2 Peter Chapter 3 Discussion

  • Philip Christian Parks on 2 Peter 3
    2Pet. 3:3; scoffers = Psalm 1:1 implies sinners progress in their ever-increasing depravity until they become scoffers in their final state.

    Scoffers scornfully and maliciously mock GOD, HIS SON The LORD JESUS CHRIST, GOD's Word, GOD's people, and all GODly matters to bring disgrace and contempt. These have evolved in their lifestyles for so long, they no longer fear GOD.

    Because JESUS CHRIST has not yet returned as promised, scoffers believe HE will not come again at all. The very existence of scoffers proves these are "the last days" (Jude v.18).

    The reader could argue that these scoffers compose a more blatant and aggressive group than the more private "false teachers who privily shall bring in damnable heresies" (2Pet. 2:1). As followers and adherents of false teachers, these scoffers voice their ridicule more publicly.

    These less than subtle scoffers are "walking after their own lusts" partly because they swallow the "cunningly devised fables" (1:16) and the "damnable heresies" (2:1) of the false teachers (2:1) and have become the "twofold more the child of hell" described by CHRIST (Mt. 23:15). See also John 8:44, Acts 13:10, and 17:5.

    Scoffers deride those who believe Scriptural prophecies regarding CHRIST's Second Coming by declaring that since CHRIST has not yet returned, that is proof HE will not return (v.4).

    Their derisive question regarding "the promise" (v.4) voices their mockery of CHRIST WHO promised a Second Coming that HE cannot fulfill. Not only do scoffers mock the prophecies of the prophets, but they also mock CHRIST HIMSELF WHO prophesied of HIS own Second Coming (Jn. 14:2, 28). Scoffers' denial of CHRIST's Second Coming will not hinder HIS Coming for "The LORD is not slack concerning HIS Promise" (v.9). See also verse ten where Peter emphasized, "But the Day of The LORD will come."

    In the end, GOD will mock and laugh at the scoffers (Ps. 2:4; 37:13; 59:8; Pro. 1:25-26).

  • A ford on 2 Peter 3
    what does verse 17 mean, if we cannot lost our salvation what does fall from steadfastness mean
  • Fred Scanlan - in Reply on 2 Peter 3
    have you ever rode a bike up a steep hill? Half way up you tire? That's when the work really begins. That's when the race is at its peak! That when the steadfastness comes , it starts when you ask yourself do you really believe. Do you believe that He has the power to help you across the finish line . Do you believe every word he has said to you? You can do all things through Christ who will strengthen you! Steadfastness is when u finish with him! While you wait once again for the next race!
  • Gary Lee - in Reply on 2 Peter 3
    In the Greek the word [stedfastness] is [sterigmos] which means; established, strong, fixed, solid. And you can fall from being solid in Jesus or the Word. Read 2 Peter 2: 15-22 where people who have known the way have turned and followed after Baal. Their condition is now worse than before.

    compare the day of the Lord (2 peter 3:10) in the Day of Judgment (2 Peter 3:7)
  • Bob Grove on 2 Peter 3
    2 Peter v 17

    Beware lest you be led away with the error of the wicked , fall from your steadfastness.

    What is the error of the wicked ?

    Any thing that teaches contrary to sound doctrine that The Apostles teach , found in the NT .

    Peter is warning because he knows they will come after his departure .

    And did they come , no unity at all in professing Christianity.

    The solution get back to the Bible and stick with it . There are so many false doctrines you can pick your poison . May the Lord bless you as you prayerfully search the scriptures.

  • Bob Hilt on 2 Peter 3
    Surfing the net you shall find those who deny Paul as an apostle.

    2 Peter 3:15 - And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul (BELOVED BROTHER PAUL) also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;

    2 Peter 3:16 - As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things;

    in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.

    they must deny the book of acts also.
  • Marilyn T on 2 Peter 3
    Oh, how I cherish God's promises. God does not count days like men. One day can be counted as a thousand years and a
    thousand years as one day.Man can not do the Math that God has in store for us.My prayers are to live the best earthly life
    that I can. I really try to live a good life like God told us. Jesus is coming like a Thief in the night and I want to be prepared
    and ready when Jesus comes.

