  • How can a man have peace ?

    "As long as a man is alive and out of hell, he cannot have any

    cause to complain."

    - Charles Spurgeon

    "Peace is not something! Peace is a person!! The world will never

    know peace without Jesus Christ!!!"

    Nicholas Duncan Williams

    "A born-again person ought to possess unspeakable peace in the spirit."

    - Watchman Nee

    "Peace comes when there is no cloud between us and God. Peace

    is the consequence of forgiveness, God's removal of that which

    obscures His face and so breaks union with Him."

    - Charles H. Brent

    "No one can have the peace of God until they are at peace with God."

    - Jack Wellman

    "Because of the empty tomb, we have peace. Because of His

    resurrection, we can have peace during even the most troubling of

    times because we know He is in control of all that happens in the world."

    - Paul Chappell

    "When you stop worrying about your problems and start praising

    God for His magnificent power you will experience His peace."

    -Susan Elizabeth George

    "The kingdom of God is righteousness and peace. True wisdom

    is never argumentative or quarrelsome. It does not strive. It maintains

    harmonious relationships with everyone, as far as possible. It is

    impossible to quarrel with a man who is filled with Divine wisdom,

    for such a man is a peaceable man."

    - Zac Poonen

    "An unpeaceful mind cannot operate normally. Hence the Apostle

    teaches us to "have no anxiety about anything" (Phil. 4:6). Deliver

    all anxious thoughts to God as soon as they arise. Let the peace

    of God maintain your heart and mind
    (v. 7)."

    - Watchman Nee

    Responding to the Wonderful Quotes About Peace

    Zechariah 3.8-10 ESV

    8 Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, you and your friends who sit before you, for they are men who are a sign: behold, I will bring my servant the Branch. 9 For behold, on the stone that I have set before Joshua, on a single stone with seven eyes, I will engrave its inscription, declares the Lord of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of this land in a single day. 10 In that day, declares the Lord of hosts, every one of you will invite his neighbor to come under his vine and under his fig tree.”


    For the ancient Hebrew sitting with the neighbors in the shade of the vineyard or fig tree represented peace. This may be observed in 1 Kings 4:25 ESV.

    25 And Judah and Israel lived in safety, from Dan even to Beersheba, every man under his vine and under his fig tree, all the days of Solomon; (Note: King Solomon's reign was a period of peace and prosperity.)
    and in Micah 4:4 ESV

    4 but they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree,
    and no one shall make them afraid,
    for the mouth of the Lord of hosts has spoken.

    and in 2 Kings 18:31 and Isaiah 36:16 ESV

    31 Do not listen to Hezekiah, for thus says the king of Assyria: ‘Make your peace with me and come out to me. Then each one of you will eat of his own vine, and each one of his own fig tree, and each one of you will drink the water of his own cistern,

    Comment: Referencing Zechariah 3:6-10.

    Peace for Israel is dependent upon the LORD's "servant the Branch" (verse 8). The Branch is an often-used symbol for the Messiah as being a shoot from the linage of King David (Branch referring to the Messiah is found in Zachariah 3:8; 6:12; Isaiah 11:1; Jeremiah 23:5; 33:15).

    The stone (verse 9) is another allusion to the Messiah (Daniel 2:34-35; Revelation 18:21).

    The seven eyes (verse 9) attributes omniscience to the stone which represents the Messiah. Seven being the number for complete or in this case the entirety. The Messiah sees and knows all. This is the same idea of the seven eyes of the Lamb in Revelation 5:6 and in other verses of Revelation (4:6,8) where the living creatures in the vision are covered with eyes - a symbol for omniscience.


    Peace is being under the omniscience of the Messiah.

    He is the vine and fig tree we sit under for earthly peace and for eternal peace.
