17 And the fruit (effect) of righteousness will be peace, and the effect of righteousness is quietness and confident trust (unquestionable assurance) forever. [From the Word of the Lord within: "Keep seeking peace; great will be your peace if you continue faithfully. There is a blessing to make the cessation of the mind permanent. Live in peace forever. You must go on waiting, watching, and listening; then our hearts will be quiet by grace. You will receive a new heart and mind. Grow up into the mind of Christ, from which all good thoughts proceed."]
7 And the peace of God, which is superior to all your mind's thoughts, will keep your hearts and minds [quiet and worry free] through Christ Jesus. [Peace comes as the carnal mind is destroyed to be replaced with a new mind, the mind of Christ. From the Word of the Lord within: "We seek a lasting peace. Grace destroys sin. There is a blessing to make the cessation of the mind permanent. Live in peace forever."]
3 You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.
|Colossians 3:15 |
15 And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which you are called in one body; and be thankful. [From the Word of the Lord within: "If all that profess me, would possess me. The King is where He is king." Unless Jesus orders all your thoughts, words, and deeds, He is not yet your Lord, Master, or King. You can call Him Lord or Master, but so did Judas and so did Hitler. To be your ruling Lord and King, Jesus must first appear in your heart to then guide and rule you; and His appearance only occurs after you have crucified your lusts, affections, imagination, and carnal mind on the inward cross of self-denial.]
