As I looked at “7 Hebrew Words Every Christian Should Know”
Day 5 shared:
SHALOM: Which means PEACE.
The devoted thought went on to explain,
“Whenever I imagine the city of Jerusalem in Bible times, I picture it being like NYC – loud, chaotic, busy … even messy and violent. But this was not God’s plan for a place known as His Holy City.”
The word Jerusalem in Hebrew is Yerushalayim which is made up of two Hebrew words; yeru which means “you will see” and shalom which means “the peace of God“.
So Jerusalem is supposed to be the place where you will see the peace of God.
In the Book of Revelation we read that the followers of God will live in a “new Jerusalem” in God’s Kingdom – and we will see the peace of God.
Jesus told his followers that
“… the Kingdom of God is within you”,
which means the “peace of God” is within us.
Will the the people around you see and experience the peace of God today because of you?
Personal note, U.S.A. is in the middle of that word/name Jerusalem. Will you, American, see God’s peace?
America, bless God.
In Christ, Beetle
