Matt 5:9 Isn’t About Making Peace With Man

Many people use Matt 5:9 to say those who make peace with man will be called the sons of God, but that isn’t what the word “peacemakers” means, it means to make peace with God, in other words those who make peace with God will be called the sons of God.

The Greek word for “peacemakers” in Matt 5:9 is eirénopoios, the definition of eirénopoios is, peacemaking, a peacemaker.

In Matt 5:9 eirénopoios means, someone who bravely declares God’s terms which makes someone whole, in other words, only those who believe Yeshua is the Messiah that don’t practice sin are the peacemakers that Matt 5:9 talks about.

Matt 5:9  Blessed are the peacemakers [eirénopoios] (those who make peace with God): for they shall be called the children of God.

Nobody by freewill makes peace with God, it is the Holy Spirit that makes a person a peacemaker with God. Those who believe Yeshua is the Messiah that don’t practice sin are born of the Spirit, that’s why they are peacemakers.

No one has to say a prayer, confess sin, or be water baptized to be born of the Spirit.

To be born of the Spirit (born from above), a person first has to believe God’s Son, Yeshua is the Messiah, and then, God willing, God will baptize the person in the Holy Spirit, it is the baptism in the Holy Spirit that makes a person stop practicing sin.

The baptism in the Holy Spirit is the repentance that leads to life (Acts 11:16-18), without the baptism of the Holy Spirit nobody belongs to God.

Only those who are baptized in the Holy Spirit are Christian.

John 3:8  The wind blows (breathes) where it wills; and though you hear its sound, yet you neither know where it comes from nor where it is going. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit [born from above].

1 Jn 5:1  Whoever believes Yeshua is the Messiah is born of God [born of the Spirit].

1 Jn 3:9  No one born of God practices sin, because His seed [the Holy Spirit] abides in him or her; and he or she cannot sin, because he or she is born of God [born of the Spirit].

1 Jn 5:18  We know [absolutely] that anyone born of God [born of the Spirit] does not [deliberately and knowingly] practice committing sin, but the One Who was begotten of God carefully watches over {and} protects him [Christ’s divine presence (the Holy Spirit) within him who is born of God preserves him against the evil], and the wicked one [the spirit of the natural man] does not lay hold (get a grip) on him {or} touch [him].
