A disciple's comment on 3/09/2017, 10:16am...

"ALL THINGS THAT PERTAIN TO LIFE AND PIETY...THAT YOU MIGHT BE PARTAKERS OF DIVINE NATURE." NOT for comfort or support of the necessities of the flesh; but for our sanctification in the Spirit, to grow into the image and likeness of God's character; which is our assurance not to stumble; and of our finally being accepted and welcomed into the kingdom of God.

Peter declared that God "hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and Godliness, through the knowledge of Him", (2 Peter 1:3). The way to become Godly is get acquainted with God Himself - through His Word and having His indwelling spirit to guide him in the reading of His Word.

Dear Brianna - I wasn't 'interpreting' scripture; it was just simply an interesting observation; I didn't 'change' any meanings.

 


Brianna's comment on 1/28/2017, 5:40am...

vs. 20-21
This places great responsibility on Bible translators and teachers. We need to do our research and get God's thinking on the scriptures before we try to explain it. By doing research we will be able to give an accurate answer. We do not want to be interpreting the Bible based on our flawed human philosophy.

I s'pose that this is appropo of - nothing, but I just noticed v. 14 - which harkens back to Jn. 21:19. 1 Pet. is yrs. later from Jn.21:19. I don't imagine Peter 'caught' Jesus' drift right at the time, but by now he's 'experienced' enough - he understands. It's beautiful how the Lord shows you things in His word. I'd never 'connected' these two before now.

Mark 4vs10 says the knowledge to know the secret of the kingdom of heaven!by the spirit of God a Christian doesn't given a limit where to reach in the grace,because the more you grow in the grace of God the more His spirit become active in performing wonders such that you will go beyond your spirit gift,I the bible say I can do all things through Christ who strengthen me!

"For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones." Isaiah 57:15

 


MockingBird's comment on 9/20/2016, 7:31am...

Grace is given to the humble : More Grace is given to the more humble : Humble yourself in the sight of the Lord and He shall lift you up. Peace is multiplied through the knowledge of God's word . I believe to have a close walk with God is to have time in His word and in prayer.

It is true what2 Pt1:2 saysYou will only abound in grace and peace of God and of Jesus christ if you learn of.A similar scripture is given in psalm 92 vrs 13

If we cultivate and practice the things mentioned in verses 5 through 8 this will prevent us from becoming unfruitful or inactive.

 


Michael C.'s comment on 8/14/2016, 10:56pm...

1-11 This is the pure Holy Glad Tidings, and all our instruction from God to be rightly saved, and how to endure to the end and be saved! Just as a clear eye fills the body with light; it is by the Spirit of Truth animating our life in this world, that the work of God is perfected in us. "...For these things in you being possessed and abounding, constitute neither idle nor unfruitful..." (Gk 1550)

 


Lilian's comment on 11/05/2015, 5:10am...

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's comment about verse 19 on 9/13/2015, 5:24am...

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.

 


Isaiah Ayoola's comment about verse 5 on 9/02/2015, 10:04pm...

"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's comment about verse 19 on 8/26/2015, 5:09pm...

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.

 


Ruth Pollard's comment on 8/11/2015, 10:01am...

I lead me to believe that I am to constantly to study Gods' word and believe every word spoken by the prophets which was inspired by the Holy Ghost and Jesus Christ which came from our Lord and saviour Jehovah as known as Yahweh. Know that we must trust in God for everything, knowing God gave his son Jesus Christ all keys , that when we knock the door will be open, ask and it shall be given, seek and you will find. Remember that our saviour Jesus Christ was given all keys, the last keys was taken was to death and he'll which will be destroyed at the resurrection it will be destroyed with Satan and all evil. No more sickness , crying, death, worrying, hunger, fear, pain and hate, nothing but love for one another, under one government that is the kingdom of God. Blessed to see the day comes when we are all one more wars heaven here on earth. Amen and Amen.Faith is the substance of things hope for , the evidence of things not seen. Christ gives me hope. I walk by faith not by sight. Lord keep me faithful. Let me not lean toward my own understanding, but in all things acknowledge the Lord, you will direct my path. Help me with my faith , trust, and understanding. Knowing that you will work things out in my favor. You will never leave me alone nor would you forsake me, You will be with me to the end of the world and the beginning of the new world to come. Thank you so very much, Jesus Christ my Lord and Saviour. Again I apologize for my sins, redeem me to you today and forever more, Amen and again I say Amen. Bless my family, bless our finances.

 


Paul Harmony's comment about verse 3 on 7/20/2015, 7:56am...

