2 Peter Chapter 1 Discussion

  • Rosaline on 2 Peter 1
    Where do I find the scripture that has to do with "a thousand years is as a day to the Lord"?
  • S Spencer - in Reply on 2 Peter 1
    Hi Rosaline.

    Note there's 2 parts to this verse,

    ( a day is with the Lord as a thousand years, AND A THOUSAND YEARS AS ONE DAY.

    This verse speaks of his patience, There's no time at all with him.

    Read vs 3 on down to vs 10 to get the context.

    2 Peter 3:8. But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

    God bless.

    Talebearers If you give them attention they will ruin you leaving you with a scar that if proper restitution is not made, the scar lasts for ever. Beware of them. They initiate matters: yet they don't relent taking your word to another person.

    Why not all people come to salvation today

    john 12:37-40 therefore they could not believe, because esaias (god's words on his tongue) saith .....

    luke 22:67 art thou the christ? tell us. and he said (god's word's) unto them, if i tell you, ye will not believe.

    these words came out of god's mouth and god said his words would not return unto him void.

    isaiah 55:11

    philippians 1:9 for unto you it is given in the behalf of christ, not only to believe on him ....

    no one can believe unless god's causes them to believe.

    john 6:29 .....this is the work of god, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent....

    2 thessalonians 2:11 and for this cause (unbelief) god shall send them a strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.

    2 timothy 2:13 if we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.

    luke 3:13 ... exact no more than that which is appointed to you.

    jeremiah 46:17 ....pharaoh king of egypt, is but a noise; he hath passed the time appointed.

    psalms 102:20 to hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those appointed to death.

    job 23 :14 for he performeth the thing that is appointed for me.....

    1 peter 2:8 a stone of stumbling, a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient, whereunto they were also appointed.

    there but by the grace of god, go i.

    Are we still married to spouse in heaven? What about our children and parents are we still a family
  • Chris - in Reply on 2 Peter 1
    Hi Linda. The closest Scripture that comes to mind is found in Matthew 22:23-32.

    A question was asked by the Sadducees (a Jewish religious sect who don't believe in the resurrection) to Jesus: 'if a woman had seven husbands because each one of her husbands died before she did, who would be her husband at the time of the resurrection when the bodies of the deceased rise to be in Heaven?' They asked this question of Jesus trying to trap Him about the impossibility of a resurrection because a woman in this example, would have had seven husbands to deal with in Heaven, maybe all claiming the woman to be his wife & this would be a problem & an impossibility. Jesus answered them about their error in understanding. That in the resurrected state in Heaven, there is no such thing as relationships, whether to enter marriage or to maintain a previous marriage from Earth. Rather, He said, that our relationship will be what the angels of God presently enjoy: being in Heaven to love, worship & serve the Almighty One, rejoicing with one another in sweet fellowship. Will we know each other? I would think that we would, but our focus & desire would only be to our Merciful Father & His Son of Love, all other desires faded away.

    And concerning the resurrection, which the Sadducees rejected, Jesus reminded them that God had spoken to them from the Word: "I AM the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living." Exodus 3:6. That since God was not a God of a deceased Abraham, Isaac & Jacob, that is why God spoke of them as being alive: maybe not in a resurrected state at that point but certainly alive in spirit & would continue to be so in the bodily resurrection.
  • Erich on 2 Peter 1:10
    2 Peter 1: 10-11 is very clear that we, as believers, must hold fast to our faith in Christ for eternal salvation. This, along with many other verses, teach that the security of the believer is conditional, not unconditional. 1 Peter 1:5 even tells us that we are kept by the power of God through faith (present/continual tense). We are to be active followers of Christ, just as Christ says in John 10: 27-28. the ones who are secure are the ones who follow Christ. We are absolutely assured of our eternal salvation as long as we continue in the Father through the Son ( 1 John 2:24-25). We are taught by John in his 1st epistle that the promise of eternal life is conditional on continued faith in Christ. We are told we need to endure to the end ( Mt 10:22).

    Some people think 2 Peter 1: 10-11 has nothing to do with justification, but, sanctification. This is misleading because verse 11 clears explained and expounds on verse 10 to mean eternal entrance to Heaven..... Key word is entrance. If 2 Peter 1:10-11 had nothing to do with our salvation Peter would not have even mentioned entrance into Heaven.

    We can, and should take such comfort in the hope and assurance we have in our eternal life. However, we need to be mindful of the warnings that the writers of the Holy Bible put forth, as well. We must never take our eyes of Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith ( Heb. 12:2). We must never let ourselves grieve the Holy Spirit by partaking in willful sin, as by willful sinning we create and evil heart of unbelief and run the risk of departing from the living God and falling short of entrance into His rest- Heaven ( Heb. 3: 12- Heb. 4:1). We must remain in God's word for guidance and instruction. By doing so, we will grow in our walk with Christ. We must always remember, He is the vine, we are the branches. We can do nothing without him. If we do not abide/remain in Christ we are cast off and burned, which is synonymous with hell ( John 15 1:6).
  • Jimmy Walker on 2 Peter 1:3

    If anyone is interested. Another site that is a great tool, tons of information, to see the actual words of the Bible from the original Hebrew(Old Testament) or Greek(New Testament). As It has every word in the Bible. Just type any verse, or word, in the search bar. It will come up with every word our "English" translation came from. Clicking on the Strongs number gives great info about each word. Shows how well the KJV is to the original Hebrew or Greek Scriptures.