    Who are the true race of Jews black or white peoples
  • Joshua - in Reply on 2 Peter 3
    Here are some of God's words to remember: Romans 9:8 - "That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are NOT the children of God:" IE: Race/blood does not matter to God, only our hearts. The book of Romans is great to hear for this purpose! John 8:24 - "I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for IF YE BELIEVE NOT THAT I(Jesus) AM HE, YE SHALL DIE IN YOUR SINS." Our blood/race is not a "get out of hell free card". There is no such thing.
  • Mickey - in Reply on 2 Peter 3
    Back there in Genesis when God created Adam, God formed him from dirt. Dirt under a microscope, has ALL colors not just black and white.
    When God was giving Adam his work assignments: Adam had DOMINION over animals, cultivating land, sea, and everything EXCEPT man. White people do not have dominion over black people. So we've been out of order since the beginning! All through time, people try to separate the dirt into little piles. God only decreed that believers not inter-marry with unbelievers. Problems arose for everyone who ignored that decree. It had nothing to do with color. So the idea that one color is better than others is racism and that idea came from satan.

    Bible book Song of Solomon 5:10 - My beloved is WHITE white and ruddy, the chiefest among ten thousand.
    Bible book Lamentations 4:7 - Her Nazarites were purer than snow, they were WHITER whiter than milk, they were more ruddy in body than rubies, their polishing was of sapphire:
    Revelation 1:14 - His Jesus head and his hairs were WHITE white like wool, as WHITE white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 15 And his feet like unto fine brass,
  • HOLLY ALLEN on 2 Peter 3
    What do you think "the song of the Lord(Yahweh) was in 2 chronicles 29:27?
    Vs 30 Hezekiah commanded the Levites to sing praise unto Yahweh with the words of David, and of Asaph the seer. Guessing the song was from the Psalms of David??
  • Tim Yahr on 2 Peter 3
    What language was the Gospel of Matthew written in? If it wasn't Greek, did the KJV translators use that text or a Greek text to create their English Gospel of Matthew? Thank you.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on 2 Peter 3
    I meant to say the entire new testament was written in Greek. The old testament was mostly Hebrew with some Aramaic which is a dialect of Hebrew. the so called Hebrew roots groups want to have us believe the new testament was written in Hebrew (ZERO MANUSCRIPTS) and was mistranslated into Greek. They claim the Greeks were antisemitic. Read John chapter 8 sometime and understand Jesus was not talking to the romans.

    John 7:1 - After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him. Act 9:23 - And after that many days were fulfilled, the Jews took counsel to kill Paul him
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on 2 Peter 3
    I have an earned masters degree in the Bible. I assure you the gospel of Matthew was written in Greek, just like the rest of the books of the Bible. There are 5 partial manuscripts of the new testament in Greek and ZERO in Hebrew.
    Face it is was the unbelieving Jews who killed Jesus in John 5:16 - And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day.
    Q: Did Jesus take the Kingdom of God from the Jews?
    A: Mat 21:43 - Therefore say I (Jesus speaking to the Jews) unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. What nation? Greeks who gave us the new Testament

    Hi Bob, this is a great answer. Thank you for sharing your knowledge.
  • Tim Yahr - in Reply on 2 Peter 3
    Thank you, Mr. Hilt. I appreciate you taking the time to respond.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on 2 Peter 3
    Please be careful of the so called Hebrew roots / sacred name groups as they are judaizers who hate grace. Grace is not a license to sin, but laws do not save us. They want to cast doubt on the King James telling you Matthew was originally in Hebrew and mistranslated. It is all a lie of satan. They even deny the name of Jesus and argue continually over the spelling of yeshua / joshua / yahahasuah / ad nauseam...
    Keep an eye on the Noahides also they want us to follow the 7 laws of Noah.
    Where is this in the Bible? Nowhere is where.
    The noahide laws exist only in the minds of Rabbis who deny Jesus as the Christ or Messiah.
    Believing Jesus is God in the flesh is blasphemy to these rabbis

    Yes Jesus will come as a Thief in the Night but only to those who are in Darkness. So what does God say about us who are in the Light? as we can see confirmed in this Scripture 1Thessalonians 5 we will know when Jesus is returning and even now we can see many of the signs He told us to look for. God's Love and Blessings - Anne.
  • Ruben Hartness - in Reply on 2 Peter 3
    Freedomborn--Please check at 25:13--Jesus is speaking-----ye know neither the day nor the hour---from the parable of the fig tree Mar 13:28-33 . The time of the fig with new leaves dates to 1948 when Israel became a Nation again 5th generation ---ALL prophesy must be completed during this generation--now until the seventh trump--
