FATHER’S Second Redemptive Promise

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Judges chapter 6:

23 Then the LORD said to him, “Peace be with you; do not fear, you shall not die.”

24 So Gideon built an altar there to the LORD, and called it The-LORD-Is-Peace (Jehovah Shalom). To this day it is still in Ophrah of the Abiezrites.

FATHER has given us a promise of peace in our hearts and only after our redemption are we able to experience true peace.  Gideon was living in fear of the Midianites and was in hiding when FATHER gave him the revelation of HIS peace.  The adversary wants us to live in fear, uncertainty, and doubt thus steering us away from being in faith.  If you and I are fearful about anything then we must focus our attention on this redemptive promise given by FATHER.  Through Our Lord Jesus Christ comes this promise of peace.  Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in Ephesians chapter 2:

14 For He Himself (Jesus Christ) is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation,

15 having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is,the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace,

16 and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity.

17 And He came and preached peace to you who were afar off and to those who were near.

18 For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father.

The foundation of our peace comes from us having unfettered access to FATHER by THE SPIRT.  The wall of separation is gone and we must not let doubt cause us to believe that there is some barrier between FATHER and us.  We are Sons and Daughters and are no longer afar off.  FATHER looks forward to communing with us but HE will not force us to come before HIM.  It is up to each of us to embrace this second redemptive promise of peace in our life.  As our trust in FATHER increases, which comes by hearing and meditating on HIS Word, peace will overtake the turmoil and uncertainty.

By THE SPIRIT, Paul wrote in Colossians chapter 1:

19 For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell,

20 and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.

21 And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled

22 in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight

23 if indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel which you heard, which was preached to every creature under heaven, of which I, Paul, became a minister.

Our peace came solely through the blood of His cross and no other path will satisfy the requirement which enables us to come before FATHER.  We are now holy, blameless, and above reproach.  We must embrace this Truth by continuing in the faith by being grounded and steadfast.  As we become doers of The Word, we will not grow cold or distant.  We will no longer listen to the accuser who can only appeal to our worldly logic where he can plant seeds of doubt.  Let us not move away from the hope of The Gospel but instead move closer to FATHER WHO calls HIMSELF Jehovah Shalom!