  • Deborah L Hopkins on 2 Peter 1:20
    I have been told that there is a scripture that says everyone should speak in tongues every day. I have searched the KJV Bible and have been unable to find any such scriptures pertaining to that. If there is scripture telling us that could someone please help me out but giving me chapter and verse?
  • Stanjett - in Reply on 2 Peter 1:20
    Theres no where in the bible that says "ALL" speak in tongues. There are different gifts of which speaking in tongues is one of them.
  • Church Ministry - in Reply on 2 Peter 1:20
    1 Corinthians 14 probably has that scripture. And you can see Paul teach on what that manifestation is about; how it was used in Church; or not used.

    It's better to prophesy with understanding of what you are speaking.

    In some churches I've attended: these kind of meetings were done at evening during the week. People would come together to Pray for the church, intercede; pray for healing of sick members. Some would very quietly pray in tongues. It was very orderly.

    Sunday services were more about corporate teaching, preaching; prayer for the sick, those who wanted to be born again.

    Sometimes on a Friday night the spiritual warriors would get together and beat up on the devil and his attacks against the members. The HolySpirit will give you the names of the demons. Some people have the Gift of speaking in tongues: which is totally different from "prayer language".

    Again it was done in order.

    The Pastor, and his staff, was present at all the meetings.

    There was street evangelism, and it sure helps to have a church praying and covering you in prayer: that you would find the people who were being drawn by the Holy Spirit.

    Church doesn't have to ever be boring.

  • Richard in Christ on 2 Peter 1:20
    Good day my brothers and sisters.


    You seem to not want to believe that Christ existed before he was born in Bethlehem. Which is all through the Bible. He is the Son of God. With many other names too. Can you explain some of these verses with your interpretations?

    Ephesians 3:9 - And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:

    Colossians 1:13-20

    Hebrews 1:1-2- God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

    John 3:12- If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? (Jesus knowing about things of Heaven, if His Spirit had not been there before?)

    John 6:38-39- For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of Him that sent me. And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.

    Revelations 19:13- And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

    In Revelations God says he is the Alpha and Omega. Also Jesus Christ says He is the Alpha and Omega.

    There's more also. If you can't believe things in the Holy Scriptures. Ok, I don't look down on anyone. But please don't say we're making these things up or have a false view. It's not that hard to see. Especially with the Holy Ghost.

    God Bless everyone. Have a wonderful day!
  • Rob - in Reply on 2 Peter 1:20
    If you are in Christ then Christ reveals the hid things of God to us , it's not a mystery to those that actually abide in Christ .

    Those out side of Christ can not enter into these things because they don't believe his word .
  • Wayne - in Reply on 2 Peter 1:20
    do you think your the first one to say this ? the Bible may be interpreted to support any claim or opinion at hand, a kaleidoscope of words revolved magically by an individual interpreter into any pattern desired.
  • Rob - in Reply on 2 Peter 1:20
    The word of God said it and I Fully agree .

    Sounds like you don't .
  • Wayne - in Reply on 2 Peter 1:20
    Will you see the Bible can be very ambiguous about many things and different people interpret it in different ways that's why we have so many different denominations of Christianity and so many that don't agree with each other , because they all believe that they are the ones that God is speaking to and they interpret the scripture the way they want to interpret it because of its ambiguity, so that makes me highly suspect of somebody that says God is telling them something , and some people take these differences very seriously like you see in the Middle East or say in Ireland and many other parts of the world,And I didn't say whether I agree or disagree I was just stating a fact that a lot of people say that exact same thing.
  • Glad you39re here - in Reply on 2 Peter 1:20
    Sounds a little accusatory to me? Hang out a while and see what you see. Or read some of the history pages of comment.

    If comments are backed up with a lot of scripture; you might be standing on quicksand.

  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on 2 Peter 1:20
    Hey Rob,

    So as you have nothing to say about any of those verses I posted out of the Holy Bible. I'll just end with this one question and we will go our ways in peace. I don't want quarrel.

    Are you saying Christ is not with me? Thank you. God Bless.
  • Rob on 2 Peter 1:20
    1 Peter 1.20

    No one has a right to form the word of God , their way , like piecing together a jig saw puzzle .

    It does not work that way .

    A person must listen to hear what God is saying in the word through the Spirit of the word of God .

    It's spiritual . And Gods Spirit is the true teacher , if not you end up with lots of errors , that can even make sense to men but it's not Gods meaning and therefore false no matter how genius it seems .

    Amen and Glory to God for His Word.

    On 2 PETER 1:4

    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 a few hours a week ( Acts 7:48; 17:24), 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; Gal. 4:8; Rev. 12:9). This is how Satan has transformed Himself into an angel of light ( 2 Cor. 11:13-15).

    Only through 'True Repentance' will God be able to reveal Himself, and adopt you as His sons and daughters ( Rom. 8:15,23; 2 Cor.6:18; Gal. 4:5; Eph. 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 ( Rev. 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; Gal. 1:16; Eph. 3:3,5; Rev. 1:1). It is a narrow way that leadeth unto 'Life', and few there be that find it ( Matthew 7:14).

    2 Peter ch 1 verse 19

    I just love it , it keeps me coming back for more !
  • Trapp on 2 Peter 1:20
    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.
  • Fred Scanlan on 2 Peter 1
    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..
  • Marlene Garcia on 2 Peter 1
    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
