The Ultimate Solution

The LORD will settle international disputes.  All nations will beat their swords into plowshares and spears into pruning hooks. All wars will stop, and military training will come to an end.  Come, people of Israel, let us walk in the light of the LORD!  ISAIAH 2:4-5 NLT 


Military solutions fail—
     “The war to end all wars” (H. G. Wells) has not yet been fought.
Political solutions fail—
     Platforms articulate high-sounding goals, yet rarely achieve them.
Economic solutions fail—
     Rich and poor live on opposite track sides, and inequity continues.
The best humans can do to fix the world’s problems is not good enough.

The return of My Son is the ultimate solution to war.
     Millions have died in the holocaust and carnage of combat;
          but when Christ puts His foot down on the Mount of Olives,
          the human situation will at last change for the better.
     Walk in My Light and do not sit out My dance in despair—live hopefully.

The love of My Son is the ultimate solution to guilt.
     His cross work makes you more than okay—you are the apple of My eye.
     Relying on the Prince of Peace, your heart is tranquilized and poised.
     Walk in My Light and do not trudge in self-condemnation—live freely.

The power of My Son is the ultimate solution to sin.
     Addiction to evil brings misery, but Christ is the Key to freedom.
     Stay focused on Him, and you will enjoy perfect peace.
     Walk in My Light and stay out of the darkness—live victoriously.

The reign of My Son is the ultimate solution to unrest.
     Dependence on technology disappoints; so does relying on money.
     Want peace of mind? Resign as General Manager of the universe.
     Walk in My Light and do not stumble in the dark—live peacefully.
