Simon Peter, a seruant & an Apostle of Iesus Christ, to them that haue obtained like precious Faith with vs, through the righteousnes of God, and our Sauiour Iesus Christ.
Grace and peace be multiplied vnto you through the knowledge of God, and of Iesus our Lord,
According as his diuine power hath giuen vnto vs all things that pertain vnto life and godlines, through the knowledge of him that hath called vs to glory and vertue.
Whereby are giuen vnto vs exceeding great and precious promises, that by these you might bee partakers of the diuine nature, hauing escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
And besides this, giuing all diligence, adde to your faith, vertue; and to vertue knowledge;
And to knowledge, temperance; and to temperance, patience; and to patience, godlinesse;
And to godlinesse, brotherly kindnesse; and to brotherly kindnesse, charitie.
For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that yee shall neither be barren, nor vnfruitfull in the knowledge of our Lord Iesus Christ.
But hee that lacketh these things, is blind, and cannot see farre off, and hath forgotten that hee was purged from his old sinnes.
Wherefore, the rather, brethren, giue diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye doe these things, ye shall neuer fall.
For so an entrance shall be ministred vnto you abundantly, into the euerlasting kingdome of our Lord and Sauiour Iesus Christ.
Wherefore I wil not be negligent to put you alwayes in remembrance of these things, though yee know them, and be stablished in the present trueth.
Yea, I thinke it meete, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stirre you vp, by putting you in remembrance:
Knowing that shortly I must put off this my Tabernacle, euen as our Lord Iesus Christ hath shewed mee.
Moreouer, I will endeuour, that you may bee able after my decease, to haue these things alwayes in remembrance.
For wee haue not followed cunningly deuised fables, when wee made knowen vnto you the power and comming of our Lord Iesus Christ, but were eye witnesses of his Maiestie.
For hee receiued from God the Father, honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloued Sonne in whom I am well pleased.
And this voice which came from heauen wee heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.
We haue also a more sure word of prophecie, whereunto yee doe well that ye take heede, as vnto a light that shineth in a darke place, vntill the day dawne, and the day starre arise in your hearts:
Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the Scripture is of any priuate Interpretation:
For the prophecie came not in olde time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moued by the holy Ghost.

Remember once we had spoken to God concerning a matter.It is already done! We need to begin to thank praise him for the answer!

1. Peter assumes his readers are believers, not merely professing believers. 2. Peter is discussing sanctification, not justification. 3. Peter says those who make their calling and election sure will never fall, not prove or guarantee their salvation 4. Peter s theme is perseverance that results in reward, not perseverance unto eternal life.

Oh praise the Lord for gifting us with like precious faith as the very Apostles who were eyewitnesses to Christ 's life on this earth and to Jesus ' transfiguration of bright splendorous Light! Hallelujah, His Word is truth and is everlasting and our Lord has done it and it is marvelous in our sights for we are deeply loved, highly favored and greatly blessed and we say Amen!

It is as it is written. They were moved by the spirit as they stood.Stand up so I may speak with the. As they stood the spirit moved them in ways that mimic their writing. For instance if you stand up place your feet together then without moving your feet move your body in a circle that 's an O the rest of the letters R made by the movements that correspond to that letter.Being moved by the holy spirit means just that anything else is false. The only way to receive the word of GOD is to be moved by the spirit.

Ours is to diligently seek God so that we really know Him and all He is about. Thus we gain all we need to fulfill this earthly life and inherit our eternal life. So we are set for life by our oneness in Him who made us in His image.
