2nd Peter Chapter 1
Author: 2 Peter 1:1 specifically states that the apostle Peter was the author of 2 Peter.
Date of Writing: The Book of 2 Peter was written toward the end of Peter’s life. Since Peter was martyred in Rome during the reign of Nero, his death must have occurred prior to A.D. 68. He very likely wrote 2 Peter between A.D. 65 and 68.
Purpose of Writing: Peter was alarmed that false teachers were beginning to infiltrate the churches. He called on Christians to grow and become strong in their faith so that they could detect and combat the spreading apostasy. He strongly stressed the authenticity of the Word of God and the sure return of the Lord Jesus. This was almost 2,000 years ago, how much worse is the false teaching today? It’s hideous!
2Pe 1:1 “Simon Peter, a SERVANT and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained (BY ABIDING IN CHRIST) like precious faith (JEWS & GENTILES) with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ: (GOD IMPUTES RIGHTEOUSNESS TO THOSE WHOM ARE HIS FRIENDS – THE OBEDIENT JOHN 15:14 COVERING SINS THAT ARE PAST ROMANS 3:25 “OLD SINS” 2nd Peter 1:9).
2Pe 1:2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you THROUGH THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, and of Jesus our Lord,
Confirm Your Calling and Election
2Pe 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and GODLINESS, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
2Pe 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these YE MIGHT BE partakers of the divine nature (HOW? BY LIVING PERFECT MATTHEW 5:48 AND ENDURING ‘TIL THEN END TO BE SAVED MATTHEW 24:13), having ESCAPED THE CORRUPTION that is in the world through LUST. (A TRUE CHRISTIAN DOES NOT FULFILL THE LUSTS OF THE FLESH GALATIANS 5:16).
2Pe 1:5 And beside this, GIVING ALL DILIGENCE, ADD TO YOUR FAITH virtue; and to virtue KNOWLEDGE;
2Pe 1:6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience GODLINESS;
2Pe 1:7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness CHARITY.
2Pe 1:8 For IF THESE THINGS BE IN YOU, AND ABOUND (ANYONE CAN DO GOOD WORKS….A TRUE CHRISTIAN DOES THEM CONSTANTLY, OUT OF A PURE HEART AND WITH TOTAL SURRENDER OF THEIR LIFE TO JESUS), they make you that ye shall NEITHER BE BARREN OR UNFRUITFUL in the KNOWLEDGE of our Lord Jesus Christ.
2Pe 1:9 But HE THAT LACKETH THESE THINGS IS BLIND (SPIRITUALLY DEAD), and cannot see afar off (CLOSES HIS EYES TO THE TRUTH – A LUKEWARM “CHRISTIAN” IS THE WORST OFFENDER), and hath forgotten that he was purged from his OLD SINS. (SINS THAT ARE PAST ARE COVERED ROMANS 3:25. DON’T BELIEVE THE LIES OF “YOUR PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE SINS ARE COVERED”…)!
2Pe 1:10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, GIVE DILIGENCE to MAKE your calling and election SURE: for IF YE DO THESE THINGS, (THEN) ye shall never fall: (IF YOU DON’T OBEY JESUS AND LIVE HOLY, YOU WILL FALL AWAY FROM HIM).
2Pe 1:11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
2Pe 1:12 Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established IN THE PRESENT TRUTH.
2Pe 1:13 Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, TO STIR YOU UP by putting you in remembrance;
2Pe 1:14 Knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me.
2Pe 1:15 Moreover I will endeavour that ye may be able after my decease to HAVE THESE THINGS ALWAYS IN REMEMBRANCE.
Christ’s Glory and the Prophetic Word
2Pe 1:16 For we have not followed cunningly devised fables (AS IN MOST OF THE “CHURCHES” TODAY), when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.
2Pe 1:17 For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
2Pe 1:18 And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.
