provides Peace That Rules Our Hearts

Paul writes in Colossians 3:15, “Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which you were actually called in one body,” and to be thankful. In light of the preceding section, it is reasonable to wonder, “What happens when two believers disagree and are unable to come to a peaceful solution?” What criteria do we use to judge who is correct and who is incorrect? When do we simply “give in” in order to “maintain the status quo?” It is through the use of the term “rule” in Colossians 3:15 that we may better grasp how to walk in peace with God and with others.

  1. You have a strong conviction in your heart, as well as anxiety or a lack of tranquility.
  2. The presence or absence of peace leads our movements and guides our decisions and conduct, and Jesus is the one who governs them.
  3. Our understanding of the truth of Scripture is enlightened by the Holy Spirit, and as we follow it, we feel the peace that reigns in our hearts.

5. Jesus Provides Eternal Peace

According to Isaiah 9:7, there will be no end to the expansion of His administration or the preservation of peace on David’s throne and in His kingdom, to maintain and preserve it with justice and righteousness from that time forward and forevermore. This will be accomplished by the zeal of the Lord of hosts. To begin, we looked to Isaiah’s prophesy, which identified the Messiah as our Prince of Peace. Jesus’ reign of peace will continue indefinitely, according to God’s promise in the same chapter.

  1. We have already been reconciled and at peace with God as a result of our faith in Christ.
  2. Our tranquility, on the other hand, is continuously under siege in this world.
  3. He tempts us, encouraging our flesh to join in with sin in this day and age.
  4. Our self-centered human nature frequently rears its ugly head, causing discord among Christians.
  5. Jesus will return at some point in the future.

The great Prince of Peace will ascend to the throne of our earth, and we will begin to enjoy the eternal peace that God has promised us. What are we supposed to do in the meantime? The Bible provides a straightforward prescription to “maintain the peace.”

We Keep Our Eyes on the Prince of Peace

Isaiah 26:3– You will maintain him in complete peace if his thoughts are fixed on You, because he has placed his confidence in You; ‘Stayed’ is an ancient Hebrew word that meaning to depend or rest on. We put our faith in Jesus. We take comfort in Him. We direct our thoughts and feelings toward His promises. We have faith in His ability to maintain us, and we demonstrate that faith by our desire to obey Him. As we devote our lives to following, obeying, and pleasing Him, we shall be filled with the wonderful serenity He has promised us.

Ask Father Paul – Why is Jesus called the Prince of Peace?

Answers to your questions about life, religion, and the Bible are available here. What is the significance of Jesus being referred to as the Prince of Peace? Greetings, Father Paul: Christmas 2015 is almost around the corner. Over the course of many years, I’ve heard Jesus referred to as “The Prince of Peace,” particularly around the Christmas season. What is the meaning of the term Prince of Peace, and what is the origin of the title? — Tony et al. Greetings, Tony: I am writing to express my gratitude for the time you have taken to read this letter.

  1. You are absolutely correct.
  2. This is due to a Messianic prophesy given by the Jewish prophet Isaiah more than 600 years before the birth of Christ in the city of Bethlehem in Palestine, according to the Bible.
  3. According to the Old Testament of the Holy Bible, this well-known prophesy may be found at Chapter 9 in Isaiah’s Book of Prophecy.
  4. Now that Jesus has been dubbed “the Prince of Peace,” what does it mean?
  5. The Hebrew word “shalom,” which appears in our reading from Isaiah 9:6, and which Bible translators have rendered as the English word “peace,” is frequently used by Jews as a word of greeting.
  6. A few examples: completion and wholeness; rest; safety; soundness; tranquillity; prosperity; fullness; harmony; the absence of concern; the absence of agitation or discord; the absence of conflict.
  7. I’m looking forward to this tranquility.

Shepherds were in the nearby fields guarding their flocks at night during the time of Jesus’ birth in Bethlehem, according to Luke Chapter 2, when a swarm of angels appeared, hailing God and proclaiming (in the New Revised Standard Version) “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace (shalom) among those whom he favors.” With everything that is going on in the world around us this Christmas, 2015, the people of the globe are crying out for peace.

