Matt 5:9
Blessed are the PEACEMAKERS for they shall be called the children of God.

After this month's scriptures, will you ever think the same about this scripture again?

Being a peacemaker is more than saying, "You kids quit fighting."
Or
"Can't we all get along."
or
"The country with the most weapons of mass destruction will be the country that will 'keep the peace.'"

To be a true peacemaker, your own heart and thoughts need to be at peace. When you are at peace, it is easier to help others be at peace.

Moses 6:61-62
Therefore it is given to abide in you; the record of heaven, the Comforter, THE PEACEABLE THING OF IMMORTAL GLORY; the truth of all things; that which quickeneth all things, which maketh alive all things; that which knoweth all things, and hath all powere according to wisdom, mercy, truth, justice and judgement.
And now, behold, I say unto you: This is the plan of salvation unto all men, through the blood of mine Only Begotten, who shall come in the meridian of time.

Truly the plan of salvation gives peace to our immortal soul. How comforting it is to know and understand when we are grieving for someone we have lost to death!

If you have ever been around someone who has heard the plan of salvation for the very first time, you can see in their face a great feeling of relief and peace come over their countenance. It is such a thrill to watch.

A littel background on this scripture. It is the vision of President Joseph F. Smith. He is seeing the Spirit World and sees the Savior going to preach to the righteous Spirits. But unto the wicked he didn't go.
D&C 138:22-24
Where these were darkness reigned,BUT UNTO THE RIGHTEOUS THERE WAS PEACE.
And the saints rejoince in their redemption, and bowed the knee and acknowledged the Son of God as their Redeemer and Deliverer from death and the chains of hell.
Their countenances shone and the radiance from the presend of the Lord rested upon them, and they sang praises unto his holy name.

FYI: There is an article in the December 2009 Ensign about background of this vision. He talked about the background of Joseph F. Smith and the world conditions at that time. I was very impressed about how this vision brought peace not only to President Joseph F. Smith, but also to the church and even to the entire world.

The Lord's timing is impeccable when it comes to giving words of comfort and peace.

I had anticipated writing another scripture today, but yesterday in my own scripture reading I came across this one and I decided to use this one instead.

3 Nephi 22:13
And all thy children shall be taught of the Lord: and great shall be the PEACE of thy children.

With all that is going on the world, wars and rumors of wars. Nightly news that talks of violence. Movies with violence and bullying as all part of life. The recession and the financial worries that go along with it. And then the trials that each of us has to face as part of our own mortality, it is easy for our children to be fearful and full of disturbing thoughts.

The cure is to teach your children the gospel of peace. Teach the children that for those who trust Christ and his promises will have a peace that knows no understanding, a peace that can be present even in the most disturbing and chaotic of times.

Just a few verses earlier we come to this comforting message about peace.

Verse 9- ...for I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth, so have I sworn that I could not be wroth with thee.
10- For the mountains shall depart and the hills be removed, but my kindness shall not depart from thee, NEITHER SHALL THE COVENANT OF PEACE be removed saith the Lord that hath mercy on thee.

I have appreciated these, especially the last couple, and most especially today's.
A couple of years ago (I can't remember if this was while I was working there, or afterwards) I found today's scripture printed out & framed at DI.
Iit soo reminded me of my DH, and all he'd gone through up to that point.... so I bought it & it's been hanign in our living room ever since. Little did I know then exactly how much that scripture would be able to apply to BOTH of our lives.... since then DH (now 36) has had one back surgery, and very likely will be having another very soon, along with all the other things he as a person with multiple disabilities has to deal with on a daily basis.

I also didn't know the history behind that scripture. I figured out that it was referring to Joseph Smith, but that's all. Only later did I learn the history surrounding that scripture. It was given him in Mach 1839, while being held at Liberty jail, which, if I remember right, was one of the darkest, most challenging times of his life. Just over 5 years later is when he was killed while in Carthage jail.
That man had to have known the peace of the gospel in order to endure the things he endured.

D&C 6:23
Did I not speak peace to your mind concerning the matter? What greater witness can you have than from God?

I love this scripture. How many times have you been caught in the crossroads wondering which direction to go. You choose a direction and pray about it and you are filled with peace for the decision?

Or you want to know, is the church really true or does it really matter what church you belong to, or should you look for another? Then you pray about it and you are filled with peace.

I remember back in the days when my daughter was going to college she called me up one day and told me she was so confused about what she should major in. She said something like this, "I feel peace about my decision on my major until I talk to my roommates and then I become so confused."
I told her to step back and listen to what she said. Whenever you feel at peace about something, don't let others people try to talk you out of it.That is when you will feel confusion. She stayed with the major and it has served her well.

Peace is always you answer that you are choosing the correct path.

This is a good scripture to remember when our minds torture us with how dumb, stupid, fat, or misrable we are.

Alma 38:8
And it came to pass that I was three days and three nights in the most bitter pain and anguish of soul; and never until I did cry out unto the Lord Jesus Christ for mercy, did I receive a remission of my sins. BUT BEHOLD, I DID CRY UNTO HIM AND I DID FIND PEACE TO MY SOUL.

And above all things, clothe yourselves with the bond of charity, as with a mantle, which is the bond of perectness and PEACE.