2Pe 1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto A LIGHT THAT SHINETH IN A DARK PLACE, UNTIL THAT DAY DAWN (ENDURE ”TIL THE END), and the day star arise in your hearts: (MAY JESUS FILL YOU COMPLETELY AS YOU ABIDE IN HIM).
2Pe 1:20 Knowing this first, that NO PROPHECY OF THE SCRIPTURE IS OF ANY PRIVATE INTERPRETATION.
2Pe 1:21 For the prophecy CAME NOT in old time BY THE WILL OF MAN: but HOLY MEN OF GOD spake AS THEY WERE MOVED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT.”
2nd Peter Chapter 2
False Prophets and Teachers
2Pe 2:1 “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. (ACTS 20:25-31 PAUL SAID “I CEASED NOT TO WARN YOU WITH TEARS FOR THREE YEARS DAY AND NIGHT” TO THE CHURCH HE HELPED BUILT! HE STATED WICKED MEN SHALL RISE UP “NOT SPARING THE FLOCK” LEADING TO DESTRUCTION).
2Pe 2:2 And MANY shall follow their pernicious ways (FALSE DOCTRINE THAT IS SO PREVALENT TODAY AND GETTING WORSE AS WE ARE IN THE “FALLING AWAY MUST HAPPEN FIRST” 2nd Thessalonians 2:3); by reason of whom the way of TRUTH SHALL BE EVIL SPOKEN OF.
2Pe 2:3 And through COVETOUSNESS shall they with feigned (DECEITFUL) words MAKE MERCHANDISE OF YOU (A PERFECT DEPICTION OF “99%” WHO ATTEND “CHURCHES” AROUND THE WORLD TODAY LISTENING TO A FALSE MESSAGE WHILE THE “PASTOR” MAKES $$$): whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and THEIR DAMNATION SLUMBERETH NOT.
2Pe 2:4 For IF GOD SPARED NOT THE ANGELS THAT SINNED, but CAST THEM DOWN TO HELL, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
2Pe 2:5 And SPARED NOT THE OLD WORLD, but saved Noah THE EIGHT PERSON (“MILLIONS”, THEY ENTIRE REST OF THE EARTH GOT DROWN TO HELL), A PREACHER OF RIGHTEOUSNESS (STOP SINNING – “REPENT” – “LIVE HOLY” – “SIN NO MORE” IS THE SAVING GOSPEL), bringing in the FLOOD UPON the world of THE UNGODLY (WILLFUL SINNERS);
2Pe 2:6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, MAKING THEM AN ENSAMPLE unto those that after should live ungodly;
2Pe 2:7 And delivered JUST Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:
2Pe 2:8 (For that RIGHTEOUS MAN dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his RIGHTEOUS SOUL from day to day with their UNLAWFUL DEEDS (SIN)😉
2Pe 2:9 The Lord knoweth HOW TO DELIVER THE GODLY out of temptations, and to RESERVE THE UNJUST unto the day of judgment TO BE PUNISHED (ETERNALLY):
2Pe 2:10 But chiefly THEM THAT WALK AFTER THE FLESH in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government (HATE PROPER CHURCH ORDER, MEN IN POWER, ETC). Presumptuous are they, SELFWILLED, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities. (THIS IS RAMPANT TODAY AS SO MANY FORSAKE FELLOWSHIP – Hebrews 10:23-27. THIS INCLUDES WOMEN THAT DON’T BELIEVE THEY NEED A SHEPHERD HERE ON EARTH WHETHER A HUSBAND OR A ELDER – SPIRITUAL MAN – TO TEACH AND GUIDE THEM. Hebrews 13:7-9)
2Pe 2:11 Whereas ANGELS, WHICH ARE GREATER IN POWER AND MIGHT (YET STILL A 1/3 ARE CAST DOWN TO HELL BECAUSE THEN SINNED), bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.
