“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God. Bible

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.” This clearly refers to the future because the peacemakers on the earth today are often scoffed at and discounted as cowards and compromisers. This is the case whether the conflicts are inter-family, inter-racial, or international. Nevertheless, the Lord recognizes their efforts and they will be called “the sons of God” in the Kingdom, where they will live forever. That peacemakers would have everlasting life was stated in the Old Testament. Psalm 37:37 (NIV84) says, “there is a future for the man of peace.”
