In Flanders Fields

On November 11 1918, the Armistice was signed to end "The Great War," or "First World War" in Europe. Its military technology was primitive by today's standards, but its final toll was not - over 10 million were killed, at least 20 million were injured or maimed. Approximately 65 million served in the various forces.

First World War Wounded

John McCrae (1872-1918), a Canadian military doctor who served on the front lines, wrote "In Flanders Fields," a poem made famous after the war.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

An end to all war is coming. We aren't there yet, and there are still some very difficult times to come upon this old world, but peace, true everlasting peace, will be achieved. God has the power to make it happen, and He will in due time. That is an absolute certainty.

"It shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the house of The Lord shall be established as the highest of the mountains, and shall be raised above the hills; and all the nations shall flow to it, and many peoples shall come, and say: "Come, let us go up to the mountain of The Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; that He may teach us His ways and that we may walk in His paths." For out of Zion shall go forth the Law, and the Word of The Lord from Jerusalem. He shall judge between the nations, and shall decide for many peoples; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more" (Isaiah 2:2-4 RSV)

Fact Finder: Are all of the dead, who now lie buried throughout the earth and in the seas, coming back to life some day?