2Pe 2:12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, SPEAK EVIL OF THE THINGS THEY UNDERSTAND NOT; and SHALL UTTERLY PERISH IN THEIR OWN CORRUPTION (BY YOUR WORKS YOU WILL BE JUDGED);
2Pe 2:13 And shall receive the reward of UNRIGHTEOUSNESS, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you;
2Pe 2:14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that CANNOT CEASE FROM SIN; beguiling unstable souls (PREACHING AN EASY, FALSE MESSAGE THAT DOES NOT SAVE AS THE CONGREGANTS ARE JUST AS WICKED AS THE WORLD AS THEY HAVE NOT THE HOLY SPIRIT AS SIN REIGNS IN THEM): an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; CURSED CHILDREN: (THESE DAMNABLE FALSE TEACHERS CAN’T EVEN LOOK AT THE FEMALES IN THEIR CONGREGATION AND STAY PURE… THEY LUST AND ARE CURSED!).
2Pe 2:15 Which have FORSAKEN THE RIGHT WAY, and are GONE ASTRAY (AGAIN WE SEE ONCE SAVED NOT ALWAYS SAVED), following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who LOVED THE WAGES OF UNRIGHTEOUSNESS; (INCLUDING THE FALSE PASTORS THAT LOVE THE FACT THEY GET THEIR SALARY, HOUSING, WICKED $$$ VACATIONS, ETC PAID BY PREACHING A FALSE GOSPEL TO THE LUKEWARM HEARERS WHO ARE JUST AS DAMNED FOR ACCEPTING IT, ACTUALLY WANTING A 1/2 GOSPEL THAT DOES NOT CALL THEM TO STOP SINNING AND ACTUALLY LIVE A SUFFERING LIFE TOTALLY SOLD OUT FOR JESUS).
2Pe 2:16 But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man’s voice forbad the madness of the prophet.
2Pe 2:17 These are wells without water (DECEPTIVE, LUKEWARM DECEIVERS THAT LOOK SO GOOD TO THE HEARERS AS THEY ALL WALLOW IN SIN0, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom THE MIDST OF DARKNESS IS RESERVED FOREVER. (THE ETERNAL LAKE OF FIRE IS THEIR DESTINATION).
2Pe 2:18 For when they speak GREAT SWELLING WORDS OF VANITY, THEY ALLURE (HELLBOUND “SAVED SINNERS”) through the LUSTS OF THE FLESH, through much WANTONNESS, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. (THEY HAD ALMOST ESCAPED SIN COMPLETELY AND THOSE WHO ARE IN IT BUT THE COST WAS TOO HIGH AND LOSING FAMILY, FRIENDS, MAYBE A JOB, ETC WAS MORE IMPORTANT TO THEM THEN TRULY FOLLOWING CHRIST SO THEY COMPROMISE UNDER ONE OF THESE DAMNABLE FALSE TEACHERS IN ALMOST ALL OF THE PULPITS TODAY. LUKE 12-51.53 & MATTHEW 10:34-36 COMES TO FRUITION IN A TRUE BELIEVERS LIFE.)
2Pe 2:19 While THEY PROMISE THEM LIBERTY (A WIDE PATH TO DESTRUCTION PACKAGED UP AS A SALVATION MESSAGE), they themselves are the SERVANTS OF CORRUPTION: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage. (THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH).
2Pe 2:20 For IF AFTER THEY ESCAPED THE POLLUTIONS OF THE WORLD (THEY TRULY CONFESSED AND FORSOOK SIN) through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ (THEY WERE ORIGINALLY SAVED LIVING HOLY – THEY ESCAPED SIN AND ITS CLUTCH), they are AGAIN ENTANGLED THEREIN (WENT BACK INTO WILLFUL SIN), and overcome, THE LATTER END IF WORSE with them THAN IN THE BEGINNING. (REVELATION 3:15-16)
2Pe 2:21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness (TO HAVE NEVER PROFESSED CHRIST AND BE SAVED), than, after they have known it, to turn (AWAY) from the holy commandment DELIVERED UNTO THEM.
