As I was praying for peace in the Middle East, a more inspired view of Holy Land took hold of my thought.
The physical acreage of Israel and nearby territory is often identified as the Holy Land. Millions of people make trips to “The Holy Land,” to retrace the footsteps of Jesus Christ and his followers from centuries ago.
But is God’s Holy Land physical acreage? I questioned.
I thought about how Jesus Christ led the way to heaven—which is God’s Holy Land. The kingdom of heaven is not a place on a physical earth, nor is it a territory that can be fought over by warring parties. The kingdom of heaven is a spiritual place, the realm of Truth and Love where God reigns supreme and evil has no place or power. Harmony and peace are the rule of God’s land.
Aw, what a relief! I exclaimed. God’s Holy Land is not filled with war. It’s a state of Mind that is far above any mortal strife or malicious action. It is the omnipotence and omnipresence of infinite Love which is forever at peace.
I feel confident that as humanity understands the truth about God’s Holy Land and lives its rules in daily life, there will be less war and more heavenly peace on earth to enjoy by all mankind.
