2 Peter 3:1

Peter walked with Jesus, talked with Him and spent three amazing years with the lovely Lord Jesus, Whom he confessed as Christ, the Son of the living God. He was one of the twelve disciples who were sent, by Christ, to minister to the lost sheep of the house of Israel, preaching the gospel of the kingdom; healing the sick; raising the dead; cleansing the lepers and casting out demons.

2 Peter 3:2

2 Peter 3:2

The apostle Peter stresses the importance of the Word of God in the life of all believers, knowing that Christendom is awash with false teachers, doctrines of demons and a willing ignorance of the truth of Scripture.

How important it is to remember the God-breathed predictions of the Lord's holy prophets of the Old Testament and how necessary to recollect the words, wisdom and warnings of the Lord Jesus Himself, which has been read more...

2 Peter 3:3

2 Peter 3:3

God has broken into history on a number of occasions and Peter is keen to remind us that the time is coming, when once again God will intervene in a Christ-rejecting sinful world, in order to carry out His plans and purposes to completion.

The Lord stepped into history at the flood when He saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become, for every inclination of the human heart was continuously evil in those days. He read more...

2 Peter 3:4

2 Peter 3:4

We live in a world that has systematically eliminated the Creator and His Christ from every area of national, governmental, educational, social, scientific and family life and replaced it with a flawed system of rationalism and relative thinking.

Not only is God blasphemed and scorned in all the corridors of power, at home and abroad.. the Biblical prophecies of Christ's return to judge the world are treated with scorn, mockery read more...

2 Peter 3:5

2 Peter 3:5

Like all new Testament apostles, who were ordained by God to write the Scripture, Peter wants to ensure that Christian men and women, remain mindful of past prophetic writings, and important apostolic commandments.

2 Peter 3:6

2 Peter 3:6

The problem of false teachers and the predicted increase in scoffers in the last days is given significant attention in Peter's last letter. He prompts his readers to hold fast to the text of Scripture and to cling tightly to the glorious gospel of God and the unchangeable fact - that Christ is the Way, the Truth and the Life.

He wants to stir up our heart by reminding us that Scripture is the product of holy men of God, who read more...

2 Peter 3:8

2 Peter 3:8

In contrast to Peter’s earlier dialogue of the multitudes of mockers that scoff at the fast approaching day of the Lord, when God pours out His wrath on a Christ-rejecting sinful world, during the great tribulation, Peter outlines a truth that has escaped the notice of many - that one day with God is as 1000 years, and 1000 years as a single day.

Some disbelieve because of the centuries that have rolled by without His return, read more...

2 Peter 3:9

2 Peter 3:9

Humanity is tethered to time and enclosed in space, unaware of the eternal, unrestricted perspective of the Father. We are hooked into a world of the moment and a life of the limited, while God is unfolding His plans and purposes for the benefit of mankind, which He knew in the eternal council chambers of heaven, before the creation was spoken into being. God is not slow to fulfil His promises to us, and any perceived delay in the mindset of man, cannot invalidate read more...

2 Peter 3:10

2 Peter 3:10

The Day-of-the-Lord is a topic that is widely discussed in both the Old and New Testaments. Unlike certain Church-age doctrines, like the rapture, the dispensation of the grace of God or the new-man-in-Christ, which were hidden from past ages and generations, the Day-of-the-Lord is openly taught, throughout the Word of God.

The Day-of-the-Lord covers a time that starts with a seven-year period of great trouble and tribulation, read more...

2 Peter 3:11

2 Peter 3:11

As the apostle Peter neared the end of his life he taught about the coming day of the Lord and warned the little flock of Christ that in the last days mocking men would ridicule the truth of Christ’s return demonstrating their ignorance of the God’s Word and their foolish assumptions that things are going to continue on ad-infinitum. God stepped into the pages of history many times to pronounce His judgement on a Christ rejecting sinful world – following an read more...

2 Peter 3:12

2 Peter 3:12

Peter had an understanding of the future.. not only the immediate future, the rapture of the Church and the future millennial rule of Christ, but also the far, distant future, when this fallen world will be destroyed by intense fire, and replaced with a new heaven and a new earth. He knew having an understanding of future events would help motivate believers to separate themselves from sin and worldly desires, and live godly lives.

2 Peter 3:13

2 Peter 3:13

Both Peter and Paul gave some excellent information about “the Day of the Lord”. It begins with the prophesised “Time of Jacob’s Trouble”, continues into the millennial reign of Christ on earth – and on into the eternal ages.

“The Day of the Lord” reaches its climax with the destruction of the first, fallen heaven and cursed earth, and continues with the creation of a new heaven and a blessed, new earth – before continuing into the read more...

2 Peter 3:14

2 Peter 3:14

As Peter nears the end of his earthly life, there seems to be an increasing urgency to warn the body of Christ of the mounting danger of false teachers, whom the apostle identified as rebellions, mercenary, animalistic and deceitful men, who are persistent sinners.

Although he reassures us that such false teachers will finally be deposed and destroyed at the second advent of Christ, when He returns to set up His millennial read more...

2 Peter 3:15

2 Peter 3:15

Peter was eager to stir up the minds of the saints to whom he was writing. He was keen to bring to their remembrance everything he had taught them. He also wanted them to pay attention to the words spoken by prophets of old, the apostle Paul and Christ’s other holy apostles.

2 Peter 3:16

2 Peter 3:16

The one thing that so many Bible expositors fail to do is to teach the Scriptures literally, grammatically, historically and in context. What is the topic under discussion? Who spoke the word or penned the sacred text and to whom is a particular passage addressed and why?

In this final letter, just before his death, the aged apostle Peter read more...

2 Peter 3:18

2 Peter 3:18

The grace of God spills over the pages of Peter's epistles like so many sparkling jewels, and in the final words of his letter, we are encouraged to grow in the grace of God, that has been so freely bestowed on all who believe in His free gift of salvation. We are to dig our roots down deep into the depths of His Word and we are to reach out into the farthest extremities of His grace, which are higher than the heavens above and deeper than the ocean depths.
