Micah 4:3 ” He will judge between many peoples and will settle disputes for strong nations far and wide. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore.”

Across the centuries people have called for world peace.  And for a moment it may happen…but then, evil gets in the way.  Except here, Micah is telling us about a time when there will be lasting world peace.  For the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ, will come and He will judge with all righteousness and justice. (Isaiah 11:4)  There will no longer be any need for weapons, for there will no longer be hostility or conflict in the world, because Jesus will mediate all disputes.   So with world peace, the arms of war will be turned into tools of agriculture in order to feed the nations.
