Luxum Light

The Siege and Destruction of Jerusalem, by David Roberts (1850).
Josephus claims that 1,100,000 people were killed during the siege, of which a majority were Jewish, and that 97,000 were captured and enslaved, including Simon bar Giora and John of Giscala.[4]
"The slaughter within was even more dreadful than the spectacle from without. Men and women, old and young, insurgents and priests, those who fought and those who entreated mercy, were hewn down in indiscriminate carnage. The number of the slain exceeded that of the slayers. The legionaries had to clamber over heaps of dead to carry on the work of extermination."[5]

This book WAR IN A BOTTLE is about the supernatural peace of which Jesus frequently spoke. “My peace I give to you not as this world gives.” (John 14:27; 16:33) What’s so special about this peace since He made a point by emphasizing His kind of peace? He made still a much stronger case when He said that in the world we have tribulations and turmoil, but He had overcome this world. So how did He overcome this world?
When the angels proclaimed the birth of Jesus with words like, ‘Peace on Earth and good will toward man’ (Luke 2) and yet we have no lasting peace than what sort of a peace did the angels proclaim?
Jesus stated in Matthew 5:9 “Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called sons of God.” In Luke 13:20-21 Jesus compared God’s kingdom to a leaven that causes expansion of the lump and in turn the rising of the baked bread. The Son of God being the chief peacemaker said that He is the ‘bread of life that came down from heaven.’ Therefore, ought not the body of Christ be rather busy with that one particular peace ingredient rather than with the supposed heavenly wars?
Apostle Paul spoke of God’s sons in Romans 8; and that the entire creation longs for the appearance of the sons whom Jesus named as being the peacemakers. The popular theology gives us the idea that Lucifer rebelled against God and took with him one third of the angels suggesting that wars and upheavals came to us from heaven, but this is not clearly written in the Bible. Is it possible that the natural thinkers have interpreted the supernatural through just the physical faculties of cognizance? Wars on earth are quite frequent. Plots and intrigues need time and the obscurity of darkness. Dethroning and overthrowing of monarchs we find on earth, but can anyone plot in the realm of no darkness and of no time? Therefore only a mind accustomed to these earthly dimensions would naturally assume that heaven must go through the same?
In this book we will not even attempt to reconcile theology with the Bible—for it would take too many books to write—but rather attract our mind to logic, which is found in the heavenly peace.
Here is an example of my logic: if heaven once experienced war or upheaval then what guarantee do we have that the same heavenly sphere won’t succumb to it again? Therefore, what sort of a heaven are we preparing ourselves for? Or, what quality of a faith we ought to have? If the peace of which Jesus spoke is not of this world, but of His, then by contrast with the physical earth, the spiritual realm must be completely peaceful. In the same vain, our faith must not be self-produced, but rather be God’s gift, just as the scripture confirms it to be so. No one can come to Jesus unless it is the heavenly Father who draws him. (John 6:44) The faith in Christ the Messiah brings wholeness. Faith comes by hearing, yet it comes, for in 1st Corinthians 12:9 Apostle Paul declares that faith is indeed God’s gift to us.
Finally. Peace heals and restores while war divides and destroys.

As the waves of time roll onward into unknown and yet unexplored regions we can only write what the one-dimensional realm of no time and no space bouquets us with. Transferring timeless properties down to this realm takes an effort. A reader must be interested enough to absorb it. Drop me a coin. Appreciate it.
