Some Christmas verses

"Then Simeon blessed them, and said to Mary His mother, 'Behold, this Child is destined for the fall and rising of many in Israel, and for a sign which will be spoken against (yes, a sword will pierce through your own soul also), that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.'" - Luke 2:34-35

That was the priest Simeon prophesying about Jesus.  Later Jesus says:

"Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth.  I did not come to bring peace but a sword." - Matthew 10:34

The world is certainly in an uproar over what Jesus did 2,000 years ago, down to the level of divided families.

I always think of the fact that the "war in heaven" that was fought before the world was created, has not ended. Christ came to deliver that one most powerful weapon, the atonement that would overcome all of the other weapons of the adversary. And when all is said and done, Christ will reign as the "Prince of peace". :)
