What peace?

2 King 9:22And it came to pass, when Joram saw Jehu, that he said, Is it peace, Jehu? And he answered, What peace, so long as the whoredoms of thy mother Jezebel and her witchcrafts are so many?

A short background of the above verse: The wicked, ruthless, idolatrous, greedy  family  of Ahab and Jezebel  led Israel in the path of destruction; when the leader is wicked the people tend to follow the Leader. When king Joram, the son of Ahab and Jezebel, king of Israel, saw Jehu, he asked, “Is it peace, Jehu?” Jehu  replied “what peace?”  My title is also ‘what peace?’ Jehu’s question to Joram is a good one for us to consider: “What peace?” How could there be any genuine peace when wicked people rule? When Joram tried to flee,   Jehu killed him with the bow and arrow,  Ahaziah his brother was also killed, Jezebel had already lost her husband Ahab, now having lost her family; finally Jezebel was also thrown down from her window and her blood splashed on the wall and nothing was left other than her skull.  The Bible says : Isaiah 59:8”“They do not know the way of peace, And there is no justice in their tracks; They have made their paths crooked, Whoever treads on them does not know peace.”


Alas! I feel pain while I write this, how many families have come to such a disastrous end because of their wrong doings and presumptuous sins.  Jesus while talking about a house that was not built on the rock said: “….the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell--and great was its fall."(Mathew 7:27)  A young, successful business man, who also had a good, strong body, would take me in his car during ministry, I saw his unrighteous activities and I immediately warned him but he would laugh.  He became richer and richer but one day I got a message that he was killed, alas, his strong body, money or fame could not save him. 


Today Christian Homes are filled with idols, inter-marriage with idol worshippers, video games, pornography, movies, and all kinds of worldly entertainments, even during this pandemic crisis, they are either busy with working online, teaching online, playing online, talking online, chatting online but very few have time for God!  Anybody listening? Where there is no God, there is no love, peace, joy, happiness, forgiveness, endurance, humility and tolerance.  These qualities come from above: James 3:17”But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy.” James 3:16”For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every evil thing.” Jesus is the ONLY way for peace!
