Getting to know God together.

Lots of kids are sad today because things in this world can go wrong. God wants to put an end to all sadness forever and forever. He will do that when Jesus comes back again. David, Tim and Rebecca Blake were sad, they were kids in the same family. A member of their family had died, and it was hurting them inside an awful lot. It happened like this:

Honey, their golden Labrador, was a lovely dog. The Blake family had brought her home when she was a tiny puppy just eight weeks old. Since then she had shared their lives. She slept beside the boy’s beds and went everywhere with the children when they played. She was always being patted and fussed over. She was six and a half years old when the disaster happened. The family was out one Sunday afternoon, having a picnic in the Botanical gardens. Honey was off her lead, there weren’t any cars around, so the family thought. Honey chased a ball across a roadway in the gardens, and a car appeared from nowhere it seemed. It hit poor Honey! There was a horrible sound of “THUD!” and Honey screeched! She was thrown back on the grass, and lay very still. When the children rushed over she gave them one long, loving look, and died! It took a long time for the family to get over their sorrow, and they always remembered their golden dog, Honey. But remembering couldn’t bring her back.

One day there will be no more death at all! No people or animals will die ever again.
God will have everything Perfect then. When King Jesus reigns over all the earth things will be so different that death will hardly ever happen! Not to people or animals.
His reign will not be the Perfect earth yet, but very wonderful indeed! God’s Perfect new earth will be like this:
“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. “(Revelation 21:4).

No more wars when Jesus comes again! He will put away all evil from the earth. You might have seen, on your TV set, children crying because of wars. Lovely little black kids, or some kids in Kosovo. There will be no wars like that when Jesus is King. This is what the Bible tells us about that time:
“...nation shall not lift up a sword against nation (they won’t have guns and tanks fighting against each other), neither shall they learn war any more.” (Micah 4:3).
” In that day...I (God) will break the bow and the sword and the battle out of the earth, and will make them to lie down safely.” (Hosea 2:18).

How about you?

Do you want to find God’s peace today?
Even children can cause little wars around them! Snapping and growling. When we belong to Jesus, when He is our Saviour, we shouldn’t want to “learn war” any more either. You can let God make you a peaceful person, if you trust and obey. Don’t cause a “war” with your brothers or sisters, or Mum and Dad. Don’t fight with others kids at school. Make peace with other people. God is pleased with this kind of behaviour. Every day God wants believers in Him to work hard at making peaceful homes.
How about you?
Will you be a peace-maker, or a war-maker today?
“ ...be at peace among yourselves.” (I Thessalonians 5;13).
“Recompense (pay back) to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men (people).” (Romans 12:17,18).
