Should the people desire peace, let they themselves be peaceful. Should the people want quiet, let they themselves be quiet. There is no anger in peace. There is no anxiety in quietness. God comforts the spirit of the saints with His love.
“And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.”
Do not be deceived, brethren. Many speak in Jesus’ name, but are not from Jesus. Many will sow seeds of division to satisfy their own lustful desires. Give the unrighteous their own place to bury their dead. We, however, will follow Jesus. For His love lasts forever.
Show mercy to the just and the unjust. Be at peace with all and never quarrel with the demons. Jesus has won that battle. His angels surround the saints, and no one can stop the army of God. Love Jesus always.
Be slow to anger and thoughtful in speech. Restrain your tongue, for it is as a sword, which cuts both ways through the skin and through the marrow. Be vigilant to sow peace in all your dealings, for a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace.

Good post. I wonder about your instruction about not arguing with demons. I agree that we aren’t to argue with them, but I wonder about how we are to fight them as per Ephesians 6:10-12:
“Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. 12 For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.

Should one enslaved by sin fight and attempt to divide the church, be ready with an answer. Scripture for scripture. Demons will come against us with scripture. We would need to know how to deflect the arrows with the armor of God using sound reasoning and the revelation of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit. No demon can withstand the truth. Always look to God for what He reveals in the Word. Blessings Tricia.
