  1. Psalms 16:11 > God will “Show me the path of life: in His presence is fullness of joy…” Titus 2:13-14, We are now “Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ [Prince of Peace]; who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all iniquity

  2. Genesis 3:15 > God speaking to Satan in the Garden of Eden:  “And I will put enmity [conflict] between you and the woman [who gave birth to Jesus Christ, Son of God], and between your seed [the future AntiChrist] and her seed [Jesus Christ, Son of God]; He [Jesus, Son of God] shall bruise your head, and you [Satan] shall bruise His heel.” This is the very first Bible prophecy in the Holy Bible.

  3. John 3:16 > “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son [Jesus Christ, Son of God and Prince of Peace], that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” This is a fulfillment of Genesis 3:15. Jesus Christ is the true Prince of Peace and He will someday bring everlasting peace to all nations on earth. He will “bruise” the “head” of Satan and make Satan powerless on earth forever.

  4. Genesis 12:2-3 > God’s everlasting covenant with Abraham. “I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great;… I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you [Abraham, Father of Israel] all the families of the earth [in all nations on earth] shall be blessed.” This great everlasting covenant, from our Heavenly Father, will be accomplished through Jesus Christ, Son of God and Prince of Peace. He is the true Messiah of Israel and today our Lord Jesus Christ now has all power in heaven and on earth.

  5. Matthew 28:18 >  Jesus said, “All power is given unto me [by my Heavenly Father] in heaven and in earth.”

  6. I Corinthians 15:24 > “Then comes the end [of Satan’s kingdom on earth], when He [Jesus Christ, Prince of Peace] delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He [our Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God] puts an end to all [of Satan’s evil] rule and all authority and power.”

  7. Luke 1:79 > There is only one who has the power to give peace to all nations, Jesus Christ, Prince of Peace. As promised Jesus will “… guide our feet into the way of peace.” – Everlasting peace on earth!

  8. Isaiah 9:6 gives us Bible prophecy, which was fulfilled at the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God and “Prince of Peace”: “For unto us a child is born [Jesus Christ], unto us a son is given [Son of God]: and the government [of all nations] shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”

  9. Luke 2:13-14 > At the birth of Jesus Christ, Son of God, “…suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and ON EARTH PEACE, good will toward men.” Baby Jesus was officially pronounced as Prince of Peace – the one who would someday bring peace to all nations on earth. Can you say “Hallelujah” along with all of heaven’s holy and powerful angels?

  10. John 3:17 > “For God sent not his Son [Jesus Christ] into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.” God loves us and wants to give us peace, joy and everlasting happiness.

  11. I John 3:8 > “He that commits sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God [Jesus Christ] was manifested [sent to earth to redeem us from sin], that He might destroy the works of the devil.” What exactly are God’s plans, according to His Word, for bringing everlasting peace on earth?

  12. Revelation 3:10 > Jesus, Prince of Peace, said, “Because you have kept the word of my patience, I also will keep you from the hour of temptation [7-years of Great Tribulation, as described in the Book of Revelation], which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.” Through the future Rapture of the Church, all true Christians will, “in the twinkling of an eye”, be “caught up” to “meet the Lord in the air” – as taught in I Thessalonians 4:17 – “…and so shall we ever be with the Lord [Jesus Christ].”

  13. Luke 21:36 > Jesus taught us to “Watch…and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass [during the future 7-years of Great Tribulation], and to stand before the Son of man [Jesus Christ, Son of God]” – in His kingdom.

  14. Matthew 10:34 > Jesus, Prince of Peace, said, “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.” In the days of Noah, God sent a flood to destroy all sin and sinners on earth. Jesus knew that once again the sin-issue on earth must be destroyed and defeated – prior to having true and everlasting peace on earth in all nations. His “sword” of judgment will be used in “the days of vengeance” [Luke 21:22 and Romans 12:19] to destroy all evil and initiate world peace.

