Open your hand, that it is not a fist but an outstretched one,

Feel the friendship not the pain that might be laid upon.

Change the words and phrases of your mouth so that they are

Of loving thoughts and wisdom,

Make them kind, not of hatred and hurt.

Threats meaning is of Intimidation, the possibility that something

Bad and evil might come, emotional torment.

Lay down your weapons, take the sword, the knife or gun

And drop them to the ground,

They are of no use to those of wanting love and happiness around.

This I say in the name of hope and prayer,

Lay down your weapons as the lord and son are very near.

  1. Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

    Then said he unto them, “But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.”

    In other words, there are seasons. You must discern if laying down arms is surrender to evil, or acknowledgement of peace.
