What does God mean by “peace on earth and GOOD will towards man”?

Q: What does God mean by “peace on earth and GOOD will towards man”?

A: “Peace on earth and good will towards men” was the fulfillment of the ancient promise that God made in Genesis 3:15.

It referred to the state of spiritual peace that would be the result of the abundant grace that Jesus obtained for us, by his atoning sacrifice on the cross at Calvary.

It also looks forward to the 2nd coming of Christ, when that state of peace will become the “norm” forever and ever.

Jesus is (among many other things) the physical manifestation and the eternal confirmation of God’s good will towards man.
