When War Will End
by Wayne Blank
John McCrae (1872-1918), a Canadian battlefield doctor who served on the front lines in an artillery brigade, wrote "In Flanders Fields," a poem made famous after the war (McCrae himself did not survive the war, and is himself ironically now among those he wrote about in his poem):
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
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)