  1. shalom.
  2. Simply put, and this is something that some of us have yet to grasp, drugs, alcohol, one-night stands, large homes, fast vehicles, impressive positions and titles, psychotherapy, and wealth will not offer lasting tranquility.
  3. “I am leaving you with a gift, which is peace of mind and heart,” Jesus remarked to his followers as he was on the verge of being crucified, according to John 14:27 (New Living Translation).
  4. Therefore, don’t be concerned or alarmed.” To put it another way, Tony, the Lord Jesus is far more than a “peace teacher” or “one who preached peace.” I understand that this is a tough notion to grasp, but Jesus does not simply “represent peace,” rather, Jesus is peace!
  5. He is actually the embodiment of peace in the flesh.
  6. Moreover, as we learn to actually know Jesus, rather than only knowing “about” Jesus, a miracle begins to happen.
  7. in both body and spirit.
  8. In essence, what I am saying is that there is a deep and profound spiritual mystery that many people are unaware of because it cannot be fully appreciated or understood by our limited human brain or understanding.
  9. I feel that Jesus’ title of “Prince of Peace” is a great description of who he is.
  10. To all of my cherished readers, I wish you the peace of Christ and a very Merry Christmas.
  11. Do you want to ask a question?

What Does it Mean that Jesus Is the Prince of Peace?

Around 700 BC, the prophet Isaiah foretold the arrival of the Messiah on the scene. His prophesies about Jesus, which are recorded in the Bible, are cited all throughout the globe, especially during the Christmas season. “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders,” the Bible says. And he will be referred to as “Wonderful Counselor,” “Mighty God,” “Everlasting Father,” “Prince of Peace,” and other titles. In Isaiah 9:6, the Bible says The different positions of Jesus were revealed, including those of a child, a son, a government official, a counselor, God, a parent, and a prince.

It would be impossible to maintain the continuation of life if there was no peace.

Blessings from the Prince of Peace

The only reason we can genuinely live peacefully with God is because of Jesus Christ. Living in harmony with all of God’s creation is built on the basis of having a proper relationship with God. Our worries of death are eliminated when we believe in Jesus, and they are replaced with the gift of eternal life (Romans 6:23). Furthermore, the Son of God has assumed the role of the Prince of Peace in order for us, God’s children, to take on the role of peacemakers (Matthew 5:9,Isaiah 57:19). As we patiently await the second coming of the Prince of Peace, we shall be able to behold paradise on earth because of the peace of God that reigns over our life.

1. Restore Every Broken Relationship

Since the fall of man, sin has been “transmitted” to humanity, and death has been introduced into the earth as a result (Romans 5:12). Every man’s rebellious character drove him to be an adversary of God, his neighbors, and even himself because of his sinful nature. Because of sin, man desired to live a self-centered existence separate from his Creator, which had the potential to result in a permanent separation from Him. God understood from the beginning that no amount of good acts could save man from the shackles of sin and the eternal consequences that resulted as a result of sin.

Jesus Christ, the perfect lamb of God, has completed the difficult task on our behalf by His sacrifice on the cross, allowing us to live in peace with God, others, and ourselves (Ephesians 2:14-18), as well as with the rest of creation (Romans 8:1).

2. Provide a Well-Ordered and Balanced Life

The peace of Christ is the key to living in harmony with one’s surroundings, and it enables us to live with a thankful heart (Colossians 3:15). Jesus takes care of not just our spiritual needs, but also our emotional and bodily well-being as well. He understands the need of maintaining a healthy work-life balance. To the contrary, Jesus ordered us to labor (John 9:4) and rest (Matthew 11:28) in Him, which is an approach that will offer us real fulfillment. As a result of our reconciliation with God, we are called to commit our life to serving His kingdom rather than serving our own desires.

God’s peace also brings His people together for the purpose of building up the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 14:33,Ephesians 4:1-3).

