The Earth's Apocalyptic Annihilation through a Divine Temper Tantrum has never been God's Will or method for bringing Peace, nor does He delight in "peace" through bullets, bombs or bullying!
Matthew 5:5 "Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth."
Psalm 115:16 "The heavens are the heavens of the LORD; But the earth He has given to the sons of men."
Ecclesiastes 1:4 "A generation goes and a generation comes, But the earth remains forever."
Psalm 78:69 "And he built his sanctuary like high [palaces], like the earth which he hath established forever."
Psalm 104:5 "Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed forever."
Psalm 37:29 "The righteous will inherit the land, And dwell in it forever."
Ephesians 1:21 "Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end (an unending age). Amen."
"Heaven and Earth" (See Matthew 24:35- Herod's Temple and Jerusalem as people of the First Century knew it) passed away and the "Elements" (See 2 Peter 3:10,12- The basic doctrines and commands of the Old Covenant World of Israel...to most definitely include the priesthood and its practices) were destroyed by "fire" way back in 70 A.D.. To lack an understanding of ancient metaphors is to misinterpret the Bible and totally misunderstand God's original and ultimate Intention for planet Earth.
Revelation 21:1 "And I saw a new heaven and a new earth (The New Covenant Church/Temple of the Holy Spirit/Body of Christ): for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea (Perhaps...The Large, Bronze Bath in the Temple used for ceremonial washings...because the New Covenant, Royal Priesthood is clean through the finished work of Christ...and/or this speaks of an abolishment of the concept of a "Sea" of "Gentile outsiders".).
Isaiah 9:6 "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of PEACE. 7 Of the increase of [his] government and PEACE [there shall be] NO END, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this."
Luke 2:10 "And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. 12 And this [shall be] a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, 14 Glory to God in the highest, and ON EARTH PEACE, good will toward men."
Matthew 5:9 "Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God."