As His divine power has given to us all things that pertains to life and godliness through the knowledge of Him that have called us by glory and virtue.--- All believers have been given everything we need in this age and in d age to come by the Father but it can only be obtained by knowing the Giver of these good gifts. That 's why apostle Paul yearned to know God and d power of His ressurection because the more u know Him the more powerful,humble,patient,godly,God-fearing,wealthy,wise,spiritually alert,sound,and all good things u become. According to John17vs 3,eternal life is the knowledge of God and His Son Jesus.That was the life Adam and Eve had b4 their fall.They knew God intimately but when they sought after vain knowledge ,they perished but Jesus came to give us that eternal life which is the knowledge of God and His Son that Adam lost by eating from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Believers perish because of ignorance no matter the title that d believer holds in church. Everything in this life revolves around the acquisition of knowledge. The fall of man was because of the desire to know. When God said let there be light in Gen 1 vs 3,it wasnt a physical light He decreed into being but the light He brought forth was the light of knowledge 2Cor 4vs 6 . It was after He declared knowledge into the world that the earth and sea could understand His decrees to bring forth trees,animals,fishes etc. Remember in Prov 8vs 22 where Wisdom was speaking which says, " The LORD possessed me at the beginning of His way,Before His works of old.Read thru to vs 31. But vs 26 says while as yet He had not made the earth or the fields or the primal dust of the world. As we all know, wisdom is the right application of knowledge.Knowledge was what God spoke into being b4 creation of d world. My point is,it is by d acquisition of the true knowledge of God dat a believer can start living a victorious life and fulfil d mandate that was given to man in Gen 1vs 28. Satan knows this so he would try all the weapons in his arsenal to distract us from studying the scriptures and discovering who you really are in Christ. Finally, it is the Spirit of God that lives in a man who reveals to that man all the things that God has freely given to His sons,1Cor 2vs 12. It takes a seeking heart to receive revelation knowledge from the HolySpirit. "....seek and ye shall find ".God bless u

 


Lou's comment about verse 20 on 7/17/2015, 1:49pm...

Certainly private interpretation is wrong if it goes public without the noble study of the Bereans in Acts 17:11 "Now these were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so. Certainly our understanding might be wrong, but it can also be understood with God 's knowledge, if we truly believe God will answer our knock. "Ask, and it will be given to you seek, and you will find knock, and it will be opened to you. To Joe above, How does the Catholic Church, Protestant churches, or anyone for that matter, square themselves with 2 Peter 1:20? Answer: Acts 17: 11 above, but they have to be honest with themselves and not their traditional doctrines of men. After all if we understand private interpretation is wrong than why do we have one Bible and one God and have hundreds of conflicting teaching and practices if we are all following God 's Understanding Roams 16:16.

 


Grace's comment on 7/10/2015, 12:39am...

Verses 5-8, we, Christians are urged to make every effort to cultivate the fruit of the Spirit in our lives.It is not just about getting saved it is about working out our salvation to be more like Christ. If our lives are going to be productive and fruitful, we ought to go beyond just confessing Christ as Lord and allow Him to really be Lord over our lives to be able to transform us into His likeliness. For us to be fruitful, it is all about Christ

 


Mamboy's comment about verse 12 on 6/18/2015, 9:09pm...

We need constant remembrance of the goodness of the scripture that brings us to repentance.

 


Frederick fields's comment on 6/17/2015, 1:43pm...

clarity and understanding

 


Greg's comment about verse 20 on 5/31/2015, 2:38pm...

This is so wonderful to read. A friend of mine is telling me that I cannot understand the Word of God without someone to teach me, and I say not the case. All that I need is the instruction of the bible which spells things out very clearly.

 


Tonya's comment on 3/30/2015, 1:10pm...

Being led to this chapter only confirms that I am walking HIS path and a new level begins. I have these things spoken and a pure heart and willing to go to the next level in my personal walk with Jesus and also..where EVER he puts me to be used. I am a willing servent.. steward unto my Father which is in HEAVEN and have the power of the HOLY SPIRIT. to go forward.. IN HIS NAME. truth... Shall prevail and alow others to know it is simple as long as they trust and obey. To be CHRIST like can be accomplished

 


Motdaugrnds's comment on 3/14/2015, 4:12pm...

This chapter lays the steps of sanctification out clearly. To me this is MORE than just "milk " now. It is "meat "! And if we are truly determined to perfect our character in a way that pleases the Heavenly Father, we will take strength from the gifts of Christ and make use of the Holy Spirit as we diligently practice our FAITH, adding VIRTUE and KNOWLEDGE, then TEMPERANCE and PATIENCE, continuing on toward GODLINESS and BROTHERLY KINDNESS toward the ultimate goal of CHARITY, which is the greatest of all... These are steps WE MUST TAKE ON THE RESPONSIBILITY OF ACCOMPLISHING! Jesus has already won the victory and given us everything we need to perfect our characters. The ACTIONS necessary to perfect these characters is for us to CHOOSE to do...or not... God did give us free will...
