The Day of the Lord Will Come

(Gen 6:5—8:22 )
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:1 -

This is now, beloved, the second letter I am writing to you in which I am stirring up your sincere mind by way of reminder,

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:2 - that you should remember the words spoken beforehand by the holy prophets and the commandment of the Lord and Savior spoken by your apostles,
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:3 - knowing this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts,
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:4 - and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation.”
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:5 - For [fn]when they maintain this, it escapes their notice that by the word of God the heavens existed long ago and the earth was formed out of water and by water,
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:6 - through which the world at that time was destroyed, being deluged with water.
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:7 - But by His word the present heavens and earth are being reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:8 -

But do not let this one fact escape your notice, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like one day.

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:9 - The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some consider slowness, but is patient toward you, not willing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:10 - But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and [fn]its works will be [fn]found out.
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:11 -

Since all these things are to be destroyed in this way, what sort of people ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness,

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:12 - looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens burning will be destroyed, and the elements will melt with intense heat!
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:13 - But according to His promise we are looking for NEW HEAVENS AND A NEW EARTH, in which righteousness dwells.

Be on Your Guard

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:14 -

Therefore, beloved, since you are looking for these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, spotless and blameless,

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:15 - and consider the patience of our Lord as salvation, just as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given him, wrote to you,
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:16 - as also in all his letters, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which the untaught and unstable distort, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction.
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:17 - You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, be on your guard lest you, having been carried away by the error of unprincipled men, fall from your own steadfastness,
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:18 - but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.
