Peter’s Last Days Warning Part I

Near the end of the apostle Peter’s life, he had a stark warning for the church. Nearly all of Peter’s second epistle is dedicated to communicating this warning. He states the issue most fully for the first time as follows: “For we did not follow cleverly devised myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty” (2 Peter 1:16). If we could see Peter in heaven right now, I think he would say: “Have you forgotten my warning? Are you keeping in mind what I told you to keep in mind?” Peter basically says just that: “And I will make every effort to see that after my departure you will always be able to remember these things.” (2 Peter 1:15, and see 2 Peter 3:1-2) Continue reading “Peter’s Last Days Warning Part I”

While there are plenty of frontal attacks that establish this atheistic stance (a HS football coach getting fired for praying on the field, a decorated soldier being demoted and severely threatened because she had a simple bible verse on her desk (?!)), it is just as often furthered by a ground swell which one can sense and feel that instills a kind of fear that says: ‘I’d better stay away from mentioning God here in this part of the report with my child … it’s sort of not allowed, I think, isn’t it?’ Continue reading “‘Remember Your Creator’ – The Salvation of the World Depends on It”

God’s Answer to the World’s Mockery: ‘Behold, He Comes!’

Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming?” (2 Peter 3:3)

I have some good news to share with you: God has an answer to the mocking of man.

Have you ever seen so much mocking and ridicule? It is so bad now that after a terrorist attack, the ‘progressive’ side of society ridicules even the statement: “We’ll be praying for you.” Often just the hint that God may have spoken or impressed something on you is met with ridicule.