Let us entrust our life to Christ, knowing that He is our source of comfort. Give our troubles to Jesus, so that we may be filled with His complete peace in our hearts and minds. Anxiety, doubts, concerns, and restlessness are all normal feelings (Philippians 4:6-7).

3. Assure Our Eternal Destiny

Every human being, in addition to his or her bodily, emotional, and spiritual requirements, need (an guarantee of) redemption. Because life on Earth is fleeting, we have a greater need for spiritual things than we have for material things. We all need everlasting life — a relationship with the Creator that is free from evil, sin, and death – at some point or another. No individual in history has had the audacity to make such a bold promise as that of eternal life. That being said, here is the good news: in Jesus Christ, we have that same promise, since He is the source of life, who has personally experienced triumph over death and has therefore become our example (Acts 3:15).

We may continue to be filled with God’s love while we rest in His perfect peace, which casts away all of our concerns.

Scriptures on Peace

Every shattered connection is restored by Jesus. As a result, just as sin entered the world via one man, and death entered the world through sin, and therefore death spread to all men because all men sinned, death spread to all men because all men sinned (Romans 5:12, NKJV). Christ is the reason for our current state of tranquility. He united us Jews and those of you who are not Jews into a single people. We were divided by a wall of hatred that stood between us, but Christ tore down that wall and brought us together.

  1. His goal was to unite the two factions within him and make them one.
  2. Christ’s death on the cross put an end to the hatred that existed between the two parties.
  3. He accomplished this by his death on the cross.
  4. His peace message was sent to individuals who were in close proximity to God.
  5. Those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit, are no longer under condemnation, and they are no longer under punishment (Romans 8:1, NKJV).
  6. As a result, since we have been justified by faith, we have found peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, who is our High Priest (Romans 5:1).
  7. It is through Jesus that we may live in harmony and balance with one another.

And remember to be grateful (Colossians 3:15, ESV).

The night is approaching, and no one will be able to work (John 9:4, NLT).

As Christians, we believe that the Kingdom of God is not about what we eat or drink, but rather about living a life of goodness, peace, and pleasure in the Holy Spirit (Romans 14:17, NLT).

As a prisoner for the Lord, I implore you to live a life that is worthy of the calling that you have been given by the Lord.

Attempt to maintain the oneness of the Spirit by means of the bond of peace at all costs (Ephesians 4:1-3).

And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will protect your hearts and minds as you trust in the Lord Jesus Christ (Philippians 4:6-7).

Though you assassinated the originator of life, God resurrected him from the grave.

The Son of God has come and given us insight so that we may know him who is true; and we are in him who is true, through his Son, Jesus Christ.

The gift I’m leaving you is one of tranquility of mind and heart.

“Therefore, do not be concerned or scared.” (John 14:27, New Living Translation).

“I’m going to introduce them to a new word: peace.

They shall be healed by me.” This was spoken by the Lord himself (Isaiah 57:19, ERV). Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called the children of God, according to the Scriptures. (Matthew 5:9, King James Version) Images courtesy of iStock/Getty Images Plus/aurorat

What does it mean that Jesus is the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6)?

QuestionAnswer “For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; and the government will be upon His shoulders; and His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,Eternal Father, Prince of Peace,” according to Isaiah’s prophesy concerning the future Messiah (Isaiah 9:6). A world plagued with conflict and bloodshed makes it difficult to comprehend how Jesus could be the all-powerful God who intervenes in human history while yet serving as the epitome of peaceful coexistence.

“Shalom,” which is the Hebrew word for “peace,” is frequently used in relation to the appearance of calm and tranquillity in the lives of people, communities, and even nations.

“The spiritual concord brought about by an individual’s reconnection with God,” according to the deeper, more fundamental definition of peace.

“However, God proves His own love for us in that Christ died for us while we were yet sinners” (Romans 5:8).

