    1 Peter Chapter 1

    Jesus is the mediator between our Heavenly father and humanity 1 Timothy 2:5, 1 Peter 1:3

    Adams sin brought a curse upon all humanity. Sin and death or( a separation from God and humanity.) Jesus death was a sacrifice for us all to be reconciled back to the father

    1 Peter 1:18 Romans 5:19

    Jesus was baptized by his cousin John the baptist Luke 3:21,22

    Jesus received the Infilling of the Holy Spirit (Jesus did what was pleasing to his father)

    Jesus human nature was transformed and his divine nature allowed him to be in harmony

    with our heavenly father so that he would to be victorious over the weaknesses of the

    human flesh. 1 peter 1:16

    Our hope is in the victory that Jesus demonstrated to us( Jesus is our example )

    We can be reconciled back to God our father if we submit our minds over to him, just

    as Jesus submitted his mind over to the father

    According to your faith,you can submit your human weaknesses over to our Heavenly Father and Jesus, whose Divine Power is greater than our human weaknesses. 1 peter 1: 21, 23

    You can obtain salvation according to the word of God.
  • Fabian adams for verse 5
    How will salvation "be revealed in the last time"
  • Chris for verse 5
    Fabian, we often think of Salvation as being saved from the penalty of our sin through Jesus Christ. But when the Bible speaks of it, Salvation is all-encompassing. That is, we are saved from sin & we are saved till that work of the Cross finally gets us into God's Presence; we also call it our 'completed redemption'. So our salvation from sin is complete & perfect - nothing deficient in what Jesus did for us. But we will only realize the full extent of it, when our Salvation sees it planned end in God's Abode.

    To give an earthly example: you see a man drowning far out in the ocean & you, a proficient swimmer, immediately go out to save him. You reach him & manage to pull him to the surface & keep his head above water so he can breathe. Is this salvation? Yes it is, you have saved his life. But you keep him out there, together bobbing up & down in the waves. You make no attempt to bring him to shore, simply satisfied that he is alive. Both he & those on shore urge you to bring him in but you refuse because you have saved him from drowning & you're exhausted in your efforts. Salvation in Christ is like that & more: He saves you completely (i.e. you now receive his new Life), but it isn't finished if you're left 'bobbing up & down' in the ocean of sin & suffering around you. Jesus ensures that the Work He has started in you will be brought to its full completion when He comes back for you or requires you sooner (Philippians 1:6).

    And the beauty of this example is seen in your willingness to save that man, even though it could well mean the loss of your life. But you went, counting his life more precious than yours. So, Mishael's very moving words, "If you were the only person on earth; He would have done it for you", are so apt when we think of Love so great & unfathomable.
  • Mishael for verse 5
    Salvation has been revealed (offered) to mankind all over this earth for 2000 years by Jesus's followers, all of that time.

    The gospel of Jesus Christ is free to all who will listen to it and desire to be born again into the Kingdom of God. It did cost Jesus everything and his Life to make this possible. If you were the only person on earth; He would have done it for you.

    If you have one or can borrow one, you'll need to read of this in John chapter 3. When you are born again after saying a prayer and receiving Him as your Lord and Savior; your own spirit will be made alive to Jesus. Best connection on the planet.

    Jesus will give to you the gift of The Holy Spirit. To protect you, comfort you, teach you about Jesus; help you stay on an even track; warn you when you get off track.

    You give your sinful life to Jesus, and take His Life, to walk with you for the rest of your Life.

    After an event in history already referred to as the Catching Away of the Church of Jesus; it will be exceedingly difficult to be born again then. Read the Bible (on this website) or get one. Preferably a King James Version. Decide whom you will follow? This dying world system, or Jesus.

