Word of the Day, October 15, 2018

ď Crucified. Laid behind the stone. You lived to die rejected and alone. Like a rose trampled on the ground. You took the fall and thought of me above all.Ē

2 Peter 1:1-2

1 Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ:

2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,

Peter also authored this book and his main theme is a warning against corrupt teachers and scoffers. In order to counteract the influence of false doctrine, he made a great emphasis upon the Word of GOD and the for sure fulfillment of GODís divine promises.

Peter reacted to the scoffers, those that mocked, those that sowed doubt, and those that spoke derisively against Christ. He stated they would come in the last days in 2 Peter: 3:3-4. He shared the heresies of the false teachers, their corrupt characters and their denial of Christ throughout chapter 2. Peter called for our spiritual life ď through the knowledge of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue.Ē (2 Peter 1:3)

Peter gives us seven essential steps in our increase and fruitfulness of our spiritual life in 2 Peter 1:5-8. We need to be giving all diligence, to be adding to faith virtue, and to virtue knowledge, then to knowledge temperance, to add temperance to our patience, and to patience godliness. Peter continues to shares that we are to add to godliness brotherly kindness and to brotherly kindness charity.

This letter gives us believers today a look at how we must still be vigilant against falling into false doctrines, heresy and even cult activities. Peterís letter gives us clues to help detect false teachings and how to avoid them. I had a brother in Christ tell me that some one stated to them that because other religions have done certain things, that are against the Word of GOD, that they must be right because the church is doing this today. Scary!

We need to study the scriptures before we make up our own bible. If the preacher man preaches something we do not like, go to the Word of GOD and find the answer. Letís not change the Word of GOD for our liking. That is what Peter is warning us about. I am paraphrasing here that Christ said that His Words would outlast heaven and this earth or is that a verse we donít agree with and ignore? Letí just pick the verses about GODís love and heaven.

Peterís second letter touches on the churches internal problems, especially on false teachings that were causing people to doubt their faith and turn away from Christianity. Boy, could we use a Peter letter sent to us today. Religions have become the norm and not a personal relationship with Christ Jesus.

The Word of GOD has been changed, deleted, misrepresented and thrown out of our lives today, true Christianity has been replaced with manís religions and false religions, false teachings such as prosperity preaching, a man at the head of a religion being glorified instead of GOD, the desire for money taking over true gospel preaching, our own gods that come before our One True GOD, preachers not preaching about the blood of Christ, people believing a self proclaimed prophet over the Word of GOD, man excepts only what it wants and our Govít is trying to take GOD out of our lives. We need to be in the Holy Scriptures more today than ever before. Guess what, we do have a letter from Peter, it is right in front of us if we are willing to just pick up our Bible and read it.

ď Holy, holy, holy Lord, God Almighty. All Thy works shall praise Thy name in earth and sky and sea. Holy, holy, holy merciful and mighty God in three persons blessed Trinity.Ē