As John 10:27–28 explains, this is the deep, enduring peace that exists between our hearts and our Creator that cannot be taken away, and it is the final culmination of Christ’s ministry as “Prince of Peace.” In addition to providing eternal peace, Christ’s sacrifice permits us to have a connection with the Holy Spirit, the Helper who pledges to lead us in our lives (John 16:7, 13).

  • The love, joy, and peace that a believer experiences are all the consequence of the Holy Spirit’s activity in his or her life.
  • And, although their most profound and important effect is for us to live in love, joy, and peace with God, they can’t help but spill over into our interactions with other people as a byproduct of this.
  • This unity of purpose and kindness would be difficult to achieve without the activity of the Holy Spirit in us, as well as the peace we have with God as a result of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
  • Paul writes in Ephesians 2:8–9 that we can do nothing to achieve or preserve our spiritual peace with God.
  • It is important to note that “quiet” does not imply “easy.” Jesus never guaranteed that it would be simple; He just promised that it would be helpful.

Philippians 4:6–7 states that if we call on His name, He will provide us the “peace of God, which exceeds all understanding.” Even in the midst of our difficulties, we may pray for peace that comes from God’s consuming love for us and is not reliant on our own strength or the circumstances surrounding us.

What the Bible says about King of Peace

Hebrews 7:1-3SinceGodnames individuals what they are, that, then is what this man is: “King of Righteousness.”Think of it! King of Righteousness.Jesus Himself said: “There is none good but one, that is, God” (Matthew 19:17). Human self-righteousness is, before God, as filthy rags. None can be righteous but God—or one made righteous by God’s power—Christ in a person! And certainly none but One of the God Family—the divine Kingdom of God—would be King of Righteousness. Such an expression, applied to any but God, would be blasphemous. Why?Righteousness is obedience toGod’s law. Since God made all laws (James 4:12), He is Supreme Ruler or King. He determines what righteousness is. “All thy commandments are righteousness” (Psalm 119:172). When speaking of one of the points of that law, Jesus placed Himself superior to it. He is Lord of theSabbath(Mark 2:28). No man is Lord or King over God’s law. Only God could be! All human beings have sinned and broken that law of righteousness (Romans 3:23).To continue with Hebrews 7. Note, too, that this man was King ofpeace. “Salem,” from which Jerusalem was named, means “peace.” And remember, Jesus is called the Prince of peace! No human being could be King of Peace. Men know not the way of peace. ReadRomans 3:10and 17: “There is none righteous, no, not one. And the way of peace have they not known.”Observe further:Melchizedekwas “without mother, without father, without descent,” or as the Phillips translation renders it: “He had no father or mother and no family tree.” He was not born as human beings are. He was without father and mother. This does not mean that Melchizedek’s records of birth were lost. Without such records human priests could not serve (Ezra 2:62). But here Melchizedek had no genealogy. He must not have been an ordinary mortal. He had no descent or pedigree from another, but was self-existent. Notice Paul’s own inspired interpretation of this fact: “Having neither beginning of days, nor end of life” (Hebrews 7:3). Therefore He has always existed from eternity! He was not even created, like angels. But He is now eternally self-existing. And that is true only of G ODdeity, not humanity!Yet Melchizedek cannot be God the Father. He was the “priest of that Most High God.” Scripture says no man has ever seen the Father (John 1:18, 5:37), but Abraham saw Melchizedek. He cannot be God the Father, but rather, “made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually” (Hebrews 7:3).And there it is! In the days of Abraham, He was not the Son of God, for He had not yet been born of the virgin Mary but He was made like unto the Son of God in His manifestation to the ancients.Notice again: Melchizedek, this scripture reveals, abides that is, remains permanently, continually, a priest. God the Father is not the Priest of God, but Christ the Son is! Yet, in the days when the Apostle Paul lived and wrote, shortly after Jesus ascended to heaven as High Priest, the scripture states that even then Melchizedek “abideth”—which means does now abide—”a priest continually.” The Moffatt translation states it: “continues to be priest permanently” even whileJesus Christis High Priest!And notice that the order of Christ’s Priesthood is named after Melchizedek. It is the High Priest’s name that is placed upon an order just as Aaron’s name was upon the Aaronic priesthood. Thus Melchizedek was then High Priest, in Paul’s day, and even now, and He will rule forever! And at the same time Christ was, is today, and shall be forever High Priest!Are there two High Priests? No! Impossible! The conclusion is inescapable. Contrary to many cherished man-thought-out ideas, Melchizedek and Christ are one and the same! Some people have stumbled on the statement that Melchizedek has no “end of life.” They contend that since Christ died, He had an end of life! If that be true then Christ is still dead! But Christ is not dead. He is alive. It was not possible for Christ to be held by death (Acts 2:24). Melchizedek would never have fulfilled His office of High Priest if He had not died for the sins of the people and risen again. It is the function of the High Priest to lead the way to salvation.Indeed, Jesus Christ is the author and finisher of our salvation (Hebrews 5:9;12:2). He is “called of God an high priest after the order of Melchizedek” (Hebrews 5:10).And no wonder. Melchizedek and Christ are one and the same Person!