    Right now you can talk to Jesus. He will hear your prayer.
  • Patty washington
    I thank God for the KJ version of the bible . I will stay with it. Some of these churches don't even preach the apostles doctrine anymore. And that is what God wants preachers to do. But they are preaching what people want to hear. You must be born again of the water and spirit. God says that in John:3 and the words are written in red. So thats it. God said it
  • Josephine
    Comment* i find it hard to understand kjv. i believe the lord will intervain and give me spiritual interpretation
  • Fred Scanlan
    I have written letters that have been inspired by the holy Spirit. I have a high school edu. Amazing, while reading the old testament I have seen words that I have used without knowing it! Remember Jesus chose 12 men with pure hearts. That is all you need is a pure heart that loves Jesus. He will make the rest happen! Paul not unlike yourself was a pharisee of all pharisees. A levite of the tribe of Benjamin! He will use you to!
  • Chris
    I think one needs to grow up reading the KJV to more easily appreciate its content, as in my case. In fact, when we memorize Scriptures from the KJV, it's difficult to resort to any other translation. Maybe, if you read the KJV and used an Interlinear Bible alongside or Commentary, your study will be better and more richer.
  • Fred Scanlan
    If you think the kjv is difficult reading the interlinear isn't any easier written by George Ricker Berry. The revelation of scripture is conquered through prayer. I have read the KJV since the beginning. In the late 1950 the revised standard version made its first appearance since than we have many,many more. I read the bible literally, for what it says. The holy spirit must not be dictated too. I 'm sorry that you have a hard time with it! But remember why should it be easy It is after all the word of God! Their are many preachers who are making a living today using other texts. If you can get enough church's agreeing on 1 interpretation ,why not have 1 church Remember the hid leaven
  • Chris
    Fred, the points you share are very valid & indeed, with prayer and being in tune to what the Spirit is saying or guiding us in, is paramount. Yet, though the other difficulties presented by using the Interlinear are real, the student does have the opportunity to read the direct translations from the original language (providing faithful manuscripts are being used). It has helped me a lot & caused me to be less dogmatic & judgemental when a Scripture is simply not clear & when the Spirit hasn't given further Light. E.g. 1 Cor 15:29, in reference to 'baptism for the dead'. Unless the Spirit enlightens us or Paul arrives to give us his thoughts, we will always have dispute over this verse.
  • Graham Martin
    I struggle to read the KJV version. I have a 1st class honours degree (proves this means nothing in today's society) and I find the wording difficult. I often lost the story because of the focus needed on the wording. I tried an easy version of KJV but I'm afraid there would be missing pieces. I want to read the KJV version and maybe with God's grace I will understand it if I perservere.
  • Steve
    Do not sin because the grace of GOD is abundant. Fear GOD and keep His commandments; for this is the whole duty of man. Trust in the Lord with all of thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all of thy ways acknoelege Him and He shall diect thy path
  • Fred andJoann Scanlan
    The flesh will begin a separation from the spirit, the word is sanctification ,a renewing of the spirit. Sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ. This is a mystery, only through obedience can we find favor . Peter praises God the Father, for this lively hope,given to us through faith in the Resurrection.The resurrection is the theme throughout both now and forever. This redemption (getting back) He compares to being more valuable than anything in this world that is of any physical value! This revelation is what it means to be BORN AGAIN! The resurrection is the distance between your hand and face, between heaven and earth.This is the kingdom of Heaven! Christ came back and died for us!
  • Teri