  15. Matthew 24:21 > Jesus Christ, Prince of Peace, knows the future – everything! Concerning the future 7-year Great Tribulation, He said, “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.” The world has never seen devastation such as will be seen when God will pours out His anger and “vengeance” on the future kingdom of the antichrist. The antichrist and all evil will be defeated by Jesus Christ, Prince of Peace, at His 2nd Coming at the future Battle of Armageddon – following the 7-years of Great Tribulation [Revelation 16:16].

  16. All of heaven’s army (saints and angels) will return to earth with Jesus Christ, Prince of Peace, to defeat the army of the antichrist [Revelation 19:14]; at that time the antichrist and false prophet will be sent to the Lake of Fire. Revelation 19:20 confirms, “These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.” Additionally, Satan himself will be powerless on earth for 1,000 years. Revelation 20:1-3 confirms, “And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the Bottomless Pit and [he had] a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, until the thousand years should be fulfilled.” Earth cannot have lasting peace with the presence of Satan.

  17. Jesus and all of the heavenly saints will ride literal white, heavenly horses. Revelation 19:16 describes the Prince of Peace, “And He [Jesus, Son of God] hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”

  18. Immediately following the Battle of Armageddon, our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, the Son of God, will initiate and launch the Whirlwind Judgment of the Nations on earth. God says, in Isaiah 13:11, “And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity.” Jesus called it the separation of the “sheep” (righteous people on earth) and the “goats” (evil people on earth). In Matthew 25:32, Jesus teaches, “And before Him shall be gathered all nations: and He shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats…” [Some Bible references for the futuristic Whirlwind Judgment of the Nations: Jeremiah 25:31-33; Jeremiah 30:23; Isaiah 66:15-16; and, Psalms 58:9]. This judgment from God is used by God to determine who will be worthy to enter into the 1,000 millennium of PEACE with our Lord Jesus Christ, King of kings, and Prince of Peace.

  19. PEACE on EARTH at last! Following the future Battle of Armageddon and God’s Whirlwind Judgment of the Nations, Daniel 7:18 says, “But the saints of the most High [God, our Heavenly Father] shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom forever, even forever and ever.” Jesus will reign as Prince of Peace over all nations on earth. Revelation 2:27 teaches, “He [Jesus, Prince of Peace] shall rule them [all nations on earth] with a rod of iron.” In Revelation 2:26, Jesus promises His church, “And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end [of the evil on earth], to him will I give power over the nations…” [Also, see Daniel 7:27]

  20. Israel will be restored and will be the head of all nations – as promised in God’s Covenant to Abraham. Read the prophecy, which God showed Ezekiel (chapter 37) in a cemetery filled with the bones of the people of Israel. In Ezekiel 37:14, God promised Israel that He would, “…put my Spirit in you and you shall live, and I shall place you in your own land.” [also, see Matthew 24:31 and Isaiah 11:12 where God will send His angels at the sounding of a “trumpet” and will gather Israel from all nations on earth where they have been scattered for many years]

  21. God will build a literal highway from Egypt; to Israel; and, onward into Syria. Why? What is the purpose of this highway? Isaiah 11:16 teaches, “And there shall be an highway for the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day that he [Israel] came up out of the land of Egypt [from slavery when God delivered them]. Isaiah 19:23 continues, “In that day [of the Prince of Peace, Messiah of Israel, Jesus Christ] shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serve with the Assyrians.” Yes, these nations will be friends at that time.

