A CONSERVATIVE CHOICE FOR THE MINORITY'S VOICE

Peace Rally


By Rev. Donald Stevens, Chaplain

Sergeant Major of the Ministry

WHEN WE THINK ABOUT PEACE WE LOOK TO THE HOLY SCRIPTURES, { THE BIBLE } JESUS SAID IN THE
GOSPEL OF JOHN ,THE 14TH CHAPTER VERSE 27.  ” PEACE I LEAVE WITH YOU, MY PEACE I GIVE TO YOU: NOT AS THE WORLD GIVETH,GIVE I UNTO YOU.  LET NOT YOUR HEART BE TROUBLED, NEITHER LET IT BE AFRAID.

THE PEACE OF CHRIST IS A PEACE OF RECONCILIATION AND OF LOVE.  ISAIAH 9:6 CALLS HIM WONDERFUL COUNSELOR,THE MIGHTY GOD, THE EVERLASTING FATHER,THE PRINCE OF PEACE.   IN
THESE LAST DAYS AND TIMES THE NEED FOR GOD’S PEACE AND RECONCILIATION IS NEEDED MORE NOW THAN EVER!

ESPECIALLY WITHIN THE BODY OF CHRIST.  AS WE HUMBLY EMBARK UPON THIS TREMENDOUS TASK
WE LOOK TO OUR GOD, FOR OUR GOD IS BIGGER THAN ANY SITUATION, CIRCUMSTANCE, PROBLEM OR TASK THAT WE COULD EVER THINK OF.

JOSHUA AND CALEB  AS THEY WERE ADDRESSING THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL,WHEN THEY SPIED OUT
THE LAND THAT GOD HAD GIVEN TO THEM.  IF THE LORD DELIGHT IN US, THEN HE WILL BRING US INTO THIS LAND, AND GIVE IT US; A LAND FLOWETH WITH MILK AND HONEY.

EVENTHOUGH THE LAND WAS FILLED WITH GIANTS { THE SONS OF ANAK }  THEY KNEW IF GOD BE FOR THEM WHO COULD STAND AGAINST THEM,  THEY KNEW THE THINGS WHICH ARE IMPOSSIBLE WITH MEN ARE POSSIBLE WITH GOD! { LUKE 18:27 }

IT IS BECAUSE ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH GOD THAT WE HAVE HOPE, BLESSED HOPE.   THIS
PEACE RALLY IS TO REACH OUT TO OUR COMMUNITY, THE MEN WOMEN AND CHILDREN THAT MAKE UP THIS COMMUNITY.  TO LET THEM KNOW THERE IS A BETTER WAY.

THAT BETTER WAY IS IN CHRIST.  I AM CONVINCED BEYOND A SHADOW OF DOUBT, THAT IF THE FAMILY RETURN TO THE CORE VALUES THAT ARE IN THE BIBLE TAUGHT BY OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST,  THAT THERE WILL BE LESS STABBINGS, SHOOTINGS, KILLINGS AND DYINGS.

FOR IF YOU MUST STAB, YOU WILL TAKE A STAB AT SHOWING SOME MERCY AND COMPASSION
IF YOU MUST SHOOT, SHOOT FOR THE PRIZE OF THE HIGH CALLING IN CHRIST JESUS, AND I GUARANTEE YOU WILL HIT THE BULLSEYE EVERY TIME.

IF YOU MUST KILL, KILL WILL KINDNESS.   IF YOU MUST DIE, DIE TO SELF DAILY SO THAT YOU MIGHT HAVE LIFE AND HAVE IT MORE ABUNTANTLY!   MEN WE MUST TAKE A MORE ACTIVE ROLE IN OUR FAMILIES,  DON’T JUST SEND YOUR CHILDREN TO CHURCH, TAKE THEM TO CHURCH!  TAKE THE ENTIRE
FAMILY.

IF THEY SEE YOU SERVING GOD,THEY WILL ALSO SERVE GOD!  JOSHUA 24:15 SAYS ” CHOOSE YOU
THIS DAY WHOM YOU WILL SERVE: BUT AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE WE WILL SERVE THE LORD!
