Wesley's Notes for 1 Peter 5:10


5:10 Now the God of all grace - By which alone the whole work is begun, continued, and finished in your soul. After ye have suffered a while - A very little while compared with eternity. Himself - Ye have only to watch and resist the devil: the rest God will perform. Perfect - That no defect may remain. Stablish - That nothing may overthrow you. Strengthen - That ye may conquer all adverse power. And settle you - As an house upon a rock. So the apostle, being converted, does now strengthen his brethren.

Discussion for 1 Peter 5

    Did no one notice v. 13? "The church that is at Babylon .........saluteth you;........." Peter wrote this; he was the pastor of the Mesopotamian church at Babylon. He wouldn't have sent this salutation had he not been it's pastor. Nor does this name apply to Rome, simply because the Apostles followed after Jesus and would have used 'disparaging' remarks. This was the actual Babylon.

    v. 1 - ".....and a witness of the sufferings of Christ ....."; this reminds me of Lk. 22:61 - and the Lord turned and looked upon Peter. Oh, the sorrow, guilt, and silent recrimination Peter must have felt!! That one phrase brings tears to my eyes. Because, the Lord didn't condemn him, not even silently. His look was of pure love, because He knew beforehand Peter would do this, and He knew why.

    This was edifying to my soul because I have been there and the devil was trying to keep me under his spell but I prayed and now I am free from that enemy. I don't give Satan the chance to re-enter into my spirit.
