BECOMING A PEACEMAKER Blessed are the peacemakers

By Dr. Allen Ross
The following words which appear in the original were changed:
God was changed to Elohim or Yahweh; Jesus was changed to Yahshua; Christ was changed to Messiah.
New Testament was changed to Renewed Covenant.

Matthew 5:9 
 9 Blessed are the peacemakers, because they shall be called sons of Elohim. 

The Greek word translated “peacemaker” is Strong’s G1518 – «eirēnopoios»
from G1518 and G4160; pacificatory, that is, (subjectively) peaceable: – peacemaker.
It is used in only one other place in the Renewed Covenant, in a slightly different form in Colossians 

Colossians 1:20
20 and through Him to completely restore to favour all unto Himself, whether on earth or in the heavens, having made peace through the blood of His stake.

Yahshua laid down His life to make peace between Yahweh and sinners, and when we can carry that message of peace to others, we are peacemakers. Yahweh delights in those who reconcile others to Himself—those who bring the gospel are beautiful or pleasant‘ (Isaiah 52:7). Yahweh restored us to favour with Himself through יהושע{Yahshua} Messiah, and has given us the service of restoration‘ (2 Corinthians 5:18). Those who bring reconciliation to broken relationships are carrying on the work of Yahshua, the Prince of Peace.

Yahweh is the Elohim of peace; His whole plan of redemption is to provide peace for those who were formerly alienated from Himself, and ultimately bring peace to the whole world (Isaiah 9:6,7). This is the goal of the work of the Messiah.
There is no real peace apart from a relationship with Yahweh. Only Yahweh can give this kind of peace. It is a peace that the world does not understand (John 14:27). It begins with reconciliation with Elohim and extends to reconciliation with other people. True peace is found only in a restored relationship with Yahweh.  is no peace for the wrong, said יהוה.’ (Isaiah 48:22).
The true peacemakers are they who promote the kingdom of Elohim. Their lives are given to working for promoting the kingdom of Yahweh, reconciling adversaries, quenching hatred, uniting those who are divided, promoting true understanding and spiritual love. And they do this because they know what true peace is. So the quality described here is one that is spiritual and not simply a political seeking of peace.
And the promise is that they shall be called the sons of God. This adds to what life will be like in the kingdom–possession of land, stilling of hunger, vision of God, and now sonship. And all these begin when people enter the kingdom by faith, but will be fulfilled completely when the kingdom finally comes.
In the Old Testament “sons of God” is a description of angels, and rarely is such language used for salvation. But in the New Testament sonship is a powerful expression for salvation. It means that believers have been born into the family of God by the Holy Spirit, and that those so designated have a personal relationship with the Father through Christ the Son, that they are joint heirs with Him, that they have a place in their heavenly home by birthright.Those who bring the wonderful message of God’s peace to the world are “peacemakers,” and Jesus calls them the “children of God.” Not yet in the full sense, but truly in the certainty of the promise can believers say, “We are called the children of God” (see John 1:12,13 and 1 John 3:1).
 So the disciples of Yahshua should be promoting peace. They do this by spreading the Gospel of peace to the world, and by promoting reconciliation within the household of faith as well. In short, they should be doing the work of the Messiah.
