2 Peter 1

1 Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ:

2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,

3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;

6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;

7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.

8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

9 But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.

10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:

11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

12 Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in the present truth.

13 Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance;

14 Knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me.

15 Moreover I will endeavour that ye may be able after my decease to have these things always in remembrance.

16 For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.

17 For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

18 And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.

19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:

20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

  1. 10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:

    11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

    12 Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in the present truth.

    I like the way this is put: give diligence to make your calling and election sure.
    There is nothing like making sure you have did the right thing and you have made the right choice. There should always be the challenge on our part to do the things that will help us not to fall. We must never be negligent in our walk with God, when we neglect certain things, we leave our lives open for a fall.

  2. 2. May God give you MORE and MORE grace and peace as you grow in your knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord. NLT

    And when we add to our faith:
    More virtue
    More knowledge
    More temperance
    More patience
    More godliness
    More brotherly kindness
    More charity…

    8. The MORE you grow like this, the MORE productive and useful you will be in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. NLT

  3. MORE GRACE AND PEACE

    2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,

    The answer is in the verse. MORE GRACE AND PEACE come through MORE KNOWLEDGE of GOD.

    It is frustration to seek MORE GRACE AND PEACE through other venues such as, jobs, relationships, associations and such when the maker of the heavens and earth holds these precious BLESSINGS for us to claim in and through HIM alone.

    Seek the LORD today.

  4. Verses 3-4 MSG “Everything that goes into a life of pleasing God has been miraculously given to us by getting to know, personally and intimately, the One who invited us to God. The best invitation we ever received! We were also given absolutely terrific promises to pass on to you—your tickets to participation in the life of God after you turned your back on a world corrupted by lust.” There were 22 that received their tickets yesterday and now it is our duty to help them further their relationship with the One True God who loves them.

    We must help them build on this relationship as verses 5-9 MSG state “So don’t lose a minute in building on what you’ve been given, complementing your basic faith with good character, spiritual understanding, alert discipline, passionate patience, reverent wonder, warm friendliness, and generous love, each dimension fitting into and developing the others. With these qualities active and growing in your lives, no grass will grow under your feet, no day will pass without its reward as you mature in your experience of our Master Jesus. Without these qualities you can’t see what’s right before you, oblivious that your old sinful life has been wiped off the books.” Lord I pray that you help every Sunday School Teacher and every person that is in the life of these children to help them continue to grow closer to You and receive MORE!

  5. IN GOD I WILL PUT ALL MY TRUST

    10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:
    11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
    12 Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in the present truth.
    13 Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance;
    14 Knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me.
    15 Moreover I will endeavour that ye may be able after my decease to have these things always in remembrance.
    16 For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.
    17 For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
    18 And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.
    19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:
    20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
    21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

    I took all this to show that God does everything decently and in order. I have tried to post this 3 times already with no success but this time I am copying as I write so hopefully No one, nor the enemy will stop what I had to say. A lot of people want to serve God but because they have a lot of experience in other churches or are full of pride want to just step in unto a place of honor. I am not against that if that is what our God and Pastor desires. That is why I began with the Chapter 10 God first want you to listen to His voice and His plans for you. The fact that you have moved to another state or church just goes to show that
    God might have used you greatly in one minister in a church but He is willing to open your future to a sweet new ministry. You might have to begin as a servant and work yourself up, but that is what God has showed you and you might have to learn from other you might consider lower than yourselves. I have been there done that one, when I first came to the church I just wanted to serve I told the pastor just let me clean the toilets…yes it took me for ever but I want it to do it in a way that if Jesus Himself were going to go to the bathroom He would be still saying wow how clean that was… did I ever heard that no, but none the less my heart knew it. GIVE OF YOUR HEART GIVE OF YOUR TALENT, GIVE IT ALL TO HIM IN THE ORDER THAT HE DESIRES, FOR SKIPPING STEPS WILL ONLY THROUGH SEEING WHAT PEOPLE JUDGE OR HURT YOU. AS LONG AS YOU KNOW YOU ARE DOING GOD’S WORK EXACTLY HOW HE ASKED YOU, THEN PRAISE HIM WITH ALL YOU HAVE.

