END TIME BIBLE PROPHECY IN 2 PETER
People think that end time Bible prophecy is only in Revelation but much of it is actually in other books of the Bible such as the OT and these verses in 2 Peter.
People refuse to believe today that Jesus is returning! Ch. 3:3 …scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires. They will say, where is the promise of His coming?
The earth and the sky as we know it now will eventually burn up! Ch. 3:7 …the heavens and earth that now exist are stored up for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.
People say that before Jesus ascended into heaven He said He was coming back SOON and that was 2000 years ago! But to God in Ch. 3:8 with the Lord one day is 1000 years and 1000 years as one day.
The people live their lives as they wish not taking into account the soon return of Jesus and they are not prepared and watching! Ch.3:10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief… and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.
People that can see things are not right they live in fear but should be living with Hope for what is to come! Ch. 3:13 But according to His promise we are waiting for a new heaven and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.
People have gotten away from pursuing God and from living Holy lives and being mindful of the 10 Commandments. This is how He should find us when He returns. Ch. 3:14b…be diligent to be found by Him without spot or blemish, and at peace The Old Testament points to our great need for a Savior. The New Testament ushers in the account of our how our Savior
came and suffered so we can be saved and gives account of what is to come. We are on the cusp of the return of our Lord and Savior and we, the people, all need to be ready and prepared NOW! Don’t wait!
