2 Peter 3v1-10 - The day of the Lord (with Luo translation)

Adobe Acrobat

This is a letter from a friend, verse 1. He has written to warn us about sin and judgment – but not to scare us. He is trying to remind us; to stir us up again so that we can walk in the light and in the truth. It is too easy for us to grow lazy and tired. We begin to forget; we begin to doubt and fear. He is reminding us of what the prophets wrote long ago, and what the Lord Jesus, our precious Saviour, taught himself and by his prophets. Now he wants to remind us about the Day of the Lord, so that we can be ready.

2 Peter 3:1-10

1This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance: 2That 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 Saviour: 3Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 4And 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. 5For 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: 6Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: 7But 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. 8But, 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. 9The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 10But 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. (KJV)
