  • Trapp for verse 20
    I totally agree with you. Interpretation of scripture, does not come from man but from God (by his Spirit. Romans 8:8-9. The Bible itself is the inspired Word of God and men wrote the bible as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. So even the prophets of old ( Moses, David King Solomon, etc) those that wrote scripture, did not write of themselves, but wrote as the Spirit of God rested on them.

    Strict interpretation of Gods word is the fulfilling literally of Gods prophecy.New believers are subject to many distractions when coming to the truth. Christ declares these truths in the parable of the sower. A believer is one whose soul is anchored in the word of God. this website is that place(KJV).This becomes a light unto your path.Once the soul unites with the vine,the revelation of his love will give you joy unspeakable! You become a new creature. IN AN EVIL WORLD , thats what our God has made us in HIM.Like apostles and prophets we inherit the grace needed to exalt Him. This is when the holy ghost begins his move, as moved in the O.T..

    it clearly states in verse 8 if we apply all these characters to our nature that we shall neither be barren or unfruitful. It also states in verse 4 that when we submit ourselves to the promises of God that we shall be partakers of his divine nature. escaping the evil lust of this world. Amen
    2 Peter 1 explodes with how our "knowledge of Him" affects every area of our lives. When born again, we have a new have new hearts. Reading studying the Holy Scriptures then is more than "head knowledge." It is a deeply transforming heart and mind Romans 12:1-2 . The Spirit teaches us God's thoughts and ways. In word and deed, we can then reflect the righteousness of God.

    I think it has a lot of love and brotherly love

    No prophecy of the Scripture is of any private interpretation; for it required the coming of Jesus Christ with the Holy Ghost. But now do ye all prophesy, confessing not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh, shewing ye are false Christs and false prophets. So it is written, For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
  • Taylor
    Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. Verse 20
  • Obbie Beal
    verse 2-8 is 'another reminder' to those in CHRIST; verse 2-8 is liken unto the foundation / knowledge offered to be learned in school (home then grade 1-8) that prepare one for grade 9-12; thereafter hopefully 70 years of life and it's daily trials /battles; hopefully we rightly and timely learned because it is a intense battle to do in the winter that which we should have done in the spring.

    This no doubt was Simon Peter's dying declaration.
    In 2Peter 2:1, he declares expressly that grace, can be multiplied, in essence there can be a state of gracelessness, grace, additional grace and multiplied grace.
    We can have as believers all that pertains to life and godliness, yet they come with conditions, even after we've given our lives to christ.
    These conditions are found in 2 Peter 1:4-10

    Kat, that meaning of virtue is referring to Holy Ghost power Luke 8:46. In this chapter virtue is referring to goodness, right standards, moral excellence etc. Hope that helps! Glory be to God in the highest!
  • A disciple
    "Moreover I will endeavor that ye may be able after my decease to have these things always in remembrance." When I think of all the labor and toil, the persecutions and sufferings, that God's Holy One's have undergone in order to bring the Glad Tidings to us today; it is absolutely revolting how so many think that they can still love the world and keep on sinning, and actually think they're saved!
  • A disciple
    Kat; Virtue in 2 Peter 1 is moral excellence or perfection. I love this part in 2 Peter, for it shows us how to walk and not stumble or sin; and the kind of piety that will grant us entrance into the kingdom of God. I read these things, and then the Sermon on the mount Matthew 5-7; and it charges us up with joy and zeal in the Lord, knowing that He gives us everything to succeed in following Him!
  • Kat
    What is virtue is it the mighty power that came out of Jesus when the women touched the edge of His robe
  • Esgdhn

  • A disciple
    "Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: for so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ." It is God's intention, in giving us all His Word, that we know and understand Him; and have all capability to walk in truth and love.

    Verses 5 through 8 points out step by step the qualities we need to cultivate in order to have endurance.
  • Fredscanlan
    Reading your previous comment, that the 3 rd person in the trinity actually moved on Gods servants. His apostles tell us of this mystery. Their witness is a witness for us to believe in and that it would become real to each of us. I really enjoy reading king James version. I've read this version my whole life, and it still reveals something new of God everyday. Thank you for the revelation Peter

    You cannot believe in evolution and Creation.......... If the world exists more than a billion years, we will find in every place a lot of bones, skulls etc. etc.. Men always like to show of to others how much they know, but the more we think we know, the more we realize we don't know and the best is still to come when Jesus returns and has to show us again what matters....Love the Lord, your neighbour as yourself, we still not succeed in doing so , so we look for other ways to fill up the emptiness! At the moment we destroy creation, because satan knows that he has very little time to do so and his servants are already working very hard, but in the end they will not win, because our Saviour will return in time to save us from the madness and then we will realize how foolish we have been in not wanting to know the most important thing in life......to Love!!
  • A disciple
    "Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, according as His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him..." Knowledge is power when we rightly act upon it. We never need be overcome by temptations. When we speak and act according to the truth, and stand on the Word, we cannot fail!
  • Lilian
    Our Father in Heaven had sent his Son Jesus Christ to give us life in abundance simply because He loves us Jesus came to fulfill the scriptures and shared and preach the words of God so that you and I will have light and life this is the true promised of God our job now is to praise and worship Jesus and live like him thanks for your blood Lord amen

    ray: Back up to Matthew when The Persecution and Tribulation started. Paul was a Hitler of that Day! Until he meant the Lord:Acts 9:1-5/---we must through much Tribulation enter into The Kingdom of God. Acts14:22 The Sixth Seal is opened and The Day of Wrath has come(upon the lost: Revelation 6:12-17/ whosoever was not found written in The Book of Life was cast into The Lake of Fire.Revelation20:15
  • Ray321
    Hebrews through Revelation is for tribulation reading. If we miss the Rapture, then the books of Hebrews through Revelation will come to pass. We can learn from these books, but we must be careful who is it written to. Food for thought. ...

    Faith comes from God.
  • A disciple
    "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.
  • Irene123
    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.
  • Irene123
    Dear Brianna - I wasn't 'interpreting' scripture; it was just simply an interesting observation; I didn't 'change' any meanings.
