God's Plan for a Warless World
Jesse M. Hendley
Today I want to raise the question, "Why will there be
war till Christ returns? And why is the U. N. a
God has the answer in the Bible. God gives to us His
plan for a warless world. I want to present to you
Ezra 9, verse 7, where we read these words: "For our
iniquities have we been delivered to the sword, to
captivity, to spoil, and to confusion of face as it is
this day." There is the tremendous statement of Ezra,
the priest in Israel, and a confession of their sins.

a light thing! It isn't just a street brawl; our boys
are dying out there by the thousands.
Thirty years ago America buried her Unknown Soldier.
An eye-witness writes of that tremendous moment, "All
