2 Peter 3:1-13

[Read 2 Peter 3:1-13]
When Is The Lord Coming Back? Is He Coming Back?

  1. The End of the Unchanging World (3:5-6)
    1. - In the beginning the earth was formless and void. And by the word of God, it became good and vibrant – teeming with life. That’s change!
    2. - Things were going along just peachy in the days of Noah (or so everyone thought) and this man Noah was saying it is going to rain. No one had seen rain, no one could imagine rain, so everyone believed this was outrageous. They were knocking on the door of the ark when "the sky began to fall."
    God is sovereign and his word shapes reality. That is sovereignty. Sovereign is defined as having supreme power and potency. [When E.F. Hutton speaks, people listen – When God speaks, it becomes reality.]
    "By the same word, the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment."
    Things do not remain constant simply because nothing is happening, They remain this way because God wills it – by the same word that issued change and destruction, preservation and keeping are maintained. The Impatience of Humanity

  2. The End of the Unrighteous World (3:7-10)

  3. The End of the Hopeless World (3:11-13)
