Jesus did bring peace, internal peace and freedom that comes from knowing Him and turning from sin. That being said, people still have free will and Satan is still at work inspiring dark deeds, lies and furthering ignorance and hatred.

But the bible clearly states that when the Messiah comes, everyone will beat their swords into plowshares and practice no further warfare (Isaiah 2). This isn't an internal promise; it literally says that weapons will be turned into agricultural instruments. So since that hasn't happened, if you believe that the scripture is the Word of God that cannot be changed, as I do, then you must conclude that Messiah is not here. There is no way around it. The Old Testament doesn't have a Messianic installment plan where the Messiah fails and then returns thousands of years later.

He didn't fail. He died for your sins and mine and rose from the dead. Since he is alive, that's why he is able to return. And then Isaiah 2 will come to pass.

Hi,
did you ever read the book of Micah?

Micah 5
2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.
3 Therefore will he give them up, until the time that she which travaileth hath brought forth: then the remnant of his brethren shall return unto the children of Israel.
4 And he shall stand and feed in the strength of the LORD, in the majesty of the name of the LORD his God; and they shall abide: for now shall he be great unto the ends of the earth.
5 And this man shall be the peace

Read particularly the verse 3;
This means which the Messiah had to come but we read he will forsake his people for a time, till the remnant of his brothers will reunite with the children of Israel.
So there will be a second coming of the Messiah.