 

22.  Therefore, God will remind Israel how He delivered them from slavery by dividing the water of the Red Sea and drying the ground for Israel’s escape from Egypt. Note what God will do to remind Israel as they gather once again in Egypt at the beginning of King Jesus’s 1,000 reign as Prince of Peace and King of kings over all nations on earth: Isaiah 11:15-16 confirms, “…And the LORD shall utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea [Red Sea]; and with his mighty wind shall he shake his hand over the river [Nile River of Egypt], and shall smite it in the seven streams, and make men go over dryshod [on dry ground]. And there shall be a highway for the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.” This highway will be called “The Highway of Holiness” according to Isaiah 35:8, “And a highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The Way of Holiness; the unclean [sinners] shall not pass over it…”

23.  Remember the song, “When the Saints Go Marching In”? Millions will march with King Jesus, Son of God and Prince of Peace, down the Highway of Holiness, into Israel. It will be the greatest celebration ever on earth. Isaiah 55:12 says, “For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace…” Then, Isaiah 51:11 confirms, “Therefore the redeemed of the LORD shall return [to Israel], and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.”

24.  King Jesus, Prince of Peace, and His “Covenant of Peace” with Israel: Ezekiel 37:26-28 “…I will make a Covenant of Peace with them [Israel]; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary [Millennial Temple] in the midst of them for evermore. My tabernacle [Temple] also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people. And the heathen [sinners] shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary [Temple] shall be in the midst of them for evermore.”

25.  Now, you understand how King Jesus, Prince of Peace and Son of God, will launch His 1,000 year Millennial Reign as King of kings over all nations on earth. At last, all in Israel will accept our Lord Jesus Christ as Messiah of Israel. This will be the beginning of 1,000 years of Peace on Earth under the world government of King Jesus. Isaiah 40:5 promises, “And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh [all nations] shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

26.  Please read the last nine chapters of the Book of Ezekiel. God gives us an overview of King Jesus’s future Millennial Temple; the exact location of the Temple; and, the 50 square mile Holy Oblation sacred grounds where Israel’s priests will officiate for 1,000 years as the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ, rules all of the nations on earth. Psalms 46:9-10 says, “He [Jesus, Prince of Peace] makes wars to cease unto the end of the earth… I will be exalted in the earth.” God says in Isaiah 65:19, “And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying.”

27.  Heavenly saints, who return to earth with King Jesus, Prince of Peace, at His 2nd Coming at the Battle of Armageddon, will remain on earth to reign with him over the nations. Revelation 5:10 says, “And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.” [also, see Revelation 1:6]

28.  Do you remember the two golden angelic beings on the Ark of the Covenant, which was in the Tabernacle and Temple of the Old Testament? In King Jesus’s Millennial Temple, there will be two literal “cherubims” with Jesus as He sits upon His throne. Psalms 99:1 confirms, “The LORD [Jesus Christ, Prince of Peace] reigneth; let the people tremble: He sits between the cherubims; let the earth be moved.” Also, read Isaiah, chapter six. [Note: In Revelation, chapter 4, God shows us four angelic cherubim as they continually, day and night, worship and give praise to our Heavenly Father and our Lord Jesus Christ, Prince of Peace.

29.  [Ezekiel 47] Flowing from the Millennial Temple, King Jesus, Prince of Peace, will have His Millennial River, which will flow southward to the Millennial City of Jerusalem; then, onward to the Dead Sea, which will no longer be dead – it will have many lively fish; and then, the Millennial River will flow into the Mediterranean Sea. Psalms 46:4 teaches us, “There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the [Millennial] city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.”

30.  I Corinthians 15:25 says, “For He [Jesus Christ, Prince of Peace] must reign, until He has put all enemies under his feet.”

31.  Psalms 72:13 shows how King Jesus, Prince of Peace, will have compassion and help the “poor and needy”. “He shall spare the poor and needy, and shall save the souls of the needy.” Psalms 72:19 says, “And blessed be his glorious name for ever: and let the whole earth be filled with his glory; Amen, and Amen.” Isaiah 29:19 teaches, “…the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel” [Jesus Christ, Prince of Peace]. And, Isaiah 41:17 adds, “When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue fails with thirst, I the LORD will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them.”

32.  Today, there are many different types of churches and church doctrine. It will not always be so. Jesus Christ, Prince of Peace, will have a peaceful and united church with no false teachings. Isaiah 29:24 confirms, “They also that erred in spirit [were taught false teachings] shall come to understanding [of truth from God], and they that murmured [rebelled against truth] shall learn [true] doctrine.”