  6. 5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
    6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
    7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
    8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    Groweth. Without groweth there is no life. Even as we get older we still grow. Grow in knowledge. In love. And many other things.

    More groweth.
    More revival.
    More 440

  7. iLove to eat MORE Word

    2 Peter 1:2 NLT May God give you “more” and “more” grace and peace as you grow in your knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord.

    As we go throughout this day I pray that The Pentecostals of Fort Worth would grow in the knowledge of God and that More and More grace and peace would be given to each and every one of us. We are believing that at least 40 children will be filled with the Holy Ghost today!

  8. 4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

    Promises
    Everyone is given a great promise from God but it takes time and many tests to get to a promise and you never know how long it will take to get to you or how it will get to you or when it will get to you, but i will get to you if you keep your feet on the path towards God it will come. but if you stray, it will take longer, you can’t try and make it happen yourself. It doesn’t work like that! Trust God! Love Him above all things! and Praise Him!

  9. 10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:

    James 1:8 tells us that a double minded man is unstable in all his ways. You waver when your mind is not made up- you are tossed about with every type of doctrine. But when we have a made up mind, making our calling sure, we then go on following the Lord, seeking to fulfill his call on our lives. There is only one truth out there; one Lord, one faith, one baptism! Praise God for all those yesterday & today who made their mind to receive the Holy Ghost and obey God’s plan of salvation! Thank you Jesus!

  10. 8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    9 But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.

    Don’t lose track of where God has brought you from in your life. It can be easy to be sidetracked when trouble and tribulations come our way, but if we get lost in our trouble then we can’t remember what God has done for us in our lives, it’s like we are blinded by our troubles, we cannot see the light cause our vision gets covered by the hands of the enemy.

    Job 12:25 They grope in the dark without a light, and he makes them stagger like a drunken man.

    But we must remember we our purged from our habits and sins that we lived in our past lives and that God has made into a brand new creature and we are all children of the Most High.

    And a way for us to remember is to have the knowledge of God into our hearts, to remember his word so we have a solid foundation on which to turn when times get tough for us in our lives. As Christian things only get harder for us when we are strong in the faith, but Jesus helps ease our burden of the weight so we don’t have to carry it all.

    Titus 2:11-14 For the grace of God has appeared bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in the present age. Waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ. Who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works.

    And when we have the knowledge of God in us, we must let it out! Don’t keep it inside but be a light to other people and show that you are a child of God. When we show the fruits of being a child of God: faith, virtue, temperance, patience, brother love and godliness, we are being an example to other and strengthen our own spirit as well

  11. MORE PROPHESY

    19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:

    20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

    21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

    I have not been in this for a very long time like some of he elders but I have never seen a prophesy not be followed by a mighty move of God. When God affirms his word by his spirit it is an awesome thing. I pray that moving forward we have MORE PROPHESY of the men and woman of God that are moved on by the Holy Ghost.

  12. 5-9 So don’t lose a minute in building on what you’ve been given, complementing your basic faith with good character, spiritual understanding, alert discipline, passionate patience, reverent wonder, warm friendliness, and generous love, each dimension fitting into and developing the others. With these qualities active and growing in your lives, no grass will grow under your feet, no day will pass without its reward as you mature in your experience of our Master Jesus. Without these qualities you can’t see what’s right before you, oblivious that your old sinful life has been wiped off the books.
    If you burn out of fire or passion for God you will miss your miracle when it’s right in front of you. But we need a hunger for God and build a strong relationship with him that will never burn out! 🙂 ❤

  13. 8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    9 But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.

    We don’t need to get so caught up in our daily lives that we forget about the mess we were in before God picked us up and put our feet on the right path. We are no longer bound by sin, only because of God’s grace and mercy on our lives. We are now free and abound in faith, knowledge, peace, kindness, and godliness!!

  14. 5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;

    6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;

    7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.

    8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    From addition to multiplication…

    When we become full of the character of God we have the promise of being fruitful and multiplying.

