When the Nations Say, "Peace and Safety"

The world wants to find peace its own way, not the Lord’s way. The world will work hard for its own solutions and see a measure of success, so much so that they will proclaim that they have finally found peace without the Lord. Then Paul warns, “For when they say, ‘Peace and safety!’ then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape” (1 Thessalonians 5:3).
Paul spoke of the Second Coming of Christ, the time when He returns to the earth to destroy it and to take His followers into heaven.
Do you seek the world’s peace or the peace of Christ?
