When Jesus was born, the angels proclaimed "peace on earth." Hundreds of years beforehand, prophets said the messiah would come bring peace. But after 2000 years, the earth has no peace. Wars, strife, division, and sufferings characterize our world, just as they always have. And in some ways, the stats show it's getting worse, rather than better! So what are we to make of this stark contrast between the promise of peace and the reality we live in? In this teaching, we dive headlong into this critical question. We look at ancient prophecies and see how they are and will be fully fulfilled in the two Advents of the Messiah. We also see our part in mediating that peace to our neighbors while we await Jesus' return.
