“For thus saith the LORD of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts.” - Haggai 2:6, 7.
Comment:

Truly, it is only God Almighty through His son Jesus Christ, Who can bring about peace on this earth by making wars to cease to the ends of the earth and ensuring that the faithful “might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly”. (Psalm 29:11; John 10:10) At that time the faithful “shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the LORD of hosts hath spoken it”. - Micah 4:4.

Giving more details about the conditions that would prevail in the Kingdom of God, the New Jerusalem, the Bible says , “…the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind … and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying.” (Isaiah 65:17-19) The vision of Apostle John in the Island of Patmos, sheds some more light on the matter. It says, “…And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” - Revelation 21:1-4. See also Isaiah 33:18-20.

By these sure promises made by God Almighty Who can not lie “we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us”. - Hebrews 6:18.
