 Hi, Are you a peacemaker producing peace from the wealth of peace within? If you are then youare blessed. War making or a bottled up state of war within people; is the prime cause of death.Death entered this world through the misuse of man’s free will and the abuse of power, do-minion and rule over the creation. The Bible speaks of the sons of God, but not to get you going into a world of fantasy as thesupposed fall of Lucifer and his supposed angels, for that in itself is sensationalism, whichonly strengthens the natural man thus hastening his demise.
[Romans 8:19-21] The anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of  the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself also will be set free from its slav-ery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God.
 We read in Genesis 6:3 that clearly God was forced to limit the years of human life becauseHis own sons (Adam and his sons) corrupted themselves after they had joined the fleshly non-Adamic people. At that time the Bible mentions no daughters who were born later, butonly sons. Then the LORD said,
“My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, because he also isflesh; nevertheless his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.” 
 Watch the word ALSO. Adam was eternal and was not meant to suffer any termination of life; and so were his children also. But instead of triumphing over the fleshly war-like ten-dencies—which entered his genes through the mix with other people—they let themselvesslide into depravity. Depravity is basically a belligerent state, for contentiousness, animal-liketerritoriality and aggression is clearly war-like.

  As we go further into the causes of death on earth your eyes shall be opened, and with yourpermission you will be invited to become a peacemaker in a real sense of the word. Jesus said in Matthew 5:9
“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.”
Happy, lucky, fortunate and rich in God’s grace are the peacemakers as opposed to war-makers who only see the limited territory over which they readily fight. But the wordCALLED (Greek 
καλέω
, (kale
ō
 ) can be used in a variety of applications, directly or other- wise; like to bid or summon or even invite, to call forth or to name. In the above verse theNASB translates it as CALL, also KJV. As we come closer to understanding that one short verse; we extract from it very rich meaning like this one: we are called to be peacemakers, weare invited to lay aside our war like ways by seeing higher and better reality. The proverbial turning of a cheek; giving a shirt when one is asked for a coat, or going twomiles when one is being asked to go just one clearly speaks of sonship and of course thepeacemakers.
[Matthew 5:9] “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.”
 Jesus continued to expound upon the truth of peacemaking.
[40-41] “If anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, let him have your coat also. And whoever forces you to go one mile, go with him two.”
It is not doing something by force or dry obedience to His word for that in itself is only re-ligion. At the end of this chapter Jesus said that the Gentiles do that for they act like slaves when they are told to; or act the natural way, which is to greet back when one is greeted, andreturn love when one is shown love.God chose Israel to be the light unto the Gentiles, (Isaiah 42:6) hence it was Israel that wascalled to be the initiator of peace, joy, love and blessing. Someone must start doing it.NOTE: A Jewish man of Alexandria in Egypt wrote the Book of Wisdom. He was a pure Jew, not a Kenite, and his primary reason for writing was the edification of his fellow broth-ers in faith in times of suffering and oppression at the hands of apostate fellow Jews. Hisname is not known, but like Sirach he was a peacemaker. The evidence of this is his compas-sion, encouragement and wisdom.
[42-43] “Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to bor-row from you.
One is the standard, having the attitude of a peacemaker rather than doing something in or-der to glean vain satisfaction. Many humanists today do good works; some do it from theheart while others do it for an appeasement of those restless thoughts and troubled feelings.Still, others do it to raise more funds and in the process make a living out of charity.

[43-45] “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate yourenemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.”
“Love your enemy?” “But how Lord? Please tell me.”“It’s simple,” said the Lord. “When you are a peacemaker you are also a healer. Anyone har-boring any sentiments of animosity can be healed of that dreadful malady; providing thatthey come to you. When the sick comes to you the peacemaker then quite naturally you healhim or her and then that person can even become your friend.”If we have Satan, the devil and his supposed army of demons as our enemy (in our mind) weare a long way away from becoming and being peacemakers. Study Jesus and you will know.Sometimes you must even part with theology to rise higher just as Jesus had challenged Hisown disciples in Matthew 5. The general population of Palestine adhered to the standard Ju-daism as prescribed by the teachers of the law of that time. But then came a rabbi from Gali-lee who started challenging people with His new teaching bidding them to go beyond thelegal and theological boundaries. Jesus raised the bar and those that were deep in their “cor-rect” theology told the rest that He is in error and that He misleads the people. Go figure.
[46-47] “For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? “If you greet only your brothers, what more are youdoing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same?”
In the same way, if one throws a stone at you then quite naturally so you would also look fora stone to hurl it back at the stone thrower. A kind smile returns a kind smile. But as I justsaid above, one must initiate and pave the way. One must draw from his or her own store-room of peace and heal humanity of their warmongering ways, from which worries for thedaily bread come, which is the evidence of living out the curse. That cure has been atonedfor and removed at the cross of Jesus. It’s done, but do you know that or still entertain thosereligious surface beliefs? Did it sink into your mind, soul and spirit? Has it become the new system that affects your very being? Wherever the peacemaker walks that place is being redeemed. The earth stops crying toheaven because of the spilled blood. One atones for the sins of others. That’s greatly pleas-ing to God; for in so doing one is indeed His son.
[49] “Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”
 The perfection is not in singing unto God “Mighty Warrior!” Have you ever heard anyonepraising God for being the peacemaker? “I praise you for You are peace.” We sing wordslike these “You are MY peace.” As if I am restless and troubled so I need peace, which sortof comes and goes, from sermon to sermon and from song to song…God in heaven is perfect and we here on earth can be like Him again just as we once were,before we transgressed and have not repented yet. Once you repent and return to Him you will lay aside the implements of warmongering.
[Isaiah 2:4] “They will hammer their swords into plowshares and their spears into prun-
