He will render judgment among the nations and set matters straight respecting many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning shears. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, nor will they learn war anymore. (Isaiah 2:4). James Dorcie was a very brave person who loved life and loved us all by his selfless acts during his life helping others. Now in the near future he will reap the rewards of a peaceful new world God has promised. 2 Peter 2:13.