Psalms 29:11
The Lord will give strength unto his people; the Lord will bless his people with peace.

A small diversion from the topic;
Sunday, our Sunday School lesson was on taking upon us the whole armor of God.
The teacher pointed out that to the way to put on that armor was to pray and ask for it. We should never leave our house without first praying to have the safety of the armor of God on us.

I was reading the scriptures about the armor when I came across this scripture also.

Eph 27:13-15
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that you may be able to withstand the evil day, and having all to stand.
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having the breastplate of righteousness.
And your feet shod with the preparation of the GOSPEL OF PEACE.

Mosiah 27:4
That they should let no pride nor hautiness DISTURB THEIR PEACE; the every man should esteem his neighbor as himself, laboring with their own hands for their support.

How we think of and treat other people can effect our own peace. Today evaluate how you think of and treat others.

I have noticed it is not always thinking I am better than others that disturbs my peace. This time of year when we are decorating, giving gifts, doing activities etc., sometimes we are doing them to look good in what we believe other people's eyes. We want to be "good enough" etc. That too can destroy our peace.

I once heard a quote that went like this
Grace is God's love for me.
Faith is my acceptance of God's love for me.
Peace is my acceptance of me.

Words of Mormon 1:17-18
For behold, King Benjamin was a holy man, and he did reign over his people in righteousness; and there were many holy men in the land, and they did speak the word of God with power and authority; and they did use much sharpness because of the stiffneckedness of the people-
Wherefore, with the help of these, King Benjamin, by laboring with all the might of his body and the faculty of his whole soul, and also the prophets, DID ONCE MORE ESTABLISH PEACE IN THE LAND.

After reading this scripture I realize that peace doesn't just happen. Peace is something we have to work at.

You might be interested to know that sharpness does not mean anger or hurtful words.
When you think of the word sharp, think as though you are looking at a photograph.

Sharp = clear, focused, to the point, easy to see, etc.

In other words when we teach the word of God, we should teach in a clear focused way. To make the word of God easy to understand. We should not try to complicate it, and cloud the word of God in intellectualism.

We learn from this scripture that peace doesn't just fall upon us, it requires work. And the work that we need to do to bring peace to the land is to teach others in a clear, easy to understand way, the word of God.

Mosiah 4:2-3
And they all viewed themselves in their own carnal state, even less than the dust of the earth. And they all cried with one voice, saying: O have mercy, and apply the atoning blood of Jesus Christ that we may receive forgiveness of our sins, and our hearts be purified, for we believe in Jesus Christ the Son of God, who created heaven and earth and all things: who shall come among the children of men.
And it came to pass that after thy had spoken these words the Spirit of the Lord came upon them and they were filled with joy, having received a remission of sins, AND HAVING PEACE OF CONSCIENCE because of their exceeding faith which they had in Jesus Christ who should come, according to the words which King Benjaminn had spoken to them.

We too can have peace of conscience when we ask in prayer to have our sins forgiven.
Remember when we feel the Spirit of the Lord, the Holy Ghost, we can know with assurity that our sins have been forgiven, for the Holy Ghost cannot live in an unclean tabernacle.

That alone should bring you peace of conscience.

2 Nephi 4:27
And why should I yield to sin, because of my flesh? Yea, why should I give way to temptations, that the evil one have place in my heart to DESTROY MY PEACE and afflict my soul? Why am I angry because of my enemy?

Yielding to sin
giving way to temptation
And
Anger and resentment all things that can destroy our peace.

If we struggle with these, we need to do like Nephi did and ask God to help us remove them from our hearts.

1 Nephi 13:37
And blessed are they who shall seek to bring forth my Zion at that day, for they shall have the gift of the Holy Ghost; and if they endure to the end they shall be lifted up at the last day, and shall be saved in the everlasting kingdom of the Lamb; and whoso SHALL PUBLISH PEACE, yea tidings of great joy, how beautiful upon the mountain shall they be.

To spread the good news of the gospel is to publish peace. Doing your small part in the kingdom, your church callings, your home responsibilities sharing with others why you believe, etc. are all ways to publish peace and to bring forth His Zion.

Romans 14:19
Let us therefore follow after the things that make for peace, and the things wherewith one many edify another.

Edify = to build, to beautify, to secure.

Today let us follow after the things that make for peace, lets try and edify those we come in contact with today.

That is a beautiful scripture. And how true. At times in my life when I have been living the law more fully, I have been truly at peace and the little things haven't bothered me. It is a wonderful feeling.

It just hit my how timely this discussion of peace is. Our family is reeling right now because one of my sisters is making some very poor choices. So, a message of peace is very welcome. Thanks.

Remember the definition of peace - a state of calm, quiet, secure; free from disturbing thoughts.

Dec 1

Psalms 119:165
Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.

When this scripture is pondered upon it makes perfect sense. If we keep the commandments, we won't have those disturbing thoughts of shame, guilt, remorse. And when we are confident that we are in the right, what others say about is doesn't offend us as much as when we are unsure of ourselves.

Which reminds me of this quote"
"When obedience ceases to be an irritant and becomes a quest, in that moment the Lord will endow us with power."- Gordon B. Hinckley (For the purposes of this topic, maybe we can change the word power with peace.)
