The War To End All Wars
by Wayne Blank
"In Flanders fields the poppies blow, Between the crosses, row on row"
John McCrae (1872-1918), a Canadian battlefield doctor who served on the front lines, wrote "In Flanders Fields," a poem made famous after the war. Ironically, McCrae himself did not survive the war and is now among those that 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 the 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.
The good news (Gospel literally means good news) is that war is going to end and "Remembrance Day" will truly be about wars of the past, not merely remembering wars of the past while more wars are happening. People are going to be able to live in peace because all of the world will truly be at peace.
"And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of The Lord's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of The Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths: for out of Zion [see Who, What or Where Is Zion?] shall go forth the law, and the word of The Lord from Jerusalem. And He shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more" (Isaiah 2:2-4 KJV)
