    How do the following Scriptures add to your understanding of what Jesus Meant?
  • Bob Grove on 1 Peter 1:5
    1 Peter 1 v 13

    We are to receive grace for the REVELATION of Christ .

    that's when he comes it will be a full revelation, every eye will see him , and it will be in the glory of God . Men will seek to hide in the caves to escape the presence of God but we will receive the much needed Grace at that time ! Admiring Him etc . Even so come Lord Jesus !

    The following verses tell us we need to live holy lives to the end .

    Sin is not an option.
  • Victoria on 1 Peter 1:16
    What and how do you worship god
  • Mishael - in Reply on 1 Peter 1:16
    Jesus taught us to pray the Lords Prayer. I was taught, after each sentence to pause and worship, like: Hallowed be thy Name...and then you add your worship to that statement.

    Sometimes I put on worship music and sing with the choir. It loosens up our inward parts so we can sing, or cry, and begin to release all those cares that have us bound up tight.

    Dark thoughts are demons that don't want you to worship God and Jesus. If you start serenading God; the demons are going to leave!
  • Growing Closer to Your Father - in Reply on 1 Peter 1:16
    You read His Word, with new born again eyes. To see His love unfolded throughout our history with Him.

    To run the limits of wickedness until in agony of soul we bow our knee and ask Him to come in and help us finally. And He does.

    I had to become very old to hear a Fathers heart poured out in the Book of Lamentations. His sorrow over a nation and a people who would stubbornly reject Him time and time again. The pure pressure of Gods heart would almost make my heart implode, because me and people He loved would just wander away.

    How could we be such rockheads? And yet every time we turn and mourn the sins we did that drove us away from Him, is what drives us back into fellowship with Him.

    He is so Holy, He cannot look upon sin; or hasten to us. He had to give His very own Son, to mediate for us. A Son that was willing to show us what Father is like.

    How, please tell me how can we just step over that, and ask unfeeling questions like: is inter-racial marriage ok?

    And then you want someone else to search the Bible for you .... because you don't search the scriptures yourself.

    God used to spend the early evenings, walking with and talking with Adam. He still does that With people who have their hearing tuned in, by way of The Holy Spirit.

    You can have that relationship that you truly want, but are afraid to lean into and make it happen. Turn the sounds of the world OFF, sit in the floor by your bed, still your mind, listen. Pray what is on your mind. Listen.

    Sing something your spirit loves. I sing an old song named: and He walks with me and He talks with me, and tells me that I'm His own.... Other days I may cry. Why? Because God the Father is what the heart longs to know. Jesus is seated at the right hand of the Father; and you can sit and ask Him to pray for people who desperately need Him now. Like: remember my brother in your prayers, for he needs a miracle in his relationships with those that love him and want him to be saved.

    1 Peter 1:23

    By nature every person is born in sin through the sinful seed of their natural fathers and conditioned therein (1 Peter 1:23). For that reason and in order to become a son of God, which are born of God, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God, a person must be 'Born Again' (John 1:12,13; 3:3-7; 1 John 3:9; 5:4).

    By attending a man-made institution (Acts 7:48; 17:24) a few hours a week does not mean that a person can make a claim that they are followers of Christ and 'Born Again'. That is falsehood, as in truth they follow after an image of a false god and a false Christ (Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; Galatians 4:8; Revelation 12:9). This is how Satan has transformed Himself into an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:13-15).

    Only through Repentance will God be able to reveal Himself, and adopt you as His sons and daughters (Romans 8:15,23; 2 Corinthians 6:18; Galatians 4:5; Ephesians 1:5; Hebr. 12:5; 1 John 3:1).

    The word 'Repent' means a lot more than what people by nature have been conditioned to believe. It is the key principle of all the teachings of Jesus Christ and the axiom (basis) of the Word of God and a prerequisite and primary requirement for the salvation of mankind. It actually means the changing of spirits - to turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18).



    For a better understanding and the 'spiritual truth' of what it means to repent, and learn how and by whom mankind has been deceived (Revelation 12:9), and what people must do to be reunited with the true and living God, we invite you to seek Him according to the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive (John 14:17).

    You need not that any man teach you (Isaiah 54:13; 6:45; 1 John 2:27), It is only by revelation of God that you will come to know Christ (Daniel 12:4,9; Amos 3:7; Matthew 16:17; Luke 2:26; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:10; Galatians 1:16; Ephesians 3:3,5; Revelation 1:1). It is a narrow way that leadeth unto 'Life', and few there be that find it (Matthew 7:14).
  • Shaarei on 1 Peter 1:9
    Glory to our Lord forever and ever . Receiving the end of your faith ( Entering into Our Lords Kingdom ) even the salvation of YOUR souls

    1Corinthiann 13:12

    For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known

    We are being entered into our Father NOW!

    Glory to The King of all days

    We return with our Lord...in our Lord

    1 Thessalonians 2:19

    "For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming?"

    YOU WILL KNOW WHEN YOU HAVE OBTAINED!

    Philippians 3:14

    "I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus."

    Our Father bless you and lead you to His paths of righteousness for His names sake in Jesus mighty mighty name
  • Pastor ronald on 1 Peter 1:7
    this context is not about losing our Salvation
  • Hilda on 1 Peter 1
    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 on 1 Peter 1:5
    How will salvation "be revealed in the last time"
  • Chris - in Reply on 1 Peter 1:5
    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 - in Reply on 1 Peter 1:5
    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 on 1 Peter 1
    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 on 1 Peter 1
    Comment* i find it hard to understand kjv. i believe the lord will intervain and give me spiritual interpretation
  • Fred Scanlan on 1 Peter 1
    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 on 1 Peter 1
    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 - in Reply on 1 Peter 1
    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 - in Reply on 1 Peter 1
    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 on 1 Peter 1
    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 on 1 Peter 1
    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 on 1 Peter 1
    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!
  • Jack Gutknecht on 1 Peter 1
    It is a living hope because it is grounded on the living Word of God 1 Peter 1:23 and was made possible by the living Son of God who arose from the dead. A living hope is one that has life in it and therefore can give life to us. Because it has life, it grows and becomes greater and more beautiful as time goes on. Time destroys most hopes they fade and then die. But the passing of time only makes a Christian s hope that much more glorious.
  • Teri on 1 Peter 1
    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 on 1 Peter 1

  • Alex on 1 Peter 1

    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