    This is a beautiful book, if you keep in mind that Jesus told Peter to feed my sheep. Wow, to go from despair to right standing! This admonishes us to realize the gift we have been given, and not to waste it. It's an inheritance. Praise God, for his words are life to those who find them, healing and health to all their flesh-Proverbs 4
  • Alex
    At Horeb Moses anointed both the book law and all the ppl saying this is what God has enjoined unto you ENJOIN MEANS A MARRIAGE Israel was married to the law and this carried over to the NT Church but this relationship betwn Christ and the Church resulted in a Child called Christianity but the Child was sick and died in its infancy Bathsheba had to travail again Church is gonna travail again.
  • Alex
    Do we not HEAR David and Bathsheba n the new birth.You are dead to the law by th body of Christ that you should be married to another.David had to know Bathsheba thats when the seed was sown resulting in a birth of Solomon Comforter,Christ has to know us thats when the good seed is sown in our hearts resulting in a birth of the h.g The comforter n us.Being bornagain of an incorruptible seed etc.
  • Child Of God!😇😇
    FAITH IS WAY IMPORTANT THEN GOLD AND SLIVER BELIEVE IT GOD IS GOOD!
  • Obbie Beal
    verse 1-25 above is our reminder (those Born Again) to 'Stand-Fast' even though everyday the battles are very, very, intense. We must not forget our duty to keep our eyes on the prize because the war is already won
  • BSP
    Verse 19: Jehovah Godpaid the highest price possible in order to buy us back and that was the blood of his firstborn son, Jesus Christ.
  • BSP
    Verse 14: to live by Bible standards we must make major changes in our thinking and conduct.
  • ALEX
    EVEN IN THE NATURAL A BIRTH REQUIRES A SEED BUT THE HEAVENLY BIRTH REQUIRES A HEAVENLY SEED WHICH ARE THE WORDS OF GOD AS PETER SAID BEING BORNAGAIN OF AN INCORRUPTIBLE SEED EVEN BY THE WORDS OF GOD THUS THERE CAN BE NO NEW BIRTH OR ANY KIND OF FRUIT WITHOUT A SEED JESUS EVEN DESCRIBES THE KINGDOM COMING VIA SEED TH WORD THUS OUR KING IS GONNA BE BORN IN VIA THAT SEED SHE BROUGH FORTH A MANCHILD
  • LORENZO
    THIS IS THE DAY THAT WE MUST AWARE, ON HOW THE WORKS OF THE PRINCE OF THE WORLD DO, FEAR, CRUELTY, DISOBEDIENCE, AND ALL THE WORKS OF THE UNGODLY, BUT THANKS TO THE LORD OUR GOD THAT WE ARE HIS WORKMANSHIP IN THIS WORLD AND THE LIGHT CANNOT BE HID, THAT WE HAVE A PROMISE OF GOD IN OUR HEART'S THAT WE FAINT NOT BUT KEEPING THE PROMISES OF GOD AND TESTIFYING TO BE A CHILDREN OF GOD TO THEM. AMEN.
  • Laura
    Life in this fallen world has painful moments for every living creature. But pain can be redemptive. It can help others, It can show others the love and grace of GOD. It can develop perseverance within us as we battle the old serpent,the devil, the source of suffering. The problem of pain in life is alleviated when we don't allow it to frustrate us or separate us from the GOD'S love. Our LORD knows every wound,every attack, every tear HIS love is the antidote for the toxins of suffering. IN CHRIST JESUS our LORD and SAVIOR.
  • Geraldine Cole
    That right William that is the only way is to be Holy in all manner of conduct be ye Holy Amen
  • BSP
    Verse 16~Jehovah God commands us to become holy. We can't be as holy as God is, but we can strive to become holy in our thinking, conduct, and actions.
  • Believer
    Stand fast !! I cannot see Christ, but I believe in him w/ my whole heart and soul
    You cannot earn your way to the kingdom of GOD! Believe no matter what evil blocks your path. !!!
  • A disciple
    "As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: but as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; because it is written, BE YE HOLY, FOR I AM HOLY." Note carefully, that NOTHING is said about our natural condition or how uncapable we are; like His command to be perfect as our heavenly Father is perfect.
  • A disciple
    Amen Servant! In this, Peter's First General Epistle, the Spirit is especially teaching on how we are to conduct ourselves as Christians in the present evil world, and about the temptations and trials which are sent for our proving and growth and development, in order to be good and faithful witnesses of God's holy Glad Tidings of Christ; and thereby making us fit for His Presence without fear.
