 10 Because they have seduced my people saying, 'Peace!' When there is no peace.1 And one builds a wall, and lo, others [false prophets] daub it with untempered mortar, [Peace is the fruit of righteousness, which is quietness and confident trust, (unquestionable assurance), forever. Isa 32:17. Until we have been purified and freed from all sin, there is no peace or righteousness. See the definition of righteousness in 1 John 3:7's commentary and footnote to understand what it means and what it takes to become righteous and have peace.]

1 Because they have seduced my people saying, 'Peace!' When there is no peace. The false ministers say Peace, Peace, when there is no peace. And the work of righteousness will be peace, and the effect of righteousness is quietness and confidence forever. Isa 32:17. Through our belief in the true gospel, we have access to God, allowing us to approach him to receive his changing, purifying grace through hearing and obedience; however, until we have been purified and freed from all sin, there is no peace or righteousness. See the definition of righteousness in 1 John 3:7's commentary and footnote to understand what it means and what it takes to become righteous.

If while on earth, we fail to patiently and persistently wait on God, hearing and obeying all his commands, thus to be purified by faith, there is no peace with God because God does not tolerate sin; thus our souls will be destroyed, and we will be banned from heaven. Then we will have to make our peace with God the hard way: through a painful education and change in Hell.

The relatively easy way to obtain peace is on earth is through the inward cross of self-denial, which through repentance and destruction (remission) of sin produces peace and righteousness that is received as the Spirit of Christ replaces our destroyed sinful nature.
