“Men, since the beginning of time, have sought peace. Various methods through the ages have been attempted to devise an international process to prevent or settle disputes between nations. From the very start, workable methods were found as far as individual citizens were concerned, but the mechanics of an instrumentality of larger, international scope have never been successful. Military alliances, balances of power, Leagues of Nations, all, in turn, failed, leaving the only path to be by way of the crucible of war. The utter destructiveness of war now blocks out this alternative. We have had our last chance. If we will not devise some greater and more equitable system, Armageddon will be at our door.
The problem basically is theological and involves a spiritual recrudescence and improvement in human character that will synchronize with our almost matchless advances in science, art, literature, and all the material and cultural developments of the past 2000 years. It must be of the spirit if we are to save the flesh! MacArthur has nailed it! A Spiritual Change, is a change in human nature from a carnal or fleshly mind and spirit to a true, transformation of the heart that has the Creator’s Set-Apart Spirit dwelling in it – what the world calls His (Holy Spirit).
Jeremiah 31:31 See, the days are coming, declares the Master that I will make a renewed covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
Jeremiah 31:32 Not like the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I strengthened their hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, my covenant which they broke, although I was a husband to them, saith the Master:
Jeremiah 31:33 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, declares the Master, I shall put my Torah in their inward parts, and write it on their hearts. And I shall be their Elohim, and they shall be My people.
Ancient Israel failed because the majority of them did not have His Spirit – only the elders, priests, prophets, kings and a select few picked for leadership positions ordained with the Laying on of Hands.
