What is peace? Is it the opposite of war? Is it genuine or false?
Jesus is called the Prince of Peace. We are said to be kept in perfect peace. The word shalom (peace) embodies wholeness and healing, and this guards and protects us.
To declare peace :
- Tell those around you (using words or not) that God’s redeeming-healing-kingdom is near.
- Reject any claims and holds of the enemy because of Jesus and what he has done.
- Invite God’s wholeness and healing into your life and the lives of others.
A declaration of peace is a declaration of wholeness and healing and an offer of the King’s protection.
