    How does 2 Peter chapter 3:2 validate the old testament?

    Jesus himself is the word of God. He who drinks the living water shall never be thirsty. This is the promise of our Lord Jesus Christ. Thanks to Jesus for shedding his blood to us so that all may have life in abundance. God's words are more important to meditate than prayers. God's words are more powerful than the edge of the sword.
  • Virgil Larson for verse 19
    Which is it? We have also a more sure word of prophecy or So we have the prophetic word made more sure, I cannot tell since I am not a greek scholar, But I do know which one makes more sense to me, and I do appreciate that the American Standard version indicates that the words so and made are supplied suggesting to me that even the translators are not that sure. I feel it is very significant that Peter s experience at the transfiguration did not sustain him during the events of the crucifixion. . Because of his faulty understanding of prophecy Peter denied Jesus. Nicodemus on the other hand remembered the words of Jesus, the son of man must be lifted up and boldly came forward. The words of Jesus to his disciples I am telling you before it comes to pass so that when it does occur, you may believe that I am He, came true for Nicodemus. But even though the disciples on the road to Emmaus had heard that Jesus was raised from the dead, they were still deeply depressed because of a faulty understand of prophecy. So Jesus hid his identity until after he gave them a through bible study on prophecy. Luke 24:13-25. Previously Jesus taught that an understanding of prophecy will protect believers from the overwhelming deception of false teachers and false Christs who will work great sings and wonders. Our safety is in the word of God, not miracles. Matthew 24 Mark 13, Revelation 13.

    Let's understand the word SURE it means certain, reliable, confirmed. Base on this fact there is no word of the scripture that is not reliable, certain and without confirmation, as written in Jer. 1vs12: "...For I will hasten my word to perform it". If there is no assurance of the word then it's not of God, for every word of God is a prophecy that is reliable.
  • Isaiah Ayoola for verse 5
    "Giving all diligence" means to be painstaking, this is to say that you must be ready to give all it takes to add virtue moral excellence to your faith in God and our Lord Jesus Christ. Moral excellence make us a genuine born again Christian. Faith that doesn't correspond with Godly moral excellence living is fake. "Not all that call me Lord Lord will be saved" Jesus said. May we not miss heaven in Jesus name. Amen
  • Dwight Hartmark for verse 19
    The Bible in its completed state, is reliable above anything else. Even more than centuries of tradition. The Bible is to be valued and trusted over our very own personal experiences.