2Pe 2:22 But IT IS HAPPENED UNTO THEM according to the true proverb, THE DOG IS TURNED TO HIS OWN VOMIT AGAIN; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.” (NO COMMENT NEEDED).
2nd Peter Chapter 3
The Day of the Lord Will Come
2Pe 3:1 “This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I STIR UP your PURE MINDS by way of remembrance:
2Pe 3:2 That YE MAY BE MINDFUL OF THE WORDS which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the COMMANDMENT of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:
2Pe 3:3 Knowing this first, that THERE SHALL COME in the LAST DAYS scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
2Pe 3:4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? (THEY BELIEVE NOT IN JUDGMENT AND HELLFIRE – THEY PREACH AND BELIEVE IN A FALSE jesus) for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
2Pe 3:5 For this THEY WILLINGLY ARE IGNORANT of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing (FORMED) out of the water and in the water:
2Pe 3:6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: (REMEMBER ONLY 8 SAVED IN THE DAYS OF NOAH – THE GREAT & RIGHTEOUS FLOOD).
2Pe 3:7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by THE SAME WORD ARE KEPT IN STORE, RESERVED UNTO FIRE against the DAY OF JUDGMENT and PERDITION OF UNGODLY MEN (SINNERS).
2Pe 3:8 But, beloved, BE NOT IGNORANT of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
2Pe 3:9 THE LORD IS NOT SLACK concerning HIS PROMISE (THE LORD CHANGES NOT), as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, NOT WILLING ANY SHOULD PERISH, but that ALL should come to REPENTANCE. (AN ABSOLUTE CALVINIST / REFORMED BAPTIST KILLER!).
2Pe 3:10 But the day of the Lord (2nd AND FINAL COMING – FINAL JUDGMENT) will come as a thief in the night (SUDDENLY); in the which THE HEAVENS SHALL PASS AWAY with a great noise, and THE ELEMENTS SHALL MELT with fervent heat, THE EARTH ALSO and the works that are therein SHALL BE BURNED UP.
2Pe 3:11 Seeing then that ALL THESE THINGS SHALL BE DISSOLVED (THE ONLY ETERNAL IMPORTANCE IS THE HUMAN SOUL), what manner of persons ought ye to be in ALL HOLY CONVERSATION and GODLINESS,
2Pe 3:12 LOOKING for and hasting unto (THE UTMOST EAGERNESS – AGONIZING TO ENTER HEAVEN BY CRUCIFYING YOUR OWN SELF TO THE WORLD AND ALL IT’S DEMONIC HOOKS) the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? (ARE YOU READY?)
2Pe 3:13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, LOOK FOR NEW HEAVENS AND A NEW EARTH, wherein DWELLETH RIGHTEOUSNESS. (MANY PREACH THE “LORD’S PRAYER” “AS IN EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN” YET THEY LIVE DEFEATED LIVES FILLED WITH SIN).
2Pe 3:14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye LOOK FOR SUCH THINGS, BE DILIGENT that ye may be found of him in peace, WITHOUT SPOT, and BLAMELESS. (YOU MUST LIVE HOLY).
2Pe 3:15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;
2Pe 3:16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which THEY THAT ARE UNLEARNED AND UNSTABLE WREST, as they do also the other scriptures, UNTO THEIR OWN DESTRUCTION. (“LET THERE NOT BE MANY MASTERS” / TEACHERS).
2Pe 3:17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, BEWARE LEST YE ALSO, BEING LED AWAY with the error of the wicked, FALL from YOUR OWN stedfastness. (YOU MUST DO YOUR PART. YES, JESUS BECAME THE PERFECT SIN OFFERING BUT TO RECEIVE THAT OFFERING YOU MUST LIVE RIGHTEOUSLY – NOT IN WILLFUL SIN).
2Pe 3:18 But GROW IN GRACE (WHICH TEACHES ONE TO DENY UNGODLINESS AND WORLDLY LUSTS Titus 2:11-12), and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.”