33.  Nations will travel to Israel continually, year-to-year, for 1,000 years, to “worship the King”, Jesus Christ, Prince of Peace. Zechariah 14:16 reveals, “And it shall come to pass, thatthe nations… shall even go up from year to year to worship the King [Jesus Christ, Prince of Peace], the LORD of Hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles.”

34.  Millions will be divinely healed of all sickness – and, gloriously saved by the shed blood of Jesus, Prince of Peace, as they visit Israel. Isaiah 33:24 confirms, “And the inhabitant [all who visit or live in Israel] shall not say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity [sins].”

35.  Isaiah 9:7 expounds, “Of the increase of His [King Jesus’s] government and peace there shall be no end…upon the throne of David, and upon His kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.”

36.  Zechariah 6:13 shows that King Jesus, Prince of Peace, “… He shall build the Temple of the LORD [His Millennial Temple]; and He shall bear the glory, and He shall sit and rule upon His throne; and He shall be a [most high] priest upon His throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between them both” [speaking of Jesus and Israel].

37.  The great Prince of Peace, King Jesus, Son of God, will very quickly be known in all nations on earth. All will respect His authority as the true Peacemaker, who tolerates no evil and no wars. Zechariah 8:22 confirms, “Yes, many people and strong nations shall come to seek the LORD of hosts in Jerusalem, and to pray before the LORD.” Philippians 2:10-11 teaches, “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow…And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the [Heavenly] Father.”

38.  God will be greatly glorified on the earth through His “only begotten son”, Jesus Christ, Prince of Peace [John 3:16]. Consider Numbers 14:21, which says, “But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the LORD.” Also, consider God’s glory, which is continually noted in Israel for the 1,000 year Millennium of King Jesus, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 4:5 confirms, “And the LORD will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion [in Israel], and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night: for upon all the glory shall be a defence [for God’s divine protection for all of the Nation of Israel].” Also, Isaiah 6:3 adds, “And one [Angelic Cherubim] cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.” Hallelujah, glory to God. What a joyous and peaceful 1,000 years on earth that we will all experience when Jesus Christ, Son of God and Prince of Peace reigns as King of all kings.

39.  Today, Israel is awaiting their Messiah, Prince of Peace; however, many do not accept the fact that Jesus Christ, Son of God, will be the future Messiah of Israel to bring everlasting peace and joy to Israel. The day will come when “…it shall be said in that day [by all of Israel], Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation” [please see Isaiah 25:9]. May we all continue to pray for the peace of Jerusalem and all of Israel. All that God has promised in His Word “shall come to pass” for bringing Peace on Earth to all nations on earth.

40.  Jesus Christ, Son of God, is alive today and He will return to earth again as the Prince of Peace. He will be King of kings over all nations on earth for 1,000 years. Isaiah 24:23 confirms, “…the LORD of hosts [Jesus Christ] shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.”

41.  If you have no peace and happiness in your life today, Jesus Christ, Prince of Peace, can give you His peace and hope right now. Romans 8:18 teaches, “…that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory [of God] which shall be revealed in us.” And, I John 3:8 teaches us, “For this purpose the Son of God [Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ] was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.” It is God’s divine will for you to have His peace and joy in your life today. I John 1:9 teaches us how to become a Christian and be born into the Family of God: “If we confess our sins, He [God] is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” If you want God’s peace, love and forgiveness of sin in your life, please pray this prayer with me today: “Heavenly Father, thank you for sending your son Jesus Christ, who shed His blood for the forgiveness of my sins. I accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior and ask you Heavenly Father to forgive me of all sin. Thank you Heavenly Father for your love and peace. May your divine will be done always “on earth, as it is in heaven” – AMEN.

42.  In closing, God gives us encouragement in His Word, in Romans 16:20, “The God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly [that is, in God’s own appointed time]. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.”
