Welcome to Ning

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold is as pictures of silver.(Prov.25:11) It is so important to speak the right words to people at the right time to produce the right results. When you think of apples of gold in pictures of silver, then you are thinking of wealth and excellence. When we speak wisdom into the lives of others we are making them wealthy. Therefore we must seek God for He is the source of all wisdom and He will give us just the right words needed at the right time.

  • #And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; 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. II Peter 3:15,16

    Thank God for the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation, for this is what our beloved brother Paul taught in many of his letters by the wisdom given unto him by the Holy Spirit. God is not willing that any should perish but that all come to the knowledge of salvation. It is difficult for unlearned and unstable people to grasp this as they seek to twist the scriptures to their own destruction. Yet we have not so learned of Christ, for the Holy Spirit takes the things of Christ and makes them known to us. Praise God for his patience with usward to the saving of our souls. Thank God that Peter brings this to our attention by the power of the Holy Spirit.

  • #Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. II Peter 3:14

    We must be careful to be at peace with all men, walking in holiness, for no man will see the Lord without doing so. Jesus is coming back for a church without spot, or blemish and we have to watch how we walk in this present world. There are many temptations out there to trip us up so be filled with the spirit so that ye will not give in to the lust of the flesh. Let no man steal your crown, but be ye steadfast, unmovable always abounding in the works of the Lord for we know that our labor will not be in vain. I don't want to be smelling like smoke when I enter heaven. So run in a way that you will be at peace with others and blameless before God.

  • #Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. II Peter 3:13

    Peter is exhorting the believers that the ultimate plan of God is for there to be new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwells righteousness according to the promise of scriptures. As those that go into the Kingdom of God will not have new glorified bodies, but after the earth will be purged from all of the corruption of the flesh, there will only be glorified bodies to go into the Kingdom of God, wherein dwells righteousness. What a glorious time this will be as the New Jerusalem from heaven will come down to earth and the righteous saints of God will live there forever.

  • #Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? II Peter 3:11,12

    God will hasten the day of the Lord when he sees us living holy and godly lives. We must watch how we walk, talk, and squawk in these days leading up to the day of the Lord. The world will be going on a building, eating, and marrying until the day of judgment as they were in the days of Noah and Lot. We must be an evangelist to our families seeking to win them to Christ. Noah preaches repent it is going to rain and won his whole family to the Lord and they were all saved in the ark. Christ is our art of safety and every word we speak must be about how to be more like Jesus. As we live for Christ, God will save us from the coming day of judgment.

  • #But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which, the heavens shall pass away with a great noise and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. II Peter 3:10

    Yes the day of the Lord shall be a time of great darkness and shall come as a thief in the night. This period will be the 70th week of Daniel's prophecy of the tribulation, which will last for seven years. It will usher in the Kingdom of God when Christ shall return to earth with the saints and angels. This will be the millennial kingdom, and the devil will be bound for a thousand years, then afterward he will be loosed for a season to deceive the nations, then the fire will come down from heaven, which the elements shall melt away with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Then God will make a new heaven and earth. What a glorious time this will be for the kingdom shall last forever.

  • #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. The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. II Peter 3:8,9

    God is not like us, for one day with God is as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day. So the Lord is not slack concerning his promise, but God is faithful to us, not willing that any should perish but all should come to repentance. The Greek word for repentance is metanoia which means a change of mind about Jesus. God is waiting every day for men and women to turn from their sins to faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. 

  • #For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. II Peter 3:5-7

    These wicked people are willingly ignorant of that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the people perished because the earth standing out of water being overflowed, and now by the same word are kept in store reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. It will not rainwater next time, but fire. We must warn people that the mercy of God is everlasting, but His patience is not. It will come at a time when the people are not expecting just like it did for the antediluvian generation. Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.

  • #This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance: That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Savior: Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days' scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. II Peter 3:1-4

    Peter is writing to warn us of the words of the holy prophets about the false prophets and the scoffers in the last days walking according to their lusts denying the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. They say that since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation and of this they are willingly ignorant of these things. Just as God was patient with the antediluvian generation, He is patient with this generation. A day with God is as a 1000 years, so since Christ died on the Cross it has been two days and God is not willing that any would perish but that all would come to the knowledge of salvation. We must be patient unto the coming of the Lord and warn others to repent, for the kingdom of God is at hand. God will not be patient forever so we must be ye also ready, for at a time when ye think not the Son of man will come.

  • #These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the midst of darkness is reserved for ever. For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage. For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than after they had known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog has turned to his own vomit again and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire. II Peter 2:17-22

    This passage of scripture is known as the way of the prodigal pig, as sure as there was a prodigal son, now there is a way that seems right to a man, that ends in destruction. Just like the son got in the pigpen, he was not satisfied but said I will arise and return to my father's house. The pig that was washed from his squalor is returned to his vomit like the dog because pigs do not love being clean. The end of the person is worst for them than the beginning, since it would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, they are without excuse.

  • #And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it a pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you; Having eyes full of adultery and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: a heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children: Which have forsaken the right way and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; but was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man's voice forbad the madness of the prophet. II Peter 2:13-16

    These false prophets shall receive the reward of their unrighteousness, as spots they are and blemishes. They have eyes full of adultery, as women can feel they are looking at them with their clothes off and raping them. They are covetous cursed children who have left the right way and gone astray following the way of Balaam, who was a crooked prophet who cursed Israel and God had to use a donkey to rebuke him. What a picture of this generation today that we have it is no wonder that there is so much corruption in the Church today. Peter has given us a blueprint on how to spot and avoid people who are as toothless salt today. If we will walk in the light as God is in the light the blood of Jesus will cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Let us go on to maturity trusting in his holy word, for we have come this far by faith leaning on the Lord as the hymn says. May the Lord direct your paths into the way of truth as you follow his commandments, my brothers and sisters.
