Peace On Earth?
“11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Baby wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: 14 “Glory to God in the highest, And ON EARTHPEACE, goodwill toward men!”
In Luke 2:14, the Angelic multitude who stated “Glory to God in the highest, And ON EARTH PEACE…” reverberated the profundity of our void. What the Angels communicated in the proclamation upon the birth of Christ Jesus, was rather the source or the reason for peace on earth to all men. But, the peace that we expected is different from the peace that had come. Jesus says in Matthew 10:34: “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.”