Jesus Christ is the King of Peace

“Peace I leave with you, My peace I give you,” Jesus said to His followers just before He left for the final time. I do not give to you in the same way that the rest of the world does. Keep your emotions from being worried and your minds from being terrified” (John 14:27 NIV). Even though we serve a King who is King of Peace, Jesus Christ does not provide us with the same kind of peace that this world does. While the peace that this world delivers is the lack of conflict, which is frequently the outcome of a positive way of thinking, the peace that God gives us is the condition of being assured in the knowledge that He is in complete charge of the situation.

This gives us the courage to face any situation without dread of the present or the future, no matter how difficult.

Jesus Christ: The Prince and Ruler of Peace

Jesus’ Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem is described in John 12:12-16, during which a large number of people rushed out to greet him, holding out palm branches while screaming, “Hosanna!” (Praise be to God). Those who come in the name of the Lord are to be exalted! “The King of Israel!” exclaims the crowd. Free Bible Images are used in this photograph (Pinterest) This occurrence represents the fulfillment of the prophecy of Zechariah 9:9, which predicted the first arrival of Jesus. Then in Zechariah 9:10-11, we learn about the prophesy of Jesus’ second coming, which has not yet occurred as of this writing.

He Pardons Our Sins

The King of Peace has the ability to pardon or forgive us of our sins. He is also known as the Prince of Peace (Matthew 9:6 NIV). Forgiveness and pardon are identical terms. They all have a similar denominator, which is the concept of “sin cancellation.” Jesus replied to the disabled man who was brought to Him in Matthew 9:2 that he should “take heart, son; your sins are forgiven,” referring to the fact that his sins had been forgiven. To have simply said, “Get up, take your mat, and go home,” would have been simpler for Jesus to say.

It is possible to conclude that disease is directly related with sin, based on this scripture and the story of the Healing of the Lame Man by the Pool near the Sheep Gate in Jerusalem (John 5:14).

It is possible to observe a large number of convicted murderers and criminals who have broken both the rules of man and the laws of God, yet who are in far better health than some pastors and other dedicated workers of God.

One thing is certain, regardless of whether sin is linked to human illness or not: Jesus, our King of Peace, has been entrusted with the ability to forgive us of our sins.

The apostle Paul writes, “He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and transferred us into the domain of the Son of His love, in Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our sins.” 1:13-14 (Colossians 1:13-14)

He Enriches Our Lives

The authority to pardon or forgive us from our sins rests with the King of Peace (Matthew 9:6 NIV). Forgiveness and pardon are identical. “Cancellation of sins” is the unifying denominator among them all. Jesus told the crippled man who was brought to Him in Matthew 9:2, “Take heart, son; your sins are forgiven,” after forgiving and healing him of his paralysis. To have simply said, “Get up, take your mat, and go home,” would have been less difficult for Jesus. However, He did this in order to demonstrate to them that the Son of Man has authority on earth to pardon crimes (v.6), and that He does, in fact, forgive our sins!