  15. v10 Wherefore the rather brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:

    GOD’S calling and choosing are stable there’s nothing wavering on His part, but we must respond with a life of holiness , as GOD’S GRACE continues working in us , as we mature in a lifestyle of Christian holiness.
    MORE GRACE

  16. “Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.” The word of Jesus (God) is true and forever settled, and all of the word of God, is essential for one’s salvation. All the more why one is wise to read for oneself, and not forsake the assembling together to hear the word of God from the man of God. Dear God, help me to comprehend and be obedient to your word; “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done”. In God we trust! What a mighty God we serve! Thank God for his word. God bless America, Jerusalem, and you all in Jesus name, Amen!

  17. 2 Peter 1:3-4 By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence. And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.

    We have a everything we need for living a godly life by knowing Jesus.  His spirit empowers us to be able to do that which we cannot on our own.  As we get to know more of God our relationship with Him grows and we can help but want to be more like Him.  We learn how to overcome as he overcame the cross.  We learn to bless those that curse us, we simply learn God’s ways by knowing Him, our Lord Jesus

  18. Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:

    11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

    The purpose is the other side. It will all be worth it when we get over there!

  19. 20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

    21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
    Contrary to some beliefs the word of God is not some man made book. It is God inspired utterances. It’s more that just babble but it is the divine word of God.

  20. 5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
    6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
    7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
    8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
    9 But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.

    God is of order. We see here another example of how God is of order.
    (Olivia)
    We are called to continue to grow, and here we are shown a pattern in which we would be wise to follow. We are charged to fight through all obstacles to continue to grow, and we are even told how to do it. The cool thing about it is that everyone can see if we are either growing, or dieing. We are told that if we are doing as this pattern has laid out, we will have abundant fruit, and will continue to have people that we are reaching for coming to repentance and being born again, and if we aren’t, how we become short sighted, and have lost the vision, loose sight o the big picture, and become fruitless.

  21. Healthy Growth

    Peter gives a clear warning “9 But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.” and if you lack “these qualities” (vs8), it will lead to spiritual nearsightedness and even blindness. This problem is so serious that Peter says anyone who does not have these qualities will become so darkened in their spirit that they will forget the forgiveness of sins and cleansing that comes though Jesus alone. Peter is pointing to some of the basic building blocks of spiritual maturity. His giving a DNA code for the healthy believers life. Together, these qualities make believers effective in their spiritual lives and help them grow deeper in their understanding of Jesus and living a life in His name. These core attributes can help us examine our lives for their evidence: faith, goodness, knowledge, self-control, preserverance, godliness, perserverance, godliness, brotherly kindness and most of all love. Healthy growth starts from the inside, at the spirit, and develops physically into these fruits.

  22. 3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

    When we begin to dig deep into his Word and develop a hunger for it not only do we receive power, but we also recieve revelation and instruction on how to live our lives in this human flesh and also in the spiritual realm. His Word will begin to unlock mysteries and teach us things that we have never seen before.

  23. 2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,

    It’s the will of God that we become knowledgeable and know more and more about him. He desires us to have peace. Lord Thank you for mercy and grace. I Need more of you and less of me each day.

  24. 2 Peter 1:3 His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises so that through them you may participate in the divine nature having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.

  25. 19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:
    20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
    21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

  26. 20 knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone’s own interpretation. 21 For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.

    Peter addresses an erroneous statement many had made. Scripture came from God, not man. This is the second counter argument in his letter. The first was his refuting that the apostles made up myths about Jesus Christ. He states they were eyewitnesses of what they saw. There was no imagination involved with their testimony.

  27. And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. (‭2 Peter‬ ‭1‬:‭5-8‬ KJV)

    We are to be adding fruit to our lives that we may thrive in Jesus. When we gather more fruit it shows the world that we follow Jesus.

  28. Knowledge !!!! 2. Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Je’-sus our Lord, 3. According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: 4. Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 2 Cor. 3 : 18 Heb. 12 : 10 5. And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; Thank you for knowledge !!!!
