Author of Peace

"For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints." (1 Corinthians 14:33)

Although these words were written with respect to church order, they express a general principle. "This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated . . . . And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace" (James 3:15-18).

Our world, and our natural lives, seem perpetually in confusion, turmoil, and strife, and the source is the evil one--"the god of this world" (2 Corinthians 4:4). The only one who can bring true peace is the Author of peace.

This is none other than the Lord Jesus Christ, for only "he is our peace" (Ephesians 2:14). He is the Author of peace, just as the devil is the author of all confusion and strife. Note the other titles of our great Author of peace.

He is called "the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus" (Hebrews 13:20). He is also "The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace" (Isaiah 9:6). Melchizedek, who was at least a type of Christ, if not an actual pre-incarnate theophany of Christ Himself, is called "King of Salem, which is, King of peace" (Hebrews 7:2). In 2 Thessalonians 3:16, He is "the Lord of peace."

He is the Author of peace, the Lord of peace, the Prince of peace, the King of peace, the very God of peace! He is our peace! Some day, "he shall speak peace unto the heathen: and his dominion shall be from sea even to sea, and from the river even to the ends of the earth" (Zechariah 9:10). In that day, "the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly" (Romans 16:20), and "Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end" (Isaiah 9:7). HMM