  1. As a result of our collective rebellion against God, sickness, on the other hand, is a part of life in this broken world.
  2. Consequently, as we can see in John 9:1-3, disease befell all men without discrimination.
  3. This is precisely what He has done in the past, what He is doing now, and what He will continue to do in the future for people who will repent of their sins and turn back to Him.
  4. 1:13-14; Colossians 1:13-14;

He Abides in Us in Trials

The King of Peace is never far away from His people (Hebrews 13:5). We have been constantly told by God in His word that He would never forsake us; He has vowed to stay with us all the way until the end of the world. But why do we have the impression that God has abandoned us at times? It’s possible that the time when you feel abandoned by God was also the time when you abandoned God yourself. It is frequently stated that promises are made in order to be broken, and this is true since we are all human.

“God is not human in the sense that He would lie, nor is He human in the sense that He would alter His mind,” reads Numbers 23:19.

He assured us that He will be with us while we travel through the seas and will not allow us to be carried away by the current.

Deep oceans, rivers of trouble, and a blazing furnace of oppression are all metaphors for natural disasters, which in turn depict the various trials and problems that God permits to occur throughout our lives.

In addition to 1 Chronicles 28:20, Joshua 1:5, Deuteronomy 31:6, 8; Genesis 28:15; Joshua 1:9, and Romans 8:39, other Scripture verses in which God promises to remain in us include Joshua 1:5, Deuteronomy 31:6, 8, and Deuteronomy 31:6, 8.

He Comforts Us in Troubles

The King of Peace provides us with comfort and a place to relax (2 Corinthians 1:3-4). The degree of comfort that God provides us is considerably superior to the level of comfort that we may obtain from this world on a daily basis. To be comforted by God does not always imply that we will be spared from all difficulties in the future. It implies that we are given the strength, encouragement, and hope we need to deal with whatever problem comes our way, and that we may also comfort people who are experiencing difficulties in their lives.

  1. What’s more, you know what?
  2. “All things work together for the benefit of those who love the Lord, to those who have been called according to His purpose,” according to Romans 8:28.
  3. Are you fatigued and burdened by your responsibilities?
  4. Jesus, our King of Peace, not only provides consolation, but he also promises a good night’s sleep.

He Ensures Us His Love

The King of Peace provides us divine assurance of His eternal love by sending us a heavenly message (John 15:13). When God told us that He loved us, He didn’t just say it; He demonstrated His love for us by deliberately giving His life for us. He was under no need to do so, yet He chose to do so in order to reassure us of His love and to ensure our salvation. God has shown us His unfailing love, even when we felt we were unworthy of such a blessing (Romans 5:8). He offered His life in order for us to be reconciled with God and receive access to the Father via His sacrifice.

We only know love and are able to love God because He first loved us and made it possible for us to love Him (1 John 4:19).

In those moments, remember God’s promise that you are more than a conqueror, and that nothing and no one can separate you from the love of God that is found in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 8:38-39).

It is more than merely being triumphant; it is going above and beyond the standard measure of evaluating success.

Due to the fact that Christ lives within us (Galatians 2:20), nothing else can separate us from God’s love and grace.

Nothing can dissuade Him from being with us at all times.

We have relinquished our rights to our former family and have gained the privilege of being guided by the Holy Spirit, and as a result, nothing can separate us from His love for us.

Closing Words

To summarize, Jesus Christ, the King of Peace, is as follows: We are assured of His love because He pardons us of our sins, enlarges our lives, abides with us in trials, comforts us in problems, and abides with us in tribulations. Putting our confidence in God while being prayerful, appreciative, and expressing our request with a trusting heart will undoubtedly result in us receiving the peace that God has for us. “Do not be concerned about anything; instead, in every circumstance, by prayer and supplication, along with thanksgiving, submit your requests to God.” And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will protect your hearts and minds as you trust in Christ.” – Philippians 4:6-7 (NASB) Acceptance of Jesus Christ, the King of Peace Is a decision.
