“No Justice, No Peace “is a chant that we’ve been hearing over and over again throughout the years when people-specifically blacks, have marches for injustices that have been done in the black community. But why haven’t anything productive come from these marches where we’ve been saying this chant since the 1960’s here in America?
Because we’re turning to our oppressors to get justice and peace, when we should be turning to the Lord to get those things. The scriptures tells us the following.
Psalms 89:1, 14, 18 I will sing of the mercies of the Lord for ever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations.
14 Justice and judgment are the habitation of thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before thy face.
18 For the Lord is our defence; and the Holy One of Israel is our king.
The Most High God and his son Jesus Christ is our defender and king in all things.
Being the descendants of slaves, our ancestors were brought here through captivity and the people that are ruling over us are considered our enemies.
This is a biblical prophecy that was told to the Israelites of what would happen to them because of their disobedience.
Deuteronomy 28:48 Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the Lord shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee.
It would also be this way until the second return of Jesus Christ.
So any justice or peace that we’re looking for now, from our oppressors will not happen. It will only happen when Christ is set up as a king over the whole earth.
Jeremiah 23:5 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.
This is a prophecy of Christ coming back to reign as a king and then and only then will we get true justice.
So what should we do in the mean time? Continue to chant “No Justice, No Peace?”
No, we should repent from the wicked lifestyles that we live so that when Christ return we can be saved and live in everlasting peace.
Revelation 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
